The Republican Party is complicit. The judgement of history will not be gentle nor kind to those in power who refuse to curb the lying pig we now have in the oval office. Those Republicans that shamefully continue protecting the president by refusing to honor their oath of office need to be treated like the traitors they have become. They will get the dishonor they deserve.
This is only too obvious when one looks at the present leadership of our country. The already legendary ignorance of the racist, self-avowed whore-monger in the White House is matched only by his fear, greed and intolerance. It is a volatile combination that is a true existential danger to the values on which our nation was founded.
Yesterday, when the House of Representatives voted to officially begin impeachment hearings on Trump, not a single Republican Congressperson voted in favor of the the hearings.
That speaks volumes as to their lack of values and to the greed, and to the fear that motivates them. None of us should forget they are all complicit in the crimes they are defending. At this point, they share the stench of the lying pig they are trying to protect.
