Republicans turn on “RINO traitors” after they voted to convict Trump

  • Seven GOP senators voted to convict former President Trump on the charge of  inciting insurrection during his second impeachment trial 
  • The senators have been branded ‘traitors’ by furious Trump loyalists, who are now pushing for them to resign or be primaried by other conservatives
  • On Saturday evening, the executive committee of the Louisiana GOP unanimously voted to censure Sen. Bill Cassidy for voting to convict Trump
  • On Twitter, other Republican senators who voted to convict Trump – including Mitt Romney – were subject to vile threats from members of their own party

Trump was ultimately acquitted 57- 43, with Democrats falling 10 votes short of the 67 needed to convict the former President of inciting insurrection.

Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy was one of the GOP senators who broke ranks with his party, declaring: ‘Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty.’

However, he has been quickly been rebuked by GOP officials in his home state for his scathing assessment of Trump.

The executive committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana unanimously voted on Saturday evening to censure Cassidy.

The group released a statement on Twitter which read: ‘We condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the vote today by Sen. Cassidy to convict former President Trump. Fortunately, clearer heads prevailed and President Trump has been acquitted of the impeachment charge filed against him.’

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
