April 23rd is the anniversary of both the birth and death of William Shakespeare, so it seems fitting at this time to reference him, particularly as he wrote with such penetrating insight into human shortcomings. Since no person I ever heard of outside a play by Shakespeare has more faults and foibles than Donald Trump, I begin with this from the Bard’s own Pericles: “Few love to hear the sins they love to act.” And Donald Trump is certainly no exception.

Indeed, no one hates to have his crimes held up to the light more than Donald Trump, and Donald Trump is angry (as ever), this time because he’s going to be impeached precisely for those sins he loves to act. Just when he was beginning to enjoy the denouement of the Mueller investigation, he has discovered, to his astonished displeasure, that momentum in a gathering tempest in the House of Representatives will, in all likelihood, end in the drafting of articles of his impeachment.



It is both tragedy and comedy of Shakespearean proportions, a “president” who is at once an Iago and a Falstaff. Welcome to act IV of the Trump presidency. It is an end of his own doing and, try to blame others though he will, Trump has no one to blame but himself, never forgetting that it’s “an admirable evasion of whoremaster man, to lay his goatish disposition to the charge of a star.”



As Trump disingenuously put it in a Monday morning tweet, “Only high crimes and misdemeanors can lead to impeachment. There were no crimes by me (No Collusion, No Obstruction), so you can’t impeach.” Ah, but there was collusion and there was obstruction. Had he bothered to read it, Trump would find no “comfortable words” in the Mueller Report.



Like Richard III, Trump employs counterfeit virtue to draw some people to him. Others look to this pale, latter day Richard as a means to their own rise. Still others are simply cowards, afraid to speak their own truth to Trump’s stolen power. Whatever their rationale, Trump, like Richard, remains a tyrant, and “Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”


In the final analysis the Trump presidency and the American nightmare it has spawned will end, either in impeachment and removal, or Trump’s defeat in the 2020 election. We who have vigilantly borne the indignity of this loathsome, odious King Lear have, at least, earned the right to anticipate that blessed day when this “most notable coward, an infinite and endless liar, an hourly promise breaker, the owner of no one good quality” and his pirate ship of hooligans each have “melted into air, into thin air.” We are, after all, the stuff that dreams are made on.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump goes bananas after House Judiciary Committee subpoenas Don McGahn

Now that the redacted Mueller report has been released, House Democrats are taking the logical next step: they’re bringing in th key cooperators to publicly testify about the Trump campaign’s collusion and Donald Trump’s several acts of obstruction of justice. Suffice it to say that Donald Trump isn’t exactly taking the news well.


House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler just subpoenaed former White House Counsel Don McGahn, who – according to the Mueller report – had a front row seat to Donald Trump’s obstruction of justice antics and repeatedly tried to put a stop to it. As explained earlier, McGahn is likely to fully cooperate, and the subpoena gives him cover when it comes to any legal attempts Trump might make at interfering with his testimony. It turns out Trump really doesn’t want people to hear what McGahn has to say.



As the subpoena news was breaking, Donald Trump posted this tweet: “Isn’t it amazing that the people who were closest to me, by far, and knew the Campaign better than anyone, were never even called to testify before Mueller. The reason is that the 18 Angry Democrats knew they would all say ‘NO COLLUSION’ and only very good things!”



Notably, Donald Trump doesn’t even bother to spell out who these people supposedly are. We’re not aware of anyone in Donald Trump’s inner circle who was hoping to be interviewed by Robert Mueller but didn’t get the opportunity. Surely those people would be speaking up right now if they existed. But this gives away the strategy that Trump is now trying out when it comes to upcoming congressional hearings.


Even as the likes of Don McGahn, Hope Hicks, and Steve Bannon are called to publicly testify before the television cameras about Donald Trump’s obstruction of justice antics, Trump is going to say something along the lines of ‘Don’t listen to my own handpicked White House Counsel, White House Communications Director, or White House Chief Strategist. The important witnesses are some other people out there who can vouch for me, even though I’m not going to tell you their names.’
