President Donald Trump was hugging the flag this past weekend — but there has been little love for him lately.
The House Judiciary Committee launched a broad investigation into the President’s inner circle. The congressional panel served document requests on 81 government agencies, entities and individuals as part of an investigation into alleged obstruction of justice and other abuses.
This, after Michael Cohen’s scathing three-day testimony before committees last week, accusing the president of alleged criminal acts.
“This phony deal that they put together, this phony deal that looks like it’s dying so they don’t have anything with Russia, there’s no collusion so they morphed into let’s inspect every deal he’s ever done, we’re gonna go into his finances, we’re check his deals, we’re gonna check his, these people are sick. They’re sick.”
Among those targeted by the Democratic-led House judiciary committee are the president’s sons, Trump organization officers and his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Political consultant, Cheryl Quinio-Blogett said special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigations have been cloaked in secrecy and confidentiality but Cohen’s testimony has opened a floodgate of other legal and political inquiries into Trump.
“Every single Friday comes out, you have to have the popcorn with you just to see what’s coming out that is gonna hurt or help the President and so far it has not bode well for the President.”
According to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released today, less than half of Americans, 46 percent, approve of Trump’s job performance.
While 60 percent disapprove of his recent national emergency declaration to build a border wall. That unpopularity reflects the support within the Republican party. But Trump’s supporters are steadfast in their defense.
88 percent of Republican voters, according to the poll, approve of Trump’s presidency.
