26. Repubs rushed to support Nixon also. His approval

ratings soared while under investigation because of it. It was known that opening an investigation into Trump-Russia would have the same effect. Right wing media are trumpeting that this phony attack on the president they elected is an attack on democracy itself.

So yes to all, but they have another pattern, of turning on leaders who turned out to be weak, instead of strong, losers instead of winners. Right now he not only could shoot someone in the street and have 40 million people angrily claim it's a Democratic lie, but he can also betray them directly by trying make mandated coverage for preexisting conditions unconstitutional. For now.
