Trump Watch May 10 2017

Day 111:

 

A long time ago Nixon tried to get out getting impeached by firing a Archibald Cox, a special prosecutor investigating him.  And because people still had some sense of duty to the country back then, it precipitated the resignations of a bunch of people.  Including the Attorney General, the Deputy Attorney General, and A General.

Last night Trump fired FBI director James Comey.  The reasons given were that he didn’t do a good job investigating Clinton’s emails.  If you think this passes the smell test, then you need to get your nose looked at.  Comey had already done what he could to throw a monkey wrench into Clinton’s campaign.  I think the real threat was that Comey was coming for Trump next.

History will sort this out, but what is for sure is that this has kicked off a hornets nest of calls for an independent investigation into Trump, his ties to Russia, his nepotism, his corruption, and in general has kicked off a shit storm.  Trump like Nixon seems to think he is more powerful than he is, and Jeff Sessions is probably going to go down with the ship as well for his part in recommending Comey be fired, even though he is supposed to recuse himself from anything to do with Russia.  One can only hope that like Nixon, Trump overestimates just how clever he is (he is not clever) and thinks he can bully his way out of this (he can not).

If the American people don’t rise up in the 2018 elections and replace just about everyone, then this country is doomed.  If they do however go to the polls and make some serious course corrections we still might get out of this without another economic or environmental disaster.
