The corruption in our government runs deeps and the rats are many...on both sides of the aisle. Having an “R” in your political affiliation means nothing anymore.
During an appearance on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” Republican Senator Ben Sasse refused to rule out impeaching President Donald Trump, or invoking the 25th Amendment.
Sasse told host Hugh Hewitt that Trump “incited the mob” to “go wild” in the Capitol this week.
“[T]he people’s Capitol, which is obviously the greatest symbol around the world of freedom and liberty and self-government, there’s polling all over the world that the dome of the Capitol is literally the most identifiable symbol of freedom, and it was ransacked by a mob that was incited by the President of the United States,” Sasse said. “While blood was actually being shed in the Capitol, and I was in the Senate chamber, and the Secret Service was trying to rush the vice president to safety, at those exact moments, the President is rage tweeting against the Vice President. Why? Because Mike, because Vice President Pence had the audacity to fulfill his oath of office to the Constitution. It’s a big deal. Lies have consequences.”
“The president had a rally hours before this happened where he is telling them to go to the Capitol and to go wild,” he continued. “This is a part of a pattern. The guy is addicted to division. This is a deep brokenness in his soul. You and I have talked about it multiple times. Donald Trump is a guy who hurts. And I hurt for him at an anthropological and a human level, but at a level of his oath of office to the Constitution, the duty of the president of the United States is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. And the President is addicted to social media and to television, and to division, and he’s been lying to the American people for eight straight weeks and planned it long before. No matter what was happening in any state, he was going to say the election was being stolen, and the people needed to rise up. But Wednesday morning, he said repeatedly to go wild when you get to the Capitol. And they went to the Capitol, and well, let’s be clear, Hugh, there are 30,000 people here. The vast majority of them are honorable, freedom-loving people. The vast majority of them, but not all of them.”
“Should he be impeached and removed?” Hewitt inquired.
Sasse replied, “I think that there are a lot of questions that we need to get to the bottom of about why the National Guard was not deployed, why was it delayed.”
He added, “So that’s what I’ve been working on last night and this morning. I want to understand more about why the National Guard wasn’t deployed when there had been clear calls for it, and then why that delay happened. So there are more things that I need to understand before I get to a conclusory judgment about that. But I think that the question of was the President derelict in his duty, that’s not an open question. He was.”
