Trump May Be Banned, But GOP Lawmakers Are Still Terrified of His Mean Tweets
On Wednesday afternoon, Republican congresspeople got the possibility to once again release judgement on Donald Trump. Previously this year, just 10 GOP home members voted to impeach Donald Trump. This time around, they were voting on whether there would be a commission to check out the lead up to the January sixth insurrection.
35 Republican congresspeople chose to choose the query. 175 chose to back the previous president. When inquired about the vote, GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger stated that much of his associates still reside in worry of Donald Trump.
Kinzinger applauded the members who elected a commission, stating, “I think it’s an easy vote. We need answers. We need to take ownership of what was done, what led to it. This was an attack on our democracy and an attack on the number 2, 3, 4 person in line of secession for the presidency. It was the right vote. I’m pleased by the number of my colleagues that voted so far. I wish it was significantly higher. But I think, given all of the people that came out against it, it’s a positive number.”

The Illinois Rep. likewise buffooned those who voted versus the examination. “I think fear plays a big role. It’s fear of a primary, fear of losing my election. Fear of, even though he’s not on Twitter, a Donald Trump Tweet, which is amazing to me that people still fear that because he doesn’t have access to that anymore”
Trump stays the single most effective force in Republican politics. And the majority of GOP legislators are still totally reluctant to speak up versus him.
