Al Franken’s career is now a pawn by fanatical Democrats to get President Trump

Senator Al Franken may need to keep his resume handy in case the Democrat elites see a way to sacrifice him in order to pursue President Donald Trump. If there is blood in the water, it will attract swift action to the scene. Franken is not in the best of positions because the Democrat party can easily replace him and his vote. Here is how that works.

As Written By Thomas Lifson for the American Thinker:

That sinking feeling Al Franken is experiencing is the realization that his career is now a pawn in the fanatical efforts of Democrats to get President Trump out of office.  The Democrats would not lose his seat, since Minnesota’s Governor Mark Dayton can be expected to appoint a Democrat to serve out his term.  Franken is not well liked for reasons that should be self-evident: he is as big a jerk in regular life, as the infamous picture of him and Ms. Tweeden on the C17 would seem to indicate.

The logical steps for getting Trump  are clear.

Step one: Establish that sexual harassment before taking office is sufficient grounds to remove someone from office.  This is the necessary predicate.  Franken’s departure from office will establish the purported sincerity of the Democrats in establishing this brand-new principle.  As a number of observers point out, nobody has ever been thrown out of the Senate for actions prior to taking office.

Step two: Apply this doctrine to Roy Moore if he should win the Senate seat for which he running.  If he loses, triumphantly announce that even the reddest of red states agrees that previous misbehavior is dispositive in removing an incumbent.

Step three: Throw Bill Clinton under the bus.  Rend garments, pull hair out, and otherwise demonstrate what looks like sincere regret that Bill Clinton remained in office thanks to rock-solid Democrat solidarity, now that there is no incumbency to protect.  Hillary, who has become a drag on the party, is thus to be intimidated into quietly caring for her……


Al Franken’s career is collateral damage for the Dems on the way to getting Trump
