Impeachment coup against Donald Trump

While initially opposed to the impeachment coup against Donald Trump,[2] Isakson betrayed conservatives by later saying that Trump committed a "hard quid pro quo".[3] However, he retired from the Senate before the Senate impeachment vote, citing Parkinson's disease and other health issues.[4]

Political views

Mostly conservative throughout his tenure in Congress, Isakson has strongly opposed abortion, ObamaCare, and illegal immigration.[5]
