    Seem to be narcissists, sociopaths or psychopaths in a lot of cases. A normal person would be a refreshing **** change of pace!

    Unless you’re half of American it seems…..

    You can’t decide someone’s punishment for a crime depending if there’ll be some upset people,  it just doesn’t work that way

    Of course it can work that way, it’s more that often it shouldn’t. Including in this case.

    BBC are reporting the classified documents trial has been “delayed indefinitely” by Trump-appointed Judge Cannon. Well, that’s a surprise…

    Justice Samuel Alito (SCOTUS) is in the midst of an impartiality row

    Flying the US flag upside down outside your home is a symbol of protest by Trump supporters and he’s drawn fire from Senator Dick Durbin, amongst others, and should recuse himself from associated cases,

    “Flying an upside-down American flag—a symbol of the so-called ‘Stop the Steal’ movement—clearly creates the appearance of bias. Justice Alito should recuse himself immediately from cases related to the 2020 election and the January 6th insurrection, including the question of the former President’s immunity in U.S. v. Donald Trump, which the Supreme Court is currently considering.” https://www.durbin.senate.gov/newsroom/press-releases/durbin-calls-on-justice-alito-to-recuse-himself-from-cases-related-to-the-2020-election-after-a-stop-the-steal-symbol-was-displayed-in-his-yard

    Clarance Thomas somehow manages not to recuse himself even though his wife, Ginny ‘release the kraken’ Thomas is a prominent Stop the Steal campaigner who directly lobbied the Whitehouse to overturn the election results.

    Won’t happen in either case as the code of conduct that federal judges are bound by in terms of having to step back from any case they have personal involvement or interest …. doesn’t apply to members of Supreme Court. Pretty much non of the safeguards or duties accociated with holding public office apply to them. They don’t have to recuse themselves from anything, they don’t have to declare financial interests and donations, non of the measures apply to them as they are all irrelevant –  because they can’t be sacked.

    What you can be sure of though – if Trump is elected…. the the second he’s elected, Alito and Thomas will retire for no reason other than to allow the Heritage Foundation to install the youngest two maga-patsies they possibly can. Until then they’ll drop heavy hints about retiring – Thomas in particular – becuase every time he talks about how hard being a Judge is and how horrible life in politics is more of his mortgages magically pay themselves, and another relative gets their education paid for and another massive free motorhome turns up at his front door. He will of course be just as well looked after for throwing the towel in next year.

    As one trial reaches its conclusion the next starts to warm up…..  Turns out even more classified documents were found in his bedroom at Mar-a-largo, discovered by his  lawyers 4 months after the FBI bathroom raid and Trump staff had been scanning them and keeping copies on their own laptops. Mar a Largo staff had been instructed by Trump to avoid security cameras when moving the boxes of documents around the resort

    The Trump campaign is currently trying to fundraise off the Documents case and has seized upon a bit of small print in the original search warrant that states the FBI are authorised to use ‘deadly force in appropriate circumstances’. It standard text in any warrant but trump is spinning it as specific to him and  as Biden having hired the FBI to assassinate Trump.

    It does however explain why Trump smells bad and has been unable to keep his eyes open in court – he’s been dead since August 2022. Because in his email to donors he states ‘They were authorised to shoot me. I nearly escaped death

    The last two years of his campaign has been one long Weekend at Bernie’s

    Nikki Haley has announced that she’ll be voting for Donald Trump.

    She’s stopped short of exhorting her supporters to vote that way too and says that “Trump would be smart to reach out to the millions of people who voted for me and continue to support me, and not assume that they’re just going to be with him.”

    It isn’t over yet…

    The nut jobs in Congress are proper lining up behind this FBI Mar Lago  assassination thing. Soooo dangerous.

    Same wording used on the warrant to search Bidons premises 🤷‍♂️ It won’t matter to the Magadonians though 🤦🏻‍♂️

    I’m assuming that when he’s found guilty next Friday he’ll just appeal so won’t actually be jailed immediately?

    leffeboy
    Full Member

    I think you are correct and i don’t think there is the tiniest chance he will ever be jailed.  I’m guessing that the timing of all of this is just to keep him tied down in court cases and to fill the news with negative info. about him.  Remember it is never about convincing the people who have already decided, it’s about moving the swing voters.

    Trump only has himself to blame for the timing of the trial, he’s used many delaying tactics and that’s why we’re finally having the trial now.

    So 34? Charges he’s going to be found guilty on a at least some of them

    He will cry witch hunt & appeal & claim that he’s exonerated

    Will it change much though?

    Nope, dickheads will still support and vote for him, same as our dickheads in this country will continue to support and vote for Sunak/starmer

    Indeed he will stand in front of the press and claim unfair and illegal trial.

    Those who he aims this for will lap it up…

    What’s going on with that massive fine he couldn’t pay a few months ago? I know the amount of bond got reduced, but was still pretty spicy.  Did he raise it?

    DickBarton
    Full Member

    Not heard anything else so I’m guessing he paid it from his own float as it was manageable…plus his last attempt at getting a bond seemed.to prove disastrous so suspect he is too ashamed to go with begging hand round them all again.
    No real idea, just my naïve thinking…

    How much is this farce costing? Everyone knows he’s never going to prison and his fanbase is too delusional to think he could ever be guilty of anything. The very best outcome is that he drops dead from the stress of it all.

    What’s your point caller?

    There is a chance he could get a spell in prison – there’ll be appeals and it won’t sway his core voters, but it is a real chance if convicted.

    And if he carries on ignoring court orders someone will get bored of fining him

    I think he’s correct. No outcome where he walks away free, capable of being elected or incarcerated and becomes a martyr  is a good outcome for democracy and a world sanity. Basically he needs to do an Elvis – only hopefully with even more humiliation to discredit his legacy.

    The man has done more than enough to be an irrelevance if the voting public could be trusted to vote with any decency and intelligence. Too many have proved they are incapable of doing that so sadly, so Trump needs to leave this mortal coil under his own steam.

    I would love to be wrong but I’m 99.9% sure I’m not. He’s not going to prison. If he drops dead it stops the entire clown show and no more publicity for Teflon Don. People have been saying he’ll go to prison for a crime, contempt of court, failure to stick to the terms of gag orders or for nonpayment of fines for a large portion of this very thread and what’s happened? Absolutely **** all! The man incited an insurrection and got away with it. Spends the majority of his waking life talking absolute shite and nothing of any real consequence ever happens to him. Other than being elected President and having a chance of that happening again.

    Old man, no previous convictions and a logistical nightmare if is is locked up (no prisoner governor will want him).

    No chance at all he is being sent to prison. A fine and home detention order at best.
