Washington( CNN) A new report aimed at defending Donald Trump against Democratic claims of abuse of power represented a remarkable demonstration of the President’s greatest political accomplishment — the transformation of the Republican Party in his image.
“I think it’s very unpatriotic of the Democrats, ” Trump said of the impeachment process Tuesday in London alongside NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. “I think it’s a bad thing for our country. Impeachment wasn’t supposed to be used that way.”
Trump isn’t waiting to hear the formal case against him because he doesn’t have to. Ultimately, it will make little change since his defense was long ago unmoored from fact and is based on selling a disinformational narrative to his adherents that sows confusion and devalues truth for everyone else.
