We have told you before about “Republican” strategist David Kochel. Kochel has been an integral part of the Branstad-Reynolds machine. He was Mitt Romney’s top Iowa guy. He targeted Congressman Steve King for years. He lobbied for legalized homosexual marriage for years before it happened. Before Joe Biden and Barack Obama got on board, even.

Four years ago he proclaimed himself a Never Trumper. He has gone so far as to suggest Trump coordinated with Putin and it was “maybe treasonous.”

He is the kind of “Republican” every conservative warns fellow Republicans about.

What’s worse is this is the kind of “Republican” Kim Reynolds, Joni Ernst, Ashley Hinson, Randy Feenstra and Mariannette Miller-Meeks will listen to. He has been deeply entrenched with Reynolds and Ernst and was one of the biggest cheerleaders for Hinson, Feenstra and Miller-Meeks.

He is the type of Republican who just absolutely loathes President Donald J. Trump and makes the GOP a lot more like the Democrat Party.


Now Kochel has moved on to mocking Sidney Powell and calling for President Trump to concede.
