Exactly! How stupid do the Trumpers think most people are to try a defense of “I got caught planning the crime before I was finished committing the crime so I can’t be guilty.”
Rob Rogers’ example of a bank robber is excellent. Bank robber bursts into the bank, points an assault-style weapon at the tellers and yells, “Everyone hit the floor” and tells the teller to fill his bag with cash. But the guard on duty shoots the gun out of his hand and quickly slaps the cuff on the would-be robber. The robber never got the money. He got caught before the crime was committed. So in Trumplandia, no crime.
In like vein, a common occurrence is when a would-be terrorist, school shooter or someone trying to hire a hit man ends up (unknowingly) working with an undercover FBI agent who plays along all the way to providing dummy weapons, explosives, whatever. There was never any chance the crime would be completed. The hapless, incompetent, would-be terrorist or criminal still gets arrested and prosecuted.
In the case of Trump and Ukraine, Trump illegally solicited help from a foreign head of state to help rig the upcoming 2020 election. To those who say, “Just wait until the next election,” NO — TRUMP IS TRYING TO RIG THE ELECTION (AGAIN) and solicit a foreign government to help him (again).
We can’t wait for Trump to finish stealing another election to stop him from stealing it.
