Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski calls on President Trump to resign, questions her future as a Republic

Source: adn.com

Updated: 18 minutes ago calendar Published 47 minutes ago

............................
“I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused enough damage,” Murkowski, R-Alaska, said during an interview from her small Capitol office, steps away from the Senate chambers that were invaded by pro-Trump rioters on Wednesday.

“I think he should leave. He said he’s not going to show up. He’s not going to appear at the at the inauguration. He hasn’t been focused on what is going on with COVID. He’s either been golfing or he’s been inside the Oval Office fuming and throwing every single person who has been loyal and faithful to him under the bus, starting with the vice president. He doesn’t want to stay there. He only wants to stay there for the title. He only wants to stay there for his ego. He needs to get out. He needs to do the good thing, but I don’t think he’s capable of doing a good thing,” she said.

Trump to blame for riot, Murkowski says

Murkowski said that while “there may have been many, many, many, many good Americans who came to Washington, D.C., because they felt strongly in support of this president,” Trump incited them to storm the Capitol after a speech near the Washington Monument.

3. The GOP is fracturing right in front of our eyes.

Steve Schmidt predicted this for Jan 6.
He had no idea how bad it would be.

4. Yes it is. Quite a number of people here didn't seem to understand

this when attacking Never Trumpers.

5. I understand why people are attacking NTs. But right now the NT's are taking a wrecking ball

the the GOP.

The GOP is being smashed to smithereens right before our eyes.
They may not make it. We could see the end of the GOP soon.

6. I have a fair idea why they are too. Re the GOP, I don't think it be so clean

cut. The old guard are caught in a no win with hard core Trumpers, where they can't afford to lose their support but have to get out of all the lies Even a 10% loss in support would lose a lot of races

9. They made a deal with the devil and now cannot back out of it.

If they stay, they are dead on arrival.
If they leave, they are dead on arrival.

Every way I slice it, I get the same outcome.
Looks like a clean outcome to me.

They can break into two parties, but they will not win elections that way.

11. They don't have the guts to do it, they'll limp along. TLP looked

at setting up a new 3rd party and they decided that the scale of creating a party in 50 states just is not feasible. What may happen is that the Trumpers who make up about 20% may just group together to attack ordinary Republicans in primaries, and not bother voting in the November race, if their candidate doesn't win the primary.

8. BULLSHIT...you could have had him "out" last year but couldn't do it....

Murkowski says she 'cannot vote to convict,' but calls Trump's actions 'shameful and wrong'

Oh my....that really stopped Trump in his tracks eh Lisa??

21. But she got an oil deal for that.

Of course with the price of oil in the toilet and no future in it looks like she got a bag of beans instead.

10. Why is loyalty and faithful to "him" part of the GOP explanation of why he should be gone

The constitution does not require nor does their oath mention loyalty and faithfulness to a person. Donald Trump does not owe them anything even though they have kissed his a** and been loyal and faithful to him rather than to the country and constitution. They were not supposed to be loyal or faithful to him and should not have an expectation of that back.

Even in their exploration of what is wrong with him that is troubling to them, they focus only on terms that are antithetical to what office holders in a democracy should value.

15. We had a chance a year ago to avoid all this

But they failed to even listen to the evidence. So, your crocodile tears, Sen. Murkowski, are too little, too late.

17. I agree! For 4 yrs they have done nothing to keep him in check!

They have voted for all of his crooked and unqualified appointees, whether it be a cabinet member or judge. You had a chance to join Mitt Romney and vote for impeachment but you chose not to even though you knew he was guilty. Two weeks before he is gone, by not help from them, they find the courage to speak out. Sorry, you will be forever associated with the disastrous presidency of Donald Trump!
