1. I think a lot of Republicans would turn on him in heartbeat given a tangible, proven crime...

And not some nebulous and novel obstruction of justice charges like in the Mueller letdown.

4. That's a joke, right?

I hope. Because the Republicans are known for "party first." They are very much in lock step, and they very much follow their leader, and they vote the party line almost always, even if they don't like the candidate. They also vote reliably. That's how they win so many elections (as well as gerrymandering, shutting down polling places, and voter restriction). The Democrats can be all over the place.

6. While VarryOn didn't use the "sarcasm" smilie...

...the "tell" that it was a joke was "friends across the aisle".

5. People think Barr is saving Trump,but I believe that is the incorrect view of what stage Republicans

are at now. They're at the Save the GOP stage, and Barr is on cleanup for THEM, not so much Trump. I believe that 2020 may well be a wipeout for them, and they know it, unless they can spread the shit as much as possible. Rick Wilson mentioned a few weeks ago that his Republican contacts are saying to prepare for a lot of retirements in the lead up to 2020, as they know what's coming.

7. Is there a website: Repub Senators Willing To Go Against McConnell To Impeach?

A few random Repubs will not help. It will take some senators. So far, McConnell has them all in lockstep.

9. The Way To Get The Repug Senators To Go Against McConnell Is To.....

have a revolt by grassroots Repug voters against Trump. There are approximately 19 months between now and Nov 2020 for a grassroots revolt of Repug voters to develop.

That's a lot of time for Trump to continue to screw up and do insane things to piss off grassroots Repug voters against him. During that period the Dems are going to make some headway with respect to Oversight investigations. They will parade some of Trump's minions in front of the American People and eventually get the People to understand the detail outlined in Mueller's Report.

So today there may be a few random Repugs voicing their opinions on a Repugs For Impeachment website or twitter feed - but like a snowball rolling downhill we got a lot of distance between now and Nov 2020 for a movement to develop.

I think I'm going to maintain an optimistic attitude on this to happen.

11. "... revolt by grassroots Repug voters against Trump"?

Well, I know a few revolting Repug voters.

It would be nice to defeat McConnell, but he seems to have a good hold on that seat. He probably gets a bit of help from China.

Hopefully, we can install a Democratic Senate Majority Leader in 2021.

If they can't show it to you - then it doesn't exist.

10. it was trending on Twitter a week or two back

A pretty good amount of Republicans, but also amplified by some prominent left leaning Twitter personalities.
