The sheer terror coming out of the White House has been evident for quite some time, but the revelation that Donald Trump was in business with the Russians during the presidential campaigns and well past the date Trump and his associates first claimed the business deal ended, has set the president’s fear at a fever pitch.
On Friday, the sentencing memos for Trump’s former personal attorney and “fixer,” Michael Cohen, as well as Trump’s one-time campaign manager, Paul Manafort, are expected to be released. On Tuesday, the sentencing memo of Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, proved that he has been cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a much more extensive manner than was suspected.
Trump has many reasons to fear this cooperation. Even Fox News has concluded that the president’s son, Donald Trump, Jr., will probably be indicted. Even Junior himself has told friends he expects this to happen. Meanwhile, a pending case in New York City involving Trump’s businesses and his violations of the emoluments clause is moving forward. All three of his oldest children, as well as his son-in-law Jared Kushner, are implicated in that violation.
Trump has little recourse at this point but to try to convince the American people that the FBI, the Department of Justice, the Special Counsel’s office, his predecessor President Barack Obama, the DNC, and his former political opponent Hillary Clinton have all colluded to lie and take him down. The evidence that Mueller has gathered throughout the investigation, however, is likely to prove that it is Trump himself, as well as those in the upper levels of his campaign staff and presidential administration, are the ones who are corrupt.
