In a sober moment, even The Donald might admit he had it coming, though his tweet Thursday morning calling the move part of a "witch hunt" against him suggests that he still sees himself as untouchable. In not yet four months as President, Trump has tested the limits of every institution that exists to prevent the chief executive of the United States from becoming a despot. Congress responded with investigations of his connections to Russia. The naming of the special prosecutor, who will have enormous investigative power, was precipitated by Trump's dismissal of James Comey and the revelation that he allegedly asked the FBI director to drop his probe of the Trump campaign's possible links to Russia.


As Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed a special counsel to investigate the President and his associates, he imposed on Donald Trump something he has spent a lifetime avoiding -- accountability.

In a sober moment, even The Donald might admit he had it coming, though his tweet Thursday morning calling the move part of a "witch hunt" against him suggests that he still sees himself as untouchable.

In not yet four months as President, Trump has tested the limits of every institution that exists to prevent the chief executive of the United States from becoming a despot.

Congress responded with investigations of his connections to Russia. The courts rejected his unconstitutional bans on Muslim visitors. And the press has alerted the world to his countless violations of common sense and decency.

He nevertheless has thus far refused to do the job he was elected to do, preferring instead to tweet, act with reckless abandon and play a great deal of golf.







The naming of the special prosecutor, who will have enormous investigative power, was precipitated by Trump's dismissal of James Comey and the revelation that he allegedly asked the FBI director to drop his probe of the Trump campaign's possible links to Russia.

Although these two explosive stories broke within the space of a couple of days, in that same period we also heard that when the President recently entertained the Russian foreign minister and ambassador, he allegedly divulged highest-level secrets about terror threats, which were supplied by foreign partners who expected them to be protected.

Trump's lifelong practice of exploiting others and shirking responsibility guaranteed that he would indulge in the reckless behavior that has brought him, and the world, to this crisis point.

This is a man who has spent decades wounding others -- and himself -- at an astonishing rate and has responded to the various wreckages with a combination of denial and defensiveness. These classic bully characteristics have allowed him to avoid most of the repercussions of his behavior.

Before he became a national political figure, most Americans were unaware of the fact that Trump's businesses had lost at least $1 billion and perhaps as much as $6 billion during a business career he claimed was a brilliant success.

The money was supplied by investors and, since it was filtered through corporation, Trump was never held personally accountable.

Republicans are apparently becoming alarmed by Mr Trump?s actions in office and are lining up Mr Pence as a possible replacement.

?If what [is] reported is true, Pence is probably rehearsing,? a House Republican, who asked not to be named, told Politico.

?It?s just like Nixon. From the standpoint that it?s never the underlying issue, it is always the cover-up.?

Mr Pence?s top members of staff have spent years working in American politics and are familiar with legislative process. The Vice President himself has extensive experience in public service and is viewed as a source of stability by Republicans.

?I find it unlikely that Trump is going anywhere,? a Republican lobbyist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said.

?That being said, Pence is well-liked on the Hill, fairly predictable, and doesn't stir up much unnecessary drama.?
