Unyielding dishonesty and belligerence have landed Trump one investigation away from impeachment.
We’ve reached a magical time in the great story unfolding before us – the time when everybody knows that Trump is guilty but the verdict is not yet in.
I remember exactly how it happened in the Watergate story – when everybody knew Nixon was guilty of ordering the break-in at the DNC headquarters at the Watergate hotel and office complex and supervised the cover-up but evidence sufficient to prove his guilt wasn’t yet available.
Guilty men lie and lie repeatedly.
Their early lies beget later lies – their little lies beget bigger lies – their implausible lies beget extraordinary lies – they tell more and more outrageous lies as their day of reckoning closes in.
It was true of Nixon and now it’s true of Trump.
The lies multiply – they become ever more far-fetched and finally the day arrives when lying doesn’t work anymore.
We’re there with Trump.
He lies practically every time he takes a breath but his lies aren’t working anymore.
He’s choking from lack of oxygen.
He’s a dead man lying.
There are amazing similarities in the way the two scandals unfolded.
