You know, it surely seems odd, all these

KGOPers “not seeking re-election” I mean certainly the writing is on the wall regarding the political climate they are in with the majority of their constituents that they have shafted, still, it is as if they are getting legal advice to step down NOW. Or, perhaps they are being otherwise advised that it would be in their best interest to exit due to the possibility of accountability in some circumstances they may have been involved in, hypothetically speaking of course. Either way, and whatever is driving these departures, I don’t believe for a second these 30+ Republicans would be leaving on their own. I mean, no way, they just decided nonchalantly for no serious reason to leave in droves. It’s as if their hands are tied or they’re being somehow convinced to go NOW. Something and/or someone behind the scenes is working to motivate these resignations.

What a curiosity this is.

2. I suspect they have internal polling

that shows them getting hammered from the right, the left, or most likely, both sides.

3. If they think they can side-step the investigation into conspiracy or taking foreign monies

by leaving office, they still committed the crime and if caught will do the time.

4. I agree with you, leaving office is no solution for

them. I wonder if there is some motivating force driving these departures in a way that “weakens the beast” for lack of a better phrase.
