Relations with Turkey
The Constitution names the President as “Commander in Chief” and gives the President the powers to conduct international diplomacy. As President Trump continues his negotiations with the Turkish government, it is important his efforts and progress are not undermined by partisans in Congress.
Heritage Action scored another victory this week by securing key changes to the House’s bill imposing sanctions on Turkey. These changes give President Trump more power and discretion in the implementation of any sanctions.
Pelosi’s Sham Impeachment Exposed
For weeks, we’ve been shining a light on how big of a sham this impeachment inquiry has been.
It began without a vote. It’s been conducted largely in secret, away from the American people. And the minority party has been denied their right to fully participate.
On Halloween, Speaker Pelosi gave in to public pressure. No longer able to protect vulnerable Democrats from having to go on record, Pelosi held a vote. Now we know where our representatives stand, and that’s a victory.
But the vote is too little, too late. For weeks, the blatant partisanship of Pelosi, Schiff and others has been on full display. Holding a vote doesn’t change that.
After the vote, Executive Director Tim Chapman commented
From the moment President Trump took the oath of office, Democrats have been determined to impeach him. Today’s vote was simply the latest move in this highly partisan proceeding. The entire impeachment process has been purely motivated by politics, with little grounding in evidence, fairness, or due process.

Next week, the House is in recess, but when they come back, they will likely vote on H.R. 3, a government takeover of prescription drug prices.
