TRUMP: IT’S A PARTISAN WITCH HUNT!
DRIP! DRIP! DRIP! DRIP! WATERGATE ANYONE?
All of this “stuff” is just getting diceier and diceier with every passing day. Even a week ago I would have bet my entire 401(k) on the premise that Trump would NOT be impeached. Now, I’m not so sure. One thing though, it will have to be a recorded conversation or some other direct and incontrovertible proof that Trump himself actually promised Putin to remove sanctions, agreed to allow Russian to absorb the Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia and France as a formation of a new country to be called “Greater Russia” or a video of Vlad fornicating Trump in the ass in some Moscow hotel room. All right, all right. The last is just too far out to imagine. (Unless, of course, we are talking of an Alternate Set of Facts universe where this shtupping actually did take place.) But absent such hard core evidence, Republicans will remain overjoyed that they can gleefully go about implementing their “ultimate destruction of America at all costs” plan while braying that they are simply protecting America’s working and middle classes.
You know what government agency is not going fare well in all of this? The FBI. In fact, it was after FBI Director Comey briefed the Senate Intelligence Committee last week in a closed door, secret, session that I began to think that hell, yes, maybe impeachment is in the offing. Why? Well typically after such secret meetings, Senators emerge and adopt an attitude of “nothing much to see here,” drop hints about what was said and generally go around reassuring the American public that all is well. This time? The absolute, impenetrable, wall of silence when they emerged from the briefing was telling. It means that they learned much, much more than they had anticipated. And it was bad news. Even now, a week later, Adam Schiff (D-CA) is demanding that the FBI give the Intelligence Committee all of the info they have collected thus far from the FBI’s investigations. This is not a good sign. (Well, yes it is for those of us who detest Trump.)
It was this revelation that sealed Nixon’s fate. Now think about Trump’s call to Putin following his election. It’s been revealed that Trump (presumably an aide) turned off the recording system. Why? What was it that Trump said to Putin (or vice versa) that Trump did not want anyone to know about? Sure, under normal circumstances one would think nothing of it. But, with all the Russian contacts stuff floating around, the resignation of Michael Flynn, Manafort’s removal from the Trump Campaign, Jeff Session’s recusal, and the on again off again rumors that Trump associate Carter Page and others also met with the Russian ambassador, the question still is "What the fuck is going on?" By the way, you must see CNN’s Anderson Cooper’s interview with Carter Page last night. It’s priceless! And supremely cringe worthy.
But hey, don’t get me wrong. I’m not on some “Trump Witch Hunt” like Republicans have been on Hillary since the last ice age retreated from Europe. No, no. I’m not. I will admit that my heart would sing “God Bless America” if Trump were forced from office before his four years of revenge against liberals is over. But for the moment, I’m enjoying the mess, chaos and anarchy that is the Trump Administration.
Have A Great Day! And hang in there!
