The Memo: Trump allies fret as legal troubles multiply

By Niall Stanage - 02/11/19 06:00 AM EST

President Trump’s legal troubles are spiraling and even some people who are supportive of his agenda worry about what comes next. “They are going after every aspect of his business and his finances, and they have unlimited resources. It’s a huge concern because the Democrats are not on a search for truth but to destroy him and his presidency,” one Republican campaign consultant told The Hill.

Brad Blakeman, a veteran of President George W. Bush’s administration and a strong backer of Trump, insisted that the president had done nothing wrong but acknowledged that the various probes he now faces are so time-intensive that they “take away from his ability to govern.”

But others broadly sympathetic to Trump worry about whether his verbal assaults on Mueller and other tormentors backfire, deepening suspicions.

Mark Corallo, a communications strategist who served briefly as the spokesman for the president’s outside legal team in 2017, said he can understand why Trump gets so aggravated by the various probes aimed at him. “That being said, I don’t think it helps to call the Mueller investigation a ‘witch hunt.’ It’s not a witch hunt,” he said. “It’s a serious investigation being conducted by a serious, fair-minded, honorable American lawyer.” Corallo added that he believed the main peril facing Trump was political rather than legal. “His peril is being seen as unreasonable and irrational in front of the electorate.

1. I don't understand...

… why Trump and his allies are so worried. They think Trump is a legitimate, wonderful man. Why worry? Cancel all the non-disclosure agreements... Have open, pubic hearings for EVERYONE! No executive privileges! Release all the tax returns, National Enquirer stories, memos, emails... EVERYTHING, now! Let us all see what a lovely human being he is!

3. How can you take away his ability to govern?

That would be like stealing a million bucks from me. Impossible. I don't have it. Neither does her have any ability to govern.
