Labrador says he’s ‘not going to go on a witch hunt’ aimed at Trump

At one point during Rep. Raul Labrador’s town-hall meeting tonight, after an extended exchange with a questioner who called for him to back investigations of President Trump, the crowd began chanting, “Do your job, do your job!”

Labrador paused, smiled, and spread his arms. “Two years ago, the shoe was on the other foot,” he said. “And I would go to town halls and have Republicans yelling at me, ‘Why didn’t you impeach Obama?’” He said, “I’m not going to go on a witch hunt.”
