Marsha Blackburn says Their Day Job is Senator, Night Job is Presidential Candidate

 

Calls for Senators Warren, Sanders, Klobuchar and Bennet to Recuse Themselves from Senate Trial

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) spoke with Fox & Friends about her call for the four Senators running for president to recuse themselves from the Senate impeachment trial.

These individuals should say ‘Look, we’re spending millions of dollars to defeat this guy, and we don’t want him to be president.’ I do not think it is possible to fulfill their oath of impartiality if they are going to be running against him when they’re not sitting in the chamber.”
