'Scorched Earth' Resistance: Chaffetz, McDaniel and Hannity Warn of Consequences If Dems Take House
Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel joined Sean Hannity on Tuesday to discuss November's midterm elections and what could happen if Democrats win the House.
Chaffetz, a Fox News contributor, said that if Democrats take back the House, they will enact "scorched Earth" policies that back up the "Resistance" movement.
Chaffetz said that several radical Democrats are poised to become chairmen of their respective committees, including Jerrold Nadler of New York on the Judiciary Committee, Maxine Waters of California on the Financial Services Committee and Adam Schiff of California on the Select Committee on Intelligence.
Chaffetz said Schiff's first action as chairman would likely be to "dismiss" the investigations into alleged government wrongdoing in the Trump-Russia probe and Mueller case.
McDaniel said that many Democrats have predicted a "blue wave" in the midterm elections, and while she thinks the GOP is in a good position, voter turnout will be critical.
"We need all of our voters to get out. This is not a done deal. The Democrats are energized. And the only way we keep the House is if we get out and get our voters out," McDaniel said.
She said if Democrats take the House, it means the policies of presumptive new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: higher taxes, abolishing ICE, open borders and miring the country in investigation after investigation of the Trump administration.
Chaffetz called out Democrats for refusing to denounce violence from the more radical left and supporting the Trump resistance.
"They want this scorched Earth," he said. "They're going to deliver what they're promising."
