On Saturday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Representative Jodey Arrington (R-TX) argued that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will use the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) as a bargaining chip “to get moderate Democrats to support impeachment.”
Arrington said, “Nancy Pelosi’s been playing politics, Ed, with this. This has been on her desk for a year. She doesn’t want the president to get credit, A. And B., she’s going to use this as a chip to get moderate Democrats to support impeachment.”
Arrington continued that even though he thinks such tactics are “a terrible calculation,” whether the deal passes is ultimately what matters.
