As the impeachment madness continues, it’s obvious now that the president wants to be impeached. He’s doing everything he can to antagonize the Democrats, all the while playing dumb. “My phone call was perfect!” he says over and over, referring to the phone call he had with President Zelinsky of the Ukraine. His tweets are becoming more and more belligerent, accusing Democrats of “witch hunts,” saying that the impeachment inquiry is “BULLSHIT,” and calling for the resignation and impeachment of Adam Schiff (D, CA) chairman of the House Intel Committee. You’d think the guy is stupid, wouldn’t you? Why would you continue to antagonize the people who want you out of office? People who observe Trump say it’s because he’s an out-of-control egomaniac. But I’m not so sure.
Perhaps Trump wants an impeachment, and a trial in the Senate. Why? So he can introduce documents, in a legal forum, without the charge of being politically biased. He knew he was going to be impeached on November 10, 2016, when media began speculating (two days after the election) what would happen if he committed an impeachable offense. The Mueller investigation was supposed to find those impeachable offenses, but it didn’t. Now the Ukraine call is being used. Fighting impeachment was never going to work, even though Trump is making a good show of “resisting.” He wants it, he knew it was coming three years ago.
Does Trump have docs that will, as Q claims, bring down the Democratic party, and the corrupt pols in the Republican party? Or is this just another version of The Apprentice? We’ll find out. The Democrats want to tell Trump, “You’re fired!” And they probably will.
One thing about Trump: he never gives up. No matter how much pressure is put on him, he isn’t going to fold. Not like Richard Nixon in 1973.
Look for a frenzied run-up to the 2020 elections.
