Glenn: The things that are going on in our country are impeachable offenses

The establishment-backed Thom Tillis emerged victorious in yesterday’s Republican primary in North Carolina. Glenn had favored the FreedomWorks and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) endorsed Greg Brannon in the race. Tillis will now face incumbent Senator Kay Hagen (D-NC) in the November’s general election. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the establishment GOP’s victory in the state and reflected on the state of the Republican Party as it relates to congressional action and the future.

“So last night wouldn't be exactly what I would call a banner night for the TEA Party,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “[Matt] Bevin [in Kentucky] is next. Now they're going to target Bevin… You put money into the GOP. And what are they doing? ‘Mitch McConnell is the guy.’ Oh my gosh, I have never felt more betrayed in my life.”

Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) appointed Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to head a select committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

“With four of our countrymen killed at the hands of terrorists, the American people want answers, accountability, and justice,” Boehner said. “Trey Gowdy is as dogged, focused and serious-minded as they come. His background as a federal prosecutor and his zeal for the truth make him the ideal person to lead this panel. I know he shares my commitment to get to the bottom of this tragedy and will not tolerate any stonewalling from the Obama Administration.”

Gowdy was first elected to Congress in 2010, and he has made a name for himself for not shying away from asking tough questions and getting to the bottom of the issues. For those who would truly like to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi that fateful night, Gowdy is a great pick. But Glenn believes that his selection could turn out to be a setup.

“I'm telling you, Trey Gowdy is in trouble. And here's why I say this. Trey Gowdy was selected to run the Benghazi hearings for what reason? Why would John Boehner pick Trey Gowdy,” Glenn asked. “May I give you a hypothesis? I think John Boehner is doing it because it's a win-win situation for John Boehner.”

The way Glenn sees it, these investigations will surely reveal crimes and cover ups that should come with severe punishment.

“The things that are going on in you're country are impeachable offenses,” Glenn said. “This is not Monica Lewinsky… This is dangerous, impeachable stuff that we're talking about… But nobody wants to do that… The American people don't have the stomach for it… The people in Washington don't have the stomach for it.”

So what will happen?

“Trey Gowdy is going to be the guy who's leading this investigation, and he is going to go out like a pit bull, and he's going to dig stuff up. And what did the White House already say? ‘This is an illegitimate investigation.’ ‘We're totally fine with talking to somebody who's reasonable, but he's not even reasonable.’ Well, hang on just a second. Isn't that what John McCain said about Ted Cruz [during the government shutdown],” Glenn asked. “The Republicans put Trey Gowdy in charge because… once this investigation starts to really dig things up, and the machinery turns on, and it needs somebody to grind, it won't grind the GOP. It will grind the TEA Party. You mark my words: That's what's coming. That's why [Boehner] did it.”

The GOP has proven it is not going to stand up for the TEA Party or the more conservative elements of the Republican Party. Glenn believes they have successfully painted the TEA Party into a corner, but this is not the time to compromise on principles.

"The GOP is not even standing for us. We're alone… I've got to change my approach. We have to change our language. We have to go in a different direction because they've painted us in this corner, and they are very effective. We cannot compromise our principles. We cannot compromise what we believe in. But we can't play the game that they have been playing,” Glenn concluded. “It only gets worse from here. I ask you to reflect. Think back in the last 18 months how many things have changed. How bad are things today compared to where they were 18 months ago… Where do you think we are in 18 months from now – especially if the GOP has the reins off them? Holy cow. Change your thinking. Change the world.”

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Harvard Law professor and lawyer on President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team Alan Dershowitz explains the history of impeachment and its process, why the framers did not include abuse of power as criteria for a Constitutional impeachment, why the Democrats are framing their case the way they are, and what to look for in the upcoming Senate trial.

Dershowitz argued that "abuse of power" -- one of two articles of impeachment against Trump approved by House Democrats last month -- is not an impeachable act.

"There are two articles of impeachment. The second is 'obstruction of Congress.' That's just a false accusation," said Dershowitz. "But they also charge him, in the Ukraine matter, with abuse of power. But abuse of power was discussed by the framers (of the U.S. Constitution) ... the framers refused to include abuse of power because it was too broad, too open-ended.

"In the words of James Madison, the father of our Constitution, it would lead presidents to serve at the will of Congress. And that's exactly what the framers didn't want, which is why they were very specific and said a president can be impeached only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," he added.

"What's alleged against President Trump is not criminal," added Dershowitz. "If they had criminal issues to allege, you can be sure they would have done it. If they could establish bribery or treason, they would have done it already. But they didn't do it. They instead used this concept of abuse of power, which is so broad and general ... any president could be charged with it."

On Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
