All of the Senate Republicans should be fired with the exception of Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AL) and Mitt Romney (R-UT). Why? These two senators are the only ones who told truth to power. The rest of the Republican legislators are cowards of the worst order. They stood silent, complicit as Donald Trump ran roughshod over our democracy.
These yellow-bellied milksops of so-called leaders think people will forget that they let them go hungry in miles-long food lines and ignored the cries of their literally starving children.
They believe we will discount their vacations as we are evicted and lose our only savings, the equity in our homes. These senators mislead themselves into feeling that we will not remember the lives of our loved ones cut short, the grandparents, mothers, fathers, and yes, children.
They are wrong. If nothing else, this unnecessary Cornoavirus pandemic has taught us what is seriously flawed in our government and how to change it. They value their jobs more than American lives. Given that the Republican senators will not do their jobs, the people will actively work to oust them from office, including the two corrupt Georgia senators, with this simple message: You’re fired.
Once again, Murkowski showed her independence and courage when she demanded that Trump admit that he lost in his bid to win the presidential election. She told POTUS to just concede to President-elect Joe Biden. Imagine if every Republican senator followed her example, but they will not. They are weak.
The Alaskan senator spoke to CNN’s Manu Raju Monday, according to The Newsweek magazine. She was also one of the exceedingly rare Republicans to congratulate Biden, but she did not say whom she voted for herself. Her vote was not important she told Raju, it was not “the pertinent question of the day.” The senator continued:
‘I think he should concede. I think the race is over.’
Trump has refused to concede, and most Republican senators and those in. the administration are afraid to suggest what Murkowski just did. They walk around like shy seventh-grade girls handing notes to their fellow Democrats, whispering instructions to congratulate Biden.
The sitting president claims that he was cheated and his election was “stolen,” and continues along his merry way with his daylight coup. Murkowski called Trump out for trying to overturn the election via the courts and his illicit efforts. POTUS has tried to bully, cajole, and bribe state officials into handing him the presidency.
Early on, Murkowski called for Trump to let the transition process between the outgoing Trump administration and the incoming Biden administration begin. She released a statement on November 22 that read:
“President Trump has had the opportunity to litigate his claims, and the courts have thus far found them without merit.’
‘A pressure campaign on state legislators to influence the electoral outcome is not only unprecedented but inconsistent with our democratic process. It is time to begin the full and formal transition process.;
Finally, those who best knew their way around Trump convinced him to let the transition begin officially, 29 days after it should have started. He let the Government Services Administration (GSA) release the formal “letter of ascertainment, the linchpin of the entire transition.
Murkowski said, according to Axios:
‘It is time to begin the full and formal transition process.’
At long last, both Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris receive the daily classified security briefings. As a senator, Harris was already receiving more classified information than the president-elect.
