WDAM – Chris McDaniel says Trump impeachment “pure politics”
Mississippi state senator and former U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel says the impeachment of president Donald Trump is “pure politics.”…
…”We know why (Nancy Pelosi) is doing this,” McDaniel said. “It’s pure partisanship, it’s pure politics.”
“(Impeachment is) not going to change a single vote,” McDaniel said. “They got their impeachment in the House, the Senate is going to acquit and (Trump is) going to be re-elected. It’s not going to change a single vote. Lets’ not get focused on the things that matter. Let’s make sure that Nancy Pelosi is placed in a position where she’s exposed for who she is. Let’s make sure Congress as a whole, is placed in that same position.”

Stokes plans to introduce an ordinance next year that would ban certain advertisements in the city.
