WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

WHATS NEXT?

>> WELL, I MEAN, THE NUMBER IS

SO SIGNIFICANT, YOU HAVE 11

REPUBLICANS WILLING TO REMOVE

MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE FROM HER

COMMITTEES, YOU KNOW, DESPITE

HER CALLS FOR VIOLENCE, ET

CETERA.

THE NIGHT BEFORE, 61 REPUBLICANS

VOTE TO DO REMOVE LIZ CHENEY FOR

TAKING A PRINCIPLED STAND ON

IMPEACHMENT.

YOU KNOW, I AM REALLY STRUCK BY

THE POLITICAL MALPRACTICE BY

KEVIN McCARTHY WHO HAS MANAGED

TO ELEVATE MARJORIE TAYLOR

GREENE AS THE FACE OF THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY.

IF HE HAD ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER

OF POLITICAL HYGIENE,

REPUBLICANS COULD HAVE TAKEN

THIS ON THEIR OWN.

YOU REMEMBER, IT WAS JUST TWO

YEARS AGO THAT REPUBLICANS

STRIPPED STEVE KING OF HIS SEATS

ON THE JUDICIARY AND AGRICULTURE

COMMITTEES BECAUSE OF BIGOTED

COMMENTS HE MADE.

FLASH FORWARD, FLONL DO THEY NOT

DO TO MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE

WHAT THEY DID TO STEVE KING, BUT

THEY ALLOWED THIS VOTE WHERE 199

REPUBLICANS NOW ARE ON RECORD

SAY, YEAH, WERE OKAY WITH THIS

PERSON BEING OUR PARTYS

REPRESENTATIVE.

LOOK, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THE

REPUBLICANS COULD HAVE DONE

THEMSELVES.

THEY COULD HAVE CLEANED HOUSE.

A LOT OF THESE REPUBLICANS WILL

GO BACK TO THE DISTRICT SAYING

WE DIDNT WANT TO SET A

PRECEDENT.

THE QUESTION THAT SHOULD BE

ASKED, WHY DIDNT YOU FIX IT YOURSELF?

THIS HAS JUST BACKFIRED ON THEM

SO PREDICTABLY.

SHES JUST RUBBING IT IN THEIR

FACES, AND REPUBLICANS COULD

HAVE SENT THE MESSAGE THAT THIS

IS NOT WHO WE ARE, BUT INSTEAD

LAST NIGHT, BECAUSE OF THAT VOTE

AND THE UNWILLINGNESS FOR KEVIN

McCARTHY TO PULL THE TRIGGER,

BECAUSE OF THAT VOTE, THEYRE

SAYING, YEAH, MARJORIE TAYLOR

GREENE IS A MEMBER IN GOOD

STANDING OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY.

REMEMBER THAT WHEN EACH OF THOSE

199 REPUBLICANS ARE ON THE

BALLOT NEXT YEAR.

>> I WANT TO READ YOU SOMETHING

THAT CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN

SENATOR KEVIN CRAMER WROTE IN AN

OP-ED -- WHAT HER REPUGNANT

COMMENTS CAN TEACH US ALL,

GREENES COMMENTS HAVE BEEN

CHARACTERIZED AS FAR RIGHT.

THEYRE NOT.

THEYRE NOT BASED ON AN

EXTREMELY CONSERVATIVE IDEOLOGY.

THEYRE HORRIFYING AND

COMPLETELY UNTETHERED TO

REALITY.

CONGRESSWOMAN GREENES REMARKS

ARE NOT CONSERVATIVE AND

ALLOWING THEM TO STAND WITHOUT

CONSEQUENCE IS UNACCEPTABLE.

THE PEOPLE OF GEORGIA SHOULD

CLOSELY CONSIDER WHETHER SHE

SHOULD CONTINUE REPRESENTING

THEM.

THEY COMMENTS AND THE

CONTROVERSY OFFER A RARE MOMENT

WHEN ANGER IS JUSTIFIED AND

ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN.

THATS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE.

I UNDERSTAND WHAT HES TRYING TO

SAY HERE, CHARLIE, BUT I HAVE TO

SAY, AS SOMEBODY WHO WORKED IN

REPUBLICAN POLITICS MY WHOLE

LIFE, THE LEFT WAS RIGHT ABOUT

EVERYTHING.

IM PART OF IT.

IM NOT BLAMING ANYBODY.

THE LEFT, WHICH HAS BEEN

COVERED -- AND PEOPLE TRIED TO

BRAND THEM AS THE RADICAL LEFT,

THEYVE BEEN RIGHT ABOUT

ANYTHING.

ANY ATTEMPT TO SAY THERE WERE

TWO SIDES HERE IS DEAD WRONG.

THE REPUBLICANS IS GREEN-LIT THE

CONSPIRACY THEORISTS IN THEIR

RANK BY A VOTE OF 199-11, END OF

STORY.

