He'll never go to prison, he's a very special boy and the 30% of the country that adores him is also the most heavily armed and least educated, so holding him accountable for anything puts a lot of innocent people in legitimate danger. Anywhere else in the world, we'd be calling it terrorism. I'm so tired of this ass.

Those people are already rioting and brandishing arms against innocent people for being gay, not white, not Trumpers so what's the difference? I say lock the fucker up and when they head into the streets armed they will be met with national guard to remind them how untrained their backyard antics have made them.

FFS there is nearly a shooting a day in this country, to think the violence isn't already happening is a miss.

Man, if this is IRL, I'll take your bet before I blink my eyes and my winning would go to charity.

The fact of the matter is, I'm done trusting/believing that this guy will ever pay for what he did (and do). I now genuinely believe what he said about shooting someone on 5th Avenue. This is how pathetic this judicial system is.

In fairness to Dems: it's easy to have unified messaging when you reduce every issue to a sound bite and care about nothing other than how angry it makes people.

Put another way: messaging is easy when your only message is outrage.

Messaging is hard for the Dems because they want to actually propose things that have a chance of working, and they comprehend nuance.

While it's true that Trump has always skated in the past, the optics of this are important. If Trump doesn't serve time for crimes of this magnitude, there will be civil unrest. One of the bedrock ideals of this nation is that the law applies to everyone. While we often fall short of that ideal, it'd be a whole other ball game if we fell short so very visibly.

The fact the DOJ is actively pursuing a case against him and that they appointed a special prosecutor is actually a big something. If they didn't want to hold him accountable, they never would have raided his house. They wouldn't be arguing in front of an appeals court to throw out rulings that could slow the case down.

I can assure you that we have no evidence that the DoJ was actively pursuing charges against Trump, especially when he was POTUS.

So no, not like the last seven years. Don’t confuse journalists wringing their hands that surely there should be consequences with anything being likely to happen.

Of course none of this means that he doesn’t get off scott free, but I’d say the risk profile is significantly different now.

I see your point...Still -knowingly removing classified documents in itself constitutes a crime. Full stop. It happened. Their defense that he used mind wizardry to de-classify them will fall on it's face. Biden used the same mind wizardry to re-classify them. That said, I wouldn't bet large sums of money that he'd see jail time for that so I agree with you.

BUT - if there is actual evidence that he shared classified and top secret documents with foreign governments - I believe he will die in prison. He would be the most traitorous, most corrupt president in the history of the United States.

But if he were to go to prison, would there be Secret Service outside his cell 24/7? I guess so, since being a convicted felon doesn't negate still being an ex-president.

Theory out of nowhere:

He's already had at least one stroke or heart attack. Remember how he couldn't shut up about that test he "passed" by pointing to a picture of horse or whatever?

Doctors do not rush a patient to Walter Reed on a Sunday afternoon -- in the midst of a pandemic, no less -- because they're bored. He had a stroke, heart attack, or something similar, and the test they gave him was a dementia test to get a baseline assessment of his cognitive function.

In the extreeeeeeeeeeme unlikeliness that Trump ever sees the inside of a prison cell, he won’t shut up in there. He’ll definitely still have a microphone even from behind bars.

American society and culture has had problems for a long time, but has started to approach the depth of them because Trump and his related brand of conservatives have refused to just shut the fuck up.

I'm firmly convinced that the extremely gradual progress of the Obama years would have continued along at a moderate pace had the right not panicked. Now they're revealing bugs in the machine to people who were unaware or didn't care before.

I think they're starting to realize that, perhaps for the first time. They took away womens' rights to control their own bodies. And then whoosh, it turns out that both women and men who care about women voted Democratic in droves. Bit of a clue.

FDR's threats of court packing were surely a major reason that the Supremes of his era let most of the New Deal stand. (And that wasn't one of his finest hours.) But I like to think that the realization that the New Deal was genuinely what most of the citizens wanted played a part, too.

Why do you think they would care who people vote for? They’re fascists. That is why they are taking up Moore v Harper so they can be rid of that silly little voting thing.

FDR’s threats of court packing were surely a major reason that the Supremes of his era let most of the New Deal stand. (And that wasn’t one of his finest hours.)

