Republicans denied “quid pro quo” until they were forced to admit the truth. The sad thing is, they don’t care. Once again, Trump is allowed to violate the Constitution without condemnation by his party. They have become the enemies of the American people and reject any part of the Constitution with which they disagree.
Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, told reporters he wouldn’t even bother to read any of the transcripts, Sondland’s reversal included. “I’ve written the whole process off,” Graham said. “I think this is a bunch of B.S.” Ignorance sure is bliss when the leader of your party is G-U-I-L-T-Y of the very quid pro quo you once said was a red line.
GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell assured reporters that if the vote were held today, “it would not lead to a removal” of Trump.
Iowa Senior Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa: “What difference does it make? This is all out in the public, with the [summary] the president put out two or three months ago. It doesn’t make any difference what anybody else said.”
What they are all admitting is that Trump is above their law, but they are denying the only important fact; Trump is not above the Law of the Land; the Constitution. House Democrats are not choosing to impeach Trump; they are required to remove a president who abuses his or her power. Trump has committed this crime more than two-dozen times in just two years, nine months, and 16 days. When his party gave him a free pass and ignored the damning Mueller report, Trump obviously believed that he could get away with anything. If winning an election by colluding with a foreign nation worked once, why not try it again? This is what he attempted with Ukraine President Zelensky. But, this time, he’s not getting away with violating the Constitution.
This article is the complete truth, and please help me ensure that all real Americans read this. Most of you are aware that I decided to boycott Facebook because they have chosen to accept money in exchange for advertising by Trump’s campaign staff, although they know everything is a lie. Thank you.
