So the Republican strategy regarding impeachment is to refuse to cooperate. Sounds like Mitch and Steve and company have had their way. What I saw of the 8-page letter was vintage Stephen Miller, though maybe this is the way the whole party sounds now.
Maybe the plan is to poke holes in the process, to hide behind the excuse of this whole thing just being a case of partisan politics. No smoking guns, no collusion, no election interference, no nothing except one party playing the role of sore loser while the other tries to “work for the American people.”
Fine, as long as they realize that “the American people” they claim to be working for isn’t the robust block of support they’re always claiming it to be. They often seem to be ignoring the more substantial voting base who find it repulsive to be included in their boasting.
