Top Dem Claims Freedom Caucus Seriously Considering Trump For House Speaker

A member of the January 6 Committee claims the Freedom Caucus is increasingly considering Trump for Speaker of the House

Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland claimed over the weekend that House Republicans, particularly the Freedom Caucus, are increasingly considering 45th President Donald Trump for the job of Speaker of the House.

Raskin, a member of the January 6 committee, made the remarks yesterday during an appearance on “Face The Nation” with Margaret Brennan, who responded to Raskin’s claims with incredulity.

“And again, you know, Kevin McCarthy and other leaders within the Republican Party are now required to make a decision about whether they’re going to try to rid themselves of Donald Trump and his toxic influence on the party,” Raskin said, revealing how some Democrats likely perceive the internal struggle between Make America Great Again and establishment Republicans.

Noting that McCarthy may face a fierce leadership challenge from the right, Raskin claimed, “it’s a real problem for Kevin McCarthy now, because there are certain pro-Trumpists within his House caucus, who refuse to accept that he’s really with Trump and they want to get rid of McCarthy.”

Watch an excerpt of the interview on Spreely.video:

“And some of them– they have names very early in the alphabet,” Raskin added, “like Biggs.” Raskin referred to Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, who is widely considered to be a possible replacement for McCarthy.

Then, Raskin claimed Republicans are increasingly considering bucking the tradition of giving the Speaker of the House job to an elected politician.

“And they might just vote for Trump, when they you know, take the roll call for speaker so we know that the– the hard right Freedom Caucus people are in search of another candidate and one potential candidate whose name has been floated is Donald Trump himself, because the Speaker of the House does not have to be a member of the House,” said Raskin, “And they are talking about putting Trump right there.”

When Bream expressed incredulity, declaring it’s not a “real option” for Republicans, Raskin replied that “they talk about it repeatedly” and “if Trump decided he wanted to do it, it would pose a profound problem for their party because they refuse to do the right thing.”

Raskin and Bream then discussed his hopes that Republicans would inexplicably drop their support for the Make America Great Again movement and instead support establishment, anti-Trump figures like “Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.”

While many still consider it unlikely that Trump will be Speaker of the House – the 45th President himself poured cold water on the idea – it is becoming increasingly likely that McCarthy will face a challenge from the pro-Trump right.

Last week, Rep. Matt Gaetz went viral for his attacks on McCarthy’s bid for Speaker.

“Kevin is FLIGHT over FIGHT when the chips are down,” Gaetz wrote on Twitter after days of attacks on the establishment Republican, “He is not a Speaker for these times.”

    That’s the Hot Evidence proving how In Bed together are the Democrats and the GOP SWAMP are. Raskin is advocating that the Republicans instead support establishment, anti-Trump figures like “Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger” so it will be easier for them to bully the RINOs into rolling over supporting their Liberal Agenda!

      I know this will get lost in the comment section but sometimes at night I go to my backyard and roll over in the dirt and I pretend I’m a big carrot 🥕.. The neighborhoods come out to their back yards and yell out “ hey who’s there” I would like to answer but since carrots can’t talk, I remain quiet.

    The ONLY way Democrats win is through fraud. They are selling out country to the communists. Is this what Americans wanted? No it is not but the Democrats have sold their soul to the devil. This man is lying so much it is a wonder lightning doesn’t strike him.

      Amen I agree they have sold their souls to the devil. They have done so much damage to President Trump by their lies & false impeachments [including waste of time & money] I think him being Speaker of the house with De Santis as president is a great idea, God bless we need all of God’s help here. Happy Thanksgiving ! ABORTION IS MURDER OF THE UNBORN.

    When are these Democrats going to accept the fact that the USA is NOT a Democracy.. but, a Constitution-Republic? Not sure as to when they went from the “Democrat” Party to the ‘Democratic’ Party?

    “Democratic” is a way of doing certain things. Nothing Democratic about the Democrat Party.

      By democracy they mean mob rule and they being in charge. That is Soviet style one party absolute rule with no opposition.

      If Trump became speaker a lot of investigations would commence. If I were a democrat politician I would be scared too.

    And we are supposed to trust and follow the advice of the MainStream Media and other Democrats about what Republicans should do (despite several years of unbelievable distortions and outright lies) because….? (….what?)
