Bill Weld calls on Trump to resign, calling him a 'one-man crime wave'

Source: Boston Globe

GOP presidential candidate Bill Weld is calling on President Trump to resign from office in the wake of Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference and obstruction of justice, calling him “a one-man crime wave.”

Writing in the conservative website The Bulwark, Weld, the former Massachusetts governor, argues that the Mueller report exposed a serious credibility problem for Trump.

“How can a president function if he instinctively lies to not only the public but to his own staff? There is one essential truth that leaps from the pages of the Mueller report: No one can trust Donald Trump,” he writes.

Weld covers many of the Mueller report’s findings to bolster his argument: There is evidence suggesting Trump at least attempted to obstruct justice, several of the president’s associates have been convicted of crimes, and the redacted referrals to other prosecutors suggest there’s more to be uncovered.

6. So, why aren't Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin or Larry Page calling for his resignation?

They are owners of Google and have enough wealth to be considered the top 0.7%. Why haven't they weighed in to get this fool Trump out of the presidency?

They must like him or at least benefit from his actions.

8. Trump can't resign, of course,

since as a private citizen he will be liable to be prosecuted for any crimes he committed, including the many counts of obstruction in the Mueller report. One wonders if he will ever leave the WH voluntarily, even if he loses in 2020...

17. He could bank on a first pardon from Pence. That happens unless Pence is properly soiled.

And there's not much question he and Sessions were in it from the start.

It's a clumsy piece of homework, getting him to step down, but unless somebody does it first we're screwed.

10. I don't care what party he belongs to. If he is calling for Trump's resignation it's okay by me.

What's the harm? People bitch when Republicans do not come out against Trump and then some also bitch when someone does. I don't get it.

11. The problem with what he is saying is that

Trump is not a one man crime wave, he has a lot of accomplices, Mitch McConnell, Devon Nunes and Trump's entire cabinet for a start.

Trump GOP Challenger: 'If Donald Trump is an American patriot, he should resign'

Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld called on President Donald Trump to resign Wednesday, writing in an op-ed that the country would be "better served with a President Mike Pence."

"If Donald Trump is an American patriot, he should resign from office," Weld, the only announced Republican primary challenger to the President, wrote in an op-ed published in The Bulwark, an online platform that publishes conservative commentary.

He added: "Trump's rampant dishonesty and paranoia render him incapable of serving as president. For once, he should put the good of the United States ahead of his own ego and resign."

Weld, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts, officially announced his primary challenge to Trump earlier this month, making him the President's only Republican opponent so far in the 2020 election. In 2016, Weld was the vice presidential nominee on the Libertarian Party ticket with former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson. He previously served two terms as the governor of Massachusetts in the early 1990s.
