Another GOP traitor has emerged, a name you haven’t heard of yet, but will likely hear more about in the days and weeks to come.
Congressman Francis Rooney probably wouldn’t have his House seat if President Trump hadn’t stumped for him in 2018.
But backstabbers and traitors don’t care about loyalty and support, do they?
Rooney, who represents Florida’s 19th Congressional District, now claims that he’s “thinking about impeachment” after a botched press conference by WH chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, where he misspoke about so-called “quid pro quo” and later corrected his comments.
Apparently that’s not good enough for someone like Rooney, who is clearly just looking for a reason to take down Trump.
President Donald Trump gave an atta-boy to Republican Rep. Francis Rooney last year on the congressman’s home turf in swing state Florida.
“I love it when he defends me,” the president said then. He might feel differently now.
The second-term Republican said publicly Friday what others in his party are not, namely that acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney acknowledged a quid pro quo was at work when Trump held up U.S. aid to Ukraine in exchange for Kyiv’s investigation of Democrats and the 2016 elections. Mulvaney later claimed his comments had been misconstrued, but Rooney said he and other Republicans heard them clearly.
“He said there’s a quid pro quo,” Rooney said of Mulvaney during a telephone interview. “I just don’t think that the power and prestige of our country is supposed to be used for political things.”
Asked whether he thinks Trump’s conduct is impeachable, Rooney replied, “I’m still thinking about it.” [AP]
It’s time to contact Mr. Rooney and politely help him work though his “thinking” about impeachment. Let him know that we expect him to back our America First President 100% in public and behind closed doors.
