to give some credit where it is due, as trump looks worse and worse for the GOP, the ones with a stronger tie to their ideals rather than loyalty to trump will attempt damage control for those ideals. If they can lessen the damage while still allowing the justice system to accomplish something then they can continue to pursue their ideals. The same kind of damage control happened with bill clinton.

at its core it is tribalism though so don't mistake me, you are 100% correct. We all believe ourselves to be the hero's of our personal story and that motivates us to sometimes do less than heroic things.
