A look back at the most recent disastrous week of Trump’s failed presidency as impeachment inches closer to tarnish his corrupt, lackluster legacy.

A 2014 ‘Fox & Friends’ clip reveals what Trump really thinks about being impeached article from Alternet.

The two-faced double standards by Donald are quite astounding:

Trump Finally Beats A Clinton: Post Impeachment Twitter Reactions article from Crooks and Liars.

The Don finally got more votes – on being impeached – than Bill Clinton, though it’s a dubious record that will forever tarnish his failed presidency…

Trump Sets The Record For Most Votes For Impeachment article from PoliticusUSA.

More on Donnie’s history making impeachment as he finally won something with the most votes:

“Trump shattered the previous record of 228 votes for impeachment as he piled up the most votes in history in favor of a presidential impeachment.

As Jacob Levy tweeted:

Trump finally has a landslide that made history. Donald Trump lost the popular vote, and contrary to his revisionist history rantings, his Electoral College victory was not a landslide…”

Taking all his delusional, lie-filled tweets and putting them in a letter highlighting his unfitness for office isn’t going to do the Don any favors:

First thing Trump from Pinterest

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

A look back at the most recent failed week of his presidency begins today’s adventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as his problems keep growing and the weeks keep getting worse, how the havoc unleashed by the Donald in his first 3 years in office will cement his place in history as the most corrupt and ignorant president* ever ‘elected,’ the truth about Trump’s failed presidency reads like a Stephen King horror novel come to life, for someone who claims he’s making America great again, Trump’s actions speak louder than his ignorant words, yet again the Don has proved himself to be a national embarrassment during his most recent overseas trip, Donnie’s plot to ‘investigate the investigators’ is going up in a puff of smoke – for obvious reasons, Trump is screwing over the minority of moronic minions that were stupid enough to vote for him and so much more.

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 149th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.

A look back at the most recent failed week of Trump’s presidency as they keep getting worse and worse for him.

Trump caught blatantly lying about Ukrainian president ‘exonerating’ him in new interview article from The Raw Story.

Given that Donnie does nothing but lie, it’s not surprising that he’s lying about being exonerated, when in fact he’s far from it:

What Trump has actually done in his first 3 years article from Vox News.

The Donald’s legacy won’t be a good one, and while everyone focuses on his endless scandals and criminal acts, Donald has been busy destroying everything this country has ever stood for and he’ll go down in history as the most corrupt, ignorant president* to ever be ‘elected’ despite losing the popular vote by almost 3 million.

Half of America wants Trump removed from office. Why does the press keep shrugging that off? article from The Daily Kos.

It’s telling that over half this country – the majority that didn’t vote for him – wants the Don impeached:

“With the House Judiciary Committee poised to take up the impeachment baton and hold a new round of public hearings this month, the Beltway press continues to absorb and echo Republican talking points that claim the inquiry isn’t resonating with Americans. Because impeachments aren’t legal proceedings, the messaging wars that surround them take on added importance. And right now, by treating as no big deal the fact that basically half the country supports removing the president of the United States from office, the media is greatly helping Republicans spread their preferred impeachment message: The inquiry isn’t resonating.

“It’s a disappointing—if not unexpected—response for Democrats, who had hoped to use the hearings to sway public opinion,” the Associated Press recently reported, suggesting impeachment has been a political failure for Democrats because the hearings in recent weeks have not produced a tidal wave of public support. “Without that backing, it’s virtually impossible to imagine Republican senators voting to convict Trump.”

First of all, public support for impeachment could be 90% and it’s unlikely that loyalist Republican senators would vote to convict Donald Trump, so that whole premise is skewed. But also, the press’ preferred narrative about support for impeachment being stagnant just isn’t accurate.

