To think that there isn’t gonna be some collateral damage to Donald Trump himself is beyond reality…..
Donald Trump IS losing the battle to keep himself and his action out of the public’s eyes….
Being President just precludes THAT….
The guy didn’t think he’s win…
He’s now paying the price for that win…
Despite the view that he’d change idea that President MUST reveal every thing about their lives….
Everything IS getting dragged into the open….
President Trump’s legal troubles are spiraling and even some people who are supportive of his agenda worry about what comes next.
“They are going after every aspect of his business and his finances, and they have unlimited resources. It’s a huge concern because the Democrats are not on a search for truth but to destroy him and his presidency,” one Republican campaign consultant told The Hill.
Brad Blakeman, a veteran of President George W. Bush’s administration and a strong backer of Trump, insisted that the president had done nothing wrong but acknowledged that the various probes he now faces are so time-intensive that they “take away from his ability to govern.”

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) last week announced new parameters in his panel’s investigation of Trump, including examining whether any “foreign actor…has sought to compromise or holds leverage” over the president.
The president has been hitting back even more fiercely than usual. He took the unusual step of complaining during his State of the Union address last week about “ridiculous partisan investigations.”
Separately, he branded Schiff a “political hack.” He inveighed against “presidential harassment” on Twitter. And, on Friday, he adopted a familiar refrain, insisting that allegations of collusion were a “GIANT AND ILLEGAL HOAX.”
But to Trump’s foes and critics, those kind of sentiments betray nervousness.
“There is no question in my mind that Trump feels like the walls are closing in and he is increasingly losing control over his own destiny,” said Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels. “His statements reflect that fact.”….
