Impeachment polling notably well in onetime GOP strongholds Georgia and Texas

As Democrats increasingly eye Texas and Georgia as potential swing states in the making, recent polling from both states has revealed an electorate surprisingly open to the impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump. In Georgia, 54% of registered voters support the inquiry, while 44% oppose it, according to the latest Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll. And when it comes to the question of whether Trump should be removed from office, Georgians are evenly split at 47% for and against. Wow. That puts the polling from Georgia, once a reliably red stronghold, perfectly in line with—and even a touch above—national polling on the matter. On the eve of the public hearings, in fact, the FiveThirtyEight aggregate showed 51% of Americans support the inquiry, while 47.4% support Trump's removal from office. Earlier this month, a University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll also held some surprising findings, with a plurality of Texas voters voicing support for the impeachment investigations, 46%-42%. Texas voters were also almost evenly split on Trump's removal from office. When asked, “Based on what you know, do you think that Donald Trump has taken actions while president that justify his removal from office?" 43% respond yes and 44% say no. It’s worth repeating: Texas voters are evenly split on Trump’s ejection from office. That is truly stunning.

Impeachment is not exactly bringing these feuding Trump advisers closer together

The Trump White House can’t get through an average Monday morning without infighting, backstabbing, and leaks about the infighting and backstabbing, so why would a full-blown impeachment inquiry be any different? It is not. Some of Donald Trump’s top advisers are at war with each other as they fight out the best impeachment strategy but also jockey for personal position with Trump and in the proceedings. Take acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. Mulvaney responded to a House subpoena to testify by first trying to piggyback onto the subpoena-related lawsuit of one of former national security adviser John Bolton’s top deputies, Charles Kupperman, who had been on the other side of Trump’s Ukraine extortion from Mulvaney. Mulvaney was pro-extortion, while the Bolton camp was against it. So why was Mulvaney seeking to join Kupperman’s legal case asking if he had to comply with a subpoena? Mulvaney had some nonsense claim about how he wasn’t really suing his boss, Trump—he was suing House Democrats. Except that Trump had ordered everyone to just refuse subpoenas, not to ask the courts what they should do. After being met with a cold shoulder on Kupperman’s suit, Mulvaney announced that he would launch his own court case, and then ultimately decided to give up on the courts and just do what Trump had ordered to begin with. Mulvaney meanwhile is carrying on a running feud with White House counsel Pat Cipollone, whose office released the disastrous partial transcript of the July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Mulvaney opposed releasing that call. Cipollone, though, has cause for serious frustration with Mulvaney after the press briefing in which Mulvaney admitted that Trump withheld aid from Ukraine to try to pressure the country into digging up or manufacturing dirt on his political opponents. Both men have tried to control the hires of impeachment strategists and lawyers, with Mulvaney coming out on the losing end. But some House Republicans are now frustrated with Cipollone for getting in the way of hiring former Benghazi czar Trey Gowdy—in part, it’s believed, because Cipollone wants to personally lead the cross-examination in a Senate impeachment trial. Mulvaney also believes, not without reason, that Cipollone might be a threat to his job, at which he’s still in an acting capacity. According to The New York Times, while “people close to Cipollone” said that he’s not interested in the chief of staff job, they also “acknowledged that there were previous discussions with Mr. Trump about such a shift.” So these guys hate each other. And they are two of the top advisers who should be helping Trump through this process, not that Trump can ever follow anyone’s advice anyway. But what the White House does have going for it is absolute obedience from House Republicans, and that’s worth a lot.

Trump ally and Fox News analyst diGenova compares whistleblower to ... John Wilkes Booth?

In a report that gleefully names the alleged Trump-Ukraine whistleblower in its headline (which is why we will not be linking to it here), the right-wing Washington Examiner cites loudmouthed Trump ally and frequent Fox News guest lawyer Joe diGenova as calling the whistleblower's report a «political assassination,» the «decapitation of a president,» «regicide,» and comparing the whistleblower to John Wilkes Booth. He apparently then ate a live gerbil mid-interview, or something. Hard to imagine how you'd top the claim that reporting an apparent crime by a sitting president—one that had much of his White House in a panic due to the obvious, brazen corruption of the act—is akin to the murder of Abraham Lincoln, but if you've ever stumbled upon one of diGenova's Fox News acts you'll know that he man does subtlety like a hippo does ballet. DiGenova's extreme opinions—and the urgency with which he has been trying to spread the name of the single whistleblower, among all of Trump's officials, toadies, and legal scrubbers, who actually came forward to report an apparent crime rather than just looking bug-eyed at each other while helping to cover it up—may have less to do with his one-sided loyalty to Dear Leader than the fact that diGenova and his also-Fox-News-guest wife have been getting paid, to the tune of a million bucks or so, to defend Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash, wanted on conspiracy charges by the U.S. government due to his criming ways. And just to make it perfectly clear what his angle is in all this, diGenova and wife Victoria Toensing's work for Firtash consisted of, among other things, helping to «dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden last summer» in an effort to get Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's help in getting the Trump Department of Justice to drop its case against the Ukrainian oligarch. Got that? DiGenova and Toensing, working for a U.S.-sought Ukrainian criminal, had been trying to dig up Joe Biden dirt in a brazen attempt to quid-pro-quo their way into Rudy Giuliani using his tight Trump connections to get Trump and Attorney General William Barr to quash the U.S. prosecution of their own Ukrainian bigshot client. So yes, now that someone stepped forward to report on Trump and Giuliani's crackpot scheme to exchange conspiracy-invented Biden «dirt» for the release of held-up Ukrainian military aid, a lawyer for one of the criminals implicated in that very plan is VERY SURE that snitching about it to authorities is worse than assassinating Abraham Lincoln, exclamation point, loud burping noise. And he would absolutely think that even if he hadn't pocketed a fat million bucks and spent the summer implicating himself in the multi-fronted «drug deal» Giuliani was cooking up.
