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.”

‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’
This is what real conservative leadership is all about.
Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.
Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:
Each risked his life to expose the crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State against the American people.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) November 27, 2020
Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.
“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.
“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.
Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.
One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”
AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”
… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.
Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
