Here’s Trump Allies’ Plan To Meddle In The 2020 Democratic Primary

It’s not just the Vichy Democrats we need to worry about.
WASHINGTON(Buzzfeed) — The pair of outside groups tied closely to President Donald Trump has retained the top Republican opposition group in an effort to smother Democrats seeking to challenge him — and perhaps even help pick his 2020 challenger.
The early move is part of Trump and his allies’ plan to dominate the Democratic presidential primary and push to have the nominating contest play out on their terms, especially since Trump himself has been uncharacteristically quiet in the new year about top Democratic White House hopefuls, preoccupied with the partial government shutdown and his push for a border wall.
America First Policies and its affiliated super PAC have made significant investments in the opposition group America Rising, funding their efforts to dig into the top Democratic contenders — along with some second-tier candidates — and prep opposition research books on all of them, according to five sources involved or familiar with the plans.
Those close to Trump say the work from America Rising will be used against Democrats in the primary to hammer candidates they think will be most challenging for Trump to beat, weakening the overall field and the eventual Democratic nominee.

that the DNC is gonna slice and dice and fix and rig and manipulate the Democratic primary its own self, thankewverymuch. As is usual. Should be entertaining as fork. Heh, I suspect that Trump’s people AND the DNC will be gunning for progressives, they both have the same objective. IMO and all that.
