It’s a bunch of humbo jumbo

Someone was referring to the Repbulicans’ defense in the Trump impeachment hearings.  This is a nice word blend of “humbug” (deceptive or false talk) and “mumbo jumbo” (intended to cause confusion).  Both expressions refer to misleading someone.  Maybe it’s a new expression, meaning deceptive talk meant to confuse?  A big thanks to John Kooser who overheard this one.
