Every tweet, every Giuliani interview, every leaked memo, every lie looks like what could be called a four-point strategy and his legal team with one goal in mind — to convince the public, or at least enough voters out there, not to trust anyone but team trump. Point one, lie. Or at least recollect differently. For example, Trump’s attorneys have denied for months that the president had anything whatsoever to do with the misleading statement drafted aboard air force one. The statement claimed don Jr. Only let a Kremlin-linked lawyer to talk about adoptions. Now trump’s legal team admits the president was not just involved he actually dictated the statement.

Point two, discredit the investigation. Trump has tweeted about the investigation and that it is a witch hunt specifically 52 times. This morning he tried to again claim the investigators are biased. Quote, the never-ending witch hunt led by 13 very angry and conflicted Democrats and others continues into the mid-terms.”

Point three. Muddy the waters to confuse the public. Like this. Paul manafort came into the campaign very late, Trump says, and was with us for a short period of time. Again, not true!

…..

Finally, point four, paint Donald Trump the victim. Trump blamed the FBI for not warning him about his campaign chairman. Quote, we should have been told that Comey and the boys were doing a number on him and he wouldn’t have been hired.” Huh. So our big question today — if Donald Trump is innocent, why is he doing everything he can to take down the investigation?

Trump is trying to confuse enough people, or create just enough doubt to keep himself in office. It is a strategy that would have had zero chance of success in another era, but Trump has Fox News on his side, and they are endlessly pumping out propaganda to 2-3 million diehard Trump supporters. The Trump strategy is about creating distraction, confusion, and doubt. It is the same approach that he used during the 2016 election. The Mueller investigation has replaced Hillary Clinton, but the tactics are the same.

The worst that can happen to Trump is that the American people don’t fall for the distractions, stay focused on the facts, and never stop demanding the truth.

The Trump strategy is simple. It is up to the voters to make sure that he doesn’t get away with it.
