Could investigating the origins of the 2016 corruption cabal, and the subsequent coup, cost President Trump the election? Could it be detrimental to his presidential health?
I don’t know but if Donald Trump were a creature of politics and a Washington player, he might have declined to investigate at the great risk to his own presidency. But that is just not the way Trump operates.
So he does want it investigated. I think we know most presidents would have repelled that notion out of fear that it could hurt them. And maybe, just maybe, they would have thought it would be a net plus for them to forego looking into it. (and a case could be made that it may be good not to have it investigated.) In other words, a personal gain.
I don’t think Trump gets enough credit for doing what is not attractive in spite of personal consequences. Now it definitely seems to be all negative and an uphill battle having his administration investigate corruption — even Biden’s corruption. In the interim it is all negative. Any positives only come in the results and we don’t know when those will be.
Yet according to the oath of office, any president would be obligated to investigate it. Remember Democrats kept claiming there were grounds to investigate Trump when there were none. Then they tried to create the justification for their witch hunt. That’s what Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation was all about — justifying itself.
Now if this investigation should somehow result in the loss of the 2020 election, it would still be worth it. Those are not chances most politicians want to take. That is why we had so many phony investigations, like Hillary’s, before that ended in nothing more than “there is no there there.” They were picture shows creating only the illusion of an investigation, even if the fix was in right from its conception.
Not getting justice was the polite way of saying but we investigated it. But none of them was ever so consequential as this seditious coup investigation. Trump is the one for it.
