Who's More in Lockstep — Republicans With Trump, or Democrats With Biden?
The answer is: Senate Democrats have been in lockstep much more with Biden than Senate Republicans were with Trump.
From this site:
There was an extraordinary Senate debate this week in Orem, Utah, between Sen. Mike Lee and challenger Evan McMullin. It was extraordinary in part because McMullin, who is running as an independent and says that if elected he will not caucus with either Democrats or Republicans, agreed with Lee in many policy areas, like federal spending and regulatory overreach. “I think our difference is in approach,” McMullin said at one point.
Instead, McMullin slashed Lee repeatedly over former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. McMullin accused Lee of urging the Trump White House “to find fake electors to overturn the will of the people.” It wasn’t true — a look at the texts Lee sent to then-chief of staff Mark Meadows shows that Lee thought that only a constitutional process could challenge the results of the election, and he hoped some state legislatures would submit competing slates of electors “pursuant to state law.” In the end, Lee saw that Trump did not have the evidence on his side, and there was no action by state legislatures. Lee became concerned by the dead-enders who, without compelling evidence, still wanted to overturn the results, and he voted to certify Joe Biden’s victory.
That didn’t stop McMullin. “You sought to urge the White House, that had lost an election, to find fake electors to overturn the will of the people,” McMullin said to Lee. “Sen. Lee, that was the most egregious betrayal of our nation’s constitution in its history by a U.S. senator, I believe, and it will be your legacy.” That seemed very nearly an accusation of treason, completely out of line with Lee’s actions, and the crowd booed. McMullin deserved it.............
Hannity calls that loose canon McMuffin
That dude doesn't know what the hell he believes in, which I say is a very dangerous person.. like the one we see in a "high place" politically speaking.. who once said you have to be a prostitute (give up any beliefs you have) in order to succeed...
Obviously, some people should not succeed..
