    A pathetic choke by four "Republicans"

    Well they “Mitt Romney-ed” it. On the verge of some action against Madman Mayorkas, four Republicans choked.

    “Republicans entered the vote with two expected GOP “no” votes from Reps. Ken Buck (Colo.) and Tom McClintock (Calif.), but then a third House GOP lawmaker, Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.), also voted against impeachment. The surprise “no” vote prompted numerous GOP colleagues to gather around Gallagher for a lengthy conversation before the vote closed.

    A fourth Republican, Rep. Blake Moore (R-Utah), the vice chair of the GOP conference, then flipped his vote to “no” seconds before the vote closed, a procedural move that allows the conference to bring the legislation back to the floor at a later date.”

    So it can be brought back to the floor. Moore gets a pass. Buck is definitely hoping for a CSIS, CFR, or Atlantic Council Fellow Seat after Congress. McClintock? I have no idea. Gallagher - WHAT?

    Let’s get this back in front of the House when Scalise is better.

    Perhaps Gallagher was doing his childish quitter BFF McCarthy's bidding....tanked the vote to embarrass McCarthy's successor Mike Johnson. Stranger things have happened.
