This major Republican sealed their fate by betraying Trump on an impeachment double cross
Donald Trump is in big trouble.
Just as he heads into the end game of the impeachment witch hunt, the President is facing trouble within his own party.
And now this major Republican sealed their fate by betraying Trump on an impeachment double cross.
Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp owes his career to Donald Trump.
Trump endorsed Kemp in the Republican primary when Kemp was a long shot candidate and then Kemp only won the general election because of President Trump’s furious campaigning.
But Kemp has no sense of loyalty.
With Georgia RINO Senator Johnny Isaaskson retiring, Kemp is set to replace him with Never-Trump Mitt Romney loyalist and women’s professional basketball team owner Kelly Loeffler.
Kemp defied President Trump who urged him to appoint conservative Congressman Doug Collins to the seat.
The President’s allies were furious with Kemp’s betrayal and some even called for Kemp to face a pro-Trump primary challenge when he runs for re-election in 2022.
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz – who is one of President Trump’s strongest supporters – went so far as to call the decision to appoint Loeffler Kemp’s ‘political funeral.’

Loeffler donated $750,000 to Mitt Romney’s 2012 Presidential campaign.
But in 2016 Loeffler basically tried to elect Hillary Clinton by sitting on her hands and refusing to donate to President Trump’s campaign.
Loeffler only made a contribution to Trump’s 2020 campaign when it became clear she was Kemp’s choice and her Never-Trump background could invite a challenge in the November “jungle primary” where the top two finishers regardless of party advance to a runoff if no one candidate clears 50 percent of the vote.
Kemp is also installing a Mitt Romney-style RINO clone in the Senate just as the chamber will face an impeachment trial.
Loeffler’s Never-Trump past makes her a prime target to vote to convict the President on the Democrats partisan articles of impeachment.
