Help Wanted: Republicans Willing To Defend Our Country

Help Wanted: Republicans Willing To Defend Our Country
Froma Harrop September 29, 2019


The issue is now national security. And to understand its seriousness, note that the Republican-led Senate unanimously consented to release the whistleblower’s complaint to the intel committees.

Until now, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was putting all 10 fingers in the dam to hold off demands from the Democratic base to start the disrupting process to remove Trump. Now Pelosi has gone ahead with an impeachment inquiry. This followed moves by moderate Democrats to drop their reluctance to go after Trump this way.

That should be a signal to all Republicans, not just swing-state ones. The dam is breaking.

We understand that an impeachment inquiry precedes making formal allegations. It is a collection of information that could eventually lead to a vote by the House to impeach the president.

And, of course, a decision to impeach does not remove the president from office. He first would have to be tried and convicted in the Senate. It still remains highly unlikely that enough Republican votes could be found there to end the presidency — even though so many Republican members of Congress secretly loathe the man.

What we need is more brave Republican men and women to stand up for their country. We’re not talking about Republicans who have decided not to run for reelection but those who are. These would be patriots willing to displease the Trump base for the public good.

This really shouldn’t be such a hard ask. Our soldiers put their lives on the line to defend this country. It would seem far less a sacrifice to risk reelection for the same cause.

1. Their are no true lovers of our country in the Russian Repug crew.

They are lovers of money - love to steal from the poor and working class that they disdain to give to the rich and themselves. They believe there is no law worth supporting when it comes to their illegal behavior and no good thing Dems do that they won't try to twist into a heinous ac in the eyes of the public. They are anti-America. Their fealty for Russia is ephemeral and only there as long as PUtin is supporting their fascism because he will absolutely destroy them when he wants to create mass chaos.
