Trump warned of endless executive investigations—he just got one small detail wrong

In light of reports that Donald Trump is now being investigated for potential obstruction of justice, NBC News has a quick campaign trail flashback from the Don:

Endless investigations. The biggest scandal since Watergate. Coverups. An inability to govern. A possible constitutional crisis.

Ah, yes. It was all going to be horribly “crooked” and disastrous. And indeed it is, which has to make one wonder if Trump’s predictions were born of pure projection. Because nearly every evil he once cast on Hillary Clinton’s potential presidency has actually come true with swift precision—except it’s the Don who’s at the center of that political tempest.

Let’s string together some of the phrases NBC dug up from Trump at campaign rallies during the final weeks of the election, from Oct. 28 to Nov. 6.

“The investigation is the biggest political scandal since Watergate … a criminal massive enterprise and cover-ups like probably nobody ever before … it would create

unprecedented and protracted constitutional crisis … In that situation, we could very well have a sitting president under felony indictment and ultimately a criminal trial.”

And then there’s this:

“There’s virtually no doubt that FBI Director Comey [special counsel Mueller] and the great, great special agents of the FBI will be able to collect more than enough evidence to garner indictments.”

From your lips to god’s ears, Donny.
