In the light of Trump allegedly trying to obstruct the FBI from investigating his campaign’s ties to Russia, firing James Comey, and giving classified information to Russia, the calls to impeach The Donald should have flooded over to the Republicans in Congress.
Remember how they investigated Hillary Clinton over her emails and Benghazi? If Mrs. Clinton had so much as farted during a meeting with Russian diplomats, Republicans would have written up articles to impeach her before staffers could have cleared the air with a can of Febreze.
Can you imagine if Hillary Clinton had been elected instead, and gave Russia top-secret intel we received from the Mossad? Republicans have made being an ally of Israel, even to the point of overlooking human rights violations, a central part of the platform for years. Remember the Russia reset button that they mocked her for when she was Secretary of State? Giving Moscow information that our greatest ally in the Middle East, who is an adversary of Russia, is far worse than that diplomatic effort when Putin was not in power.
Despite all of this, Trump supporters are still screaming “fake news” at every media report concerning Trump, even when he confirms that he gave intel to Russia.
After news of Trump’s revelations broke Monday, Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican and chairman of the Foreign Relations committee, said the White House is in a “downward spiral.”
“Obviously they’re in a downward spiral right now and they’ve got to figure out a way to come to grips with all that’s happening,” Corker told reporters in Washington. “And the shame of it is, there’s a really good national security team in place…but the chaos that is being created by the lack of discipline is creating an environment that I think makes — it creates a worrisome environment.”
A spokesman for House Speaker Paul Ryan said that “we have no way to know what was said, but protecting our nation’s secrets is paramount.”
“The speaker hopes for a full explanation of the facts from the administration,” said Doug Andres, Ryan’s spokesman. (Buzzfeed)
Paul Ryan has spent his career in Congress edging his way towards the presidency. Now that it is almost within his grasp, he doesn’t have the balls to rally his fellow Republicans against Trump, and become the new leader of the GOP.
Remember what he said about Hillary Clinton and her emails? No? Here is his Twitter post from last year.

Republicans don’t want to stand up to Trump and impeach him, because they are deathly afraid of his supporters. They are terrified for their own careers under The Donald when the country turns against him, and everyone who has enabled this fraudulent presidency.
The GOP is between a rock and a hard place, because they could be replaced by liberal lawmakers in swing districts, or candidates even further to the right than they are now in areas that haven’t progressed beyond the era of the KKK.
Just think, we could have had a taco truck on every corner. Instead, we have a new national security scandal every morning. Good job, America.
You believed there was a child sex ring in the basement of a pizza place with no basement but you can’t see the Trump/Russia connection. K.
