Alexander among Republicans targeted by conservative group over Trump investigation

A conservative group called Republicans for the Rule of Law has launched a $1 million ad campaign urging GOP lawmakers to support an investigation into President Donald Trump’s efforts to persuade the Ukrainian president to investigate political rival Joe Biden’s son.

The ads running on TV and digital platforms are aimed at 20 Republican members around the country.

“This an abuse of power by the chief executive of our country. He won’t stop unless Republicans like you stand up and say that it’s wrong,” the ad’s narrator says. “Senator Alexander, your voice is critical. Stand up for the country and stand up for the rule of law.”

  • Stuart I. Anderson says:

    Is this organization “a conservative group” subject to the usual mainstream media definition of the term “conservative” meaning that they are no longer Trotskyists?

  • MARLE says:

    Rule of law applies MOST often when aimed, as a weapon, against the opposing party. It is no different than the issue of Deficit Spending and the Debt.

    When your own party is in violation of the principle…..silence is the Only strategy and the order of the day.

    • Correct. What matters is money and power, not niceties of “legal” and “illegal”. Donald Trump has never had to worry about breaking the law in his life, and he isn’t going to start now. His party is just fine with lawless behavior as long as they get re-elected.

      • Stuart I. Anderson says:

        Bill, I think his party is more concerned about the other party attempting to negate an election through endless costly investigations that have no results because, in fact, no law was broken. His party has noticed that left-wing parties around the world are all for democracy so long as the elections produce the results that the leftists favor. See what’s going on in the U.K. re: BREXIT.

  • Before the “investigation” begins, could we have some idea of the law(s) violated by the investigatee? These investigators are nothing more than “rino’s” who continually whine when life isn’t fait to them.

  • Benton Temple says:

    Trump needs to go and conservatives need to take the party back over from the conspiracy theorists-wing of the party that’s been running things since President Cheeto cam down that escalator in 2015.

    • Stuart I. Anderson says:

      When you say “back” what exactly do you mean? The Republican Party has always been broadly speaking a party that represents the Chamber of Commerce/Business Round Table etc. very well. Doing the bidding of big business is the primary concern of the leadership of the Party. That’s where the center of gravity of the Party lies. The Trumpidians are a evanescent manifestation who, after Trump, will soon be gone.

      Gaining control of the Party should be the 24/7 concern of conservatives but that can only come about through the consistent election of PROVEN solid conservative candidates in Republican primaries. It is to that end that I devote my time and financial resources.

    • West Tennessee Skeptic says:

      About conservatives (real conservatives) taking back the party, two thoughts: (1) Could not agree with you more, but (2) It ain’t gonna happen for a long time.

      All of Trump’s best accomplishments would have occurred under any Republican president with same party alignments in Congress. Long term damage to conservative cause from Trump is accumulating and my side may spend a generation out of power because of him. OTOH, between Trump and any Dem in the race, I want Trump to win. This is the stark reality, a dark somber plot.
