Ted Yoho Impeachment
Yoho wanted to hold the president accountable for misusing federal agencies for partisan political purposes, issuing unconstitutional executive orders and waging war without congressional approval.
At least he did when the president’s name was Barack Obama. Yoho, R-Gainesville, has been a lot more forgiving of presidential transgressions since Donald Trump was elected, in some cases even excusing behavior he previously condemned.
When Obama was president, Yoho introduced a House bill that defined 11 specific impeachable offenses. Reader Larry Lowenthal recently reminded me of the measure and directed me to the list of offenses, which looks a lot like some of Trump’s actions.
Yoho objected to Obama initiating military action in Libya and Yemen without express congressional approval, but took a different tone about Trump’s missile strike on Syria. “Something had to be done,” he told CNN.
He regularly criticized Obama’s executive orders as unconstitutional, but has praised Trump’s use of such orders. Courts have found constitutional violations in Trump’s orders banning transgender military members, targeting so-called sanctuary cities and prohibiting travel from Muslim-majority countries.
People imagine how Yoho would erupte one of the Obama children being caught accepting campaign information from a Russian operative. When that happened with Donald Trump Jr., Yoho told CNN, “I probably would have done the same thing.”
While Yoho absurdly claimed his constituents were “clamoring” for Obama’s impeachment, he doesn’t seem interested in hearing what they have to say about the Trump campaign’s involvement with the Russians.
Instead, he took to the House floor in November to call for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to resign and in December to call for Hillary Clinton to be investigated.
Back in 2015, Yoho claimed his impeachment measure wasn’t “directed at any one president and doesn’t favor one party or the other.” He said it was simply “a first step in reining in an overreaching executive and restoring the balance of power in our government — the way our Founders intended.”
The Founders must be flipping in their graves as congressional Republicans give Trump a pass while continuing to obsess over Clinton.
We all have biases that inform our opinions, but Yoho has pledged to uphold the Constitution no matter who is in power.
I’m not arguing Trump should be impeached — yet. Mueller’s investigation should be able to run its course to determine if any impeachable offenses were committed, without interference from Congress.
Ted Yoho breaked out his list of impeachable offenses and start checking them against the Trump administration’s actions. Or maybe he needs to reread the Constitution to get a refresher on the responsibility of Congress to provide a check on the president.

Ted Yoho District
Yoho represent the 3rd District of Florida since 2013 where he is a member of Republican party.
Ted Yoho Trump
President Donald Trump threw his support behind U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., on Thursday, endorsing the North Florida Republican for a fourth term in the U.S. House.
Trump took to Twitter to endorse Yoho who faces a primary challenge later this month from Judson Sapp, a businessman who served as an aide to U.S. Sen. Connie Mack, R-Fla., and longtime GOP state legislator John Thrasher.
“Congressman Ted Yoho of Florida is doing a fantastic job and has my complete and total endorsement!” Trump posted on Twitter. “Tough on crime and borders, Ted was really helpful on tax cuts. Vote all the way for Ted in the upcoming primary – he will never let you down!”
Yoho was happy to have the president’s backing in the primary which will be held on August 28.
“Thank you Mr. President Donald J. Trump for your incredible endorsement,” Yoho posted on Facebook. “I look forward to continuing our important work together and Keeping America Great!”
While Trump point to it, Yoho, who served as the vice chairman of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee and currently leads the U.S. House Asia and Pacific Subcommittee, has gone to bat for the administration on international issues, including the White House’s efforts in North Korea.
Yoho also successfully got his “Better Utilization of Investments Leading to Development Act (BUILD Act),” which streamlines a host of federal programs into a single development finance corporation, through the House. The Trump administration made a similar proposal in its FY 2019 budget request.
Trump has also backed U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., for a second term in the House, supported Gov. Rick Scott’s challenge to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., and has endorsed U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., to be Florida’s next governor.
First elected to Congress in 2012, when he upset longtime U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., in the primary, Yoho has promised to serve four terms in Congress.
Ted Yoho Win
Ted Yoho was proj the winner at 7:13p.m by the Association press . At his fourth term against Democratic candidate Yvonne Hayes Hinson, a retired former Gainesville city commission member.
His seat was considered safe for Republicans during a midterm election when Democrats nationwide expressed cautious optimism they might take control in the House.
The early call surprised Yoho, whose campaign did not immediately accept news of his victory, and Hinson, who had not yet even left home to attend a Democratic watch party in downtown Gainesville when a WUFT reporter contacted her by phone to say she had already lost the race.
