Richard Painter it will only get worse for Trump.




Former Bush Ethics Attorney Richard Painter Says There’s Only 1 Way Out For Trump Now
He said the president better move fast because time is running out.

2. The Deal Could Be Unwritten

"We're indicting you unless you resign. We'll keep the indictment sealed and when you go on TV to say you're going back to NY, we'll open it and shred it."
