(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Do you remember the names of the five GOP members who voted in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump?
If you happen to have forgotten, I can refresh your memory: Tom Rice, John Katko, Fred Upton, Adam Kinzinger and Anthony Gonzalez.
And each and every one of them has paid a steep price for the betrayal of the president in which they participated. As the song goes, “regrets, I’ve had a few.”
According to a report from The Western Journal, Rice recently scored a big L — for “loss” — in a GOP primary race. None of the others are even bothering to seek re-election. Which is a good thing, because none of them would win after what they did to Trump.
What these folks failed to realize is that they would need Trump’s loyal base in order to win, and their actions sealed the deal for that not happening. There are consequences for actions, which is a basic lesson most of us learn during the course of childhood, but these five individuals must have missed class that day.
5 of the Republicans, who voted to impeach President Trump, won’t return to Congress:

“Kinzinger of Illinois has been perhaps the most defiant. Confronted by members of his own family critical of his vote against Trump in his second impeachment, Kinzinger said conservative churches had brainwashed them, The New York Times reported,” the WJ report said.
“After voting with Trump 90 percent of the time, Kinzinger took a hard position against him following the former president’s claims that the 2020 election was stolen,” the report continued.
Rice, hailing from South Carolina, was the first of the 10 members of the GOP who cast a vote in favor of the second impeachment that was booted from office by her constituents.
“Besides the four who decided not to run, the remaining five Republicans are Liz Cheney of Wyoming, Peter Meijer of Michigan, Jaime Herrera Beutler and Dan Newhouse, both of Washington, and David Valadao of California,” the WJ piece said. “Prior to being defeated by Trump-backed state Rep. Russell Fry, Rice told NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that Trump was ‘harmful’ to the Republican Party.”
At first, Rice wasn’t on board with the second impeachment, but was not happy with how Trump reacted to the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol, stating that he responded weakly and lacked “contrition” for what happened, according to reports from The Post and Courier.
“Katko, recognized as one of the most bipartisan House members, issued a statement following the incursion that said Trump ‘encouraged this insurrection — both on social media ahead of January 6th, and in his speech that day,'” the report said.
“By deliberately promoting baseless theories suggesting the election was somehow stolen, the president created a combustible environment of misinformation, disenfranchisement, and division,” Katko continued.
Upton, from the state of Michigan, provided an explanation for his choice to vote in favor of impeachment through a statement that said, “Enough is enough. The Congress must hold President Trump to account and send a clear message that our country cannot and will not tolerate any effort by any president to impede the peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next. Thus I will vote to impeach.”
Gonzalez, who hails from the state of Ohio, referred to Trump as a “cancer for the country,” then describing the Jan.6 riot as a personal “line in the sand.”
It’s entirely possible these five individuals who voted in favor of impeachment all truly believe Trump deserved it.
“But as each month seems to reveal more information that undercuts the establishment narrative of what happened on Jan. 6, 2021 — odd behavior by the Capitol Police, apparent FBI activity and more — one has to wonder if the 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump hold firm to their convictions,” the report from WJ stated.
Still, these individuals have paid a pretty sizable price for their decision to side with Democrats. Their careers might be over for good, which means so is their ability to do some good in our government by protecting the rights of the citizens of this country.

IT WILL COST THEM EVERYTHING, WE LOVE AND SUPPORT TRUMP , THE REAL PRESIDENT.
Lavoie, you may be one of the most stupid people God ever let live.
What can you expect from an Obama worshipper with TDS Gary ?
watch the hearings and see just how bad dear leader was!!
Watching a tv show is for losers like you little queer man that don’t work and sit on your butt all day . You definitely know that type little queer man .
Obama worshippers think Pelosi’s tv show is real , how stupid can they be ?
The issue is commitment to the laws of this land and the value of being truthful with the people. President Trump honored his oath to defend and support the Constitution. The Pelosi way is to live in a world of fiction and ignoring the Constitution as the guide for government. Biden has abandoned the laws and has dishonored himself by violating his oath and the laws. His first day in office set the country up for economic failure as he shut down our ability to provide the country from our own resources energy. he then turned to our enemies for energy and enriched them . He then became the human trafficker in chief by enabling the cartel to take over our country at the southern border , and Biden is now the drug czar in chief inviting death with drugs that destroy lives.
Garland is a crime boss, refusing to fulfill his oath of commitment to the laws.
