This doesn’t mean Republicans will back Trump forever, particularly if the special counsel or the congressional committees unearth more unflattering evidence. And if Democrats win control of the House or the Senate in 2018, that will change the tenor of Congress’s Russia debate.
Let's be clear. The GOP doesn't care because they want the Trump base to support them come 2018. They do not care about appeasing others as they will not vote GOP anyway. The key question is this - what can Americans do to convince at least some of the Trump base to listen to reason? How can you cut above the clutter of Fox news and Beitbart and truly reach out to the people who are voting?
And what happens if GOP continues to win 2018 primary?
