It'd be a waste of time to prosecute these ahead of the inauguration anyway. Afterward, different story.

Sure, after the inauguration it'll be time to heal and put the past behind us so we can work together for the good of the nation.

I'm cool with not going after them if Biden is elected. But the *instant* Fox News/GOP/Right-wingers harp on something like, say, a speech to elementary school kids being "indoctrination", the gloves better hit the farking ice.

While throwing them in jail would set a bad precedent, the best way to hurt rich people is to take their money. They should fine the crap out of these clowns, and in Pompeo's case, block his ability to raise funds for political purposes.

So am I. We live in the wrong country. Laws are only for poor people in the USA.

Funny, because I was thinking the best way to hurt them is a pair of pliers and a blowtorch.

It is rare that someone near me on the political spectrum can write something that makes me want to vomit but here is a case where you managed it.  A lot of us are afraid that is exactly what is going to happen.

I am in favor of Swalwell's Presidential Crimes Commission.   Hand out immunity as needed, but get the truth out and don't involve Biden.

Do you know which other Secretary of State never violated the Hatch Act?

Henry. Fuxking. Stimson, that's who.

/NOT EVEN ONCE!

Guillotines.  Motherfarking guillotines.  Winning the election is pointless if in 4 to 8 years one of the same batch of grifters who have been screwing us since Nixon skated free wins and starts the dry-farking all over again.

Hear me out....

What if the people who are supposed to be holding them accountable don't care to? You're allowed to get mad at that, too.

I was thinking today it would kind of fun if Trump loses that the Biden administration pushes to charge all the Trump cabinet members that violated the Hatch Act.   I haven't see a statued of limitations on the crime.

A rule is only as good as its enforcement mechanism.

this is likely what's going to happen (Swalwell's proposed Commission). Biden has already said that he will not interfere should his AG find that Trump committed some wrongdoing that requires prosecution.

What are you loons freaking out about now? We've established that crime isn't crime. Give it a rest Chicken Little.

Criminals should be thrown in jail. Pardoning Nixon was the bad precedent; stop letting these corrupt clowns go on four year crime sprees knowing they'll get away with it because they will be pardoned. Maybe they'd think twice if they knew prison awaited them.

Didn't it already come out that his travel schedule as Secretary of State was dictated by hosting fundraiser for future political office with Americans living abroad?

Pardoning Nixon?

You're not wrong in that but you are a hundred years and more late. Pardoning the traitors who took up arms against the United States was the bad precedent. Lee, Davis et al should have hung. Officers in the supposed Confederate Army should have seen lifetime prison terms. Ordinary soldiers should have spent years of hard labor.

We didn't do that, sadly. And 'conservatives' have been ratfarking this nation ever since.

Unless Congressional leadership refuses to allow it because, let's face it, he's just not worth it.

So, you're all about shows that glorify cops violating the rights of people and their above-the-law attitudes? Cool.

We cannot let the amount of corruption and grift in this administration go unchallenged.

We cannot let this country heal with this blatant of a festering wound.

And if we let Trump off the hook, do you think he will go quietly?  Hell no.  He will be inciting chaos everywhere.  He needs to answer for his crimes.

/so much for the tolerant left.

Burn em at the stake on the WhiteHouse Lawn. Seriously Best way to deal with corruption is to execute them for their criminal actions.
