Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin called for the Republican Party she supported for decades to be defeated in light of a leaked recording in which Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) admits that keeping the GOP majority is the only way to preserve the Donald Trump presidency.
“If there is ever a better reason to get rid of Paul Ryan’s party, it’s this,” Rubin said on MSNBC. “They exercise no responsibility, it’s always about the party, it’s always about protecting the president and never about doing their constitutional obligation.”
“So my takeaway from this [is] … these people really are irredeemable, and if you want a constitutional check on the president of the United States, you’re doing to have to change parties,” she added.
Nunes said in the tape that “if [Attorney General Jeff] Sessions won’t unrecuse and [special counsel Robert] Mueller won’t clear the president, we’re the only ones.”
