Instability-in-chief Donald Trump had this to tweet out this morning:
That's right. He's threatening fired FBI director James Comey with "tapes" (I love how he doesn't know how to use quotes) that would blow him out of the water if he dares to leak to the press.
As another tweet indicated:
Yes. The tapes might exist. The tapes probably contradict Trump. Trump will release them anyway because he's insane, a moron, and unhinged.
The longer the GOP allows this to go on, the more the Republic is in danger. The Constitution is merely a piece of paper unless all stakeholders uphold it. Right now, Republicans are not abiding by the spirit of the Constitution, and are abiding by the letter of it only by the skin of their teeth. We can argue whether or not collusion with Russia is treason. But what Trump is doing now in upending Constitutional norms as the noose tightens around him is treason. We pledge loyalty not to men or women, but to this 200 year old document. Once we betray it, we betray everything.
The GOP, in its quest for absolute power, has allowed a viper into the nest. This snake threatens to kill us all. Only the GOP has the power to stop him at this moment. By the time Democrats retake the House and Senate and remove him post-2018, the damage, though not irreparable, will take even longer to fix. It's time to excise this cancer. Now.
