Indiana GOP official quits party — and attacks ‘cultish’ Republican efforts to crush impeachment

Published

on

According to the Indianapolis Star, a longtime GOP precinct committeeman in Marion County is resigning from the Republican Party — and in his resignation letter, he slammed his erstwhile colleagues for circling the wagons around President Donald Trump and burying the evidence in the impeachment trial.

“After watching the impeachment process transpire, it has become patently obvious that nothing remains of the party I knew and faithfully served,” wrote Ed Adams. “It has become the party of Donald Trump with cultish enthusiasm.”

Adams added that he has opposed Trump for a long time, but hoped that by staying a Republican he could help rebuild his party on firmer principles when the president was gone — a hope he has now lost. “I really wanted to be one of the last guys hanging around with the janitorial mop and bucket to clean up the mess when it’s all done. Because at some point Trump will be done. He’ll be gone. But the question is, what’s left? But right now I just don’t see anything left.”

Even though multiple Senate Republicans now acknowledge the president’s scheme to force Ukraine to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden was wrong, they appear poised to vote in unison to swat down the impeachment articles for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The head of Moscow's main coronavirus hospital who met with President Vladimir Putin a week ago has tested positive, he said Tuesday, as the Kremlin announced the Russian leader's health was fine.

Last Tuesday Denis Protsenko met with the Russian leader who inspected the Kommunarka hospital while wearing a bright yellow hazmat suit. But the 67-year-old Putin was also seen talking to Protsenko without any protective gear.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov swiftly told Russian news agencies that Putin took regular tests and there was no reason to worry about his health.

"Everything is fine," Peskov said.
