Apparently nobody in power has consulted the Fark Legal Experts©, who have consistently laid out unlimited amounts of facts, reasons and procedures for incarcerating trump.

Any day now.

ANY. DAY. NOW!

His co-conspirator Michael Cohen has already gone to prison and did his time . They could have put him in prison a long time ago. Since they didn't, one would assume they don't want to and these investigations and hearings are Democrats versions of Bhengazi. That isn't saying they are false ,just political theater.

There are an unlimited number of reasons for incarcerating Trump. You don't need to be a legal expert to see them.  Anyone can. And everyone knows the only reason for not acting on them is cowardice.

I'll fully admit that cowardice may rule the day here, and he may never answer for his crimes. But I don't get why you're pretending there is some esoteric, byzantine path to connect Trump to his crimes. It's a straight friggin line.

A lot of what we've see thus far has been either Trump having the right people in the right places or professional idiots willing to risk their reputation for him.  Problem is, he's running out of both.  The cost of not prosecuting Trump for stealing state secrets is basically the end of the rule of law in the United States.

They cease being political theater the minute the Jan 6 committee makes a criminal referral. If that doesn't happen before the midterms I will happily - well, maybe not so happily - come in here and eat my words.

Yeah cowardice will definitely win here. I think it's clear everyone is just hoping Trump dies as soon as possible. His critics for obvious reasons but even his fellow Republicans would much rather call on his memory to support their ambitions rather than the man himself

If it's such a straight line why can't the justice system follow it?
This many investigations with no indictments, because cowardice?

I am certain the Jan 6  committee will make a criminal referral. I am 90% sure he will be indicted by the DoJ. Hes given them basically no alternative but to charge him under 18 usc 793.

What happens after that I have no idea, and wouldn't dare speculate.

His defense are other political operatives, officials, and judges that don't want to set a precedent of incarcerating prior presidents.

/because they have ambitions of being President some day

They are following it. I wasnt sure about that until a few months ago, but if you can't see that now you either are not paying attention, or you just don't want to.

The fact that it isn't happening on your particular timeline is your problem, not the DoJ's.

Jan. 6 committee will not make any criminal referrals, chairman says


But the committee's vice chair Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., suggested later on Monday that a decision was not yet final.

"The committee has not issued a conclusion regarding potential criminal referrals. We will announce a decision on that at an appropriate time," she said in a statement on Twitter.

Rep. Elaine Luria, D-Va., tweeted in a separate statement, that the committee "has yet to vote," on recommending criminal referrals.

I honestly think they will wait till after the midterms to make it look like political.
That said, he is running out of competent lawyers. I think most compantent lawyers has finally had enough of him. Can't understand why it took them so long.

I think a trumper will kill him for martyrdom, making him Saint Trump, and every right-wing pundit will evoke his glorious memory to commit every crime under the black sun. Like Jeebus, they don't need an actual body.

When there are criminal referrals, indictments, prosecutions, convictions and sentences we'll all be on the same timeline. Meanwhile I haven't stressed myself with obsessing over the demise of anyone.

That's a decent point. I will amend my prediction: they will make a referral before the next Congress is seated in January.
