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.
Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships
Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’
As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.
Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.
Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.
Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.
It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.
Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.
Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.
An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.
Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.
Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
