Wilbur Ross says House contempt vote is ‘political theater’


OUR TOP STORY THIS HOUR IS HELD IN CONTEMPT, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES PREPARING FOR A VOTE TODAY ON WHETHER TO HOLD ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR AND COMMERCE SECRETARY WILBUR ROSS IN CRIMINAL CONTEMPT FOR NOT COMPLYING TO FEDERAL SUBPOENAS RELATED TO THEIR EFFORTS TO ADD A CITIZENSHIP QUESTION TO THE 2020 CENSUS. JOINING ME THIS MORNING IS WILBUR ROSS. WHAT IS YOUR EXPECTATION ON THIS CONTEMPT ISSUE?>>OH, THIS IS JUST MORE POLITICAL THEATER. IT DOESN’T REALLY HAVE ANY SUBSTANTIVE BASIS. WE PRODUCED TO THE COMMITTEE OVER 14,000 PAGES OF DOCUMENTS. WHAT’S AT ISSUE HERE IS ABOUT A DOZEN DOCUMENTS, ROUGHLY 15 PAGES, ALL OF WHICH THE COURTS DIDN’T FIND NECESSARY TO MAKE THEIR CONCLUSION. SO THIS IS SILLY. I TESTIFIED MYSELF FOR ALMOST SEVEN HOURS BEFORE THIS VERY COMMITTEE. THREE OF MY FORMER SENIOR STAFF PEOPLE INCLUDING ONE WHO IS NOW ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, TESTIFIED AS WELL. WE ANSWERED THOUSANDS OF QUESTIONS. WE ARE NOT STONEWALLING. BUT WE ARE ALSO NOT YIELDING ON THE VERY, VERY IMPORTANT MATTER OF EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE. THESE ARE PRIVILEGED DOCUMENTS. THEY’RE GOING TO REMAIN PRIVILEGED DOCUMENTS AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO BE FRIGHTENED INTO

  1. Telling American citizens that are Congress women that were born in the United States to go live in other countries is political theater.

  2. I think everyone has figured it out and its showing Americans the down fall of a democratic house. They follow there own rules and the constitution comes last.

  3. 😁 The "ODD SQUAD" and their followers will do any unscrupulous thing they can to further their own agenda! 😏

  4. Impeach AOC, and her Squad, and other Democrats who don't want to protect our border, time for them to go!!!

  5. Democrats deserve pain for their sins. Pelosi needs her butt paddled soundly and publicly! California should burn for sending nothing but trash to Congress. That's all I have to say about that…

  6. smh. AOC and the squad have become white noise and ineffective. Their only concern is grandstanding for their constituents and increase financial and promotional gains all the while address no issues nor put forth legislation worthy of anyone vote/consideration. Democracy is funny experiment…

  7. If you don't like living in America you are free to leave. Don't be in my face, bitches! I support this point of view…

  8. And I must say its comical to see how they the Bumbling 4 miscreants are attacking Juicy Pelousi !!!! This is going to be great to watch this match take its course.

  9. I'm trying to figure out WHO the House of Representatives ACTUALLY Represents. Is it Americans???? Because from where I'm sitting, it looks like someone's political agenda. 🌎

  10. Political theater is right. Ranting and complaining is not what voters want. Why don't they work to solve problems? If they want to rant and complain, get a job on the talk shows.

  11. From the The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)  Website“Ethnic slurs and other verbal or physical conduct because of nationality are illegal if they are severe or pervasive and create an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment, interfere with work performance, or negatively affect job opportunities,” 

    “Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person’s foreign accent or comments like, ‘Go back to where you came from,’ whether made by supervisors or co-workers,”

  12. I've noticed how fast the democrats can get a vote completed when it's about our President Trump. Or illegal immigrants. But when it comes to voting to help American citizens… they are no where to be found!

  13. Congress may hold you, Barr and the President in contempt but we Americans hold Congress in contempt.

  14. Can't believe he is over 80 years old he is still on his position and server the US and the Americans ,great respect for this guy

  15. Hey Ross, u are soooooo old. Go back to sleep.

    Fascist Republicans are trying to divide America by supporting Trumps racist rant. Shameful!

  16. Wilbur is a stooge of Trump, for once, The HOR did the job they were sent to do. To paraphrase Edmund Burke, "All that is necessary for evil to triumph in the world is for good people to do nothing ".😐

  17. I will give Trump credit for unifying the House & the Democratic Party, (at least for "one, brief, shining moment ").😐

  18. What the people who echo Trump's absurd & unfounded "America… Love it or leave it " comment fail to realize that if it wasn't for those who didn't have the guts to redress their grievances in the land of which they inhabited, which was America, we would still be a Colony. These Right Wing Fascists sing hosannas about the Constitution, but fail to realize that they also have a constitution to peacefully redress their grievances. 😠

  19. "Somewhere I read of the Freedom of Speech, Somewhere I read of the Freedom of Assembly, Somewhere I read of the Freedom of the Press, somewhere where I read of the Freedom of Assembly, somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right "-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ✌

  20. Trump, like a true Fascist leader, utilizes the existential fears of those who feel left out, who look for a reason for their maladies. Trump is not normal, he is the most psychotic Chief Executive to occupy the Oval Office in decades (if ever ). I think that those who continue to support this man are misguided & have been pacified with the bread & circus. I don't know if they're familiar with the song "This Land is Your Land".😐

  21. ..time to Senate Judiciary Committee to oversee …if House of Representatives didn't break the rules of any law ….procedures.
    to amendment President D.Trump if they break …Senate Committee must review …and all who break the rules must be punished…especially those 4 who did the mess..

