In “The Art of the Deal” Donald Trump discusses an ideal scenario – one where he benefits in multiple ways from the same “deal”. And now we know that he has masterminded yet another such deal for himself.
By witholding funding from Ukraine to get them to investigate Joe Biden’s son, Trump benefits in multiple ways. First, and most importantly, he pleases the man who put him into office and can take him out just as easily: Vladimir Putin. Secondly, he besmirches the reputation of his most likely political opponent, Joe Biden.
The press is focused on the second, lesser benefit to Trump because it has been exposed via the whistleblower action and Trump’s own slow leaks of the truth. Given that Trump’s multiple personal conversations with Putin have not been exposed, we don’t yet have proof that he was withholding the money on the express orders of Putin, but we do know that Ukraine is fighting an undeclared war with Russia and that the money withheld by Trump was vital to Ukraine’s self defense. Its clear that Trump was helping his friend while also helping himself.
This is just the latest of a myriad of crimes committed by Donald Trump – many of which have already risen to the standard of High Crimes and Misdemeanors. The crimes will continue as long as Trump is in office.
There is no doubt that Donald Trump has betrayed his oath of office and is a traitor to the United States. He is a clear and present danger every day he is in office. Even Republicans MUST see reality now. He must be impeached!
