Unlike the Robert Mueller effort?
The House Democrats are NOT gonna limit themselves in how they go after him…
His Attorney General won’t be the arbitrator and his wingman….
It’s gonna be about the impeachment poll numbers and his support in the US Senate…
If he keeps the Senate GOPer’s he’ll keep his job and might get another four…
His handlers now have the task of try to hang on while he digs himself DEEPER in trouble because he’s WORRIED…No Doubt….And when he is ?….He just runs his mouth…
For President Donald Trump, impeachment once seemed like a vacation compared to the never-ending, leak-filled Mueller investigation.
The president for months genuinely believed he’d gain politically from an impeachment inquiry because he thought Democrats were out to get him on any issue they could, and such an inquiry would make that clear, according to two former senior administration officials.
Privately, he talked to aides about the way Democrats even picked up seats in the 1998 midterms as President Bill Clinton faced impeachment hearings. Trump also latched onto the fact that removing a president required the approval of two-thirds of the Senate — so he felt assured that as long as he maintained the support of Senate Republicans, he would be fine.
The president’s optimistic, even nonchalant attitude melted away this week in a series of sudden developments as he crisscrossed meetings at the United Nations in New York. Trump and a coterie of aides were stunned by a swift progression of events that upended their longtime thinking about how an impeachment scenario would proceed. By the time they returned to the White House Thursday, they had tested and retested strategies on the fly as they began to recognize the perilous road ahead that would likely look far different from anything this president or any of his predecessors faced.
“It should never be allowed, what’s happened to this president,” Trump told reporters upon stepping off Air Force One.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rapid move toward impeachment, after months of stalling, reflected her recognition of a new political reality: The contents of Trump’s call with the Ukrainian president, in which he used his sacred perch in the White House to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political rival, could push Trump into feisty and perilous territory — testing public opinion and congressional patience in a drama-filled election season. The swiftness of Pelosi’s action caught the White House by surprise.Play Video
White House aides and allies do not expect the president to calm down anytime soon. Many worry impeachment proceedings will sour the president’s mood and his ability to focus on legislation, any other substantive policy matters or even key elements of the 2020 campaign, much the way Mueller dominated his attention.
Interviews with more than a dozen White House aides, former administration officials, Republican operatives and close Trump allies showed little consensus on either the best course of action ahead or the consequences for Trump and his presidency.
The White House and Trumpworld are expected to test countless new strategies in the weeks and months ahead, just as they did in recent days…..
