DC TIME


Shades of OJ

A weekend is not the time to post a blog. : However so much is happening in DC that I would be remiss not to post any comment.

Perhaps more important than the GOP Health Care Reform failure is that the Nixon; sorry Trump saga is growing in similarities. At this point there are signs that the results may also be similar.

There is developing evidence of a cover up. There is increasing exposure of who was at that “not important meeting between Donald Jr. and that “Russian Lawyer not connected with the government” who “wanted to talk about adoptions” not give info on Hillary. Now we learn that there were others who had connections with the old KGB also at the meeting.

The Donald has claimed that he only recently learned about that meeting, yet the week of the meeting he proclaimed that the next week he would have a bombshell about Clinton.

He has constantly denied any personal financial interest in Russia although there are pictures of him with Russian entrepreneurs

He has threaten to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and an apparent warning to special counsel Robert Mueller; Sessions for not telling him long before there was any indication of a Comey precipitated investigation into Russian .interference in the election that he would recluse himself from participating.

Mueller if he would expand his commission’s inquiry to include an investigation of Trump family income. That could be a possibility related to Russian interests. It could be likely since Mueller is already expanded to Paul Manafort’s financial arrangements with the Russians and even to a charge of money laundering.
“If Trump were to fire Mueller, he would have to order Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to fire him. If Rosenstein refuses, as he surely would, Trump would have to fire Rosenstein and replace him with someone who would then fire Mueller. This would lead to the firing of the deputy attorney general and the special counsel at a time when Trump is also attacking his attorney general, who could be fired or resign in protest”.(Washington Post)

Today Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned from an impossible role.

Somehow there are indications that Trump may feel that he is not bound by the law or the Constitution.

  1. The big difference between the OJ debacle is that Trump can do great damage to our country, which he already is; and OJ was just hurting himself. I used to be a Republican, but people like Trump and back in the day, Nixon, drove me become Unaffiliated and finally a Democrat. Trump is starting to make Nixon look good and the nickname, "Tricky Dick" may now become "Tricky Trump".
