Donald Trump’s smash-and-grab endgame

When people realize that their time in power is coming to an end, it’s common that they reach out to grab anything that they can. As we’ve documented, the “smash and grab” technique is often utilized by those who realize the authorities are coming for them. It should be no surprise to anyone that Donald Trump understands his time in power is very limited. Special Counsel Robert Muller has been working for nearly a year to identify all of Trump’s crimes.

One aspect of Trump’s certain demise can be attributed to one of his former fans. Republican strategist Alex Castellanos, who worked for candidates including Bob Dole, George W. Bush, Jeb Bush, and Mitt Romney, has recently joined the group of Republicans vocally speaking out against Trump. Castellanos recently said that Trump was up against a coming storm, while also stating his legitimate fear that, “it’s hard to believe then that when Republicans lose the House in 2018, maybe by 40 or 50 seats, that House is not going to impeach him.”

For every person you might be able to convince of the treasonous actions of Donald Trump, there are at least four others who refuse to believe the facts. That’s not our goal. To best advance to current narrative, it’s important to use facts and data. If that doesn’t change the “smash and grab” mindset, perhaps nothing will, but it’s important to remember that whoever is in power, they must follow the rule of law. When that stops happening, the people have the right to get upset. It appears due time for us to be able to appreciate such laws while avoiding “smash and grab.” Mueller can certainly appreciate that fact.
