I predict that within 2 weeks from June 28, Sunday, Donald Trump will resign..(maybe sooner)

The news about Putin paying to kill American troops is the final straw...Trump knew & did nothing.

1. He wants to.

We want him to.

The entire Republican Party in Washington wants him to.

But, more importantly, the New York State AG REALLY wants him to retire. So he won't.

10. Pence would become President

They will try to find someone else to nominate to take the VP spot (must be confirmed by Congress). And the Republican Party will fight about how to redeem their reputation (not redeem themselves - it's too late for that) and find someone else to run in November. Maybe Pence. Maybe Romney. Haley? Liz Chaney? Who knows.

if this occurs the Democrats should not prosecute him and wait until President Biden is president then go after his a$$ big time.

11. Would like him to resign, but Russia maybe paying a bounty isn't going to do it, unfortunately.

We've funded the other side against Russia and lots of other countries. In fact, we helped the Afghans against Russia. We should have left there long ago, anyway.

..You will see that after today, the wind will change for the Republican Party. As has been said...."This is
treason..."


It will take some time, but Trump will resign..Trump knew and he did nothing....

This is the final straw for Donald Trump

21. Not. A. Chance.

Trump knows that, the minute he's out of office, he's subject to criminal prosecution that could land him behind bars for the rest of his life. Sure, theoretically, he could have a deal in place for Pence to immediately pardon him, but he knows full well that, the minute he hands in his resignation letter, such a deal is unenforceable and, with his track record of double-crossing people and reneging on deals as his standard operating procedure, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't trust Pence not to do the same, once he has all the power and Trump has none.

In fact, that's why I'm fairly sure that, should Trump lose in November, he's going to have to be dragged out of the Oval Office by the Secret Service on January 20th. Knowing that the only likely choices for him are the White House or the "big house," he'll do everything he can to stay in power, even if it means destroying our nation.

22. No presidential pardon will protect Trump from New York state charges....

For his tax avoidance and real estate fraud charges that are pending. Not to mention states where Trump has businesses that did not pay taxes.

Orange will be Trump's everyday wear.

I will never believe it until it is done and the paper work is all signed and filed in the appropriate place. Oh, and he is physically completely out of the White House.

To resign is to admit he is wrong. Trump is incapable of doing this.

And so far, I hear crickets from the GOP about this, meaning they are fine with it.

34. More significantly, Trump knows about the bounties now and is doing nothing.

He can say he didn't know, but now he does. Now we see once and for all where his loyalties lie -- with Putin or with the people of the United States.

39. I've felt this would happen for some time

Republicans are ruthless.
They don't like Trump - just like we don't.
Yet they've proved they would hold their noses if he kept them in power ...

Make no mistake: the Republicans enabled Trump

Now? If Trump represents them losing power and seats on congress?
They'll throw him out with the evening garbage.

To save face, Trump can feign illness. Pence takes over and pardons him (after the election because Trump has dirt on the Republicans too)

The Republicans will have already run internal polling on who would be the most competitive against Joe Biden. And away they go.

Trump serves as a public pinata. Shinny new candidate gets a free pass from many.
MAGAts don't bolt because poor Trumpy got sick.

Nixon messed with the Vietnam peace talks before he was president.
Reagan: Iran contra
GHW Bush: Willie Horton ad
GW Bush Florida 2000. Kerry swiftboating 2004
Obama: Muslim & Kenyan smears along with death panels
Trump: Russia, Ukraine, etc
(many more transgressions not listed)

This is how the Republicans operate. They've operated this way my whole life.

If they want Trump to resign, he'll resign. They could still impeach him.
They're not going to let Trump take them entirely down the toilet.
