Suddenly Trump has lost enthusiasm for his trial

by Dana Milbank

Nobody ever accused President Trump of being consistent.

For weeks, the president clamored for a “fair trial” in the Senate to clear him of impeachment charges.

“I look forward to it,” he said on New Year’s Eve.

Trump also stated he wanted his aides “to testify in the Senate where they’ll get a fair trial.” White House counsel Pat Cipollone urged House Democrats to finish impeachment “so we can have a fair trial in the Senate.”

Now the House is about to deliver the impeachment articles — and suddenly Trump has lost enthusiasm for a trial.

“Many believe that by the Senate giving credence to a trial,” Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon, “rather than an outright dismissal, it gives the partisan Democrat Witch Hunt credibility that it otherwise does not have. I agree!”

strategy. Going to hob nob with the Money Boys and Girls next week in Davos. That aught to be one hell of a disaster.. Those folks have real money,not Valds IOU's. Looks like the new Campaign is going to be based on the Economy and all the fake Numbers that are produced every other week.
