Kaine: GOP Vows to Investigate Clinton ‘Bad View’ of Role of Legislature, ‘I Thought Legislators Were Supposed to Legislate’

On Thursday’s “Alan Colmes Show” on Fox News Radio, Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) weighed in on Republican vows to investigate his running mate if she is eleced by stating, “I thought legislators were supposed to legislate. I mean investigations are part of it, but the real issue is legislation.”

Kaine said, [relevant remarks begin around 5:00] “When people are throwing the impeachment word around before the election has even taken place. I mean, first it kind of suggests a little bit of defeatism, like, well, we think we’re probably going to lose. Second, it also suggests a really bad view of what the role of a legislator is. Same about this investigation stuff. I thought legislators were supposed to legislate. I mean, investigations are part of it, but the real issue is legislation. So I hope folks — voters will hold them accountable. Yeah, don’t tell us just what you’re going to block, tell us what it is that you want to do.”
