Before Republicans start hurling themselves into the deep abyss between our two party political system, I hope they will remember something: Trump’s abuse of power, lies, deceptions and cover-ups do not have to define the GOP anymore.
A whistleblower complaint against the president is now undergoing an impeachment investigation. Despite Trump’s lies that it’s just another partisan witch hunt, we now know it is indeed credible, (believed to be true) and of urgent national concern requiring immediate action.
The complaint identifies how Trump, his personal “fixer” attorney Giuliani and U.S. Attorney General Barr all worked together on a scheme to allegedly withhold hundreds of millions of dollars from a foreign country until the leader of that country agreed to “play ball” and reopen a closed investigation involving Trump’s 2020 political rival Joe Biden. Of course, such a scheme to affect the outcome of the 2020 presidential election is illegal.
What’s most disturbing is how Trump’s staff immediately removed electronic “telcon” evidence of this crime from the original hard drive and transferred it to a classified facility after becoming aware of the complaint. Trump’s White House is apparently nothing more than a crime syndicate using taxpayer money to cover up Trump’s many crimes.
Also of great interest is the whistleblower’s claim that there are several other people who can confirm these criminal allegations against Trump.
Republicans haven’t accepted Trump’s criminal actions concerning obstruction of justice from the Mueller investigation while ignoring numerous other arrests for lying and attempted election tampering.
Conservative Republican religious leaders ignore Trump’s over 12,000 lies all violations of the 9th commandment. They didn’t care when a delusional narcissistic Trump falsely claimed to be a religious deity, the King of Israel who somehow spends every Sunday on a resort golf course instead of worshiping God.
Fiscally conservative Republicans all brag on Trump’s economy despite looming recession red flags from tariffs and deficits, and despite $2 multi-billion socialist bailouts for farmers, and a multi-billion dollar money grab from the military budget to build Trump’s border wall that he falsely promised Mexico would pay for.
During the Trump impeachment hearings it will get ugly when the truth rises and moves forward. I think it will bring Republicans to their knees and will actually restore the lost soul missing from the Trump GOP cesspool.
Just remember through it all — this is democracy. This is how it works and we’re all proud to be Americans.
