Will This Elite Cabal To Stop Trump Succeed?
An anti-Trump group of 22 met at just the other day at The Cloister, a super-opulent five-star resort in Sea Island, Georgia. Of course, they met in secret, behind closed doors. Proving that politics sometimes does indeed make for strange bedfellows, the establishment Republicans met with at least one Democrat and a slew of well-heeled liberal techies. We understand that the following is a partial list of who was there:
Tim Cook, billionaire Apple CEO Larry Page, billionaire Google co-founder Sean Parker, billionaire Napster creator and Facebook investor Elon Musk, billionaire Tesla Motors and SpaceX founder Arthur Sulzberger, billionaire publisher of The New York Times Philip Anschutz, billionaire businessman and GOP donor Karl Rove Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.)
