There is no mincing words: Donald Trump is damaged, and the United States never had damaged like this in the White House.
No Rose Mary Woods erasing magnetic tape, here. No Roy Cohn's in the shadows. Nor is it factually established Donald Trump traded sex with girls in Moscow and sold his soul to Russia (worst deal in history!), but it is clear that if Trump is sworn into the office of the president, no act of his administration with respect to foreign policy can be trusted.
Inevitably, the truth about Trump and Russia will come out -- whether released by Russia or by an intelligence agency that cannot abide a destabilized United States. Will the truth about Trump come out before or after he damages the national interest? One could argue, whatever the outcome, Donald Trump already damaged the national interest.
Now it is clear that the mainstream media and the American public missed the critical importance of published reports before the election of secret interactions between Trump surrogates and Russia. Moreover, it is now clear that FBI Director Comey's choice to reveal about Hillary Clinton emails while holding back from disclosing on Trump was astounding.
Today, even US intelligence agencies are positioned -- like J. Edgar Hoover's FBI -- to blackmail Trump.
A grand jury investigation should be called before Trump is inaugurated because after inauguration, Trump will claim executive privilege. So it is either a grand jury now, or, the massive overhang of impeachment hearings from Trump's first day in office.
The inauguration of the next president of the United States should be postponed, and the executive branch placed under caretaker supervision by Congress.
