After Receiving Trump’s Endorsement, Sen. Ben Sasse Throws Him Under the Bus Over Ukraine Call

This “Never Trumper” is showing his true colors.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) received President Trump’s endorsement earlier this month, in a sign of good faith from Trump in attempts to unify Republican Party before next year’s crucial election.

Sasse is repaying the President for his kind gesture by stabbing him in the back, as he is now urging Republicans to admonish Trump over a whistle-blower’s complaint. Sasse is concerned about a conversation Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July, in which the corrupt actions of Vice President Joe Biden were discussed.

“There are real troubling things here Republicans ought not just circle the wagons and Democrats ought not be using words like “impeach” before they knew anything about the actual substance,” Sasse said today after seeing the whistle-blower’s complaint.

Sasse is aiding the Democrats’ efforts against Trump in spite of the fact that reports have shown that the whistle-blower was motivated by partisanship.

Big League Politics reported on the whistle-blower’s alleged bias on Tuesday night:

A senior Trump administration official claims that the intelligence community inspector general determined that the whistle-blower who alleged Trump’s wrongdoing was motivated by “political bias” due to their support for “a rival candidate” of the President.

A different senior Trump administration official said to Fox News that the Trump administration is now working to release the whistle-blower’s complaint to Congress, as it appears that Trump has baited desperate Democrats into making fools of themselves yet again.

Journalist Jack Posobiec of the One America News Network reported tonight that the contents of the complaint filed by the whistle-blower were highly dubious and lacking credibility.

The legal representation chosen by the whistle-blower is extremely suspect as well:

Former CIA official Andrew Bakaj, who once worked at Hillary Clinton’s office while she was a Senator, is representing the whistle-blower who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky…

He started his career working under influential former Democratic lawmakers. Bakaj served as an intern for the late former Sen. Daniel Moynihan (D-NY), then as an intern under Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and then he worked under Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY).

Curiously, Bakaj also interned at the U.S. Embassy in the Ukraine, showing that he has ties to the country that is under the microscope right now for President Trump’s reported communication with their leader about Joe Biden’s dealings.

Sasse’s disloyal and craven comments today show that anyone who was once a “Never Trumper” can never be trusted to stand strong when it counts.

Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Another victory for the war party.

Published

on

Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.

The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.

“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.

“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.

“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”

The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.

“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.

“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.

The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
