Anyone wonder why Donald Trump and Co. have joined the national media in pushing for an impeachment effort by House Democrats?
Anybody wonder why Donald Trump and Co. are NOT attacking Bernie Sanders?
Joe Biden right now the way out there front running to win the Democratic nomination for President…
It would appear that Bernie Sander is the only on within striking distance of Biden and he’s fading fast…
The unusually high number of second and third tier candidates one the Democratic side actually help Biden’s position because they dilute chances of someone else emerging from the pack…
Biden has been talking about what he would do as President…But…His main attacking in the media for the last two weeks have been to challenge Donald Trump’s actions in office…The others have only talked substance to introduce themselves , something Biden need not do…He was the countries Vice President to Barack Obama who is vastly popular to Democrats and the voting public in general….
Trump has turned to fighting on the international stage. Moving away from immigration….Even as despite McConnell hope that the Mueller like investigation would go away…..They won’t of course….Maybe he and handlers think he’ll appear more ‘Presidential ‘ to his base?
Mr. Trump has been focused in recent days on overseas crises and challenges, holding a hastily called meeting with advisers early Wednesday morning about a reported threat of force by Iran against American forces in the Middle East. He is also said to be absorbed by the developing Democratic primary battle to choose a challenger to him in next year’s election.
An internal poll of 17 states taken by Mr. Trump’s campaign showed one possible opponent, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., overtaking Mr. Trump in a head-to-head contest, according to people familiar with the numbers. Mr. Trump fared better in a matchup against Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, but Mr. Trump’s low approval numbers were dragging him down against the Democrats. It was unclear whether the campaign poll-tested anyone else in the field.
Still, that does not mean he is disengaged from the fight underway in the aftermath of the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III. The president expressed anger on Thursday about a subpoena issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee to his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., and privately complained to advisers about Senate Republicans who have sought his family’s help politically but are now trying to compel his son to testify.
The president’s strategy is being directed by Pat Cipollone, the White House counsel, and senior Justice Department officials. Like Attorney General William P. Barr, Mr. Cipollone has strong views about executive power.
Mr. Trump has been watching Fox News and other coverage of congressional efforts to obtain the parts of Mr. Mueller’s report that were redacted by Mr. Barr, people close to him said. At times, his impulses have contradicted the lawyers’ advice, they said….
While Mr. Trump is pushing Democrats on impeachment, Mr. Giuliani dismissed the idea advanced in some quarters that the president believes it would actually be politically advantageous for Democrats to impeach him without convicting him because it would rally Republicans coming into the presidential election.
“Nobody wants to be impeached,” Mr. Giuliani said. “I think Clinton would say, even though it worked out to his favor, he would have rather not been impeached.”
