Will the FL investigation of Bondi $25,000 bribe and the NY investigation of the Trump foundation

create a cause to remove Trump from office? Both investigations seem to be troubling Trump, since he tried to shut down his Foundation. And Rick Scott's move to appoint a new prosecutor in the Florida case could not have been encouraging to him.

Florida prosecutor will investigate complaint against Attorney General Pam Bondi

Gov. Rick Scott has assigned a complaint filed against Attorney General Pam Bondi to a prosecutor in Southwest Florida.

The complaint stems from scrutiny this year over a $25,000 campaign contribution Bondi received from President-elect Donald Trump in 2013. Bondi asked for the donation around the same time her office was being asked about a New York investigation of alleged fraud at Trump University.

A Massachusetts attorney filed numerous complaints against Bondi, including one that asked State Attorney Mark Ober to investigate Trump's donation.

Ober asked Scott in September to appoint a different prosecutor because Bondi used to work for him.

6. How does that always work out?

Why do Dem presidents always have to deal with a Republican partisan DOJ. while Republican presidents can always count on them siding with them?

3. i dont see him getting in deep doodoo for anything he did out of office.

i suspect it will take him about 10 minutes to commit an impeachable offense, tho, so not to worry.

srsly, it will be f'ing w the mic that will get him in trouble. the cia will not be on his side, and that will make it damn hard to get away w anything.
all he has to do is gore a couple of thugs oxen, and it will be done.

4. Unlikely and once he is sworn in on 1/20/2017, nothing short of impeachment can remove him

 

from office and I don't see Congress doing that.

7. Republicans will have to remove him.

The nuclear codes cannot reside at the whim a madman. When the time was right Agnew was convinced to resign over old tax evasion issues will Trump follow a similar path?

9. Sure. But Trump could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and the Rethugs would still not impeach.

Though if he insists on blowing raspberries at the CIA, we might have a President Pence faster than you can say Lee Harvey Oswald (God help us all).

12. Agnew was not shamed he was looking at a jail cell.

That became clear years later he was shown two doors.
