Republican Mike Turner (No, not that Republican Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, or Mike) made a ridiculous attempt at excusing Trump’s breach... but frankly, I wouldn’t put it past any of them. They all have to keep up with Trump's shifting explanations, which can be tough as few are as shifty as Donald Trump. Fewer seem to be as stupid as well, or at least less eager to promote their ignorance. No one yet has volunteered to recite Trump-blessed SCI on the House floor. Even Gym Jordan is hushed.
Republicans are finding rifts in their schisms, where different flavors of sociopaths can’t associate, and one grift’s graft is too good for the other’s flimflammery. Trump’s threats begin to shrivel away into timid whines when his faithful ghost him. No one is above the law, and outside of his heinous crimes Donald Trump is fast becoming no one. Lindsey Graham also tried to be above the law, and found he wasn’t allowed up there either.
In hindsight, Britain might have handled things differently as well.
