Impeachment of Trump no longer impossible

on Sat May 20, 2017 2:17 pm
Impeachment of Trump no longer impossible

Some 10 days ago, U.S. president's staunchest critics might have called Trump a national disaster but essentially unimpeachable.

Censor.NET reports citing an op-ed by Lawrence Douglas for The Guardian.

Now it seems like just a matter of time before he is removed from office, the author believes.

The announcement that the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, has appointed Robert Mueller III, the former FBI director, to serve as special counsel overseeing the Russian probe only strengthens the spreading sense that Trump is finished.

What makes this appointment fatal to the president is not Mueller's well-earned reputation for doggedness. It is the fact that the president's own self-destructive behavior has altered the scope of the probe. No longer will the possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign be the focus.

Front and center will be whether the president has obstructed justice - first, by entreating Comey to "let go" of the Flynn investigation, and second, by firing Comey. Also at issue will be whether Trump's tweet - "James Comey better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" - represents an attempt to tamper with a witness in an ongoing investigation.

A White House with a presumption of regularity might be able to weather these allegations. A "regular" president might be able to convince the American people that Comey's contemporaneous memo misstated or mischaracterized the president's entreaty, which expressed a hope, not a command. Of course, even a regular president might not succeed.
Republicans should ask themselves how many nanoseconds they would have let pass before drawing up articles of impeachment had Barack Obama asked Comey to "let go" of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.

And now comes the news that in appointing Flynn his national security adviser, Trump disregarded not only the warnings of Obama and the acting attorney general, Sally Yates, but the very fact that Flynn was already under criminal investigation.

Erratic behavior, extravagant narcissism wedded to a lack of discipline, and a pattern of arguably impeachable offenses: we can only hope that Mueller's appointment sounds the death knell of this brief, dangerous experiment in presidential waywardness.
