Mike Murphy, Fmr. Senior adviser to Mitt Romney and John McCain, tells MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell that "'One Republican senator told me if it was a secret vote, 30 Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump."

George was a wise man. He also warned us of a man like Trump and the GOP of today. He even warned of a worse case scenario which he said we ought not rule out of sight.

"...and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.

Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it..."

Well, I am amazed at the intelligence and prophetic insight of President Washington and I'm sure he would be sad about where we've come. Unfortunately, his vision and hope for a "wise people" fell a little short. I think we have reached the point of his forewarned worse case scenario.
