Benjamin Eric “Ben” Sasse (born February 22, 1972 (age 50)) is the junior United States Senator from Nebraska. He is a member of the Republican Party, and was elected in November 2014. Although he aligns with the Tea Party Movement at times, he aligns with liberals at others. Sasse serves on the Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs; the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs; the Joint Economic Committee; and the Special Committee on Aging.

U.S. Senate

In early March 2020, Sasse called for Attorney General William Barr to investigate Pornhub over its exploitation of sex trafficking victims.[1]

Sasse was one of only five GOP senators in late January 2021 to join all Democrats in voting against an amendment introduced by Rand Paul that would declare the second sham impeachment attempt against Donald Trump to be unconstitutional.[2]

In August 2021, he and Sen. Pat Toomey were the only two RINOs to join the other 28 Republicans to vote against the partisan "infrastructure" bill (HR 3684). [3]

Political views

Sasse refused to endorse Republican Donald Trump for U.S. president even after he became the GOP nominee, and he spoke highly of liberal Representative John Lewis.[4]

Sasse is a globalist who has been obsessed with opposing President Trump. Sasse even sends out childish tweets an a futile attempt to undermine Trump.[5] Sasse is also a Koch puppet who endorsed the pet project of the Kochs, the Convention of States.[6]

Favoring neoconservative policies, Sasse opposed Trump's move in mid-November 2020 to pull U.S. troops from the Middle East.[7]
