The Republican chair simply brought up the Hilary ploy as a smokescreen to the crazy Republican base (Trump World). The fact they allowed this Russian prob to go forward at all is the real story here. Republican members of the committee made no attempt to defend Trump, but rather gave the Democrats a perfect opportunity to lay out a blistering case againt Trump and company. In point of fact, it has gotten to where old-line Republicans want to see Trump sunk as much as Democrats, they just can’t afford to make it look glaringly obvious.
