GOP Rep. Mooney Urges House GOP to Show United Support for Trump — He Deserves ‘His Day in Court’

Friday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends First,” Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV) sounded off on his resolution urging his GOP colleagues to send a united message in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to ensure only legal votes were counted in the 2020 presidential election. This comes after a group of more than 100 House Republicans joined an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the State of Texas in its lawsuit against key battleground states Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin.


Boehner Retaliation Haunts Republicans Who Defended, Voted for Him

House Speaker John Boehner’s decision to retaliate, or exact “revenge” as Politico put it, against at least two House Republicans who voted for a Republican alternative is haunting Republicans who supported him conference-wide and sparking a discussion in the party about the role Boehner should play as Speaker—and Republican members should play in challenging his authority.

The Forked-Tongue Freshmen Five Who Told Constituents They Would Vote Against Boehner for Speaker Then Broke Their Promises

Six Republican freshmen members of the House of Representatives promised their constituents on the campaign trail they’d vote against Representative John Boehner (R-OH) as Speaker of the House. Five of these freshmen broke their campaign promises and voted “yes” on Tuesday to elect Boehner to a third term as Speaker of the House. In addition to the six who promised their constituents they would vote against Boehner, incoming Republican freshman Alex Mooney (R-WV) broke a Madison Project Candidate Pledge he signed in December 2013 to vote against Boehner.
