i put up a quick poll on Twitter


I think some of the Republicans in congress are in it hook, line, and sinker, while others (Mitch McConnell) are simply feckless, greedy fucks who don't believe in democracy.

just saw a clip of Nunes catapulting the Ukraine interfered in 2016 bullshit.

and i realized, if that was true, they failed.

they also keep harping on the fact that the investigations demanded by trump never happened and that Ukraine did get the aid (in the nick of time). this supposedly clears trump of any impeachable crime.

so by their logic, there's nothing to investigate as far as Ukraine and 2016. which of course is just an outlandish conspiracy theory hatched by Paul Manafort and pushed by Giuliani as some sort of plausible deniability story to cover their crimes.
