It doesn’t matter if Robert Mueller’s investigation doesn’t have Donald Trump’s name at the top of the indictments. In the same way that Richard Nixon was named as an “unindicted co-conspirator,” the president’s name will be implicit in the accusations against individuals involved in the 2016 campaign maneuvers to support Trump, by removing any mention of Russia at the GOP national convention, in the indictments of Flynn, Cohen, Manafort, Papadopoulos and 13 Russian nationals. The only reason these individuals are or were involved in any investigation has to do with the election of Donald Trump.
But let us suppose that nobody can find this president guilty of any complicity in the shenanigans that are sending his collaborators to prison and have discredited so many supporters. Donald Trump’s public statements, responses to reporter’s questions, his own words at the numerous rallies he organizes when he feels cornered can be listed as reasons to disqualify him from the presidency. His support of Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, the criminal Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman, and the White Supremacists disqualify him from serving in any official position in this country. It doesn’t matter if there is no picture of Donald Trump giving money to Stormy Daniels in order to buy her silence, because we know he ordered his lawyer to do it. It doesn’t matter if he denies he was doing business with Russia from the Oval Office, because Michael Cohen said he asked him about the progress of negotiations and that means he was breaking the law. He has said that he could shoot someone in the middle of the street and nothing would happen to him, but he is wrong when he publicly threatens to kill those who oppose him as he pretended to ponder doing that at a rally. We know now that he knew about the fact that the Russians had given wiki-leaks Hillary Clinton’s emails. We know that he met with Vladimir Putin without any other American official present and then confiscated the notes of the interpreter. Against the advise of experienced diplomats, he went to meet Kim Jong Un to ask him to give up his atomic armaments. He failed. He believes Mohamed Salman just because he said he didn’t do anything.
He took this country out of international agreements that took decades to structure like the Paris climate accords. That alone disqualifies him, because he is willing to sacrifice our future by doing irreparable damage to the environment. More public evidence of his misguided policies is what he has done regarding immigration. He is now threatening a constitutional crisis by vetoing a vote in Congress to undo his Executive Order to grab money from the State Department to build a wall that nobody wants. His attacks on John McCain, a genuine American hero, betray a total lack of class. His hatful words betray the state of mind of this president, who needs to go to build his tiny library. What really matters now is that we deny him a platform and vote him out of office–we fire him.
