Will Trump Resign In 2019 To Spare His Family?

Donald Trump Will Resign the Presidency in 2019 in Exchange for Immunity for Him and His Family, Former Bush Adviser Says

 

 Alan J. Steinberg—who served as an adviser to former President George W. Bush—wrote in an opinion piece published this week that he didn't believe President Donald Trump would be removed from office through impeachment.

Steinberg, a former Environmental Protection Agency regional administrator, said that he believed Trump would resign in 2019 in exchange for immunity. 

"Trump will not be removed from office by the constitutional impeachment and removal process," Steinberg wrote in The Star-Ledger. "Instead, the self-professed supreme dealmaker will use his presidency as a bargaining chip with federal and state authorities in 2019, agreeing to leave office in exchange for the relevant authorities not pursuing criminal charges against him, his children or the Trump Organization."

 

Steinberg noted in the piece that should the House of Representatives impeach Trump, 20 Republican senators would have to break with the president to remove him from office—and that seems very unlikely. Steinberg wrote that the many legal challenges facing Trump—the investigation from special counsel Robert Mueller, the probe from the Southern District of New York as well as inquiries from the attorney general of New York and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office—could lead him to leave the White House, especially as authorities close in on his family. 

 

Steinberg wrote for The Star-Ledger:

"Aside from all the legal nightmares facing Trump and his presidency, it appears virtually impossible for Trump to be reelected in 2020. The economy appears headed for a severe recession, as evidenced by the recent plunge in the stock market, which appears on pace for its worst December since the Great Depression.

There are only two years left in Trump’s presidential term. With his approval ratings in an abysmal state, and the forthcoming recession making it near impossible for Trump to stage a political recovery, it appears most likely that he will use the continuation of his presidency as a bargaining chip."

Steinberg is far from the only person who believes Trump will be out of office before his first term is up.

That sounds plausible. Wouldn't surprise me if it happens like this:

It may be one option open to Trump depending on the severity of the potential charges found against him after Muellers final report comes out. Alot of course too, will depend on how Republicans or should I say the Trump party, because the Republican party has been totally replaced by the Trump party, responds to the potential charges as well.

NO,  !!!!!!  he is too much of a self centered individual to understand that he has been a failure as a President.  He thinks he is great, he knows more about everything than anyone in existence. and his followers will not at least try to bring him down gently.

Trump can and will issue pardons to spare his family. If Trump ever resigns, you can bet we'll see his own Nixon/Ford-style pardon follow.

I still believe Jared, Ivanka or Donny Jr. will be indicted on something. Will they turn on Trump? 

I don't think Ivanka would turn on her father. Donny Jr. - even less likely. Jared? Hmmm...possibly, but I don't think so. 

It's possible Trump will want to stick around as long as he can (pardons). 

 

Michael Moore weighed in on this. When it comes to predicting, he has been right on some issues when many others have been wrong. 

This is what Michael Moore had to say...

 

Michael Moore: "Here's probably what won't happen because, especially New Yorkers know this, Trump got away with everything, for like 40 years. That streak shouldn't end this year, more than likely, because, I think, Trump has always been careful not to 'be in the room' when the crime is being committed. I think he's very canny. An evil genius."

 

Personally, I think Michael Moore is giving Trump more credit than I would..

I really don't think Trump will resign because resigning would be in his mind a "weak" thing to do.  I think 45 will continue to deny and lie and deflect until the bitter end.  And if he makes it through the next two years, I think by then he will have put some kinda way of escaping any future prosecutions be they State or federal.  Afterall, he is a consummate con.

I agree that he is a con artist.  If prosecuted and found guilty on Federal charges, Pence or another president will pardon him.  However, I think that after all the smoke clears, the state of New York will prosecute him.

The only deal Democrats should consider is for at least 20 Republicans in the Senate vote to convict after the House impeaches the gutless twit, then have Trump plead "nolo congtendere" to all the charges against him, and Pence pardon him.

 

If Yertle and the GOPers insist we put up with the infantile traitor past 1 June 2019, lil donny and his spawn go to trial the day he leaves office.

So ............ will Lil' Donnie use "the art of the deal" and the presidency to keep him and his family from being indicted and prosecuted?  I guess time will tell, but it does sound like something trump would try to do. He has proven he has no respect for the office of the presidency, or respect for America. Using the presidency as a bargaining chip to save his and some of his family member's rear-ends is far from something he wouldn't do, IMHO.
