Never again believe Sens. Susan Collins, or Jeff Flake,  when they claim to be critics of Donald Trump or posture as “moderate” Republicans.

Never again let the media call them the “swing” voters in the Senate.

They made the right noises along the way, because they knew that was what they needed to do to protect their carefully cultivated image as moderates, as pragmatists, as reasonable Republicans.

“It appears to be a very thorough investigation,” Collins told reporters on Thursday. Flake told CNN that he agreed with Collins and that “we’ve seen no additional corroborating information” to support Ford’s testimony. This is the kind of brazen Trumpian dishonesty we have become accustomed to from the president of the United States — not from self-styled conservative critics of the president.

Wake me when you find anyone in the Senate who is not a lying corporate serving fraud. Wait until I have had a cup of coffee before telling me that one of our senators is honest or truthful.

Sorry Burl and Chuck,

your equalizing of all could not be true, ever.

And this "they are all equal" is harmful.

Somebody said "Despair is the biggest sin".

Having the Courage of our Convictions. Seems to be the issue. Flake is living up to his name, and who knows about Collins; I don't think she'll run again?

Sometimes it seems Trump has arranged a threat or a payoff to people who seem to be wavering. There were times when it seemed Obama had a gun to his head as well, like when the plane his wife and daughters were in had a shaky time landing. Seemed like at the time there was some gargantuan dispute going on about guns or something.

We're not just being bullied by provincial, greedy has-beens, there's a violent aspect to the kind of power they wield as well. They rig everything and pay people to demonstrate and then accuse the Left of the same thing.

All Trump's accusations are based on his own frailties and machinations. He has no brain it's obvious, but worse, no heart. None of them does. I can't believe there's a single woman in the party. What we all need to do is stop paying the IRS to support these criminals. We're not being represented, and that's the deal breaker as I understand it.

There is no true woman in their party.

The one with the heart.

I always thought Hillary just wanted to beat the boys at their own game.
