Bobbitt communicated the dire reality of Trump’s political conundrum stating, “Resignation, as remote as it seems right now, might well be a choice the President would make to save his children from prison, and himself from future prosecution.”
Trump’s departure from his post as U.S. President would not catch political pundits off guard. Jason Horowitz of the New York Times wrote about Trump resigning from the executive office in July of 2016. Horowitz stated, “Now he is refusing to rule out an even more dramatic departure, one that would let him avoid the grueling job of governing, return to his business and enjoy his now-permanent status as a news media celebrity.”
U.S. Vice President Michael “Mike” Pence maintains he had no knowledge of any Russian meetings. Pence’s spokesman Marc Lotter delivered a statement for Pence addressing the Kushner and Trump Jr. Russian revelation stating, “He is also not focused on stories about the campaign — especially those pertaining to the time before he joined the campaign.”
Pence formed his own political action committee (PAC) in May of 2017, called the Great America Committee. Pence has dedicated significant amounts of time raising money for his PAC, signaling he plans to run for President in 2020. Whether he is already the incumbent U.S. president in 2020 due to a Trump resignation or impeachment remains to be seen.
Bobbitt is a nephew of former U.S. President, Lyndon B. Johnson. Johnson became the president after the shocking assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963. Bobbitt has been a special political advisor to each U.S. President starting with his uncle, President Johnson. The only exceptions being George W. Bush, Richard Nixon, and Donald Trump.
Bobbitt’s Russian allegation commentary appears to be an attempt on his behalf to counsel President Trump with special political advisory from a far.
