Retiring House Democrat says a Trump reelection would be a 'nightmare scenario' for Congress
[The Hill] Retiring Rep. Denny Heck (D-Wash.) said Sunday that President Trump's reelection in 2020 would be a "nightmare scenario" for Congress.
|The poor darling. And there he is, doing nothing to help anyone. |
Heck announced Wednesday that he would retire after completing his current term, noting that part of him feels "discouraged" by some of his colleagues' reactions to the impeachment inquiry.
"If President Trump gets a second term, what do you think the impact's going to be on Congress?" "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd asked Heck on NBC.
"That is a nightmare scenario, in my mind," Heck responded.
"Because of the absence of a commitment to decency or truth on his part that has been amply demonstrated in his three years in public office, because of his refusal to recognize even the most basic precepts of constitutional principle," he added.
Heck added that one point of discouragement has been the growing number of people who "simply don't believe in compromise."
"My soul is weary, Chuck," he said.
”Oh, Chuck, the ennui, it is so tiresome,” he added.
