Trump’s press secretary, Sarah Sanders, set the vituperative tone of a fight ag

”Democrats have embarked on a fishing expedition because they are terrified that thei
r two year false narrative of ‘Russia collusion’ is crumbling,” Sanders said in a statement on Monday night. “The D
emocrats are not after the truth, they are after the President.”Sanders and everyone else inside the White House are about to end
ure the bitter, full-on misery of a multi-front oversight campaign. That means a blizzard of subpoenas, officials be
ing hauled up to Capitol Hill to testify under penalty of perjury and a mountain of legal bills.
But Trump has lived in the eye of such storms for much of his adult life, and he comes to the fight with certain advantages.
His clash with House Democrats will give him the foil in the form of his Democratic tormentors that he’s lacked ever s
ince his 2016 campaign. This President is always most effective with an enemy to define himself against.
