I already feel sorry for Joe Biden's future Attorney General

The amount of scandal and crimes that will be investigated from Trump and his minions will be earth shattering. Barr could even be prosecuted for gassing peaceful protesters. The attorney general may need to appoint 2 special prosecutors to cover all the crimes that has happened. It'll take 2 years at least. There'll be some HUGE decisions. It's a shame what Trump has done to this country.

2. A special Prosecutor for all of his

senior advisers, cabinet members, and each of his family members... traitors, scamers, law breakers to a person.

4. I know we're all supposed to hate him, but

wouldn't it be fun to have James Comey appointed special prosecutor, just to add to His Lardship's consternation?

5. I am guessing

he'll need to appoint about six to handle the workload.

6. For some potential attorney generals....

.... it will be akin to winning the lottery.

7. Don't think so.

Trump will issue a blanket pardon to just about everyone if he loses in November...except those who betrayed him of course. Sure there will be some disbarment's, etc. But Biden's Attorney General....should he win...and lets not get over confident about that....won't have anything to go after. And going after a former President, has been a line no one has been willing to cross.

Even then, I wouldn't be surprised if Trump resigns shortly after the loss and Pence assumes power...and not because he wants to, but under pressure from the GOP who doesn't want the public display of trials of corruption that can last for years....pardons Trump, knowing full well that's the end of his political career.....but he will get a very cushy lobbying job in exchange.

11. Can't they only pardon if someone is found guilty? What would they pardon him for.

Are you talking Pence trying to give him a blanket pardon for all crimes he may have committed in the past but has never been charged with?

13. No, Ford pardoned Nixon for any crimes he *might have* committed

but was never charged with.

16. And that's pretty much it.

Any crimes while committed as the President, known or unknown...swept under the rug.

Now that hasn't been challenged in the Supreme Court...but lets not go believing in dragons, unicorns and moral hard right Republicans. The Supreme Court is going to find some technicality and punt it into the next century.

Some decisions take balls/ovaries of steel...and the Supreme Court sometimes delivers....and some decisions take jumping to the like of Felix Baumgartner of out of a balloon. Just not going to happen.

8. Plenty of good candidates, although I doubt Barr, trump, etc., will

be prosecuted. Not saying they aren’t deplorable, just they won’t be prosecuted.

14. Agreed

Prosecuting previous administrations is not what new administrations do. Nor should that be their business. I think the Trump administration is the only one who would try (unsuccessfully) to cross that line. And they’ve come close a number of times.

It surprises me (though not really) that, at this moment in time, this is what this thread is fixated on. I think the Justice Department should be spending as much time as possible addressing the issues of social justice that we are all so consumed by at the moment. Cleaning up nearly 250 years of this country’s racist institutions should keep them quite busy.

15. Exactly. It would set a bad precedent to go after previous admin. BUT,

if there were ever one that deserves it, it’s trump’s.

Plus, I think any jury panel would include at least one ignorant white winger to hang the jury. Plus 2, most of the “crimes” are immoral, unfair, deplorable, hateful, etc., that probably wouldn’t hold up in courtroom.

The ultimate trial occurs November 3rd.

Finally, if someone does manage to convict one of these A-holes, I’ll dance in celebration.

17. Trump will pardon them all on January 20.

 

On the other hand, he may get so pissed about his loss, he will let them wither.
