GOP Busted For Spending Money To ‘Jam’ Dem Phone Lines To Slow Down Impeachment Inquiry
Republicans are doing everything in their power to stop Democrats from continuing their investigation as part of the impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump.
The New York Times revealed on Monday that Republicans have been spending money on “thousands” of phone calls to Democratic lawmakers to jam their phone lines.
“The Republican National Committee paid to generate thousands of calls to the congressional offices of nearly three dozen House Democrats in recent weeks, an effort that was aimed at both shaping opinion around the impeachment inquiry and tying up the phone lines of the elected officials,” The Times reported Monday, citing “two people briefed on the effort.”
“The calls were part of a broader effort by Republicans to influence public opinion around the investigation into President Trump. The Trump campaign and the Republican committee have taken the lead on political messaging defending Mr. Trump at a moment of political vulnerability, using television and digital ads, as well as the phone calls,” the newspaper noted. “The fact that the calls to congressional offices, estimated to number 11,000, were partly intended to jam the phone lines of House Democrats — potentially thwarting access to government offices — was described at a recent dinner of more than a dozen Republican aides, advisers and elected officials, known as the ‘Off the Record’ dinner.”
