Moscow Mitch and his Republican Senate received big donations from Trump defense team


We know Republicans are corrupt from the top down and there is no reason to believe this isn't true for the impeachment trial. Members of Trump's legal team made several contributions to key Senate Republicans last year just before joining the president's legal team. Here's the scenario...
"Former independent counsels Ken Starr and Robert Ray, who both investigated former President Bill Clinton ahead of his impeachment, contributed thousands of dollars to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell last year before they joined the president’s team, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics (CFPR)."
This reflects on McConnell's statement he would be in, “total coordination with the White House counsel’s office and the people who are representing the president in the well of the Senate.” Moscow Mitch followed this with...
“Everything I do during this, I’m coordinating with the White House counsel. There will be no difference between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this.”
If that isn't a payoff, I don't know what is. Starr's $2,700 contribution to Lindsey Graham in 2017, apparently cinched up the fact...
"Graham has been one of the most ardent Trump defenders in the Senate and previously pushed for Republicans to dismiss the impeachment charges against Trump without a trial."
Conversely, "Sekulow, White House counsel Pat Cipollone and deputy White House counsel Patrick Philbin all also gave thousands to Sen. Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign," while Romney is one of the most outspoken Republicans to voice support for witnesses. Go figure. And Trump did do some fundraising for suck-up Republicans, but he did snub Susan Collins, R-Maine, who has said she may be open to witnesses.

The whole thing does come down to what I said in the beginning, 'We know Republicans are corrupt from the top down and there is no reason to believe this isn't true for the impeachment trial.' I know many are asking this same question, will this country ever be free of this kind of sordid GOP politics? At this point, I would question the possibilities.   READ MORE...
