Trump surrounded himself with yes-men who treated him like a cult leader.

As his impeachment trial looms, that could prove a disaster.

President Trump is on the back foot thanks to an intervention by Lev Parnas, a once-fanatical supporter involved in the Ukraine shadow diplomacy which prompted Trump's impeachment.

In a tell-all interview, Parnas spoke of a cult-like devotion to Trump which inverted after he was discarded.
The dynamic echoes that of Michael Cohen, another zealous Trump ally who turned on him.

-snip-

As he heads closer to becoming only the third president in US history to face an impeachment trial in the Senate, a familiar pattern is emerging in the associations that got President Donald Trump in this position.

At the same time, expectations that he could speed through the process with a fast, clean acquittal are beginning to evaporate.

2. Let us all hope that

John Roberts puts aside his gop bias, and rules according to strict laws. I have zero trust in anyone who ever supported the orange mistake. How could anyone be fooled by the total ignorance of tRump? It is laughable to see the "statesmen" who have already declared tRump innocent, stand and take a solemn oath to be fair. Yeah, right!!
