There is a bipartisan push to impeach and remove Donald Trump from the White House that includes a substantial number of influential current or former Republicans.
Some of these nonmembers of the Cult of Trump have started to form organizations dedicated to Individual One’s removal via impeachment or defeat at the ballot box in 2020.
One new entity, led by conservative heavyweights George Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson has formed The Lincoln Project, an organization whose mission is to defeat Donald Trump and elect “patriots” that will not drink the 2016 KKK endorsed Candidates Kool-Aid.
Another new group, Republicans for the Rule of Law “is a group of life-long Republicans dedicated to defending the institutions of our republic and upholding the rule of law. We are fighting to make sure that the laws apply equally to everyone, from the average citizen to the president of the United States.”
Other Republicans that have voiced support for the impeachment process include:
- Two 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates (Carley Fiorina and John Kasich.)
- One former National Chair Republican Party Chair (Micheal Steele.)
- Former Senators (Jeff Flake and Slade Gorton.)
- Former Representatives or current television pundits (Nicole Wallace, Charlie Dent, David Jolly, and Joe Scarborough.)
- Conservative columnists ( Jennifer Rubin, Bill Kristol, and Charlie Sykes.)
- Legal specialists (Judge Andrew Napolitano.)
Unfortunately, all the Republicans that support impeachment (like those listed above), with the exception of now independent House Representative Justin Amash and possibly some undeclared Senators (like Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney) are not in the House or Senate.
Regrettably, it seems the seduction of having power as a legislator, a future in Republican politics, and fear of one’s electoral base are powerful tonics for Republican Representatives and Senators that “Trumps” following the Constitution and doing what is right for the country.
It is time for the people to stop saying that the impeachment process is a Democratic Party only movement.
Clearly, Republicans outside Congress have the courage to defend the Constitution and the good sense to promote reality rather than the alternative fiction residents of the Trump Zone and Fox Island Commentary shows consume.
It is time for Republican members of Congress to show the same courage and do what is right for the country.
Like the moderate Democrats risking their careers in purple or red-leaning districts, it is better to be remembered following your conscience and doing your job than ignoring your responsibilities and allowing the 2016 Popular Vote Loser to run amuck thinking he can do whatever he wants to the detriment of the Republic.
Country Before Party.
