Republicans are so terrified at the notion of losing control of the government, namely the Oval Office seat. Regardless of how utterly criminal and completely unethical the current president is, the GOP would rather see the nation crumble under the Trump Administration than to see it under liberal leadership.
True patriots, right?
Asked about Bill Taylor's testimony that he had been told that Trump wanted Ukraine to announce investigations before military aid was released, Jim Jordan says there was no quid pro quo because "no announcement about any investigations took place." pic.twitter.com/g5az3pNJsm

Party over nation seems to be the rally cry for Republicans like Jim Jordan, who really don’t care what happens to America, so long as Donald J. Trump isn’t impeachment and removed from office.
Jordan just announced that Republicans would subpoena the Ukrainian whistleblower to testify in front of congress.

Jordan said this just days ago:
“Written answers will not provide a sufficient opportunity to probe all the relevant facts and cross examine the so-called Whistleblower. You don’t get to ignite an impeachment effort and never account for your actions and role in orchestrating it. We have serious questions about this individual’s political bias and partisan motivations and it seems Mark Zaid and Adam Schiff are attempting to hide these facts from public scrutiny. Last week’s testimony raised even more concerns about the anonymous whistleblower and our need to hear from them, in person.”

Zaid responded to Jordan by saying that:
“Congressman Jordan’s statement highlights his misunderstanding of fed WBer laws & protections. Notwithstanding WBer’s offer to rise above partisanship, he responds w/deliberate deflection & disinformation.”
He likes to avoid the truth. Just ask the wrestling team at Ohio State University.

Does he even buy the ridiculousness he’s spewing? What makes men like Jim Jordan tick? It certainly isn’t morality or righteousness, so what is it?
