Seth Meyers: Maybe Donald Trump Has Money On His Own Impeachment

The late night host reacts to the mounting allegations from the past week.

Seth Meyers hammered Donald Trump amid mounting allegations leveled at the president, and wondered if the former businessman perhaps cut a deal on his own failure. 

“Trump is harming his presidency so much I wouldn’t be surprised if he was throwing it because he has money on his own impeachment,” Meyers joked. “Before he was sworn in, I bet he called his bookie and said, ‘I’ll take the under.’”

Reports surfaced this week that before Trump fired James Comey, he asked the former FBI director to cease the bureau’s investigation into former National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn.

The seemingly never-ending scandal embroiling the White House reached fever pitch on Wednesday when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed a special prosector to oversee the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

“Congress needs to take this seriously,” Meyers said of recent news events. “Instead, GOP leaders seem to be maintaining their cynical alliance with Trump just to get some taxed cuts passed.”
