Flake tells Senate Republicans to ’put country over party’ in Senate trial

Former Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, in an op-ed for The Washington Times, called on current GOP senators to put ’country over party’ when President Trump’s impeachment trial begins. ’My simple test for all of us: What if President Barack Obama had engaged in precisely the same behavior?’, Flake wrote telling senators not to be ’complicit’.

If republicans impeached Obama over a presumption I’d be very disappointed with my party. I’d want them to investigate further until they find actual evidence or find nothing and I’d want them to use the proper channel of going to the SCOTUS to get more information. Democrats don’t give a shit about truth, they’ll do anything to cast Trump in a bad light.

I would be pissed if they impeached Obama, It was dumb when they impeached Clinton and it was an apuse of the houses power what they just did. I'd say impeached but they still haven't sent it over to the senate so technically he still hasn't been impeached

Obama literally and directly violated the Constitution on numerous occasions according to the Supreme Court themselves, engaged in wiretapping of journalists, and weaponized the IRS against his political opponents. Amongst many other things. The Republicans still never tried to impeach him even though he really, really deserved it.
