While we’ve long known that President Donald Trump has numerous connections to Russia, including the ones we’ve learned about via court documents and witnesses who have spoken on the matter, it’s now clear that the entire Trump crime family is on the verge of being indicted and prosecuted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Writer and professor Seth Abramson has been following the Russia investigation since it began and has just published a fascinating new book entitled Proof of Collusion: How Donald Trump Betrayed America. Abramson recently sat down with Dean Obeidallah of Salon and explained exactly how Mueller and prosecutors with the Southern District of New York will take down the Trump crime family:
“If you were told that Vladimir Putin’s government and those associated with him offered to help Trump win the 2016 election, you might find it challenging to believe that happened or that Trump would knowingly accept their help. But what if all America knew that Trump had been cultivating connections with the Russians since the late 1980s, and that they had been cultivating him as an ally, and possibly even as an asset, for decades? The allegations suddenly go far from far-fetched to very believable.”
Abramson also lays out exactly how Russia gained control over Trump and the Trump Organization:
“The book also connects the dots on how Trump sought and apparently received funding from Russian banks tied to the Kremlin in the late 1990s and 2000s, when American banks would no longer lend him money. Ivanka Trump famously got a special private tour of Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin office in 2006, conducted by Trump’s Russian-born ally Felix Sater. She even sat in Putin’s chair.”
Yes, this all means that the president, Don Jr., Eric, Ivanka, and Jared Kushner are going to be charged with numerous crimes, and very soon.
Now the question everyone wants an answer to: When does this all happen? Abramson could not have been clearer on that:
“We should expect that impeachment proceedings will begin against Donald Trump at some point during 2019. We expect impeachment would pass once we have all the evidence that Robert Mueller has.”
But there’s no way a GOP-controlled Senate would ever vote to impeach Trump, you may be saying. Again, Abramson had a startling prediction:
“The question would be whether 67 senators would vote to convict. If it’s looking like that’s going to happen, there’s a lot of speculation that Donald Trump would attempt to negotiate his resignation, in exchange for some sort of immunity from prosecution for him and his children. That would be an unprecedented maneuver by federal prosecutors, so I don’t even know if that’s possible.”
Donald Trump and this three oldest children are going down. And it’s going to happen very soon. The fat lady is about to start singing.
