What did we learn from the public hearings & is #impeachment and/or removal more/less likely for Pres. Trump? I joined TVC News Nigeria to discuss & analyze.
“The televised #ImpeachmentHearings only make sense when you accept that Republicans refuse to even acknowledge what happened, much less than it was wrong.” @tvcnewsng #Nigeria #ImpeachmentInquiry #Ukraine
“Pres. Trump pulled out of the #ParisClimateAccord to strengthen his 2020 argument that he’s putting #AmericaFirst. But he’s misrepresented that the accord was the #US subsidizing the rest of the world’s #climatechange efforts. FALSE.” @tvcnewsng @RCCommsDC #GlobalWarming
1. Democrats have called Trump/GOP’s bluff that they wouldn’t go on record with a vote. (Check, it’s ✔️.)
2. All Dems but 2 voted for the inquiry; no Republicans did. For GOP in deep Trump districts, they’ll be aiight. But this wasn’t a vote to impeach, it was to just officially open the investigation. How is a GOP Rep in a moderate district going to explain that they wouldn’t even vote for an investigation into very serious allegations?
3. The American people get to see & hear the testimonies, which will be more enlightening than the spin coming from either side.
What do protests in #Chile, #Lebanon & #HongKong have in common & what does it say for the state of #democracy & #governance around the world? I joined TVC News Nigeria to discuss.
