Donald Trump is fighting to win a second term, but in Washington his allies in the Republican Party are failing him.
This could have catastrophic consequences for November.
Now one Republican just admitted defeat in a fight that will make Trump furious.
Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson is the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee.
Johnson previously announced his committee would investigate Joe Biden’s corruption in the Ukraine with a focus on Hunter Biden and his shady dealings with Burisma.
Democrats howled that this was “political” even though in the House of Representatives Democrats routinely harass Donald Trump under the guise of “oversight.”
But after Johnson’s announcement nothing happened.
In an interview with center right talk show host Hugh Hewitt, Johnson revealed that Republicans on the committee were blocking him from subpoenaing Hunter Biden and other Deep State figures like James Comey and Jim Clapper.
“Well first of all, I need approval of my committee members, and it was tough enough getting the subpoenas on Blue Star Strategies, and then the others with the authority I’ve got so. Also, Lindsey Graham has been given the assignment by Leader [Mitch] McConnell to really investigate that portion of the corruption, and he’s a chairman of the Judiciary Committee, so we do have some kind of lines of jurisdiction in terms of what you’re you’re trying to do,” Johnson began.
Hewitt pressed Johnson on why he had just subpoenaed documents and not witnesses.
“Well, if I lose one I lose the vote,” Johnson responded.
Hewitt spoke for millions of Trump supporters and demanded Johnson answer why the FBI, CIA and other intelligence community agencies could stage a coup against President Trump and Senate Republicans would not hold the conspirators accountable.
Johnson responded that squishy Republicans on the committee caved to the Democrats’ complaints that investigating the Deep State and Joe Biden’s corruption was “political.
“We had a number of my committee members who were highly concerned about how this looks politically,” Johnson stammered.
At that point Hewitt demanded Johnson reveal which Republicans were blocking subpoenas that could expose the Deep State plotters so voters can throw them out of office.
Johnson declined to name names.
“Hugh, I’m just not going to be naming names that way,” Johnson responded.
There is one obvious answer as to which Republican is sabotaging Johnson’s investigation.
Mitt Romney sits on the Homeland Security Committee and it is very likely that Romney is withholding his vote.
Romney does not believe in attacking or investigating Democrats.
One reason Romney is not President is because of his refusal to attack Barack Obama in the 2012 campaign.
And since Donald Trump became President Mitt Romney did everything in his power to undo the 2016 election and remove Trump from office.
Now that sabotage extends to protecting the criminal conspirators that fabricated a conspiracy theory about Russian collusion to try and bring down the President.