>> THE LARGER PICTURE HERE,

THOUGH, IF YOURE UPSET ABOUT

BIGOTRY AND CONSPIRACY THEORIES,

HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE FACT THAT

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, INCLUDING

SENATOR CRAMER, SUPPORTED

DONALD TRUMP, AND HE WAS THE

CONSPIRACY THEORIST IN CHIEF.

>> AND PROBABLY WILL NEXT WEEK.

>> THATS RIGHT.

AS WERE TALKING HERE RIGHT NOW,

IT IS LESS THAN A MONTH SINCE A

CONSPIRACY THEORY AND A LIE LED

TO THE INSURRECTION AT THE

CAPITOL.

DONALD TRUMPS LIE, WHICH HAD

BEEN TOLERATED AND RATIONALIZED

FOR ALL OF THOSE YEARS RESULTED

IN WHAT HAMMOND ON JANUARY 6th.

THEY ARE NOT HARMLESS.

THE FAILURE OF REPUBLICANS TO

DRAW A LINE, TO PUSH BACK, YOU

KNOW, CAME HOME TO ROOST, AND

YET THEY HAVE LEARNED ABSOLUTELY

NOTHING FROM IT.

BUT IF I CAN PUSH BACK HERE A

BIT.

SOME REPUBLICANS, MAYBE ITS TO

SAY, LOOK, WE ARE NOT ALL

MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE.

THERE WERE AT LEAST TEN WHO

VOLED TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT

TRUMP, IF THERES ANY HOPE FOR

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AT ALL, AND

IM VERY, VERY SKEPTICAL ABOUT

THAT, ITS GOING TO BE PEOPLE

LIE BEN SASSE DOING THAT VIDEO,

SPEAKING TO HIS CONSTITUENTS AND

SAYING, LOOK, WE CANT DO THIS.

WE CANT GO FOR THE CRAZY.

WE CANT BECOME A CULT OF

PENALTY.

PERSONALITY.

THE COUNTRY NEEDS TO HEAR FROM

OTHER REPUBLICANS SAYING, OKAY,

THATS NOT WHAT WE SIGNED UP

FOR, THATS NOT WHO WE ARE.

UNFORTUNATELY, BECAUSE OF THE

THAT VOTE LAST NIGHT, THATS A

HARD CASE TO MAKE, BECAUSE

THATS WHO THEY WERE LAST NIGHT.

>> LET ME PUSH RIGHT BACK AT YOU

ON THIS POINT.

I LOVE WHAT BEN SASSE SAID, BUT

WHY DIDNT HE RALLY MITCH

McCONNELL TO HIS CAUSE TWO YEARS

AGO?

ITS TOO LITTLE TOO LATE.

HE ENACTED SOME OF THE MOST

CRUEL AND LEAST CONSERVATIVE

POLICIES ORB COUNTRY HAS EVER

SEEN, AND THOSE PEOPLE LIKE BEN

SASSE, CHRIS CHRISTIE, RUSHING

TO DECONTAMINATE THEMSELVES,

WHERE WERE THEY?

THEY COULD HAVE STOPPED HIM.

IF MITCH McCONNELL SAID I WILL

NOT CONFIRM ANOTHER JUDGE UNTIL

YOU STOP THE B.S. -- THERE ARE

SO MANY OFF-RAMPS, AND THEY TOOK

NONE OF THEM.

>> BEN SASSE BROKE OUR HEARTS

MANY TIMES.

HE WENT INTO HIDING BEFORE HE

GOT REELECTED.

BUT YOU KNOW, HERES THE THING,

NICOLLE.

RIGHT NOW, IN ORDER TO SAVE THIS

COUNTRY, WE ARE GOING TO NEED

PEOPLE TO SEE THE LIGHT.

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO WELCOME

PEOPLE WHO IN FACT ARE LATE TO

THE TABLE, BECAUSE --

>> I HEAR YOU.

>> LOOK, NEXT WEEK WE WANT TO

HAVE SENATORS WHO LOOK AT THE

EVIDENCE AND WILL GO, YOU KNOW

WHAT?

I MADE A MISTAKE BY GOING ALONG

WITH THIS GUY.

I HAVE CHANGED MY MIND.

YOU KNOW, WE OUGHT TO SAY,

WELCOME TO THE TEAM OF PUTTING

COUNTRY OVER PARTY, AS OPPOSED

TO SAYING ITS TOO LATE, WHO

CARES WHAT YOU THINK?

THATS THEIR CALCULATION.

THEIR CALCULATION IS YOU COULD

DO THE RIGHT THING AND ILL BET

BEATEN UP.

BEN SASSE COULD HAVE DONE MORE,

SO COULD A LOT OF PEOPLE, BUT

RIGHT NOW GOING FORWARD, WE NEED

EVERY PRINCIPLED VOICE SAYING

THE BIGOTRY, THE CONSPIRACY

THEORIES, THE CRAZY, WE NEED TO

DRAW A LINE AND REJECT IT.
