Former Arizona senator, Jeff Flake, claimed that & # 39; at least 35 & # 39; Republican senators would vote to accuse Donald Trump in a private vote.

Flake, who has been frank in his criticism of the president in the past, made the daring remark at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin on Thursday.

& # 39; I heard someone say that if there were a private voice, there would be 30 Republican voices, & # 39; Fox news he said. & # 39; That is not true. There would be at least 35. & # 39;

The former GOP senator seemed to respond to a claim from political adviser Mike Murphy about it MSNBC on Wednesday, who suggested that Republicans in the senate accusation would probably support a & # 39; secret vote & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I tell you, these Senate Republicans, if the Democrats vote deposition, are locked up for a yes-no answer & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; And if they cover Donald Trump for this, a clear violation of his role as president, we're gonna lose Colorado with Cory Gardner. We're gonna lose Maine with Susan Collins. We're gonna lose Arizona with Martha McSally. And the Democrats will really bring the Senate into play.

& # 39; I can tell you this: a Republican senator told me that if it was a secret vote, 30 Republican senators would vote to accuse Trump & # 39 ;.

Flake, 56, announced in 2017 that he would not seek re-election in the senate until he formally resigned two years later.

& # 39; I heard someone say that if there were a private voice, there would be 30 Republican voices, & # 39; said Flake (photo). & # 39; That is not true. There would be at least 35 & # 39;

The former senator, once described by Trump as & # 39; toxic & # 39 ;, said that & # 39; reckless, shameful, and unworthy behavior & # 39; posed a threat to democracy in the office of the President.

When he announced his retirement, Flake added that he & # 39; was a matter of duty and conscience & # 39; found to criticize Trump.

& # 39; We should never undermine the normal and informal undermining of our democratic norms and ideals as & # 39; consider normal & # 39 ;, & # 39; the BBC he said.
