GOP senators worried about T not going peacefully

From HuffPost:

Carl Bernstein Says GOP Senators Weighing Action If Trump Won’t Step Down

They’re “terribly concerned about what they regard as the president’s unthinkable acts to undermine the electoral process,” the famed Watergate journalist said.

Snip...

Trump has refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses, and has repeatedly tried to undermine the integrity of the electoral process by claiming the only way he can lose is if the vote is rigged.

As many as 10 GOP senators are “talking with each other about how to restrain what they regard as an out-of-control” president who is “determined to do anything to hold on to office regardless of its legality.” Bernstein told CNN’s Ana Cabrera without naming anyone involved.

They are “terribly, terribly concerned about what they regard as the president’s unconstitutional and unthinkable acts to undermine the electoral process,” Bernstein added, calling Trump’s aggressive grip on power a “scorched earth” strategy.


Sure they're concerned. They're concerned about their own images and their own jobs if they're seen as being part of that fucking mess. They don't give a shit about anything else.

1. They need to do what decent Republican Senators did in 1974.

Three of them, including Barry Goldwater of Arizona, went to Nixon on August 7, 1974 and told him that for the good of the country he needed to resign.

This year, a much larger delegation of Republican Senators need to go to Trump and tell him that he needs to accept the results of the election. Probably won't happen, because there may not be even one decent Republican Senator right now.

2. They've gotten exactly what they want out of him:

Judges, judges, and justices.

Now they are probably as happy to see him go as the rest of us.
I would not be surprised if the majority of them didn't even cast their vote for him.
