Why this conservative thinks it's time for Trump to go

Bill Clinton’s perjury and obstruction and all his administration’s other transgressions were sins against the U.S. system of justice. They merited serious punishment that they never fully received.

The Trump world’s transgressions, though, are potentially more damaging still because they put our national security at risk. They merit prophylactic action – namely, a resignation for the sake both of the public weal and of Trump’s family honor.

Even if you do not have Trump’s decades-long history of seeking business with morally questionable Russian entities or his 10-year history of bizzaro-world praise for Putin or his abject betrayal of American honor by implying that our human rights record is as bad as Russia’s … yes, even if none of that strangely pro-thug-Russian context doesn’t already exist, you should be mortified to learn that your namesake son, your extremely close son-in-law to whom you have given a huge White House portfolio, and your then-campaign manager all met with somebody sold as a “Russian government lawyer” as “part of Russia and its government’s support” for your campaign.
