Republicans, with the surprise exception of Sen. Liz Cheney, went after a war hero - Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman - because he was making Trump look bad yesterday.
The truth hurts.
After Vindman's Testimony , Right-Wing Conspiracies Fired Up
Especially if you're a Republican lawmaker these days. Trying to defend the indefensible actions of Trump is impossible, so most have gone into the silence mode.
Not all, however. One of the biggest assholes in The House, Devin (DUI) Nunes, tasked his top aid - Derek Harvey - to "out the whistleblower." A number one priority for a vengeful Trump.
Harvey has been spreading notes around for Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee identifying the whistleblower's name. The plan is to get the whistleblower's name in the proceedings which the Democrats have pledged to release.
The ultimate reason for publicly exposing the whistleblower is so Trump can get his revenge against him/her. At this point, there's no need to get the whistleblower's testimony, facts supporting the claims have been pouring in weekly.
Nevertheless, House Republicans went out of their way yesterday to change the topic to help Trump. Both parties got into a heated shouting match when Chairman Adam Schiff accused Republicans of trying to out the anonymous whistleblower.
What are these Republicans hoping for by exposing the whistleblower's identity? An "atta boy" from Trump who will go out of his way to destroy the person? Is it really worth that?
I guess these spineless Republicans will see, as this inquiry moves forward and becomes history.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
