I wrote this at the start of the new year after having thought about it for months. It just seemed like it was time for the second act…especially since I have a one-dollar bet going with a good friend on how this turns out. I think my scenario is most likely. His view is that nothing will happen and 2020 will be a replay of Trump’s 2016 circus.
I’m encountering more conversations all of which focus on how and when Mr. Trump will be booted out of the White House. Much of this may just be wishful thinking but at this stage of the game thinking not necessarily tethered to some set of twisted “facts” is welcome.
Donald Trump will resign the presidency before the end of 2019 or sooner.
Why? Because he’s going to be made an offer he can’t refuse.
The deal will go down as the gathering storm surrounding Mr. Trump takes shape.
The multiple investigations are all pointing in one direction. Mr. Trump, his business interests and his children will all be on the table. The various authorities, both state and federal, will eventually come together to carve out a simple “plea bargain.” Criminal charges pending against Mr. Trump and his children will go away and, in exchange, he will resign the presidency.
Watch for it.
