    You know Republicans in Congress are getting desperate in their attempts to defend Trump when they use words like "genuine" or "reasonable" to describe his motives.

    House Republicans plan to argue that President Donald Trump was acting on “genuine and reasonable” skepticism of Ukraine and “valid” concerns about possible corruption involving Americans, not political self-interest, when he pressed the country for investigations of his Democratic rivals, according to a draft of a report laying out their impeachment defense.

    This should make for interesting reading:

    In a 123-page document that echoes the defiant messaging that Trump has employed in his own defense, the Republicans do not concede a single point of wrongdoing or hint of misbehavior by the president, according to a copy reviewed by The New York Times before its planned release on Tuesday.

    I sure hope whoever this guy is they are describing shows up to testify on behalf of Trump.  Could this be his angelic twin suddenly appearing to defend his screw-up of a brother?
