Here’s What John McCain And Lindsey Graham Said When Trump Got Elected

Published

on

WASHINGTON — Big League Politics can exclusively report what Republican senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham said to each other immediately after learning that Donald Trump won the presidential election back in November.

The neoconservative senators were watching the results come in together, according to a knowledgeable source. When it became clear that Trump was the winner over Hillary Clinton, the disappointed senators exchanged the following dialogue:

GRAHAM: “Well, now we’re going to have to deal with this guy for four years.”

MCCAIN: “No. He’s going to have to deal with us.”

Both establishment Republicans were clearly rooting for Clinton to beat Trump on election night. While Graham appeared somewhat willing to compromise with the new president-elect, McCain’s response made it clear that he had no intention of helping the Trump presidency succeed.

Both neocons have stayed true to their obstructionist designs. Graham and McCain fought Trump tooth and nail on the unsubstantiated theory that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russians during the election cycle. That conspiracy theory has served as the basis of absurd Senate committee hearings and now an investigation — led by establishment Republicans — in the House Intelligence Committee.

Fellow neoconservative establishment Republican Marco Rubio has also gone along for the ride on Russia.

McCain and Graham appear happier now that they’ve dragged the Trump administration into military conflict with Syria, an ally of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Trump’s bombing of Syrian government targets — and his potential ground invasion to remove Syrian president Bashar al Assad — stand to further de-stabilize that wartorn country and further embolden Islamist rebel groups including ISIS.

Rand Paul Warns Third Party Will Rise if Republican Senators Vote with Democrats to Convict President Trump

The GOP is crumbling.

Published

on

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is warning that at least one-third of GOP senators will revolt and leave the party if Republicans join Democrats to convict the president.

This would potentially create the most viable third party in recent political history if Republican leadership is foolish enough to go down this path. Even though he refused to oppose the vote steal last week, Paul claims he and many of his colleagues intend to leave the party forever if the Senate goes through with impeachment.

“I didn’t agree with the fight that happened last week. I voted against over-turning the election,” Paul said while appearing on FOX News on Friday night. “But at the same time, the impeachment is a wrongheaded, partisan notion. If Republicans go along with it, it will destroy the party. A third of the Republicans will leave the party.”

“A third of the Republicans will leave the party,” Paul added. “This isn’t about, anymore, about the Electoral College, it’s about the future of the party, and whether you’re going to ostracize and excommunicate President Trump from the party. Well, guess what? Millions of his fans will leave as well.”

Paul made these responses after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) publicly flirted with the idea of voting to convict President Trump.

“I have not made a final decision on how I will vote and I intend to listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate,” McConnell said.

Paul is putting McConnell and the rest of the GOP leadership on notice. This is the line in the sand as far as he is concerned.

“They will destroy the Republican Party. If leadership is complicit with an impeachment or if leadership votes for an impeachment, they will destroy the party,” Paul said. 

“Like I say, I have opposed President Trump when I thought he was wrong, I’ve been for him when he was right. We did a lot of good things throughout the Trump presidency, and impeachment is purely a partisan thing,” he added.

The full segment with Paul and host Laura Ingraham can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on the division within the GOP since 10 Republican turncoats in the House join Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time:

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added…

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

The realignment that is happening within the conservative movement might result in the destruction of the Republican Party. President Trump may ultimately destroy the GOP swamp.
