Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) is expressing her disapproval with how Senate Republican leadership is handling the trial of President Donald Trump following his impeachment by House Democrats.
Murkowski told KTUU NBC 2 that she is particularly perturbed that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is working with the White House directly to push back against the politically motivated witch hunt against Trump initiated by the Democrats with help from the deep state.
“And in fairness, when I heard that I was disturbed,” Murkowski said, referring to McConnell’s pledge for ‘total coordination’ with the Trump administration throughout the upcoming impeachment trial.
“To me, it means that we have to take that step back from being hand-in-glove with the defense, and so I heard what leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process,” she added.
Despite her anguish with Senate Republican leadership, Murkowski was also critical with how House Democrats conducted the impeachment of Trump as well.
“Speaker Pelosi was very clear, very direct that her goal was to get this done before Christmas,” Murkowski said, claiming that she believes the entire process has been needlessly rushed.
Murkowski was vague on the specifics, claiming that she wants a “full and fair process” and “how we will deal with witnesses remains to be seen.” She may end up being one of the Republicans who jumps ship and ends up voting to impeach the President.
“For me to prejudge and say there’s nothing there or on the other hand, he should be impeached yesterday, that’s wrong, in my view, that’s wrong,” Murkowski said.
Murkowski has been one of the most spineless RINOs of the Senate throughout her years serving in the chamber. She even voted against cloture for Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh after promulgated sexual assault claims emerged against him last year, attempting to deny Kavanaugh his rightful spot on the nation’s high court over a pack of lies.
“This has truly been the most difficult…decision that I’ve ever had to make,” Murkowski said to reporters at the time. “I believe he’s a good man. It just may be that in my view, he’s not the best man for the court at this time.”
While it is unlikely that the Senate will vote to convict President Trump, never underestimate the power of craven RINOs. Other impostors like Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Susan Collins (R-ME) may be the next to sell their souls and throw President Trump under the bus.