Yoho’s campaign manager, Kat Cammack, said she had wanted to see vote tallies in each of the counties that comprise the congressional district.
“If indeed he wins, he ran a good race,” Hinson said in an interview. “He treated me with integrity and great respect.” Hinson said she was not planning to call Yoho to concede: “Absolutely not. Concede? Never.”
Yoho, who was first elected in 2012, defeated the Republican incumbent in that year’s primary by only 829 votes or 1.1 percent. He said then that he would spend no more than eight years in Washington, meaning he will not run again in 2020 unless he changed his mind.
Yoho, a large-animal veterinarian, outraised his opponent $818,589 to $53,815 through the middle of October, according to federal campaign finance records.
Hinson’s own party considered the race effectively unwinnable: Hinson gave $6,311 to her own campaign, nearly twice as much as she received in support from national Democrats, records show.

Ted Yoho Interview
All right, stand by, because we’re going to be getting back to you soon. Dana is with us.
I want to get some more on all of this.
Republican Congressman Ted Yoho of Florida is joining us. He’s a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee.
Congressman, thanks for joining us.
Ted Yoho: All right, thank you.
So, is it appropriate, Congressman, for the president’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, to be treating this investigation as a political football by dragging out the interview negotiations with Robert Mueller and suggesting, you know what, if there’s no interview, that might be good in generating support among the president’s base going into the midterm elections?
Ted Yoho: I think Rudy Giuliani doing what he thinks is best for the president to move forward.
This investigation really needs to go away. It was set up on Russian collusion and Russian meddling in our election. We know they meddled. There is no evidence of collusion. And the FISA warrants were issued on those pretenses.
Ted Yoho: So, it needs to go away.
We don’t know what Mueller has. He’s been very, very silent. His team has been very silent.
We don’t know if he has evidence of collusion or conspiracy or cooperation or any of those areas. We know the investigation is continuing.
But you know how this investigation can be wrapped up right away? If the president agrees to sit down with the special counsel and his team and answer questions. Why not simply do that
Ted Yoho: I don’t see a need for that.
And I would defer to Rudy Giuliani again, but this investigation should go away. Again, it was set up on a false pretense. We have read the memos. There is no collusion. And they’re going to drag this out. And this thing just needs to go away, so that when get on with the nation’s business. We talk about our debt, we talk about these other threats.
This is something that is a distraction. Think how much more we could get done in Congress as a nation if we got rid of this — it’s a witch-hunt.
I just want to just correct you.
You keep saying it’s a false pretense. Do you agree the Russians did meddle in the U.S. presidential elections in 2016?
Ted Yoho: There’s no doubt about that.
As all of the members of the U.S. intelligence community agree, including the president’s own director of national intelligence and CIA director and everyone else?
Ted Yoho: Sure.
How do you know they haven’t found it, if we don’t know the results of Mueller’s investigation?
Ted Yoho: Well, he should have come out with it by now, a year-and-a-half into this.
He’s waiting to speak to the president, though.
Ted Yoho: I think they’re dragging this out into the election.
He’s waiting to speak to the president.
Ted Yoho: The president hasn’t been charged with anything, and he hasn’t shown any wrongdoing.
So I don’t know if I would sit down with Robert Mueller, if it was me. I don’t believe I would.
Because they usually wait for the principal, in this particular case the president of the United States, to be the final element in an investigation.
Ted Yoho: But that’s only to give the prosecutor — that gives the prosecutor a leg up to sit down with him.
And if I were President Trump, I don’t believe I would. I would listen to Rudy Giuliani.
The whole point, though, is — and it’s a simple, simple notion that all of us grew up with, and our parents always told us, if you have nothing to hide, go ahead and speak. Speak the truth, and you won’t be in trouble.
What is the president and his lawyers afraid of in sitting down and answering questions, if the president didn’t do anything wrong?
Ted Yoho: I agree.
I think we’d like to hear what was said on the plane with Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch. And let’s hear what that brings out. Again, they have had a year-and-a-half to find something. Obviously, they don’t have anything. They’re dragging this out.
And I just — I disagree with that.
All that stuff with Bill Clinton, Loretta Lynch and all that other stuff with Hillary Clinton has been thoroughly investigated. You saw the inspector general’s report in the Department of Justice. They came out with a lengthy, what, 600-page report. They reviewed it in detail.
This is a separate matter right now.
But let’s get into another issue, Congressman, because you’re always kind to join us here in THE SITUATION ROOM.
