Wondering here. With all that's going on with RUMP (Muellers getting close)

Does anybody think there are ANY discussions going on (behind the scenes) about a possible resignation?

1. Nope. No chance. He's too narcissistic and believes -- probably based on his view of his

own life experience -- he always comes out on top in the end. And maybe he does/has; but it's pretty clear he doesn't care one bit about about the "how" he comes out on top. The ends always justify the means with him.

2. YEP agree with you.

He's probably thinking if they impeach him , then his base will RIOT. (which is what he would like!)

3. 1)quitting is for losers, 2)only being POTUS is keeping him from indictment so he can't quit anyway

Trump trusts nobody, even his family. He sure as hell doesn't trust Pence to pardon him once he has resigned and is powerless and at his mercy. He knows Pence is a smarmy opportunist. And as much as Pence kisses his ass now while he's the boss, he knows Pence will do what is best for Pence. A pardon of Trump may not be best for Pence.

Trump just does what he needs to do to get through the next day, or the immediate crisis. Resigning is not how to do that. "Fighting back" is (in his mind, it seems).

People around him might be talking about resigning, but a) he sure as hell isn't going to take that advice, and b) that's not even very useful advice because it doesn't solve the underlying problem -- that this truly is a criminal and counterintelligence investigation not merely a political witch-hunt. If it was just political, resigning and leaving the political sphere would make it peter out and die eventually (a la Benghazi and ButterEmails), but that's not what this is, or what would happen here.
