Trump is ‘terrified of being impeached’: Ex-Republican congressman

Published

on

President Donald Trump is telegraphing to the American people that he is “terrified” of impeachment, a former Republican member of Congress argued on Tuesday.

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) was interviewed by MSNBC’s Brian Williams on “The 11th Hour.”

“David Jolly, I don’t want to put words in your mouth, but did I hear you with Nicolle Wallace this afternoon saying that in effect in your humble opinion the Democrats have been caught a little bit flat-footed by the arrival of the Mueller report, the tonnage in it and the counter-argument which is just short phrases from the president?” Williams asked.

“Yeah, I don’t think they’ve embraced the urgency of the moment,” Jolly replied.

“Nancy Pelosi was overseas, we haven’t seen proof of life of Chuck Schumer and Steny Hoyer said, ‘Eh, the report’s the report, we’ll have an election in eighteen months,'” he summarized.

“Brian, I think what’s going on today, Donald Trump is telling the American people he’s terrified of being impeached,” Jolly concluded.

Published

Then-National Security Advisor John Bolton was reportedly shocked by the shadow foreign policy being conducted by Rudy Giuliani, a top former National Security Council official testified to Congress on Monday, The New York Times reports.

"The effort to pressure Ukraine for political help provoked a heated confrontation inside the White House last summer that so alarmed John R. Bolton, then the national security adviser, that he told an aide to alert White House lawyers, House investigators were told on Monday," the newspaper reported. "Mr. Bolton got into a sharp exchange on July 10 with Gordon D. Sondland, the Trump donor turned ambassador to the European Union, who was working with Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, to press Ukraine to investigate Democrats, according to testimony provided to the investigators."

Published

Former Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman concluded on Monday that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin must have "something" on President Donald Trump.

"The latest reporting from The New York Times indicates that the thousands of troops that we have there, that the president moved, are now trapped. They don’t have an actual way out since Turkey has cut off the roads and the exit routes that they might use and so now there is the question of will there be an airlift? How will we get the U.S. troops out?" MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell asked.

"We haven’t had to get troops out like this since the fall of Saigon," Sherman replied. "This is going to be very, very difficult."
