Republicans try to delay the 1/6 Fee vote for so long as they’ll. The vote will likely be a black eye and embarrassment when Senate Republicans vote in opposition to the creation of an impartial fee to research the January sixth assault. There’s a risk that the vote doesn’t occur till late on Friday night time throughout a vacation weekend when fewer Individuals would see the most recent GOP cover-up for Donald Trump.
This may come as a shock to Tubeville, however hundreds of thousands upon hundreds of thousands of Individuals will likely be engaged on Memorial Day. Not everybody has the day without work, so for him to be whining about having to do his job three days earlier than a vacation that hundreds of thousands will likely be working exhibits how out of contact the Republican Social gathering is.
There’s a simple repair to Tuberville’s downside. He can have on a regular basis that he needs to fish and golf just by resigning from the Senate.
Tuberville selected to run for Senate, and he can select to do the nation a favor and resign.
