Hear No Evil, See No Evil and Speak Not of Impeachment

("Donald Trump's High Crimes and Misdemeanors")

Where is there a hint of courage in the Republican party? Donald Trump has gone on a vitriolic rampage from his first day in office, destroying the integrity of his station, the standing of our nation, the very understanding of what constitutes truth, yet the only resistance from his side of the aisle has come from the nearly departed (Mr. McCain) or the nearly departed (Mr. Flake). 

There is no evidence to suggest his party will now grow a political backbone despite the seemingly incontrovertible evidence of Mr. Trump being a co-conspirator in an act which was a clear attack against the very heart of our electoral process.

It is in the cover-up, stupid, whether it be Mr. Nixon, Mr. Clinton, Mr. Edwards or now Mr.Trump, all attempting to conceal one wrong by committing another.

The sad reality is that, as much as Mr. Trump lies, numbers don't. Between now and November, the Republicans will surely not rise en masse to bring Articles of Impeachment. 

And even if the House falls into Democratic hands in the mid-terms and impeachment results, conviction with the requisite votes in the Senate is a pipe dream unless it becomes politically unsustainable for Republicans to continue their deaf, dumb,and blind allegiance to the king.

Hear no evil, see no evil and speak not of impeachment. Welcome to today's Republican party.

Well done. But Nixon never even came close to the crimes committed by Trump. And there are no members of Congress, or any people in his administration willing to stand up and say, “Mr. President, it is time to go.


(my PS - HL has the lead letter in the NY Times today - congratulations to him (as always) for a job well done
