Members of an organization who want former national security advisor John Bolton to testify in the impeachment hearings against U.S. Republican President Donald Trump will reportedly put out ads in six states.
Tennessee is one of those six states.
This, according to TheHill.com, which reported that members of this group, Republicans for the Rule of Law, will also release ads in Utah, Arkansas, Maine, Colorado, and Arizona.
As The Tennessee Star reported in December, U.S. Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee said he will not take a position on the impeachment of U.S. Republican President Donald Trump.
U.S. Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld reportedly said he knows most of the senior Republicans in the U.S. Senate, and that “they’re picking their words carefully when they talk to me.”
“I wouldn’t want to get quoted,” the website PJMedia.com
“I don’t even like to ask someone to do something which is not in their political self-interest. But yeah, I would say they’re four to six votes for removal right now.”
According to an old article on NYMag.com, with an unspecified date, Weld referred to Alexander as a friend.
As reported, U.S. Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn, who also represents Tennessee, has made her thoughts known on the impeachment matter.
Members of a 501c4 group known as Defending Democracy Together — who say they are “lifelong conservatives and Republicans” — called on Alexander to act in a video.
The ad then touts the website RuleofLawRepublicans.com
According to the website, Republicans for the Rule of Law “is a coalition of Republicans who believe law enforcement investigations should be completed without political interference, the laws apply equally to everyone, and the Constitution needs to be followed.”
Republicans for the Rule of Law is a project of Defending Democracy Together.
According to the organization’s website, The Weekly Standard founder William Kristol directs the group, alongside author and former National Review writer Mona Charen.
Linda Chavez, and former New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, among others, are also involved.
