I can't think of any reason why, if the NYAG has sufficient evidence to indict the President, they should have to wait until he's out of office before issuing said indictment.
Of course they will have to wait until he's out of office to try him, but it's not as if the imdictment itself should need to wait.

Heres an idea.  put out the charges in september or october.  start the proceedings at the state level, and he is reelected, god help us, sort it out in court.  if he is not reelected, then continue on and by january they could be ready to go to trial.

it would really be awesome to have the inauguration WITHOUT trump or any of his cronies there.

October is going to be a total shiatshow...

Barr will be dropping the Durham report (assuming it has something that will smear Biden)
Trump may be trotting out Russia's vaccine for everyone to use
The Post Office may be out of business by then
And the NYAG may or may not be filing charges...

Hold on to your butts!

It's going to be amazing how sick, old, and decrepit Trump will get as soon as he has to show up in court.

No, Democrats and other normal people don't fight dirty. That's why they fail.

But how will donald run the White House if Ivanka, Jared, Half-Scoop, and I'm Eric are too busy being tossed in jail to help him?

They don't have to wait for him to be out of office. In fact, the indictment will probably need to be done before the election because of a different wait. They need to wait for the Grand Jury, which will probably expire before the election. They may be able to extend it, or call a new one but they'll probably want to push out the charges before the election rather than wait around, running the risk of the statute of limitations expiring.

To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail, nonetheless. It's frightening, turns the legs to jelly. I ask you to what end? Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives all the same. And now it is here, communists. Your rioting, plandemic, biden's child sniffin ass and mail fraud attempt...You could not live with your own failure, and where did that bring you? Back to Trump.

Barring unforeseen circumstances Trump will get more votes on election day and that will be the basis to claim any other result is illegitimate.

October Surprise is coming early this time: right before Labor Day.


THE DURHAM REPORT!

(Which is one reason I don't think the DNC is stupid enough to choose Rice as the vp . . . but you never know, they were stupid enough to choose Biden.)

Well, I guess they should go where the law and the facts take them, whatever the timing might be.

But you know that, after Biden is inaugurated (god willing), some grandstanding sheriff somewhere in bumblefark Oklahoma will immediately order Biden's arrest for treason or some-such. Democrats will complain, and many earnest articles in The Federalist will accuse them of hypocrisy.

Much more likely

1)  Trump's taxes get leaked
2) Mueller grand jury docs get  leaked
3) PP Tape
4) evidence of trump / DB farkery gets leaked


The Durham report will likely just be more noise just to rile up the MAGA rubes, much like the Nunes memo

There will be no vaccine before the end of the year. The Russian one is bullshiat, like everything else coming out of Russia.

No special report about Biden is gonna move the needle either for or against him. Most of the opinions about both candidates are calcified (just like last time) except this time, the incumbent is a historically unprecedented fark-up who had numerous chances to try to do the right thing and refused to, every single time. And continues to whine about how bad HE'S being treated, so that's really resonating extra-hard now, with at least 180,000 people dead of COVID.

It's not dick-sucking time yet, but it isn't 2016, either. None of the morons who supposedly couldn't vote for Hillary (because reasons, totally not racism or sexism, for reals, you guys) last time have that excuse now.

If you think the run-up to Nov. 3rd will be a shiatshow, wait until the timeframe between 11/4/20 and 1/20/21.

It's gonna be unprecedented and horrifying.

Inauguration day.  Camera on Biden as he prepares to take the oath pans up to the exit to the seating area.  Small group of obvious law enforcement starts to gather in their conspicuous attempts to be unobtrusive. Someone notices them, points them out to Trump.  He turns and looks, and realises he's farked, but is literally trapped like a rat.  Camera tight on his face for the realization.

Everyone should want to see what the Durham report reveals: GOOD
If the vaccine works, good. If it doesn't, Democrats can pin the blame: GOOD
The Post Office may be out of "business" by then: GOOD
The NYAG may or may not be filing charges (assuming it has something that will smear Trump): GOOD

So, we all good then?
