I’ve previously written about the similarities between Richard Nixon and Donald Trump. They shared a weak temperament, egos which were larger than life, and a belief that they were above the law. There were other traits they shared, but they were different in two distinct ways; Nixon was far more intelligent, and he had excellent diplomatic skills.
Today a story in the Washington Post revealed that Trump recorded virtually every phone call in his business dealings. He likely maintains that same practice in the White House. Nixon’s own recordings were vital to removing him from office.
“Talking on the phone with Donald was a public experience,” said O’Donnell, author of a book about his former boss, “Trumped: The Inside Story of the Real Donald Trump.” “You never knew who else was listening.”
Today Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked if the White House maintained a ‘taping system.’
“The president has nothing further to add on that,” Spicer said three times. He refused to say whether the White House still has an active taping system.
If they exist, these tapes can be subpoenaed.
Maybe it’s just me, but for the first time since November 8th, 2016, I feel somewhat excited. Is Trump going down; and soon? Things began to unravel for Nixon when he fired special prosecutor Archibald Cox. Will the firing of James Comey for no other reason than the fact that he was getting closer to the truth about Trump’s Russian connections become the catalyst which removes his large derriere from the White House?
Only a single question remains; how long will hypocrites such as Lyin Ryan, and traitor McConnell continue to stand behind their “Criminal-in-Chief?” If he is prosecuted, every Republican who supported their illegitimate president will be in great jeopardy of losing their lives of privilege and luxury.
There exists thousands of pages of circumstantial evidence. A single factual, undeniable piece of evidence will end America’s nightmare.
We can only hope and pray.
