Ken Starr, the man who served as the Special Counsel who headed the investigation into President Bill Clinton, an inquiry that later led to impeachment proceedings, says that Donald Trump may have committed an impeachable offense if it’s proven he lied to the American people.
The New York Times recently reported a story concerning a heated conversation Trump allegedly had with White House Counsel Don McGahan, in which Trump was said to have been on the verge of firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller from the investigation looking into possible collusion between Russia and his 2016 presidential campaign. The Times report claimed that Trump decided to back off from firing Mueller only after McGahan threatened to resign.
In response, when asked by reporters, Trump dismissively called the report “fake news,” implying that the Times could not be trusted to tell the truth.
On Sunday, when ABC’s Martha Raddatz asked Starr if Trudenialenail could be grounds for impeachment, the former Special Counsel made it clear that should it be proven Trump lied to the American people about the Times report being “fake news,” impeachment could be a genuine possibility.
“I think lying to the American people is a serious issue that has to be explored. I take lying to the American people very, very seriously, so absolutely,” Starr told ABC’s “This Week,” when asked if Trump lying about the report would be grounds for impeachment.
Would it not be ironic that of all the vast lies Trump has told throughout his candidacy and presidency, that what could easily be considered his smallest untruth could be turn out to be the feather that trips and leads to the downfall of the so-called “stable genius?”
Meanwhile, Robert Mueller sits in his office with a quiet smile, carefully taking notes.
Soon, you bloated orange bitch. Very soon.
