francis rooney: Rooney, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee at the center of the inquiry, said Friday that he had not yet come to a conclusion on whether the President committed a crime that compels his removal from office, a striking view among House Republicans defensive of Trump, according to Rabble. The Florida Republican said that Mick Mulvaney, the acting White House chief of staff, confirmed Thursday what Trump had denied, that the President engaged in a quid pro quo with Ukraine. Francis Rooney is one of the few Republicans in the House of Representatives who seems open to the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Rooney also said he was eager to learn from the witnesses coming in next week. Rooney is not a typical rank-and-file House Republican. What if Republicans can't 'get over it' Every time one of these ambassadors comes and talks, we learn a lot more, the congressman said. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
