Mike Murphy, a Republican election consultant

“Mike Murphy, a Republican election consultant, recently remarked that

“one Republican senator told me if it was a secret vote, 30 Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump.”

Everyone understands that Mr. Trump is wildly popular with conservative voters, and that Senate Republicans would rather not invite primary challengers by alienating them. But when the legitimacy and preservation of our democracy are at stake, striving to keep a Senate seat safe through craven betrayal of the American people could come at a catastrophic price to the country.”
