Republicans plotting to oppose Trump in 2020 waiting for Mueller and June before pulling trigger

Renegade Republicans intent on upending President Trump in 2020 are keeping their powder dry, waiting to see if legal and political controversies drive him from office first.

Political operatives and potential candidates that inhabit the loose-knit community of Republicans who oppose Trump’s re-election are eyeing June as the approximate moment for deciding on a primary challenge or independent bid. It’s a strategic delay. Some Republicans think the weight of multiple investigations could motivate the president to exit the White House after one term — especially if special counsel Robert Mueller issues a politically damaging report.

"The scenario I think we could be heading toward is Trump hitting a Mueller-induced problem where there would suddenly be several people looking at running because of the odds increasing that he won’t run again," said Rob Stutzman, a veteran GOP consultant in Sacramento, Calif., who has had discussions with like-minded Republicans about how Trump 2020 might be derailed.

So the question to ask themselves as well as the rest of us, would Trump get the same support whether he ran as a Republican Party candidate or some other new party?

I think there is much interest out there in finding or creating "renegade Republicans".

Oh, yeah.  Wanna be a new media darling?  It's simple.  Come out against Trump and try to rally up a movement to nominate someone else in 2020.

Not happening, but you could be the darling of the month.
