Senator Pat Toomey on China, Syria, and Impeachment

The Dom Giordano Program
Tuesday, October 8th
Today, Dom spoke with Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey about a multitude of topics, most prominently China, Syria and the impeachment inquiry. Dom leads off the interview by asking Toomey’s comments via press release about China’s communist party rule. Dom uses this to get Toomey's thoughts about the recent controversy in the NBA after Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey tweeted an image, reading “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong,” which led to the NBA and Rockets ownership condemning the message. Then, Dom talks to Senator Toomey about President Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria. Toomey mentions that this characterizes Trump’s campaign commitment to pull troops from Syria, but the Senator worries that this will be a bad decision, comparing it to Obama’s similar decision in Iraq which led to the emergence of ISIS. Finally, Dom confronts Toomey on the lack of Republican pushback to the congressional impeachment inquiry.
