Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

If things don't go Donald Trump's way on Election Day, the President may face more serious matters than how to pack up the West Wing. Without some of the protections afforded him by the presidency, Trump will become vulnerable to multiple investigations looking into possible fraud in his financial business dealings as a private citizen -- both as an individual and through his company.

Don't put the popcorn away after election night (week?). There will still be plenty of life left in the Trump show.

If Trump loses, put him on suicide watch. Seriously. If nothing else, I can't think of a better way for him to still hog attention.

Biden has stated that he won't pardon Trump and that he wouldn't interfere with an AG investigation. However, who he appoints as AG will speak volumes as to what he would like to see happen with Trump. For example, if he appoints someone like Adam Schiff to be AG, it will send a strong signal that he wants Trump prosecuted.

@#3 ... Biden has stated that he won't pardon Trump ...

Keep in mind that the Presidential pardon capability is only for federal crimes.

Pres Trump is also being investigated on the state level in New York.

Here's a starting overview...

As I understand it, Gov Cuomo would have to issue that pardon.

What would a crook like trump do with the most powerful office in the country in order to stay out of jail?

So far, he's shown he's willing to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent americans. What else could he do? If he thought it would help him win, he'd definitely drop a nuke somewhere.

I just assume the Russians get him when he can't pay off his loans.

Be careful what you wish for Democrats. If you do it to Trump when he leaves office, it can be done to you out of spite as well.

Are you worried that Democrats would suddenly become deplorable like you?

Your candidate has expressed contempt for the democratic process. Democrats only want to strengthen it. We will never become like you.

No, my ignorant comrade. You don't have to worry. Only Trumpy and his Deplorables threaten to lock up political opponents like they do in mother Russia.

Whatever happens to Trumpy after he leaves the protection of the White House he has brought upon himself.

We reap what we sow.

Trumpy has sown a lot of hate and division and made some very powerful enemies.

You're right Boaz. History does repeat itself.

There's no "doing it" involved.

If any public official acts in as much of an illegal manner as citizen/Pres Trump appears to have acted, then I would want the official investigated and (if appropriate) prosecuted, regardless of party.

It amazes me that the party of law and order seems to be so concerned about protecting a possible significant criminal from investigation.

The investigations are being conducted because there appears to be significant evidence (documents and witnesses) that Pres Trump and/or his corporation have broken the law.

Trump has already said he wiil leave the country if he loses this election. A Russian sub will pick him up off Mar A Lago election night. Trump deserves to die at least 200,000 times after he pays his taxes.

Russian submarine?
Hey, nobody needs to die.

But if he wants to slip off in something long, tubular with Russian -----. Well at least he'll be gone

By now, it wouldn't surprise me if Trump actually possesses the Russian nuclear launch codes to be used in event of crushing defeat.

An ungrateful electorate must be punished!

Because it should be up to the courts. Not the president.

AND

The President should have no say nor voice an opinion on a case before the courts. He should not be trying to put his finger on the scales of justice nor in her private parts either!!

If he does not agree with the outcome he can always use his pardon powers. Except on himself. As that would place him above the law. And even a Republican Bot like Amy agrees that is just wrong.

While I personally agree with the "except on himself" part, I suspect that battle may be ahead of us.

Then there is the NY State cases. Gov Cuomo (as I understand it) is the only person who can pardon in those cases.

... As that would place him above the law. And even a Republican Bot like Amy agrees that is just wrong. ...

Judge Barrett was so deflective during the proceedings, I doubt if one could say how she might rule in a future case.

Yeah. It can be done if dems elect a corrupt criminal con man like you fools did.

If we are stupid enough to do that, please prosecute that corrupt criminal con man. I care more about the future of the country and the rule of law than I do about my team winning. You should try it.
