President Trump will fight. The Democrats now know that. He just fired a shot across Pelosi’s bow that clearly detailed the political ramifications behind her harassment.
We have an election fast approaching and as the left ratches up their investigations, Trump just revealed his plan to fight back.
He will sue when he needs to, he will claim executive privilege and he will dare the Democrats to hold his people in contempt. Eric Holder was held in contempt, by the way, and he ignored every notice and avoided all consequences. In other words, this will be held up in court for the next two years and even then Trump can ignore Pelosi.
“We have been, I have been the most transparent president and administration in the history of our country by far,” Trump said. “I say it’s enough,” Trump said. “Get back to infrastructure get back to cutting taxes get back to lowering drug prices.”
Facing a multi-front war in the post-Mueller world, President Trump is turning to litigation strategies that he long used in business — resist, delay and sue.
What they’re saying: “Trump can run out the clock by taking a hardline position,” a source familiar with the president’s legal strategy told me. “The president thinks it’s in his political interest to keep the fight going, and make it harder for the Democrats to have a coherent message.”
Trump told the WashPost’s Robert Costa yesterday that he is opposed to current and former White House aides providing testimony to congressional panels.
“There is no reason to go any further, and especially in Congress where it’s very partisan — obviously very partisan,” Trump said.
The day before, the Trump Organization sued House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) to block a subpoena that seeks years of the president’s financial records.

From Yahoo: President Donald Trump threatened Wednesday to fight a possible impeachment effort by Congressional Democrats in the US Supreme Court.
That could be difficult — the US constitution, and the court itself, have made clear that it has no role in impeachment proceedings, which represent the legislature’s power to check wrongdoing by the president.
But Trump’s tweet suggested the White House is taking seriously a debate among Democrats on whether to launch the process that could remove the president on the basis of evidence of obstruction of justice in the Mueller report released last week.
“The Mueller Report, despite being written by Angry Democrats and Trump Haters, and with unlimited money behind it ($35,000,000), didn’t lay a glove on me. I DID NOTHING WRONG,” Trump wrote.
“If the partisan Dems ever tried to Impeach, I would first head to the US Supreme Court.”
