Scarborough: GOP’s Goal Now ‘Is to Cover Up for Illegal and Immoral Misdeeds’ of Trump

Thursday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough responded to former President Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s testimony on Capitol Hill against the president.

Scarborough lamented what has happened to the party he once served as a congressman in because members of the GOP are covering up “for the illegal and immoral misdeeds of Donald J. Trump,” he said.

“[R]epublican members of the House Oversight Committee exposed themselves in plain sight, in plain sight, as a political party whose goal, whose purpose and whose central organizing principle … is to cover up for the illegal and immoral misdeeds of Donald J. Trump,” argued Scarborough.

He added, “[T]he moral collapse of Abraham Lincoln’s party began in earnest the day Donald Trump was nominated almost three years ago.