Ted Yoho: Appreciate it.
The recently uncovered recording of your colleague, the House Intelligence Committee chairman, Devin Nunes, telling Republican donors that Republicans need to keep the majority in the House of Representatives, and then he suggested in order to protect President Trump from the special counsel’s investigation.
Do you think it’s your job to protect the president of the United States from this kind of investigation?
Ted Yoho: Before I answer that, I listened to that state — that recording seven times, and I never heard the word protect.
What I heard Devin Nunes says at the end of that is, if we don’t keep the majority, all this goes away. The tax cuts go away. The reforms we made with regulations, they go away. So you can read that protect in there.
I did not hear the word protect. So I don’t know if that’s conjecture. If it’s in there, I didn’t hear that portion of it. And I have listened to your show for the last hour listening for that, and I played it back over and over again.
So if that word is in there, I would like to hear it.
But if that’s his goal, to protect the president, as you know, the legislative branch of the U.S. government is a co-equal branch with the executive branch of the U.S. government.
Ted Yoho: Right.
Your mission is to do what’s necessary to protect the American people, not necessarily the president of the United States.
Ted Yoho: Absolutely.
So, if he’s making that suggestion, you got to have a Republican majority in order to make sure the president doesn’t have to deal with Robert Mueller, that’s not necessarily appropriate, is it?
Ted Yoho: Well, again, I didn’t hear the word protect. So you’re putting that word in there. I heard that all this goes away.
And, again, I think Devin Nunes was talking about all the gains we have had, the historic low unemployment, the minimum wage going up across the country, over four million people getting tax — or bonuses, and the millions of people that have gotten increased pay because of the tax cut that we passed.
And so that’s what I think Devin Nunes was talking about when I heard that tape. He’s talking about all that goes away. And I hear people saying, well, he meant protect.
You’re right, Congressman. The word protect specifically is not included in this statement, but, clearly, it’s implied.
Ted Yoho: All right, so, let’s leave that out of this discussion.
I could play that clip for you one more time.
Ted Yoho: Well, we want to keep a Republican majority because we like the crumbs that are coming in, and the American people do too.
They sent us up there to do what we have done. And we want to make sure the agenda of the Republican Party and this president stays intact with the gains we have made.
And I agree with Devin Nunes. If we lose that majority, all those gains go away. And you will have Nancy Pelosi on the House floor rallying for eight hours to protect the people that are here illegally. And they will have open borders and they will get rid of the tax cuts and God knows what else they will do.
So I stand with Devin Nunes on that comment. And I did not hear the word protect. And I hope that the media gets that right and puts that word that the word protect was not in that statement that you guys keep saying the word protect is in there.
So I think that’s a little false advertising. No offense.
And you know what? We can leave it on that, and let the viewers and the folks, the American public, make up their mind to see what he was driving at.
Let me get your thoughts — you’re a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee — on these latest sanctions against Russia in retaliation for the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy on British soil, including his daughter as well.
Ted Yoho: Yes, sir.
These sanctions are required by U.S. law, but the administration didn’t implement them until your colleague Congressman Ed Royce, the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, wrote to the White House in late July, saying, you know what, you guys got to do this because it’s the law of the land going back to 1991.
You’re a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee. Do you want the administration to be more proactive about combating Russian misbehavior?
Ted Yoho: Yes, absolutely.
And Chairman Royce, I have the utmost respect for him. And if Ed is leading this, I’m 100 percent behind it.
These are tools that we have come up over decades, over hundreds of years of arrows in a quiver that an administration can use. And if we don’t use the tools, whether it’s Russia, China, North Korea, or Iran, we’re weakening our hand.
So I agree with Chairman Royce, and I’m glad to see we’re moving down this. When you have a nefarious actor like Russia that we know is meddling in our elections, and there’s evidence that they’re doing it again, we need to act on that. And that’s why we put in our bill the Cyber Security Response and Deterrence Act, that’ll go after these and gives the legislative branch more tools to give an executive branch to hold bad actors accountable.
And it’s time we start using them.
You got a pretty strong endorsement today on Twitter from the president of the United States. I’m sure you’re pretty happy about that. I see that broad smile coming from your face.
Ted Yoho: Yes, I did.
Congressman Ted Yoho, always good to have you here in THE SITUATION ROOM. Thanks very much for joining us.
Ted Yoho: Wolf, I appreciate it. Thank you for the opportunity. Take care.
All right, thank you.
