House Speaker Nancy Pelosi revealed to CBS’s Lesley Stahl on 60 Minutes Monday that “one of the motivations” for pushing for the impeachment of President Donald Trump days before he’s set to leave office is to prevent him from running again for office.

Many Congressional Democrats pushing for impeachment now argue that President Trump incited Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol in a speech he gave moments before it occurred.

During his speech just before Congress was to certify the electoral college results, Trump told supporters, ” We’re gonna walk down…to the Capitol and we’re gonna cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women and we’re probably not gonna be cheering so much for some of them because they’ll never take back the country with weakness, you have to show strength and you have to be strong.”

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-MN, who is joining Pelosi’s calls and is set to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump Monday, says, “we cannot afford to really see this man in office any longer.”

However, attorney Jonathan Turley argues “that this impeachment will not only create precedent for an expedited pathway of ‘snap impeachments’ but allow future Congresses to impeach presidents for actions of their supporters.”

Trump was previously impeached by the U.S. House in December 2020 for Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress over his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The Senate later acquitted Trump on both charges.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
