indictment season shifts into overdrive
Thank you Jeff!
There are still more indictments necessary for sitting members of Congress -GOP Senators who voted to oppose the Election College results -actively participating in the scheme, GOP House members who have continued to attempt to defund, obstruct, and undermine the investigations, and of course Ginni Thomas and others. Justice must ring through the halls of Congress- and all who participated in the conspiracy, insurrection, or as accessories after the fact must be expelled and barred from ever holding public office again.
My money on the sixth conspirator is either Roger Stone or Steve Bannon. Personally, I'd prefer Ginni Thomas because she is such a POS and, FWIW, I think Roger will be a lot happier in the big house than Bannon but ...
It has been commented by ex federal prosecutors that the reason why the six are conspirators and not being indicted as well is so that they cannot delay his trial. Once he corroded douchebag (love that!) is convicted, they believe the six will be indicted and tried as well. Hoping that goes for the rest of the arrogant conspirators like Brooks, MTG, Gosar, Gaetz, Bannon, Stone, Boebert, Bannon, etc.
I cheered when I heard of the fourth count in his indictment - for the first time in the past 3 years I finally heard something that spoke of me - and what I had/have lost because of his actions. I want - no, I demand that my right to be a participant in the election of our leader(s) be counted and seriously defended. How dare him/them!
His still banking on his warped constitutional right to continue his run for president of the country he betrayed, hoping a win will allow him to just make it all go away. WTAF?!?!
I’m happy that the “corroded old douchebag”, as you so eloquently stated, is finally being charged with his crimes, but I am depressed that so many still support this steaming turd of a human being. I hope that he continues to be the Republican frontrunner and that he, along with the rest of the Republican party, goes down in flames in 2024.
Trump’s trials, especially this one, will truly become “judgement day” for America. Our democracy will either survive, or not. The concepts of truth, integrity, honesty, and decency will either prevail or it won’t. If Trump wins, then the United States as we know it today to will cease to exist. And whatever the U.S. evolves into after a potential Trump victory, will be something that I’ll be sure to miss, - because I’ll move out of this country.
BTW - the end of this indictment details some pretty damning evidence, too. Late on Jan. 6th he called several people in Congress to encourage them to do what they could to delay the certification. And he asked them to contact other members, too. Remember that part of his scheme was to delay the certification and therefore throw it to the Supremes- specifically Alito who would be the next justice to hear a case - and that would drag everything out until after the inauguration - and he would remain in office.
I LOVE the way the indictment takes care of the blinded First Amendment whine still being propagated by Fox. Yes, he had the right to lie all he wanted. He could even pursue that lie into 60+ lawsuits. But that exhausted his rights. All the other guff is action, not speech.
If he is convicted and God Forbid wins the election, can he pardon himself? And if so, if a president can pardon himself, what's to stop a president from going around shooting people at random? It doesn't make sense
Perfectly said! Thank you for the short version of reading today!
Thing is, he could still win the election. That he can even still run for president is beyond understanding. And that his cult of worshipers and most of the GOP are continuing to worship and protect him. Where will this all lead? What it going to happen to our democracy? We don't know. And at this time of climate crisis, rights being ripped away from us, and an illegitimate, criminal supreme court . . .. fucking scary times.
Jeff, the way you express everything, your delightful language is such a relief to my tired eyes. We are going to see the ‘corroded old douche bag’ going to court A LOT in the coming years and that is as it should be. Hopefully, lots will be revealed about the GQP lemmings who are currently in office and everything they did to corrupt and destroy our democracy as well. I wonder if Jack Smith will be satisfied with only indicting the orange pustule or if he will follow up with going after dumbass republican cheaters far and wide? I hope so. We have to fumigate and rid our house of the vile cockroaches that call themselves the Republican Party.
Oh, the complete gloriousness of it! I haven't been this jubilant in a very long time....
And then there's this, which I posted today on Facebook: "ABSURDITY -- "Last month, a Nebraska teen was sentenced to 90 days in prison for using safe and FDA-approved medication abortion pills to terminate her unwanted pregnancy when she was 17 years old. Her mother, who helped her acquire and take the pills, could be incarcerated for up to five years."
REPUBLICANS THINK THEY CAN ARREST & JAIL A MOM & HER DAUGHTER FOR GETTING & USING AN ABORTION PILL, BUT NOT TRUMP FOR HIS MULTITUDE OF CRIMES???"
