I WISH I'D SAID THIS TOO

"Trump is revealed as a chronic liar. He claimed he never asked for loyalty from FBI director James Comey. Mueller finds he did. Trump claimed he never asked Comey to let the 'Michael Flynn matter go'. Mueller finds he did. Trump claimed he never pushed the White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller. Mueller finds he did. Trump even lied about inviting Comey to dinner, claiming falsely, in public, that Comey requested it. Trump enlists others to lie. He lies to his staff.

Trump treats his subordinates horribly. He hides things from them. He yells at them. He orders them to carry out illegal acts.

How many of Trump's followers or those who might otherwise be tempted to vote for him in 2020 will recoil?

He acts like a thug. He regrets his lawyers are not as good at protecting him as was his early mentor Roy Cohn -- a mob lawyer. When reports surface about the now infamous Trump Tower meeting of June 2016, Trump directs the cover-up.

Trump is unprincipled. The few people in the White House and the cabinet who stand up to him, according to Mueller -- threatening to resign rather than carry out his illegal orders -- are now gone. They resigned or were fired.

This is a portrait of a morally bankrupt man."
