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 seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
