Rep. Devin Nunes is such a tool of the Trump Administration, the whole thing is an embarrassment to American democracy. It is completely bonkers that he would go to the White House and tell it super-secret revelations about…the White House.
Then he has the audacity to say, in general terms…and in private!…that has a sorry for what he had done. This is a prime example that the Republican Party is now so partisan that it would rather protect that potentially treasonous behavior of the president than look into the situation honestly. It’s all very surreal. It’s all very bizarre.
It’s because of the behavior of Rep. Nunes and his fellow Republicans that this scandal not only will grind one for years, it may very well do irrevocable arm to the American Republic. It could be years and God only knows how may amazing revelations before the Trump Administration starts to feel any heat. Right now, they are pretty insulated from any political damage connected to Trump’s collusion with the Russians because, well, Republicans are so surreal in their partisanship that they could care less.
This is all really horrible. What Trump is doing to America could, over the course of the next few years, stir up such epic forces that we will look back upon it with awe. We are pretty much engaged in a civil war of sorts, only of a political nature.
The Republican base is so partisan, so devoted to Trump and his bizarre world view, that I have come to believe even treason on his part won’t make him blink an eye. They just don’t care. All they care about is some of the core ideas of lower taxes, outlawing abortion and less regulation.
I really don’t have much faith in any of this. This is a dark time in American history. I just don’t think anything will happen to fix this problem for a long, long, time. We probably will be still talking about this in a year, if not two years.
That is kind of deep, I have to say.
