GOP senators wrestle with purging Trump from party

 

Republican senators are wrestling over what they want their party’s future relationship with Donald Trump to be after he leaves office on Wednesday.

 

Faced with a deeply divided Senate Republican Conference, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is giving his colleagues free rein to vote their conscience when the Senate tries Trump on charges that he incited an insurrection.

 

McConnell is telling colleagues that he himself hasn’t decided whether to vote to convict Trump on a House-passed article of impeachment and associates describe the GOP leader “as furious” over that attack on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob.

 

The New York Times reported that McConnell has told associates that he sees the impeachment effort as a way for the Republican Party to break with Trump, although the GOP leader later discounted what he called “speculation” in the press.

 

A Senate vote to convict Trump would need at least 17 Republican votes to be successful, if all 50 Democratic senators vote to convict. A second vote could be held to prevent Trump from running for office again. That would require a simple Senate majority.

 

While a good number of Republican senators would like to break free of what they see as the destabilizing and often erratic leadership of Trump, Republican strategists and aides warn there is a serious political risk to banning him from future political office.

 

“I don’t think it’s an easy call, but I think there would be a lot more Republican support evident if it were not linked to the Democrats’ clear desire to prevent him from running for office ever again,” said Vin Weber, a Republican strategist. “That’s the real question politically.

 

“A lot of people in both parties who want Trump just gone think, ‘That’s good, we’ll just get rid of Trump. He can’t run again,’ ” he added.

The Coming Republican Amnesia

 

As Donald Trump lurches through the disastrous final days of his presidency, Republicans are just beginning to survey the wreckage of his reign. Their party has been gutted, their leader is reviled, and after four years of excusing every presidential affront to “conservative values,” their credibility is shot. How will the GOP recover from the complicity and corruption of the Trump era? To many Republicans, the answer is simple: Pretend it never happened.

 

“We’re about to see a whole political party do a large-scale version of ‘New phone, who dis?’” says Sarah Isgur, a former top spokesperson for the Trump Justice Department. “It will be like that boyfriend you should never have dated—the mistake that shall not be mentioned.”

 

The plan might seem implausible, but I’ve heard it floated repeatedly in recent days by Republican strategists who are counting down the minutes of the Trump presidency. The hardcore MAGA crowd will stay loyal, of course, and those few who have consistently opposed Trump will escape with their reputations intact. But for the majority of GOP officials, apparatchiks, and commentators who sacrificed their dignity at the altar of Trump, a collective case of amnesia seems destined to set in the moment he leaves office.

GOP can no longer say they are the Party of Lincoln. Look at what the WH just released. They are the party of White Supremacy. They own Trump and everything with him. The WH released this on MLK Jr Day.

Wyoming secede?  :ols:  Isn't that what cowards do, run away?  How patriotic.

 

Wyoming GOP chairman floats secession after Cheney votes to impeach Trump

 

Wyoming GOP Chairman Frank Eathorne suggested the idea to War Room Pandemic podcast host and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon in a weekend interview focused on the decision by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the third-ranked Republican in the House, to vote in favor of impeaching Trump on a charge of incitement of insurrection related to the deadly riot that took place at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

 

“We need to focus on the fundamentals that’s been stated in this broadcast, and that is what Wyoming is," Eathorne stated. "We are straight-talking, focused on the global scene, but we’re also focused at home. Many of these Western states have the ability to be self-reliant, and we’re keeping eyes on Texas too and their consideration of possible secession. Now, they have a different state constitution than we do as far as wording, but it is something that we’re all paying attention to.”

 

Bannon, in response, said he was “absolutely, 1,000% against any even discussion of secession."

If even Bannon thinks your idea is crazy and stupid, then well...

The title of the thread explains everything. White supremacists are idiots and have nothing to do with conservatism. No matter how much you wish they did.

I remember listening to talk radio (primarily right-wing) after Obama won re-election.  You had all the same typical "self reflection" brew-ha-ha for about 48hrs and then it was right back to how awful Obama was, how the real way back to power was to go more right wing, tea party nonsense blah blah blah.....The GOP was already to the point of being useless before Trump got in, Trump just took the garbage on the offensive and turned out more voters, but the GOP at large was and likely still is in favor of a lot of the horrible policies still.

At least they're no longer lying about making it harder to vote for security reasons.

 

I'm willing to bet they are.

I like what Nancy Grace has been saying publicly. I hope she's on the level and just not a smarter brand of Trumper.

 

She's been moving.  After the riots her initial position sounded very "both sides".  Now with companies pulling funding from the GOP, she, like Mitch, is moving to the "lies were a problem/we need to fix our party" stance.  Yea...they got there.  But only after money talked.  So right now I'm not buyin' into it.

If.  

 

History says that their reaction will be:  

 

1)  There's nothing whatsoever wrong with our policies.  We just need to package them a little differently.  

2)  And to become more resentful about being forced to hide their objectives.

Donald Trump has been indefinitely suspended from Twitch.

Quote

Donald Trump has been indefinitely suspended from Twitch. After the Capitol Building insurrection, Twitch suspended the then-president, now-professional angry baby man (who is no doubt weeks or even days from a TV deal), but with the caveat that it would “reassess his account after he leaves office.” In a statement, Twitch said that it’s turning the suspension into what essentially amounts to a ban because Trump’s statements “continue to be interpreted as calls to action, and we are taking this action to remove the potential for harm to our community and the general public.”
