Al Capone was busted on not paying taxes. What they bust you for is never as glamorous as what you actually did.
Richard Nixon was set to be impeached for obstruction of justice, until he preemptively resigned.
And whether he likes it or not, Donald Trump will, at some point, be removed from the office as President of the United States. Like Nixon before him, he will also go down for obstruction of Justice.
How do we know this? Because tomorrow, with the world watching, fired FBI Director, James Comey, will say that Trump asked him to “let go” part of the Russia investigation. That ladies and gentlemen, is obstruction of justice.
Former FBI Director James Comey will say Thursday that President Donald Trump asked him about the former national security adviser Michael Flynn and to “see your way clear to letting this go,” according to a copy of his opening remarks posted online.
“He then said, ‘I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go,'” Comey said in remarks posted on the website of the Senate intelligence committee. “I replied only that ‘he is a good guy.’ (In fact, I had a positive experience dealing with Mike Flynn when he was a colleague as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency at the beginning of my term at FBI.) I did not say I would ‘let this go.'”
Comey is scheduled to give his testimony before the Senate committee Thursday.
Comey, in his opening statement, said Trump told him “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty” during their first dinner in January. Comey said in the statement “I didn’t move, speak or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed.” Comey said he told Trump “you will always get honesty from me.” He said the President responded, “that’s what I want. Honest loyalty.” – CNN
Now, will any Republican grow a spine and actually start working on the articles of impeachment? Let’s wait and see.
