1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump and Mike Pence are about to have the most uncomfortable lunch date of all time

  • 1.1K

As his world begins collapsing in on him, Donald Trump is going from doing very little “presidenting” to doing none at all. His public schedule for Monday is completely empty, apart from his customary lunch meeting with Mike Pence. This itself isn’t newsworthy; he dines with Pence on a regularly set schedule. But the lunch couldn’t be coming at a worse time for either of them – and they’re probably going to have some very cross words for each other.




For weeks, Donald Trump has reportedly been trying to poach Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Nick Ayers to be the White House Chief of Staff. Ayers must have clearly said yes to the job, because Trump announced on Saturday that John Kelly was departing. Then on Sunday, Ayers suddenly decided that he didn’t want the promotion, and he no longer wanted the job he had. Trump and Pence both lost the guy they wanted, and now neither of them has a Chief of Staff. That’s a good way to throw a monkey wrench into the Trump-Pence dynamic – but it’s only the half of it.




Even as staffers make clear that they’re no longer betting on Trump or Pence surviving this, the two men are now trying to eat each other. The Michael Flynn sentencing memo on Tuesday seemed to be Robert Mueller’s way of telling Pence to start packing. Then, the next day, a story leaked that Trump was considering replacing Pence on the 2020 ticket. It’s not that either of them is going to be in position to run in 2020, but Trump’s decision to leak this nastygram was quite the way to publicly kick Pence while he was down.



So what on earth could Donald Trump and Mike Pence have to say to each other during their scheduled lunch on Monday? Will one of them blow it off at the last minute? Will they just spend the whole time throwing food at each other? There comes a point in every imploding regime where the principal players turn on each other, out of necessity or frustration or spite. They just don’t usually dine together while they’re eating each other.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: House Democrats lay the groundwork for ousting Donald Trump in a way that’s quicker than impeachment

  • 1.1K

When it comes to ousting Donald Trump, impeachment by the House followed by removal by the Senate is just about the slowest possible method. It would require using Trump’s crimes and scandals to gradually grind him into such a pulp, twenty Republican Senators end up convinced that they have to selfishly agree to remove him in order to protect their own political prospects. There are faster methods for ouster, and the House Democrats are now coalescing around one of them.




On Friday night, the U.S. Attorney’s office for SDNY formally accused Donald Trump of two counts of felony cheating in the 2016 election. Are any Senate Republicans going to agree to vote for Trump’s removal based on these two charges alone? No. There are, of course, dozens more felony counts coming against Trump before much longer. But House Democrats are already explaining to Trump that the minute his time as president is over, he’ll be indicted and arrested. So why is this a winning strategy?




On the surface, it sounds counterintuitive. If Donald Trump figures out that he’s going to prison the minute he’s finished as president, wouldn’t that make him less likely to ever resign? The trouble for Trump is that his time as president will end eventually – and the statute of limitations will still be in effect for many of the felony charges he’ll be facing. In other words, he’s going to prison for the rest of his life.



That brings us to what House Democrats are trying to do with this new narrative, which we’re now hearing this weekend from Adam Schiff and others. If they can convince Donald Trump that his life is over the minute his presidency ends, he may conclude that his least bad option is to offer his immediate resignation in exchange for some degree of criminal leniency. Don’t worry, New York state will still put him in prison for life. But he’s probably arrogant enough to think he can beat the state level charges.
