The Easy Way Out

It took the Supreme Court and the House voting out articles of impeachment to get Nixon to fess up to his high crimes and misdemeanors, and no one was ever truly convinced that Bill Clinton did anything more than what Newt Gingrich and apparently half of the GOP leadership was doing in 1998 to get him to the bar, but it still took a grand jury and a cringe-worthy deposition on tape to get him to acknowledge his mistakes.

For Trump all it takes is a press pool on the South Lawn of the White House to get him to brag about committing impeachable acts.  Who needs a grand jury or subpoena when there’s a gaggle of reporters around?
