I keep forcing myself to listen to this podcast because it features guests from the right but it's such an exercise on futility. These trump preachers do nothing but distort reality, talk over the interviewer, and overall just filibuster until time is up. This guy just admitted it doesn't matter what trump does or says just a long as it has good results for the VA. The definition of hipocrisy.

I don't think it matters if the Republicans refuse to vote him out of office. I believe the importance of the Democrats putting the articles of impeachment on the record is tantamount
