    ---snip--- President Trump committed impeachable offenses that disqualify him from serving. “I do think the president committed impeachable offenses but I don’t know what’s going to land on the Senate floor,” Toomey told “The Journal Editorial Report” on Fox News. Toomey, however, waffled on whether Congress should move forward with impeachment given President-elect Joe Biden will take power on Jan. 20. “I have to say I do think the president’s behavior this week does disqualify him from serving but we’ve got 10 days,” Toomey said. The Pennsylvania senator said he’s unsure whether it’s logistically possible, practical or desirable to try...

    U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey on Saturday decried the effort by some members of his party to oppose the certification of the presidential election results. A coalition of 11 Republican senators, led by Ted Cruz of Texas, announced it will challenge the outcome of the presidential election by voting to reject electors from some states when Congress meets next week to certify the Electoral College results that confirmed President-elect Joe Biden won.

    January 2, 2020 Sen. Josh Hawley (MO-R) fired back after Sen. Pat Toomey (PA-R) and others raise concerns about his plans — along with at least 11 other GOP senators — to object to the electoral vote count when a joint session of Congress meets Jan. 6, per email sent to Senate GOP Conference tonight. Hawley told Toomey that instead of debating the issue by press release, Toomey should perhaps debate him on the Senate floor. Read full statement:

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Saturday offered blistering criticism of a plan by at least 12 Republican senators to challenge the results of the election next week, warning that they "imperil" public trust. “The egregious ploy to reject electors may enhance the political ambition of some, but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it," Romney said in a statement. Romney had previously told reporters Friday that objecting during Wednesday's joint session, where Congress will formally count the Electoral College vote, would help...

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) on Sunday urged President Trump to sign the coronavirus aid package that has passed Congress, warning the president’s legacy is at stake. “You don’t get everything you want, even if you’re president of the United States,” Toomey said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I think the COVID relief measures are really, really important.” “In my state, as in many other states, we have governors who are closing down businesses again,” he added. Toomey called it a “hopeful sign” that Trump has not yet vetoed the bill passed by Congress, even as he has demanded larger direct payments...

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) said President Trump’s reported attempts to overturn the results of the presidential election in Pennsylvania were “completely unacceptable.” “It’s completely unacceptable and it’s not going to work and the president should give up trying to get legislatures to overturn the results of the elections in their respective states,” Toomey told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Toomey added that he spoke on the phone with President-elect Joe Biden last week, saying “we had a very pleasant conversation” regarding potential areas of cooperation. The Pennsylvania Republican, who has said he will not seek a third term in 2022, is one...

    Conservative radio show host Mark Levin said a “couple more weeks” of letting President Trump’s legal efforts regarding the election play out is better than “what the Democrats are doing to our institutions.” “As if a couple more weeks to let these things play out will somehow do grave damage to the country, as opposed to what the Democrats are doing to our institutions,” Levin tweeted in a thread Sunday. Levin’s tweet came after former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie called Trump’s legal team a “national embarrassment” during an interview with George Stephanopoulos. “Let's see, Georgie invites Christie on his...

    President Donald Trump’s claims of fraud and theft of the election are “just not substantiated,” Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) said Friday. “I saw the president’s speech last night and it was very hard to watch. The president’s allegations of large-scale fraud and theft of the election are just not substantiated. I’m not aware of any significant wrongdoing here,” he said during an interview on the Today show:

    Look, Sen. Pat Toomey's (R-PA) an okay senator. Surely, he, like the late Arlen Specter prior to his party betrayal, were Republicans who can win statewide. He was a seat-filler, but he also betrayed us on Second Amendment rights regarding his appalling bill to expand background checks. Did it save him with suburban voters? Maybe. Sen. Pat Toomey's ability to clinch Bucks County, a key collar country around Philadelphia, surely helped in his 2016 re-election effort when every squishy GOP operative worried about the GOP brand. They were wrong. Still, Toomey’s anti-gun push made me feel indifferent regarding the senator’s...

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), who is poised to become chairman of the Senate Banking Committee if Republicans keep the Senate majority, announced Monday that he will retire from Congress at the end of 2022. Toomey, who is in his second Senate term, also said he has decided not to run for governor in 2022 and instead will return to the private sector, although he doesn’t have any “specific plans” for what he’ll do after 18 years of public service in Washington — three House terms and two Senate terms. Toomey said his decision was driven by “personal” reasons and not...

    The political future of Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey is unknown, according to a report today, indicating that he may not run for reelection or for governor of Pennsylvania in 2022. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the news Sunday, citing two people familiar with his plans. While the 58-year-old Republican senator is expected to serve out his current term, he is not expected to seek another term or to run for governor, for which he was seen as a likely GOP candidate, according to the Inquirer. Toomey is expected to make an announcement Monday morning, spokesman Steve Kelly said. He has served...

    Total victory is upon us, folks. And some Republicans have managed to get on a path towards redemption with conservatives. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said he wouldn’t block the nominee. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is a ‘no,’ but as we’ve said before—Maine is an oddball state. She gets a pass. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), a runner up in the biggest pain in the a** contest among the GOP, did initially say that she’s opposed to filling the Supreme Court vacancy left by Ruth Bade Ginsburg, but is now changing her tune. The last justice passed away last Friday making the...

    Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senators Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) are teaming up again to encourage Americans to wear a mask when they venture out of their homes. In late March, Senators Toomey and Bennet became the first two members of Congress to publicly support mask wearing to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Their efforts included encouraging the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the White House Coronavirus Task Force to update safety guidelines to encourage the use of masks. These efforts paid off as both the CDC and the Task Force endorsed mask wearing...
  • Donald Trump attacks Senators Mitt Romney and Pat Toomey as 'RINOS' after the two Republicans condemn his commutation of Roger Stone's jail sentence as 'corruption' and a 'mistake'

    President Donald Trump attacked a pair of Republican senators who condemned his Friday night order to grant clemency to longtime advisor Roger Stone – calling them Republicans 'in name only.' His late-night blast came after they became the only GOP senators to rebuke Trump for eliminating the 40-month sentence for his longtime associate, who was convicted by a jury of witness tampering and lying to Congress. The response of Romney – the only Republican to vote for an article of impeachment against Trump – was withering, while that of Toomey was more measured, but both said Trump's decision was wrong.

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Friday that American political leaders are “overstating the danger” of coronavirus to most Americans while “underestimating” the economic “carnage” that lockdowns nationwide are causing. Toomey, a key U.S. senator from a Rust Belt battleground state, conducted this interview with Breitbart News after rolling out a plan to much more quickly reopen Pennsylvania than the plan the state’s Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf has begun. Toomey, a widely respected Republican who serves alongside a Democrat, Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA), is not known for making outlandish claims so his statements here...

    The Senate overwhelmingly passed President Trump's proposed replacement for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on Thursday, sending the deal to the president’s desk for his approval. Passage of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) represents a rare moment of bipartisanship in a bitterly divided Congress. The deal cleared the Senate by a vote of 89 to 10 on Thursday, close to a month after passing the House by a vote of 385-41. Republicans were eager to help Trump accomplish a major pillar of his economic agenda despite their preferences for a deal with looser restrictions. Democrats, who broadly shared Trump’s...

Democrats are pressing Trump to agree to a gun control bill already approved by the House, but...
