BETRAYAL: Retiring GOP Senator Sides With Democrat-Led Coup to Impeach President Trump
Another Republican has defected to the side of the Democrats and the deep state, joining in the impeachment witch hunt against President Donald Trump.
Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), after he was informed of the testimony of U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland earlier today, said to reporters “that sounds like a hard quid pro quo.”
“That’s the firmest anybody could say about that categorization of it,” Isakson said. “To my knowledge, everything that was said before was a soft quid pro quo.”
Isakson – who is set to retire from the Senate at the end of this year with three years left in his term – had been an opponent of the impeachment inquiry before making this apparent flip-flop.
“The House of Representatives is abandoning more than a century’s worth of precedent and tradition in impeachment proceedings and denying President Trump basic fairness and due process accorded every American,” the resolution previously supported by Isakson states.
Isakson is repeating the line from the fake news that Sondland’s testimony today somehow vindicated the Democrats when he repeatedly admitted that President Trump never ordered a quid pro quo.

Q: No one else on this planet told you that Donald Trump was tying aid to these investigations, is that correct?

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of the House Freedom Caucus tore into Sondland while questioning the bureaucrat for his obfuscatory statements meant to fuel the impeachment witch hunt.

Perhaps due to his betrayal, the swamp is honoring Isakson for his years of service in Washington D.C. Democrats who hate the President and the U.S. Constitution are very sad to see him go.
“You, senator, led a team that could cross the aisle without compromising your values,” Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) said of Isakson on Tuesday.
“I will come over to meet you, brother,” Lewis added before going to embrace the senator across the room.
“I wish all of America could be here to see that: Two icons from Georgia embracing,” Rep. Austin Scott (R-GA) said about the two career politicians sharing a hug.
“What a wonderful sight that I think is representative of days of past and the days to come and how we should work together. Thank you both so much,” he added.
While the swamp may be sad to see Isakson’s imminent departure from public office, it gives the people of Georgia an opportunity to put a solidly conservative pro-Trump voice into the Senate to replace this flip-flopper.
