The straw that broke the camel's back?

Individual-1's unilateral decision to pull troops out of Syria without informing the Pentagon or Congress - and obviously at the behest of Putin - may turn the tide with a good many Republicans.

Impeachment and removal from office may now be on the table with them.

3. I don't think there will be any one straw

But we need to hammer away on things like this, get the public used to the idea that Trump's an irresponsible, reckless madman who's not good for the country. Have people in turn put pressure on their elected representatives (and especially on Republican Senators - we're going to need at least 20) to start moving ahead on impeachment, conviction, and removal from office. We can't sit back and wait for it to "just happen." It doesn't work that way.

2. I'm not so sure. Like Trump, Putin probably has kompromat on a bunch of them

to keep them in line.

For example, I suspect there is a good chance Lindsay Graham will soften his stance on Syria ...

4. Lindsay appears to be in his pocket

I still think the strongest evidence of collusion with Russia (for those of us who don't work with Mueller) is the way Trump talks aout, and treats Putin/Russia. I think Graham's behavior is similarly evidence of some involvement, especially with the 360 he has pulled.

8. I've been watching the GOP since the 60s

They're pretty dug in on how they view issues.
It's really hard to get them to budge on anything.

To see one of them, like Graham, flip like he has ... there's something up.
They've got something on him like I think they do with Trump, Ryan, etc

6. Not like this. The US is entering a serious global crisis now and we look terribly weak.

There has to be point where enough is enough, even for a politician who has been hedging his bets.
