A Never Trump Republican’s impeachment decision could change everything

Donald Trump’s political fate will be decided in a Senate impeachment trial.

No one knows what to expect.

And now a Never Trump Republican’s impeachment decision could change everything.

Utah Senator Mike Lee refused to vote for Donald Trump in 2016.

Lee supported Ted Cruz and famously protested Trump‘s nomination at the Republican National Convention.

But now, Lee is a strong supporter of the President and Trump named him one of the chairmen of the 2020 re-election effort.

And Lee has been working behind the scenes to help unify the Republican Senate around acquitting the President of the Democrats’ absurd articles of impeachment.

POLITICO reports:

The Utah Republican is working with the White House to track the wide-ranging viewpoints within the Republican Senate majority, including his Utah colleague and impeachment wild card Mitt Romney. That relationship could prove critical when the Senate considers difficult votes on witnesses or other motions, and ultimately on the president’s acquittal or conviction.

And though Lee is staying away from the cable news food fights that some of his colleagues are fixtures on, he’s not exactly urging a dulcet tone from Trump.

“He has every reason to be confident about this, every reason to be unapologetic and defiantly confident about his case. Because he has a really good case,” Lee said in an interview as the Senate left for the winter holidays late last week. “I have suggested all along: If [House Democrats] are going to do this, steer right into the wind.”

As soon as Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry this fall, Lee began regularly talking with the president and White House counsel Pat Cipollone about how to plan for the storm. Importantly, Lee has helped advise Trump and his team that the Senate shouldn’t just try to dismiss the impeachment charges but should instead hold a trial to exonerate him.

Lee is even working on keeping Utah RINO and Never Trump ring leader Mitt Romney on board.

Romney is the one Republican that could stab the President and his supporters in the back on an impeachment vote and Lee’s relationship with Romney could help maintain a united front that would exonerate President Trump.

  1. In case Lee’s actions POSITIVELY impress you, he is a strong constitutionalist. He has two books out – one dealing with the inception of the Constitution from the founding fathers’ perspective and the other addressing people and events that affected the founding of the country but have been written out of history over time. And, for the record, I never really have been a Trump fan but did vote for him in ’16. I had grown weary of the destructiveness to our republic which transpired during Obama’s reign of terror. I have been very impressed with his accomplishments and it would appear that GOP members weary of a Trump election have turned solidly in support of him – Lee being a great example and, yes, I plan to vote for him in again this year no matter who the Dems put up against him.

  2. I fully agree with every word you wrote Aline. You can’t fix stupid and those that back the Democrat agenda are STUPID, Some one said when you die you do not know you are dead, it works the same if you are stupid. They just don’t realize they are stupid and nothing we say or do will change their minds.

  3. Truth and Facts is a Total misnomer. The Democrats have no truth and no facts. It is a great sin to bear false witness and all I have ever heard from those that oppose Trump are lies followed by more lies.
    The Democrat party has become the communist party of the USA. They are either evil or merely stupid and in most cases a combination of both.

  4. And you, you dullard have provided zero evidence of your own barking mad assertions…give em up dullard. I want your “facts.”

  5. Mike Lee needs to support President Trump now more than ever! His poor management of his own state has allowed gang bangers and illegals to swarm in like a plague. Who will help you when things really get ugly there, the demoncraps? I dont think so!pull your head out of your ass rhino!!
