38. I'm not sure I understand the point of this question.

I have a feeling most of us here don't think those thugs should "ever be permitted to occupy any governmental office from dog catcher to POTUS." If all you're asking is whether we agree on that, my answer is yes.

If you're looking for anything beyond a statement of "Yes, I agree," I'm at a loss. Regardless of what we want to see happen or what we think "should" happen, it's not like there's anything concrete we can do about it. Whatever is going to happen regardless if our personal opinions. Even those of us who believe the DOJ is eventually going to do something are aware that they are going to do whatever they're going to do when THEY are ready to do it, and not one second sooner.

I will therefore say "Amen" to your "Hell, no!" and then I will go back o waiting and watching and hoping, because I see no other course of action open to me.
