The unity that we see today in the Republican Party is certainly something to behold, and President Donald Trump has spent much of the last few weeks touting this cohesiveness.
The impeachment of Trump has seemingly galvanized the GOP – something that has Democrats accusing their counterparts on the right of being bootlickers and sycophants of the Presidents. These attacks seem to only bolster the togetherness that the right is exuding.
There are some cracks beginning to appear, however, and the latest comes to us from America’s last frontier.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said Tuesday that she was “disturbed” to hear that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) promised President Donald Trump that they would coordinate on the upcoming Senate impeachment trial.
McConnell recently said that there would be “total coordination” between the Senate and White House on the upcoming Senate impeachment trial; this disturbed the Alaska Republican.
She said, “And in fairness, when I heard that I was disturbed. To me, it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense, and so I heard what leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process.”
Furthermore, Murkowski has yet to indicate how she will vote on the conviction of Trump in the Senate, opting to reserve her judgment until the higher chamber’s trial has concluded.
