There are few GOP establishment politicians I despise more than Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse. The man has done nothing in the Senate, mostly because he spends his time attacking President Trump at every turn. Such was the case yesterday, when Sasse chided actual Republicans for “circling the wagons” around the president.
Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said Wednesday his fellow Republicans “ought not to be rushing to circle the wagons” around President Donald Trump over his pressuring of the Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.
Wow Benny, you’re so edgy. No wonder Mitt Romney likes cuddling with you during late night “filibusters.”
also knocked Democrats who demanded the president’s impeachment before they had viewed the whistleblower complaint at the heart of the Ukraine matter.
“Republicans ought not to be rushing to circle the wagons to say there’s no there there when there’s obviously lots that’s very troubling there,” he continued. “The administration ought not to be attacking the whistleblower as some talking points suggest they plan to do.”
Someone who can stand to be near Sasse for twelve seconds should ask him exactly what’s so “troubling” about a president calling another president. They should also ask Benny what’s troubling about a president inquiring about an obviously inappropriate, if not corrupt, business deal made solely for future access to an American vice-president.
What I find troubling is during all Sasse’s whining, he never mentioned the core issue of the matter: Hunter Biden’s board appointment and Joe Biden’s demand to fire the prosecutor investigating it.
