'President Trump and the Republican Party are playing a dangerous game. If one side of the argument claims that crimes aren’t crimes and tells Americans not to believe their own eyes, the media cannot cover this as a legitimate political “strategy.”   It’s vitally important for the MSM to focus on the objectively corrupt conduct of Trump and not get tricked into giving undue credence to his lies, as the GOP now focus their fire on the identity of the whistleblower. When covering Trump and the GOP’s lies, there must be an effort to actively avoid falsely equating Democratic and Republican arguments. You can’t treat vindictive claims on the right that are based on blatant lies as equal to those on the other side.'

The only argument they had left was attacking the manner in which the investigation was taking place, since the actions Trump took were so blatantly impeachable. And now the whole country is going to find out exactly what he did.

So while calling for the impeachment proceedings to resemble a criminal trial may have been an appealing tactic for Trump's defenders, now that Democrats have acceded to their demands, Republicans have painted themselves into a corner. And with witnesses set to testify publicly on television in the coming weeks, it's more likely than ever that Senate Republicans will be pressured by their constituents into doing the right thing and removing Trump from office before it's too late."
