"Senate Republicans for the first time see Trump’s scandal possibly costing them their majority."
Good perspective here. #ImpeachmentIsComing #MondayMotivation…
2-"Last week, McConnell showed independence from Trump by coming out publicly in support of continuing military aid to Ukraine. More important, he also pushed the White House to share the whistleblower complaint with Congress.
3-"And McConnell has to deal with a well-known Senate Republican daring to separate himself from Trump on the Ukraine scandal — Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah). Romney said he is “deeply troubled” to see reports of Trump pressuring the Ukrainian president to damage Biden.
4-"And he later told reporters: “I can’t imagine being in the Senate or in any other position of responsibility and looking around to see who’s with you. You stand for what you believe in.”
5-"Loss of the majority might prompt Republican senators to start their own version of the wave of retirements — 15 so far — that have hit House Republicans since Democrats claimed that majority in the 2018 midterms.
6-"Team Trump knows it has a problem. The president last week tweeted out a video of Romney’s sad, losing face on the night of the 2012 presidential election."..But Romney is not the only Republican willing to speak out.
7-"Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) — who was recently endorsed for reelection by Trump — is on the record as saying Republicans “ought not just circle the wagons.”..outside the Senate, Republican voices challenging Trump for the GOP nomination suddenly, thanks to impeachment,
8-"have a larger platform. Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, one of three Republicans challenging Trump for the GOP nomination, said Trump’s telephone call with the Ukrainian president amounted to “treason, pure and simple.”
9-"The shifting political dynamic among Republicans is a budding version of the sudden shift among moderate Democrats in the House that led Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to announce the start of impeachment..
10-"These politicians know how to read polls. And the polls are shifting in favor of impeachment, too." ~Juan Williams is a political analyst for FOX.
