Who is displaying patriotism?

I appreciated Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’s clarifications regarding her perspective on impeachment and the hearings. She thinks that the whistleblower should testify, but gives a pass to acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton.

I would have anticipated that a member of Congress would want Mulvaney to honor a congressional subpoena, but, as we are learning, the rule of law is being selectively applied. I assume that the representative listened to the compelling testimony of dedicated, longtime public servants, in particular that of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, David Holmes and Dr. Fiona Hill.

One is left with the question as to who is displaying patriotism right now: Those who are stepping up to testifying or those who are hanging back? That question is an easy one to answer.
