Truth is dead from the Republican Party! It may seem a light thing right now, indeed they all think they are smart, to absolve the guilty and try to frame opponents, but the end of the story will be very ugly for the Republicans. The death of truth in the Republican politics is the end of the party. No government can be sustained on lies, falsehoods, and deception--not even the United States government. It is going to come crashing down. There are fundamental issues that will lead to the demise of the GOP.
First, there are treacherous Republican agents of government, Senators, and Representatives from different districts who are in on the conspiracy against the United States. Why conspiracy? Because they are in a plot to subvert the government of the United States, by attempting to help one man perpetuate himself in office against the laws and constitution of the United States.
Secondly, this relates directly to the power Russia and Putin wield over the United States right now because the head of the United States government has been compromised, and his helpers aim to help him cover up the truth.
Third, the most important offices of the government of the United States are in on the conspiracy, and sadly, including the Department of Justice under the leadership of Bill Barr. The plot? To have Trump remain in power and by the privilege of the Oval Office settle his debt to Russia and to Putin, being the very basis of the problem. The entire Republican Party is in on this scheme and so they will defend Trump no matter what it takes. So, right now, the word integrity is dead to the GOP.
What makes McConnell's role crucial in this move? He is to ensure that nothing leaks of the massive amount of evidence against Trump by defending his side of the fort--the Senate--like he just did in the Senate impeachment trial. And he and the entire Republican Party, acting on behalf of Trump have the backing and support of Bill Barr, who is subverting the laws and constitution of the United States to aid Trump's re-election. Has anyone ever wondered why 'a private detective' in the name of Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, openly and illegally crossed the line, by asking a foreign nation to investigate a US citizen, and for no other reason except to help the Trump re-election campaign? Have you heard a word from Bill Barr on this? They are all in on the scheme and it is the death of the Republican Party.
