Believes Republicans Who Sided with Democrats Would Face ‘Political Repercussions’
“Do you think Republican senators face political repercussions if they break with the president?” O’Donnell asked.
“Yeah, I do,” Meadows said. “I mean, listen, I don’t wanna speak for my Senate colleagues. But there are always political repercussions for every vote you take. There is no vote that is higher-profile than this.”
Meadows is not wrong. As the impeachment circus becomes more and more absurd, whether or not some moderate Republicans decide to stick with President Trump or side with the Democrats is a decision that will rightly define them.
Trump is a Republican president of particular significance, as Meadows rightly pointed out last week.
Folks, don’t forget: in the midst of all the impeachment noise this week, @realDonaldTrump became the first President EVER to attend the March for Life

If any Republicans decide to go against Trump, Meadows is right that they will likely pay a political price for it. The Democrats have had it in for Trump since day one, and this Ukraine impeachment angle is only the latest ploy of many. When this doesn’t work, there will be more.
You can expect Democrats to be all in on each of these desperate gambits. Republicans should have sense enough to avoid them.
