FLS Blogger– This raises an interesting question, even if Trump seems to fit Mark Twain’s famous quip, “The rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated.” That is this: with the blizzard of corruption, bone-headed comments on social media, an exodus of advisors from his shop, what is it going to take to bring this walking nightmare to an end?,
What would that look like?. I predict it’s going to come, but the tantalizing question is: how–when?
After today’s convictions of Manafort and Cohen, Bret Stephens, a conservative columnist for the New York Times, is calling for Donald Trump’s impeachment. Stephens says, via Twitter, that Trump is guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
If Trump’s lost a self-described conservative who’s “skeptical” of impeachment, like Stephens, you know the convictions of Manafort and Cohen are the real deal.
Republican silence after these verdicts is proof enough of their complicity. It’s likely that many conservatives, like Stephens, are going to switch here at the end and declare themselves defenders of our democracy now. Ha! Some Republicans will try to revise their history defending this White House, because of the mid-term elections.
Never forget Republicans were and are complicit in enabling Donald Trump.
