In the wake of the successful confirmation Saturday of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino declared “Trumpism has been entirely vindicated.”
Emerging as one of the more passionate, outspoken pro-Trump voices on the right, Bongino appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” to say that President Trump keeps beating an “iron triangle” of ideological opposition that has “dominated the GOP for years.”
“Activist groups, the media and the ‘swamp,'” he explained. “Trump keeps continuing to beat the snot out of all of them politically. He just doesn’t back down and they are panicking.”
Bongino pointed to remarks from the president Saturday night at a rally in Kansas to say Trump just “ran up the score.”
Trump celebrated what he called a “tremendous victory,” while ripping Democrats for their unprincipled opposition.
“You wouldn’t hand matches to an arsonist, and you can’t give power to an angry left-wing mob, and that is what they’ve become,” the president said. “The Democrats have become too extreme and too dangerous to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law, not the rule of the mob.”
The midterm elections are now the focus, and whether the Republican Party can hold into its majority in Congress and continue to advance the Trump agenda.
Bongino said those on the right have been motivated by the vile, 11th hour ambush of Kavanaugh.
“The ruthless, disgusting filthy attacks on Kavanaugh have galvanized Republican voters,” he told host Jeanine Pirro.
While he was less sure about the House, Bongino believes the GOP may gain seats in the Senate, pointing to his own state, Florida, to say incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is “in trouble.”
Fellow panelist Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, said if Republicans do well enough, there’s a “good chance” they can maintain control of the House.
“This Kavanaugh confirmation puts the Republican House majority in a much better place,” he said.
