Maggie Haberman: ‘Disgusted’ Republicans Now Privately Admitting They Regret Supporting Trump
New York Times reporter and CNN contributor Maggie Haberman appeared on New Day Friday morning and revealed insight into the current turmoil in Washington D.C.
In light of the many issues challenging the Trump administration — border wall funding and threatened government shutdown, a tanking stock market, a very controversial Syrian withdrawal and a stunning protest resignation of Defense Secretary of James Mattis — host John Berman asked his guest if all of this drama was really about President Donald Trump’s survival in the White House.
Calling it a “critical moment,” Haberman reported that there was waning support for Trump from the right, saying “A number of conservatives who worked on the campaign and supported the president and now say, you know, I regret doing that, and this was a mistake, this administration is, you know, off the rails, and all of these investigations that are coming to a head will be a huge problem.”
She adding that these conservatives “disgusted” with details that have emerged from the Michael Cohen plea deal. In her eyes, investigations into Trump’s campaign are ” going to intensify as we get into the year” before bringing up impeachment. “It takes 20 Republican senators to vote in favor of impeachment. This could be a critical moment.”
