Who Will Betray Trump?

Gettyimages 626524674It’s only a matter of time.

’Donald Trump knows there are potential traitors in his midst. His presidency could depend on keeping them at bay…

The latest impeachment resolution was starkly divided along partisan lines, but whether the Republican caucus will remain steadfast may depend on how some members weigh their support or distaste for the president against their own electoral futures, or lack thereof…

Trump can be impeached in the House with Democratic votes alone. But whether or not he’s convicted in the Senate will be determined by Republican votes.

What if Lamar Alexander, the retiring statesman from Tennessee who has struggled to mask his disillusionment with Trump’s destruction of norms, decides to go out with a bang?

What if Cory Gardner, whose reelection in Colorado seems destined to be doomed by the top of the ticket, thinks his next act in politics depends on establishing distance from Trump?

What if Ben Sasse or Pat Toomey or Rob Portman, all thoughtful conservatives in the Burkean tradition, reach a point where they feel compelled to meet a moment on behalf of their party and their country and perhaps even their constituents, as upset as many of them might be?…’

    “Betray” ? Anyone who gets paid enough in the right kinds of currency, but who cares. Will his base (really meaning the GOP-supporting base) change their support for any such development?

      Well, Barr stepped to plate and his dismissal of an Epstein murder conspiracy has less than a 1 in 1024 chance of being correct. Then again, who in this f*cked up country is gonna check my math?

      Well, there it is! Barr AND Durham. This ongoing drama has the feeling of being directed by a wife afflicted with Borderline Personality Disorder.

    It’s Barr or Durham, probably Barr. And it’s already happening. Trump is likely part of the scheme as his soul is equal parts venal and avarice.

      “Trump is likely part of the scheme…” In on the betrayal? No challenge from me, just curious: how would that tactic play out well for him?

    Scheme, probably better to have used drama. President Trump does well to avoid incarceration (for him and his family) and, perhaps, maintain his miniature-hand grip on this mortal coil. Who says President Trump is aware of a scheme working out well for him? Also just asking. For whom do Barr and Durham ultimately answer anyhow? Despite my disregard for Trump, no good comes from an intelligence community driven removal of a president, ever.
