1. Lucky for him the IOKIYAR rule always applies so nothing can or will be done

Leaks ... and/or shit they could use in November I'd imagine.

2. I just said almost the same thing on another thread

When it comes to the massive government cleanup needed after 4+ years of unprecedented neglect and corruption, there is just so much to be done - made even more complicated and difficult since so many accomplices and enablers are still there!

3. TFG should've been impeached like every 3 months

I am with you in your feelings sister

4. That's the thing!

I have thought more times than I can possibly count what difference it could have made if only TFG had been removed when he should have been - after the first impeachment hearings! Initially, I had been naturally thinking of this catastrophic pandemic, but now there's the destruction and damage of the insurrection and all the rest of the damage that occurred in that devastating year. Granted, we still would have been dealing with Republicans, but those changed from just being obstructive Republicans and turned into something much worse and more dangerous under Trump...

5. If it was a Democrat they'd have impeached him over Stormy Daniels which came out way earlier

Saying that being involved in an illegal scheme where his consigliere goes to jail in order to help him keep a sexual scandal out of the news in the 2 weeks before the election ... makes his victory invalid because the public had a right to know, etc, etc, etc.

Even if they'd failed get the Dem removed by impeachment, the entire RW spin machine would've hammered him relentlessly his entire term, calling him fake and demanding his removal constantly.

6. Oh, good grief!

Both Reagan and Rockefeller were initially viewed with some derision because they were divorced - and not even recently. I remember that and found it damn hypocritical that, with the strict standards they set for everyone else, that the former guy's blatant disregard for cultural norms in his personal life, his blatant dishonesty in financial dealings, his obvious disrespect and disregard for our armed forces, not to mention his lies and sheer ineptitude - any one of them, let alone the combination, made it abundantly clear from the beginning that he was totally unfit for any public office, let alone POTUS!

7. Who signed off on the warrant?

Last edited Fri Jun 11, 2021, 11:59 AM - Edit history (1)

A Federal judge? Someone within DOJ? Barr? Cabinet official?

Asking because it's not like there wouldn't be a high hurdle, and someone went there.

Update: This OP saying it was a grand jury subpoena. Still leaves a lot of questions in my mind anyway.

9. Turn about?

And exactly when will the current DOJ sub the phones and computers of Trump, Gaetz, Johnson, the rest of the republiqan ilk? Especially those who visited Russia in 2018..on July 4th!!!

Probably the day after the 2022 or 2024 elections! Or the day before the new republiqan Junta is sworn in.

Oops! we was jest busy 'n had other thins ta do! So sorry! We'll git rite on it!