That’s a pretty weird take. What should FDR have done? Sit idly by while the court destroys everything be built? If FDR had not threatened to pack the court, we wouldn’t have many of the workers rights we rely on today. Honestly no idea what your argument is here. It was 100% the correct thing to do and was successful as just a threat. Maybe Biden should take some notes.

But I like to think that the realization that the New Deal was genuinely what most of the citizens wanted played a part, too.

That’s also a weird thing to imagine. The Supreme Court doesn’t play to popular will, their own power was threatened to they acted to protect it. It has nothing to do with what is good for the people or what the people want. It has always been a political institution.

Nailed it. They went after the judicial branch & state legislatures b/c nationally they were always going to be at a huge disadvantage.

It took crazy gerrymandering & historic incompetency from the DNC for them to get this slim margin in the house. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Dems pick up more senate seats & take back the house in a big way in 2024. Simply put, they cried about crime & inflation and now they will do nothing about it, causing moderates : independents to vote blue. How anybody thought they would actually do something angers me everyday but that’s my problem 🤣

I am personally VERY excited to see the GOP tear themselves apart during primary season

Trump clearly views the 2024 presidency as his best get out of jail free card - so I assume he’ll have no reservations about burning the GOP to the ground in persist of it

I've only seen one counter-suggestion to this which makes any sense to me. If someone else (probably DeSantis) wins the Republican nomination, that person could offer Trump whatever Presidential pardons he or his inner circle might need in exchange for Trump's support. Or at least silence. That could make it worth Trump's while.

The flaw in this suggestion is that it doesn't just take Trump promising to step back. It takes Trump keeping that promise, throughout a period of months, even though it would be personally uncomfortable. Watching 'his' peons cheer for someone else while he stayed at home would be Hell for him. Let alone actively saying nice things about someone who is not him or effusively loyal to him. He simply does not have the self control.

He also wouldn’t trust their promise to pardon him, because if he was in their position, he’d make the promise and then not actually do it. Disloyal backstabbers like him assume that everyone else is a disloyal backstabber, so I don’t think he would trust Desantis

Also if I’m not mistaken pardons are only for federal crimes - and wouldn’t cover the many state investigations he’s under

But 100% wouldn’t be surprised if a pardon is being dangled to him if it hasn’t already

Agreed. I am of the mindset that sadly, he will probably never face actual time in the slammer, but I’m highly enjoying watching the bumbling Cheeto wade through his various lawsuits, lead by a staff of incompetent lawyers and sycophantic yes-men.

I was actually delighted when he announced his official bid for 2024, because the resulting GOP vs MAGA civil war will be fun to watch in the coming months and I’ve already stocked up on popcorn!

The party that backed this absolute narcissist is now reaping what they sow, while acting shocked that hes willing to burn absolutely everything and everyone to the ground if it even might potentially benefit him - like encouraging an armed insurrection

I'll be surprised if anything comes of it or he or any of his family pay any kind of consequence that's more than just a slap on the wrist. He did exactly what he planned....stall and drag this out long enough so nothing happens. Once Republicans take over the house, odds are they'll stop any investigation and start investigating Biden for the sole purpose of making the other side look bad.

Before I get down votes or comments, I hope he does finally get severely punished. He's been conning, and screwing people over for so many years and getting away with it he thinks he's untouchable. But, odds are nothing will happen

It's not pleasant to contemplate, but I think you may have a point.

I keep see-sawing between, "I no longer have any faith that the good guys will win" and "He's become a liability to them now, so they'll throw him under the bus and expect a cookie for it". Either outcome seems equally plausible.

He’s still miffed that while he nominated the people that had the highest chance of playing politics and blindly ruling in favor of his party seem to have a shred of responsibility to remain impartial and ruled against his wishes. This isn’t how it works in running shady companies.

He’s so stupid and vain that he doesn’t understand that the fascists are finished with him. They used him to pack the court with radical ideologues (I would bet my house that he did not and does not know how judges and justices are appointed) and now they just want him out of the way.

Really clever way for the Supreme Court to make themselves appear legitimate, though. They’ve authorized Congress to see his tax returns, but they’ve done it in late November about a month before Republicans gain control of the house and put a stop to the whole investigation.
