From Robert Reich Blog
This morning I phoned my friend, a former Republican member of Congress.
Me: What's going on? Seems like the White House is imploding and Republicans are going down with the ship.
Him (chuckling): We're officially a banana republic.
Me: Seriously, what are you hearing from your former colleagues on the Hill?
Him: They're convinced Trump is out of his gourd.
Me: So what are they gonna do about it?
Him: Remember what I told you at the start of this circus? They planned to use Trump's antics for cover, to get done what they most wanted -- big tax cuts, rollbacks of regulations, especially financial. They'd work with Pence behind the scenes and forget the crazy uncle in the attic.
Him: Well, I'm hearing a different story now. Stuff with Sessions is pissing them off. And now Trump's hired that horse's ass Scaramucci -- a communications director who talks dirty on CNN! Plus Trump's numbers are in freefall. They think he's gonna hurt them in '18 and '20.
Me: So what's the plan?
Him: They want him outta there.
Me: Really? Impeachment?
Him: Doubt it, unless Mueller comes up with a smoking gun.
Me: Or if he fires Mueller.
