Dear Mr. Trump,
You never learn. Firing McCabe doesn’t help you, notwithstanding all the tweets. Firing McCabe just makes you look paranoid and vindictive. It makes you look afraid of the findings of the Mueller investigation. It makes you look like the bully you really are.
And why would you be afraid, Sir, if you had nothing to hide? We will learn in time – the sooner the better – what you and your companies in treason have done. Who needs the salacious details reported in the “dossier,” most of which anyway has already been proven true? We will in due course discover the full extent of the transactions in Russia of the so-called Trump Organization. We will learn why you are so loath to criticize Putin. We will learn why you refuse to release your tax returns. We will see every crime, every lie, every fraud that Mueller’s non-partisan investigation turns up. We will see how you obstructed justice and continue to do so.
The witnesses against you are lining up, eager to testify – in large part because you have demeaned their integrity in public. You call McCabe’s contemporaneous notes of your conversations “fake”? His sworn and detailed testimony won’t be fake, Sir. You call Comey’s contemporaneous notes of your conversations “fake”? His sworn and detailed testimony won’t be fake, Sir. They are no more “fake” than the Nixon tapes that forced him to resign in disgrace.
You can lie all you want, Sir. You can lie until you’re blue in the face, creating a nice orange/blue pattern. Your die-hard supporters will believe any lie, but the majority of Americans already know you’re mendacious, and more and more are learning this every day. Your Republican supporters in Congress will ultimately have no recourse but to turn you out of office, and then you can be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Please take my advice, Sir, and resign. It will save us all a lot of trouble.
Very truly yours,
Bruce J. Berger
