Donald Trump has now declared that he is above the law, and that he can do what he wants with his executive authority.
Trump said in a tweet that he can end the Robert Mueller Investigation into Russian Collusion and Obstruction of Justice, and other charges whenever he wants to.
He has said that he can fire Mueller and anyone else when he decides to do so.
He has stated that he can reject a subpoena to testify from the Special Counsel, and refuse to cooperate.
And he has said he can pardon himself, although since he claims he has done nothing wrong, he does not plan to do so.
This is a President totally out of control, and giving us a warning of future intentions.
If the Republican Party sits by and does nothing to move toward impeachment and conviction, it will be part of a history of destroying the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rule of law.
The time to take action is now, before it is too late, and we have lost our Republic, so there is no justification for any further delay in taking action!
It is well known that Donald Trump is the “Liar in Chief”, and is the most massive liar ever to occupy the Oval Office.
This lying could, ultimately, do him in, as if and when he is called upon by voluntary means or subpoena to appear before Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Russian collusion and obstruction of justice inquiry, Donald Trump would be under oath, and if he lied before the grand jury, as Bill Clinton did in 1998 before Ken Starr, he could, like Bill Clinton, face impeachment charges.
Trump does not have ability to tell the truth, and keep his story straight, but inconsistency in a legal proceeding would put him in jeopardy.
With evidence mounting, and with Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Roger Stone and others already in legal jeopardy, the future of Donald Trump is gloomy, and has helped to make his first nine months as President a total disaster with no major legislation, and only the Supreme Court appointment of Neil Gorsuch, with a changed filibuster rule, as something he can claim has been accomplished.
Donald Trump is a man in great danger, and the likelihood of succession by Vice President Mike Pence is growing.
