Skip to comments.Tammy Bruce: Republican Establishment Wants To Lose Senate Majority So Trump's Agenda Fails
Posted on 12/13/2017 3:25:05 PM PST by EdnaMode
Conservative commentator Tammy Bruce, in a discussion about Alabama Republican candidate for Senate Roy Moore, said the Republican establishment want the party to lose the majority in the Senate so the Trump agenda fails. Bruce cited Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL), who announced he did not vote for Moore, and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who donated to the Democratic candidate Doug Jones, as examples.
"This is a test for the president," Bruce said Tuesday on FOX News' Hannity. "I think what you've seen with Shelby going against it. Jeff Flake, giving money to this guy. I think the Republicans in the Senate want to lose the Senate. I think they want the president's agenda to fail and the only way to really achieve that is to suddenly become the minority."

That’s been obvious since Trump won the election.
So why ever vote Republican again?
Or send them money?
Zackly. This is not new news
When have they not wanted to be the minority? Look who they ran the previous two election prior to Trump.
She is 100% spot on.
I agree with her and so do several others, here, too.
They would willingly give up majority to sit back and let Trump...and the millions who voted for him....suffer/fail.
Give them their wish!
Get rid of McConnell.
I agree with Tammy.
And it’s all about illegal immigration and the billions behind it.
“They would willingly give up majority to sit back and let Trump...and the millions who voted for him....suffer/fail.”
This last year showed the Republicans won’t do it even with the majority and the White House.
Give em cake and they just toss it on the floor/ground. Pretty sick of them at this point.
If these people read FR, it wouldn’t take all of them 10+ months to come to the conclusions we’ve known for a very long time.
Same with the Fusion GPS & other info coming out. We’ve all been saying this for over a year & now the “brilliant” pundits are shocked at the revelations that have been obvious to all of us on FR.
Time for Trump to wade into the Senate. Completely pants them.
No clearer an indication that the Senate does not represent their constituents than the Moore election.
. . . And I don’t believe he lost either. I think he’s been expecting shenanigans. Assange fired the first shot today:
“I wonder how many illegal aliens and dead people voted for Jones?”
I never will again.
Last night I unsubscribed from the e-mail distribution list for Donald Trump.
I've got nothing against President Trump, but it's ludicrous to get e-mails through that list that are nothing more than RNC solicitations.

Let them raise their own damn money by mowing lawns and having car washes.
All but a handful of Republicans in Congress, if that many, have sold out to the Deep State. That’s the reality. McConnell, Ryan, and McCain serve their globalist masters, and not their constituents who elected them. This can’t continue. Ryan and McConnell need to be exposed for their misdeeds. There’s a mountain of dirt on both of them.
“So why ever vote Republican again?”
Trump is a Republican. Is there something you would like to share with the group, Mr Hillary voter?
On the specific title.
They don’t want to lose it but are willing to if it it not on their terms.
They did not want Mo Brooks, did not want Roy Moore and were willing not only to lose the seat but to sabotage those candidates. This is Rove, McConnell, Priebus, etc...
