Robinson: GOP More Interested in ‘Holding onto Power Than Holding onto Democracy’

‘We are trying to defend our democracy under mortal threat’

EXCERPT:

ROBINSON: "It’s just that they’re more interested in holding onto power than holding onto democracy as we know it and as we’ve grown it and cultivated it and tried to preserve it for 240 years. They care less about that than they care about keeping the Senate and than — certainly President Trump cares less about that than he cares about getting re-elected. It is amazing that we’re sitting here this morning talking about trying to defend our democracy from the President of the United States, from our commander-in-chief.”
