I'll take that as a no.

No true Scotsman, or appeal to purity, is an informal fallacy in which one attempts to protect a universal generalization from counterexamples by changing the definition in an ad hoc fashion to exclude the counterexample.

For example, you've tried to argue that because the impeachment inquiry does not have support from republicans it's illegitimate, or without merit. But then when a republican comes out for impeachment (not just the inquiry, but impeachment!), you try to say they aren't a true republican, or that it doesn't matter because of reasons.

The republican who came in 3rd to trump in 2016 calling for his impeachment is pretty big news.
