Everything this jabroni does is worse than it looks, and will leave scars on this nation for decades, if not longer.

FTFA: "Except that the Stone commutation shouldn't be so quickly forgotten or replaced by the latest outrage."

Sure, but...
Is it worse than separating small children from their families, and then losing track of the families?
Is it worse than alienating our international allies and emboldening our enemies?
Is it worse than ignoring bounties put on our soldier's heads by those enemies?
Is it worse than inviting foreign intelligence services to interfere with a US Presidential election?
Is it worse than stoking racial hatred to a fever pitch and emboldening fringe white power groups that have been the source of most internal US terrorism for decades?
Is it worse than... shiat I ain't got all day. I mean, if the Roger Stone kerfluffle is what finally broke this reporter's outrage meter, he has NOT been paying attention.

"And then he does another outrageous thing, and the previous outrage is forgotten or cast to the side. Lather, rinse, repeat."

Nice to see CNN admit the error of their ways.

Wonder if they'll fix it.

Yes, because it indicates to the people doing those things on his orders that they are free from legal consequence

I'm skimmed through the whole article, but it only pointed out that it's corrupt to erase someone's penalty for their lying on your behalf. We already knew that.

Yeast No 7: Nice to see CNN admit the error of their ways.


And you know, that article didn't offer anything we haven't already talked about on here. Pretty much, it is the long-form version of Mitt's tweet, which they throw in at the very end:

"Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president."

I'm sure that this is finally the one thing that makes the G O P impeach him ..

If there's anyone who thinks that Stone's sentence was commuted because it was unfair instead of what he knew about Trump's crimes, please respond to this post.

We are still trying to recover from the shiat Saint Ronny Raygun did. 

Trump has done worse, and more to damage the working of the nation. We will never fully recover from it. 

People will still be dying from the actions trump has taken 100 years from now.

It's more like the shiat cherry on top of the shiat sundae.

Okay, that makes it sound like it's the last bad thing he'll do. Let's make it the shiat chocolate sauce. After which are the shiat nuts, shiat sprinkles, and shiat whipped cream. Probably some shiat cookie crumbs, too. And Donnie gets seconds and lives for excess, so

Assuming he commuted the sentence at all... I've seen no official documentation of such a commutation, only tweets indicating that it happened. Would I be at all surprised if he hadn't actually commuted the sentence... no. I hope Judge Jackson throws Stone in the slammer until such official documentation of a commutation is produced.

Someone on the news the other day was saying that we should still impeach him even if he's voted out, so he can't run for public office again.

I do think it's different from most of those things, in that it emboldens his grunts to do all of the above more, knowing that he has their back as long as they stay loyal. It shows we have little to no system of checks and balances when you pair it with the election stuff, that Stone was covering for.

And there's all the bumpkins, yeehaws, bigots, godbotherers and other sub-50-IQ knuckle-draggers who voted for that greedy piece of shiat simply because he's NOT Democrat.
 
2020-07-13 7:16:04 PM  
The main thing that article did was remind me that the farker only got 40 months for what he did.

F. F. S.

Can he be arrested and tried for other / "lesser" / more specific / state crimes that Mango Mass Murderer couldn't pardon/wave away?
 
2020-07-13 7:18:45 PM  
Which is easier to understand?

A) Reams and reams of documentation detailing the specifics of laws that were broken
B) "This is a hoax by the other team."

A huge swath of the population can always be counted upon to choose (B). These people are utterly unreachable through logical means, and need to be approached in the fashion they require: "Look at what a pussy Trump is, here he is being weak / eating arugula / getting put in his place by a woman / etc." It won't get the die-hard straight-ticket voters, but it will get some of the party base to stay home on election day.

Oh, I'm fully aware it won't go anywhere. But at least it's DOING SOMETHING.

And it will further hang the GOP with Trump.  They bought this man child, make damn sure that they get to own it.

That's a good point, but I think all the worst outrages are things Trump has done himself, aside from the family separations. And ICE personnel can just claim they were obeying legal orders that came from AG Sessions to shield them from legal consequences. Granted, there might be more to come as we get closer to November, but I think it's unlikely. If I was a Roger Stone type, I'd be hesitant to risk any further illegal activity, if it looks like Trump won't have the pardon power anymore by the time the courts get rolling on my case.

Replying to my own post -- on reflection, I'm giving the people Trump surrounds himself with far too much credit. There will be farkery, but by the time the farkery makes it to court, Trump probably won't be in power anymore. I really don't want to think too much about the possibility that the farkery actually works, and he wins. I much prefer to hold onto my well-justified faith in their incompetence.

That absolute turd of a letter filled with lies and trash from his will be available for study and review forever. The guy literally wrote what could be ascribed to his demented brain, at best, or his complete corrupt and criminal ways, at worst. Most likely both. It's some consolation now but they're going to be asking for generations "what the fark was wrong with that moron?"

Puerto Rico is one of the hundreds of examples of Trumps indifference and incompetence. In my opinion, it doesn't rise to the same level of democracy-destroying evil that the other examples, and Roger Stone's commutation, represent.

His advisor was found to have colluded with foreign powers then lied about it, and Trump paid him back with a commutation.

So as bad as we knew it was during the trial?

Cynical as I am, I'm on board with this.  If only because it will force him to defend impeachment while running his campaign.

Flip side is so will impeachment officers and all senators, I don't think anyone will vote for it because of that.
