FLASHBACK: Watch Mike Lee Call For Trump To Drop Out in October 2016

Lee suggested voters didn’t have to settle for Trump

Published

on

A Senator from Utah who has been touted as a conservative leader and a name that has been floated for a soon-to-be vacated Supreme Court seat has a long history of trying to thwart President Donald J. Trump.

“Mr. Trump, I respectfully ask you, with all due respect, to step aside,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said in a video in October 2016. “Step down. Allow someone else to carry the banner of these [conservative] principles.”

Lee fancies himself a “true conservative” who has only warmed up to President Trump after an undeniably conservative first 18 months in office.

“Allow someone else to carry the banner of these principles that have made our country great,” he said. “The principles that will stand as a beacon of hope to the American family, rather than weighing down the American people, rather than weighing down the very principles that will help us in win in November.”

Had Trump stepped down in October of 2016, of course, the election would have been a bloodbath, and Lee’s precious “conservative” principles would have been permanently finished. The video is absolutely cringeworthy.

WATCH:

Not to mention, Lee does not have the most conservative record of late. The Senator sponsored a bill earlier this year that would have codified gay marriage into law for the first time in U.S. history.

Big League Politics reported:

“A Republican Senator who introduced a bill to protect the rights of religious people to express disapproval of gay marriage without fear of government reprisal has backed down.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) has added an amendment to the First Amendment Defense Act to protect gay marriage from discrimination. The bill currently sits at the Senate Judiciary Committee.

‘Liberty Counsel supported this bill with the original language,’ said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. ‘Now that he has insisted that the language be changed, we will not only withdraw our support but we will actively oppose the bill.’

LC is an international non-profit public policy and litigation organization focused on religious freedom, sanctity of life, and sanctity of marriage.”

BLP Passage Ends.

The last thing President Trump needs is a Judas on the Supreme Court, especially when there are so many well-qualified candidates that will actually uphold conservative principles.

Prominent GOP Attorney Says Jim Jordan Accuser Admitted He Was ‘Hoping’ to Get Money

Published

on

A prominent GOP attorney wrote a long defense of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on her personal Facebook page yesterday, in which she claimed that one of Jordan’s accusers has admitted to making his accusations on false pretenses.

Cleta Mitchell wrote the following:

“My friend Rep Jim Jordan is under attack by some very disreputable sources. To suggest that Rep Jordan would turn a blind eye to any injustice, wrongdoing, immoral or illegal act is absolutely laughable. Anyone who has known and worked with Jim Jordan, as I have, for nearly a decade knows that Rep Jordan never shies from a fight and that he leads the charge whenever there is a hint of something wrong – even to his own political detriment where others prefer that he remain silent, as they do. He never does.

The question I ask is why are these spurious allegations from disreputable sources being fomented against him now? Who is really behind this? It appears to me to be a concerted effort to smear one of the most honorable gentlemen ever to have served in the US House of Representatives. That is what NBC and other news outlets should be investigating…who is behind this? Can it be sources close to those in the Mueller investigation and the Department of Justice who are uncomfortable with Rep Jordan’s relentless pursuit of the truth behind what they have been doing for the past two years? That is much more likely than that these bizarre accusations are based in any facts whatsoever. We know Jim Jordan. We are only now learning about his accusers and there is something smelly about this entire episode. And yesterday, one of Jordan’s accusers admitted that they were “hoping” to get money … that’s a federal crime. Will the FBI arrest them?”

Mitchell did not specify which accuser was hoping to use the scandal for financial gain, but she is a GOP legal insider.

She confirmed her statement for Big League Politics but did not provide further details at this time.
