The media narrative IS that Donald Trump’s show WILL continue unabated and just COULD ‘trump’ the law?
Some of us do NOT think is gonna work…
Some Republicans either….
If and when Trump gets to a conviction? (Or convictions?)
Where does ‘his ‘party go?
If Trump is the nominee?
Does ANYONE think American voters , on the whole, would vote for him to become President….AGAIN?
No one wnats to go this far, but I am….
Donald John Trump is NOT gonna come out clean after a possible 4 or 5 criminal trials, stretching over the next year…
At some point?
Republicans ARE gonna HAVE TO step away from the guy, or go down the toilet in the 2024 Elections…
And in doing so earn the wrath of a angry Trump, who would NOT be thinking of anything but HIMSELF, not his adopted political party…
GOPer’s have been warned in last November’s Midterms….
Many other Senate Republicans are trying keep their party from becoming engulfed by the tumult surrounding Trump, which they see as a political drag heading into the 2024 election.
McConnell in November said Republicans failed to win back the Senate because the party was associated with “too much chaos” and “too much negativity” that “turned off a lot of these centrist voters.”
The Senate GOP leader usually plays the role of the adult in the room at moments if political crises. He’s tried this year to keep the national spotlight on President Biden and his policies instead of Trump-related drama’s….
And the campaign is working to turn the case into pressure on Trump’s primary rivals, forcing them to take questions about Trump and risk the blowback of offering anything less than full-throated support. In particular, the campaign has ramped up attacks on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), Trump’s top competitor in early 2024 primary polls. He took his biggest swipe at Trump so far on Monday by distancing himself from the New York case’s lewd circumstances, even as he attacked it as politically motivated….
But advisers privately acknowledged many potential pitfalls. The campaign has not worked out the logistics of simultaneously mounting a presidential run and facing a criminal trial — possibly more than one, with ongoing probes in Fulton County in Georgia and under Department of Justice special counsel Jack Smith. It has never been attempted by a candidate from a major party.
Whatever plans the campaign does make could be swiftly upended by the candidate himself, as on Saturday when he surprised his own groggy advisers by announcing on social media that he could be arrested as soon as Tuesday. The campaign is separate from Trump’s legal team, and the two are not always acting in concert, advisers said. And the candidate is not always taking advice from either team.
The Trump campaign is aiming to position the potential prosecution as the latest politicized “witch hunt” targeting the former president. This will amount to an attack on all Republicans that forces everyone to pick a side, unifying them around him as the leader before they have the chance to review the allegations in the prosecutors’ case….
In simple terms?
Donald Trump IS betting he can beat the cops by using the crowd’s….
Just as he tried and failed to do on Jan. 6 , 2021….
Romney and Cornyn both declining to comment on potential Trump indictment and House GOP probe of DA.
“I don’t know anything about it, other than what you guys report,” Cornyn said when I asked about his view of a possible Trump indictment, as he walked into a hearing room
