Did i read this correctly: "When you take on the swamp, the swamp fights back"


The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump seemed like it would have massive implications when it took place ― somehow only ― earlier this year. But among Trump’s most fervent supporters, it has served as a rallying cry. At the Republican National Convention this week, for example, speakers repeatedly brought up that their presidential candidate was nearly thrown out of office over corruption.
Rather than shirking away from the fact that Trump was one of only three U.S. presidents to be impeached, Republicans flaunted it to proclaim the president is perpetually and unfairly under attack.

“When you take on the swamp, the swamp fights back,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who has served in Congress since 2007, said Monday in a speech. “They tried the Russia hoax, the Mueller investigation, and the fake impeachment. But despite this unbelievable opposition, look what this president has accomplished.”

Sounds like an admission of guilt to me, calling your party the swamp?

1. I think he meant that the impeachment

was "the swamp" attacking their illustrious leader.

If there was a "swamp" or "deep state" in opposition to this president, his tax returns would have been leaked years ago.
