Does Anyone Think Trump Did This To Give Him An Excuse To Resign The Presidency?.....

Is he looking for a way out. He says he didn't think it would be this hard. He recently expressed that he missed his pre-presidency life. Do you think that he's just pushing the envelope here to illicit so much push back on him that it would give him an opportunity to step down?

Just a thought!!!!

3. Is he smart enough too?

He has others around him to take the fall!

5. No.

It is to consolidate power, and to shut down the Russian investigation.

7. No.

It's a raw exercise of power. He thinks he can shove it down our throats and we will smile and say 'thank you can we have another?'. He's an authoritarian, as is Putin. We are not used to this in our country, but this is the logical end to hyper-partisanship. This is not a drill.

9. No. This is an inflection point.

What happens next will decide how the history of the republic gets written.

10. I think he has never had a serious consequence for anything he has ever done wrong his entire life.

I do not expect him to go quietly. I expect him to do anything to stay and punish those 'out to get him'.

12. He hates this job.

He doesn't know what he is doing and he knows it shows how in over his head he is. He can't stand being a failure in the eyes of most of America. He also knows he's about to get caught. He's a caged animal right now as it gets closer he'll run.

13. Besides whatever his mental condition is, he lacks all integrity that resigning calls for.

16. NO!

Trump and company know that they have been caught red handed, and unless an investigation is quashed, they know they will be toast. Thus you see Trump making a move that makes him look even more guilty than his earlier moves, and that is saying a lot. The only reason he would take such an action that makes him look guilty as hell is that he has no alternative other than being nailed as a criminal. He knows he has nothing to lose, so why not?

This is his hail Mary effort to avoid impeachment, jail, and total ruination. Either the investigation is quashed, or he is a goner.

18. Nope. What he wants is for everyone to adore him. For Russia to go away. For it to

be proven and crystal clear he won in a landslide. I am still thinking this has more to do with the FBI flub about emails between Weiner's pc and Hillary (which I personally think is what freaked people at the end - associating her with a pervert). That flub makes it look more like he "won" under false circumstances. Follow the ego.

19. No, not given what I've observed of his behavior.

This is Prefrv oybjvat hc gur Frcg naq rirelbar bs vzcbegnapr va Xvat'f Ynaqvat.
(ROT-13 because it's a spoiler for Game of Thrones, and I know some people haven't seen it and want to.)

It's a big old distraction, and a petty revenge, and convenient... (and a massive mistake and admission of guilt, but truly, people like him aren't nearly as good at Machiavelli as they think they are). The only thing that would have made it better for him would have been a hand-held cam unit, and him getting to shout You're Fired!

The funny thing about this? He probably thinks this will make the agencies fear him. The reality is most of the agencies now know they've got nothing to lose.
