Trump’s the guy who would sue an automaker for damages because his getaway car got a flat, just as he said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose voters. That remains true as long as he can afford lawyers.

Yesterday featured another weak dog-wag with the Turkish incursion into Syria, but that’s perhaps the best that PABOTUS* can do under the circumstances to divert attention away from the Ukraine situation and the impeachment.

Pelosi: “The White House letter is only the latest attempt to cover up his betrayal of our democracy, and to insist that the President is above the law.”

A spokesman for the Turkish president, Recep Tayyap Erdoğan, justified the impending invasion by saying that Trump, in a telephone conversation with Erdoğan on Sunday, had handed Turkey the mantle of the counter-Isis battle that the US has been waging alongside Kurdish forces since late 2014.

Fahrettin Altun, Erdoğan’s communications director and one of his closest aides, suggested Trump had given the Turkish leader the green light for an invasion, contradicting denials from White House officials.

“During a phone call with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Sunday, President Trump agreed to transfer the leadership of the counter-Islamic State campaign to Turkey,” Altun wrote in a commentary in the Washington Post published on Tuesday evening. “The Turkish military, together with the Free Syrian Army, will cross the Turkish-Syrian border shortly.”
