Outgoing GOP Rep. announces intent to ‘disaffiliate’ from the Republican party

Rep. Paul Mitchell (R-MI), who already announced that he is retiring from the House at the end of his term, also shocked the GOP by announcing on Monday that he’s resigning from the Republican party altogether. 

Mitchell has already established himself as a “never-Trumper” in recent years, and has grown increasingly frustrated with the direction of the GOP in general, especially in regard to the outcome of the November election.

The Michigan lawmaker announced his intention to “disaffiliate” from the Republican party in a press released on Monday.

“It is unacceptable for political candidates to treat our election system as though we are a third-world nation and incite distrust of something so basic as the sanctity of our vote,” Mitchell wrote, though he did admit that there is evidence that
“both administrative errors and even some fraudulent voting likely occurred this year.”

Taking up similar rhetoric to many GOP leaders that gave up on Trump soon after election day, Mitchell continued: “If Republican leaders collectively sit back and tolerate unfounded conspiracy theories and ‘stop the steal’ rallies without speaking out for our electoral process …. our nation will be damaged.”

Mitchell’s term ends in January, and his disaffiliation means he will serve out the rest of his time in Congress as an Independent.

Michigan voters have already chosen his successor, Republican Lisa McClain, who will be sworn in at the beginning of the next legislative session.

    1. He was against Trump from the start so good riddance. He is part of the swamp that Trump said he was going to drain. Another one gone.

      1. Larry, I agree and good riddance to another Rino, slowly draining the swamp of crooks that only want to help themselves and not the people of America.

  1. Being a never Trumper is the same as being Anti American, Anti Freedom! We won’t miss him, he can go live with Rommney, we won’t miss either them or any other RINO!

    1. Exactly. I say…let him go and don’t let the door hit you on your back. Otherwise, Get Out! We don’t need you.

    2. Be careful and watch what Biden and Kamala is going to do…Can’t trust the both of them..They’re affiliated with CHINA…

    3. You’re so right, Jack. The Democrats can and do everything to win, including voter fraud and we’re supposed to
      just sit down and shut up! The Republican party is done with that. We will stand up and fight now. We certainly don’t need him so glad he’s gone!!!!

    4. JACK DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE JOE BIDEN AND HIS CORRUPT PARTY IS GOING TO DO BETTER THAN WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS DONE FOR US IN OUR COUNTRY.JOE BIDEN HAS DEMENTIA DOESNT KNOW WERE HE IS HALF OF THE TIME AND WERE HE IS GOING.WHY IN HEAVEN DO YOU PEOPLE BELIEVE THIS CRAZY MAN. COULD YOU SEE BIDEN TALKING WITH FOREIGN LEADERS ABOUT OUR COUNTRY. THEY WILL MAKE ABIG FOOL OUT OF HIM AND WE WILL BE IN A WAR.HARRIS ISNOTHING B UT A CLOWN. THIS IS DISGRACEFUL. WE WONT HAVE A COUNTRY WITH FREEDOM ANYMORE.THE CHINESE WILL BE RUNNING OUR COUNTRY. JOE WILL BE A PUPPET FOR THEM.NO MORE CONSTITUTION NO MORE BILL OF RIGHTS.OUR COUNTRY IS HEADING FOR A DISASTER. GOD HELP US.JACK THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT IN OUR COUNTRY?YOU MUST BE INSANE LIKE BIDEN?WAKE UP PEOPLE THIS WONT BE AMERICA ANYMORE. CHINA WHITE HOUSE. THATS WERE THIS COUNTRY IS HEADED FOR. GOD HELP US PRAYER THATS WHAT WE NEED RIGHT NOW.

    1. Funny, its RINO and it was made up by Trump to mean Republican in Name Only. Trump himself is no republican. He is a dictator and will probably start his own party in another country. All who worship him can go with him. Most of America do not want him here! Larry Hogan 2024!

      1. Larry you are crazy trump is the best president we ever had and he put America first and by the way we ain’t going anywhere

      2. You are way out of line and you need to examine yourself for what you just said your hate is all over every word you typed. Trump will not go run for office in another country and he is not a dictator but you are . You have no power to tell us the American people who support Trump to go with him to another country cause you have no power to do that. You are very wrong! What have you done for America?

  2. Well, guess he won’t be missed! Hopefully his replacement will be a TRUE Republican in every sense of the word. We need NO MORE RINOS in office! Odd that he would bail just as he is ready to retire, why not before? Guess he couldn’t push the “ never Trump “ rhetoric if he bailed beforehand. Just another brick falling out of the anti Trump wall!

  3. He knows the election is flawed. Fraud happened but he thinks we should just go along with it because he doesn’t like Trump. That’s dishonest…good riddance. Go Home and join the flat earth society.

    1. Fraud happened? Is that why Trump’s legal team has gotten thrown out of every court of law? You and many other do not realize it yet; but, you have been conned by Trump. Now he is just taking your money! Shame

      1. If you cannot see all of the good things that trump has done for this country then your head must be in a dark place. Also donated his salary to charity. Would you have done that?

      2. It is hard to win in a court appointed by a democrap. You think a left leaning judge will allow anything to happen when it involves a conservative. And yes, President Trump is not a republican or a professional politician like biden who spent 47 years on the government dole. biden cannot show much if any that he accomplished except fill his pockets with our tax money.

