He's not going to jail. They are not gonna "Lock Him Up".

He's going to fly away to Mar-A-Lago and never be heard from again.

His lawyers will handle that stuff just as they always have.

And his judges will handle the rest.

I think the IRS is a little more determined than that. I bet they want their 100 million dollars back. That's a very good incentive not to just let him walk away. And I bet they want to collect that BEFORE he pays off those 400 million in loans or goes bankrupt. (Yet again.) They also have some excellent leverage:

Ivanka was a Trump employee when he paid her $700,000 as a consulting fee. There's no reason to pay an employee as a consultant, unless you are evading taxes. Not only Donald could be indicted for this, but so could Ivanka. Now the question is would Donald plead guilty and take the blame in a deal for his daughter's freedom, or would he flee and toss her under the bus?

I'm thinking the whole family skips town to Argentina just after the election. Mar-A-Lago is way to dangerous with Democrats running things. He would always be looking over his shoulder.

The problem is that, I think, he is not all that rich. He has, literally, hundreds of suits raining down as soon as he leaves office. He will also not have tax dollars available to pay the 20 or 30 attorneys he is going to need just to keep up with it all.

He will be, basically, screwed. i guess he could do a go fund me but that won't work because he would have to admit the truth which is, basically, he has been a failure in just about anything he has ever touched but has also been clever and crooked enough to weather that - until now.

If he leaves office he will be well and truly screwed. Then again, he does have supporters like the White Nationalists (groups like the Proud Boys fall into that category) and they have been wanting a civil war for a very long time!

This whole scenario is going to play out over the next six months.

On January 20th he will board Marine One for the last time, he will fly to the airport where his private jet will be waiting for him, and he will fly home to Florida with his Secret Service detachment.

And that will be the end of it.

Melania and Barron will move to their house in Maryland.

Don't ya'll worry about Trump's future, he's gonna be fine.

As long as Florida remains in Republican hands, they will not extradite him to face trial in NY.

Will it be a book or a movie .... Greatest Con Job in History ... just a nod to his narcissim

Florida's Governor Ron De Santis(R) worships Donald Trump like Christ on a Cross.
Florida will remain safe if Trump fails to win re-election.

Christ on a Cross

Is that some sort of a Florida County Fair delicacy?

On January 20th he will board Marine One for the last time, he will fly to the airport where his private jet will be waiting for him, and he will fly home to Florida with his Secret Service detachment.

And that will be the end of it?

If you can personally guarantee that Iíll send you a huge Oregon rack of lamb. Pronto!

He would only have to be extradited from Florida for another state's crimes. For federal indictments, the FBI just arrest him. They don't need to involve state or local police. Actually, even at Mar-A-Lago he would have a Secret Service protection squad around him. Given a federal warrant, they would turn him over to the FBI agents.

or AG Barr could pardon him ... grin

yep in an extrapolation of the Barr theory of unitary executive branch, it would extend to the DoJ

these folks know no (was that really a no no?) limits of the law ... just a part of fascist nature of Trumpism.

I can personally guarantee it. I think the most abnormal thing we'll see when Biden takes the helm is that Trump won't attend the inauguration.

Between now and then we will see shenanigans. There will be sound and fury aplenty.

But Joe Biden will win and become President in January.

Donald Trump's taxes will no longer matter to Americans.

And life will go on...until it doesn't.

Rest easy, Ken, it's all gonna work out fine.
