MASSIVE FAIL: Democrats Plot to Take Down Trump
We warned not long ago that the Democrats would use the resignations of Al Franken and John Conyers to go after president Trump.
By appearing to have “cleaned house”, Democrat tried to deflect from their dirty deeds and demand Trump resign over his fake accusers.
But now it seems the Democrats have had a change of heart. Democratic leaders who insisted Al Franken resign now insist the “giant of the Senate” stay.
According to Breitbart:
At least four senators want Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) to rethink his resignation from Congress, including two senators who issued statements calling for Franken to step down two weeks ago, according to a report.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), one of the senators who did not call for Franken to resign from Congress until he went through an Ethics Committee investigation, said what the Democrats did to Franken was “atrocious” and “hypocritical.”
“What they did to Al was atrocious, the Democrats,” Manchin told Politico. “The most hypocritical thing I’ve ever seen done to a human being — and then have enough guts to sit on the floor, watch him give his speech and go over and hug him? That’s hypocrisy at the highest level I’ve ever seen in my life. Made me sick.”
Nice try, Manchin. Conservatives saw this one coming 100 miles away.
Why would the Party of Racism sacrifice a white Senator, when they had already given up a black man, namely John Conyers.
Moreover, with all the additional sex scandals to come, if the Democrats jettisoned all their perverts, there would be nobody left.
The payoff list of $17 million will include many Democrats, and we already know of the next black Congressman on the chopping block: Alcee Hastings.
So with all this dirty laundry blowing in the wind, why the quick move to drop Franken? There wasn’t one.
Well what of Harvey Weinstein? Should he be reinstated to “good health”? He has gone through rehab. Weinstein could come in handy around election time, when his payoffs, aka donations count.
How retro should the Democrats go? Will they reverse their stance on Conyers? Or will the black man remain the first one killed in this Hollyweird-meets-DC film noir.
The article continues:
“Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), who publicly called for the Minnesota Democrat to step down, told Franken privately that he regrets his statement.
A third senator, who declined to be identified because of how politically sensitive the issue is among Democrats, also regretted calling for Franken’s ouster.
“I think we acted prematurely, before we had all the facts,” said a third senator who has also called for the resignation, and has since expressed regret directly to Franken. “In retrospect, I think we acted too fast.”
Two of the senators who called for Franken to step aside told Politico that they felt rushed to comment on the issue as other meetings and hearings distracted them from giving their full attention to the situation while more Democrats piled on Franken.”
Is anyone really surprised they are now backtracking?
Truth is Democrats never cared what these senators have done and or are currently doing to their sexual abuse victims. Remembers when these allegations first came to light?
Democratic leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Shelia Lee Jackson both called Conyers an “Icon” and “Patriot.”
“Recently Nancy Pelosi declared Congressman John Conyers an icon. So what he’s embroiled in a sex scandal where he used taxpayer money to pay off his accuser. For Democrats, that’s scandal of IDOL proportion.
“John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women – Violence Against Women Act, which the left — right-wing — is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that,” she added.”
In addition, Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee on MSNBC also defended long time friend and congressman John Conyers.
In the interview Jackson Lee constantly dodged the “should he step down” question and instead remained defiant on behalf of her pal.
“I believe the decision to go or come will be the decision of that member. As I understand it, Mr. Conyers is with his family. I’m praying for them. I’m praying for the women to make their decision. But all of those decisions are at the behest of the member and I expect that to be the case here.”
When pressed whether or not she believes the women who have come forward accusing Conyers of sexual harassment Jackson Lee responded, “I’ve only known him to be a patriot.”
Hey Kirsten Gillibrand…IS THIS THING ON?
She was the one who started this fake story, so now what?
It looks like Democrats can resume considering grooming Franken as a potential presidential candidate to run against Trump in 2020:
National Journal recently declared:
“After years of shunning the spotlight in the Senate, Minnesota’s junior senator is in the limelight and would be a formidable candidate for the Democrats.”
“Al Franken isn’t a punch line in the Senate anymore. He’s emerged as one of the Democrats’ most aggressive and effective questioners of President Trump’s Cabinet nominees.” The Journal claims Franken is “one of the few Democrats willing to go full bore against his party’s top targets: Jeff Sessions, Tom Price, and Betsy DeVos.
Franken stayed because the Left realized that Franken’s replacement, a white woman might lose that seat.
