The impeachment hearings have revealed that a good number of these men will avoid speaking of what role they had to play and many will flush their culpability down the memory hole.
Our worthless media complex can’t quit these people. They’ll get work if they can figure out how to be good on TV. It’s a shame.
Watching the Republicans behave during these hearings has been an exercise in watching human beings deny the very facts that they are being presented. They are not being willfully ignorant. They are hearing facts and processing them in a way that turns them into soup when they come out as words. It’s despicable and ridiculous at the same time.
I thought that some of them would be swayed, but that hasn’t been the case. I thought that some of them would just disappear and refuse to participate in order to avoid having to engage with the evidence. But, no. They’ve been ducking out whenever possible, but, really, they just can’t admit that their side is on the side of the Russians and the criminals that Russia put in power in this country.
During the “war,” which is best understood to be an American Interregnum, wherein the country was in the hands of a kleptocracy run by a shit-stained, incompetent petty crook and his idiot kids, these men helped Russia destroy our democracy. They’ll find a way to explain it away, but they’ll never wash the stain from their hands. They’ll stumble through lives like pariahs and no decent person should ever associate with them ever again.
