The Hill reports:
Outgoing Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) told NBC News that there are no seeming consequences for President Trump when he lies, cautioning that there would be “incredibly harmful” repercussions in Washington’s future.
“There is no seeming consequence to the president and lies and it is going to have incredibly harmful consequences in the way that we operate going forward, based on the construct of the Founding Fathers,” Sanford said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” which is set to air on Sunday.
Asked why more Republicans haven’t spoken out against Trump, Sanford said, “People are running for the hills. And again everybody, what you do as an elected official is, an old-time senator told me years ago, the name of the game is staying in the game.”
