Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 19, 2022

With the first full week of hearings for the House select committee's investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol now complete, nearly 6 in 10 Americans believe former President Donald Trump should be charged with a crime for his role in the incident, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds.

The problem with not charging criminals like Trumpy and holding him accountable for his actions is that it emboldens him to continue committing more crimes.

Trumpy and his hateful followers are a clear and present danger to our national security.

Now the question is ... what will we do about that?

For as much as I and many others would like to see Der Dotard in an orange onesie, the application of asymetric tactics will probably be what takes this guy down. Tax evasion, business fraud, conspiracy to defraud a bank all seem as likely as any charges that might be made by the DOJ after the 1/6 hearings are completed...

After Watergate, Americans who voted for Nixon had the luxury of lying about it.

Now, because of social media, that luxury no longer exists for many. So, Trump voters have dug in their heels and are pretending they did the right thing by supporting an authoritarian semi-literate gameshow host.

Charged with a crime? What crime exactly?

For his role in the incident? What was his role exactly?

ABC comes up with "6 in 10 Americans say Trump Should be Charged for Jan. 6 Riot"

Then look at the partisan spread in the details. This is a bunch of smoke.

I think that Trump will be criminally indicted before the midterms, starting with Georgia.

It is starting to seem inevitable that Trump will be indicted. There is just too much glaring evidence of his culpability for nobody anywhere to indict him. Maybe Georgia. Maybe the DOJ. But I think it will happen.

No, I'm saying today you'll be hearing from Raffsenberger(-sp) and more excerpts from the call to Georgia. A prosecutor's favorite witness is a taped recording.

And for the record: what's your reaction to the losing candidate calling the guy responsible for counting and reporting the votes demanding they find an additional 11,780 votes so the losing candidate wins?

More to the point...if that's not illegal, what is?

"If you strike at the Prince, you must kill him". That's Machiavelli and entirely true.

I agree completely that Trump can go free. It's always been a possibility. But today....Well, today it looks like he may very well be indicted.

That will be a great day. All of your Trumpites are of course welcome to defend the cause of barbarism as you've always done.

If Trump gets in again, he won't leave office again unless he's carried out.
