Republicans In Pennsylvania House Impeach Soros-Funded Philadelphia DA

Republicans in the Pennsylvania state House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to impeach a George Soros-backed district attorney for disregarding his obligations to the public during a “catastrophic” increase in crime in his community. The state Senate will now vote on whether he will be removed from office.

The progressive prosecutor, Larry Krasner, was found by a state House Select Committee last month to have directly contributed to the rise in “violent crime at the expense of public safety” while neglecting “to integrate and effectuate his progressive policies with any success.”

The Pennsylvania House has not impeached a state judge since moving to remove a state supreme court justice in 1994.

The House impeached Krasner just one day after the formal articles of impeachment were approved by the House Judiciary Committee and referred to the full body.

State Rep. Martina White (R) told Fox News on Wednesday that she was voting later in the day to impeach Krasner because he has been caught red-handed “lying to the courts, including a Supreme Court justice that his aides misled.” She said the prosecutor has also misrepresented facts to a state grand jury and violated the civil rights of at least one police officer while disregarding the concerns of victims in criminal sentencing requests.

House Speaker Bryan Cutler (R) said that Krasner has hurt the public by downplaying the prosecution of many crimes, including theft, drug possession, and prostitution. Cutler said that district attorneys “don’t get to ignore laws,” and the state cannot allow “one rogue county to go off the rails and jeopardize the citizens who live there.”

The impeachment was approved in the state House by a vote of 107 to 85.

Krasner responded to his impeachment on Twitter, posting: “History will harshly judge this anti-democratic authoritarian effort to erase Philly’s votes – votes by Black, brown, and broke people in Philadelphia. And voters will have the last word.”

The Pennsylvania state constitution requires a two-thirds majority vote by the state Senate to remove Krasner following the House impeachment. While the GOP has a 29 to 21 majority in the state Senate, it falls short of the two-thirds supermajority requirement.

Philadelphia set an all-time record last year, with 559 murders while Krasner was serving as district attorney.
