Mention Last Night 5 replies
RUSH: I mean, they’ve tried everything. They’ve tried impeachment. They’ve tried Mueller. They’ve tried… Look at what they didn’t mention last night. They didn’t talk about border walls. They didn’t talk about immigration. These are issues people care about! They didn’t talk about security. Personal, individual, national, they didn’t talk about it. They didn’t talk about the need to appoint judges, to win so that they get to pick the judges. They didn’t talk about Kavanaugh. Wouldn’t it have been ideal for Kamala Harris to revive what she did, how she deserved to be on this ticket because she was the ringleader of the get-Kavanaugh movement?

A House Democrat on Friday proposed the creation of a Presidential Crimes Commission, a panel that would investigate allegations against President Trump and his administration after he leaves office. “I don’t say this lightly: when we escape this Trump hell, America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission.

There are rumblings that Kamala Harris may not be eligible to be Vice President under the 12th Amendment, by virtue of her not being eligible to be President since she is not a ‘natural born Citizen’ (“no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States”). (Snip) I examined a similar issue in 2013 with regard to Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, and Ted Cruz, and concluded in an 11,000-word analysis that they were eligible. See my post, natural born Citizens: Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz.
