How we know Donald Trump is going down

If you listen to nearly anyone in the media this week, on the left or right, you’ll get the impression that Donald Trump is about to magically fire Robert Mueller (even though he can’t do that), and as a result Trump will magically be off the hook for his criminal antics (even though it doesn’t work that way). But here in the real world, it’s never been more clear that Trump is going down. In fact it’s Trump himself who’s showing us why he’ll go down.

Just today, Trump tepidly floated the idea that maybe he’ll consider pardoning Michael Flynn at some point. This might have been a smart move on his part, six months ago. By now Flynn has already legally committed himself to a plea deal, and he’s turned over incriminating evidence against Trump and other big fish. Because Trump is hesitant and indecisive by nature, he blew the opportunity to save himself with a Flynn pardon a long time ago. This is part of a larger pattern.

This fall, Trump had the opportunity to try to get Robert Mueller fired back before any arrests got underway. It would have been a convoluted process, and there’s a strong chance it would have backfired on him, but he did have a window of opportunity. However now that four of his own people have been arrested and two of them have cut a deal, he doesn’t have a fraction of the political muscle required to get away with it. As we’ve previously explained, the Republican Party is only making noise about Mueller so it can make the case to Trump’s base that it tried to stop Mueller.

Once the public figures out that Donald Trump isn’t about to fire Robert Mueller, the media will move on to claiming that Trump is about to start a war as a distraction from his scandal. But again, it’s far too late for Trump to get away with starting a needless war; that window closed months ago. Trump is hesitant and tepid by nature, and he’s not a man of action until it’s far too late to matter. It’s how we know he’s going down.

The three crucial Trump-Russia stories you missed this week

There are the stories that make their way to the forefront of media coverage because they sound important in the moment or they make for good ratings. Then there are the stories that should have gotten more coverage than they did, because they’ll end up being crucial. This past week, full of noise and bombast and misdirection, was a potent reminder of that disparity. Here are the three crucial Trump-Russia stories you may have missed, and why they matter.

As per usual, the biggest news in the Trump-Russia scandal continues to arrive on Friday. This time around we received the revealing news from the Washington Post that Jared Kushner is hiring a crisis management company (link). This means he knows he’s about to be arrested, or he’s about to cut a deal, or he’s otherwise about to face a reputational crisis. In other words, even as all the noise about Mueller supposedly being fired plays out on cable television, Mueller is actually about to take down Trump’s son-in-law.

In another major development, Mueller has seized Michael Flynn’s banking records from Deutsche Bank, according to the Wall Street Journal (link). Why does this matter? Mueller already has a plea deal with Flynn. There is no need for him to continue chasing down Flynn’s every last possible transgressionunless those transgressions are going to help expose crimes committed by someone like Donald Trump or Jared Kushner. Deutsche Bank has floated questionable loans to both of those men, and it has a history of facilitating Russian money laundering. Mueller seems to think Flynn’s banking records will give him the evidence he needs against a bigger fish.

The third crucial underreported Trump-Russia story this week is that Marco Rubio and Bob Corker both basically announced their campaigns for president in 2020 on Friday (link). This means they don’t think Donald Trump will still be in office by 2020, and even if Mike Pence inherits the presidency, they don’t think he’ll survive to run as the incumbent in 2020 either. Are we looking at back to back impeachments?

Jared Kushner reveals that he knows hes about to go down in flames

In the days since Special Counsel Robert Mueller cut a plea deal with Michael Flynn, all eyes have been focused on the same question: whos next? There are only a handful of people Flynn could have given up in order to get the lenient deal that he did. Various signs have pointed to it being Donald Trumps son-in-law Jared Kushner. Now Kushner himself is sending up a flare and tipping off that he knows its about to hit the fan for him.

Kushner and his legal team are in the process of hiring a crisis management firm, according to a new Washington Post report (link). What does this mean? Congressman Ted Lieu explained it in this manner: The only reason Jared Kushner would hire a crisis public relations firm is because … wait for it … A CRISIS IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN TO HIM. Also, anyone who needs a crisis firm should not have a security clearance. Oh, and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, you backed the wrong person.

There are at least a few different reasons why Kushner could want a crisis management firm at this time, but none of them are good. If hes been informed that hes about to be arrested, he could be hiring the firm to try to protect his reputation as he fights the criminal charges involved. If hes decided to cut a plea deal against Donald Trump, he could be looking to protect his reputation during the resulting fallout.

Regardless of whats about to play out, Ted Lieu is correct: people dont hire crisis management firms unless they know theyre about to face an imminent public relations crisis. The move doesnt mean hes guilty, but it does strongly signal that he believes hes about to be formally accused of something very serious. WaPo Says Jared Kushner began working on hiring a firm two weeks ago, so this storyline may be much further along than we know. Stay tuned.
