|Michael Flynn leading the "Lock her up!" chant at the Republican convention|
Every day I watch the further unraveling of the Trump presidency.
I remember clearly when the Nixon presidency unraveled.
I voted for Nixon. Twice I voted for him. That was a time in my life when I was a conservative Republican who believed in fiscal responsibility and conservative values.
I believed Nixon that he didn't know about the "plumbers" that broke into the Democratic headquarters.
The year was 1974 and I was summer vacationing in Provincetown, Massachusetts. That was 43 years ago.
When Nixon was found to be lying (because he secretly tape recorded White House conversations) and was forced to resign rather than face impeachment and prison, I couldn't believe it. I was shocked.
Never again in my lifetime did I think I would witness a president who resigned from office in disgrace.
Well folks, that time has come again.
Donald Trump hasn't even finished one hundred days in office and already his presidency is meshed in numerous scandals. But the worst scandal is slowly coming out. And that scandal is that he and his campaign has colluded with Russia to affect the presidential election. Of that I have no doubt.
Yesterday, the odious General Flynn has requested immunity because he has "a story to tell." I bet he does. General Flynn, who infamously led the chant at the Republican Convention to lock up Hillary Clinton, now fears jail for himself. He should fear jail. He belongs in jail because I believe he worked for Russia. Of that I have no doubt.
So what do I expect to happen? I think we will be witnessing history again. Trump will resign. Pence will resign because he knew Flynn was lying. I think the election will be declared null and void. I think a new election will be held. History will be made.
This story is long from over. Of course the die hard Trump supporters, the ones who would support him even if he shoots someone on Fifth Avenue, will be outraged. So what? Who cares? I don't. I've had it with the diehard Trump poorly educated supporters. They will never be satisfied.
The United States has to regain respect in the world and it's never going to happen as long as Donald Trump and his incompetent minions are in power.
