I joined Alexis Conran and former MP Rob Wilson on talkRADIO on Saturday for our weekly journey across TrumpLand, including a look at Donald Trump’s problems with the Russia investigation and with officials who think he is not fit to be President.
We start with the confirmation that Trump’s long-time former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen is cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia inquiry.
Later we look at the report that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein tried to recruit Cabinet members such as his boss Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Security John Kelly to invoke the 25th Amendment, removing a President who is incapable of carrying out his duties.
The motive? Trump-Russia: specifically, Trump’s dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, to curb the Russia inquiry, and his boast to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrovthat he had gotten rid of the “crazy…nut job”.
In between the two topics, we look at the state of play of November’s Congressional elections.
And we end with a summary of the turmoil and politics around the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid a sexual assault allegation.
Quizzed by Rob Wilson that I seem to be taking pleasure in all these developments, I respond:
When looking tragedy in the face, you can do one of two things.
You can hide under the bed and cry, or you can turn it into black comedy.
