Political Bankruptcy: Its Definition and Meaning as Ascribed to President Trump

Recent Legal Developments Make Room for Political Landscape Reflections



Most apropos considering how the political landscape has been undergoing reversals and changes, the term

“political bankruptcy” has arisen.

The aforementioned term did surface as it focused on President Trump, described by political analysts as “suddenly.”

Judging from published commentaries, the truth behind “political bankruptcy” has surfaced considerably on

Trump himself.

In reference to what is considered “likely,” the Constitution of the United States protects Trump from indictment.

As has been bruited about, Republican senators have been prone to form a defensive wall against a move of removal

of the 45th president by impeachment.

Yet, the media and similar news gathering agencies have not hesitated to comment on what might happen to the

current chief executive when fears of political bankruptcy have become notable as evidenced by courts of law.

The majority of the American populace will attest to what has been going on since January 2017.

Global news spreads fast enough.

The role of legitimate procedures has taken a very strict adherence to the law.  For instance, Federal Bureau of

Investigation (FBI) agents, initially under the direction of then Director James B. Comey, and most recently, special counsel

Robert S. Mueller III, have probed into several possible facets that could have existed between the Trump campaign and

Russian agents whose intent was to influence the 2016 election.

Mueller and his team evidently, have accelerated their phase by moving into trials with the intent of how a judge

and jury would convict a president: to prove how each branch of government has distinctive separate powers.

Considering the very recent weeks’ developments, the people believe that the fall elections will serve as a

referendum on the president and his demeanor.

Granted a Democratic victory will take place in November, it definitely does not indicate the end of Trump.

Even if the lower house will vote to impeach Trump, present facts cannot be shunted aside. There just

is no prospect that two-thirds of the Senate will be voting to remove Trump from his office.

There is hope ahead in the event a Democratic House will be realized.

A Democratic House is certain to usher in at least two years of investigations, hearings and the realization

on the disclosure of Trump’s tax returns which he has strongly withheld from the people.

The single obstacle is how Trump has not shown the ability to widen his base of support.

Records prominently indicate how Trump has survived six bankruptcies.

The immediate future will indicate whether or not that same survival can be possible in Trump’s political existence.

However proud and confident Trump prefers to appear, as he relies on his Republican allies, almost every aspect

of his political life will definitely be out and will not be capable of dodging the supreme test.

News accounts have brought out how Trump has insulted his perceived foes.

Most emphasized has been how he has belittled the Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

When Michael Cohen, his long personal attorney and “fixer,” ran into a spate of indictments over part of

the ever-increasing investigation by prosecutors with the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan, New York, Trump displayed

his reactions accompanied with rage, and insisted Cohen would ‘remain loyal’ to him.

But Cohen pleaded guilty to eight felonies involving tax evasion, loan fraud and violations of campaign laws.

Virtually, the last of those crimes under the proofs governing “campaign law violations,” pointed out to well-publicized

“hush money payments” to two women whose allegations were particularly indicative of “affairs with Trump,” shortly after his

third wife, Melania Trump had their son.

Cohen, as part of his guilty plea announced how he had acted “in coordination with and at the direction of”

an unnamed but clearly identifiable “candidate for federal office.”

Furthermore, Cohen declared how the hush money was paid, “for the principal purpose of influencing the

election” for president in 2016.

In view of the ongoing legal fights that Trump’s former aides are going through, it won’t take a lengthy

period for conclusions to be made.

The individuals whose cases still need to be decided by the law know how best to handle their legal problems

and in particular, will hold on to their beliefs relevant for their families’ benefit and love of country, as they have


As the recent time periods have proven, it won’t be a difficult task for the law to see that the 45th U.S. president

will not be able to avoid the political equivalent of bankruptcy.
