Several Republicans are castigating Trump and even pushing for impeachment now.
Others in the GOP, however, are still hesitant, even as their own constituents are making it plain to them that they are unhappy. The GOP’s supposed ‘loyalty’ to Trump, and the groundless hesitation to move heavy into investigations into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, doesn’t appear to be for party benefit, but instead it’s to shield themselves from being implicated .
A leading Democratic pundit, Scott Dworkin, has unveiled a few Republicans who have taken money from Russian donors. These GOP’ers include John McCain, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. Even recently, Mr. Dworkin found much more evidence of Russia-Republican ties. And he has outed another big name Republican: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

The bigger news was that it wasn’t just McConnell who received aid from pro-Putin backers. Surprisingly, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker also pocketed money from them:

In April of this year, it was also shown that Speaker Paul Ryan was securing campaign funds from Russia sources. Every time these ties are revealed, Republicans are going to be made to choose between the GOP, Russia, or the USA.
So far…..it looks like they’re opting for Russia.
