Ornstein: Trump’s Getting Secret Info from Mark Levin in Transmissions Through His Fillings

‘It seems obvious to me that beyond the sort of rants based on a cable or a talk radio host rant, that this is also designed to shore up Trump support in a tribal way among Republicans’

EXCERPT:

ORNSTEIN: “So, I have a couple of reactions, Ali. One is the president has access to information. It sounds like it's coming in secret transmissions from Mark Levin through the fillings in his teeth. But beyond that I would say the President is calling for an investigation. It’s time for an independent investigation with an independent prosecutor to look into all of this. It seems obvious to me that beyond the sort of rants based on a cable or a talk radio host rants, that this is also designed to shore up Trump support in a tribal way among Republicans, core Republicans, so that the Republicans in Congress who are his last line of defense, as the news tightens and all of this news about Russia, will stay in line because they’re fearful that the base will turn on them and that Trump will get Breitbart and talk radio and Sean Hannity to go after those apostates. So there's a method to this madness along with the madness.”
