    Republicans issue 123-page defense of Trump ahead of Democrats’ impeachment report

    Republicans issue 123-page defense of Trump ahead of Democrats' impeachment report | US news | The Guardian

    "The 123-page Republican report was prepared for Devin Nunes, Jim Jordan and Michael McCaul, the ranking members on the House intelligence, oversight and foreign affairs committees, respectively."

    Trying to coordinate partisan talking points is expected. Coordinating them with dishonesty is unfortunate. The strangest thing to me, though, is how Republicans have decided to preempt news with fabricated descriptions of events. They're publishing a dissent before the opinion gets issued, so to speak. It worked well enough with Barr/Mueller, so it looks like they're going to keep running the same play.

    It's disinformation to disrupt democracy. No other way to put it.

    They've got a formidable amount of discipline. What their story lacks in consistency from day to day it matches in being told consistently by Trump's surrogates at any given moment.

    It is disingenuous that none of you have read what has been drafted but already know its bad in whatever way. You are being led around and being told what to think about it before its available to the public.

    Are you referring to Trump supporters?

    Democrat Party = Criminally insane danger to Country & Constitution

    Republican Party = All that stands between the Democrat Party & the destruction of our society

    Devin Nunes = True patriot
    Those who must endlessly trash Trump are like the angry drunk looking for a bar fight - they're addicted to more than merely alcohol, but attention and adrenalin as well.

    Oh, ok. If the Guardian totally made up its article, I'll be sure to post a retraction on its behalf.

    They don't know, either. They are counting on anonymous leaks. You are letting someone else tell you what's there and what isn't. When even they don't know for sure.
