They stand in stark contrast to “the legions of scurrilous and spineless Republicans who cowered before President Trump and refused to uphold our democratic norms and traditions.” As conservative New York Times columnist Brett Stephens noted in his column this morning, those in this latter group, who control the Republican Party, “will have spent the past four years squandering their reputation, forsaking their principles, and trashing the kind of political culture they once claimed to hold dear.”
