Eric Swalwell Tries To Impeach Trump At Hur Hearing, Gets Frustrated When Hur Won’t Help | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) used up his time during a Tuesday hearing on Capitol Hill to lay out a case against former President Donald Trump - and then appeared to get frustrated when the witness, Special Counsel Robert Hur, refused to help him do it.

    Hur testified Tuesday on his investigation into President Joe Biden and his handling of the classified documents that were found in his possession - but instead of asking him about that, Swalwell behaved as though it was another Trump impeachment hearing and asked Hur to condemn the former president.

    WATCH:


    Swalwell began by addressing Hur's personal history, saying that he had been "moved" by Hur's parents' "immigrant story" - and within seconds, he had pivoted to attacking Trump, claiming that the former president would put an end to immigration if he had a second chance in the White House.

    "It's the story of America. It's a story that the guy who appointed you would end if he was put in charge again," Swalwell said, making no distinction between legal and illegal immigration, and adding that Republicans across the board were behind Trump on that issue.

    Swalwell pivoted again, asking Hur whether he wanted his report on the Biden investigation "to be received with credibility" - and then immediately implied that in order for his report to be credible, Hur would have to disavow Trump.

    "Since you were appointed, he was impeached for leveraging 350 U.S. - $350 million U.S. taxpayer dollars over Ukraine to get dirt on President Biden," Swalwell said. "He was then impeached a second time for inciting an insurrection. He was charged for possessing classified documents and obstructing justice. He was charged for paying for the silence of a porn star. He was charged in Georgia for his role in January 6th. He was charged in the District of Columbia for his role in January 6th. He owes $400 million to the state of New York for defrauding the state through his taxes. And he has been judged a rapist."

    Swalwell then turned to Hur, saying, "You want to be perceived as credible, so I want to first see if you will pledge to not accept an appointment from Trump if he is elected again as president."

    "Congressman, I am not here to testify about what will happen -" Hur pushed back, but Swalwell did not allow him to finish.

    "Seems like an easy answer," he interrupted. "Considering I just laid out -"

    "I'm here to talk about this report and the work that went into it," Hur stated.

    Swalwell tried one more time to get a condemnation from Hur: "You don't want to be associated with that guy again, do you?"

    Hur refused to budge from his initial position: "I'm not here to talk about Trump; I'm here to talk about this report, which investigated Biden."

In the face of a known scandal finally being revealed by the corrupt Legacy Media regarding Joe Biden, his Mishandling of Classified Documents and his long history of Influence Peddling to our Foreign Adversaries for Personal and Familial Profit: What do you believe the outcome will be in America's Leftist practice of a Two Tiered Justice System?
  Nothing will happen since the Democratic Socialist Left is corrupt to the core, and their non patriot ambitions are only the control of power.
  Justice WILL be served, but NOT without a tremendous fight by those willing to save the Republic.
  Why can't everyone else understand that the Left is special because we care so much for our own, especially the well being of the president and his family, especially Hunter.
  What difference does it make; I am a product of a failed public education system.

Considering the deep morass of complete incompetence at the Federal level, in the executive branch of our self-governed People, unarguably the worst in modern times; if certain changes could be made by Impeachment of those most qualified: Who would be your best choice because of abject Corruption, incompetence, or both?

Considering that the 2024 Presidential Election has fully begun, and the Biden Administration has consequently fully weaponized the Biden DOJ /FBI to attack all political opponents under the penalty of felonious judgement for many of the same alleged crimes, or worse, committed by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden himself: Are you comfortable with this level of overt corruption within the Executive Branch?
  Yes; if Democratic Socialists are to complete the remaking of this "Democracy," the End will Always Justify the Means.
  No; in a Constitutional Republic, the Rule of Law is paramount, which means the law MUST be administered evenly
  Who cares; I am just so ambivalent to all this grown-up stuff.
