Trump in 2014 fantasized about Obama falling apart emotionally if he got impeached: ‘He’d be a mess!’

Published

President Donald Trump has been angrily obsessing over House impeachment hearings — just like he imagined former President Barack Obama would do if Republicans impeached him back in 2014.

Media Matters this week dug up an old “Fox & Friends” interview with Trump in which he mused over whether Obama secretly wanted to be impeached to boost his poll numbers, similar to what happened with former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.

Trump, however, did not believe Obama wanted any part of impeachment and predicted that he would fall apart emotionally if such a thing were to happen.

“He would be a mess,” Trump predicted. “He would be thinking about nothing but. It would be a horror show for him. It would be an absolute embarrassment. It would go down on his record permanently.”

Trump, of course, has been infamously obsessed with his own impeachment and has spurned the advice of some outside advisers to at least make it look like he is focused on doing his job even as the House of Representatives draws up articles that will recommend his removal from office.

A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
