End of the Road for Donald Trump
His anxiety is written all over his face. Sorry Trump, Bill Barr wont be around to help you. He will of course keep you company at the place where you will spend the last part of your life
Stephen Miller read out a paragraph in the US Constitution (Trump cant read). “The President is the Head of every Institutions in USA. He has the power to remove or appoint the Heads of any Institution. Before he finished the sentence Trump got up and walked away to the rest room where he looked at the mirror, content with himself and with his smile, adjusted his orangutan hair and returned after 5 minutes and instructed Stephen Miller, “that will be all Stephen you can leave now”. “Sir there are some more here Sir, you should hear it”. No, thats enough, you can go. This happened on the Thursday 25th May 2017.
He convinced himself as omnipotent with absolute power to fire and hire anybody. The first victim was James Comey. The World has seen rampant behaviour for nearly four years. The installation of him as the President was done by Vladimir Putin with Putin’s money. Putin was not doing a favour to Trump but he had own agenda to neutralise the US Military that he has done. What was unexpected nor planned was the Covid -19. His omnipotent postion has put him deep mud; he couldn’t wriggle out. Popularity has been on the slippery slope; he sense losing the Presidency and possibly several hundreds cases of Civil and Criminal nature are waiting in the wing to pounce. He will no longer be protected by the Presidentail immunity. Probably Joe Biden may have to hire Dog the Bounty Hunter to remove Trump physically from the White House.
The presidency of Donald John Trump is collapsing. Unwilling or unable to confront the deadly realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has claimed more than 138,000 American lives, the president’s job-approval ratings have plummeted. The ravages of the virus, in turn, have triggered a deep economic slump, pushing unemployment rates to levels not seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s. There is a growing perception that our 45th commander in chief, never known for his intellectual acuity or moral rectitude, is unfit to lead the nation in this moment of extreme crisis.
Even the Supreme Court, with two of his own appointees on the bench, has seemingly turned against him. On the last day of its just-completed 2019-2020 term, the court released a pair of landmark decisions on presidential power, rejecting Trump’s desperate attempt to quash subpoenas issued by Congress and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance for his tax returns and personal financial records. Writing for a 7-2 majority in both cases, Chief Justice John Roberts rebuffed Trump’s claims of sweeping presidential immunity and reaffirmed the bedrock principle that no one—including the president—is above the law.
According to many polls, if the election were held today, Trump would lose in a classic landslide. If the pundits are correct, the entire Republican Party could be dragged down with him.
Trump’s abiding corruption and incompetence have prompted urgent calls for his resignation by newspaper editorial boards, columnists and activists like Ralph Nader. Even before his stunning setbacks in the Supreme Court, there was considerable and widespread speculation that rather than face humiliation in November, Trump will step down in the fashion of Richard Nixon, or announce à la Lyndon Johnson that he won’t seek reelection after all.
As the veteran commentator Robert Kuttner mused in a recent article in the American Prospect:
“If Trump senses a blowout defeat well beyond the usual Republican margin of theft, [he] may decide that it’s more dignified to retire undefeated. He can claim that the election was rigged, that he would have won, blah blah blah, and he can have the satisfaction of agitating his base as president-in-exile with no responsibility whatever for the consequences.”
Regrettably, I have to demur. Trump will never voluntarily stand aside. Trump will lie, cheat and steal to retain the presidency by any means necessary, and he’ll do so for one simple reason—once he is out of office, he could be prosecuted for a trove of federal and state felonies, and, if convicted, as I indicated earlier, sent to prison.
If he loses the election, Trump could be targeted by a new Democratic attorney general determined to hold him accountable for a laundry list of possible federal offenses, including:
Obstruction of justicein connection with the investigation conducted by former special counsel Robert Mueller into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Obstruction of Congress,extortion and bribery in connection with his efforts to pressure Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to dig up political dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden in exchange for the release of U.S. military aid previously approved by Congress.
Income tax and financial fraudfor underreporting the revenue earned from his real-estate ventures, and misrepresenting the value of his assets, as alleged by the New York Times in a lengthy 2018 exposé.
Violation of campaign finance lawsfor conspiring with his former lawyer Michael Cohen to pay hush money to pornographic film star Stephanie Clifford, aka “Stormy Daniels,” and former Playboy model Karen McDougal in the run-up to the 2016 election. In 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to the Daniels and McDougal payoffs. The complaint lodged against Cohen treated Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator, referring to him as “Individual 1” in keeping with Justice Department practices, and alleging that he directed Cohen to make the money transfers.
