Impeachment House Distraction May be Good News for Trump

The potential impeachment of President Donald Trump and the ongoing military conflict in Syria continue to dominate the headlines, with little else able to generate interest. Ironically, this could be good news for the President, as the Democrats’ 2018 gains were due to Americans’ concern with health insurance, prescription drugs, and climate change. But these Democratic issues have been pushed aside in the headlong dive into impeachment. Indeed, the Democratic debate got little attention in this environment.

Nevertheless, Mick Mulvaney, the acting chief of staff, seems to have dug the hole deeper for President in the House of Representatives, when Mulvaney admitted in a press conference that a Ukrainian military aide was held hostage to political agenda. It seems hard to see how Mulvaney can survive as Trump is likely to look for scapegoat for political mess the chief of staff created, or how he can walk back a comment said at the White House briefing room and taped by all the media outlets. With the troubles in Syria, China trade talks, and impeachment imbroglio, President Trump will need some help to manage the issues, and it will be a tough time to look for a fourth chief of staff.
