Can it be that Donald Trump has just scripted his own impeachment by the U.S. House of Representatives?
I am wondering if his declaration today to ABC News that he would be willing to break the law if a foreign power produced negative information about a political opponent while he is running for re-election as president of the United States. Trump said he would “look at” the information and wouldn’t feel the need to report it to the FBI.
FBI director Christopher Wray just a month ago told Congress that anyone who got such info must report it to his agency.
Trump told George Stephanopoulos that “the FBI director is wrong.”
Who do you trust? The lying, amoral, unethical head of state or the career professional prosecutor and law enforcement official?
I’m going to stand with Christopher Wray.
As for the House of Representatives and, yes, the Republican-controlled Senate, they should, too.
The question of the moment is this: Will they?
