Sen. Blackburn Defends Trump, Calls House Democrats “Sore Losers”

Appearing on Fox News, Marsha Blackburn defended
Trump and called House Democrats “sore losers.” They lost in 2016, Mueller turned into a big
nothingburger and now, ZERO evidence of a quid pro quo. Talk about sore losers. cc: @HouseDemocrats In a subsequent tweet, Blackburn says “I’ve
got a message for @TheDemocrats — Americans aren’t blind to your obstructionist tactics.” Blackburn also defended the contents of Trump’s
controversial call with Ukranian President Zelensky in a phone call with reporters. Leaf Chronicle reports U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn
said Thursday morning she has not yet read the whistleblower’s complaint that prompted
House Democrats this week to launch an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, but
she does not believe the president asked for any improper favor from the Ukrainian government
to interfere with the 2020 election. On a phone call with reporters Thursday morning,
Blackburn minimized the complaint, a document in which an unidentified whistleblower outlined
concerns over a phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky in July. Blackburn noted she understood the whistleblower
“did not hear the phone call.” The whistleblower report was declassified
earlier in the morning, though the White House released a transcript of the July 25 call
on Wednesday, the same day Blackburn spoke on the Senate floor and referred to Democrats’
impeachment attempt as a “breathless revenge scheme.” “If they move forward with it, they are
going to do this at their own risk of alienating a lot of America,” Blackburn said Thursday,
referencing polls from recent months that showed a majority of Americans did not support
impeachment at the time. “Based on the transcript that was released
yesterday, it seems that the House Democrats might have jumped the gun on this one.” “There is nothing in the report that is
an impeachable offense, in the transcript of that phone call,” she said. “When you
look at the transcript and you read through that, there is not anything in the transcript
that is a quid pro quo.”
