Roger Stone was convicted on all seven counts on Friday. Trump’s former deputy executive campaign manager, Rick Gates, testified that Trump informed him and others that important information was soon to come from Wikileaks which could give his campaign an advantage. Stone confirmed part of that information. When Trump submitted written testimony to Mueller, he claimed he was completely unaware of any outside information related to his campaign in the middle of 2016. This is now under investigation.
“Did the President lie? Was the President not truthful in his responses to the Mueller investigation?” House general counsel Douglas Letter told the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit about why the House now needs access to grand jury material Mueller collected in his investigation.
I have a single question. How many violations of the Constitution are required to remove a sitting president from office? Trump is guilty of abusing his powers for political gain, obstruction of justice, tampering with witnesses, and now lying to Robert Mueller’s team. Trump has committed more crimes than John Gotti. He is not your illegitimate president; he is your criminal-in-chief.
Trump lacks the intelligence to mount a sensible defense. He continues to attack his adversaries without merit. His lies are no longer working. As it is with everything in life, the truth always rises into the light as falsehoods are exposed. Trump’s entire life is a lie. He is a failure; nothing more than a con man who has made fools of millions of Americans who choose to be ignorant rather than face reality in 2016 and continue to do so today.
The American people deserve better.
