‘You are actively contributing to the destruction of the greatest country on Earth’
Dan Bongino was trusted to guard the president of the United States. He was a top-ranked Secret Service agent and studied psychology as part of his preparation for the job.
Now he’s running as a Republican to be a congressman. And he’s got a simple question for members of the GOP who are supporting Hillary Clinton.
‘Are you crazy?’
Hundreds of thousands have viewed the video. Bongino argued the stakes are too high for any Republican to be supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton.
A number of Republicans have come out in support of Hillary Clinton in recent weeks. Lezlee Westine, a former aide of George W. Bush, announced her support for Hillary Clinton on Monday.
Former GOP governor of Michigan William Milliken also announced he was backing Clinton.
Richard Armitage, Henry Paulson and Brent Scowcroft, all of whom served in the second Bush administration, declared they were supporting Clinton at the end of July.
However, Donald Trump scored a surprise endorsement on Monday from George P. Bush, the son of Jeb Bush. The Texas land commissioner and scion of the Bush political dynasty said he understood the primary was divisive but it is time for Republicans to unite.
“You get back up and you help the man that won, and you make sure that we stop Hillary Clinton,” he said.
Bongino reframed the question of “conscience” some Republicans are using as an excuse not to support Donald Trump. He said the real question is whether someone with the character of Hillary Clinton can be commander-in-chief.
“You’re talking about a woman, again, who lied to the faces of the families of the patriots that died in Benghazi,” he thundered. “Looked them in the eye and knowingly lied. And you’re going to support this woman. What does that say about you?”
