Dark days loom ahead for President Trump. There is the investigation by Robert Mueller. And there are the upcoming midterm elections.
It looks as though Trump is right when he insists there was no collusion with the Russians. But that hasn’t stopped Mueller. Long interviews with Former FBI Director James Comey and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions indicate that the Special Counsel is now going after Trump for obstruction of justice. Comey has already testified before Congress that Trump told him to go easy on former national security adviser Michael Flynn and then fired him when he refused.
Trump has agreed to be interviewed by Mueller. Not a good idea! That’s akin to the defendant in a criminal trial taking the stand in his own defense. There is no telling what will come out of Trump’s uncontrollable mouth.
Even if Mueller’s obstruction of justice investigation fizzles out, there are those upcoming midterm elections. If the Democrats regain control of the House, the first course of business in the lower chamber will be the impeachment of Trump for obstruction of justice. And since it takes only a simple majority of the members present to impeach, there is no doubt that the Democrats will succeed.
Then it’s on to the Senate for the impeachment trial. It is somewhat doubtful that the Democrats will regain control of the Senate, but even if they do, Trump will not be convicted because that requires a two-thirds majority of the members present. The Democrats will not be able to find enough Republican senators to join them in their lust to convict the president.
Bill Clinton survived impeachment for history’s most famous blow job. But Trump is not facing a Monica Lewinsky kind of impeachment case. Obstruction of Justice is far more serious.
Mueller’s investigation could destroy the Trump presidency. Even if not convicted, impeachment by the House will in effect destroy it.
Destruction of the presidency will bode ill for the nation. All Americans should pray this will not happen.