  22. IMPEACH ALL DEMOCRATS, THEY ARE A WASTE OF TIME, MONEY, STUPIDITY AND THEY DO NOT DO THEIR JOBS. DO NOT PAY THEM.

  23. "We the people"….have the power to condemn Democrats……MSM and Antifa to stop this mess..time to go to work and do something for us American people…we don't want to hear…impeach..impeach..the true is …You will never win the case in Senate (waste of time)..period

  24. The Peoples House the dems in charge should start representing all the people american people have no voice anymore this is wrong now its only about politics votes and power

  25. Wilbur Ross is a traitor just like Trump. The GOP are Putin's bitches, plain and simple. Collecting their rubles and being subservient clowns to Russian oligarchs. They have no loyalty to this country.

  26. Trump could find the cures for cancer and dementia and the left would still hate him. Their attitude is pathological.

  27. The Democrats attacking USA prosperity by attacking POTUS Administration.
    It's a attack on Economy, Jobs creation, Tax savings, GDP of USA and from this attack by Democrats it's evident of Democrats radical ideologies filled with Socialism.

  28. Omar can get away with downplaying 911 and anti Semitic remarks, but Trump can’t say, if you think US is bad, go somewhere else? Millions already have said and think this.

  29. When the goal, mission and their contentment it to DEMEAN GOVERNMENT DROP CIVICS IN GENERAL CON-SPIRE TO PRODUCE AN UNAWARE AND COMPLAINT CITIZENRY…. we know them as trolls and mobs, and PROTESTERS in the STREETS.the MSM ARE THE PURVEYORS OF HATE THRU DECEIT (see NANCEYS SMEAR AND WRAP CAMPAIGN) that FEEDS THEIR trolls, mobs,
    AND again the PROTESTERS IN THE STREETS… this guy who wrote this to John PODESTA…mar.13 2016…said as I've MENTIONED WE ALL HAVE BEEN QUITE CONTENT TO DEMEAN GOVERNMENT DROP CIVICS IN….G E N E R A L ….. CON SPIRE TO PRODUCE AN UNAWARE AND COMPLAINT CITIZENRY…t days later the PROTESTS against Trump WENT WAY UP….AND the next month 65 Tom MSM COMMENTATORS WERE INVITED to John PODESTA'S HOUSE and were told that they would be there only for
    One hour……. paycheck anyone?

  30. The dems can unite in voting against Trumps tweet of truth, but they can't vote against antisemitism speech by members of their own party or do the people's business like they have been elected to do. What a bunch of inept hypocrites.

  31. Fox News is absolutely useless. The question remains, did Wilbur Ross screw up? Or, is this all part of President Trump's
    strategy to expose the Democrats in some plot to undermine the Constitution? Under the 14th Amendment, the President
    has a clear mandate to identify who is and is not a US citizen in the US Census. Wilbur Ross has an iron clad path to getting
    the citizenship question on the census questionnaire. Why didn't he use it? Does Fox ask? What bunch of crap!

  32. Hopefully the people are really seeing what’s going on:). They are trying anything to get President Trump out of office! And I pray the American people see what the Democratic Party is all about. They are accusing our President of things they are guilty of because they are scared what the President is doing, trying to drain the swamp!

  33. My My the HIPPO-Crits are something else. Eric Holder was not only charged in contempt and got away with it. He also was responsible for and got away with GIVING guns to drug smugglers. He was never help responsible. Nor was Obama and Hilary for selling uranium to Russia. A different set of rules for the rich and famous in this country.

  34. ~~~🇺🇸WHO PAYS FOR AMERICA 🇺🇸~~~
    Dem's💩Socialists racebait 4 White💰tax's.
    White's contribute annual tax surpluses of over $553.52 billion or $2,795+ per capita.
    ~Asian's scam🇺🇸 to support🇨🇳dictators.~
    ~Black's race💩bait 11k deficits per ea.~
    ~Brown's race💩bait 8k+ deficits ea.~

  35. They, just like the racist in the Oval, are traitors and have broken the law. They do not get to ignore a subpoena, anymore than any other person in this country. That is a valid, Congressional subpoena and they are required to appear. I'm not sure how this law breaking bunch of dipshits haven't already been impeached, but rest assured retribution is coming.

  36. I f you are subpoena to give testimony you cannot ignore it, once you are there you can invoke your. Fifth amendment rights. Ignoring that subpoena you can be arrested for contempt. If you do ignore it than you are contemptible! Anything else is an effort to cover up.

  37. Ross should be rotting in a prison cell. He has controlling interest in a bank in Crete that is notorious for money laundering for the Russian mob & sketchy oligarchs. He should’ve never been confirmed, but the GOP sycophants didn’t dare upset the Tyrannical Toddler

  38. I cannot believe American taxpayers are paying these clowns to do nothing ,but harass the GOP to get to the President. They should not be paid a dime until they start working for the American people.Only in This country could they get away with this nonsense.

  39. The Democrat party has been co-opted by communist and Islam controlled United Nations. They want world govt. with no borders. Actions like this are a communist tactic intended to destabilize the govt. They are subversives. They have wasted 2 + years on frivolous investigations based on false premises, and have defied the will of the people by ignoring needed immigration legislation, funding the wall, etc.

  40. Pelosi and the piggy bank khangrassmints panic, panic,,,,,with the Notsee Truth Free-land scallywag