Since Democrats announced their intention to hold impeachment hearings, public support for the inquiry has jumped 16 points, according to the tabulation at FiveThirtyEight, with public support for Trump’s removal from office increasing by 7 points. That’s solid confirmation that Americans are engaged on the issue and support the historic Democratic push to hold Trump accountable. It’s especially impressive during these polarizing times, when partisans remain so entrenched on most issues…”

Why Trump’s demented brain is fertile soil for bogus ideas to take root – hence part of the reason he’s such a moron…

Trump’s Impeachable Empirical Presidency

Trump Holding Head from PoliticusUSA

Since taking office President Donald J. Trump has made it evident that he never had any intention of upholding Democracy, following presidential protocol, keeping any of the promises he made to the minority that voted for him or obeying any laws under the delusional auspices that they don’t apply to him. The only thing he ever cared about is and always will be himself regardless of the consequences.

Getting caught in his Ukraine scandal is an impeachable offense, but truth be told, Trump has been committing impeachable offenses since being ‘elected’ despite losing the popular vote by almost 3 million, and Democrats limiting his impeachment inquiry to only Ukraine would be foolish and a waste of time. Trump has never been popular among the majority of Americans, nor will he ever be, and despite his false delusions of an empirical presidency, he is not above the law.

Impeachment is meant to be used as a last resort, oftentimes only in the most extreme cases. In Trump’s case, his endless abuses of power have surpassed any we’ve seen in the history of this country and encouraging foreign aid in helping win another election is unfathomable. After more than 3 years of subverting Democracy repeatedly and abusing his power, the time for Congress to act is long overdue.

In the case of extorting Ukraine, for which he is facing impeachment now, Trump was foolish enough to release a transcript of one of his calls which specifically calls for pressuring Ukraine into digging up dirt to use against Joe Biden, one of his potential challengers in the 2020 election. The fact that he withheld Military aid to Ukraine that was mandated by Congress makes this criminal act even worse. The fact that he confessed to committing the crime during an interview with Fox ‘News’ doesn’t help his case either.

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 317

Aunt Crabby Trump from Pinterest

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

We begin today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* with his going on Fox faux news – his Ministry of Propaganda outlet – and admitting that he did indeed commit an impeachable offense, White House emails reveal that there was an attempted cover up after Donnie committed Treason – meaning his claims of everything being ‘perfect’ and ‘doing nothing wrong’ are just more examples of his always lying to cover his corrupt ass, why it may be necessary to continue impeaching Donnie – since the equally treasonous GOP Senate will most likely continue trying to acquit him regardless of the fact that he’s guilty as hell of multiple crimes, why Congress needs to hold impeachment inquiries on all the crimes the Don has committed – not just Ukraine, Donald’s desperation at tossing Giuliani under the bus by claiming that he never worked in Ukraine for him – a flat out lie – is quite revealing and so much more.

Trump Self Destructs On Fox And Admits Impeachable Offenses article from PoliticusUSA.

Donnie just doesn’t know when to shut up and the more he speaks and tweets, the deeper the hole he digs himself – and it’s going to come back to haunt him:

Trump just gave away the game on his bribery scheme in a live interview to baffled Fox News hosts article from The Raw Story.

More on the Donald admitting his guilt to his Ministry of Propaganda with his delusional phone in to Fox faux news while digging himself a hole that he’ll never be able to slither out of:

Congress Has No Other Option Than to Impeach and Remove the President From Office article from Common Dreams.

There is no doubt that the Don has committed a myriad of impeachable crimes, now it just remains to be seen whether or not the Senate will prove they’re just as guilty as he is or not.

Fiona Hill’s Testimony Was Devastating for Trump article from The Nation.

Dr. Fiona Hill provided a lot of damage to the Don and totally eviscerated any shred of doubt as to his guilt:

“Former White House adviser Fiona Hill was far and away the most impressive of the witnesses in the impeachment hearings against Donald Trump. This is a reflection more of how she presented her case than of the particular story she told. There are only minor inconsistencies among the witnesses: All the accounts confirm that Donald Trump and his inner circle used the threat of withholding foreign aid to compel the Ukrainian government to open up investigations that would implicate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

But the witnesses varied greatly in how they carried themselves. Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was jittery and flustered, understandably so since he was a career military man giving evidence against the commander in chief. EU ambassador Gordon Sondland had the air of a wealthy dilettante trying to fast-talk his way out of a mess. A few of the other witnesses came across as colorless functionaries.

