first_imgNEW YORK, CMC – Caribbean American Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke has welcomed the move made by members of the Democratic Party to make a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.“With Donald Trump in office, our democracy remains at stake. It is unconstitutional and completely unacceptable for this president to contact foreign governments in an attempt to tarnish presidential candidates to interfere with and attempt to puppeteer our elections,” Clarke, the daughter of Jamaican immigrants, told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC).“I’ve been a vocal proponent of impeaching Donald Trump since 2017, and this latest law-breaking incident only validates my beliefs that we must move forward in impeaching Donald J. Trump from the highest office in our country.”“The American people deserve transparency in our government,” Clarke continued. “The American people deserve a president who truly works for the people. The American people deserve a president who abides by our Constitution. Simply put, Americans deserve much more than Donald Trump.”On Tuesday, US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, announced that the Democratic-controlled House would initiate a formal impeachment inquiry against Trump, charging him with betraying his oath of office and the nation’s security by seeking to enlist a foreign power to tarnish a rival for his own political gain.As America observed the anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution on September 17, Pelosi said, “sadly, on that day, the Intelligence Community Inspector General formally notified the Congress that the administration was forbidding him from turning over a whistleblower complaint on Constitution Day.Pelosi said the actions taken to date by Trump have “seriously violated the Constitution, especially when the president says Article II says I can do whatever I want.”For the past several months, she said Democrats in the House of Representatives have been investigating in their committees and litigating in the courts, “so the House can gather all of the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full Article I powers, including a constitutional power of the utmost gravity, approval of Articles of Impeachment.”Pelosi’s announcement raised the prospect that Trump could become the fourth president in US history to face impeachment.Presidents Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were both impeached but later acquitted by the US Senate.President Richard M. Nixon resigned in the face of a looming House of Representatives’ impeachment vote.last_img read more

Brown, former Permanent Representative of Liberia to the United NationsInformation Minister Lewis Brown has asserted that the Government of Liberia is committed to supporting and working in open partnership with all media practitioners across the country.He stressed that, “We are fully committed to the media and intend to ensure everyone wins in a more professional and ethical manner with no plans to sanction any media house. We will continue to partner to ensure that our people are informed about the happenings in Liberia,” he said. Minister Brown made those remarks last Friday at the Information Ministry’s daily Ebola briefing, during which he clarified among other issues, media registration with the Ministry. According to him, the intent of registering and processing all advertisement, arrangement of special media coverage, press conferences through MICAT is to proactively address the issue of “ethical transgression on the part of some media practitioners and government entities”. At the same time, Minister Brown reiterated calls to media houses to comply with the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed last October between the Press Union of Liberia and the Information Ministry by renewing their licenses on or before January 30 ensuing. He indicated that unless print or broadcast licenses are renewed by the Information Ministry, these media houses stand the risk of either losing their frequencies or publications, adding that they will not get tax clearances from the Finance Ministry or business registration renewals from the Commerce Ministry if they refused to register. According to the MOU, which has received mixed reactions from Liberian journalists, the PUL is to register journalists, while the ministry registers media houses.Meanwhile, the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) is urging all journalists to register as agreed upon in the MOU last year.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
