    Wednesday from the Senate floor, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) called on his Republican colleagues to speak out against President Donald Trumpís threats to ďdemocratic institutions,Ē adding, ďif we say nothing then weíve become accomplices with the destruction of these democratic norms.Ē

    Partial transcript as follows:

    In the annals of the presidents say the darnedest things, last weekís Twitter outbursts will stand out, at least for me. Because the president attacked the attorney general of the United States for simply doing the job that he swore an oath to do. Of course it wasnít the first time the president has so diminished himself. But this particular slander was leveled at the attorney general for having the temerity to prosecute public corruption by members of Congress who also happen to belong in the presidentís political party. Thatís right, the president attacked Mr. Sessions by name for refusing to cover up allegations of Republican misconduct. The presidentís concern was not for justice, but for the political fortunes of the accused, because their congressional seats might now be at risk of falling to Democrats. In doing this, the president is projecting a vision onto the system of American justice that is both bizarre and, more important, destructive. Of course, the truly shocking thing about this statement from the president is that given that all of us have become accustomed to during this presidency, or even worse, have become numb to. This Twitter eruption was not at all surprising This appalling statement was a threat to our democratic institutions, Mr. President. At this point, it might be too late for tutorials on the American justice system.

    Its name could not possibly be more appropriate.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    Thank goodness this ******-****er will be in the dust-bin of history in a few months. Ditto for Paul Ryan and Bob Corker.

    It's too bad we can't get rid of Slappy Sasse also.
