Almost every Legal analyst I have watched say talking to the Russians is only a crime, for candidate or president-elect and his people, if charged under the Logan Act. Many agree it would be a stretch to charge under that, and harder to get a conviction.
Everyone knows Trump's tweets are full of lies and nonsense to stroke his ego. Everyone calls him out about his lying tweets, unless it is what they want to hear. So now his tweets are fact and proof he obstructed justice.
I have said before that he is the hyper-active child that is always saying "look at me, look what i can do". He is the worlds most powerful Internet troll and media and people in general feed him. Responding to every stupid thing he says or does just feeds his fire. Even if he is POTUS, not everything he says or does is news worthy, most is just BS that should be ignored, but that would not be good for ratings.

News reports are claiming that 45's lawyer wrote the tweet.

Which, coincidentally, happened to have an exclamation mark at the end. Most use exclamation marks sparingly; 45 uses them almost all of the time.

How convenient...

As I understand it, whether written by Rump or his lawyer, it basically amounts to the same thing. The law doesn't really see a difference whether you avow of a crime, or your lawyer avows you of a crime.

The senate democrats are building a case. Could this be the begining of the end?

Would there be any chance of a deal for Trump?

Example: we drop any and all charges against you (if there are any) in return for you resigning and fucking off. 

(A lawyer would put it better than I could).

I have no doubt that even if Trump is not implicated in the Russian dealings, he sooner or later will thoughtlessly do something that clearly deserves impeachment. However, there's no political case for impeaching Trump over Russia. Nobody is truly afraid of Russia, despite the media's attention over the years. The current international villains are Islamist extremists and North Korea. So long as Trump maintains a hard line against those two, his supporters are not going to abandon him.

Kind of. It wouldn't be Muller's team suggesting it, rather representatives of the Republican party convincing Trump to resign before he gets impeached (à la Nixon).

Trump's tweeting his way into impeachment and criminal charges in 2018.

Meanwhile, Trump gives a big “fuck you” to native Americans today.

Of course, Andrew Jackson is his hero, so we really shouldn’t be surprised.
