Okay, this is kind of significant.

And since Joe Manchin, among the least liberal Democrats of Congress, could be a thorn in the leadership’s side, it could be seismic.

The Anchorage Daily News:

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said Friday that Donald Trump should resign the presidency immediately and that if the Republican Party cannot separate itself from Trump, she isn’t certain she has a future with the party.

“I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused enough damage,” Murkowski said during a 17-minute interview from her small Capitol office, steps away from the Senate chambers that were invaded by pro-Trump rioters on Wednesday.

Well, she had a chance to make a stand when, you know, Democrats were trying to oust him over election cheating, but better late than never, I guess.

“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.

Thanks, Lisa. But, erm, we’ve known all this for years.

 

Let’s hope more members of the Craven Caucus will wake up to what’s really happening. On Wednesday we survived an insurrection — one incited and fully supported by the actual president of the United States.

That seems pretty significant in and of itself. And Murkowski is done f*#king around. More Republicans should — and must — join her.

  1. Mitch told his crew, step back behind the yellow line. He saw the train wreck coming, 10 miles up the tracks. And the greedy, overambitious, shit sucking, brown nosing, ass hats with 2024 stars in their eyes, just couldn’t help themselves.

    So they threw themselves on the epic pyre that is Donald Trump’s political career, and now the people who would have overthrown the election are faced with being seditionists and traitors. Build a political career on that Bucky.

    On the slimmest of chances they aren’t brought up on criminal charges (and trust me, if dark money backing sedition shows up in any of their bank accounts, they can will their hearts to Gawd, because America will take the rest), their political futures are finished. The Fat Lady is officially singing. They need to resign, and look for work in waste disposal.

  2. Murkowski Collins Lamar Alexander all said he learned his lesson so they wouldnt vote to impeach. This is on their heads (as well as all but Roney who refused to act in 2019 (After GOP said by trump nomination that what they stand for is racism, hatred, antisemitism, misogyny zenophobia, and, and, and, This is what they wanted. they cant be surprised that they got what they knew all aloing he was. an egotistical failure blowhard whohas all his life been willing to sabotage everything and anythign

  3. You were ALL warned by Chairman Schiff, so now F**k You. And that goes for ALL the white-supremacist F.B.I.,POLICE,FEDERAL AGENTS, INTELLIGENCE, REPUBLICANS and anyone else who wouldn’t listen to warnings. ESPECIALLY from Malcolm Nance on domestic terrorism. F**K You and shame on you. You all deserve prison or expulsion or get fired forever. THEY ARE ALL VILE LOSERS JUST LIKE THEIR GROTESQUE CULT LEADER.
