I'm very hopeful about the only clock he won't be running out. Death loves each and everyone of us.

I think not. I think courts will accelerate this because most of the courts are pissed at the obvious abuse. We'll see.

The article posited a primarily red realignment of the House of Representatives in 2022.

I think this to be the case as well. Particularly the judge he drew in his lawsuit, Judge Tanya Chuktan. She's already shown little patience for these farkers, sentencing many of the insurrectionists to more time than the prosecution was asking for.

And if Bannon is somehow remanded to custody, he's gonna biatch to Trump to speed things up to get him out in less than a year.

But even a fast-track prosecution would likely take months - and each day that passes would bring the Jan. 6 select committee one day closer to its expiration date.

I guess if I you look at the glass as half full if McCarthy had accepted the first offer the commission would be ended in two more months.

GrizzlyPouch: I guess Huff Post think's this 1/6 committee in the house is the only time anybody's looked into it?

They forgot about the 2nd impeachment?  And all the ongoing doj and fbi cases?

But yeah the truth is out there.  Just onnnee more investigation.  One more committee.  Maybe another special council or 2.

I'm sure somebody will find....something


That's just it though. It's not that they didn't find anything. Of course they've found things, how could you not? The problem isn't finding the crimes, it's finding the people who care about the crimes. 48% of the country believes that prosecuting Trump, et al, for their crimes is "unconstitutional government overreach", or just don't care that he's breaking the law. Sedition? Meh. Does it put Trump back in charge? As long as they believe it does, they don't care.

They're willing to overlook "PersonWomanManCamera. TV." and impeach Biden because he forgot the name of some assistant ambassador to Lithuania that served from 77-79. Also somehow not realizing that, it's not the fact that Trump "passed" a standard test for dementia, but the fact that someone close to him was concerned enough that they actually had him tested. That's the guy they want to put back in charge, because somehow, he'll make it "just like the last 4 years", which were, y'know, really, just super great.

The most severe sentence handed down so far has been a sentence of 14 months. The perpetrator will be back on the streets before 6 months.

I'm not seeing a compelling reason to humor that assumption. The GOP have committed a number of unforced errors since the 2020 election. One of them was constantly interfering with steps to alleviate a virus which is ripping through their voters.

They used to run the table on some pretty slim majorities. And in the stats where they have overwhelming numbers, that's because it's so damn small that losing 10,000 people is enough to radically alter the demographics.

they want to keep betting against the house, fine, but they are going to lose.
Eventually.
In court, or on a battlefield. 
They are trying to destroy our democracy.
Others have tried.

He only has to run it out until 2024 and claim presidential immunity and executive privilege again.
