AUSTIN (1080 KRLD) - Texas Senior Senator John Cornyn calls out Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the House proceeding with articles of impeachment against President Trump.

On a Conference call with reporters on Thursday Cornyn challenged Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s leadership of House Democrats. “She knows that a partisan impeachment process will never be successful in removing President Trump. But I think she’s lost control of her own radical base.”

Cornyn calls the Speaker’s latest announcement unfortunate. “I don’t believe she thinks this is a prudent action from a political standpoint. Some have predicted this goes a long way to ensuring President Trump’s re-election because of the perception this is a partisan exercise.”

Cornyn also said the impeachment process is blocking Congress from focusing on important legislation like approving the US Mexico Canada Trade Agreement.
