A national Republican leader sent an explosive letter to supporters of former President Donald Trump and establishment Republicans trying to push him out of their political party.
His message: It doesn’t matter if you’re angry about the treatment of the 45th president. Conservatives must stay with the Republicans.
“The Republican Civil War is now cancelled,” Sen. Rick Scott, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), demanded in a fiery letter sent to Republican insiders, donors, and activists on Tuesday.
Scott said the Republican Party must put aside internal arguments between Trump supporters and the establishment GOP members that helped Democrats in the second impeachment trial.
Conservatives must get past the impeachment trial and focus on getting Republicans back in power in the upcoming 2022 midterm election, he said.
“The long running impeachment show is now over. This political theater should have been held at the other end of Washington in the Kennedy Center instead of the US Capitol,” Scott wrote about the Democrat-led — and establishment Republican supported — second impeachment trial of Trump.
He demanded that Trump supporters move past the impeachment and help the GOP regain control in D.C.
“It was an unserious circus. It’s over. Now it’s time to look ahead.”
“The Democrats control the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives,” he warned. “In other words, they control Washington.”
“Here is what they have done and are in the process of doing so far: cutting border security, granting amnesty to illegals, cancelling the Keystone pipeline destroying thousands of jobs, allowing males to compete in women’s sports, banning fracking on federal lands making us less energy independent and using tax dollars to pay for abortion in foreign countries,” Scott said.
The intraparty conflict between Trump and the establishment “does not need to be true, should not be true, and will not be true. Those fanning these flames, in both the media and our own ranks, desire a GOP civil war.”
“No, we don’t have time for that: The hour is late, the Democrats are planning to destroy our freedoms, and the threat in front of us is very real,” he wrote.
“To beat this threat — the threat of socialism, crushing debt, loss of freedom — we must focus on addition, not subtraction; on looking forward, not backward.”
“Hopefully, at some point in the future, we will have beaten this threat back and find ourselves strong enough to afford self-indulgent divisions,” Scott said. “But that day is not today.”