Hill stood out from the pack. She was poised, confident, brisk in her remarks, unflustered by browbeating from Republican representatives, and in utter command of her facts and arguments. Her testimony clarified the reality that the Trump administration had a two-track Ukraine policy: an official policy executed by foreign policy professionals and a nakedly political policy sneakily pushed along by Gordon Sondland and others.

About Sondland, Hill noted, “He was being involved in a domestic political errand, and we were being involved in national security foreign policy. And those two things had just diverged.” That divergence between the “domestic political errand” and official policy cuts to the heart of the scandal…”

Trump essentially admitted on live TV to doing the thing he’s accused of in the impeachment inquiry article from Business Insider.

The endless depths of stupidity emitted by our illegitimate president* are astounding and the fact that he can’t keep his mouth shut while ranting to his Ministry of Propaganda is going to hurt him.

What Goes Around Comes Around

Seffsaid Kindness from Pinterest

Just a reminder from the Internet about the benefits of Paying It Forward and what human kindness can do:

One day a man saw a old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her. Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry.

He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was that chill which only fear can put in you.

He said, ‘I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.’

Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad enough. Bryan crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack, skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon he was able to change the tire. But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt.

As he was tightening up the lug nuts, she rolled down the window and began to talk to him. She told him that she was from St. Louis and was only just passing through. She couldn’t thank him enough for coming to her aid.

Bryan just smiled as he closed her trunk. The lady asked how much she owed him. Any amount would have been all right with her. She already imagined all the awful things that could have happened had he not stopped.

Bryan never thought twice about being paid.

This was not a job to him. This was helping someone in need, and God knows there were plenty, who had given him a hand in the past. He had lived his whole life that way, and it never occurred to him to act any other way.

He told her that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she saw someone who needed help, she could give that person the assistance they needed, and Bryan added, ‘And think of me.’

He waited until she started her car and drove off. It had been a cold and depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for home, disappearing into the twilight.

A few miles down the road the lady saw a small cafe. She went in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off before she made the last leg of her trip home. It was a dingy looking restaurant. Outside were two old gas pumps. The whole scene was unfamiliar to her. The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to wipe her wet hair. She had a sweet smile, one that even being on her feet for the whole day couldn’t erase. The lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let the strain and aches change her attitude. The old lady wondered how someone who had so little could be so giving to a stranger. Then she remembered Bryan.

After the lady finished her meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get change for her hundred dollar bill, but the old lady had slipped right out the door. She was gone by the time the waitress came back. The waitress wondered where the lady could be… Then she noticed something written on the napkin.

There were tears in her eyes when she read what the lady wrote: ‘You don’t owe me anything.. I have been there too. Somebody once helped me out, the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do: Do not let this chain of love end with you.’

Under the napkin were four more $100 bills.

Well, there were tables to clear, sugar bowls to fill, and people to serve, but the waitress made it through another day.. That night when she got home from work and climbed into bed, she was thinking about the money and what the lady had written. How could the lady have known how much she and her husband needed it? With the baby due next month, it was going to be hard….

She knew how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping next to her, she gave him a soft kiss and whispered soft and low, ‘Everything’s going to be all right. I love you, Bryan Anderson.’

There is an old saying ‘What goes around comes around.’ Today I sent you this story, and I’m asking you to pass it on. Let this light shine.

Good friends are like stars….You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.

WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.

Impeach Trump from Pinterest

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

Witness tampering and intimidation begin today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as he threatened his former Ambassador while she was testifying at his impeachment hearing – making it even easier to get rid of his corrupt, ignorant ass, why Trump’s conduct is so much worse than Nixon’s, the Don’s failed presidency is in free fall – soon his meltdowns will be coming more frequently and furiously, impeachment inquiry reveals that there is no question he did it – it’s just a matter of whether or not he’ll get away with it, in his typical desperate fashion of lying repeatedly while trying to feign innocence, the Donald showed yet again how profoundly idiotic he truly is, in addition to all the crimes he has committed, the impeachment inquiries have made it blatantly obvious that Donnie never should have been put in the oval office in the first place and much more.

Trump Engaged in Witness Tampering During Ambassador’s Testimony article from Truthout.

