On today’s show we continue to discuss the Mueller Report.
The fallout of the President’s behavior is beginning have an effect.
According to the USA Today, long time Republican legislator in Iowa, Andy McKean, has switched parties due to Trump’s behavior.
Meanwhile, The Hill reports the President will fight all Congressional subpoena. Is impeachment the answer?
Denise from California and I discuss.
Speaking of subpoenas, Trump claims he will fight impeachment in the Supreme Court if need be, tweeting:
“ If the partisan Dems ever tried to Impeach, I would first head to the U.S. Supreme Court. Not only are there no ‘High Crimes and Misdemeanors,’ there are no Crimes by me at all,” he continued.
Lawrence Tribe, a Trump critic and esteemed constitutional lawyer, tweeted in response:
“Not even a SCOTUS filled with Trump appointees would get in the way of the House or Senate, where [Chief Justice] Roberts would preside over Trump’s Impeachment Trial,”
Meanwhile, according to Politico, not even the most vulnerable Republicans are ready to ditch the commander in chief.
“Look, it’s clear there were no merit badges earned at the White House for behavior,” said Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) in an interview downtown here. “You have to focus on the heart of this conclusion, which is there is no collusion, no cooperation. That’s where the focus ought to be and how we prepare for the next elections to protect us from Russian intrusion and interference.”
The desire to stay in Trump’s good graces and keep his supporters appears to override any interest in using the episode to appeal to swing voters.
Gardner, quoted above, is the most vulnerable senate Republican of the lot and yet his best response to the Mueller report is to call Democrats socialists.
And House Republicans seem to believe impeaching Trump will only activate their conservative base.
Have they read the news about what just happened in Iowa???
