First of all, let me make it very clear: I will be very happy if Donald Trump is impeached, even if he pulls a Nixon and resigns to avoid impeachment. Forced from office is forced from office and it should happen to far more presidents. It’s happened a grand total of once in American history and, just judging from the presidents I’ve known in my lifetime, it should probably be the fate of about 2 out of 3.
Sure, we’ll have to deal with Pence, who thinks prayer is a viable alternative to health insurance, but it’s the principal that’s important. There has to be a level of quality below which a president is not allowed to sink. Democrats failed to impeach George W. Bush and now look what we’ve got.
I’d also like to make it clear that this has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. She is still garbage and no matter what dirty tricks Trump may have employed to beat her, they could be no worse than what she did to secure the nomination.
One odd, and shocking, observation is that as stupid as Donald Trump is, his son might be even stupider.
Now, I don’t know exactly what kind of legal trouble he’s in. If it turns out he never did get any usable dirt on Clinton from Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lady lawyer who he met, and that’s likely since Veselnitskaya says she talked to him about a (Russian) bill to ban Americans from adopting Russian children, and sanctions, then he’s in the same position as a drug dealer who gets busted and it turns out the stuff he was peddling was oregano. His customers will be pissed off, but he’s not going to jail.
Nonetheless, it should be enough to get him on the witness stand, or at least in front of a congressional hearing, and somebody as dumb as he is is almost bound to screw up under the scrutiny. Should be fun.
