My total lack of evidence proves my case!

Senate Republicans havenít yet said how they plan to handle President Trumpís trial, but on Wednesday they gave us some clues.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Ted Cruz (Tex.) and others brought in the Justice Departmentís inspector general, Michael Horowitz, to ask him about his report on the FBIís 2016 probe of the Trump campaign, which delivered unwelcome news for the conspiracy crowd.

The report found serious errors, worrisome abuses and dubious policies, but it also found that investigators didnít tap Trumpís phones, plant an informant at his campaign, entrap his advisers or execute any of the other conspiracy theories Trump and his defenders floated. To the contrary, Horowitz found no evidence of political bias and concluded that the probe had a legitimate purpose and factual, legal basis.

So Republicans settled on a creative approach: They simply disregarded Horowitzís findings.

1. No evidence will sway this Republican Caucus.

That can't, without implicating themselves. My advise to Republicans? Hang with your savaior, Donald Trump. You are at the end of the line and this is what you are reduced to. Carrying Donald Trump's sacred water.

2. Standard operating procedure

Republicans are experts at ignoring evidence.

Thatís why the say evolution and climate change arenít real. That tax cuts balance budgets.

Republicanism has stood for denial of evidence for decades

3. Hannity is taking a victory lap as I type this. Says everything he accused the Dems of is true.

He's grinning into the camera and saying "I told you so. All along I have been right about everything". His guests are busy slapping him on the back.

That's right. The Mueller Report, that detailed 272 Trump campaign contacts with Russian assets, the Horowitz Report showing the Feds had legitimate grounds for investigation, the public confessions of the President and his cronies, the 35 indictments and the five (so far) prison sentences handed down.

Ad it all up using Republican math, and it equals total exoneration for Trump.

Obstruction and conspiracies work, if you have enough soldiers willing to take a bullet for the Leader.
