"The Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday approved a bill that would prevent President Trump from firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a largely symbolic move that is unlikely to go any further in Congress.
Four Republicans — Iowa’s Chuck Grassley, North Carolina’s Thom Tillis, South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham, and Arizona’s Jeff Flake — joined all ten Democrats to approve the bill by a 14–7 vote. But that is the last vote it will get if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell keeps his pledge to not bring it before the full Senate.
Last week, McConnell said the bill would not be heard on the Senate floor because it is “unnecessary” since there is “no indication” Trump is angling to fire Mueller. That is, of course, not true, and Trump provided a reminder Thursday morning during a rant on Fox & Friends in which he said he won’t interfere with the Russia probe, for now."
As a result, members, we need your help. We need to let them know we are not happy about it. We have ready made tweets, you know the drill, to let McConnell and the senate know that we are unhappy about this. There are over 500 bills stuck in the senate that they cannot get through and they pass this disgusting legislation.
Also, President Trump called on Montana's Sen. Jon Tester to resign over the Democrat's role in surfacing unproven misconduct allegations that prompted the president's pick to run the Department of Veterans Affairs, Ronny Jackson, to withdraw his name Thursday. Mr. Trump said Tester — who faces a tough election in November in a state where Mr. Trump's approval rating is among the highest — "should resign."
Tester said he had compiled accusations against Jackson based on more than 20 current and former military members. The allegations included excessive drinking on the job and improperly dispensing medications.
"Allegations made by Senator Jon Tester against Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson are proving false," Mr. Trump tweeted Saturday. "The Secret Service is unable to confirm (in fact they deny) any of the phony Democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful Jackson family. Tester should resign.
Also want to remind members about how important the upcoming elections are going to be. Trump stated in his speech yesterday, "we need to win the house." He told the crowd not to get complacent even though the House and the Senate are currently Republican controlled. In his words, "We cannot be complacent-we gotta go out and we gotta fight like hell and we gotta win the House and we gotta win the Senate."
Please get out and vote yourself, take someone, organize rides, have voting parties or volunteer locally to get the vote out.
And, help us help this process by going to thenewmovement.org page and clicking on the voting picture and tweet like there is no tomorrow, because there is no tomorrow if do not secure the House and the Senate. Remember these are the primaries right now, but we have to set a standard to get out and vote. Once the midterms hit, WE HAVE TO KEEP THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE.
Thank you in advance for all of your help!!!! #MAGA #KAG #keepredstatesred #turnbluestatesred.
