Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Ex-Ethics Chief Roasts Trump-Defending Republicans With A List Of Future Quotes”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Walter Shaub, the former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, on Friday called out Republican lawmakers who continue to stump for President Donald Trump.

Shaub used a Twitter thread to imagine the future quotes and reelection slogans of GOP senators who staunchly support the president or are remaining silent amid the impeachment inquiry over the Ukraine scandal.

“Though he never publicly condemned the president’s actions, historians note that his draft folder was overflowing with pointed remarks,” read one of Shaub’s tweets. Said another: “Before settling on ‘I was with you in spirit’ as her reelection slogan, her team floated ‘Off-the-record objections count’ and ‘What matters is I knew better.’”

The issue isn't just whether Trump's past conduct was wrong. He continues to use the levers of power to try to rig our election, the thing that makes us a republic. The question that "Republican" Senators will answer with their vote is whether they want to live in a republic.
