Why The Repugs Circle The Wagons Around Trump And Protect Him - My Theory.....

We've seen it countless times when Trump says, tweets or does something stupid that the Repugs come out in support of him and always give him the benefit of the doubt.

One would have thought that this Russian collusion and Comey firing would have been the last straw for them yet we've heard them support Trump through his latest foibles.

Why do they do this? Why don't they cross him and call for a special prosecutor or an independent investigation.

Well here's my theory.


Think about all the inside information that Trump was privy to with respect to the Repug Party. Stuff that he learned during the primaries and stuff he learned - their strategery (a Dubya term) - as he became the nominee and then president.

He's had conversations and been in meetings with all the Intelligensia up and down the Repug Party. His fellow primary contenders. The Chairman of the RNC. Speaker of the House. Majority Leader of the Senate. Senators and Congressmen throughout the Party. Repug Governors. Retired Emeritus Repugs. Repug Think Tanks. Right Wing talking heads up and down the media.

Just think of all the inside information he was able to glean from them. All their dirty little secrets and strategies they use(d) against Obama, Hillary and the Dems.

Think about how he now can use all that inside info against them and blackmail them now.

Trump has them over the barrel? If he goes down or they try to take him down - he'll just spill the beans and take them down with him. Hell - he might even make things up about them and their tactics. He's been known to do that. He might even lie.

And you know what - his supporters (aka the Deplorables) will believe anything that comes out of his mouth and any explanations he gives them.

We've seen that display all through the primaries, election run-up and now as he is president.

Whatever inside info he has - if he uses it - will inflict untold damage unto the Repug Party. Even if he didn't have inside info and said he did and started making crap up - he would be believed by his supporters (which make up a sizable portion of the base of the Repug Party) and he would do further damage to the Party.

Perhaps that is why they circle the wagons around him and give him the benefit of the doubt as he systematically works to destroy our government.

I believe that Trump has the potential to wipe out the Repug Party and all their jobs going forward. They embraced him. They took him into their confidence and we all know that it isn't beneath Trump to use what he learned against them. When backed into a corner - Trump will attack back like a rabid dog. It's his pattern. He'll do anything to save himself or convince himself that nothing is his fault. Everyone else is to blame.

This is why they lie for him to protect him even if it makes each and every one of them that do this personally look bad.

That's my theory and I'm sticking to it!!!!!

2. Well, he does spy on his employees.

Trump Tower is probably bugged to the max - definitely a possibility.He does have a thing about "wiretapping". Hell , Mar-a-Lago could be one big blackmail/extortion racket.

3. Republicans/Conservatives

Control everything right now as long as that continues they will also have a lock on SCOTUS in the not too distant future. They are very close to being able to undo every progressive step the US has taken since FDR.

Once the first domino falls more will follow...they will defend trump to the very end to protect their power.

4. It's much simpler than that: Trump has the pen to sign their destructive legislation.

5. It's simpler than that: tRump personally colluded with the Russians

and that collusion helped Rs win in down-ticket races as well.

Mitch McConnell was also up to his neck, personally colluding with the Russians.

If tRump goes down, they all go down, because they were all in on the Russian collusion.

If one goes down they all go down?
