(TNS) The Garbage Party has earned its moniker from us a thousand times over, but they earned it again Wednesday based on who they have chosen to help craft the House’s rules of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Included in the gaggle of miscreants is Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida (above, right), a former federal judge who himself was impeached and removed from the federal bench in 1998.

For bribery, no less.

Hello, Nancy Pelosi? Are you really that tone-deaf or just that arrogant?

But wait, as they say…there’s more to this Hastings saga.

The Treasury Department also paid out $220,000 in an undisclosed agreement in December 2017 to settle a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment against Hastings, Roll Call reported.


Hastings also appears to be presently under investigation.

In November it was announced that the House Ethics Committee began an investigation into whether his relationship with a female staffer, Patricia Williams, violated House rules forbidding members from having sexual relationships with their subordinates.

That seems like a slam-dunk but hey, Hastings is now helping to craft rules of impeachment…against a president who has done nothing wrong…and certainly not bribery, which is what he’s being charged with.


Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) actually praised Hastings recently for his “work for freedom and democracy in Europe…”

Can’t make this stuff up.
