Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.) made an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, where he backtracked on his own calls for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) to resign.
“Listen, as somebody who spent 20 years trying to build a brand about Virginia Democrats and candidly Virginia, where we most recently won the award of the Amazon headquarters, it’s been very challenging,” Warner told Jake Tapper.
“But if the governor and lieutenant governor are going to continue, I think the lieutenant governor needs — there needs to be a due process where the accusers get a chance to make their case, where the lieutenant governor gets to make his defense,” Warner continued.
When Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was viciously smeared by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as a sexual predator during his confirmation hearings, Democrats were much less lenient with the idea of “due process.” Instead of giving Kavanaugh a chance to prove his innocence, they demanded he immediately withdraw his name from consideration.
“And one of the things, if the governor is going to continue to stay, what he needs to do is get out and start to try to re-earn the trust of Virginians,” Warned said. “When I called for his resignation along with my friend Tim Kaine, we said the governor had lost the faith of the people of Virginia. He has a right to try to regain that faith but I believe that will involve him getting out and making that case to Virginians.”
Again, the Democratic Party double-standard is highlighted. No Republican in the same situation as Northam would be afforded the opportunity to “re-earn the trust” of his constituents. Instead, he would be ruthlessly attacked until he resigned in disgrace.
Tapper pressed a bit further before the end of the segment asking for a “yes” or “no” on whether both men should step down. Warner again dodged the question.
“Listen, I think that we’ve made our – we made our call weeks ago,” he said. “If both of these gentlemen are going to stay, there needs to be a process in place that they can go about trying to re-earn the faith of Virginians.”

Democrats Ready Lobbying Push to End Senate Filibuster In the Event of Biden Victory
They hope to dominate the opposition.
D.C. Democrats are preparing a lobbying effort to erase the traditional filibuster rule in the United States Senate, which requires 60 votes for the passage of most new legislation.
Eli Zupnick, a former top aide to Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, will lead Fix Our Senate, a group that will demand the Senate alter its rules to jam through a progressive policy agenda.
“Our goal is to lift the filibuster higher on progressives’ agendas … [and] make it clear to a future President Biden and Senate leadership that they expect and demand speedy Senate rules reform in 2021 and will not accept more gridlock, delays, and excuses,” Zupnick told NBC.
Senator Chris Coons of Connecticut had earlier warned that he would not ‘accept’ no for an answer when it comes to the implementation of a Biden administration agenda. Many Democrats are still upset that the then-Republican Senate minority blocked much of President Obama’s policy wish list during his administration.
“I will not stand idly by for four years and watch the Biden administration’s initiatives blocked at every turn,” said the neoliberal Democrat, who frequently fashions himself as a moderate. Coons is reportedly playing a role in preparing the push to end the Senate filibuster. Joe Biden himself has been reluctant to sign off on such a proposal, claiming he wants to wait and see how he would potentially work with Senate Republicans as President.
Democrats hope to force through a boatload of progressive policies, including federal gun control(with the possibility of confiscation), unlimited abortion, new taxes on middle-class Americans, globalist free trade deals, and massive increases in legal immigration.
The demand that major legislation be passed with merely 50 votes will quickly disappear in the event that Democrats fail to secure a Senate majority in November.
