Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), who’s said he may vote this month to convict former President Trump on an article of impeachment, is pushing back against possible retaliation from the Nebraska Republican State Central Committee by warning that his party must choose between “conservatism and madness.”
Sasse on Thursday released a five-minute video responding to Republican officials back home who want to censure him at a Republican State Central Committee meeting on Feb. 13 because of his criticism of Trump.
The article goes on to state the following:
He warned that purging Trump skeptics from the GOP is “not only civic cancer for the nation [but] just terrible for our party.”
Sasse blamed Trump for the riot at the Capitol, and lashed out at the Nebraska State Republican leaders who are angry with him for not standing with Trump. “Now, many of you are hacked off that I condemned his lies that led to a riot. Let’s be clear: the anger in the state party has never been about me violating principle or abandoning conservative policy. I’m one of the most conservative voters in the senate. The anger has always simply been about me not bending the knee to one guy,” he declared defiantly.
He claimed that those upset with him are just “angry about life” and out of step with regular Nebraskans.
“I listen to Nebraskans every day and very few of them are as angry about life as some of the people on this committee. Not all of you, but a lot. Political addicts don’t represent most Nebraska conservatives,” he said.
