Trump himself and many in his orbit have been clearly surprised by the number of Republicans and typically enabling/supporting conservatives that have made strong statements of rebuke against the president.
Texas state Rep. Jason Villalba (R-Dallas) warned Americans that they will be “equally culpable in what [Trump] has planned for our great nation” if they don’t take immediate action against him.
“We are better than what this president suggests we are,” Villalba wrote in an opinion piece in The Texas Tribune’s “TribTalk.”
“We eschew ugliness and divisiveness,” he continued. “Donald J. Trump is no longer our leader. It is time to push him into the ash bin of history.”
The calls for impeachment grew much louder after the Trump/Putin meeting for what many viewed as Trump’s siding with Putin over American intelligence agencies in their assessment of the existence of Russia’s interference in the 2016 Presidential election.
