Trump Mocks ‘RINO’ Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, Backs Guy Who Allegedly Slapped Stephanie Grisham as H…Alex Wong/Getty Former President Donald Trump has lashed out at Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH) in a Friday morning statement released by his Save America PAC. Gonzales is the Ohio Congressman who revealed that will not run for reelection in 2022 in part due to threats of violence towards him and his family by Trump loyalists angry that he voted to impeach the 45th president over his role in the January 6th attack on the Capitol. “RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez, who has poorly represented his district in the Great State of Ohio, has decided to quit after enduring a tremendous loss of popularity, of which he had little, since his ill-informed and otherwise very stupid impeachment vote against the sitting President of the United States, me,” Trump wrote, likely angered that Gonzalez went on record as calling…

The Man Behind Saturday’s Pro-Trump Rally Once Praised a Far-Right Assassin

The Man Behind Saturday’s Pro-Trump Rally Once Praised a Far-Right AssassinEditor’s note: This article first appeared in David Corn’s new newsletter, This Land. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial of This Land here. A conservative outfit has announced it is organizing a rally on September 18 at the US Capitol to—get this—seek “justice” for the rioters arrested during the insurrectionist raid on Congress on January 6. The man behind this event is a former Trump 2016 campaign aide who after the 2020 election tried to cast himself as an independent elections expert and data analyst who had uncovered evidence of significant voter fraud. He also happens to be someone I’ve done a bit of reporting on. Matt Braynard is the executive director of Look Ahead America, which describes itself as “an America First nonprofit dedicated to standing up for patriotic Americans who have been forgotten by our government.”…

GOP Congressman Calls Trump ‘Cancer’ While Announcing Retirement Over Threat of Violence from Tr…Republican Rep. Anthony Gonzalez revealed to the New York Times’s Jonathan Martin that he will be retiring from Congress after this term, citing concerns over his and his family’s security from threats of violence from Trump loyalists. Rep. Gonzalez was a star college football player for the Ohio State Buckeyes and was a first-round NFL draft choice. He also is a vocal critic of former President Donald Trump and called him a “cancer for the country.” He was one of a dozen Republican members of Congress that voted to impeach Trump following the attack on the Capitol on January 6th by Trump supporters seeking to overturn the election results. Martin reports: The congressman, who has two young children, emphasized that he was leaving in large part because of family considerations and the difficulties that come with living…

Calling Trump ‘A Cancer for the Country,’ GOP Rep. Says He Won’t Seek Reelection: ‘Toxic Dyn…Getty Images/Pool Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH) will not seek a third term in Congress, citing “the toxic dynamics inside our own party.” The Republican also called former President Donald Trump “a cancer for the country.” Gonzalez drew the ire of Trump earlier this year when he voted to impeach Trump for incitement to insurrection after the January 6 Capitol riot. Trump was acquitted by the Senate, but that did little to soften Trump’s anger towards the Republicans who voted against him. At a rally in Ohio in June, Trump slammed Gonzalez “a grandstanding RINO,” and slammed the representative for voting in favor of “the unhinged, unconstitutional illegal impeachment witch hunt.” Trump added, “He’s a sellout, he’s a fake Republican and a disgrace to your state. He’s not the candidate that you want representing the Republican…
