On May 19, 1977 - In the 3rd of 4 interviews with David Frost, Nixon remarked: Well, when the president does it, that means it is not illegal. This remark was made within the context of national security but it is disturbing nonetheless.
Donald Trump has acted like this ALL ALONG --- ever since assuming office. Nixon, at least, confined it to a narrowly-defined scope - such as National Security.
Nixon also said that in any event, the country couldn't afford having the president being in the dock of the United States Senate for six months. So, there can never be an impeachment in the future in this country without a president voluntarily impeaching himself. I have impeached myself. That speaks for itself.
To which DAVID FROST inquired: How do you mean "I have impeached myself"?
To which NIXON replied: By RESIGNING. That was a voluntary impeachment.
So, there you have it, the blue print for Donald Trump.
All he needs to do, to avoid "actual" impeachment - is to just RESIGN --- thereby impeaching HIMSELF - and thereby saving the House of Representatives the trouble of having to do so.
And also spare the country of having an acting president sitting in the dock of the United States Senate for 6-months - something that probably would not be feasible for a major world power such as the United States.l
Case solved. We can all go home now!
Just kidding! Knowing Trump, it'll be either of two scenarios --- feet first, or head first!
