MSNBC’s Chris Matthews speculated that President Donald Trump could be faced with deciding whether to resign in the coming weeks as special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation heats up
He made his comments Monday evening on his show, “Hardball With Chris Matthews.”
“Let me finish tonight with how the Mueller investigation could end,” Matthews said. “Given the toughness Bob Mueller is showing, it looks like he would have no hesitation indicting anyone he finds guilty in his path. Look at his treatment of Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and all the rest.
“That's unless you're ready to turn states evidence against the king pin Donald Trump. Which brings us to a pair of Mueller subjects who lack that option. Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump. The president's children stand right in the line of Mueller's investigative progress. They stand as the next dominoes to fall.
“They can hardly testify against their father, which brings the country to the reckoning. If the prosecutor will not be stopped and the kids will not fall to him, we see the president's adult children heading to prison.”
Matthews questioned whether Trump would decide to step down to get his children out of hot water.
“That would mean giving up the presidency for acquittals all around, not just for himself, but for his kids,” he said.
“The reckoning in the American saga, this one may come down to the solution faced by prosecutors and Richard Nixon's twice chosen vice-president (Spiro Agnew). Leverage the office while you still have it.
