This is exactly why Nixon was pardoned.  His legal troubles would have coincided with the 76 election

From the article:

What also became very real is the likelihood that the heart of any case against Trump, the Trump Org, Trump family members, or Trump associates will serve as a backdrop to next year's critical midterm elections. Congressional Republicans-who chose to strap themselves to a human time bomb rather than reconstitute their party-could spend the better part of 2022 beating back questions about their support for Trump and whether they continue to view him as the standard-bearer of their party.

I'm beginning to think the Republicans can't unstrap themselves from the Trump-bomb.

WTF is going on with the Senate Republicans and their resistance to a bipartisan commission? Mitch is asking, as a personal favor, that they don't vote for it? Now, with all sincerity, I'm beginning to think that there is a vast, right-wing conspiracy here... For reals... So horrifying it could tear the party apart.

Yes Trump and Republicans have broken many laws, committed treason, failed spectacularly at a pandemic response kissing to massive unnecessary death, added $9 trillion to the deficit in four years with nothing to show for it and perpetuate a Big Lie that is intended to destruct American democracy and install a dictator at the top

But Democrats might give people health care so it's obvious that we must continue to support the Republican party because people having health care is literally Hitler.

Please tear the party apart.  I don't want to live under neoliberalism for the rest of my life, but we got damned close to fascism, so I'll take the lesser of two evils.

The real problem is you cynics saying nothing is gonna happen. Not the fact Trump gets away with everything. If you clap for Tinkerbell hard enough, Trump gets put in prison.

Hopefully it hurts Republicans with the not rank and file voters.  But as for Trump, he'll never face criminal consequences.  Worst case scenario, house arrest.  Too much of a security risk in any real prison, and don't even bother mentioning solitary, might as well ask for a unicorn.

Destructor: I'm beginning to think the Republicans can't unstrap themselves from the Trump-bomb.


The most obvious answer is that the GOP thinks those bombs won't blow until well into the primary season, & if they do not bear hug Donnie all the GOP incumbents will be replaced with people far too far right for anyone in moderate districts to elect, resulting in no GOPers being elected except those in hard red districts. The hope would be that GOP incumbents will win the general through incumbency bias, desire for mixed government, & late breaking pivots from Donnie.

I'm not convinced that that's what they're thinking but it seems the least convoluted. Trouble is  it's definitely not gonna be what happens. The GOP primaries are gonna be a shiatshow. Reps with 100% voting record with Donnie are gonna be ousted by outsiders who will say the incumbent's not Trumpy enough. I've said it before but GOP primaries are gonna have literal murders of one of the primary candidates by the other one.

They're gonna have very few incumbents by the time of the general election.

What's important is that Daily Kos received their clicks from gullible rubes.

/yawn

OK. Been hearing that for a couple years now though... Tired of hearing how much trouble Trumpy Trump and the Fascist Bunch are going to be in some day.

It's vital for our country's future as a republic, but that doesn't mean it's actually going to happen. Just because the republic stands today, doesn't mean it is eternal.

So, stop cop teasing already. Let us know when it happens. Until then, I remain deeply skeptical and unimpressed in the American system's ability and willingness to hold corrupt politicians - particularly right-wing ones - to account.

Yeah, still haven't found anyone to produce ratings and clicks like Trump does.  MTG and Gaetz are poor substitutes (though they're working them like a speed bag).
 
2021-05-27 6:30:30 PM  
I'm good with the DAs taking their time and preparing their cases thoroughly. We had an armed invasion of the capital not six months ago, and look how successful the GOP has been in tamping down the public outrage. Some fresh meat ahead of the midterms may keep just enough of the GOP base from voting, and energize the Democrats to turn out.

Roughly 20% of the American population are die hard Trumpers who don't believe in reality. A jury has 12 people in it. The numbers aren't favorable for conviction no matter what evidence is shown. This is going to be tied up in court until he dies or is reelected so he can pardon himself.

A vast, right wing conspiracy seems to be materializing. And to think, I laughed at $hrillary KKKlingon.

I have a better analogy.

At the end of the Blues Brothers, Jake and Elwood are being chased by Carrie Fisher, Illinois Nazis, the Good Ol' Boys, a dozen deputies, hundreds of cops and the National Guard, with helicopters and tanks. Jake and Elwood go to prison.

This is the Trump family future.

I've been thinking very much the same. Loyalty to the party only explains so much of the bullshiat we've been seeing. My bet is they've been rigging elections for years and know it's only a matter of time before that comes out.

That works but I want him to end up poor, too.
Now, no one is immortal.  Some day Trump** (likely due to his age and 'actual' poor physical shape) will inevitably die.

When that day comes, I predict:

*The fastest green-lit article in Fark's history.
*So many comments rejoicing the fact that the ass-nugget is completely gone that a record amount of sub-threads will be made.
*People around the world will be celebrating; many dancing in the streets.
*People around the world will continue to celebrate the anniversary of that day for years to come.
*Unknown dirt comes to light that proves he, his family, his accomplices, his associates, et al were more criminal than was initially realized prior to his death.
