In the shadow of the COVID pandemic, William Barr is attempting to complete his effort to corrupt the Department of Justice beyond redemption. Justice Department drops criminal case against Michael Flynn (CNN). This is not a normal process. Flynn pleaded guilty. He has been convicted. The "Department" didn't drop the case - William Barr orchestrated this to continue his process of discrediting the FBI and the Mueller investigation. I am not aware of ANY precedent for this. I wonder if Judge Sullivan will accept the DoJ's action.

Interesting idea: The (corrupt) DOJ may have dropped the charges, but it's too late for that. Flynn already pleaded guilty, and now he gets sentenced and has to serve that sentence. I would say this is just a cheap trick to spare Trump from blowback for a pardon. As for Flynn, he's better off serving his sentence. Any time in prison at all, and everybody will be satisfied that he served some time. Pardon him, and somebody will decide they need to punish him extra-legally, just to piss off Trump.

If Trump gets 4 more years, he will finish destroying American democracy. A couple of years ago I thought that this was not possible, but these days, after so many precedents that seemed to only happen in some Banana Republic and would be far-fetched to think of them happening here, did happen... so, now I won't rule out Trump will end up achieving a regime change in America like Putin in Russia and Xi in China who managed to change the laws to become pretty much president for life. Impossible? Think again. These days I think anything is possible, and no, I've never been a conspiracy theory type.

I read that one of Trump's personal valets has tested positive for Covid-19 RNA. The rest of Trump's Presidency For Life may be very short. Let's hope Pence is on his way to be with his beloved Jesus as well.

Karma....

Yes, but then Trump himself tested negative, again. I guess the man is the Antichrist or the Devil himself, and as such, he doesn't get infected with viruses that target mere mortals. devil

Trump could be on his deathbed and they would claim he's "the healthiest President in the history of the world." The only thing that would stop the carnage is his hospitalization, because then he'd take it personally (the only thing he cares about). But Bill Barr would step in, Al Haig like, and proclaim himself in charge.

If Trump dies Pence is president. If BOTH trump and Pence die then we get Pelosi as president (which would be both entertaining and interesting).

Then, what happens if Biden gets Covid-19 and dies. How about drafting the current governor of New York. Apparently he is REALLY popular!

I have wondered aloud about why Trump doesn't have Covid-19 right now. As far as I can tell he has actually worked pretty hard at getting it and Pence has too. Biden is hanging out in his basement but, eventually he has to come out too.

Oh, Trump says that he barely knew his valet, the guy who got a positive on his Covid-19 test. This is what Trump says about everybody that he REALLY knows and now denies knowing. This also means he has a really good chance of being infected!

That would mean he barely gets dressed, or barely does anything requiring the use of a valet.
It's more like "barely knew him" is the default knee-jerk response Trump blurts out any time he's in trouble.
