Jimmy Barrett and Shara Fryer take you through the stories that matter on the morning of 10/09/2019, including: According to fivethirtyeight.com, Democrats are strongly in favor of impeachment, Republicans are strongly opposed and independents hover somewhere in between. Measuring public opinion on impeachment comes with some added curveballs. For one thing, pollsters often phrase questions about impeachment differently, which can affect responses. For another, the impeachment process itself is complicated — opening an impeachment inquiry was the beginning of a process that could eventually lead to Trump’s removal from office, but only after a bunch of intermediary steps — and many Americans don’t fully understand it. Media coverage of possible presidential impeachment dominates the news today as few issues in recent memory. Yet, the constitutional framework which controls impeachment, (scattered throughout Articles I, II, and III), is little understood by even normally informed Americans. Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump tells Breitbart the ‘deep state’ is behind the effort to impeach the president. “The attempt at impeachment is best understood as a legislative coup against a democratically elected president, and the radical leftists in Congress are working arm-in-arm with the deep state saboteurs and their allies in the media in order to try to effectuate this illegal coup,” Miller said. Some Democrats in Fort Bend County are accused of being on a “witch-hunt” against the current conservative sheriff to be replaced with a new liberal sheriff. The Fort Bend County Commissioners Court met in closed session yesterday to removing Republican Sheriff Troy Nehls from office under the "Resign to Run" provision--which state legislators approved years ago. This summer, Nehls said he won't seek another term as he's formed an exploratory committee to seek the U.S. House seat in Texas District 22. Nehls tweeted it was a 'witch-hunt' accusing Democrat County Judge KP George has met with other Democrats to choose who he would appoint to replace Nehls. Nehls tweeted Democrat County Judge KP George has met with other Democrats to choose who he would appoint to replace Nehls. After the closed session yesterday, George said the item was only informational and no action was taken.
