Francis Rooney, the sole House Republican to say he is considering President Trump’s impeachment, announced a day later that he is retiring from Congress.

The Florida congressman was asked on Fox News Saturday if he would be seeking a third term, and he said he was not.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I don’t really think I do, and I don’t really think I want one,” Rooney said. “I’ve done what I came to do.”

Rooney made news Friday when he admitted he was “thinking about” impeaching Trump. His surprise statement came after White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney seemed to indicate that aid to Ukraine was withheld, in part, over a request for an investigation into the hacking of Democratic National Committee’s servers.

Mulvaney later walked-back the statement.

Watch Rooney’s statement on re-election in the video below or at THIS LINK.

    We worked for Rooney’s election and donated money For his election, but Rooney voted against funding for The Wall, and I was surprised he did that, and I told him so and scolded him. What the hell was Rooney thinking? Maybe he’d been getting paid off in some way, but when you are elected to do the right things for the electorate, we damn well expect you to live up to that part of the deal. So Rooney has behaved very badly IMO.

    Wow, apparently the corruption-maybe blackmail- of the last administration and the dnc runs deep. They seem terrified now that it’s about to come out. https://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/ukraine-sabotage-trump-backfire-233446
    They’ve turned the current administration’s desire to NOT give aid to corrupt countries into campaign interference?!

    My guess is if he voted to impeach he would have lost his election anyway. He saw the writing on the wall. Hope a true conservative decided to run.

    I am not sure who I have less respect for: the lying republican politicians who are backstabbing President Trump, or the lying republicans who refuse to defend him and choose to bail from their positions. Frankly, I am glad some are retiring or leaving. Good riddens to bad rubbish! We need new blood in our govt AND we need term limits. When President Trump gets re-elected, term limits must be the Number One priority!

    When you step on dog shit on you way to visit you neighbor and then wipe it on their new white living room rug. Don’t expect to be invited back. You are lucky if they don’t kick you ass and throw you in the street. He had no chance of being re-elected now. In fact he would have been beat in the primary.

    During that interview he also talked about how he went to Nancy Pelosi “for help” pushing his bill to ban oil drilling. Did he have a quid-quo-pro agreement with Nancy that he would do something to “help” Democrats in return?
