Bob Corker is whining again about the Republican Party being unwilling to stand up to Donald Trump. The problem is, among those unwilling to stand up to Donald Trump is Bob Corker.
Corker could force McConnell's hand anytime he wants by withholding his vote for any of the judges McConnell cares so much about. But Corker doesnt ever use this leverage because he is just as gutless as the rest.https://t.co/whx4sQ25JR

Corker is foreign relations chair. If he wanted to subpoena Trump’s financial docs to determine whether he has corrupt relations with foreign autocrats, and whether that’s contributing to his sabotage of the western alliance, he could. Might save the world. https://t.co/v0giloIm1a

Nah. Easier to get a lot of sweet media appearances if you just talk about how bad Trump is but act on that. After all, the all-time master of big talk while falling in line behind the Republican agenda is in his final days. There’s a big media hole to fill! And to replace Corker, Flake, and McCain playing that role in the Senate, Mitt Romney is tanned, rested, and ready!
