It is not easy to watch this utter collapse of a president of the United States. There is no joy in watching this process, nor should there be regardless of strong partisan feelings we may have, one way or the other, about Donald Trump. It is not about him anymore, it is not about party loyalty, it is about salvaging the executive branch of the government and salvaging our adherence to the law. This is about country. This is about the Constitution and reaffirming that the rule of law is paramount and no one, especially the president of the United States, is above the law.
At 7: 26 A.M. this morning Trump tweeted: “James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” Does this threat imply that, like Ricard Nixon, the President is secretly taping conversations he has with others? Chilling! Chris Kern asked: “Why would you write a tweet that threatens the FBI director you just fired? I guess I should stop being surprised in any way at what goes on -- this is the same WH that fired the FBI director and then later met with the Russian ambassador and Foreign Minister, closed to the press except for the Russian state photographer.”
