You know, I still don’t expect them to do the right thing, but the idea that Trump might actually trust Senate Republicans to protect him is still kind of funny to me:

During a Thursday meeting with White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, a group of Republican senators including Mike Lee of Utah, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Ted Cruz of Texas, spoke about how a Senate trial should be conducted if the House votes to impeach Trump.

After what he did to Graham and Cruz in 2016, he shouldn’t expect loyalty from them. And hell, let’s be honest, every one of them probably wants to be president on some level.

One GOP lawmaker told CNN that right now conversations are happening to temper the expectations of the President as to what is possible. The case being made is that a full trial provides the President with the ability to clear his name and, the lawmaker notes, cutting off the process early could make it look like he has something to hide.

Definitely want to trust them, Donnie.