Trump was trying to intimidate a former Ambassador while she was giving testimony during his impeachment hearing, and that is a crime – adding yet more ammunition to his imminent implosion.

President helped ‘increase anti-Trump turnout’ in red-state governor’s races — which could spell disaster for the GOP article from The Raw Story.

Donald is toxic and the more he melts down and reveals lower depths of his stupidity, the more the majority that never supported him to begin with grows – and it’s going to cost him and his equally guilty enablers big time.

Get Trump First, But Then… article from Counter Punch.

Holding Trump accountable for his Treason and other crimes against humanity is critical, and holding the equally Treasonous Republicans that have defended and enabled him is too.

Nancy Pelosi Calls Trump Out For Being Insecure And Feeling Like ‘An Imposter’ article from Crooks and Liars.

Pelosi is a real threat to the Don because giving him a taste of his own medicine, getting under his skin and laughing at him while pointing out his weaknesses will make his melt downs come more frequently:

“Nancy Pelosi had a brutal analysis of why Trump continues to hurt himself with self-inflicted wounds. He is insecure and he knows he is an imposter. This analysis, which appears shocking on point, was given during an interview with Face the Nation, and Pelosi did not hold back.

First, they talked about why Trump decided to tweet about former Ambassador Maria Yovanovitch while she was testifying, which was largely panned as an abuse of power or witness intimidation.

MARGARET BRENNAN: Why do you think he was tweeting about her?…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* with more lies and gaslighting as his desperation to claim innocence over his crimes continues growing, Ukraine testimony reveals that Trump is indeed a Russian asset, the list of potentially impeachable offenses committed by Trump is quite lengthy and growing longer with each passing day, terrorizing immigrant children and their families is going to come back to haunt Donnie eventually, Trump was overheard talking to Ukraine about investigating Biden – shooting down his entire defense that he knew nothing about it, the GOP can’t abandon Trump now because they’re all guilty, Donald just keeps digging himself a deeper hole that he’ll never be able to slither out of and so much more.

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 146th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.

A look back at the most recent week of Trump’s failed presidency as lies and gaslighting prevail in his desperate attempt to claim innocence over his crimes.

The president has already confessed to his crimes article from The Week.

Why prosecuting Donnie is so simple – because he’s profoundly corrupt and stupid and he makes it entirely too easy:

Trump struggles to keep his story straight on impeachment hearings article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.

The problem with incessantly lying like the Don does is that it’s impossible to keep your fairy tales straight and eventually they exact a massive toll.

Trump faces ‘lock him up’ chants and ‘impeach’ signs as he delivers Veterans Day speech in New York article from Alternet.

Donald’s delusional reality is crashing around him yet he still illegally uses his office for personal gain and the majority that doesn’t support his ignorant ass is growing:

“President Donald Trump continued his strategy of using his office for political gain, including re-election, by delivering for the first time a speech in New York City on Veterans Day. Trump recently attended several sporting events where there were protests against him, and today was no different.

Surrounding Madison Square Park in Manhattan are several tall buildings, some of which featured signs that read “Impeach,” “Impeach and convict,” and “Dump Trump.” Outside the Manhattan park where Trump was speaking chants of “lock him up” and “impeach and remove” could be heard.

Recent reports show Trump has decided to ignore the historic separation of a president’s political campaign and his public appearances and the use of the White House. After being caught fraudulently fundraising, last week Trump announced he would host the winner of a social media contest promoting his campaign at the White House.

The usual Sunday morning meltdown over his imminent impeachment begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as he now blames his predecessor for his malfeasance that will end his already failed presidency, Donnie’s fantasy land is going to be his undoing since he can’t face reality, the delusional distractions from Donnie over his impeachment are increasingly more desperate and won’t save his Treasonous ass from impeachment, it’s time to start giving the Don a taste of his own medicine and treating him as he treats others, the more we learn, the worse things appear for Donnie – despite the lies of his treasonous enablers, Trump’s orders to defy subpoenas is also an impeachable offense – and his stupidity in fighting his imminent impeachment is going to cost him bigly and much more.

Trump Has A Sunday Meltdown And Claims Obama Is Behind The Ukraine Whistleblower article from PoliticusUSA.

