Never-Trumper Jeff Flake was just embarrassed on the Senate floor for everyone to see
Jeff Flake is auditioning for his post-Senate career as a fake Republican MSNBC analyst.
He joined with Democrats to push a bill to keep the Mueller witch hunt going.
But he was just made a fool on the Senate floor.
Flake tried to bend the rules to garner a vote on the Robert Mueller protection bill.
But conservative Utah Senator Mike Lee shot him down.
Fox News reports:
Outgoing Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake joined with several Democrats on Wednesday in a failed attempt to force a vote on legislation to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller from inappropriate removal or political pressure.
Flake, along with Delaware Democratic Sen. Chris Coons and New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker, tried to use a parliamentary maneuver to pave the way for a vote on the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act.
Flake asked for unanimous consent to vote on the bill, but Utah Sen. Mike Lee objected, blocking the effort.
The three lawmakers expressed concern over comments made by President Trump, who has called the Mueller probe a “phony witch hunt,” as well as Trump’s ousting of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Flake is trying to hold the Senate hostage.
He has threatened to block all of President Trump’s judicial nominees during the lame duck session until the Mueller protection bill is voted on.
Meanwhile, as reported on Renewed Right, Mueller’s investigation has been exposed for what it is: a politically motivated hit job.
And Jeff Flake is simply playing into the Democrats’ hands.
