Resigners expressed dismay that many of their elected brothers of faith had not ostracized former President Donald Trump after his false allegations of election fraud that led to the congressional assault.
These officials, some of whom served in the senior positions of the Bush administration, said they hoped Trump’s defeat would prompt Red Party leaders to denounce their unfounded allegations that they stole his election victory.
According to the Reuters investigation, these former government figures say they no longer recognize the organization they served because it still reveres Trump, some of them have resigned from their membership, others have allowed its expiration date, while some have been registered as independent.
Jimmy Guruli, who was the Treasury’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence in the Bush administration, said the Republican Party, as it knew it no longer existed, was now a cult of Trump.
Christopher Purcell, who worked in the Bush White House Communications Office for six years, said that about 70 former employees who worked at that point decided to leave the party or cut ties with that political group, a number that increases daily.
The poll makers say the group is currently caught between disaffected and independent moderate Republicans who are disgusted with Trump’s control of elected officials and al Qaeda fiercely loyal to the real estate mogul.
On the other hand, Rosario Marin, who was the US treasurer in the Bush administration, recently indicated that unless the Senate condemns him and “gets rid of Trump’s cancer, not many of us will vote for Republican leaders again.”
More than half of the Republicans in Congress, eight members of the Senate and 139 members of the House of Representatives voted in favor of blocking the certification of Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s victory in the election, just hours after the siege of the Capitol.
The House of Representatives led by Democrats indicted Trump on January 13 for “inciting disobedience,” and he is the only president to have been charged twice during his presidency.
On the other hand, according to “The Hill” newspaper, prominent figures in the Republican Party admitted that this political group is deeply divided, which jeopardizes the possibility of restoring the House of Representatives, the Senate and the Presidency in the upcoming elections.
