Team Trump — Rumbling, Fumbling, Bungling Impeachment

“As televised impeachment hearings roll into Week 2, one surprise has been how many of the Trump team’s wounds have been self-inflicted, because of his allies’ curious habit of leaking on themselves. … The leaks and revelations have thrown President Trump into a constant state of defensiveness, and turned a growing number of Republicans into frustrated, sometimes bewildered, defenders. … From revelations about secret servers to off-the-books diplomacy said to resemble ‘drug deals,’ many of the juiciest details about the impeachment case came not from Democrats but from Team Trump.”
