Excerpts from the article:
WASHINGTON—As credible allegations of election malfeasance continue to emerge, the majority of Republican politicians remain on the sidelines, simply saying that the president deserves his day in court.
On the federal level, among the most outspoken are, predictably, members of the House Freedom Caucus, many of whom hail from one of the six contested states—Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.
There are 196 Republican representatives in the House, and a scroll through the Twitter accounts of many found they were united last week in protesting against efforts to pass legislation on marijuana legalization instead of relief for small businesses.
But there were barely any posts that address election issues, amplify the election allegations made, or comment on the recent hearings held in the contested states—suggesting they’re avoiding wading in.
On Dec. 5, Trump said the Democratic Party couldn’t be happier with both Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, both Republicans.
“They fight harder against us than do the Radical Left Dems. If they were with us, we would have already won both Arizona and Georgia,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Epoch Times contributor and political commentator Roger Simon said the disparity highlights the existence of two Republican parties.
“One is the party of the rank and file—which is clearly behind Trump, as 95 percent voted for him. And the other is the old establishment Party, which is partly Never Trumpers and partly just establishment bores,” Simon said.
“So what you’re dealing with is a huge split between the actual people who vote Republican—the actual people that the political party exists for—and the people who are running the party. Now, not all of them, there’s some good people.”
But, Simon warned, the politicians should “wake up and listen to their voters.”
Listen to Loud Dobbs at the 2:00 mark. “Where the hell are the Republicans”…”they are gutless”!]
Lee Smith, author of “The Permanent Coup” and contributor to The Epoch Times, said many Republicans are scared “because of what the Democrats have done in partnership with the intelligence services and the press” over the last four years.
“They’re scary things,” Smith said, referring to the last four years, which included disproven allegations of Russia-collusion, impeachment against the president, and campaigns against politicians such as Rep. Devin Nunes (R–Calif.) for denouncing the unmasking of Trump transition team members, as well as the illegal spying conducted as part of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
“People are also disoriented,” Smith said. “It’s very hard to recognize these different things. It’s the United States—is it really possible that the intelligence services are working with the media to prosecute campaigns of political warfare? Well, sure, seems pretty far out. But that’s exactly what’s happened.”
[LFC Add: Here is Senator Chuck Schumer with a not so subtle warning to President Trump on September 26, 2019) [:52 mark on video] : “if you take on the intelligence community, they have “six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”
It begs the question: “Who is really running the county?” Would a corrupt F.B.I, D.O.J and C.I.A. perhaps have “files” on our elected politicians, thereby compromising them to remain silent, or are many Republican elected officials really just more politically aligned with the Democrats than their voters?
We disagree with Senator Schumer (no surprise there) , something needs to be done to clean out the corruption of the Deep State in the intelligence community. Weak-kneed Republicans, more concerned about their pensions, are not up to the task.]
