The VERY thing that House Speaker Pelosi does NOT want to happen WILL happen….
Donald Trump WILL run on the efforts AGAINST him….
If they HOLD in the US Senate….
If they can throw EVERY effort from the Democrats at bay ….
Stalling the process…
Kicking more and MORE probe requests to the courts which move at a glaclacal pace….
All the while ?
American’s in the majority have become actually used to all this and are worried about their daily lives NOT this stuff in the beltway….
Donald Trump’s people just shake their heads and WILL use ALL this as a reason TO VOTE….
Democrats , on the other hand?
If Trump goes 2-0, with NO Muller lasting damage and NO actual impeachment conviction?
Might have a dispirited voter come next November?
Donald Trump’s campaign aides expected months ago that Democrats would try to impeach the president — and he needed a way to exploit it.
So this summer, Trump 2020 officials spliced news clips of Democrats discussing impeachment into a 90-second video montage, punctuated by the president imploring supporters to help him “stop this nonsense.” Aides quietly filed the spot away until last week, when it was released as part of an online counteroffensive to the impeachment push that brought in 50,000-plus new donors and raked in $8.5 million in two days — the campaign’s biggest digital haul since its June launch.
The push demonstrates how Trump, in less than three years in office, has perfected a grievance machine that converts deep-seated outrage on the right into fundraising dollars and new support. As Trump confronts the gravest threat to his presidency yet, his campaign is stoking — and monetizing — the anger of a Republican base that has long seen the president as under siege.
With damaging revelations about the president’s dealings with Ukraine emerging on a near-daily basis and polls showing increasing support for impeachment, the president is facing serious political peril. But even Democrats acknowledge concern that Trump’s unique ability to rally his supporters and marshal resources could have a profound impact on the 2020 election.
Tara McGowan, a Democratic digital strategist who worked for a pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC in 2016, said that Trump’s “ability to very quickly define any event or issue on his terms and energize his base” through online advertising “provides him with a huge competitive advantage over Democrats.”