Simply amazing how his malfeasance is always everyone else’s fault and as usual Trump spent Sunday morning melting down over the imminent impeachment that will take his failed presidency down:

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 145th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt.

A look back at the most recent disastrous week of our failed, illegitimate president* as his impeachment keeps gaining momentum.

Trump’s obsession with Ukraine has deep roots: Is it all a cover-up for his 2016 crimes? article from Salon News.

Trump is implying that Ukraine helped get him elected to cover-up Russia’s help in getting him elected – for obvious reasons – but either way he is and always will be an illegitimate president’ that lost the popular vote bigly…

Trump wants whistleblower to do what he wouldn’t: Answer questions in person article from NBC News.

The irony, double standards and hypocrisy run rampant in Donnie’s fantasy land as he expects things from others that he refuses to do:

“President Donald Trump said Monday that written answers from the whistleblower to Congress would be unacceptable — although such answers were fine for the president when dealing with former special counsel Robert Mueller.

“The Whistleblower gave false information & dealt with corrupt politician Schiff,” Trump tweeted. “He must be brought forward to testify. Written answers not acceptable! Where is the 2nd Whistleblower? He disappeared after I released the transcript. Does he even exist? Where is the informant? Con!”

Trump was responding to news that Mark Zaid, the attorney for both known whistleblowers who came forward with concerns about Trump’s conduct toward Ukraine, said the first whistleblower offered to provide written answers to House investigators to protect his or her identity. Zaid told NBC News on Sunday that he had not yet received a substantive response from House Intelligence Committee Republicans about his offer.

Trump’s actions with regard to Ukraine, which included placing a months-long hold on military aid and asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to probe former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who had business dealings in the country, as well as a debunked conspiracy involving Democrats and the 2016 election, are at the center of the House impeachment probe. The inquiry began after the existence of the first whistleblower’s complaint, which focuses on the July 25 phone call between Trump and Zelenskiy, became known. Trump has repeatedly claimed the whistleblower made false claims, though the complaint was corroborated by the call summary his White House released…”

‘Treasure trove’ of Mueller memos shows how Trump has benefited the Russians ‘beyond their wildest expectations’ article from The Raw Story.

Committing more Treason and creating more conspiracy theories to try and convince the majority of Americans that don’t support his corrupt, ignorant ass that Ukraine, not Russia helped him get ‘elected’ isn’t going to work well for Donnie:

Mentally ill Trump from Pinterest

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

We begin today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* with him digging himself a deeper hole that he’ll never slither out of as he repeatedly lies about his Treasonous actions with delusional distractions, despite his delusions, Donnie is not above the law and he’s going to learn that the hard way, Donnie greeted with chants of ‘Lock Him Up’ when he attended game 5 of the World Series – much to his chagrin, there is already a lot of evidence of Trump’s treason with Ukraine but if you look at the bulk of his other actions there are a multitude of things he should have already been removed from office and put behind bars for and so much more.

The President Has No Defense article from Politico.

Rather than repeatedly lying about his Treasonous actions while trying to defend the indefensible, Trump should admit to what he has done and take responsibility for it – which for him is impossible because he lives in a delusional alternate reality that doesn’t exist and it’s going to end up costing him bigly.

Trump’s Legal Team Is Now Openly Acknowledging That He Is Committing Crimes article from PoliticusUSA.

The desperation of Trump’s ‘Legal’ Team in defending the indefensible is getting ridiculous and it’s going to get he and his enablers in deeper shit:

Trump’s presidency is built on lies. Does he actually believe them? article from The Guardian.

Trump’s entire brand is built on fraud and lies, but his actions regarding Ukraine take stupidity to a whole new level.

Self-Dealing in Ukraine: The Core of the Impeachment Inquiry article from Lawfare Blog.

A look at one of the many laws that Donnie has broken and could be held accountable for despite his ‘legal’ team’s delusional beliefs of his being above the law:

“As the Ukraine story develops, the public focus has remained largely on wrongdoing by the president outside the realm of criminal law, focusing instead on President Trump’s apparent use of his office for personal gain. On one level, this makes sense: Impeachment is only about removal of the president from office, not about criminal prosecution and imprisonment. So the standards and processes for impeachment are different.

