Here’s what T’s campaign positioning is going for - Calling everything having to do with Russia Investigation - 'Spygate," and now is the time to “Investigate the Investigator.”
It falls into that low bar of attack-mode of the opponent…much like the “lock her up” rallying cry.
I am hopeful that the Dems can bypass this, humiliate him…shame him for his wayward tactics, and inhumane treatment of immigrants, environment, reporters and his idiotic and imbecilic tendencies. Shame-techniques is what I am hearing from some Dems…as well as don’t take his bait.
For President Trump’s reelection effort, “Investigate the investigators!” is becoming the new “Lock her up!”
Trump and his allies, seeking to amplify claims that the FBI spied on his 2016 campaign, are seizing on news reports and statements by Attorney General William P. Barr to launch a political rallying cry they view as an antidote to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings.
Dismissed by critics as an outlandish conspiracy theory, so-called “spygate” is fast becoming a central feature of the Trump campaign as it seeks to go on offense in the wake of a report that identified 10 instances of potential obstruction of justice by Trump. The campaign is publicly calling for criminal investigations into former FBI officials, making “spygate” fundraising pitches and selling spy-themed merchandise. The goal, officials said, is to turn the Russia probe into a political winner that could help him secure another term.
Trump has long sought to paint his political opponents as criminally suspect, spending much of 2016 leading “Lock her up!” chants that targeted his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
