During a public press conference with the president of Columbia President Donald Trump was asked directly by a reporter whether he asked former FBI Director James Comey to stop the Michael Flynn Russian investigation.
Trump, rather than avoiding the question or simply not replying, chose to throw out the verbal rope that just might be fashioned into the noose of his presidency.
He denied, denied, denied.
Or, as many in these United States of America have come to learn over the many months of these debasing Years of Trump: He lied, lied, lied.
Just like President Nixon did in 1973.
And Nixon, less than 1 year later, caught up in a web of lies and obfuscations and massive amounts of facts showing President Nixon was very much a criminal, he was forced to resign before being impeached.
It seems history is repeating itself.
Especially when the office of the President of the United States of America is being occupied by someone who never reads books, including history books.
