"Republicans Set Up 3 Fall Guys for Trump" Is this the next step in the GOP defense of Trump?

“House Republicans’ latest plan to shield President Trump from impeachment is to focus on at least three deputies —

Ambassador Gordon Sondland, Rudy Giuliani, and possibly acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney — who they say could have acted on their own to influence Ukraine policy.”

    This at least is an actual defense of Trump on the facts.  This is basically what Nixon's people argued through most of Watergate.  Obviously, a bunch of guys trying to bug the Democrats was bad, but the Nixon administration argument was that these were just some overzealous Nixon supporters who went too far.  This argument held for a while until it became clear that Nixon knew all about what was going on.  This argument is trickier to make with Trump because we have him on the transcript taking part in the pressuring of Ukraine.

    Actually, that might be good for the Democrats. When Trump's on trial in the Senate he'll have to testify (unless he "takes the Fifth"). Even if he doesn't testify, the facts will be out there for all of America to see, even if twenty GOP senators don't vote to convict. 

    Next November, with his crippled candidacy, he'll have trouble taking SOUTHERN states, let alone purple ones.

    Sounds a lot like the Obama administration, doesn't it?

    Any one who was in on the call and did not speak out is in deep trouble.  They will need lawyers to defend them as accessories and will be lucky to avoid time behind bars.

    Trump admitted his guilt. Nothing else is relevant.

    You got nothing and everyone knows it. You don't have the votes in the House, much less the 2/3 in the Senate.

    But yeah.....you might try to go after them to get around that. Problem is you don't have the same idiots in charge at Justice....and they are about to do something with those criminal referrals from a month ago that the press didn't want to talk about

    The Don thinks these tactics makes him untouchable.

    You and your inner circle are at risk.

    They better start worrying more about themselves.

    They are gonna have a lot to answer for and lie about. How they didn't know and didn't come forward on all this corruption swirling around the WH.

    The only one guilty of any crime is Joe Biden.  The rest is smoke and mirrors. Wise up, the dems don't have your back and will sell you out just like they did Epstein and Weinstein.
