I got in from gym and swim last night saying to myself I'll turn on MSNBC news just to check in. wow, was I surprised. BREAKING NEWS Micheal Flynn was "fired" (Resigned) in disgrace from his position as National Security Adviser after 24 days in office.
This reminded me of my military service and watching men crack under fire and a morally debouched, anti-health care, Culturally Poisoned President grow small and mentally crackup before our eyes on TV under the pressure of reality. Most of us Americans who share a pride in our constitution and its laws however imperfect do not want to see our country go through such a gut wrenching test of our Democracy. To our credit members of both party's stepped to the plate to restore balance (Ma'at) as quickly as possible.
However, it seems when we citizens fail to learn the lessons of our past we are doomed to repeat them. Remember some went to jail but the leader did not. Now Trump and the forty thieves make Nixon look like a boy scout.
Trump, not unlike the Republican "criminal" President Nixon who resigned in disgrace after crimes, lies and the cover up were laid out beyond a reasonable doubt. Nixon fired the justice department head because they were getting too close. Did this just happen again? Yesterday, I saw a President Trump as he was asked about Flynn and the Russians and I heard him say ".. he knew nothing about it .. and he will look into it.,,"
I remember tricky Dick being asked about the WaterGate crime and lying to us the people saying - he knew nothing about it - This in my opinion is a remarkably similar unraveling of moral thread that has led to "emperors" with no cloths. Unlike Nixon this time, it is not just about domestic criminal activity; but in a worst case scenario treason.
So once again the question to a Republican President is: What did the President know and when did he know it?
