I agree. No matter the crimes, it's a high bar to indict and then convict a former president. Lonestarblue May 2021 #12
But the crimes being investigated have to do with his business practices before CousinIT May 2021 #17

Time and time again we see these people in power get away with everything. I just frankly hold very little hope that there will be any consequences for his behavior. Been down this road before. Fitzmas anyone?

As much as I would LOVE to be proven wrong, I have zero hope that he will ever face justice.

Our system is pathetic.

Respect for the office overwhelms respect for the law, perhaps even when the most corrupt person in history occupied that office under a questionable election.

he was POTUS (and during), no? Since that has nothing to do with him being POTUS but rather his private business enterprises, then his having been POTUS *shouldn't* come into play, it would seem - but that isn't to say it won't and I have no idea how this crap works (not very well it seems).

I get 99% of us will dance thru the internet if he is indicted, but don’t think a majority of voters will.

But, that all depends what charges might be. If they find dead bodies or similar, that could change.

I do agree it SHOULDN’T matter.

Even if Trump isn't eventually indicted it's good to know Mr. "Lock Her Up" is going to be sweating bullets the next 6 months.
