WATCH: Steve Schmidt Promises to Forever Hold Graham, Cruz, Hawley Accountable for Their Actions
By the end of this week, Republicans will no longer be in power. They will, of course, try to make live miserable for Democrats. That task, though, will be made more difficult by their minorities in the Senate and House.
And it is also likely that Trump’s enablers will pretend they never did anything of the sort. During a Tuesday appearance on MSNBC, Steve Schmidt promised to hold all of the GOP lawmakers who bowed to Trump accountable.
The Lincoln Project co-founder told Stephanie Ruhle, “Tomorrow is a new beginning, which means there is new hope. The country is in great crisis. We will have a new leader. And we will see Donald Trump shuffle off in ignominy, shame and disgrace.”
Schmidt continued, “They will be held to account by the judgement of history, by the judgement of decent Americans, they’ll be held to account by corporate America as they look for jobs, by corporate America as they seek donations. They will not write their history. We will write their history. And their shame will last forever. They are carved like etching into granite — granite onto history’s list of billings in this country.”
The former Republican strategist then called out Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, Josh Hawley, Mark Meadows and Kevin McCarthy by name. “There will be no forgetting,” Schmidt said. “There will be no forgiveness. We do not seek retribution but we do seek accountability and justice for an assault and attack on the government of the United States of America that killed six people.”
