We all know how the Trump presidency ends. Republicans play like there is nothing going on, while Democrats are waiting for the latest news stories about the drip-drip-drip of evidence. But whether one is living in a very cloudy fantasy land, or in reality, we know that this does not end well for Trump, and perhaps some of his family.
Today was another bombshell day as Hope Hicks resigned. More than what that means for the day-to-day operations at a White House, that never is able to chew gum and walk at the same time, is the legal aspect to this story.
Hicks was in the midst of the criminal aspects now so very much under investigation by the Special Counsel. She had a most cozy and close-up view of Trump and the day-to-day happenings in the White House. Let us recall she was present on Air Force One during a most important time for the Russian investigation. She reportedly was involved in the drafting of a memo of deceit that did not in any way accurately recount the reason for the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 which involved Trump. Jr. One can strongly assume Mueller wants to know her intimate level of knowledge concerning Trump’s repeated attempts to throw the Russian investigation off track.
There is dirty linen to air.
Some I suspect is literal.
But for the nation what matters is the legal linen she can now talk about with investigators.
