Trump, Black Folks and the Russian Investigation

David L. Horne, PH.D. | 6/15/2017, midnight

Here’s a bold prediction: Jeff Sessions will be forced to resign as Attorney General before the end of 2017 because he lied under oath. Mr. Trump will, like former President Nixon, be forced out of office sometime next year for colluding with Russian spies regarding the 2016 election, and obstructing justice. Mr. Flynn and Mr. Manafort will go to federal prison. And Mr. Trump may, in fact, try to fire Mr. Mueller, who is now investigating Mr. Trump, but, if he does, he will be stopped by the federal courts, as the regulations which created Mr. Mueller’s Independent Counsel position, only allow the Attorney General (or, in this case, the Deputy Attorney General) to fire Mr. Mueller, and Mr. Rosenstein, the man who hired Mr. Mueller, recently said he was having none of it (in terms of firing Mr. Mueller).

I was right about the Warriors in five. Let’s see whether I still have the hot hand.
