Donald Trump went down in history as the first US president to face impeachment twice. According to one White House adviser, the administration is “all evil to all.” And the 45th American president himself is upset because he believes that his people do not protect him well.
“He is in a state of self-pity,” he said CNN unnamed interlocutor from the White House.
Many members of Trump’s inner circle believe that “his own actions are to blame for everything.” He will also build the belief that he “pushed the crowd to attack the Capitol building,” so he will not be able to find many “sympathetic Republicans.” During the first impeachment process, Trump’s allies publicly defended him both inside and outside the White House. They sent out key theses of the common position throughout the process.
Today, the 45th President of the United States was left alone in the White House. He first made a statement on Fox News, condemning further violence. And then he posted a five-minute video, the tone of which was very different from the statement immediately after the storming of the Capitol last week. Assistants tried to find a way to publish a new video of Trump, fearing that no one would want to take even a video with remorse. There were also no organized attempts to formulate key theses of the common position, as during the first impeachment.
Many members of the White House resigned or resigned after the storming of the Capitol. Even his old colleague Hope Hicks left Trump. Another source close to the White House said that “it is locked in the residence, and this is always a bad sign.”
“He’s on his own. There aren’t many people to drive away different ideas. When that happens, he turns to his worst instincts. Now that Twitter isn’t available, only God knows what he’ll do,” he told CNN.
One of Trump’s possible next steps is to use the power he still has. He can start giving pardons. Various sources told CNN that the next “pack of pardons” may appear today. This is partly due to the need to divert attention from current events. The question of whether Trump will have mercy on himself and his children also remains open.
One of Trump’s entourage is convinced that this is a bad idea in the face of the storming of the Capitol. But the 45th president wants to use the power he still has.
CNN also writes that enraged by the second impeachment, Trump ordered not to pay his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. Although assistants are not sure whether these instructions should be taken seriously. Trump accuses his longtime lawyer, as well as many others, of the predicament in which he now finds himself. He does not take any responsibility for the situation, either publicly or in private. Giuliani is expected to still play a role in defending Trump during the impeachment process. But he no longer participates in the discussions.
