WaPo’s Rucker: ‘We’ve Been Saying the Walls Are Closing in’ on Trump ‘for Two Years’

‘We’ve been saying the walls are closing in for two years, but it feels like they’re closing right now because this is so much more sort of substantive’

EXCERPT:

RUCKER: “Yeah, I mean, we’ve been saying the walls are closing in for two years, but it feels like they’re actually closing right now because this is so much more sort of substantive. It’s not speculative. It’s actually happening. His personal attorney is actually going to be going to jail. There is an actual crime, felony, that the President has been implicated in by the Justice Department. By the Southern District of New York. And he’s coming at it with so little credibility. Remember, the President lied outright about not knowing anything about these payments and had his spokespeople say so as well. And month after month as we learn more and more and we’ve learned a lot in the last 24, 48 hours, it’s exposed him. It’s not having much credibility with this case and exposed him in being much more involved than he’s been willing to admit until now. And so it’s a difficult space for him to be in, and it’s why some of the people who work for him or are advising him or friends of him feel so concerned right now because they just don’t know where this is all headed and it feels very uncertain and uncomfortable.”
