and that's why the NYAG is probably getting all relevant evidence against him too for just such an eventuality

I don't think they're incompetent, per se, but they're doing their damndest to so muddle and taint the investigation that they can try to get everything thrown out of court.

I'm thinking that Trump's idiocy is so great that it infects the people that come in contact with him.

Yeah, but credit where it's due subby, Trump's lawyer's lawyers are doing a slightly better job. By the time they lawyer up too, someone vaguely competent might actually get hired.

If he gets pardoned, he can't take the Fif afterwards. All the juicy details could come out or he spends life in jail for contempt... should they bother punishing anyone for anything.

Yeah, but this is Trump. Nobody vaguely competent would want to get hired by Trump, because somebody at least vaguely competent would want to get paid in full.

I'm just glad that they're too incompetent to do the REAL nefarious shiat they have in mind.

This is a pretty big farking deal. The longer the Mueller investigation lasts, the more cash the RNC loses to put up any sort of defense in 2018. This is delicious.

If this guy was gonna give up anything I doubt he will now.

And I also expect the Rs questioning him to talk over anyone trying to get anything and to not ask anything of real consequence themselves.

I can pinpoint the exact moment I knew something was fishy, and that moment was when the results came in from North Carolina showing Trump winning, and every anchor was in silent confusion for a few seconds and Steve Schmidt just said "Uh....uh oh".

That started it.

Then the results came in from Michigan, Wisconsin, ....

They probably just gave him a regular football.

Trump: What's "Wilson"?
Person we all hope exists: It's the guy who invented the nuclear. Like all great men, he put his name on everything.
Trump: I like you. So when I want to actually launch nukes, what do I press?
Person: You press down on the stitches. But don't do it unle-
Trump: Like this?  *Presses down on stitches*

Yep. He lost the popular vote by MILLIONS, yet still 'won' the electoral college by a handful of votes spread across a few states...states that, coincidentally, mostly had Republican governors and/or state legislatures with histories of electoral corruption (Wisconsin, Michigan and North Carolina in particular). That is PRECISELY how someone would rig an election without making it immediately obvious to the layperson.

Combine that with what we now know (that electronic voting machines are pretty farking easy to hack, and that Russia at least tried to access sensitive electoral data in numerous states, and may have succeeded in at least two), and the lengths Trump's gone to to obstruct the investigation...shiat is sketchy as hell.

While actual proof of election rigging in Trump's favor (which I do not yet believe is supported by sufficient evidence) would be ironically amusing, I know that Trump's supporters would deny it no matter how clear it was.

I was thinking the questioning will be along three lines of "Did you do anything bad?"
"No"
"Well I guess that wraps it up. There's nothing here to investigate."

I hope it's impeachment. I'd like the vague chance there could be justice this side of the grave.
