Only 25 days into the Trump Presidency, and already a scandal, and it is looking as if Donald Trump will be gone before the 199 days of James A. Garfield, who was assassinated in 1881.
That would mean by August 7 that Trump will have left the White House.
It is six days until February 20, one month in office, the length of time of William Henry Harrison in the Presidency, before he died of pneumonia in 1841.
The Michael Flynn resignation as National Security Adviser puts Trump on the spot, as his “bromance” with Russian President Vladimir Putin, along with that of Flynn, endangers the national security interests of the United States.
Trump could be considered a traitor to the United States by many, and it seems very likely a move toward impeachment is likely in the short run.
It is also interesting that Vice President Mike Pence seems to have been the one to assert himself, and help to force Flynn out, so that is also a sign that Pence may be moving toward a possible challenge to his boss, which can be promoted by the 25th Amendment, Section 4, which I wrote about last month (January 22) on History News Network, with the article found on the right side of my blog.
One can now expect Mike Pence to be our 46th President of the United States before 2017 is over!
Apparently, The Donald’s Twitter account must be not working. Not a word on this whole mess. A little Birdy tells me that this may be the beginning of the end. Tweet. Tweet!
Paul, it IS the beginning of the end! No question, and if it is not, then our experiment in self government is over!
70’s – Watergate
Now – Russiagate
New York Times report: Trump’s aides were in constant contact with top Russian intel during the campaign.
