Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Donald Trump is facing increasing legal scrutiny in the crucial battleground state of Georgia over his attempt to sway the 2020 election there, and that heat is now overlapping with investigations in Congress looking at the former president's efforts to subvert American democracy.

Nothing will happen. Sorry, I hate that as much as the rest of you, but somehow white guys like Trump don't pay for their crimes in the United States.

He still has enough money to pull an Enron and fake his death just before trial

trump couldn't fake his death for more than a couple weeks.

He can't stand not getting attention.

And the evidence against trump in georgia is so solid I don't see him not getting charged.

Trump is not smart enough to keep his big foot out of his mouth.

The fact that he was so specific about the number he needed to claim a win, plus 1, was a dead giveaway that what he was asking Raffenburger to do was more than just a mere suggestion to take another look. Trump was asking him manufacture votes . . . as in, or else!

Willis can look forward to a major tongue bath from Trump's foul mouth.

It's called pulling a "Kenny Boy" Lay.
Comedian Bill Hicks also pulled this same stunt.

Charging Trump means WW III. Including domestic terrorist attacks.

If they were afraid of that war they would not even investigate him.

If they want to win that war they have to be at least 98% certain of conviction.

If you strike at the Prince, you must kill him.

The DOJ now pretending they are going after Trump is a joke. They have had plenty of time to build a case but they haven't charged him or anyone else. The reasons are obvious, their courage is laccking. Charge him, prosecute him or shut the hell up. Our Justice system is as alow as a glacier unless it is prosectuing a young, left wing war protester that they know the majority of stupid Americans hate. The government of the Unite States is now, and always has been, a very conservative body adverse to prosecuting conservatives. Think about the prosecutions which should have happened when J. Edgar Hoover was head of the FBI but didn't happen. Nothing much has changed. Our law enforcement bodies are still dominated by right wing crazies. We still have a DEA even though it has been proven to actually prevent a reduction in drug abuse. Law enforcement, itself, is the problem. They don't prosecute those who they see as heroes. We need a thorough cleansing of our Justice Dept. and all of its agencies. Until we get one they right wing will dominate law enforcement.

Here's the simple way to bring this matter (and the orange fascist's 2024 dreams) to fruition: DOJ should go after any and all Trump operatives based in Georgia. Those folk, if indicted and facing jail time, will talk a blue streak about their demented leader. The result will be a chilling effect for those who might otherwise want to join future political campaigns (read: criminal conspiracies) for L'Orange Fascist in 2024. No one in their right mind will want to tie themselves to a millstone that is Trump, if his actions cause these individuals to take the fall. When Donnie Fail runs again, he will reach out for experienced political actors, and if all he can hire are college interns, mental patients and Bannonesque slobs and drunkards, his political machine will drive itself into a ditch prontodente...

The longer Georgia waits to prosecute Trump, the closer he is to announcing a campaign (or potentially even being President again), which opens up a host of arguments he can make to grind the case down to a halt.

These acts occurred 9 months ago. Does Georgia wait that long to charge other criminals?

DOJ wont do crap. Biden picked a coward to run it.

Biden and Garland were the wrong picks to save america. They're 2 old white men who are in denial about the state of our country, who think it can be repaired by being nice to people who want to destroy us.
