Lisa Murkowski cast deciding vote to confirm radical leftist Vanita Gupta

The Senate confirmed Vanita Gupta as the Associate Attorney General in a tight 51-49 vote on Wednesday, according to The Hill.

Gupta now holds the number three position at the Department of Justice, despite best efforts by conservatives to fend off the nomination. 

Republicans brought objections to her nomination, due to her work as a civil rights advocate during the Trump administration.  

“Your record is one of extreme partisan advocacy,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said at Gupta’s confirmation hearing last month, according to The Hill.

“Your record is an ideologue. There’s a role in our democratic and political process for ideologues, people who are extreme, radical advocates. That role, I believe, is not being the No. 3 lawyer at the Department of Justice in charge of the impartial and fair administration of justice.”

Gupta was an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump and the GOP controlled Senate’s efforts to ensure as many judicial nominees were confirmed as possible while Trump was in office. 

This was brought up to the now third in command at the Justice Department during last month’s confirmation hearing. She apologized but rejected the claim that she wants to defund the police. 

“I regret the harsh rhetoric I have used at times in the last several years,” she told the Judiciary Committee. “I wish I could take it back.” 

The one Republican who decided the majority was Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) who voted in favor of Gupta. She was quickly castigated by other members of her party for the decision.

  1. The NRC keeps soliciting for funds but yet do nothing to bring senators they contribute to in line with the party agenda.
    Murkowski needs to be censored and all support by the NRC withdrawn with notice. The NRC has lost control of any type
    of leadership direction and policies. They need to rein in all rogue actors and actions in order to form a cohesive unit with
    some power. Fractured as the party is, and this is a glaring example, the GOP and NRC stands to lose every time against the
    disciplined Democratic machine. Many Dem’s are not in favor of party actions as they veer too far left but yet they remain committed
    to their organizational demands. The NRC and GOP needs to stand up and fight like for like in order to win some of these critical
    battles.

  2. YEP!!! BLAME IT ON TRUMP. YOU ARE WRONG, BUT THEN DEMCRAPS ARE ALWAYS WRONG. THEY COULDN’T DO ANYTHING RIGHT EVEN BY ACCIDENT. THE ONLY THING OUR GREAT LEADER TRUMP IS GUILTY OF IS MAKING OUR AMERICA THE BEST IT HAS BEEN IN 50 YEARS. ALL OF YOUR
    DEMO-CRAP BLATHER IS WASTED ON TRUE AMERICANS, BECAUSE NO SANE PERSON WILL BELIEVE ANYTHING ALL OF YOU SAY. YOUR ACTIONS SPEAK
    FOR YOU AND IFYOUR MOUTH IS MOVING IT IS ALL LIES. GOD AND AMERICA WILL HAVE THEIR REVENGE. AND THE BEST PART OF THAT REVENGE IS YOU WILL ALL DO IT YOURSELVES. WHEN YOUR JUDGEMENT COMES, SATAN WILL HAVE A HOLIDAY IN YOUR HONOR, BUT IT WILL BE A VERY HOT WELCOME.

  3. Senator Murkowski has no respect for what the American people want. She just doesn’t care. I hope the people of Alaska will get rid of her in the next election. She is a disgrace.

  4. I think her days are numbered. People are tired of her going the democratic way she said she’s not a Republican. I really believe she doesn’t like republicans in you know she didn’t like trump at all. I hope she doesn’t get reelected I think people are waking up to her

  5. She has always been a wolf in sheep’s clothing. She is following in the steps of her father. It’s never been about Alaska for them but about the power. She will be judged in the same category as her mentor, Judas. What a trader, I wonder how many pieces of silver it took for her to sacrifice her soul.

  6. One day Murkowski will stand before GOD and remember these votes that she made and will regret them when GOD says depart of me for I do not know you and casts her into the lake of FIRE for eternety. All the rotten Polititans that are working to destroy Christanity will pay a big price for their ignorant and self serving votes. You can’t go againest GOD and not pay the price, he is a just GOD and will give all siners their just and due rewards when the times comes. Pray on and walk in his lite for the eternal reward that his mercy gives will be there for us. Amen

  7. I have a feeling many of these Rinos are going to screw America! They know they won’t be elected again so there trying to destroy America anyway they can on their way out! I have a feeling we will see this happen with many more Rinos! Liz Cheney will probably be next.

  8. If Murkowski hadn’t flipped the result would have been the same with Harris breaking the tie. Still no excuse for her decision.

  9. RINO traitor Murkowski knows she’s already toast and did this out of spite..
    How childish,, and unprofessional

  10. Not surprised that the was voted in, things will get even more ugly as time goes by, not happy that a Rep voted for her

  11. Murkowski’s values are questionable. If she can not defend the values of her county and political party, she is a traitor to both.

    FIRE HER!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Is there no hope? That is how this feels it really is not Democrat or Republican. It is just power hungry people who don’t care about the people at all.

    1. WHY does the state of alaska hate the rest of the USA so much. Murkowski is anti USA and anti Alaska.

      1. She doesn’t represent Alaskans she represents herself, and she is liberal. My family and including myself never ever voted for her.

    2. Time to get rid of all of them who don’t care about the USA or the American people? I mean all of them,rinos, Democrats, conservative! This country was built by immigrants from all over the world, so why can’t the American people take a stand against all the craziness and get them out of office. We need people to represent us. Tim Scott wants police reform and I have to agree with him.

    3. we must support her primary opponent financially.
      woud not surprise me to see her run for re-election as a DEMORAT

      1. What J says is true. We need to fund her primary opponent financially, even if we can only spare a few bucks. I hope Pres. Trump steps up soon and indicates who we should fund, as I am almost sure he will in LIz Cheney’s case.

      1. She’s always voted with the Dem’Rats and she doesn’t deserve the “R” after her name let alone being re-elected over and over!! She’s the best weapon the Dem’s have. Wake up Alaska stop voting for her!!

    4. She just needs to go! Why is it that she always votes with the Democrats? She is a disgrace to the Republican Party. Get her out because I am tired of her doing this to our party.

    5. Concur…this woman is no more a republican than….Pelosi
      Alaska find a polar bear that will have more sense than her
