1. I sure hope that Pelosi stops all this

I thought she could veto anyone he wanted on committee. They didnít want an investigation so I really donít care if itís bipartisan or not. Please letís not let them turn this into another circus.

5. The Democrat that ran against him

was a former diplomat who spoke multiple languages, got his BA from University of Texas and his Master's in Public Administration from Harvard.

Troy Nehls got his BA from Liberty University and his Master's in Criminal Justice from University of Houston - Downtown.
