Trump on a ‘days-long tirade’ complaining that ‘no one is doing anything’ to end his legal peril: NBC

Published

Although President Donald Trump has been trying to maintain composure in public about his mounting legal woes, behind the scenes he is reportedly furious that he is being left to twist in the wind by his own allies.

Sources tell NBC News that Trump “has been on a days-long tirade” and has been bitterly complaining that “no one around him is doing anything to stop” the legal jeopardy he faces.

According to NBC’s sources, Trump is angry about a large number of developments, including “the threat of a Democratic House with subpoena power, an array of looming congressional investigations, multiple intensifying federal probes, a botched effort to find a new chief of staff and a potential partial government shutdown over a lack of funding for his top campaign promise — a border wall.”

NBC also says that Trump has confided in friends that he is “alarmed” at the prospect of getting impeached by a Democratic Congress next year, even though he’s publicly insisted that he’s not worried about it.

Trump has been withdrawing more from the public eye this week as scandals continue to swirl around his administration. The president reportedly didn’t show up to work until noon on Wednesday, and on Thursday he abruptly cancelled the annual White House Christmas party for members of the media.

Published

on

This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump did something so concerning that an intelligence staffer felt the need to report the incident and file for whistleblower protections.

Trump asked Ukraine to look into scandals about former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter. For nearly a year, Trump's former attorney Rudy Giuliani was admittedly working to persuade officials in Ukraine to find "dirt" on the Bidens that they could use in the election. While the accusations against the younger Biden have been disproven, it's suspected, but not confirmed, that this was the incident detailed in the complaint.

Published

on

In an examination of the record-breaking number of Republican lawmakers who have decided to quit or retire despite holding a seat in solidly conservative congressional districts, one lawmaker admitted that he grew weary of having to deal with Donald Trump's daily Twitter habit and other shenanigans -- so he is calling it quits.
