The Last Decent Man

Yesterday I wrote a post here and asked the question why people weren't quitting from Donald Trump's White House when it was obviously a horrible place to work, a fatal pox on a resume, and a cesspool of corruption.

Perhaps in response to the original Boston Globe piece that inspired me to write my entry, conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin published a short tribute of sorts (link here) to a gentleman named Mark Corallo who resigned from the Trump administration when it became obvious the President was engaging in obstruction of justice when he wrote a statement full of lies after the story broke about how Russian operatives met with Trump's campaign manager, his son, and his son-in-law in Trump Tower.

She quotes from Michael Wolff's bombshell book: "Mark Corallo was instructed not to speak to the press, indeed not to even answer his phone. Later that week, Corallo, seeing no good outcome — and privately confiding that he believed the meeting on Air Force One represented a likely obstruction of justice — quit."

The White House was obviously were trying to muzzle him and make him complicit in the cover-up. This suggests he had protested strongly in Trump's presence. He then refused to have anything more to do with them and walked. Good for him.

Hopefully Special Counsel Robert Mueller has spoken to Corallo as part of his criminal investigation into Trump and his associates. While the question of whether a sitting President can be indicted has never been resolved, anyone reporting to Trump certainly can be criminally prosecuted now.

And by the way, Mr. Corallo is very easy on the eyes (details here).
