Remove The President

NOTE:  I am not saying that Trump should go…this is nothing but an FYI of what is being said and why.  Please try not to attack me for these are not my thoughts just a regurgitation of what others are saying….

These days there is this back and forth about what the President knew and when…some think he is getting a raw deal while others think he dug his own grave…..and that debate will rage on until some new shiny object is dangled in front of their faces.

But for the sake of argument let’s say that the “bad guys” find a way to remove Trump from his Ivory Tower….what then?

Many think that he will resign to save losing…apparently he must win……

The decision to name the universally-respected former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel on the Russian election scandal is a defining moment in modern American history that sets off a chain reaction that probably leads to the ultimate resignation of President Trump.

On Feb. 15, I wrote an op-ed in The Hill titled, “Putingate is our Watergate.” It was true then. It is true now. The Putingate scandal will probably end the same way the Watergate scandal ended, with a presidential resignation followed by a pardon.

Even Trump’s co-author of the “Art of the Deal” does not see it ending well for Trump……..

The co-writer of President Trump’s bestselling book “The Art of the Deal” predicted Thursday that Trump will resign before he is consumed by one of the scandals rocking the White House.

In an interview with CNN, Tony Schwartz said that Trump is in “pure terror” that the scandals surrounding his administration could boil over to impeachment, and will likely walk away.

Will it solve all the problems in this country?  Some seem to talk that talk.

Well according to The American Conservative…..not much!

America is in crisis. It is a crisis of greater magnitude than any the country has faced in its history, with the exception of the Civil War. It is a crisis long in the making—and likely to be with us long into the future. It is a crisis so thoroughly rooted in the American polity that it’s difficult to see how it can be resolved in any kind of smooth or even peaceful way. Looking to the future from this particular point in time, just about every possible course of action appears certain to deepen the crisis.

What is it? Some believe it stems specifically from the election of Donald Trump, a man supremely unfit for the presidency, and will abate when he can be removed from office. These people are right about one thing: Trump is supremely unfit for his White House job. But that isn’t the central crisis; it is merely a symptom of it, though it seems increasingly to be reaching crisis proportions of its own.

With all the hearings these days the term “impeachment” has re-entered into the discourse…..but what do most people know about the process to impeach?

Let me help…….

Former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee exacerbated concerns that President Donald Trump may have tried to kill an investigation into his national security advisor, and in so doing committed a criminal offense — obstruction of justice. On the same day but across the Atlantic, the British election that demonstrated surprisingly weak public support for Prime Minster Theresa May served as a reminder of how different the tools are here, in the United States, for dealing with an unpopular or failing elected leader than they are in a parliamentary system.

We cannot call snap elections or votes of no confidence. A president is elected to a four-year term and is not subject to recall. In four years, the people weigh in again and say yes or no to a second term, after they have some perspective on his performance. To cut short a president’s term in office before it is finished is to contravene the will of the people as expressed in the election — the most fundamental act of democracy — and should be done in only the rarest and most exceptional of cases.

Now we have even more ammo for the “Dump Trump” movement……thanx to his son and some emails……

Do you think President Donald Trump will get impeached? These gamblers do. The Irish website Paddy Power says odds are for the bet, “Will Trump Be Impeached In His First Term?” are the highest it has ever been.

Spokesperson Lee Price told Fortune that odds shot up to 60 percent on Wednesday. Trump “had gone quiet over the last month, and we were starting to wonder if he might have ridden out the initial controversies – but he’s back with a bang today,” Lee said in an email.

The spokesman said hundreds of thousands of pounds were placed on impeachment. Odds of the process happening as soon as this year were at 33 percent.

The president may not be in as much trouble as some would like…..

  1. I am no expert on anything, let alone your politics. But looking at the man, I don’t see resignation in him. He looks like someone who will come back fighting, right or wrong.
    Regards, Pete.

    1. I can agree somewhat….I see a man that would resign to protect his image of never losing…..and Pence would pardon him as his first act as new prez……chuq

  2. Donald Trump has been under self-sedation since birth. It’s a Trump Thing! When he goes onto the world stage, he continues to act like an obnoxious fool—such as pushing the President of Montenegro at the NATO Summit. And each time, Donald Trump returns home, reporting his huge accomplishments in Europe.

    Currently, it appears that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron are approaching aTrump, using the Good Cop, Bad Cop strategy. Cigarette and blindfold? Remember that, at the end of the G-20 Summit, Mrs. Merkel said that the other attendees would try to work around Trump.

    If collusion or manipulation are the key elements behind the Trump-Russia Investigation, the November Election, for both President and Vice President, must be invalidated, and all nominations also invalidated. Yes, that would include Justice Gorsuch.

    Mere Impeachment or Resignation would only replace the Head, leaving the corpus—the rest of the Crime Family—in tact. Those insufficient measures would raise the question of whether Trump could Pardon those complicit (in the crime), or even himself. A complete invalidation would put such concerns to rest.

    1. I like the sound of that…but I do not see that ever happening….the Repubs would fight it and the Dems would roll-over……..chuq

  3. Obviously I represent one of the more “vocal”, in these parts, riding the Dump Trump bandwagon. I think what’s important is the “why” of it all. The “Dumpsters” seem to have reasons all over the place… from domestic policy differences, to international policy embarrassments, to behavioral issues, to hair color issues, to just plain lack of leadership issues. From the get-go my objections with him have been entirely on the man himself.. poor m oral character, poor leadership abilities in any venue (business or politics), huge behavioral and social behaviors, and grossly totally inexperienced for the role of president. Anyone one of us demonstrating this performance at our jobs would be fired. “High crimes and misdemeanors” is NOT defined… and allows Congress wide flexibility. The republicans of the day impeached Clinton for NOTHING relating to his ability or performance as president, or for any Constitutional violations.

    Your link to the “Will Trump Be Impeached?” article states
    “As of June 13, nearly 80 percent of Republicans approved of Trump according to a daily Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll.” as the reason that Trump would not be impeached. Well, if the GOP can hold on to its seats, likely correct.
    In the poll pissing match, the ABC/Washington Post Poll is showing 58% of voters disapprove on how Trump is handling his job… 36% approve.
    In just the counties that flipped in the last election from Obama to Trump… 51% disapprove and 44% approve.
    My point.. it’s less about how many Republicans love the guy but more about the Republicans keeping the majority to deter impeachment.

    Pete is correct.. Trump will never resign.
    I would encourage the Dems to focus on the mid term elections.. and after that, don’t let Trump win in 2020.

    1. Dems have nothing to offer….so how can they possibly defeat Trump? The more I look at this stuff….it is Party above country…..and that does not bode well for any of us….chuq

    2. I apologize this reply went to my SPAM folder…..he will be re-elected because of the reality show mentality of the American voter…he is no politician, he is no statesman what he is is an entertainer and that will make the difference….chuq

  4. Chuq, I agree that the odds of Invalidation–that other “I” word–are slim; but, the other side of it is: How much water does this Ship of Fools take on, before the crew abandons ship? At some point, you stop holding the grenades, and toss ’em!
