Trump allies respond to second whistleblower: 'Why should I care?'

Source: NBC

President Donald Trump's allies on Sunday offered up a collective shrug in response to news of a second whistleblower coming forward about his July phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.

"It does not matter," Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, told "Fox News Sunday."

"This person is going to come forward and say, yep the president had this phone call," Stewart, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said. "And yep, that's the transcript. Why should I care at all what his opinion and judgment of this transcript is? You and I can read it."

The defense echoed what the president's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani offered on Twitter around the same time. The former New York City mayor has himself become embroiled in the scandal over his months-long effort to have Ukrainian leaders investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and son Hunter.

10. That is the Propaganda Campaign

Convince people the whole conversation has been released, not the abridged version. Is the Mueller Report delay all over, except it won’t work this time with multiple whistleblowers all at once to counter their narrative.

5. This hurts their absurd argument that the whistleblower had second-hand info.

Expect a new round of talking points to accidentally get emailed to Dems.

7. These are the kind of guys who deny the Holocast happened.

Or that climate change doesn't exist.

If you ignore it or pretend it doesn't matter, you don't have to do anything about it.

8. They think they have the senate locked up. And it won't stop the RW gas-lighting.

But I think it will matter to the public.

9. They Don't Care

No matter what this or any other Republican operative does they are not going to cede power to the opposition party. Gerrymandering, filibustering and ratf%#$ing are all about not allowing the Democrats to do anything. It's never going to stop with these people. When the wheels fall off the economy they will find ways to screw Democratic areas by cutting their federal programs. This is why the Democratic party needs to put in place some type of backstop that first cuts federal monies to areas of this country that receive more federal funding than they pay in taxes. I'll include SS since it's really a pay as you go system. Let the areas of this country that have labor participation rates under 50% figure out how to make their local budgets work without taking money from areas that have a well developed tax base and actually want a functioning government and infrastructure and a working education system.

13. You are entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts.

The whistleblowers are providing facts, not opinions, no matter how Fat Donnie's minions try to spin it.
