And here’s the thing, if Donald — I think, I believe, if Donald Trump goes down, he’s going to take everybody with him. He’s not going to let Barr or Pence or Pompeo come through this alive. He will literally take them out.”
“So when it comes to Democrats, this is the second thing I wanted to say — when it comes to Democrats, I think this is the difference between Mueller and where we are today, where we’re actually in an impeachment inquiry,” added Jean-Pierre. “With Mueller, the Mueller probe, Mueller wasn’t leaking, right? It was just one side of the argument that we were hearing, which was Donald Trump and all of his enablers and all of his, you know, folks who are following him really hard. And so, they were muddying the waters, and we had nothing to really push back.”
