Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Michael Smerconish: Maybe Trump's Inviting Impeachment”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

CNN’s Michael Smerconish opened today by asking if President Donald Trump “actually want[s] to be impeached.”

This week in Washington was dominated by a remarkable back-and-forth between the president and Speaker Nancy Pelosi. And while it looks “petulant” to Smerconish, he said there may be more going on.

He brought up the idea that Pelosi was deliberately pushing Trump’s buttons and that Trump “seemed to be inviting the initiation of impeachment proceedings” a la “Go ahead, make my day.”

“Perhaps the president thinks that his opponents will rally around an expensive and time-consuming process only to have him emerge at the end unscathed and playing the victim,” Smerconish said.
