In an emailed statement Thursday, former President Donald Trump slammed the 35 Republican House members, including Nebraska's Jeff Fortenberry and Don Bacon, who voted in favor of establishing a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.
He also took aim at Nebraska’s Ben Sasse. Sasse, who is a member of the U.S. Senate, which has not voted on the matter.
“See, 35 wayward Republicans — they just can’t help themselves. We have much better policy and are much better for the Country, but the Democrats stick together, the Republicans don’t," Trump's statement said.
"They don’t have the Romney’s, Little Ben Sasse’s, and Cheney’s of the world. Unfortunately, we do. Sometimes there are consequences to being ineffective and weak. The voters understand!” Trump said in the email.
