Chuck Todd drops a bombshell: ‘At least one’ GOP senator plans to endorse Hillary if Trump wins

Published

on

NBC host Chuck Todd reported on Tuesday that at least one sitting Republican U.S. Senator would likely endorse Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton if Donald Trump became the GOP nominee.

During MSNBC’s Super Tuesday election coverage, Republican strategist Nicole Wallace complained that the controversy over Trump’s refusal on Sunday to disavow the Ku Klux Klan had become a problem for maintaining GOP control of the Senate and House.

“This is now about the rest of the people that govern under the banner of the Republican Party,” she explained.

Todd said that he had heard “real speculation today from very informed people that at least one Republican Senate incumbent, if given a choice, might publicly endorse Hillary Clinton.”

“An incumbent senator, there’s at least one that I’ve heard that could end up doing that, making that choice,” Todd continued. “Not because they want to, but because they need to send that message.”

“Look, there’s a bunch of them running for re-election in blue states, okay. That’s what’s going on here, and on the day that the Republican front-runner might cement his lead.”

He is locked into a fierce and potentially explosive dispute with an array of forces within the administration to obtain the complaint, which was made through proper channels by an intelligence official last month to the community’s inspector general. Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson determined that the complaint was “credible” and “urgent,” and subsequent reporting from the Washington Post found that it concerns a “promise” made by Trump in communication with a foreign leader.

Longtime GOP strategist explains why his party is getting crushed in the war of ideas

Published

on

Republican strategist Stuart Stevens on Wednesday warned the GOP that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might not be a pushover candidate against President Donald Trump in 2020.

Writing on Twitter, Stevens admitted that he had "no idea" if Warren would beat Trump next year, but he did say that "Trump and supporters are destroying [the] credibility of any center-right argument" thanks to Trump's "corrupt and unstable" governance.

When one of Stevens' followers said that Warren would not be able to fulfill her promises just by taxing the wealthy, he countered that this idea is still more popular than anything Republicans are championing.

The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is storing more than one million tonnes of contaminated water in tanks at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Plant that was wrecked by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
