Rep. Steve Scalise unloaded on the Democrats’ never-ending “witch hunt” against the President this week; saying they’re simply trying to “appease their base” and have no interest in finding the facts.

“What you’re seeing on full display is the laying of the foundation to impeach the President by the Democrats. They don’t want to get the facts, they first want to know what their endgame is. Their endgame is to impeach the President whether or not the facts back them up,” said Scalise.
“This is beyond a witch hunt. This was all supposed to be about collusion with Russia. There’s been no collusion found… They’re trying to find any excuse to appease their base who wants the President impeached,” he added.
SCALISE: Democrats' ‘Call for Violence’ a DIRECT Threat to Democracy
Rep. Steve Scalise urged his congressional Democratic colleagues to tone-down their outrageous calls for violence Thursday; warning the protests and confrontations with GOP politicians across the country pose a “direct threat” to American democracy.
Scalise -who was critically injured when a lone gunman opened fire during a congressional baseball practice- called-out Rep. Maxine Waters and former Attorney General Eric Holder for inciting “anger, harassment, and violence.”
“Despite the continued reports of politically motivated threats or violence, Democratic Party leaders have worked to keep this anger burning and incite even more harassment and violence,” writes Scalise.
“Beginning with my own near-death experience at the hands of a deranged shooter who sought to assassinate a baseball field of Republicans, there is a growing list of violent or threatening actions taken against conservatives by Democrats,” he adds.
“If this is going to stop, it must start with Democratic leaders, who need to condemn, rather than promote these dangerous calls to action,” Scalise says.

BACKLASH GROWS: Scalise Says Omar Should be REMOVED from Committee, BLOCKED from Intel
Rep. Steve Scalise joined the growing chorus of legislators calling for the removal of Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee Tuesday; saying she should no longer have access to classified briefings regarding the State of Israel after her anti-Semitic rant.
“Right now, she sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee. She’s able to get classified briefings on foreign policy, especially as it relates to Israel. She’s made statements, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish statements, aligned herself with anti-Semitic people as well,” said Scalise.
“She should be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Nancy Pelosi should remove her immediately,” he added.
