Trump aides panicked that Democrats will make their lives ‘really miserable’ if they take back Congress

Aides to President Donald Trump know that they are in for a rough time if Democrats retake the House of Representatives this fall.

White House sources tell CNN that they are dreading the prospect of having a Congress that is more willing to conduct oversight of the executive branch.

Another GOP source tells CNN that they particularly dread the prospect of special counsel Robert Mueller releasing a report shortly after the midterm elections — which would give Democrats material that they can investigate from the first day they take office in January.

“If they’re not concerned about that, they should be,” the GOP aide explains. “It would be like a perfect storm.”

An internal GOP document that leaked earlier this month revealed that Republicans are very concerned about Democrats’ potential investigations of the Trump administration on issues ranging from the administration’s handling of helping Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, and the president’s hush-money payments to former mistresses.
