I think we definitely have…
Those sins of omissions - no intel on Russian discussions, his quick turn-around trip to rejoin Putin are so very alarming. WTF. It is an awful lot of power centered in one pair of tiny hands.
The staggering amount of real evidence, revealed piece by piece to our horror is debilitating. And with no knowledge or sense for us that there maybe some way to stop him, aside from a 2020 election, then this has been beyond exasperating. God help us all.
I am ever hopeful that Mueller is lightyears ahead with his gathered -tax records, FBI intel, as well as other countries’ intel who watch Putin-led interference campaigns. Hell, Hillary called it from the debate podium…saying ‘you are Russia’s puppet’
Mueller has to knit together ALL of it…he is drawing the noose around T’s finances with calling for his accountant…and that gets creepy close I believe to where fraud, conspiracy to defraud and treason has taken place.
-Cohen’s probable indictment and potential flipping.
-We have Avenatti coming at him with Stormy Daniel’s and others, which demonstrates campaign finance violations.
-We have CREW - Richard Painter, and Lawrence Tribe and many others coming at him with emoluments violations.
-midterms…rise in Blue recently
But we have these obstacles
-T’s loyal base who could care less about anything -
Russian (it is elite’s concerns) .They are low information voters, gun owners, pro-lifers, neo-nazis, anti-immigrant etc
-Recalcitrant R Congress who are powering through
And voting with him, minus the ones who are leaving
They want conservatives filling the Supreme Court and judgeships. They do remark off the record that T is a loose cannon, but not too many are coming at him, like Will Hurd R
-Fox news and conservative media who hate libs,press and lie and conspire, and a dismissive and gullible audience.
-Russia social media manipulators, hackers, NATO destroyers, pro-nationalism, anti-migrants.
We have to be thankful for the press and their relentless uncovering of these truths. We need to have faith that our institutions are strong and divided into 3 separate power centers that check the other.
T still has big disapproval ratings…his thin-skinned tweets to the legal jeopardy he and his family may be in I hope is getting to him.
I too fear that he will give away the keys to the kingdom, promote WWW III -secure he and his family (’‘your favorite President’-Lol) and change the balance of power forever. Before he can be stopped.
So…hold on, it is still a hugely bumpy ride out there.
But history will paint him as the worst US president ever…so there will be poetic justice somewhere. :--
