It's so obvious Trump didn't even write any of it, because it contains complete sentences.

It has been alleged that Trump was at least peripherally engaged with money laundering for some Russian gangsters:

If Mueller's people can really dig into this and prove even some of it, Trump is going to be in DEEP ****.

Of course he's been money laundering. There were stories about him and the Russian mob long before he ever ran for president. He was a self-proclaimed billionaire who couldn't get a loan. Both his sons, prior to Trump running for president claimed all their money came from Russia. Russians were running illegal card games one floor below Trump in Trump Tower. Is it any wonder Trump wouldn't release his tax returns?

It also appears Trump has been witness tampering with House testimony, instructing Bannon and Lewandowski to not answer questions. Unless Trump invokes executive privilege, he can't do that without obstructing justice (again.)

Not to mention all of the Stormy Weather that's been hitting the WH.

Depending on how much he's been compromised, then, it is possible that the Russians could cajole him into doing something that directly compromises the national security of the United States. If he did so, that would be state treason.

This Presidency is starting to appear somewhat Nixonesque to me. If all this is actually the case, then he needs to be removed.

If he were impeached and was then charged with high crimes, I wonder if he would flee to Russia? That would be strange - Trump tweeting outrages from Moscow, probably living it up in the Metropole and consorting with high-end hookers, telling his supporters how he was framed and to get ready for a "revolution".

Even if its true that hes in debt to the Russians and yadda yadda, why would they want him in Russia and offer him some sort of safe space for him? Hes an awful businessman, not to mention a complete idiot, and most likely wont have any of his own money.. why would the Russians want to host that guy? Unless to continue to squeeze him dry and use him as a pawn like hes so used to being played due to his limited grasp on reality and intelligence.

Well, they let Snowden in to embarrass the USA. And Trump probably has gangster friends that will ease the way for him. AND it would embarrass the USA even further - having a corrupt ex-President living in Moscow, out of reach of the US authorities? What fun for the Russian propaganda apparatus.

Trump probably has a bunch of offshore money squirreled away he can access to live on in comfort as well, so he will be welcomed, as a "paying guest".
