Federal court?
Yeah, who cares. Nothing's going to happen.

Lighten up, bob. It's more than they ever did to Cheney and Bush for war crimes/profiteering charges... Or Nixon for his Crimes and they wiped away Iran Contra...

I say good on them for trying and keep it up!

"Possible".  I don't think anyone who isn't drinking the Kool-Aid doesn't think Trump and his cronies are as crooked as all fark.

File in state court so Trump can't interfere then

Today is something like the anniversary of Mueller empaneling a grand jury or something like that

So, whatever.

The subpoena for the financial records is being decided in federal court and Vance will almost certainly win.  The actual fraud charges are in the NY state.

Yawn.

And how astounding is that?  A yawn.  So many scandals, crimes committed, laws broken, ethics mangled, subpoenas refused etc that a story like this, which would be MASSIVE if about any other president, elicits a yawn.

Need to get this farking criminal out of office and in a prison cell where he can rot out his days.

This system is so broken for insulating someone against crimes they committed prior to being in office just because they were elected president.

It's even more ridiculous because some of the crimes that Trump committed actually helped him get into office.

Nothing will happen because President Profiteer has dirt on the Manhattan DA, Cyrus Vance.

Trump is fighting in federal court to block the release of financial records to a New York County grand jury.  After the case went all the way up to SCOTUS for a decision as to whether or not the New York county DA could even request the records, the decision came down 7-2 that yes, the DA can ask for the records and sent the case back to the US District Court.

Post-election, Trump's GOP "friends" will suddenly lose a lot of their incentive to protect the Fat Orange Biatch.

It will be glorious

But when that happens, for real, everyone who said they'd take to the streets all those other times and then failed to take to the streets will really, actually, no joke, take to the streets this time!

/If their bosses will let them use some of their PTO to do so.

Hasn't Trump and his companies already been convicted of fraud?

Check me if I'm wrong here, but isn't that like investigating if cotton candy has sugar.

This must mean something huge is about to drop. I think we're in for a crazy Friday.

I think the Biden administration will make an example out of Trump. Biden is old and almost out of farks to give.

Especially if he does truly plan on only being around for a single term. Having a black woman vice president will give the deranged would-be assassins a modicum of pause.

I can't believe I am talking about the United States of America and not some war torn African dictatorship.

Nice work, Mr President. Our COVID response has been orders of magnitude worse than Rwanda's.

The key word is "provable". If anything, this will show exactly who had any smarts working for drumpf and company . Based on what we have seen so far- not many , but he has to have had at least one person who knows / knew how to bury things , or exploit every single legal loophole to keep the 3 card monty game going this long. Of course, that person could very well be in the employ of the public , so giant barrel of worms / haystack to sort through. IMHO.

Day One operation of President Biden:  Order the immediate and unconditional release of all of Donald Trump's Tax returns from the day he turned 18 until today.   Yes, the President can order the IRS to do that.

I am absolutely amazed that nothing of any real substance has leaked from Trump's accounting firm, the IRS, Trump Org, Deutsche Banc, etc.

I can. He has a corrupt Department of "Justice" going after his enemies and pardoning the loyal.

Cohen went to jail (for crimes he committed for Trump!).

Stone didn't.
