So far, the Republican Party’s response to the indictment of President Trump is to use the event for fundraising.
Paul Craig Roberts
The Republican Party has a handful of members of leadership potential who have our country’s success at heart — Jim Jordan, Ron Thompson, Rand Paul, Ron DeSantis — but they are limited by the Republican Establishment, which is part of the same corrupt gang as the Democrats. When you see Senate Republicans clinging to Mitch McConnell as the Republican leader in the Senate, you know that there is no fight in the Republican Party. The Republicans are part of the problem.
Trump’s great failure is that he did not use his electoral support to create a new party and to terminate the useless Republican Party by moving the Republican vote to a party that actually represented the majority of American voters. Trump failed because he surrounded himself with Republican Establishment enemies who deserted him. I knew he was finished when he failed to stand by General Michael Flynn, former Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, who knew where all the bodies were buried and could have protected Trump had Trump had sense enough to appoint an Attorney General who was not his enemy.
Perhaps Trump has learned and no longer is a babe in the woods. But with a majority of Republicans in Congress happy to be rid of him, it is uncertain what Trump’s fate will be.