        1. Not just frauden….hitlery…an obuttma….are in to rape america an sell out to china……..they all should be jailed

      3. The judges are demoncrats
        thats why….fraudens deep state thugs are threatning people if they dont go along with the fraud.
        money hungery whores…..

      4. Trump does not need any body’s money he is a multi billionaire. So stop making negative remarks about Trump he owes you nothing. He is not a con man either but you are because it take one to know one. Shame on you that you know nothing of what is going on ! There have been hundreds if not thousands of witnesses that say there is fraud cause they saw it and the way they were treated and changing the rules as they went along proves that the legislators of those states were not told about this and they are the only ones who can change the laws, not the managers nor the secretary of state but the LEGISLATORS.

  4. YOU BIDEN LOVER ARE TO DUMB TO KNOW WHEN GOT IT GOOD, NOW START PAYING $7 OR 8 DOLLARS FOR GAS,NOW START LOOKING FOR A PLACE ON THE ST TO LIVE, YOU FREEKS

      1. Why do you hate Trump he has done nothing to you and doesn’t even know you. When a person like you that hates has a big problem with him self, you hate your own self because you have failed in life. Learn to love yourself and do not be selfish.

    1. Where were these people educated?
      Possibly in joes basement bunker.
      I still don’t know any of these never trumpet babies that can tell me what Trump did to them.
      Not one.

  5. Just how much fraud is acceptable to these never Trumpers. Do they really think that calling out fraudulent votes in our national election causes more harm to the country then allowing it to go unchallenged and just accept the act? Good thing cowards like this guy weren’t around in 1775.

    1. Just what fraud are you referring. Last I checked none of it could be proven in court. Trump will never be president again. If that loser tries to run in 2024 over 90 million voters will vote against him. His kind is done. Get me a real republican. Larry Hogan 2024!

      1. You are a complete child that has never grown up just re-read what you commented. You just did not get your way so your will throw a tantrum and hate Trump and wish him the worse and you will end up being the worst.

      1. HA, HA HA GIVE US A REASON FOR YOUR COMMENT WHERE IS THE PROOF AND FOR WHAT NO EVIDENCE OF ANY THING WRONG DOING ! STOP YOUR LIES AND GO TO BED AND GO TO SLEEP .

  6. These are Reps forget why they are in office. They are not there for their personal reasons but for their voters. Would the voters have elected him if they knew he was going to take this action ? No. The reps we have today are all two faced and self serving. That is why public service is now a 40+ year career. Why corps are re the constituency over the voter. Riches in kickbacks.
    I will not belong to a political party.
    Biden/Harris will fail due to the fact the office they seek is built on a lie and fraud. They are cursed.

      1. What planet u live on?
        its everywhere…. the media is bought off..so there not reporting it.
        if they dont report it it didnt happen
        thats the logic behind the fraud.
        Keep pushing the lie

      2. The lawyers investigated and they are under oath you know nothing of what is going on you just pop up with what ever you want to say with no merit.

  7. I am going to give all of us a comment to the effect the persons of my country. Currently the democratic party is acting like the commie party of China and Russia. Their comments as to what they ARE GOING TO DO WHEN THEY TAKE OFFICE . They sound like the pigs of Germany- Cuba-Venezuela – CHINA–which means when the demos take office my country will be governed the same as the above named countries with in a few years. I am a retired AMERICAN GI AND DO NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN. THE COMMENTS OUT OF BIDEN AND HIS VP –TELL ME THE ABOVE COULD HAPPEN—I SURE HOPE AND PRAY OTHER WISE.

  8. Too bad more of these Demmunists in sheep’s clothing don’t “disaffiliate” from the Republican Party and comeo ut as the conniving, America-hating, power-mad DEMMUNISTS they really are!

  9. It the road Paul and don’t you come back no more no more no more no more, hit the road Paul and don’t you come back no more – What chu say!

  10. It is interesting that so many traitors exist inside our government. Due to the illusion of Joe being the “President Elect”, they are all coming out in the open and speaking their evil truth, enabling everyone to see exactly who they are and to whom they owe their allegiance- the Council of Foreign Relations, the Committee of 300 and the Communists. Stealing every election since Calvin Coolidge, blackmailing those who wish to win elections, and yes, flipping votes in machines. We have all been manipulated and misled by the Deep State. They control everything from politics, religion, economy and your social life. We truly are living in the Matrix. Our President, Donald Trump, will ensure our country and our freedom are rightfully returned, so we can continue to lead the world as the beacon of light and hope for all.

  11. You must be very naive. Biden and Harris lied all through their campaign. You will see in a few months and then it will be to late. If Trump runs in 2024, I will be voting for him, and a lot more people will remember what Biden and Harris have done to try and destroy our freedom.

  12. He had already said he was leaving but he has a chip on his shoulder and that is very unprofessional of him to do the president of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THAT WAY. Paul Mitchell lied to his constituents and that does not speak very well of him. He is showing his weakness instead of his strengths for the party for which he ran to go to congress. That is very lame of him to do that to his people.

  13. Some fraud????? What about all of the witness testimony that have been reported. You must have been a mole all of the time that you claimed to be conservative. I was a teacher in high school for 18 years, and when a student cheated on a test the grade was zero, nada, and a note in the students record. ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CHEATING!!!!
