Soon to be former Congressman Mark Sanford of SC-1st was on that bothsiderist TV show Kasie DC on MSNBC, and he was asked about Trump and the SDNY’s sentencing memo on Cohen. If you want to see a profile in political courage, this was not it.
A shocker I know.
Now, I would have thought after Trump got you beat in a Republican primary that you might be a little pissed about that. I think I would be. But I suppose if you are angling for working as a lobbyist that you do not want to rock that boat. And Sanford appeared to be a man whose balls were still in Trump’s pocket because he dodged that question about Trump being an unindicted co-conspirator on breaking campaign finance laws.
In fact, Steve Kornacki had to ask the question a second time to get Sanford to engage on this issue. And Sanford still continued to dodge. This left Kornacki trying to get Sanford to comment about whether or not Republicans should go along with impeachment on Trump. Kornacki reminded Sanford that when Republicans impeached Bill Clinton it was all about breaking the law by perjury.
Shocker: Sanford was unenthused by this.
Sanford pointed out that Democrats were going to go down the same path that Republicans did with Bill Clinton. The House might impeach, but the Republican Senate would not convict. The end
