President Donald Trump and his team of White House advisers are starting to panic about whether Republicans will falter when it comes to impeachment.

According to CNN, Trump is freaking out so much has started calling Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as much as three times a day.

Trump has claimed that he welcomes impeachment, but his Twitter account shows another story. With his tweets and retweets more than doubling since the inquiry was announced, Trump appears to be spiraling into a meltdown with each new revelation.

The report said that it was McConnell who is telling a small number of Republicans about the president’s meltdowns.

“This story, based on a single anonymous source, is categorically false. Leader McConnell never said anything like this,” said McConnell’s spokesperson Doug Andres.

Trump has been lashing out at Republicans senators he thinks might be disloyal, something he’s done since the beginning of taking office. Now, however, he needs them. So, if they intend to continue the attacks, Trump reportedly told McConnell that he’ll go after any Republican who dares to criticize him.
“McConnell faces his own dilemma of having to preserve the Republican majority in the Senate, while also placating an erratic President who demands nothing short of total loyalty,” the CNN report said. “That will become harder as more details about Trump’s dealings with Ukraine trickle out.”

One of few Republicans willing to stand up to Trump has been Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) who won’t need to be reelected until after Trump’s first term is up. Romney enjoys greater support than Trump in the state.

But support of Trump isn’t enough. CNN said that Trump has become concerned about Republicans unwilling to defend him.

“Internal disputes, long rife in Trump’s West Wing, have also heightened the sense of disorder at Trump’s approach to impeachment,” the report described. “Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is seen by many aides as leading the impeachment strategy efforts. A source close to the President’s impeachment team said Kushner is playing a ‘growing role’ in how the White House handles the response, though other officials said much of the response will be left to ‘Jay and Trey,’ a reference to Gowdy and Jay Sekulow, members of the outside legal team.”

That said, Trump tends to control all of his media, regardless of what his advisers tell him.

Rick Wilson urges ‘humiliation and incarceration’ for the GOP’s ‘grubby sellouts’ who propped up Trump for 4 years

Published

Republicans know the end of Donald Trump's presidency is near, despite his increasingly desperate legal challenges, and former GOP strategist Rick Wilson won't be willing to forgive and forget.

Wilson, writing for The Daily Beast, imagines there will be a rush of Republicans to distance themselves from the soon-to-be-former president, but he said there will be copious evidence of lawmakers, governors and political professional debasing themselves for Trump.

Expert explains why ‘systemic conservatism’ continues to prevail in America

Published

on

On the Sunday after the November 3rd presidential election, Utah Senator Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, congratulated President-elect Joe Biden but insisted that the overall election was an endorsement of conservative principles. He pointed to the gains Republicans made in the House, though they are still in the minority, and the failure of the Democrats to capture control of the Senate, at least so far. Romney found further evidence in the Democrats' inability to flip GOP-controlled statehouses.

Romney, however, is mistaken in his basic assertion. First of all, Biden won by more than 5 million popular votes, nearly 4 percent more than Trump's total. The president-elect obtained the highest number of popular votes in the nation's history. Biden's margin of victory, contrary to Romney's claim, is not a mandate for conservatism. Rather, at the very least, the election was a referendum on President Trump's leadership, which of course Trump used to promote conservative ideas concerning tax cuts for the wealthy and the relaxation of business and environmental regulations.

Expert breaks down the ultimate goal of Trump’s ‘classic Russian-style disinformation campaign’

Published

Jonathan Rauch, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, spoke with CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday to explain the ultimate goal of President Donald Trump's false accusations of a rigged and stolen election.

Rauch was asked by Stelter if the issue is Trump is simply trapped in the delusion that he actually beat President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

"Is delusion a fair word for these election lies?" Stelter wondered.

"No, actually, I don't think it is," Rauch replied. "It's hard to know what's going on in the mind of the president, but you don't really need to. What you need to know is that what he is running right now is a classic Russian-style disinformation campaign of a type known as the firehose of falsehood. That's when you utilize every channel, not just media, but also the bully pulpit, even litigation to push out as many different stories and conspiracy theories and lies and half-truths as you possibly can in order to flood the zone if with disinformation."
