  • Behar: ‘Ben Sasses of the World Are More Dangerous Than Even the Lindsey Grahams’

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) was more dangerous than Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) while discussing Republican senators who voted against confirming Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “Lindsey Graham, of course, is already hinting there will be consequences if the GOP takes over after the midterms. I do want to point out that Lindsey Graham voted for Ketanji Jackson for the U.S. Court of Appeals less than a year ago. If you’re voting to put people on the court, why is this one so...
  • Ben Sasse to Vote ‘No’ on Jackson’s Supreme Court Nomination, Threatening Judiciary Committee’s Approval

    Senate Judiciary Committee member Ben Sasse (R-NE) announced Friday night he will vote “no” on Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination, threatening the committee’s approval of the judge. If a majority of Judiciary Committee members do not vote to approve Jackson’s nomination, the vote may result in an 11-11 tie between Republicans and Democrats, forwarding her nomination to the Senate floor with additional procedural steps, meaning the nomination does not have the committee’s recommendation, which under other circumstances is often fatal. A full Senate vote could then mean moderate Democrats may oppose Jackson’s nomination because of her record of soft...

    Senator Ben. Sasse (R-NE) called out the “jackassery” in the Senate moments after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned President Joe Biden’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, about her soft sentences for child sex offenders. Sasse spoke about why cameras should not be allowed in the Supreme Court when he noted that “the jackassery we often see around [the U.S. Senate] is partly because of people looking for short term camera opportunities.”
  • Sasse: ‘Obviously’ Trump’s Phone Call to Zelensky Was Not Prefect — ‘There Was A Lot Wrong with It’

    Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that former President Donald Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President and Volodymyr Zelensky that led to his first impeachment “obviously” was not perfect. Host Trace Gallagher said, “Democrats have pointed to former President Trump’s relationship with Zelenskyy, reported asking for political help in exchange for aid. President Trump also reportedly ordered Mike Pence to not attend President Zelensky’s inauguration back in 2019. Does the former president deserve some criticism for what some say is a poor record on Ukraine and Russia?”

    A group of anti-Trump Republicans on Thursday endorsed a slate of Democrats and centrist Republicans in the 2022 midterms to fight against the former president’s hold on the party. The Renew America Movement (RAM) announced it is backing a slew of lawmakers running for reelection. The group was founded by a group of moderates within the GOP after the Jan. 6 insurrection, which was fueled by then-President Trump’s lies about the election being stolen in November. “There is an urgent effort by Republicans and former Republicans to stem the tide of anti-democratic and lie-based Republican leaders in congress before it’s...

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) said Afghans being evacuated from Afghanistan and resettled in the United States by President Joe Biden’s administration are “welcome” in his neighborhood. During an interview with Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace, Sasse said American citizens have an obligation to bring anywhere from 60,000 to 80,000 Afghans to the U.S. for permanent resettlement.
  • NE Republican Ben Sasse knocks 'Trump-Biden doctrine of weakness' as situation deteriorates in Afghanistan

    Republican Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.) is blasting both the Trump and Biden administrations for a "doctrine of weakness" that he said resulted in the current situation in Afghanistan as a government takeover by the Taliban now appears to be imminent. "The unmitigated disaster in Afghanistan — the shameful, Saigon-like abandonment of Kabul, the brutalization of Afghan women, and the slaughter of our allies — is the predictable outcome of the Trump-Biden doctrine of weakness," Sasse said in a statement on Sunday. The senator said the two most recent administrations "deliberately decided to lose" in Afghanistan. "America’s leaders didn’t tell the...

    An Oxford man convicted of sex trafficking is asking for a new trial, citing several trial errors — including one by a U.S. senator — that led to his conviction. William "Billy" Quinn, 57, filed a motion for a new trial Friday in Furnas County District Court. Quinn was found guilty of 13 counts of sexual assault and sex trafficking of a 15-year-old during a two-week trial last month in Beaver City. He was acquitted of one count of felony first-degree sexual assault. Quinn’s attorney, Joseph Howard of Omaha, filed the motion, alleging that, among other things, U.S. Sen. Ben...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and a group of Republican conservatives have struck a deal to allow a Friday vote on a bill setting up a bipartisan Jan. 6 commission, which will let senators leave Washington for the Memorial Day recess early Friday afternoon. The deal, which was approved by the entire Senate after being hotlined, will postpone the final procedural votes and the final up-or-down vote on a bill to improve U.S. competitiveness with China until next month. But it means that Republicans won’t be able to delay consideration of the China bill into the holiday weekend, which...

    Senate Republicans on Friday blocked an independent, bipartisan commission to study the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.Eager to put the events of that day and former President Trump’s role in it behind them, Republicans blasted the commission proposal as a partisan attempt by Democrats to keep both in the news during next year’s pivotal midterm elections.The bill fell in the first legislative filibuster of the year as it failed to get the 60 votes needed to advance. The vote was 54 to 35 to move the bill forward, with a handful of Republicans breaking ranks — Sens. Mitt...

    Ben Sasse is about to be censured by the Nebraska GOP for his antagonistic stance toward Donald Trump — again. But he doesn't care. As Sasse's fellow Republican critics of Trump fret over blowback from a base that demands loyalty to the ex-president, the senator isn't even trying to dissuade those seeking to punish him. Sasse conceded in an interview: “I assume I'm going to be censured on Saturday, but I haven't spent any time to talk anybody out of it.”

    Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse (R), who voted to convict former President Trump earlier this month in the Senate impeachment trial, warned that the Republican Party is in an internal battle between "conservatism and short-term-ism." Sasse noted in an interview with NPR released Tuesday that “obviously there are a lot of people frustrated with me in Nebraska,” but he added that “a lot of them also have the six-and-a-half year history with me where they know that though I'm a very conservative guy, I'm pretty independent-minded." "I don't think they're very surprised, but obviously there is a move at county and...

    Republicans on Wednesday dug up past instances of Democratic House impeachment managers and President Biden using the words “fight” or “fight like hell” — one of the key allegations against former President Donald Trump at his Senate trial. The Save America PAC’s “Trump War Room” tweeted a “FLASHBACK” screenshot of lead House manager Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) invoking the notion of combat to block Republican efforts to swiftly replace the late US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following her death in September. “The GOP rush to replace Justice Ginsburg is all about destroying the Affordable Care Act, women’s health care...

Larry Hogan, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska as potential spokespeople. “So there will be some new faces,” Mr. Romney said. “President Trump, of course, will continue to have influence, but I think our party is going to return to some of our more fundamental principles, which is fiscal responsibility, believing in the importance of character,...

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) is one of those people who thinks they are the smartest person in the room, which is usually true in their case until someone else enters. As our Constitutional Republic disintegrates under the weight of a corrupted electoral process, he would split constitutional hairs to allow others, including SCOTUS of the empty-robed Chief Justice John Roberts, to shred and ignore the U.S. and state constitutions, to steal the 2020 presidential election from Donald J. Trump in the biggest crime spree in history. Sen. Sasse is an ignorant coward, the Sgt. Shultz of the Senate, who sees,...

    In a lengthy post on Facebook, Nebraska GOP senator Ben Sasse addresses the danger of Congress attempting to overturn the election on January 6: The president and his allies are playing with fire. They have been asking – first the courts, then state legislatures, now the Congress – to overturn the results of a presidential election. They have unsuccessfully called on judges and are now calling on federal officeholders to invalidate millions and millions of votes. If you make big claims, you had better have the evidence. But the president doesn’t and neither do the institutional arsonist members of Congress...
