Senator Fetterman believes liberals and conservatives want him dead

 December 26, 2023

Wednesday, Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) expressed his belief that his liberal colleagues are plotting his demise via another blood embolism.

“What I have found out over the last couple years is that the right, and now the left, are hoping that I die. There are ones that are rooting for another blood clot. They have both now been wishing that I die,” Fetterman said in the interview with the New York Times, as The Daily Caller reported.

These statements are in continuation of Fetterman's public dispute with Democrats over support for Israel, his calls for more stringent border security measures in light of the ongoing crisis, and his requests for the resignation of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) subsequent to his indictment.

Previous Remarks

As reported by NBC, Fetterman stated earlier in December that he is "not a progressive" in response to a question regarding his differences with Democrats on contentious issues.

“I’m not a progressive,” Fetterman told NBC News. “I just think I’m a Democrat that is very committed to choice and other things. But with Israel, I’m going to be on the right side of that. And immigration is something near and dear to me, and I think we do have to effectively address it as well.”

Fetterman maintains his pro-Israel stance in the aftermath of the October 7th terrorist attacks by Hamas, despite growing opposition to the Gaza conflict and calls for an end to the Palestinian rights movement on the party's left flank.

While he believes it is "not ideal" to link such assistance with immigration policy, the senator told NBC News that a dialogue is necessary to reduce the number of border crossings.

Fetterman told NBC News, “Progressives better do that because we can’t leave Israel — we can’t sell them out, and we can’t sell Ukraine out, and we have to deliver on this. I just would very much like to get a deal to deliver this critical aid.”

Regarding His Fellow of Lawmakers

Likewise, his stance towards his fellow legislators has remained steadfast. Menendez's resignation has been called upon by the senator in light of the calamitous indictment that has befallen the New Jersey lawmaker.

Late in September, following Menendez's indictment on charges of bribery, fraud, and extortion related to the acceptance of gifts in exchange for influence in the upper chamber, Fetterman was the first senator to request his resignation.

Although Menendez declined these invitations, he did temporarily resign as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Santos was expelled two weeks subsequent to the revelation of "substantial evidence" by the House Ethics Committee that implicated the congressman in a violation of the law.

“He needs to go. I don’t understand why he can be here, having expelled Santos,” Fetterman told NBC News.

“But I’m sure there might be a very innocent explanation of having gold bars in your mattress and overstuffed envelopes of cash," he added.