But it would be a mistake to ignore the criminal law entirely. Evidence of criminal misconduct, specifically, the federal bribery statute, should influence political judgments about impeachment. After all, “Bribery” is one of the grounds for impeachment specifically enumerated in the Constitution.

Before getting involved in foreign policy work, most of my professional work was in criminal justice. The emerging case should be understood from both of these perspectives. Here, I offer a view of how a public corruption prosecutor might regard the way the case is taking shape. In addition to the role that possible criminal wrongdoing by the president could play in the ongoing impeachment inquiry, evidence about criminal misconduct might also apply, more directly, to the possible investigations of others beyond the president—including Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.

The core of the impeachment inquiry is about whether Trump engaged in self-dealing, where he used his power in a publicly held enterprise (that is, the government of the United States) for personal gain. Most executives in the private sector know what self-dealing is, and recent headlines about Renault-Nissan or WeWork have reminded them. They also know how most corporate boards would handle a case of self-dealing that involved important programs and sums of money, and in which the CEO had fired executives who interfered with the self-dealing…”

Article II of the Constitution: Trump’s ‘right to do whatever I want?’ Or a roadmap for impeachment? article from USA Today.

Article II of the Constitution gives the president broad powers, but it also defines reasons for impeachment when necessary – but since Trump can’t read he doesn’t fully understand it.

Like Watergate with morons Trump from Pinterest

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

The vain, vulgar, thin-skinned lying narcissist ignorantly providing all the evidence for his impeachment begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* as Trump’s criminal enterprise from the White House consumes his already failed presidency and prepares to swallow him whole, the central themes of Trump’s illegitimate tenure – stupidity and corruption – are going to play a major role in ending his failed fraudulent presidency, each day brings new insight into the completely corrupt criminal actions Trump keeps perpetrating, Donnie blames the media and Democrats for calling out his corruption after public pressure makes him back his Doral ‘Resort’ out of hosting the G7 next year for personal profit and so much more.

Trump is getting worse article from The Week.

The profound ignorance and corruption emanating from the White House is dragging what little is left of Trump’s failed presidency down the drain as he continues providing more than ample evidence for his impeachment.

White House admits Trump held up U.S. aid for Ukraine as part of quid pro quo push for investigation into Democrats article from The New York Daily News.

Give the man a shovel and he just buries himself… with an administration as corrupt and stupid as he is, Trump’s impeachment is going to be slow and painful.

The week Donald Trump’s presidency crashed and burned – and Republicans have noticed article from Salon.

Trump’s treachery and Treason have been on full display as he keeps digging his grave a little deeper and people are finally starting to notice just how illegitimate, incompetent and corrupt he is:

An avalanche of confessions: Trump’s chief of staff just admitted a stunning amount of wrongdoing on live TV article from Alternet.

How one of the Don’s moronic minions may have put the final nail in his corrupt coffin:

“Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney adopted a new approach to President Donald Trump’s war on impeachment in a Thursday press briefing: admitting a gigantic amount of wrongdoing in one sitting and daring Republicans to care.

The avalanche of confessions began in the White House briefing room, where Mulvaney revealed that the United States will host the upcoming G7 summit of world leaders at Trump National Doral in Miami, the president’s own Florida resort.

This is a grotesquely corrupt move, and the White House knows it. Even if, as Mulvaney claimed, the Doral was the best possible location for the G7 in the country — a ridiculous assertion — it would still be incumbent on the administration to choose another location to avoid the appearance of corruption and the reality of a conflict of interest. Mulvaney claimed that, all things considered, Trump decided he would “take the hit” of accusations of corruption. But it’s not just Trump who “takes the hit,” it’s the entire federal government, and the United States itself, that gets stained with corruption, and that’s a condemnable choice to make.

Mulvaney even admitted: “There’s plenty of other good places in this country to hold a large event. There’s no question.” And yet, they still chose absolutely the most corrupt place to do it…”

We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Impeachment article from The Nation.

With the profound corruption of Trump and his administrations, it’s time to take a serious look at who they are and what they’ve done and to hold them accountable.
