In another sign that Republicans are moving closer to giving up on Trump, GOP members of Congress are already discussing how they will obstruct Hillary Clinton if she wins the White House.
Politico noted that Republicans are girding for the eventuality of a Clinton win and reported:
Republicans operatives on the Hill, for instance, are already planning to block Clinton’s agenda by strategically targeting individual Democratic senators who will be up for reelection in 2018. “Take Joe Manchin in West Virginia,” explained one GOP operative of the strategy. “If Hillary puts up an anti-coal pro-EPA judge for the Supreme Court, the smart play is to start pressuring him with an advocacy campaign to vote no.” Voting with Clinton would jeopardize his reelection chances, and voting against her would rob her of a Democratic Senate vote she couldn’t afford to lose without the 60 votes needed to filibuster.
The fact that it isn’t Labor Day yet and Republicans are already planning for how they will obstruct Hillary Clinton after she wins the White House is telling. Republicans don’t think that Trump is going to win.
