Who is behind the so-called “Republicans for the Rule of Law” funding billboards and ads pushing U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner and other GOP senators to impeach President Trump?

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the group is a partner of Defend American Democracy, a liberal, dark money group that’s spending a ton of money to pressuring Republicans to impeach the president.

Not only have they wrangled some Trump-hating Republicans like former U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton of, ahem, Washington state to front for them in campaigns against fellow Republicans, they are also using veterans in ads urging Republicans to impeach the president.

Defend American Democracy is a project of the Sixteen Thirty Fund, the mother of all dark money groups funded by a former Clinton administration officials with more than $100 million in the bank.

The billboard on I-25 in Douglas County declares: “Sen. Gardner, the witnesses must testify.”

The first clue this isn’t a legitimate Republican group, they’re not asking for the actual whistleblower to be a witness. 

They want to drag the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo in front of the Senate to testify under oath, as well as other top White House officials. 

Which just reinforces our notion that House Democrats never had enough evidence to impeach Trump in the first place, they just want to embarrass him and his administration, and steal the election.
