Every president & party has exploited and even bent the rules to pass an agenda. But the Trumpist GOP’s actual agenda is to bend and break the rules. Flouting the law is the point. It sets the stage for anything at all.
McConnell & Graham saying they won’t be impartial jurors was bad, but openly boasting about it is remarkable. Giuliani proudly continuing his corruption in Ukraine is another example. They want to show their impunity, that they are above the law.
