Well, maybe it’s the start of something bigger. A lot of people sure seem to think so, that seems to be at least the direction things are moving (distance is harder to gauge), and it’s sure what I’d like to see happen.
It was bad enough a monster like George W. Bush didn’t get impeached. If Trump is allowed to finish his term, then can there ever be an impeachment?
So, who knows. Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, when he said he never arranged any meetings between Trump and ‘the Russians.’ The reason I’ve put that in quotes is because it is of interest just which Russians he was meeting with, and why. Was he looking for dirt on Hillary, or just looking to launder some Russian money with some more hotels. Would he have been conducting personal business in the middle of a presidential campaign? Sure. He’s still conducting personal business. It’s like he doesn’t care about being president, and perhaps never did. I’m not convinced he was even trying to win.
The immediate question, though, is just how much he will give up in return for an easier (or no) prison time. If he’s actually going to implicate Trump, as I have heard plenty of people crowing about, but I suspect that’s political wishful thinking.
On the other hand, the slow march is pleasing to watch, too, and may even be more satisfying in the end. I would love to see Kushner behind bars.
