“Donald Trump doesn’t want witnesses…and new information and documentation,” Brown said, “Therefore, Mitch McConnell who is Donald Trump’s lap dog doesn’t want information and witnesses; therefore, 52 other relatively spineless republicans don’t want witnesses, don’t want information. They’re scared.”
“I talk to Republicans all the time quietly, individually. Many of them tell me that Trump’s a liar. A few said Trump’s a racist,” he continued. “They’re all afraid of him. They’re afraid he’ll campaign against them in their state. They’re afraid he’ll attach a nasty nickname to them. In this chamber, it’s like the Iraq war when I was in the House 15 years ago.”
“Fear does the business. Republicans are afraid of what Donald Trump will do,” he said.
