All’s Quiet on the Leftward Front

May 6, 2024

POLITICO recently reported on the numerous House Democrats who have yet to say anything about the recent indictment of Rep. Henry Cuellar (TX-28) despite having quite a bit to say about former Rep. Santos. 

Per POLITICO, “The argument is simple, from their view: Republicans moved to clean house and remove a member of their own party — why won’t Democrats? 

As a reminder, Rep. Pat Ryan had this to say about Rep. Santos: “…This is about trust in our democracy among the American people.’ And unfortunately, we just continue to see people putting power over the essence of our democracy…”

And here is what he said about Rep. Cueller’s recent indictment: *crickets* 

“The House Democrats’ official slogan is ‘people over politics.’ Are they going to subscribe to that or no? Will Rep. Ryan call on Rep. Cuellar to resign?” – NRCC Spokeswoman Savannah Viar
