Counterintelligence expert Malcolm Nance issued a chilling warning about the lengths he thinks President Donald Trump will go to save himself.
In an interview with SiriusXM Progress host Dean Obeidallah, Nance noted that from “day one” he was warning that America was under attack by Russia, who installed Trump in the presidency.
“Let me tell you this: Donald Trump is a megalomaniac,” Nance said. “We all know that. He is a raving narcissist and the deference that has been given to him is fuel to his megalomania. I think he’s capable of anything. And we are way past — way past — Richard Nixon talking to himself and talking to the portraits at the White House.”
He called Nixon a model of civility, decorum and respectability compared to Trump.
“Donald Trump does not care about the presidency,” Nance explained. He does not care about America. He does not care about the American public. He only cares about himself and he thinks the people that support him will do what he says.”
Nance went on to say that he’s spent his life defending the Constitution of the United States, working for the seat of the presidency and not the person.
“And that man is unfit to have ever been in there,” he continued. “It will be considered the worst mistake in American history. He will make this much, much worse. And what we need to do is be prepared to go down and reclaim our birthright through the Constitution.”

There’s no respite from Trump’s vindictiveness and foolishness
As we know, even in the midst of a national emergency, Donald Trump could find time and bandwidth to continue his retribution campaign.
He dismissed Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence agencies, for doing “a terrible job,” satisfying his own thirst for vengeance for anyone who actually adhered to law and practice over blind loyalty to Trump himself. Indeed, asked about it the next day, Trump underscored his action by saying, Atkinson “was no Trump supporter, that I can tell you.”
It was an act that we once would have labeled corruption, by Democrats and Republicans – that is using the office for personal purposes – if Congress and too many Americans had not since become inured by so many like instances.
This is how Taiwan and South Korea bucked the global lockdown trend
As the coronavirus pandemic sparks global lockdowns, life has continued comparatively unhindered in places like Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong after their governments and citizens took decisive early action against the unfolding crisis.
At first glance Taiwan looks like an ideal candidate for the coronavirus. The island of 23 million lies just 180 kilometres (110 miles) off mainland China.
Yet nearly 100 days in, Taiwan has just 376 confirmed cases and five fatalities while restaurants, bars, schools, universities and offices remain open.
The government of President Tsai Ing-wen, whose deputy is an epidemiologist, made tough decisions while the crisis was nascent to stave off the kind of pain now convulsing much of the rest of the world.
Republican ex-lawmaker with coronavirus scolds Wisconsin GOP for forcing voters to risk their health
On CNN Tuesday, former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA), who is himself dealing with a bout of COVID-19, chastised the Wisconsin GOP for doing everything in their power to block the state elections from being moved — and forcing many voters to stand in line and risk exposure to the virus to cast their ballot.
"I have to tell you, here in Pennsylvania we have a Democratic governor and Republican legislature," Dent told host Don Lemon. "They postponed the election here from April 28 until June 2. Without any controversy. Everybody agreed it was the right thing to do and they moved on. I'm surprised Wisconsin took this risk, knowing they don't have to."
