Trump - The Biggest Scandal in US History?

From hush payments to adult film stars to secret meetings with Russians to overriding security clearances to his kids and in-laws, Trump has superpassed any president is history for scandals, and is the third president in history to have scandals involving interactions with foreign powers - and this is as bad as Reagan's treason in Iran-Contra or Nixon's treason colluding with the South Vietnamese to extend that war for another 8 years.

The Iran-Contra prosecutions, of course, were shut down by William Barr recommending GHW Bush pardon everybody involved, just like the Nixon prosecutions were killed off by President Ford pardoning Nixon unconditionally.

Regardless of the continuing explosion of details of the Trump Crime Family's violations of law, ethics, and political norms, this is already well past the point where we must impeach and prosecute him to prevent other grifters, con men and wannabe traitors like him, Nixon, or Reagan from running for the White House.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
