An observation about the Trump/GOP panic.

The GOP seems to be going to great lengths to protect Trump. This would actually seem normal on the surface. A party is going to stand up for it's own guy if he's in the WH. But, there is nothing "normal" going on...

Except for signing laws the GOP wants passed, the GOP has no use for Trump. He's obviously a problem, but he can be shoved out of the way whenever that becomes necessary.

I would say that many, many GOP members in the Senate, House, and even statehouses, could be implicated in the various investigations into the Trump crime spree. I suspect that an elected GOP member or members could have become a Russian asset. There is already info out there that the NRA was turned into a Russian asset. Clearly, right wingers other than Trump were/are involved. Michael Flynn was but one. This could blow a huge hole in the GOP, leaving a void for Progressives to fill. Even if a particular Senator is eventually found to have committed no crimes, their name will have already been dragged through the mud of the Trump sty enough to cause voters to turn away.

Just my $.02

1. I'm with you. IMO turtleman is dirty. Sessions, Flynn...

and all the other indicted ones. And then there are the quick exits of Ryan and before him, Chaffetz and all the rest who decided not to run for re-election in 2018.

Yep, a whole lot of those repugs are slime and it will come out.

2. they'll want to finish loading the courts before they stop protecting Trump

they still have some work left to do on that front, and they're fucking salivating at the thought of RBG leaving the bench. congresses and presidents come and go, but we're stuck with judges for a long long time.

3. You're forgetting their voters. They MUST have them.

Trump's approval rating HAS dropped on the right. It's now only about 80%, down from 90%.

And Trump was elected by their voters in the first place as a rebellion against their Republican leadership and the donor classes directing them. Incredibly stupid as that was, most are not so stupid they don't have some idea that their own people in congress are screwing them over.
