The duel will serve to unite the Republican Party in Washing

  gton behind the President — amid some signs of cracks opening in the GOP edifice in the Senate, at least, over his national emergency declaration.

  It will be a rallying moment that will enrage and enthuse Trump‘s base ahead of the 2020 cam

paign. That may mean he can avoid risky strategies, such as the disastrous government shutdown, to keep his troops motivated.

  Republicans are already working off the Trump playbook, which is designed to present him as the victim of unfair presidential persecution by Democrats.

  ”He just believes they are out to take a wrecking ball to his life,” Republican Sen. Lind

sey Graham of South Carolina said Tuesday after meeting the President. “They’ll go nuts.”

  Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas warned that the Democratic investiga

tion was less about finding the truth and more about ousting a President.

  ”It’s all about setting up the stage for impeachment proceedings. That’s pretty clear,” Cornyn told CNN’s Manu Raju.

  Republicans make such arguments in the knowledge that the nation, despite Trump’s unpopularity and w

idespread suspicions about his conduct, is not yet ready for the trauma of the third impeachment drama in 50 years.
