Does this have anything to do with Trump's latest acquiescence?

Penn came to the Oval Office for more than an hour last Monday, three people familiar with the meeting said, and brought polling data and impeachment advice for the president. Penn reassured Trump that he wouldn't be removed from office, according to people familiar with the meeting, and encouraged him to travel the country like Clinton did when he was fighting impeachment over 20 years ago, officials said.

Vice President Pence and counselor Kellyanne Conway were also present for the meeting, where Diet Cokes were served. Penn was escorted by Andrew Stein, a longtime Trump friend from New York who recently penned a Wall Street Journal op-ed calling for Nikki Haley to replace Pence on the ticket.

Penn recommended that Trump stay focused on the substance' of the allegations surrounding trading access and aid for political favors from Ukraine, according to Stein, and not respond to everything.'

Headline link's article has been updated. Here's another source:

Trump lashes out at 'D.C. Wolves' after McGahn ruling, claims he would 'love' for staff to testify
www.nbcnews.com

In that article, Pres trump notes he actually does not want them to testify...

..."I am fighting for future Presidents and the Office of the President. Other than that, I would actually like people to testify."...

I guess Pres Trump is fighting to create a dictatorship out of the Office of the President.

I am fighting for future Presidents and the Office of the President.

Nixon said the same thing. But he didn't have a Russian disinformation campaign and TV propaganda arm working for him.

Perhaps go back and read your oath of office and do what it commands you to do?
