Surveying the wreckage of the Republican Party beneath Trump, we do properly to keep in mind that the GOP has declined to confess the legitimacy of any Democratic president for the reason that 12-12 months reign of Reagan-Bush. Clinton was hounded from his first day in workplace with frivolous claims of scandal till they lastly cornered him mendacity about sexual escapades. (Check out “The Hunting of the President” [2004] for particulars.) As quickly as Mitch McConnell bought into energy, he vowed to dam Barak Obama’s complete agenda and defied the Constitution in refusing to grant hearings to Obama’s ultimate Supreme Court nominee. Anticipating Hillary Clinton’s second run for president, Republicans performed countless, fruitless investigations into Bengazi, admitting their solely goal was to harm her election probabilities, whereas they turned her e mail server right into a nationwide scandal for a similar cause.

Now that Trump has pushed these traits into full-blown lawlessness and treason, everybody however Vladimir Putin is wringing their palms and wishing for a return of the Grand Old Party. No thanks! From Watergate to Russia-gate, Republicans have been constantly unscrupulous of their mania for energy. Trump has not stolen the soul of the Republican Party; he has merely laid it naked. Don’t trouble to rename this occasion, simply want it a fast and merciful loss of life. Another conservative occasion will rise from the ashes. God grant it a conscience.
