    Schumer: 'The president is in trouble'

    ... Schumer said Trump's claims of wiretapping are attempts at diverting attention away from the questions about his campaign's ties to the Russians, which took on new significance after Sessions recused himself from any investigation after admitting he met twice with the Russian ambassador. And the Democratic leader said he has "doubts" that Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) can get to the bottom of the entire saga given Burr's interventions with some media organizations over their reporting on the matter ...

    Schumer: 'The president is in trouble'

    I agree, Trump is in trouble and has been from day 1. But for me, that doesn't take the Democrats off the hook and they shouldn't be so quick to gloat or celebrate over the discombobulated White House in its current state. They too have a huge issue and hurdle to get over. From what I'm seeing so far, they are going down the same path of destruction because they refuse to return to the core values of the political party.

    The reason the Dems have a problem is they fail to campaign on fear.
    The rethugs campaign on we will get rid of the criminals(Blacks), be tough on crime (put Blacks in jail), cut entitlements (Blacks on welfare, food stamps).

    When searching and reading about Clintons crime bill, he signed the bill and said
    "Let them say I'm not tough on crime now".
    In other words he created the crime to show the rethugs Dems/or he, can be tough on crime/Black People.
    I've been wondering if Dems should change focus and lie like the rethugs instead of lying like a Dem.
