Will trump End Up In Prison?

Will trump End Up In Prison?
http://www.smirkingchimp.com/node/96249

The Biden administration on Thursday laid it right out in the open.

When Trump 2016 campaign chairman Paul Manafort was passing secret polling information about swing states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania to Konstantin Kilimnik, as is laid out in the Mueller Report, it was part of a very specific and successful effort on the part of Russian Intelligence to help put Trump in office.

This was the data they would have used to have troll accounts and ads target individuals in those states via social media, particularly Facebook, to both suppress the vote for Clinton and encourage voters to show up for Trump and other down-ticket Republicans.

This is not the first time a Republican candidate for president has committed treason to get into the White House. In fact, it's been the norm since 1968, and therefore it's time to seriously discuss a 60-year problem we've had with treasonous and illegitimate Republican presidents.

America must stop giving criminal Republican presidents a pass. Every GOP president since Dwight Eisenhower used treason or deception to come to office (or inherited office from one who did), and it needs to end. It's a truly astonishing and horrifying story.

One can only wonder how much better off America would be if six Republican presidents hadn't stolen or inherited a stolen White House and used it to put right-wing cranks on the Supreme Court and other federal benches.

snip//

America has ignored GOP crimes to seize and hold the White House long enough. It's time, at long last, to put this one in prison.

2. Probably not, but he might end up broke and shunned,

which would probably be at least as hard for him to take as prison.

I'm not counting on him ever going to jail, and this would be the next best thing.

35. The article used 1968 as the starting date for its claims.

1968 was after Eisenhower's time in office.

38. OK, I will bite again.

We have had three Democratic administrations, now a fourth, since 1968. How come none of them have prosecuted the highest crime we have? The only one specifically mentioned in the Constitution.

As opposed to "including".

32. Except that is not how the word "since" is used in this context.

The person should have said either "since Nixon" or "since 1968". If that is what they believed. They did not answer my post .

26. Well, let's straighten out this picture.

1. No cuff links
2. No tie.
3. No shoe strings.
4. No belt.

No one wants him to commit suicide to escape punishment.

itís doubtful. I would have thought they would have charged him with something by now. Maybe I am just anxious for it to happen. I fear I will be disappointed.

Where's the evidence that Trump KNEW about the Russian effort?

Anything less is a continuation of complacency to the crimes committed. If any one of us would be imprisoned for such offenses, so should he and all his enablers and co-conspirators.

Too much blowback. Too many lawyers. Too much dough.

18. No.

He has too much money and too many lawyers to ever see the inside of a prison cell. He can fight it in court until the day he dies. Which won't be long, his health sucks.

He might be charged with some things, he might even be convicted by a jury, but he'll never go to jail.

24. Not a chance... in fact he might be Speaker of the House in Jan. 2023

I think if the R's take the House they will make a deal with Trump and let him be Speaker if he promises NOT to run in 24.

He'll do it... 2 years to be a dickish troll, his favorite activity.

And the GOP wins because they can run DeSantis, Haley or Noem.

28. Same jail that George W went to

Remember when everyone was convinced that W was going to The Hague, etc etc?

The reality is that Presidents and ex-Presidents wield far to much power to be sent to jail.

30. The short answer is no

And serious doubts whether DOJ has any intentions of going there. State charges? Slightly more possible -- but still unlikely to include prison sentence. So -- in summation -- slim chance vs none.

And -- it's probably about time we stopped asking questions like this -- unless there's really something to add to the conversation. And this post/string doesn't.

33. It seems the federal Department of Justice, as well

as the AG office in some states have a new branch. I call it the Bureau of Perpetual Investigation. They will investigate people like Trump until he dies of natural causes.

Just like we couldn't hurt Nixon supporters feelings
" BUSH 1 "
" BUSH 2 "


What a sham country we live in. Trump does pretty much everything but literally kill someone, he fought Covid with his lies and killed many more....

We have an America for the Rich and Powerful and one for the rest of us. I get Teargassed for protesting the first one !!!!!!
