'Disgusted' Trump campaign workers now have buyers' remorse: NYT reporter

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman told CNN on Friday that she's recently spoken with many conservatives who now say they regret working on President Donald Trump's campaign in 2016.


While discussing the president's erratic behavior and the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis, Haberman said that Trump is now in more danger than at any point in his presidency as even his fellow Republicans are becoming gravely alarmed by his behavior.

"We're at a critical moment," Haberman said. "The number of conservatives who I have talked to in the last day who worked on the campaign, who supported the president, who now say, 'You know what, I regret doing that. That was a mistake. This administration is off the rails.'"

Haberman went on to explain that these conservatives admitted that all of the investigations into Trump would be a "huge problem" for him going forward.

"They felt disgusted, for lack of a better word, with what they have seen with the details that came out of Michael Cohen's plea deal," she said. "All of that is going to keep going. That's not abating -- all of that is actually going to intensify over the year."

In the end, Haberman said that it would only take 20 Republican senators to vote in favor of impeaching Trump -- and while that possibility was still unlikely, the departure of Mattis makes it more likely than it has been.
