No way. When he goes down, he's likely to take the rest of the GOP with him -- which could have a major impact for many years. Lindsey Graham actually predicted it three years ago.

The above is a misinterpretation of Graham's statement.  Graham was referring to the GOP losing the 2016 elections if they nominated Trump.  As we saw, Trump won and the GOP controlled the House and Senate as well as many state governments.  Therefore, Graham was proven wrong.

This statement does not apply to the 2020 elections.

Amb. John Bolton was a no-show for his impeachment inquiry deposition,
but today his lawyer sent a letter to Congress
 
saying he knows about “many relevant meetings and conversations” on Ukraine “that have not yet been discussed.”
 
So why the tease?

John Bolton has a book deal, publishing officials tell Associated Press

Once again, history will show that Graham's prophecy was right on target -- no matter when he tweeted it.

How can Bolton claim absolute immunity from testifying and then sell his story in a book?
 
Even facts are for sale in this administration.

Every Republican for himself: McConnell told senators in closed door meeting to come up with their own Trump defense

"........“McConnell told Republican senators their best bet was to calibrate their own message about the impeachment inquiry to fit their political situation, according to two people familiar with the private meeting who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the closed-door session,” HuffPost reports.

“But when it came time to broach what Republicans should say about impeachment, McConnell showed a preference for saying as little about it as possible.”

 

According to veteran GOP strategist Alex Conant, the lack of a unified message could prove to be disastrous for a party facing what is expected to be a contentious and high-turnout election in 2020.

“It’s not good. Normally you want to establish the facts, get them out on their own terms, and build a message around that strategy. They’re not doing any of that,”....

so the point is well taken.

Whistleblower smears, conspiracies and 'no quid pro quo':

The GOP impeachment theories, debunked

Some are laughably easy to disprove, some are disingenuous interpretations of facts and some are just conspiracy theories spun to give them a façade of respectability.

Rep. Peter King is the 16th member of the House GOP not seeking reelection,

reflecting a massive shift in the chamber under President Trump.

 
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) complained that we have “too many mosques” in this country,
said Eric Garner wouldn’t have died if he hadn’t been so “obese,”
whined about President Obama’s tan suit
and compared NFL players kneeling to “Nazi salutes.”
 
I’m glad he’s retiring.

GOP group presses Republicans to take impeachment hearings seriously

 
 
A Republican group is targeting House GOP lawmakers ahead of this week's public impeachment inquiry hearings, urging them to take the proceedings seriously. 
 
The 60-second ad from Republicans for the Rule of Law includes footage from the House Judiciary Committee's debate on articles of impeachment against then-President Nixon and shows three Republicans explaining why they voted for some or all of the articles. 
 
Rule of Law spokesman Chris Truax said in a statement that House Republicans should "study the lessons of Watergate very closely."

"The last time a Republican president faced impeachment, some House Republicans remembered that oath. They stood bravely to defend the Constitution and the American tradition of the Rule of Law. They’re remembered for their courage and integrity. History has not been kind to their colleagues who buried their heads in the sand and refused to acknowledge the facts," he added.
 
The House Judiciary Committee approved three articles of impeachment against Nixon, splitting Republicans on the panel. Nixon ultimately resigned before the full House voted on the articles of impeachment.
 
The outside group's ad will run Wednesday on "Fox & Friends"....

BREAKING: Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin conceded defeat Thursday, as a recanvass of last week’s election showed him still trailing Democrat Andy Beshear.

After nine days KY Gov. Bevin (R) has conceded to Beshear. Bevin, in a deep red state, doubled down on his ties to Trump but lost anyway - while Beshear stayed focused on local issues like health care, education and pensions. Possible omen for Nov. 2020
 
3:15 PM · Nov 14, 2019·Twitter Web App

A republican in a red State refusing to concede for over a week. Screaming voter fraud and demanding a recount. The GOP simply doesn't have what it takes anymore to find support among people who expect government to connect with the people, for the people and by the people.

The national projection for the GOP is hopeless. A party speaking only to one small minority demographic with little or no growth.

OMG -

@LindseyGrahamSC blocked a resolution in that Senate that passed in the House 405-11

condemning Armenian genocide, after meeting with Trump and Erdogan.

This is so deeply troubling, and happening in the light of day!

 

What is wrong with this man!

Impeachment Hearing Republicans Confirm There Is No Defense for Donald Trump -

And they’re continuing to make themselves and their party

an American abomination.

"....... Nunes and his fellow Republicans on the Intelligence Committee sought to indict the inquiry rather than to address the issues at hand.

Employing a litany of right-wing conspiracy theories and Internet-troll delusions, they offered the American people a powerful insight into determination to obstruct, undermine, and disparage any effort to hold the president to account. .....

House Republicans are refusing to fulfill the oath they swore to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” to “bear true faith and allegiance to the same,” and to “well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office.”

Nunes and his compatriots are doing precisely what Trump did:

placing a political agenda ahead of the national interest.......

GOP using Elise Stefanik in impeachment hearings because Jim Jordan has ‘zero credibility’ outside of Trump hardliners:

....because every time Jim Jordan speaks for the president, it just gives the Democrats an opportunity to remind the public that he has zero credibility and no shame, because Jim Jordan has been accused by seven people of covering up sexual abuse and ignoring sexual abuse of minors when he was at Ohio State,” said Dowdell. “So, I think that that’s another issue for them, which is why they had to bring out Congresswoman Stefanik, because their main spokesperson is Jim Jordan, and again, he’s only effective to those people who want to see someone yell and scream and those people are never going to believe anything the Democrats say.” ....

Republicans Urge Americans to Follow Them Through the Fox News Looking Glass on Ukraine

 

" Americans who do not get all of their information about Ukraine from Fox News or right-wing Twitter and Facebook feeds have no doubt been baffled by the Republican cross-examination of witnesses called to give public testimony in the House impeachment hearings. ........

There have been frequent, context-free references to something called “the black ledger,” invocations of the supposedly nefarious role of George Soros in supporting Ukrainian anti-corruption activists, and even suggestions that Donald Trump’s former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, who is serving seven and a half years in federal prison for financial crimes stemming from his work in Ukraine, might have been framed.

 

The resulting spectacle has confused viewers unfamiliar with a series of conspiratorial reports about Ukraine from the conservative columnist John Solomon, whose work has been promoted relentlessly on Fox, and caused many to simply tune the proceedings out.

Virginia Tilley, a political scientist at Southern Illinois University, suggested on Twitter that making the impeachment hearings nearly unwatchable might even be the Republican strategy....

"Scariest thing about our national crisis: lying GOP has made even impeachment hearing so repellent that few can bear to listen. They win by just **** us with inane babble, demoralizing the principled with shrieking stupidities.

Is this how democracy dies? Through BS fatigue? "   :blink:

 

.......... Behind all these lies there is an ugly truth. Under the guise of fighting corruption, the Trump administration and its Republican allies have thrown the full force of the United States government, and Fox News, into supporting a counter-revolution in Ukraine,

siding with corrupt oligarchs and former officials there who aim to discredit and suppress the reformers and anti-corruption activists ......."

McConnell predicts there will not be enough Senate votes to remove Trump-

In between public impeachment hearings, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell outlined what would happen when the impeachment process reaches the Senate. McConnell said he did not believe there would be enough votes to remove President Trump from office.
