Senator Ben Sasse responds to threats of censure by Nebraska GOP

(Washington D.C.) -- Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is responding to threats of a second censure by the Nebraska GOP.

Sasse was previously censured by the Nebraska GOP back in May of 2016, for what his office says was him, "not being supportive enough of Donald Trump."

Sasse's office says the Nebraska GOP is again threatening censure for the Senator's response to the riots at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th and for repeated condemnations of former President Trump. "Let's be clear: the anger in this state party has never been about me violating principle or abandoning conservative policy -- I'm one of the most conservative voters in the Senate -- the anger's always been simply about me not bending the knee guy."

A "Resolution of Censure" against Sasse has been drafted and a vote could happen February 13th when the Nebraska Republican Party's State Central Committee meets in Columbus. The Nebraska GOP claims Sasse is a "player, a political opportunist and a climber."

Sasse released a video of his censure response on Thursday. you can see the full video below.
