Not IF but WHEN

The day after the 2016 election I predicted that Donald Trump would not make it through four years of office. Now I believe it is a 99% chance he will not last the full term.

Richard Nixon was impeached by the House for lying. He resigned before he could be convicted by the Senate. Bill Clinton was impeached by the House for lying. But he survived the full conviction vote in the Senate.

It is clear that Donald Trump thinks nothing of lying. He may be a successful businessman, he may have family that love him, he may have many loyal and competent employees in his many businesses. And no doubt he will have many supporters in Congress, among his soon-to-be Cabinet members and on his White House staff.

But it is clear he has no concept of the truth and little idea or care of how his decisions affect others. This is the textbook definition of psychopathy.

Further, what is becoming more and more known about his personal life and his business dealings will not be accepted by the American people and ultimately Congress.

Whether Donald Trump chooses to resign before impeachment or after impeachment, or whether he will choose to go through the impeachment trial in the Senate is anyone's guess. This we do know, however: that no matter how he exits he will declare it a victory.

It is not a matter of IF but WHEN.
