Let’s’get something straight….
America is NOT gonna come to a standstill over Donald Trump….
He’s just one ex-US Government employee….
He’s been charged with crimes in New York City and will be arraigned for more crimes in Miami Florida on the Federal level…
(He’s asked people to come out FOR him at his Flordia arraignment, doing his standard media operation act)
He is likely to be arrested again in Fulton County , Georgia and finally could be indicted again in Washington, D.C.
That’s add’s to Trump’s ‘going BIG’ way of operation….
Media roll out 24 hours after the Justice Dept. would give one the impression that they, the Feds are on trial.…
They ARE NOT…
Despite the noise from some rightwingnuts?
NOBODY is gonna defund the FBI or the US Justice Dept……
Does the State and Federal cops want to win?
If Trump walks away from this clean will he go after their asses?
President Biden is NOT on trial for sending the cops after ex-President Trump….
Trump did THAT ALL by himself by giving the Government, he swore to protect , the ‘finger’….
You will notice if you re-read the responses from various Republicans the last 24 hours that virtually NONE of them address the CHARGES against the ex-President….
They are carrying the water for Donald Trump’s defense that he has used unsuccessfully since he LOST his only government job on November 2020….
‘Why can’t I lie, cheat, grab women, send people to help me keep my job with violence and get away with it?’
There are over a thousand people that have been arrested for carrying the water for the New York City Real Estate and Entertainer that was able to pimp an entire political party into letting him run for President….
He still has audience in about 35% of that party he and most newsworthy GOPer’s in that party are scared shitless of admitting the guy IS a crook….
This is a bit crazy…..
They ALL KNOW Donald Trump is NOT gonna be President again….
He LOST to Biden by SEVEN Million votes NOT being under criminal charges in four places like he is likely to be going into next years primary session ‘s….
Yes, indeed these will spectacular Donald Trump Entertainment events that the media will place in daily boring detail….
Yes, that will carry the water for Trump and Republicans against the prosecutor’s and the ‘Government’...
Yes, they will feature legal talking heads that will point to the ‘LAW’ something Trump has no use for and will try to bury in nonsensical rants….
When the camera’s are gone?
And it gets quiet….
One Donald Trump IS going on trial for his ‘sins’…..
He’ll have company ….
But the Feds and the DA’s ARE hanging the law and the way the system’s work on and against him....
And you know what?
Donald J. Trump breaths and shits like everyone else….
He wouldn’t be the first President of a country to be convicted and sentenced for crimes other’s have served time for….
Could the Big guy pull down a political party with him?
Will it’s member’s WTF up and jump ship for their own political lives
The criminal indictment of a former president who happens to be the leading Republican aspirant for the White House is unprecedented territory for the country. But it’s perhaps more important that this is unfamiliar terrain for Trump as well, and he has not prepared properly for the ordeal.
The biggest practical difference between civil and criminal prosecutions is that remedies in civil cases are financial penalties or injunctions. This is the padded playroom in which Trump has cavorted his entire professional life. To Trump, lawyer fees, monetary punishments and court orders — when cases come to that — are just the costs of doing business. Trump’s legal guru, Roy Cohn, taught him to draw out civil cases, wear the other side down, and never give in, a catechism that still guides him today. As Zirin puts it, Cohn taught Trump to counterattack; undermine his adversary; work the press; lie, lie and lie again; and even in the case of a loss or forced to settle, claim victory and go home….
Inside his own bleached skull, Trump must now be imagining that he can run out the criminal clock too, just as he did in so many civil cases. His trial dates are months and months distant. It would be a legal miracle to try all the cases — both filed and prospective — before the 2024 election. He must figure he can retake the White House, which, depending on what the Supreme Court says, will give him leverage to postpone his trials. He might also believe that Ron DeSantis will pardon him, which DeSantis has not ruled out. (Presidential wannabe Vivek Ramaswamy has already committed to a pardon, so Trump has that going for him.) A self-pardon has never been tested, but Trump could theoretically take that route and negate federal convictions upon returning to the White House. But he’d still be on the hook for the state offenses, which are not pardonable by the president.
A normal person would not assume they could win all four or five (or however many) criminal cases. A normal person would never put all his eggs in the single basket that says, “Win the White House, Get Out of Jail Free.” A normal person would never count on DeSantis to deliver. And a normal person would never find himself in this pickle. But Donald Trump is not a normal person.
The Cohn rules have taught him lessons that seem to be pointing to his final undoing….
