President Nixon escaped impeachment and being charged with crimes thanks to his pardoning by President Ford. That, however, didn’t save Nixon’s personal lawyer and a cadre of his henchmen from prison terms.
President Trump reportedly went to the Arizona War Memorial in Hawaii and had no idea what it was all about. The President of the United States asked and was told like a child; it memorializes the memory of the crew of the USS Arizona, as well as all the other service members and civilians killed in Japan’s sneak attack on December 7, 1941. Trump had no idea 2,341 sailors, soldiers, and Marines were effectively murdered along with 49 civilians.
Trump’s lack of knowledge about U.S. history is shared by those around him and those who serve him. Rep. Devin Nunes, one of Trump’s biggest toadies, now finds himself exposed after being tied to Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.
Former GOP Congressman and Tea party darling Joe Walsh appearing on Bill Maher on Friday night when asked by the host about Nunes responded by calling him a “meathead” and saying, “I think he’s in trouble.
“He’s clearly in trouble.”
Maher then asked…
“I don’t know, possibly…he and Parnas were like best friends; communicating on this deal, he was part of it. He denied he knew the guy — he’s in trouble.”
The U.S. Senate controlled by the GOP may vote to dismiss the impeachment of President Trump. The Justice Department under AG Barr may never investigate a single crime committed by any of Trump’s cronies, but they should all including William Barr, stop and consider the history and what will happen if Trump loses the 2020 Presidential election.
Trump may not know who Herbert Kalmbach was or, for that matter even know who John Mitchell was or that the former was President Nixon’s personal lawyer and later was the 67th Attorney General much less that they went to jail. He doesn’t care enough to realize many of his cronies are headed to jail if he comes up short in 2020’s electoral count.
