Jeff Flake just won’t take no for an answer. He was rejected by the people of Arizona so badly that he didn’t even bother to run again and face certain humiliating defeat.
He deserved it to be fair as he enraged both sides of the aisle with his phony outrage and wishy-washy nature. This guy gives flip-floppers like John Kerry a bad name.
Say what you mean and do what you say is the rule, but not Jeff Flake. He waffled and huffed and puffed and blew his own darn house down with his antics and will soon be unemployed.
For sure he thinks he should be president and will probably try to run in 2020, and when that fails you will see him in some swampy lobbying shop raking in the dough.
If they will have him that is because he is not making any friends in Washington with his antics and without those friends in high places, lobbyists won’t pay you a dime.
Thankfully, Utah Senator Mike Lee was not going to put up with any more Jeff Flake showboating and struck a lethal blow to his latest ploy to get Trump.
From The Hill: Legislation protecting special counsel Robert Mueller was blocked on Wednesday for a second time in the past month.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), joined by Sens. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), tried to get consent to schedule the long-stalled legislation for a vote.
Flake questioned why his colleagues weren’t “up in arms” after a string of tweets from President Trump bashing Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 election.
“With the president tweeting on a regular basis, a daily basis, that the special counsel is conflicted, that he is leading so-called 12 angry Democrats and demeaning and ridiculing him in every way, to be so sanguine about the chances of him being fired is folly for us,” Flake said.
Trump in a tweet hours before Flake’s request blasted Mueller’s probe into Russian election interference and possible collusion between the president’s campaign and Moscow as the “angry Mueller gang of Dems” and exclaimed that it is “our Joseph McCarthy era.”
But GOP Sen. Mike Lee (Utah) objected to voting on the legislation, arguing the bill had constitutional issues.
“As Justice Scalia explains, we cannot convert an office like this one … without creating a de facto fourth branch of government fundamentally undermining the principles of the separation of powers that is so core to our liberty,” Lee said.
