Trump on Trial

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I imagine. I hope she's made of sterner stuff than Jack. My opinion on Meadows' immunity.
viewtopic.php?p=191040#p191040

I probably should have used this thread, but wanted to stress that he's a traitor of the first order.
LOL, guess we're a little all over the map. In fairness to us, there's a lot of shit to keep track of.

Ex-Chief of Staff Mark Meadows granted immunity, tells special counsel he warned Trump about 2020 claims: Sources
Meadows said Trump was "dishonest" on election night, according to sources.


On behalf of the sane, honest and patriotic minority in NC11 I'm appalled. Our shame could only have been alleviated by imprisonment, and convicting ancient and unhealthy TRE45ON isn't worth letting Meadows skate. He was complicit up to his eyebrows, and even published a book after leaving the WH that was full of the same election lies that he now conveniently rejects. Surely a guilty plea could have been extracted, or there is enough evidence to convict P01135809 without Meadows.

NOJackNO!
Idk, I'm assuming Jack is a lot smarter than I am and probably has his eye on a bigger prize.

I don't think the DOJ is allowed to collaborate with Georgia but there's a possibility that while Mark wants to talk to Fani, maybe with what she already has she's not chomping at the bit to talk to Mark.

It's also interesting that nineteen codefendants is being whittled down to a more manageable number.

Thinking that was part of the plan.

Why not? State and federal prosecutors and LEOs communicate all the time, including on which will prosecute who and when. MAYBE Jack granted immunity because he knows that Fani won't. Fingers crossed.

Trump legal news brief: Trump hit with partial gag order after he attacks judge's clerk

Might a contempt citation put P01135809 in jail sooner than anyone predicted? Fingers crossed. Or, would Judge Arthur Engoron (bio) stick to fines?
Rich people always get fines, don't they?
-0-? I see contempt enforced on TV shows more than irl, not counting journalists who refuse to reveal sources. Jail would be an effective form of ending the hateful spewing, though.

Colorado judge paves way for trial on whether 14th Amendment disqualifies Trump from office

... The ruling Wednesday from Colorado District Judge Sarah Wallace clears the way for an unprecedented trial to begin next week, to determine if Trump is disqualified from returning to the White House because of his role in the January 6, 2021, insurrection.

This is the fifth unsuccessful bid by Trump to throw out the Colorado case, which is one of several pending suits trying to derail his candidacy based on the 14th Amendment.

The 14th Amendment, which was ratified after the Civil War, says US officials who take an oath to uphold the Constitution are disqualified from future office if they “engaged in insurrection” or have “given aid or comfort” to insurrectionists. But the Constitution does not spell out how to enforce the ban, and it has only been applied twice since the 1800s.

In a 24-page ruling, Wallace rejected Trump’s argument that questions about his eligibility should be handled by Congress, not courts. She also rejected Trump’s argument that the Colorado election officials don’t have the power to enforce the so-called “insurrectionist ban,” which is enshrined in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment....

Stable genius update.

It's 3 A.M. Do you know where your ex president is?

He does keep repeating himself. Maybe he thinks nobody heard him the first fifty times?

So according to trumpian logic, having ones fingers crossed is a legal defence.

So if you have to enter the value of your car on a legal form, you might have a statement that the value is a "best estimate as of today" so as to protect against being accused of lying if the actual value turns out to be a bit different. But - NOBODY, probably including Trumps minions really believes the number you filled in could be substantially off. No way is a garden variety F-150 worth $150K.

Good one. I guess slapping the Trump name on something is supposedly like gold-plating it :roll:

So, according to trumpian logic being the bigger :crybaby: :crybaby: :crybaby: is a valid legal defense.

trump stormed out of the courtroom.

When is someone going to call him out on his antics?
Trump: “We had the safest border in the history of our country - or at least recorded history. I guess maybe a thousand years ago it was even better.”
