Fake news websites like Palmer Report and others in their orbit have been predicting that the fall of Donald Trump is coming any day now. Relying on speculation, rumors on Twitter, and outright fabrications – the for-profit rumor mill has been running in overdrive since the election.
These individuals aren’t seeking to report facts. Instead, they are pumping out their own ideas on how Trump will fall, and passing it off as real news. From time to time, they get a story partially right. Once that happens, they proudly announce they were the first to report it. It’s the blogging version of being a broken clock that’s right twice a day, but only because they threw enough shit at the cuckoo clock for days and weeks on end.
The mountain of evidence against Trump and his cohorts continues to build. Former FBI director Robert Mueller is now investigating Trump’s business dealings, going beyond just looking into collusion between his campaign and Russia.
The spokesman for his legal team has resigned suddenly, and The Donald has been asking about his ability to pardon people in his administration.
President Trump has asked advisers about “his power to pardon aides, family members and even himself in connection with” the Russia probe, the Washington Post reports citing a source familiar with the discussions. Another source said Trump’s lawyers were “discussing pardoning powers among themselves.”
Per several aides, Trump’s lawyers are “are actively compiling a list of [special counsel Robert] Mueller’s alleged potential conflicts of interest, which they say could serve as a way to stymie his work.”
“The president is also irritated by the notion that Mueller’s probe could reach into his and his family’s finances.”
Trump “has told aides he was especially disturbed after learning Mueller would be able to access several years of his tax returns.” (Axios)
The flood of scandals is spilling over the dam, and it shouldn’t be much longer until indictments are handed down and more resignations come. Sean Spicer has resigned, Bannon is nowhere to be found, and Mrs. Conway is still desperately defending Trump on Twitter.

Keep looking for the truth, and keep resisting. This whole thing is going to come tumbling down sooner than later. I’d suggest buying plenty of popcorn, because the unfolding drama will be fascinating to watch.
