Ex-GOP lawmaker: Republicans hope Democrats take House in 2018 to save America from Trump
During an MSNBC panel discussion on the “unraveling” of President Donald Trump on Saturday morning, a former GOP member of the House said he is hearing from fellow Republicans that they hope the Democrats take control in the 2018 midterms to save America from President Donald Trump.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Ex-GOP House member Dave Jolly (FL) agreed with Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) that Trump has no understanding of his job.
“This is a commander-in-chief with no understanding or appreciation for national security, we know that,” Jolly began. “I do have great confidence in [Chief of Staff] John Kelly. He’s a very sober leader. a very experienced national security leader. I think he’s doing a good job trying to contain him.”
“If the moment comes where he cannot? Watch John Kelly, because the seriousness of this administration rests on how long John Kelly stays,” he added.
The ex-Congressman then dropped a bombshell.
“You know, in law there’s what’s called an angry withdrawal if a clients committing fraud in court, the attorney is required to leave,” Jolly explained. “If John Kelly leaves that’s significant. There are Republicans, not elected ones in Washington right now, beginning to question whether or not we would be a safer nation if Democrats took the house in 2018. Because Republicans are never going to do the job they need to do because of the political consequences they would face at home.”
