Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, July 04, 2022

While Trump has most notably spent the last 18 months denying his 2020 election defeat, despite clear evidence he lost, he's not the only one. During this election cycle, candidates across the country have refused to concede -- even in races that are not remotely close.

"We didn't lose. We just found more fraud"

That's what Trump will be saying (again) in 2024.

Tina Peters, a perfect Republican echo chamber. I don't suppose the word "indicted" had anything to do with her loss, did it?

I wonder if "indicted on all counts" will work to defeat Trump in 2024?

Your comment raises an interesting question...

If a newly-elected President is indicted for a crime, what happens?

"If a newly-elected President is indicted for a crime, what happens?"

Nothing if he's already been re-elected. Which is one of the reasons he's busting his ass to get back in.

I keep thinking about what the words "The FBI has opened an investigation" did to Hilary Clinton just 11 days before the election.

Now I wonder what the words "Trump has been indicted on all counts" would do to his election.

Just like in Hillary's case, timing is everything.

I wouldn't be surprised if that's the plan. At least I hope it is.

A better option would be if he was already indicted and on trial but that's a long shot because going to trial is going to be months in the making what with all the delaying tactics that are sure to follow.

Evidence- and fact-free fantasizing (Roodles calls it "theories") is the m.o. for the yokelized GQP.

I think Trump is hoping that if he announces that he's running in 2024, that the DOJ will be forced to stop their investigation because they're not supposed to interfere with political campaigns. Perhaps he forgot about Hillary in 2016.

Trump is still a private citizen throughout his campaign. The DOJ does everything on the q.t. so influence isn't likely there.

Keeping in mind, of course, we can never discount that "accidently on purpose" leak thing.

Plus, the MSM has eyes and ears absolutely everywhere.

A HUGE lopapalooza bombshell a couple weeks before election day would serve Trump right after what he did to Hillary.

Like a Grand Jury indictment on all counts, for example.

I'm afraid that Trump would campaign off of that, telling the MAGA crowd that this just proved his point that they (anyone not paying homage to 'the Donald') were after him all along. If nothing else, he would fund-raise off of this just to provide him with 'escape' money in case he does lose the election.

Only the Republican primaries? Well then, their elections and results should be held off until years of investigations into this matter are completed.

"Only the Republican primaries? Well then, their elections and results should be held off until years of investigations into this matter are completed."

Trump already tried something similar to that and FAILED in his usual grand fashion.

There's nothing in the Constitution that allows for a "holdover" of an election while a candidate fights a court battle. In other words, "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time."

Inauguration Day is carved in stone.

You is either in or you ain't.

Fools do love fool's errands (LOL ~ Giuliani).

It's the courts who don't suffer them lightly.

The boy (or girl) who cried wolf. Monkey see, monkey do. Choose your cliche. They both fit.
