Hitting Close to Home?

I have a suspicion that Dotard is cracking under the pressure of the Russia collusion investigation, a suspicion that things are heating up, hitting closer to home for him... what other reason would he have to tweet this out?

Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!

This contradicts his earlier narrative that the meeting was about the adoption of Russian babies. I suspect that Donald Jr is going to be taken in for interrogation by Mueller's people, and that his dad is shitting a brick over it. There are allegations that Trump pere used to smack his son around in front of other people. If that is true, I imagine he will be regretting that if his son decides that he doesn't want to be a fall guy for his father.

Tengrain has a really good post on this topic, including some funny takes regarding Trump 'sacrificing his eldest son for the good of the country'. I really think Junior needs to figure out that his dad means for him to take the fall before it's too late.

Maybe he can just say that Jr. wasn't that involved with the campaign and only worked for them for a little while and was a coffee boy, like he does with all the others.

Eventually Traitor Trump and his team will admit to being involved in a criminal conspiracy but rightwingers will say it was necessary because HRC emails, Seth Rich, benghazi, etc and then say So?

Much of this is clearly true, but the reality is Trump will never suffer any consequences from any of this.

1.) He will never be removed from office. Even if the House votes out articles of impeachment, there just won't be 67 votes to convict in the Senate.

2.) He will never be indicted. The DoJ has a policy of refusing to indict a sitting president (in general a very good policy), and nations that are not banana republics are very hesitant to prosecute former political leaders.

3.) He will immediately pardon any of his family members or those in his close inner circle. The only question is whether he will pardon Michael Cohen, who has pissed him off.

So don't invest too much in looking forward to a schadenfreude moment that will never happen...

I suspect he will stroke out from fear and rage before he is impeached.
