Now what? In the Matter of Donald John Trump.

And because everyone asks me..

1. No one sane & savvy I know thinks DJT will be impeached.

2. The upshot? Far more people in all camps think he's an asshole. That's it.

3. Also: No one sane & savvy thinks he's dumb. Everyone thinks he's a scrapper. He won't step down unless he's bored. That won't happen.

4. The only long-term narrative against Trump I can see is that he's nuts. Bonkers. Not enough--we've had a few Wild Man presidents. E.g. Teddy R was way crazy. "He's crazy" won't remove him from office but will hurt him if it sticks. Like in 2020.

5. Mueller is a class act and honest--much better human than Ken Starr (or Comey)--and in any event will drive this away from impeachment because it's bad for the country.

6. The country will more than ever continue to divide into 2 overall camps. Hair on fire Dems vs. fed-up hold their noses GOP folks. People will even talk more about civil war. Which also won't happen.
