On Thursday NBC News reported that President Donald Trump is a lot more worried about legal consequences for his misconduct than he is letting on to the public:
Despite President Donald Trump’s public declaration that he isn’t concerned about impeachment – he has told people close to him in recent days that he is alarmed by the prospect – according to multiple sources.
Trump’s fear about the possibility has escalated as the consequences of federal investigations involving his associates and Democratic control of the House sink in – the sources said and his allies believe maintaining the support of establishment Republicans he bucked to win election is now critical to saving his presidency.
Earlier this week in an interview with Reuters Trump dismissed impeachment threats – saying ‘It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country’.
He also added that ‘the people would revolt’ if he was impeached — an incredibly dangerous sentiment from the nation’s foremost enforcer of the rule of law.
