MSNBC’s Johnson: ‘Democrats Need to Back off’ on Impeachment Talk in Va.; GOP Being Hypocritical

‘If you’re a smart Democrat, you are not about to let the Republican Party weaponize your own values against you in order to do a power grab in Virginia’

RUSH EXCERPT:

JOHNSON: "I'm going to say -- politically speaking, I'm going to say this, I'm not a Democrat but I'm going to play one on TV right now. What we're not about to have happen if you're a smart Democrat, you are not about to let the Republican Party weaponize your own values against you in order to do a power grab in Virginia. We've got 2020 coming up, there are legislative elections happening in Virginia now. The Republican Party doesn't care about blackface. They don't care about institutional racism. They don't care about rape culture or protecting black they'll use opportunities to do a power grab they couldn't do in Democrats need to back off from any discussions of resignation, any decision discussions of articles of impeachment until there's an actual investigation. Then you make a decision."
