Nicolle Wallace Bombshell: Trump Only Running For Re-Election To Avoid Indictment

Nicolle Wallace Bombshell: Trump Only Running For Re-Election To Avoid Indictment


Wallace said on her show Deadline: White House, “The impending end of Robert Mueller’s investigation may be just the beginning of the legal battle between Democratic lawmakers and the Trump administration over what potentially incriminating evidence should be made public in the Russia probe. That looming showdown combined with the possibility that Mueller will spin off untold federal investigations that could threaten the president and his family, make up a new legal and political reality not locked on Donald Trump. And according to a fresh report from the daily beast, quote, Donald Trump signaled to his inner circle even he knows special counsel Robert Mueller finishing his investigation will be a new beginning, not a dramatic end for trump world’s eclectic legal health scape. It includes Rudy Giuliani, he didn’t want his lawyers going anywhere, even after the Mueller probe ends. The conversation served as a private admission that federal investigations bedeviling his first term in office will be haunting him for possibly years to come. The table is back. Betsy, I understand his chief motivation for running for re-election is to avoid possible indictment and legal jeopardy.”





Avoiding Prison Is The Only Reason For Trump To Stay In The White House

Donald Trump has made it clear that he hates being president. In 2017, Trump was chatting with some friends after a round of golf when he said, “That White House is a real dump.” Donald Trump tantrumed through the government shutdown that he caused because it kept him from going to his private club in Florida. Trump is spending most of his time as president sitting around watching Fox News, tweeting, and talking on the phone.

Trump hates being president, but his motivation for wanting to keep the job is that the moment the next president is sworn into office, former president Trump could face a criminal indictment on a wide variety of charges.

This president is only interested in saving himself, and his one clear path to avoiding prison involves winning another four years in the White House.

30. Last Fri a guy on Chris Hayes said that the SDNY will be there waiting for him.

Elie Mystal, Above The Law, said that the SDNY will be able to nail tRump and his kids and possibly his grandkids (he joked) but his point was that the Southern District of NY has so many tRump crimes they can charge him and his family with that his only chance of delaying the inevitable is getting reelected. Also, no pardons will be able to be applied to the SDNY (Manafort and Kushner will be in this group too). This made me very happy to know. No pardons apply to the SDNY and the statute of limitations is not a problem. He even said that "the SDNY is like syphilis to tRump since it will never go away and will make him crazy".

Now the questions are WHEN he will finally get nailed, not IF and WHO will be nailing him and for WHICH particular crimes and WHAT will the punishment be? He is going down and so are his kids. SDNY will take care of them, even if Mueller doesn't. He is toast and he knows it. He should pray that he drops dead from a stroke since that will be his only way out. Order another bucket of chicken, moron!

44. The SDNY is federal.

SDNY prosecutors are federal prosecutors (it's part of the DOJ) and deal only with federal crimes. They are not pardon proof. This seems to be a common misconception on DU. Prosecution for state crimes would come from the NY Attorney General.

45. Mystal graduated from Harvard Law

and said on Chris Hayes that the SDNY will always be there to get him on crimes that Mueller isn't investigating. Why would Pence pardon him for crimes he hasn't been charged with? I think this is how Mystal sees the big picture going forward.

70. Plus, Rachel reported a month or so ago that there can be secret indictments that can be

stopped at this time, then reopened when he is perp walked, so basically, there is no statue of limitations. It's some special procedure that the feds can do.

40. Hmmmmm....

I must disagree with your conclusion. I hope to hear a variety of ideas from the various candidates through the primary process and the voters will decide who will become the nominee. Preferring, supporting or backing a candidate this early on is hopefully due to the ideas the candidate had provided which are closest to those of the voter. As it all moves forward and the field is narrowed hopefully we will continue to align ourselves with the candidate that most closely matches our views. In the end there will be one nominee and that will be the decision of the process and the voters. Who that is remains to be seen, but I will vote for that candidate when the general election rolls around.

48. Can you not understand? The SDNY is the FEDERAL US Atty. in Manhattan, no state prosecutions.

You are getting them mixed up with the NY STATE attorney general or other state prosecutors in NY. THEY (NY STATE attorney general or other state prosecutors in NY), not any federal prosecutors, will handle state criminal violations, which are not pardonable by a president. Based on news reports, state criminal violations are expected, and again, they will be prosecuted by NY state prosecutors, not federal.

As for the SDNY, that office prosecutes ONLY federal crimes, which ARE pardonable by a president. Trump could issue pardons in advance of any possible indictments (like Ford did with Nixon) that would cover any federal crimes committed to that point. That would end any prosecutions for anybody pardoned by Trump, except for crimes newly committed after the date of any pardons.

Guess where all that $$$MONEY from his 'rallies' goes to? Re-Election? Nope, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr, and Trumps Legal Expenses. Ok, so maybe some of this is to avoid Indictment, but to be honest, more and more is coming out about the fact that Sitting Presidents CAN BE INDICTED.

53. Another reason that a 'sitting' president should be indicted. Would anyone with a rational mind...

leave a serial sexual predator in place for another 4 years without charging them with a crime? The damage to the American brand is worth it, that the presidency is not some ticket to criminal mischief or breaking the law without consequences.

This was surely not ever intended by the framers of the constitution. Never.

Also, hates being president and faces indictments if he leaves office doesn't ring true...pence would pardon him for the federal crimes, and as for the state crimes, I don't know. I suspect some of them would be thrown out due to the state not having the authority to prosecute the crimes, but some of them would stick perhaps.

56. Well, of course he is. That's been apparant since February 2017.

So many of Mueller's actions, i.e., turning over parts of the investigation to the Southern District of New York, for example, which have filed (apparently) sealed indictments presumably naming him, could be deferred for several years beyond his presidency*. He's going to have to be removed physically from office. He will never leave it voluntarily. Every day he remains in place, he is able to whittle away at the norms of this society. He will consolidate his power more and more. He plans to hunker down for the rest of his mortal existence in the White House. Something must be done. The rethug led senate is allowing this to continue and will do so to enable them maintain a vice grip on rethug rule in perpetuity. There will be noting left for this country that isn't in the pockets of all their megabillionaire friends - of whom they wish to join their ranks.

58. The first campaign was a grab for a 'get out of jail free' card...

why would that change?

59. Love Nicole, but that ain't a bombshell

Simple GD common sense, I have been saying this for over two years now when people put forward their beliefs that he won't run again ...

And, I have been saying for a long time now, that by the time the race heats up, he and the conservative media brainwashing media will flat out state it.

60. This has been painfully obvious from the start.

He almost literally can't leave the office.

61. Maybe. But immediately after election, he started running for re-election.

Even before any investigation. His team put together his re-election campaign team, starting fund raising. His rallies were geared for it, from the start.

66. He will lose the election, be indicted, convicted and imprisoned.

All he's doing is delaying the inevitable for a few months. But since Idiot cannot think past the next 5 minutes, that's totally predictable.

69. Indictment and legal jeopardy?

 

Those should be the least of trump's worries.

We used to hang fucking traitors like trump in this country.

71. Once he's no longer president, he can't pardon Junior, Jared, and his favorite, Ivanka.

Nor can he pardon himself, which he seems to believe is possible (with the SCOTUS he's put in place, that might be true).

I don't know how the statute of limitations factors into this.
