'You can't go any lower': Trump is apoplectic as allies fear impeachment

It's always wise to be looking over your shoulder when dealing with DJT. Ask Jared.
“YOU CAN’T GO ANY LOWER”: INSIDE THE WEST WING, TRUMP IS APOPLECTIC AS ALLIES FEAR IMPEACHMENT
After Monday’s indictments, the president blamed Jared Kushner in a call to Steve Bannon, while others are urging him to take off the gloves with Robert Mueller.


Until now, Robert Mueller has haunted Donald Trump’s White House as a hovering, mostly unseen menace. But by securing indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, and a surprise guilty plea from foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, Mueller announced loudly that the Russia investigation poses an existential threat to the president. “Here’s what Manafort’s indictment tells me: Mueller is going to go over every financial dealing of Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization,” said former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg. “Trump is at 33 percent in Gallup. You can’t go any lower. He’s fucked.”

The first charges in the Mueller probe have kindled talk of what the endgame for Trump looks like, according to conversations with a half-dozen advisers and friends of the president. For the first time since the investigation began, the prospect of impeachment is being considered as a realistic outcome and not just a liberal fever dream. According to a source, advisers in the West Wing are on edge and doing whatever they can not to be ensnared. One person close to Dina Powell and Gary Cohn said they’re making sure to leave rooms if the subject of Russia comes up.

The consensus among the advisers I spoke to is that Trump faces few good options to thwart Mueller. For one, firing Mueller would cross a red line, analogous to Nixon’s firing of Archibald Cox during Watergate, pushing establishment Republicans to entertain the possibility of impeachment. “His options are limited, and his instinct is to come out swinging, which won’t help things,” said a prominent Republican close to the White House.

Trump, meanwhile, has reacted to the deteriorating situation by lashing out on Twitter and venting in private to friends. He’s frustrated that the investigation seems to have no end in sight. “Trump wants to be critical of Mueller,” one person who’s been briefed on Trump’s thinking says. “He thinks it’s unfair criticism. Clinton hasn’t gotten anything like this. And what about Tony Podesta? Trump is like, When is that going to end?” According to two sources, Trump has complained to advisers about his legal team for letting the Mueller probe progress this far. Speaking to Steve Bannon on Tuesday, Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of Mike Flynn and James Comey, that led to Mueller’s appointment, according to a source briefed on the call. When Roger Stone recently told Trump that Kushner was giving him bad political advice, Trump agreed, according to someone familiar with the conversation. “Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history,” Nunberg said. “I’m only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and the Senate and Congress.”

Seriously. Trump is so stupid he probably truly didn't understand what was going on around him. I mean DUH--he was surrounded by ALL these guys (including Junior) who had ties to Russia, talked regularly with Russia, had taken money from Russia, lied about Russia.........but hey--Donnie is clueless.

It doesn't surprise me a bit that Trump is apoplectic. Life is so unfair. Being president is HARD. Not everyone LOVES the Donald. Sad face.

Oh yeah, Trump is stupid. We're all stupid. Just deplorable. The children are unhappy, adults are in charge in the classroom.

But then when multiple people in Trump's campaign are snared in the first fell swoop, it's all irrelevant.

Adults? I suggest you read Dot.Don's twitter feed.

Although, come to think of it, you probably would think that was adult conversation.

US PEOPLE?? With that kind of "grammar", it's easy to understand your devotion to Trump. You both speak/write like junior high students.

Why is anyone surprised by DT's behavior? That's what one does when one has the emotional maturity of an autistic 4-year-old. He has screaming fits and tries to blame everyone around him. He should be impeached just for the fact that after 11 month's on the job he still can't put together a constitutionally intelligible agenda, changing his mind constantly and meddling in affairs that are beyond the bounds of his office, double-talking and continually reversing his own opinions, denial, denial, denial that isn't plausible to any analytical person not hypnotized by his inflated center-stage Andy Jackson persona. Bottom line: you can't take seriously anything the man says. If the fact checkers don't promptly catch him lying through his teeth, then just wait until the next day when he says exactly the opposite or at the very least tries to back away from it with another lie.
