In race against “Pocahontas,” some question GOP challenger’s honesty

Rebel Staff

In the current Massachusetts U.S. Senate race to unseat Elizabeth Warren, local Republican Geoff Diehl has been claiming he was the Co-Chair of the Massachusetts effort to elect Donald J. Trump.  

There's just one problem: Diehl was NOT the Co-Chairman of the Massachusetts effort to elect Donald Trump, a fact confirmed for me by Vincent DeVito, who chaired that campaign. 

Massachusetts GOP mega-donor Lloyd Thompson has urged Diehl to drop out of the race, stating that he’s made a number of untrue claims.

I reached out to various Massachusetts operatives and Trump volunteers who told me Diehl during the Trump campaign did "nothing."

Diehl himself, and his staff, declined to respond for comment on this story.

The race to unseat Elizabeth Warren is going to be a costly, uphill battle for any Republican candidate. Trump’s nickname for Warren, "Pocahontas,” refers to her own claims to be of American Indian descent.

For a candidate running against her, truthfulness and credibility will be an extremely important factor.

I dislike Liberals, however if I could change Elizabeth Warren’s thinking, I would love her on the Republican’s side. She is always working hard even on her time off. Bull horns at airports etc.; you see her giving speeches on Sundays. She is not a boring politician.

The guy sounds like a typical swamp critter – say anything or do anything for the ring – (oh my precious I must have you) another GOP gollum.

Red state Americans better wake up to the fact a lot of the GOP are swamp Orcs and they should understand these RINO Orcs are plotting with the Dem swamp and deep state to impeach their duly elected president.

They should be writing letters to these GOP Orcs reminding them that if they take part in the Dem assassination of this POTUS they will not be going back to their cozy congressional swamp after the next election.

I am not for lying politicians but what is worst here. A communist crazy Pocahonta supporting the corrupted Clinton crime family. Don’t try to be more catholic than the Pope. I support journalistic true reporting by the way, but you should show both sides of the equation to allow citizens to make an informed decision.

Yup. Yet another GOP, establishment hack who was only too happy to ride Trumps populist coat tails into office, only to then stab him in the back once in. Pathetic, but then again they are the lowest form of human life, politicians.

Thanks Jack, great report.
Diehl didn’t call back as he is still trying to figure out why he is being challenged about telling lies! He didn’t count on fact checkers and there would be evidence readily available to counter the veracity of his claims….in the information age, why are people still doing this?!
