Jeff Flake Writes Op-Ed Calling For ‘Country Over Party’ During Impeachment Trial | Hardball | MSNBC 1


In a Washington Post Op-Ed, Former Senator Jeff Flake addressed his old Republican colleagues, saying, "President Trump is on trial. But in a very real sense, so are you. And so is the political party to which we belong." He warns that, "the danger of an untruthful president is compounded when the coequal branch follows that president off the cliff, into the abyss of unreality and untruth… If there ever was a time to put country over party, it is now. And by putting country over party, you might just save the Grand Old Party before it’s too late." Aired on 12/20/19.

    Wow, that was worthy, and that is something that should have happened or been said a long time ago.

  2. First Christianity Today, and now Flake. First a trickle, then a flood. Remember when it was just one whistleblower?

  3. Republicans backstab orange Caligula when they leave office and not a minute before. Grow a spine, Jeff Snowflake.

    • When you are a member of the Boys club there is a Bro Code that if you don’t tow the party line you will get no GOP money.

  4. Turn that Red Senate Blue then present the articles for a fair trial in late Feb..

  5. Why didn’t Flake stay in the Senate, then? Or should ask, How would Flake be any better than his replacement, Senator McSally? Cowards both, when it’s time to stand up to Trump.

  6. We always lose the good guys.

    Trump is impeached.
    I’m happy.

  8. Jeff flake is a stand up guy him is real Republicans country over party do the right thing and listen to the witness and see the evidence for what it is the President broke the law

  9. Republicans are responsible for the harm that they allow the Orange Dotard Nazi-lover to do to the country and the world.

  10. The Republican Party is dead.

      Calling the kettle black much? The Republican Party is more unified than its been for decades, whereas the Democratic Party has become balkanized with their irrational hatred for Trump as the only glue holding them together.

    • Erik Olivecrona yes!! they are together like a… mafia because they are not defending tRump but, their own behind; they are as dirty as the little man at the W.H.

      @Erik Olivecrona LMAO… you clowns are hilarious. The Republican party has withered down to being a tiny 24% of the total electorate. Look it up. Four entire states have flipped from red to blue _in just the past year._ And if Texas flips to blue soon… as is expected… then the Republicans will never, ever get into the White House again. The GOP is DEAD.

      Tessmage Tessera You will get your reality check in 2020. 😉

  11. Jeff Flake can criticize his fellow Republicans all he wants as he did when he was still in office, but let’s not forget, Jeff Flake’s criticism of Trump is empty as he, Flake, voted with Trump and the rest of Republicans when he was still a Senator.

  12. Thank you for stating the truth Flake, but you will still be judged for your complicity and cowardice.

  13. It’s clear that the Republican party died with John McCain. He was the last sitting Republican on Capitol Hill to stand up to Traitor Trump and Moscow Mitch. The GOP has been replaced with the dogmatic and slavish cult known as Trumpism.

  14. Trump is a disgrace and embarrassment

    Oh yeah..? And where was Jeff Flake during the Kavanaugh hearing..?

  17. Democrats got their Congressmen walking away now. DT2Q2Q

  18. It’s pretty much to late for that Mr. Flake.

  19. Flaky will be removed by the people

  20. The people will help Trump drain the swamp in November. Say goodbye to Flake
