Senator Lisa Murkowski is an interesting woman. During her last election, her name was not on the Alaskan ballot, because she lost to her Senate race opponent. That meant she was forced to have a write-in campaign. Even with that tongue-twister of a name, people wrote her name in — spelled correctly.
Someone leaked Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor (NSA) John Bolton’s latest manuscript to The New York Times. That was when Murkowski decided that she said that she was curious to see what he had to say. The Room Where It Happened was aptly named.
The senator tweeted that she has worked to “ensure this trial would be fair:”
‘(1/2) I stated before that I was curious as to what John Bolton might have to say. From the outset, I’ve worked to ensure this trial would be fair and that members would have the opportunity to weigh in after its initial phase to determine if we need more information.’
The Alaskan outdoorswoman continued, noting that the time to decide about “additional information” was “almost here:”
‘(2/2) I’ve also said there is an appropriate time for us to evaluate whether we need additional information —that time is almost here. I look forward to the White House wrapping up presentation of its case.’
Murkowski carries with her the independence and no-nonsense attitude found in many Alaskans. She is a third-generation resident and became one of the state’s senators in 2002. The Alaskan senator has had a reputation of working “collaboratively and across the aisle to reach common-sense solutions,” according to her Senate page.
Twitter world caught fire after she announced her intentions. Take a look at some of the really good ones below:
