The Trump administration and the president’s reelection campaign have accused Democrats in Congress of getting nothing done since launching the impeachment inquiry.
President Donald Trump has labeled them “do-nothing Democrats” on Twitter. The Trump Victory campaign has staged small “Stop the Madness” protests outside U.S. Rep. Xochitl Torres Small’s offices in the 2nd Congressional District, urging her to vote against impeachment and get back to work on other issues.
But members of New Mexico’s all-Democratic delegation say it’s the Senate Republicans and the president who are holding up legislation.
“That has had nothing to do with impeachment,” U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich told the Journal last week. “That’s had to do with (Senate Majority Leader) Mitch McConnell. The House of Representatives has been able to walk and chew gum at the same time. They continue to send us legislation.”
