Republicans have lots of problems. Here is a short list.
1. A President who is a sociopathic liar and alleged lawbreaker: Emolument Clause, Misprision of Fraud, False Allegations, and Slander, suspicion of committing treasonous acts in concert with his campaign surrogates
2. A political party that is ideologically bent on hurting millions of Americans via ill-conceived legislation
It amounts to a corrupt party that is heinously mean-spirited, cruel, and unAmerican.
Now, they know that the Trump White House has a leaking problem and it begins with the head-leaker. Having been caught "red-handed" (pun intended), party leaders are more concerned about who is tattling the truth than they are about the nastiness in the message.
Do you think that it was a joke that Donald Trump was being paid by the Russians? There is plausibility here that is undeniable.
"GOP leaders launch internal review into leak
House GOP leaders have launched an internal review into how someone secretly recorded and leaked audio of a private 2016 leadership meeting in which Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) jokes about how Russia is paying off Donald Trump.
Sources familiar with the review told The Hill that GOP leadership is currently researching what federal statutes or House rules could be applied to hold the leaker accountable. Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has voiced concerns that more audio recordings of sensitive leadership discussions could be leaked."
