Here Are the 8 GOP Senators Staging a BOYCOTT To Hold Democrats Accountable in Congress


Finally.

In response to Trump’s guilty verdict, the GOP is taking action.

A group of 8 Senate Republicans have just announced plans to boycott all Congressional Democrat objectives.

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah is leading the boycott, announcing on X:

Along with Mike Lee, several other senators signed the letter address to the White House — 2 of which are allegedly in the running for Trump’s VP.

Here is a list of their names:

  • J.D. Vance
  • Tommy Tuberville
  • Eric Schmitt
  • Marsha Blackburn
  • Rick Scott
  • Roger Marshall
  • Marco Rubio

Politico has more:

Eight Senate Republicans, led by Mike Lee (R-Utah), are vowing to oppose major legislation and Biden nominees led by the Democratic Senate, following guilty verdicts for former President Donald Trump in New York.

The move could further bring legislative activity in the upper chamber to a slog. Specifically, the GOP lawmakers said they would oppose any increases to non-security related funding, Biden judicial and political nominations and “expedited consideration and passage” of Democratic legislation.

“We are unwilling to aid and abet this White House in its project to tear this country apart,” the senators wrote.

Signatories of the letter include Lee and fellow Republicans J.D. Vance (Ohio), Tommy Tuberville (Ala.), Eric Schmitt (Mo.), Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.), Rick Scott (Fla.), Roger Marshall (Kan.) and Marco Rubio (Fla.). Both Vance and Rubio are thought to be on Trump’s running mate short-list.

Many of these Republicans oppose most Biden-led priorities. However, in a chamber that frequently relies on unanimous consent to move with haste, the promised move could hinder quick Senate action.

A jury in New York found Trump guilty Thursday of 34 charges of falsifying business records to cover up a payoff to a porn star.

This move has the potential to actually hold Democrats accountable for once.

As long as they follow through, that is.

What do you think?

Will the charge against the Democrats work to hold them accountable?
