It was the GOP that wanted him, and they defend him to the hilt, even in the face of overt law-breaking, and a general attitude of lawlessness.
Republicans have put party over country, and theyd be happy as pigs in shit if their one-party rule never ended. THEY ARE THE ENEMIES OF DEMOCRACY, and need to be voted OUT.
It will take some time and serious resolve, as Republicans have never taken a break from their compulsive power accumulation, in small offices and large. Theyve been chipping away at bedrock American principles since Richard Nixons presidency.
Ive been a proud Democrat since age 21 (couldnt vote in a general election until age 23), and in all that time, Ive realized that Democrats major weakness is long-standing: EXPECTATIONS.
Expectations of fair play, transparency, adherence to the law, truthfulness, inclusion, mutual cooperation, etc. Conversely, Republicans want none of this, Its all-or-nothing with them. There is no gambit, no ploy, no smear, no false accusation thats too low for them. They are long-standing, masterful practitioners of garbage politics. And sadly, its often effective.
Republicans in 2019 are to America as the Nazis were to Germany in 1933; sad to say, theres no hyperbole in that statement. And thats why impeachment proceedings NOW are a must, as a free and fair 2020 election (and its aftermath) isnt a sure thing with the current configuration of power in Washington and Moscow.
