But when CNN moderator turned to Gabbard as “the person on stage who served” in Iraq, Gabbard declared: “We were all lied to.” “This is the betrayal . . . betrayal to the American people,” she said. “To me, to my fellow service members, we were lied to, told [Saddam] Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and working with al-Qaida and posed a threat to the American people.” “The problem is that this current president is continuing to betray us,” she charged. “Over years now, not only have we not gone after al-Qaida, who is stronger today than 9/11, our president is supporting al-Qaida.” “I did make a bad judgment trusting the President [George W. Bush] saying he was only doing this to get inspectors in and get the UN to agree,” he said. Vice President Joe Biden was challenged about his vote to go to war in Iraq while he served in the Senate. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, said Wednesday night the nation and military were “lied to” about the need to go to war with Iraq.
“I agree with my fellow members of the Washington delegation that, as we have learned about the gravity of the potential threats to our democracy identified in special counsel Mueller’s report, it has become clear that the House should begin proceedings to determine whether the president’s action necessitate impeachment,” Murray said in a statement shared on her website. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., on Sunday supported an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump, a decision fueled by testimony provided by special counsel Robert Mueller last week. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday said the House would decide whether to begin proceedings, “when we have a best strongest possible case” and that such a decision “will be made in a timely fashion.” Murray, the No. 3 Senate Democrat, joins a growing list of Democrats pushing for impeachment, including all seven of Washington’s Democratic House members. Mueller in his testimony before the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees noted the 2000 Justice Department determination that “a sitting president is constitutionally immune from indictment and criminal prosecution.” He also said his team did not reach a determination whether Trump committed a crime.
“Somebody goes out and shoots somebody they are called a murderer. We all agree with that, put them away,” Sanders said at the fundraiser. “Put them away. But what happens if somebody runs a pharmaceutical industry and artificially jacks up the price…” In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” host Jake Tapper noted that in Detroit on Saturday, Sanders made that case. “In the case of insulin, people are dying, the cost has soared in recent years and you have three companies that control over 90% of the insulin market.” “Murderers,” the crowd answered back. Democratic presidential primary candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on Sunday repeated his comparison of the pharmaceutical executives who jack up the prices of life-saving drugs to murderers. “This is a philosophical issue that we have to deal with,” Sanders said Sunday. “If I have a product that cost me a few dollars to make, and I jack up that price, and you can’t afford it, and you die, what do you call them?” he added. The Democratic socialist has pushed for Medicare for all.
