Trump is 'so angry and flailing' about impeachment because he knows it's going to define his presidency: White House reporter

White House reporter Jonathan Lemire isn't buying President Donald Trump's seeming confidence about surviving impeachment.


Lemire told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that Trump fears impeachment, even if he's acquitted in the Senate, because it will overshadow his presidency.

"He doesn't want this," Lemire said. "He knows it's the first line of his obituary, his political obituary, to become the third president impeached, which is why he is so angry and flailing about this process."
