Trump is Deep into Watergate Territory Now - didn't take long


Recommended Posts

Fallout continues to grow over President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey last week. The firing came just days after Comey requested more resources to probe Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

 

 

Senate Democrats are now threatening to refuse to vote on a new FBI director unless a special prosecutor is named to investigate possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Meanwhile, pressure is growing on the administration to reveal whether Trump has been secretly recording conversations at the White House.

 

 

On Friday, Trump tweeted, "James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" Trump’s possible recording of White House conversations has led many comparisons between Trump and former President Richard Nixon, who resigned on August 8, 1974—three days after the release of an audio recording of Nixon discussing the Watergate break-in.

 

 

Nixon had fought off congressional subpoenas to release the tape, but eventually the Supreme Court forced him to hand it over. It later became known as the smoking gun tape. We speak to Elizabeth Holtzman, former U.S. congressmember from New York who served on the House Judiciary Committee that voted to impeach Richard Nixon.

First the Comey firing while under investigation. Second, the sharing of classified material in a White House meeting with Russians in which the Russian press was present but the American press not allowed. The third is coming down the pike and Trumpy is the last one who knows what it will be.

 

When enough Congressional Republicans finally figure out that Trump is more of a liability to them, than an asset, proceedings will begin.

Watch for all the corrupt con rats to start jumping the Trump ship - they have all been waiting for the right time to run away, and start shouting about their deep patriotism and commitment to the rule of law.

HA!! It's kinda tough to be in "Watergate" territory, when there have been NO laws broken by the POTUS, NO evidence of REAL wrong doing, and IN FACT, all public statement indicating that there HAS been NO evidence against Trump...

 

I think it's ALL about SOUR GRAPES fro McCain... and probably a touch of senility... HE should have LOST in the last election, and essentially CHEATED to win. HE is one RINO that NEEDS to GO !!

Trump wastes no time in going from zero to Nixonian corruption.

They're afraid they will piss off their constituents who inexplicably still support Trump. I doubt they are capable of "doing the right thing."

Remember these damn fools aka Trump and his political cronies cannot keep their stories straight which has garnered a lot of attention.

 

Trump contradicts people working for him .......

 

As I have said before when testifying under oath begins perjury will be among some of the indictments because too many cannot remember what they have said.

 

Let's not pretend meaning Trump and his people have their asses in a jam.

 

Ego mania is getting in the way of law enforcement, practical and pragmatic government !

 

Why did republicans choose to support a damn fool like Trump? Then again there were no respectable choices!

 

It is urgent for Americans to think and speak clearly about President Trump’s inability to do either. This seems to be not a mere disinclination but a disability. It is not merely the result of intellectual sloth but of an untrained mind bereft of information and married to stratospheric self-confidence.

 

Americans have placed vast military power at the discretion of this mind, a presidential discretion that is largely immune to restraint by the Madisonian system of institutional checks and balances.

 

So, it is up to the public to quarantine this presidency by insistently communicating to its elected representatives a steady, rational fear of this man whose combination of impulsivity and credulity render him uniquely unfit to take the nation into a military conflict.

Trump Was Bailed Out of Bankruptcy by Russian Crime Bosses

The facts read like a B-grade spy novel.

Watch his televised joint statement with Colombia today - he is subdued and obediently reading boilerplate niceties about partnership straight from the script given to him. None of his usual boasting and bravado. This can mean only one thing - HE'S SCARED.

 

First question from reporter - what about this special prosecutor. Trump: Wah wah I'm being picked on it's all fake wah wah.

 

SOS.
