I think these fine, upstanding right-wingers just did a hell of a lot to restore my faith in humanity:

Conservative organization Republicans for the Rule of Law released a new digital billboard campaign Wednesday blasting President Trump and several GOP lawmakers and officials over the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

The ads show an image of President Trump behind Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former National Security adviser John Bolton, acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani with tape over all of their mouths, according to copies of the billboards shared with The Hill.

“What Is Trump Hiding?” the ads ask. They will be placed in the congressional districts of House Republicans, including Reps. Greg Walden (Ore.), Mac Thornberry (Texas), Fred Upton (Mich.) Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) John Katko (N.Y.), Martha Roby (Ala.), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.), Michael McCaul (Texas), Mo Brooks (Ala.) and Paul Mitchell (Mich.) and Francis Rooney (Fla.) according to copies of the advertisements.

“The president doesn’t own the government and he’s not above the law,” Republicans for the Rule of Law spokesman Chris Truax said in a statement to The Hill. “He’s merely a caretaker acting on our behalf and when Congress demands an accounting, it’s the President’s duty to comply.”

Trump's salary is paid by the American people, thus he is the employee of the American people. He serves at the pleasure of us and the people we elect to represent us in our government. And if we want to know what he's been up to, we have the right to fucking know.

I just need to add some more evidence that not all Republicans have their heads buried so far up Trump's ass that they can't see the light of reason:

Truax attacked the White House for preventing administration officials from testifying before lawmakers in the ongoing impeachment inquiry. The White House has blocked the testimonies of a dozen Trump officials.

“President Trump has been given every opportunity to answer the charges against him,” Truax said. “He demands friendly witnesses, yet refuses to allow his most loyal supporters to testify. He complains the proceedings are unfair, yet refuses to allow his lawyers to participate in the hearings.”

“If President Trump really could prove he is innocent of the impeachment charges against him, he would have made some effort to do so by now,” he continued. “If the President really does think the facts will exonerate him, why won’t he let those facts come out?”

The never Trump movement has been around since at least 6 months before the election . There has always been some opposition to Trump from the Republican party.
