He already knows that is likely coming. This is just a delaying tactic. Trump’s looking for time to come up with an exit strategy.
The problem for his is that he has a LOT of experience executing on exit strategies, but none of them are viable as President. The Presidency is a very exposed spot. He cannot just declare bankruptcy and call his debts good. He cannot pay off a litigant and call it a nuisance settlement. Rudy Giuliani cannot submarine this investigation into him like he has in the past when he was a US Attorney.
He’s executing on a strategy that has worked for him in the past, which is making a ■■■■■■■■ of noise and confusion and accusing people of the exact behavior he engages in, but he and his team already know that’s only going to last so long.
I predict he will eventually kick over the table holding the chess board and then run out of the room blaming Democrats and the deep state.
Fully 60% of Republicans or about 25% of the country will believe and still support him when he does it. They’ll stand around tut-tutting him like a helicopter Mom telling him how he was wronged.
