Let’s hope he’s burned all his immunity and gets to face real consequences for all his dirty deeds.
You can skate on some of your crimes some of the times…
I would still like to know where in the constitution does it say, a sitting president can’t be brought up on charges. I know there is something in there about emoluments. They couldn’t charge trump with emoluments while in office, then the Supreme Court throws out the case when he leaves. Where are our checks and balances?
Nice metaphor. And I mean, that “nice” both ways.
Hope Merrick Garland gets the pleasure of playing Trump Monopoly as the new Attorney General. Better if it could be before Trump’s appearance at the CPAC convention in Florida, but I’ll wait knowing he’s not above the law.
Hopefully the next move will be “Go to jail. Go directly to jail. Do not go to fundraisers, do not collect millions of dollars.”
He claimed he didn’t want to be president, but once he got started campaigning, his addiction to “winning” wouldn’t let him quit. Unfortunately for him winning put him in the spotlight (or, more realistically, crosshairs) in such a way that he could no longer skate past the consequences of the kind of criminal actions that he was used to getting away with as a wealthy, (in-)famous private citizen. He should have stuck with being just another bloviating real estate developer, now he’s probably going to reap the whirlwind that he’s been sowing for decades. Actions have consequences … bad actions have bad consequences!
Now, now, now… Come March when the Ted Kaczynski and Ramboo wannabes try to come outta the neverwouldwork, uh… I mean woodwork to try it one… more… time (hey, why isn’t Count Basie Orchestra playing?) Donny the Quicker F’er Upper will run again. To get away from tax indictments.
Lost two cases before the SCOTUS in one day!! What a LOSER!!
That card expired: January 20, 2021.
I saw a news report ( NBC ) that Trump Hotel DC Has no business, Dead , while the news crew were there some people walk in and asked " where were all the people " ?
I have not played Monopoly for many years. Has the board layout been updated to reflect recent culture? Have the low-rent properties lost their East European poor immigrant references and been given Mexican and Central American names? Are wealthy areas like Dubai and Singapore given representation?
Have the utilities and railroads given way to entertainment and computer / internet companies? How many hotels and business/ condo towers are labeled “Trump”?
Now investigations in federal, state, and local jurisdictions can proceed without interference nor immunity claims from the former guy. If he and/or his businesses are found guilty of crimes, let them pay the penalties under U.S. law.
looking forward to seeing the forker spend many, many years in court. and, if there’s a gourd in heaven, in prison…
Trump’s Tax Returns Aren’t the Only Crucial Records Prosecutors Will Get
Mr. Vance’s office has issued subpoenas and conducted interviews in recent months as it scrutinizes a variety of financial matters, including whether the Trump Organization misrepresented the value of assets when obtaining loans or paying property taxes
The Constitution has checks and balances, what it does not condone is venomous hate!
We need to pay attention to state and local elections as well. And increase the number of SCJustices so one retirement/death does not skew the flow of justice. And I do wish we could go with popular vote instead of electoral college crap.
How many think he’ll see the inside of a cell for even 5 minutes?
I expect there to be multiple fund-me accounts set up to keep him out of jail any day now.
Unlike Monopoly, Trump can’t just flip the board over when he’s losing and declare victory. He tried that with his stolen election BS.
This is absolute bullshit and it’s NOT Bennett’s fault. The entire “immune from prosecution while president” myth is not embodied in the U.S. Constitution, either express or implied. It’s a DoJ bureaucratic decision, utterly without merit and utterly unwarranted. It would be much, much easier to impeach a federal officer, including a president, if s/he were first investigated, indicted, prosecuted, tried, convicted, fined, and sentenced. It could provide, once and for all time, whether or not the absurd and grotesque notion that a president can pardon him-/herself. So very, very many voters, citizens, etc., are so enamored of royalty, i.e., political celebrities, that realpolitik has no chance to flex its muscles. They are not gods. They are just as flawed as every other person and should NEVER, EVER be treated as if they were special. Congress needs to establish in our statutes that there is no such thing as presidential immunity, neither from federal nor from state law.
They are in the “checks”.
Extremist conservatives believe that it is never the correct time to prosecute, or even investigate, Trump – can’t do it while he was the sitting President, and can’t do it now because he’s no longer President… they don’t care about or want to know about any laws he’s broken, because he’s their Dear Leader… and all attempts to bring him to justice are merely politically motivated in their eyes… BUT all that doesn’t apply to a Democrat President, who they feel should be immediately impeached and removed based upon unproven allegations…
Republican creedMatthew 25:14-30
The Parable of the Talents14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants[a] and entrusted to them his property. 15 To one he gave five talents,[b] to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here, I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.© You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here, I have made two talents more.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here, you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given,
Oh please, oh please, oh please…or “Let it be, let it be, let be, let it be. Seeking [laws] of wisdom, let be….”
The FBI finally brought down Al Capone on Tax evasion… Wouldn’t it be ironic?!?
@MuddyUSA – “The Constitution has checks and balances, what it does not condone is venomous hate!”
So we have a Constitutional Scholar amongst us, now, eh? Where, pray tell, in the Constitution does it not condone “hate”? And not just any old hate, oh no, but “venomous” (I say) “venomous” hate. ooooh… it sounds so subjective, which implies that only certain people (like you?) are privileged to say what’s hate and what isn’t? Perhaps you’re trying to invoke the unwritten, conservatives-only Quia Ego sic Dico (translation: Because I say so!) clause?
Gettin’ a little butt-hurt, arencha, when the empirical evidence piles up that your Dear Leader Trump, is not just a psychopathic liar and traitor, he’s a crook.
Duh? That’s been common knowledge for a long, long time. Well, to intelligent people, anyway. Oh, and the mass murderer attribute came later, with his Pandemicide body count in the hundreds of thousands.
Look, pal, we don’t need to be “nice” to the crooks, liars, murderers, and traitors in high public office because they happen to have an “R” behind their name. If you wanna whine and call it “hate”, feel free while we point and laugh.
I guess it helps to have co-conspirators in Congress and the DoJ to look the other way while he works on destroying the nation, and to attack his enemies and shield his cronies.
Those co-conspirators will have their day in court, too, I predict. Then we shall see the rats turn and devour each other in a made-for-TV furball.
To parody the stupidity of the Trump followers:
“Release the Kraken!”
(AKA the full Mueller Report)
It wasn’t valid Then, either, but Twitler appointed the Crooked Attorney Generals, so they were Loyal to him.
I hope that the states that go after him, succeed in convicting him.
