The case can already be made that Trump obstructed justice when he fired James Comey and when, according to several reports, he tried to persuade people in the intelligence community to tell the media there’s no collusion with Russia. As we know, obstruction of justice was the first of several charges leading to Nixon’s impeachment.
Anyone who pays attention knew a Friday morning twitter tantrum was imminent. For while Trump prides himself for his ability to use the element of surprise, there are two things for which he is so predictable it must sting his fragile ego. Trump will obsess over media coverage of him and when the coverage isn’t favorable he’ll tweet that it’s fake news. In Trumpland, the emperor decides what is true and what isn’t. Anything that makes Trump look good is “true” anything that shows him how he really is, is not.
