Donald Trump’s explosive responses bring the U.S. Even closer to a national nightmare
As President Trump is giving explosive responses regarding signs that counsel Robert Mueller is getting closer to the epicenter of White House power, the U.S. is on the edge a new national nightmare.
The entire investigation has taken a turn in recent days, raising the obvious possibility that regardless of Mueller’s findings, a period of political stress is inevitable.
At the same time, Trump seems to be willing to test the bounds of convention, as well as his own powers against a legal and political establishment that he strongly believes is conspiring against him. As the pressure increases, the President becomes more and more defiant.
Moreover, Trump took the decision that “this is a political fight and he’s going to fight it,” a White House official said in a statement.
However, the feelings of chaos that are floating around the White House are deepening. The President called the Russia probe a “witch hunt” again, over the weekend.
“The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt,” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
Recently, the political stakes skyrocketed during signs that the Russian election hacking could eventually expand to take into consideration Trump’s actions. Moreover, the President and his allies declared open season on Mueller and Rod Rosenstein.
“You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA.” Trump said in a tweet last week
The tweet rose speculation that Trump may pull a nuclear option by firing both Mueller and Rosenstein, a move that was strongly advised against, given the fact that it could provoke a constitutional crisis.
“It looks like we have got a simmering tea kettle here, and the President seems to be testing the waters about whether he ought to go ahead and fire Robert Mueller,” said Richard Ben-Veniste, a former Watergate prosecutor.
