Omnipresent Reid Chides Dems on Impeachment, Obama on Russia

Retired former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) spoke to NBC News in an interview published Wednesday, and it appears he shows no signs of letting up on politics.

Omnipresent Reid Chides Dems on Impeachment, Obama on Russia

Democrats pushing impeachment of President Trump, like billionaire Tom Steyer, should “stop it.” President Obama “should have done a lot more” on Russia. Republicans are the “limpest waffle you’ve ever seen.”

Ex-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) – one of the most divisive political figures in modern American history – is sticking around, and he’s not letting up on his political opinions.

Reid granted NBC News an exclusive interview and, as noted above, touched on the ‘impeach Trump’ campaign, Russian interference in 2016, and Republicans in charge of Congress today.

One passage from NBC News sticks out, though:

In a 35-minute interview, Reid also said he believes the Senate is “irreparably damaged” and will eventually become like the traditionally less deliberative, less bipartisan House of Representatives. Reid, who served 30 years in the Senate, called Republican members of Congress the “limpest waffle you’ve ever seen” who’ve done “everything they can” to hurt the Judiciary and legislative branches of the U.S. government.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Reid ignored his own role in the ‘irreparable damage’ done to the U.S. Senate. Reid’s “nuclear option,” triggered during the Obama administration for lower-court nominees and White House appointments, changed the tone and tenor of the U.S. Senate. It also paved the way for a Republican-led Senate to trigger the “nuclear option” for Supreme Court nominees.

More importantly, though, the interview suggests that Reid will still insert himself into Democratic politics, in 2018 and possibly beyond. Reid hand-picked freshman Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) to be his next U.S. senator from Nevada, and still considers himself a leader of the party.
