tRump establishes impeachment war room

Trump's team is trying to stop impeachment before it starts

Donald Trump’s lawyers insist they don’t need to form an impeachment defense team.

Yet here’s what they have: At least 30 White House and Justice Department attorneys who have worked on related issues. Several personal lawyers for the president dealing with the subject. A lurking presence at Capitol Hill impeachment-focused hearings. Aggressive legal briefs and countersuits foiling efforts to gather fuel for potential proceedings. Near-daily media appearances discussing the topic.

That the president’s representatives don’t want to call their work what it is — preventing Trump’s potential impeachment — is no surprise. Any recognition that they’ve taken such an official step would be a giant red flag that they think things are more serious than they are. Still, the Trump lawyers’ combined mission effectively is to stop impeachment before it starts.

“No one is prepping for anything like that,” said Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, the longest-serving member of the Trump personal legal team, when asked to describe the president’s legal strategy for impeachment. “We’ve got very capable lawyers handling the issues that are currently pending and we’ll work on those as appropriate.”

Impeachment has actually long been on the minds of the president and his lawyers. - Politico

2. Making sure the deck chairs on the Titanic are all looking good



Trump has admitted to treason in public and on tape. They can have all their "war rooms"
they want but it will not stop Trump's "day of judgement" from coming
