The Washington Post “reports” that
Whether the president faces legal peril is not clear, but his presidency is at a precarious point. Recent polls suggest his repeated attacks on Mueller for leading a “witch hunt” have lost their effectiveness. And if the Democrats win a majority in at least one house of Congress in the midterm elections, now less than 10 weeks away, they would gain the power to investigate or even impeach.
“The whole reason he is freaking out is he can’t get rid of any of this,” said a longtime adviser to Trump, who, like others interviewed for this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House dynamics.
The president’s sense of betrayal came through last week when he derided cooperating witnesses as “flippers.” “Everything’s wonderful and then they get 10 years in jail and they – they flip on whoever the next highest one is, or as high as you can go,” he told Fox News. In contrast, he tweeted that his “brave” former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who was convicted last week of bank fraud and tax fraud, had “refused to ‘break.’ “
Trump has also focused his ire on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom he has repeatedly and publicly attacked for his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. White House aides have explained to him that firing Sessions would not end the probe, but he remains livid, officials said, particularly after Sessions responded last week with a statement declaring that “the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations.”
The Trump Organization declined to comment for this story. The White House referred questions to Trump’s outside lawyers, who also declined to comment for this story.
And, with good reason.
This Fake News Story is nothing but wish-casting on the part of its writers.

President Donald Trump’s approval rating remains almost unchanged following a week brimming with bad news for his former personal lawyer and former presidential campaign chairman, according to back-to-back NBC News/Wall Street Journal surveys released Sunday.
“We’ve had this enormous series of events, and these numbers don’t change very much,” said GOP pollster Bill McInturff, according to the WSJ.
McInturff and Democratic pollster Peter Hart worked on the two surveys in the days before and after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen struck a plea deal and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted on eight of 18 counts.
“For the 2018 Democratic strategy, the Manafort and Cohen convictions represent a fool’s gold opportunity rather than a silver bullet solution,” Hart said, pointing to the upcoming midterm elections in November, according to the WSJ.
The first poll found that 46 percent of American voters approved of Trump’s presidential performance while 51 percent disapproved. The follow-up poll found that 44 percent of American voters approved while 52 percent disapproved.
News of Manafort’s convictions and Cohen’s plea deal broke August 21. The first poll of 900 U.S. voters was conducted from August 18-22 and the second survey of 600 voters took place between August 22-25.
Although mainstream media members and the president’s regular critics immediately pounced on the Cohen-Manafort news as proof that Trump was heading closer to impeachment proceedings and permeated the news cycle with their speculation, Trump’s popularity remained virtually unchanged.
As the late Jim Nabors would say as Gomer Pyle,
“Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!”
As I wrote on Saturday, average Americans can recognize a political railroading job when they see one.
The Democratic Party continues to overplay their hand, grossly overestimating their own intelligence while underestimating the intelligence of us Americans who live between the coasts in the Heartland of America.
You would have thought that they would have learned not to do that after their plans for a “Democratic Socialist Paradise” were obliterated on the night of November 8, 2016, when we “forgotten Americans” MADE them remember who we were.
Modern American Liberals, especially the Far Left Democratic Party, view themselves as “The Smartest People in the Room”
You can’t tell them a thing. They already know it all.
They thought beyond a shadow of a doubt that if they came up with a cockamamie story about Trump colluding with the Russians to sabotage the 2016 Presidential Election in order to defeat their “chosen one”, Hillary Clinton, that the American People would buy it hook, line, and sinker. All they thought they had to do was get a Special Counsel appointed who had political ties to both Clinton and Obama and who would, in turn, appoint Democratic Donors as his “investigators”.
Then that Special Counsel would be given free rein to broaden the scope of his “investigation”, charging everyone who ever even knew Trump with questionable crimes in order to flip them so that they could get to their real target, President Donald J. Trump.
And so far, their plan has been sort of successful…except for one little problem: The Americans who elected Donald J. Trump are still supporting the President, making the Democrats look like fools and their “not-so-silent” coup attempt appear feckless and nothing but Political Shenanigans or as Trump himself describes it, “A WITCH HUNT”.
So, what’s next?
Next, the Special Counsel and his “17 Angry Democrats” will enlist their brethren in the Southern District of New York to go after Trump’s Organization and his family.
Because, as the Democratic Party proved at least of couple of times during the Obama Administration, if they can’t beat our candidates or our traditional Americans Faith and Vlaues, they will use Liberals working in our Legal System to tear them down.
A strong, prosperous America and the safety and prosperity of average Americans do not matter to the self-righteous Power Brokers of the Far Left Democratic Party.
Regaining their power in Washington, D.C. does.
Until He Comes,
