    If Trump was Nixon what would he have done? I think this is an important exercise to see what is in store for the country. I don't know enough about government to say anything other than Trump wouldn't have resigned. His world ends with him so he would have caused a mess.

    Chet, no Trump is not Nixon; his "character" is quite different. He wants to "win" at ALL cost. He will use every dirty "street" trick he can find. He does not care; like he said "I can shoot someone in Time Square and they still will vote for me"

    Due to the fact as with the "gun" issue, is that our other "leaders" are a bunch of "sissy's"; no one dares to stand up to the guy. Until now he has broken all the rules and laws, like not providing tax returns, getting his whole family into high positions, did not dispose of his own business, breaks all the security rules, invites Russians and spill secrets to them, asks "loyalty" to persons who are supposed to work independent, like the FBI, Judicial etc. and so on and on.

    And no one blinks.

    He will not respond other than pardoning himself and his gang. He has been operating in the too big and rich to listen style for quite some time. I can see him simply pardoning everybody .

    Yes Chet, that may be the case; people may be upset when "pardons" happens (except his "base") and things will continue on as usual, as with "school" shootings. As Jared says only "voting" may get the idiots out; but we have to wait until 2020 when such hopefully can happen. (but the "electoral college" may throw a wrench in it) However in the meantime the "damage" to our Democracy continues. So there may be more surprises to come in the meantime.

    Hillary had bad information.

    Trump apparently capitalized on information while Hillary thought those states were solidly hers. He went to Michigan and Wisconsin the week before the election.

    I think under the same circumstances, trump would have destroyed the tapes. Destroying the tapes would have forced an impeachment. Trump would never ever admit he did anything wrong, even if he was impeached or resigned. He would declare it a conspiracy.

    From now until trump dies, he will never admit he has made a mistake, except maybe he trusted the wrong people who turned on him by telling the truth. Even if there are smoking guns (ie video\audio), he will say it was faked using a identical double (ie Plastic surgery) and special effects. And there will be many followers who go to their graves believing every single word he has ever said... As did the horse "Boxer" in George Orwell's Animal Farm.
