Virtually all the talking heads are in agreement: Our President will be impeached by the House and acquitted in the Senate. This is based on the irrefutable fact that Republicans are so deep in his sh*t all they can do is pretend they can't smell it. That leaves them struggling to agree on a strategy to defend him; and at the moment, it looks like all they have are Giuliani's conspiracy theories.
Our President, it appears, sincerely believes in those conspiracy theories, so you can be sure he regards "believing" them as a test of loyalty. Needless to say, the conservative media (and the Russians) are doing a pretty good job of selling them to the loyal Republican base. The Nazi "big lie" stratagem still works — and social media helps it work even better.
Just for entertainment value, I'd love to see public testimony from Rudy Giuliani. (I know I'm not supposed to laugh at the handicapped, but in Rudy's case, I'll make an exception.)
