On my first thought, I decided that this was a rather straightforward idea: if you have nothing to fear why go through all the trouble to make yourself look guilty?
Anybody around at the time of Watergate, or who remembers what that was, will remember the night that President Richard Nixon fired a bunch of the Watergate prosecutors, and how that made him look even guiltier than that the missing 18 minutes in the White House Tapes, the ones where he recorded everything that was said in his office. We don’t know, for sure, what was on those 18 minutes, and the White House said the erasure was an accident. The problem with that came out when it was shown that for the secretary to have erased those tape she would have had to have been a contortionists who could hold that pose for the entire 18 minutes. Not likely.
Maybe the overall problem was, as Nixon would say later, that he allowed an “atmosphere” into the White House that allowed his staff to believe he would support them, or maybe he was just a crook.
The upshot of all this was that taken together, the tapes, the missing part of the tape, the firing itself, and the number of staff members who went to jail it was plain to the world that he just headed off the impeachment with his resignation.
There might have been nothing more to it than over-enthusiastic staff playing at being spies, or it could be that Nixon himself was behind it, we can but conjecture as the White House spent so much time stonewalling the whole thing.
My point is, even if there were no collusion with the Russians, President Trump seems to be working hard in an effort to make us think there is something to the idea.
So what if a number of his aids are under investigation or have pleaded guilty to charges, or even his threats to derail the entire investigation, right now you can’t say yes, or no, to the idea.
What I suggest is simple. I would like President Trump to come out in supporting the overall search for the truth. It might be hard to prove there was no collusion as it is often hard to prove something did not happen.
I can see where he might be concerned with the possibility of an impeachment proceeding taking place, as they do not use the same rules of law as found in a real court and an impeachment might just be politically motivated, in which case maybe he can get it done while the Republicans still hold Congress? At least those who decide they want to go on record as supporting the Donald.
I am not sure if the double jeopardy applies to Congress, they might even try again, if a first attempt fails, after the mid-terms.
We might even be able to sneak a few people into the White House staff who have at least some idea what they are doing?
That Joe Guy.
P.S. In the interest of full disclosure I would like to state that in 2016 I voted for the Libertarian Candidate.
