Arizona Senator Jeff Flake (R) announced that he would not be seeking re-election next year. Jeff Flake didn’t plan on going out without a bang though. In a speech before Congressional Senators Flake scolded his party for being complicit with a president who was bringing the Country down. Conservative Republicans including John Mccain, and Senator Bob Corker agreed with Flake that enough is enough. Trump, Steve Bannon, and their deplorable followers took the announcement by Flake as a win for their team as they took to Twitter to claim that Bannon had pulled off another victory in his “draining the swamp” campaign after his short-lived career in the White House came to an end. Most people not caught up in the brain-washing Trump agenda saw Flake’s speech in another way. Flake, Corker, and Mccain are a few Republicans who are finally finding the courage to speak out against an obviously corrupt regime. As time goes along, the hope is that more will find the courage to speak out and hopefully take action and move toward impeachment. We will see.
