McCain and The Trump Titanic on Impeachment Ground

The Trump Titanic: Created by the Senate Republicans
Now comes Senator John McCain, and slowly but surely the rest of his Republican colleagues, starring the Comey memos and the accumulation of outright lies, conflicts and treason  in the face.   He fears we are on impeachment ground the size and scope of Watergate. 

Well sure we are.  You put us there.  

You approved Sessions, Tillerson, Wilbur Ross and the rest of the rotten Transition Team's nominees knowing about their conflicts, having the intel you needed to vote 'no' on every one of them. All the Republicans did.  Did you do the right thing when it mattered most? No, you did not. 

Now you are saying things that you should have said in the confirmation hearings, McCain.  You surely knew about Kisylak, that old KGB spy, and Putin, the invader of Ukraine and friend of Assad, when you approved these guys.  You approved people who worked with the guy you knew was a "murderer and thug."  

America has had to face the consequences of your votes, and all your Republican colleagues' votes, ever since.  Millions of us knew it was only a matter of time before the truth was revealed and the shit hit the fan.

The resistance movement mounted. The women marched. The scientists and the environmentalist marched. The American people took to the streets. We followed the advice in the Indivisible handbook written by former Congressional staffers about contacting our elected officials.  We  started to make our voices heard, the majority of us common folk, outraged at what was happening in Congress.

How many calls did you and your fellow Senators get, flooding you with facts and warnings?  How many letters urging you to hear us out, knowing you were voting for DeVos, Tillerson, Ross, Pruitt, Price? How many emails and twitter and facebook posts, pleading with you, begging you, to do the right thing for America? How many petitions, dozens of them, signed by thousands?  

No matter.  You went ahead and voted for the worst nominees imaginable. You ignored our voices.  You went along and you did nothing.  

Do you know how helpless we felt in the face of your indifference.  Do you know how infuriating it is now to hear you say the things you are saying?  

Your mea culpas are needed, yes.  We knew we needed some Rs with a conscience to step up.  You didn't do it when you brought us the Trump regime.  We tried, to no avail.   Now you have to step up or go down with the Trump Titanic you created. You have to save your ass.  Now it's more a matter of self-interest than patriotism. 

We see it all. We will not forget that you created this monster.  We will not forget.
