‘The bottom is going to fall out’: Republicans are privately discussing abandoning Trump


Mod: In the end it will be a fear for their own hide that will cause Republicans to pull the plug on Trump. It might be the only way for them to save the GOP.

‘The bottom is going to fall out’: White House reporter says Republicans are privately discussing abandoning Trump (Raw Story link): Donald Trump is facing a “looming problem” as Republicans contemplate abandoning the president as more evidence of wrongdoing comes to light, Los Angeles Times White House reporter Eli Stokols explained on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” on Monday.

Host Nicolle Wallace played a clip of Trump supporter and former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie wondering what additional evidence special counsel Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors in Manhattan have obtained.

“And you’ve seen the president attacking Michael Cohen and basically asking the public to dismiss what he’s saying by saying, ‘Look, this guy is just trying to get a better deal for himself, don’t believe him.’

But as Chris Christie pointed out, the Mueller investigation, Southern District of New York, they probably have a lot more evidence than just the word of Michael Cohen and that has to worry the president,” Stokols explained. “Yes, he and Rudy Giuliani on some level believe they can continue to attack the investigators, to try and convince the public that there’s something nefarious and something politically motivated about this,” he noted. “But when all the facts are laid out and people can see the investigators’ work, I think it’s going to be very problematic for this president.”

Republicans on Capitol Hill are also growing anxious.

“And there is some understanding, I think, inside the White House of just how dark it may be getting, especially in terms of conversations — private conversations — that people there are having with Republicans on the Hill who are starting to be concerned,” Stokols reported.

Republican lawmakers who are — have a huge role to play in this if it goes forward — are starting to tell me privately, some of them, that, you know, if there’s obvious evidence, the bottom is going to fall out,” he explained.

“They’re not going to be able to stand by this White House and that’s a looming problem for the president,” he concluded.

Republican Fears Grow That Trump Is Leading Them To Doom In 2020 (PoliticusUSA link): Republicans are growing more fearful that Trump is not ready for what’s coming, and is leading his party into a 2020 disaster.

NBC News’s Geoff Bennett reported, “I can tell you there’s a growing fear. Certainly growing anxiety among Trump allies and Republicans that the White House is in no way prepared for the legal and political danger and drama that awaits and that the fall out could damage the party’s prospects in 2020. Why is that? You’ve got Democrats seizing control of Congress in three weeks time with subpoena power. There’s turmoil in the global financial market from the Trump trade war. You have the Russia investigation picking up speed, and you’ve got those new court filings out Friday implicating President Trump in a felony.”

There is a recession coming. The Russia investigations are getting stronger, not slowing down. In weeks, Democrats will control the House and be able to do whatever they want. Meanwhile, the White House is a neverending ball of chaos that continues to spin in circles while accomplishing nothing.

Republican governors have already been trying to warn their party that unless they get off of the Trump course, a disaster is coming in 2020. What the governors mean by disaster is that Republicans will lose the Senate, the White House, and state legislatures, and governors. The people in the Republican Party who are willing to see the reality of what’s coming are exponentially outnumbered by Trump Kool-Aid drinkers, and those who fear the president.

If Republicans thought that 2018 was a bad year for them, it might be the tip of the iceberg compared to what is coming their way in 2020. Democrats got a taste of victory in 2018, and now they want it all in 2020, and the Republican Party under Trump might be too unpopular to stop them.

    1. TIME has chosen Jamal Khashoggi and other journalists as 2018's 'Person of the Year'.

      Time's 2018 'Person of the Year' is killed and imprisoned journalists
      Time magazine is spotlighting a handful of journalists who have one thing in common: They were targeted for their work.

      Others: The staff of Maryland’s Capital Gazette; Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo; Maria Ressa, CEO of a news outlet in the Philippines targeted by Duterte.

      That's what Time magazine is calling the journalists behind 2018's "Person of the Year," which was revealed exclusively Tuesday morning on "Today."

      With a record number of reporters behind bars around the planet — the Committee to Protect Journalists documented 262 cases in 2017 — an avalanche of misinformation on social media and government officials from the United States to the Philippines dismissing critical, real reporting as "fake news," Time is spotlighting a handful of journalists who have one thing in common: They were targeted for their work.

      For them, pursuing the truth has meant prison and harassment. In some cases, it has meant death.

  10. Republicans have known about the Trump Crime Syndicate's conspiracy against the United States and other crimes all along. They should have been speaking out for at least two years, but they went along for their own personal and professional gain. They deserve no sympathy for their "plight" and need to have the orange albatross hanging around their necks for the rest of their days. They now begin to speak out after providing cover for years? Will they express shock? Will they claim they were just following their leader's orders? They are more hypocritical than their masters. History must name them. They deserve no quarter.

    2. what does the murdered journalist’s nationality has to do with it? Time has been nominating people from around the world for decades. His murder at the hands of an autocratic regime is a globally newsworthy event and symbolism of the danger other journalists face in shining light on darkness.

      Who would your Person of the year be? And why are you so upset about this person receiving Times award?

  19. A few trolls have lurked atriums the Tattler for a long time. Every chat room has ‘em. I do honestly think at least one is paid to post disinformation regarding Trump/Russia collision.

    The particularly nasty troll today who seems not mind journalists being murdered got me thinking about how important the role of the press is to free society. Serious. Even our local Mod has shined the light on dark dealings over the years to our greater benefit. Here’s a list of all the journalists who were killed/murdered for doing their job last year, the 2018 list might be even longer:
