Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) on Sunday mentioned the Home of Representatives “has grow to be a legislation agency, with only one consumer, Donald Trump” as Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has didn’t shepherd a spending invoice that might keep away from a authorities shutdown by the top of this month.
Swalwell mentioned many Republicans by no means got here to phrases with the truth that Joe Biden defeated Trump in 2020, which he says is clear of their resolution to start an impeachment inquiry into the president with no proof of wrongdoing.
“And this week, at the same time as we’re hurdling in direction of a shutdown, they’ll maintain impeachment proceedings, which is only a continuation of the revolt,” Swalwell advised MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki.” “And so, that is all about simply placing Donald Trump in cost. The Home, sadly, has grow to be a legislation agency, with only one consumer, Donald Trump.”
“He might have the title, however Donald Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz — all of them share the job,” Swalwell mentioned.
Greene on Sunday issued an announcement saying she stays firmly against voting for the spending invoice.
“Voting sure means extra money for Ukraine,” she mentioned.
In the meantime, Trump has been urging his allies within the Home to refuse to help the bundle, saying Biden would get the blame for a shutdown.
“UNLESS YOU GET EVERYTHING, SHUT IT DOWN!” Trump wrote on Fact Social.
