James Clapper Questions Trump’s Fitness

Rachel Chason – The Washington Post:

“I really question his ability to be — his fitness to be — in this office,” Clapper told CNN’s Don Lemon early Wednesday morning. “I also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for it — maybe he is looking for a way out.”

I’ve wondered about Trump’s mindset since he won election. It must feel terrific to win the highest office, but the day after brings with it the realization that there’s nothing but four years of hard work ahead. That’s a huge comedown for someone who, clearly, has never held policy ideas for American governance. Donald Trump has never been the politically capable, governing type.

So my speculation runs, as does Clapper’s, to how Trump would look to extricate himself from the office he won, or if he’d be removed by others. It looks like a combination of both: if he acts reckless enough he might end up being removed under amendment 25, article 4 of the Constitution of the United States.

He’d still have to answer for anything Bob Mueller uncovers in Trump’s pre-inauguration activities. There’s a rich, deep trove there.
