Trump targets 25 ‘RINO’s’ in Congress who admit he lost election

President Trump wants to name and shame the two dozen-plus members of Congress who say he lost the election.

Branding the lawmakers “RINO’s,” or Republicans in name only, Trump asked for a list of the malcontents who told the Washington Post that they accept that President-elect Joe Biden won last month’s contest.

“Wow! I am surprised there are so many,” Trump tweeted. “We have just begun to fight.”

Even though Trump derided the Post as “Fake News,” he apparently takes its reporting at face value: “Please send me a list of the 25 RINOS,” he wrote.

25, wow! I am surprised there are so many. We have just begun to fight. Please send me a list of the 25 RINOS. I read the Fake News Washington Post as little as possible! https://t.co/cEBM0bYuQ9— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 5, 2020

The Post asked all 249 GOP representatives and senators whether they accept that Biden won. Shockingly only 25 accepted the results, even though almost all states have certified the results. The number rose to 26 later Saturday.

Among those who accept reality are sometime Trump critics like Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.). There are also seven lawmakers who are retiring, making them less susceptible to backlash from Trump or his loyal army of #MAGA supporters.

Two hardline Trump supporters, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), responded by saying they think Trump won.

The majority feigned ignorance about the results of the election or falsely claimed it remains undecided.

Trump has been remarkably successful in getting Republicans to toe the line as he seeks to deny the reality of Biden’s substantial victory.

Biden won states with 306 electoral votes, easily more than the 270 needed. He leads Trump by more than 7 million in the popular vote.

Trump has lost dozens of court cases challenging the results in various states. The results have now been certified by almost all the states ahead of the meeting of the Electoral College on Dec.14.

Seven Republican rebels who voted to convict feel Trumpists’ fury

The seven Republican senators who broke ranks by voting to convict former president Donald Trump at his impeachment trial faced immediate hostility and criticism from fellow conservatives revealing the potentially high cost of opposing Trumpism within the party.

These senators – North Carolina’s Richard Burr, Louisiana’s Bill Cassidy, Maine’s Susan Collins, Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, Utah’s Mitt Romney, Nebraska’s Ben Sasse, and Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey – brought the total number of guilty votes to 57. That was not nearly enough to secure a conviction, but easily enough to ensure instant attack from fellow Republicans and others on the right.

The reaction was a powerful illustration of the strength of Trump’s grip on the Republican party even though he is out of office.

“Let’s impeach RINOs from the Republican Party!!!” Trump’s son and conservative favorite Donald Trump Jr said on Twitter, using the insulting acronym for Republicans In Name Only.

The instant backlash came from powerful rightwing media figures also.

Conservative Fox News host Laura Ingraham commented: “Prediction: none of the Republicans who voted in the affirmative today will speak at the 2024 GOP convention.”Advertisementhttps://56af1d2a153d69860641ac97358d8c57.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

For Cassidy, there was almost instant retribution in his own state. Jeff Landry, the Republican attorney general of Louisiana, tweeted: “Senator Bill Cassidy’s vote is extremely disappointing.”

The local party agreed and its executive committee unanimously voted to censure Cassidy for his vote. “We condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the vote today by Sen. Cassidy to convict former President Trump. Fortunately, clearer heads prevailed and President Trump has been acquitted of the impeachment charge filed against him,” the Republican party of Louisiana similarly said in a statement.

Cassidy was not alone, as Burr’s state party in North Carolina also went immediately on the attack.

Michael Whatley, North Carolina Republican party chair, condemned his colleague in a statement, saying: “North Carolina Republicans sent Senator Burr to the United States Senate to uphold the Constitution and his vote today to convict in a trial that he declared unconstitutional is shocking and disappointing.”

Even Republicans who voted to acquit Trump were not necessarily spared from conservative backlash, including the Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell. The lawmaker said that he voted to acquit over a jurisdictional issue and because Trump was no longer in office, McConnell didn’t think impeachment was in its purview.

However, McConnell also firmly criticized Trump following the acquittal, saying: “There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically, and morally, responsible for provoking the events of the day” and that he’s “still liable for everything he did while he’s in office. He didn’t get away with anything yet.”
