BREAKING: Republican Senator Ben Sasse slams Trump’s latest pardons, calls them “rotten to the core”

Republican Senator Ben Sasse is speaking out against President Trump’s latest wave of pardons that include former campaign manager Paul Manafort, longtime ally Roger Stone and Charles Kushner, the father of Jared Kushner.

Sasse writes in a terse one liner “This is rotten to the core.”

He also refers to Manfort and Stone as “felons” who “flagrantly and repeatedly violated the law and harmed Americans.”

Democrats broadly ripped Trump’s pardons but Sasse is one of the only prominent Republican lawmakers to come out against them.

Rep. Adam Schiff tweeted:

Trump can pardon those convicted of lying for him, but it doesn’t change the facts:

Trump and his campaign asked for help from the Russians, welcomed that help, made full use of it, and then lied to cover it up.

But it does prove one more thing: Trump is corrupt to the end.
