P. Ryan Hussey, a lifelong Republican voter from Kansas, sent a scathing letter to Sens. Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Jerry Moran (R-KS) over the weekend announcing that he would be leaving the party after what he saw during the impeachment hearings last week.
Hussey claims in his letter that the Republican Party has changed completely under Donald Trump and that the impeachment hearings was the final straw.
“The straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back occurred during the past few weeks when Republican House Intelligence Committee members abandoned all semblance of sanity,” he wrote. “I was disgusted to hear members of my former party challenge the patriotism of a career military veteran and intelligence officer simply because his testimony did not subscribe to their shallow narrative.”
Hussey went on to shred the GOP for pushing bogus conspiracy theories about Ukraine hacking the Democratic National Committee that he called “textbook Russian disinformation.”
The bottom line, Hussey concluded, is that he “could no longer, in good faith, consider myself part of a party that subscribed to these absurd positions.”
