NEW: Moderate ‘Republican’ Senators Won’t Commit to Keeping Trump If There’s a Removal Vote

These “Republican” Senators won’t say whether they would vote to keep Trump.

After Big League Politics contacted several moderate “Republican” Senators – perhaps known better as members of the GOP establishment – to see if they would commit to voting against the potential removal of President Donald J. Trump, we found that none were willing to commit to keeping the 45th President.

As the 2020 election draws nearer, the possibility of the members of the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives impeaching Trump on the basis of the bogus “Russian collusion” investigation – which turned up empty – is a continuing topic of discussion. Some Democrats want to impeach the President despite the fact that he decidedly did not “collude” with any Russians, according to Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report clearing Trump of any wrongdoing. Holding the majority in the House, they have the votes to accomplish this goal – at least in theory.

In the event that the House votes to impeach Trump, there would be a removal vote held in the Senate, requiring a two-thirds majority to actually remove Trump. With only a small majority in the Senate, and considering how some Republicans have wavered in their support of Trump, the 67 votes required to remove him from office could be achieved if some of the noted fence-sitters side with Democrats.

To that end, Big League Politics reached out to several Senate offices and asked them a simple question: In the event of a removal vote based specifically on the findings of the Mueller report, would they vote against removing Trump?

After reaching out to the offices of Sens. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and Susan Collins (R-Maine) several times over a period of three days, none of the Senators would commit to voting against a potential removal. In fact, none of them even bothered to answer the question.

Murkowski and Collins have actively fought against Trump’s border security initiatives. Both were notoriously flaky during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Sasse has been openly critical of Trump.

Furthermore, middle-of-the-road members of the higher chamber of Congress like Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) have rebuked Trump in the wake of the Mueller report, despite the fact that it clears the president of wrongdoing. At the moment, Romney is on record stating that he would not support Trump’s impeachment.

Madison Cawthorn Once Opposed Electoral College Certification…Now He Says Biden’s Victory was Legitimate

He is waffling and equivocating like a veteran RINO.

Published

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) has admitted that he never thought there was large-scale voter fraud that occurred in the 2020 presidential election, and he only opposed certifying the electoral college results as a political calculation.

Cawthorn made the admission when he was pressed during an appearance on CNN. Liberals are gloating on Twitter over Cawthorn’s pathetic and embarrassing hypocrisy:

“I think I would say the election was not fraudulent. The Constitution allowed for us to be able to push back as much as we could, and I did that to the … constitutional limits that I had at my disposal. So now I would say that Joseph R. Biden is our president,” Cawthorn said.

Cawthorn’s CNN appearance, which should be used as an example for Republican lawmakers of how not to deal with the press, can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on Cawthorn’s suspect behavior in the past and warned that he could be another RINO trying to dupe Trump supporters:

Madison Cawthorn, who is the Republican U.S. Rep. candidate for North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District, is calling for a “new Republican Party” that pays lip service to issues that are important to leftists.

“The status quo days of the GOP being defined by what we are against, rather than what we are for, are over. We intend to listen, but we also intend to win the argument,” he wrote in his op/ed for the Daily Wire.

Instead of opposing left-wing policies, Cawthorn wants Republicans to capitulate and give concessions to the Left in order to placate to young people in Generation Z who overwhelmingly support leftist politics.

“For the past two decades, however, the Republican Party has marginalized principled reformers in its own ranks and let itself be branded as the “party of no.” On things such as health care, the environment, and other key issues, our leadership has aggressively attacked ideas from the Left but has failed to force consensus around the best ideas from the Right,” Cawthorn wrote.

“Our party, the Grand Old Party, is no longer very grand. But it is very old. Our leaders have failed us and it’s time we stopped putting up with it,” he added.

He wants Republicans to embrace government solutions on issues like healthcare and the environment while echoing woke talking points with regards to race.

“Our party ought not to be ashamed of its heritage nor be afraid of open debate and challenging the “woke” left. On race, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) is right and wise to remind conservatives that unjust racial bias is real and persistent. As Scott, who is black, notes, he knows what it’s like to be pulled over to be stopped by security in the Capitol because of the color of his skin. We’ve come a long way, but Scott is right to remind Republicans that we have a long way to go,” Cawthorn wrote.

He also added a thinly-veiled shot as President Donald Trump, which is par for the course considering he is being published in ‘Never Trump’ icon Ben Shapiro’s blog.

“Let us rise as a New Republican Party. A party that offers real solutions and attacks ideas rather than individuals. A party that meets voters where they are, and instead of belittling them for what they care about, offers a better way,” Cawthorn wrote.

Cawthorn may be a sympathetic figure due to his handicap but he may be a dangerous RINO waiting in the weeds. His constituents in North Carolina must keep him honest if he is going to be an effective conservative lawmaker.
