Morning Joe and an army of ex-Republicans just brutally hit their former party over Mueller hearing

A parade of Republicans for impeachment, many who have left the GOP because of Trump’s racism and lies, just took to Twitter to trash their former party’s complicity with Russia’s election interference schemes and defense of the president.


MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough used to be a GOP Congressman in the same conservative district currently represented by Florida man Matt Gaetz. Scarborough’s unequivocal condemnation of his former party went viral during the Mueller hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee, quickly racking up over six thousand retweets and over forty thousand likes.

Kurt Bardella is a former House Oversight Committee senior policy advisor to the GOP, who found his voice after switching to the Democratic party. He noted that the president engaged a blatant, public lie in the run-up to Mueller’s testimony today, which he belied by live-tweeting the hearing that revealed evidence of his criminal acts.

Bardella also took the time to debunk one GOP Congresswoman’s fatally false line of argument, a screed that didn’t even bother with a question for Mueller. That’s because any question she asked of the Special Counsel would have been self-defeating as the former GOP staffer explained.

US Naval War College and Harvard professor Tom Nichols is a noted conservative commentator who left the GOP after the Kavanaugh hearings revealed the party’s win at all costs mentality.

Florida-based former GOP operative Rick Wilson poked at Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) who is well known as one of the least intellectually capable Republicans in the land.

Former Kansas House Republican Tom Coleman tweeted an excellent summary of the first Mueller hearing in just two tweets. First, he slammed the congresspeople who chose to represent the president and not their districts.

Then, Coleman explained the bottom line of the House Judiciary Committee’s damning hearing against Trump.

It has taken years for some Republicans to quit the party, disavow Trump and for the Special Counsel’s office to produce the damning report that shows how a foreign government became heavily invested and active in electing a GOP president.

Hopefully, their friends that are still Republicans take careful note of these condemnations of the party and leave the GOP sooner rather than later.
