“I am going to give a major speech on — probably Monday of next week [June 13] — and we’re going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons,” Trump said. “I think you’re going to find it very informative, and very, very interesting.”And also, what were the circumstances that led you not to follow through on that promise? Was it purely coincidence that that the June 9 meeting, which produced no results, just happened to take place between when you promised a "major speech" about the Clintons and when you failed to follow through on that promise? If it wasn't the Tower meeting that led to all that, what was it?
I can't help but marvel at the irony that Trump, the supposed master negotiator, may be brought down by the incredibly stupid mistake of promising something before he was sure he could deliver it. If he hadn't done that, he might have been able to maintain plausible deniability. Sometimes you have to take risks, but the Second Rule of Business is that you should only take risks when you have to. Trump didn't have to. He could have waited two days until he knew if the meeting was going to be fruitful or not. But Trump has the patience of a six-year-old, and so he took this risk gratuitously and recklessly simply because he felt like it, and thus gave up plausible deniability. What a maroon.
In other news, some Republicans are starting to call for Trump's impeachment.
