Impeachment is Trump's ultimate victim card

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she’s concerned for President Donald Trump’s well-being. “I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country,” Pelosi said at her weekly news conference. She suggested that “maybe he wants to take a leave of absence.” But she also suggested that he is “crying out” for impeachment, and that’s closer to the truth. It would be the ultimate way to portray himself as a victim.

This is Trump’s go-to strategy. At a campaign rally Monday in Montoursville, Pennsylvania, for instance, Trump repeated his false accusations that the FBI and the Democrats had committed treason by “spying” on his campaign. “And it should never be allowed to happen to another president again. Ever, ever, ever,” he said.

Trump’s penchant for this line of thinking is also reflected in his approving amplification of recent remarks and tweets by Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch (a conservative foundation with the ironic tag line, “Because no one is above the law!”)
