Congressional Integrity Project February 12 – February 16, 2024 Summary

Feb 16, 2024

This week, the Congressional Integrity Project continued to drive the narratives against the baseless, fact-free impeachment attempts of President Biden and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. 

This week, the Congressional Integrity Project launched a new billboard in Atlanta, Georgia calling out Donald Trump and his allies in Congress for trying to interfere in criminal investigations in order to distract from Donald Trump’s criminal prosecutions. In Georgia, Donald Trump and his 19 co-defendants are charged for their efforts to overturn the 2020 election, which resulted in the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol and in Trump’s case his culpability was caught on tape for everyone to hear.

Repeatedly hyping up a completely non-credible witness who was federally indicted this week for lying about President Biden

CIP sent out 18 rapid response products, including statements, fact sheets, and roundups.

Instead of focusing on the real issues that matter to Americans like the economy and health care costs, MAGA House Republicans voted to impeach Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, despite any evidence of high crimes or misdemeanors.

A federal court unsealed a two-count indictment of Alexander Smirnov, the so-called FBI whistleblower who accused President Biden and his son Hunter of corruption and bribery, for lying about his accusations about the President and his son

Over the past 24 hours, Donald Trump has ramped up his calls for Congress to impeach President Biden, despite no evidence of wrongdoing whatsoever by the current president.

Republican Special Counsel Robert Hur released a report recommending no charges and no wrongdoing in President Biden’s document case.

The Congressional Integrity Project launched a new billboard in Atlanta, Georgia calling out Donald Trump and his allies in Congress for trying to interfere in the criminal investigations into Trump’s multi-pronged plan to overturn the 2020 election.

The MAGA House GOP will talk to Hunter Biden’s ex-associate Tony Bobulinski to testify as part of their baseless, evidence-free impeachment probe of President Biden. Calling on Bobulinski to testify is a new low for Republicans who are desperate to revive their failing inquiry.

After months of demands from extremists like Majorie Taylor Greene, the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic will hold a hearing on vaccine safety where some of the leading anti-vaccine conspiracy theorists in the Republican caucus will have free rein to promote their dangerous anti-science ideas.  

Voters roundly rejected the Trump-MAGA agenda on Long Island in New York’s 3rd district. Democrats flipped the first of the original Biden 18 seats, held by House Republicans in districts that voted for President Biden in 2020.

MAGA House Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are holding yet another stunt hearing about the southern border.

MAGA House Republicans have wasted their whole time as the majority pursuing baseless impeachment investigations demanded by Donald Trump instead of conducting actual work that would improve the lives of Americans

Colorado Springs Gazette: Democratic group launches campaign accusing Republicans of interfering with Trump criminal cases. “The billboard, which will be placed alongside Interstate 85 in Atlanta as Fulton County officials consider whether to disqualify Willis from the case, is part of a larger campaign the Congressional Integrity Project will be launching to tie House Republicans to Trump’s federal investigations, the group told the Washington Examiner.” [Colorado Springs Gazette, 2/14/24]

Levittown Now: Congressman Votes For Second Time To Impeach Homeland Security Secretary. “Political group Congressional Integrity Project called out Fitzpatrick for his vote. ‘Make no mistake – poll after poll has shown that the people are tired of partisan games and political stunts and they want solutions to real issues like the cost of living and the border and instead of focusing on those issues House Republicans just told the American people to go to hell. In particular, Republicans like Brian Fitzpatrick from swing districts won by Biden in 2020 have made their beds and they will have to lie in them – right next to Donald Trump,’ said Congressional Integrity Project Executive Director Kyle Herrig.” [Levittown Now, 2/14/24]

Pittsburgh Post Gazette: Western Pa. Republicans vote to impeach Mayorkas after opposing bipartisan border measure. “The 214-213 vote, mostly along party lines, cited charges that outside observers said fell far below the ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ required by the Constitution. The executive director of the Congressional Integrity Project, Kyle Herrig, called it ‘a baseless political stunt.’” [Pittsburgh Post Gazette, 2/15/24]
