Liz Cheney, a top House Republican, says Trump Georgia call is 'deeply troubling,' says everyone

Source: USA Today

should listen to full audiotape

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., a top House Republican, said Monday President Donald Trump's call with top Georgia election officials asking them to "find" more votes for him was "deeply troubling," making her the highest-level Republican to publicly criticize Trump's conduct.

Cheney, who is the third-ranking House Republican, told reporters on Capitol Hill the call was "deeply troubling, and I think everybody ought to listen to the full hour of it."

Her remarks laid bare divisions between Trump and the Republican Party just a day before a crucial runoff election in Georgia that could determine control of the Senate. Republican lawmakers have increasingly broken with the president, including on a major defense policy bill and Trump's attempts to overturn the Electoral College results in Congress.

Trump has taken criticism from some Republican lawmakers for his remarks on the call. Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., a stalwart defender of the president, said on "Fox & Friends" Monday morning the call was “not a helpful call.”

4. Exactly!

 

I'm so sick of Republicans so troubled that they can't lift a finger or voice to do anything about it.

3. Now they are concerned because they are about to lose the senate from his illegal actions.

He broke many other laws along the way, but you bastards turned a blind eye.
If there was no election in Georgia right now, they wouldn't give a s41t.

15. Why Do They Always Pull Their Punches When It Comes To Trump

It is much worse than "deeply troubling". It is frighteningly alarming to the degree that legal action must occur.
