Yes, be very patient. Because this investigation, like all the others, will prove fruitless.

You have a lot more faith than I! The Dems to continue to prove they are up to screwing up. I think it may have something about their inability to take advantage of Republican messes as they don't feel its fair to them kindly Republicans? Then, again, perhaps its their competitive nature and their fear that the Republicans may be more screwed up than they are?

The interesting thing about the 14th Amendment, Section 3, is that Trump does NOT have to be convicted to be ineligible. All they have to do is convict ANY of that mob of insurrection. Trump "gave aid or comfort" to them when he said "they were special people and he loved them" after the attack. So even if only the a-hole who killed the Capital Police officer is convicted for insurrection, Trump is banned from office.

But of course, countless tweets and statements by Trump make it his insurrection more than anybody. Just like being named as unindicted coconspirator #1 in Cohen's trial says he is as guilty as Cohen.

Somebody in the legal pundit-sphere pointed out a huge liability for Bannon: By accepting Trump's pardon he has to admit guilt. (recent Supreme Court decision) So when he gets sued in civil court, he's already admitted he did it!

All of these things take time, and AG Garland has not even been sworn in yet. We need to be patient,

I think, under section 3 he has to get sued and convicted to prove the fact for this to kick in. I have, however, no doubt that will happen.

Everybody that Trump has given pardon to must now agree to give evidence. No more constitutional rights they take the pardon they are now fair game - ALL of them!

Trump isn't going to run again so the point is moot.

He's only in it for the money and he doesn't need to be elected to fundraise. He will rule the MAGAverse from Maralago.

I suspect you might be right about his not running. His own sister said that months ago. The good news is that Trump supporters are starting to abandon that fold. Still, the man lives in his own reality and, in that reality, he just might run to prove some kind of point?

Hopefully he leads a whole bunch of folks down his garden path to nowhere, for a long time before it all fizzles out. He still could decide to depart the country if thing get too hot for him. Federal agents can arrest him any time in Florida. Only states need extradition to get fled felons shipped back.

Georgia seems to be proceeding briskly with a grand jury investigating the election fraud stuff. Raffensperger and Governor Kemp may want to refuse to get involved so they don't get dragged into it.

I keep getting sucked into watching the 'investigation' into the capital riot. They just keep saying secretary of defense (appointed) and the Secretary of the Army for making sure the response was not immediate which would have been normal. So, two Trumpies made sure that nobody seriously interrupted the capital riot. They also seem to not be able to get either one of those to testify.

One has to wonder. Have they fled, are they refusing to testify for congress and congress is unwilling to send the master of arms out, with police, to bring them in to testify? If they do testify one can only wonder if they mention their Lord and Master. Right now, their so-called investigation has defined one simple thing - NOBODY was in charge as these two refused to allow anybody to be in charge and do their jobs!

I am, for one, really sick and tired of Democratic investigations which can't get people to testify and do nothing about it. They have the power, they can force the testimony, but they just natter on accomplishing approximately nothing.

All the more reason not to get sucked into watching it.

Nothing will come of it.

Go watch LiZiqi. Put some of those drops under your tongue.

More important battles are being fought. Looks like the minimum wage hike is going to fail. Biden has been speaking to Bernie regularly and he appears to be mostly in line with progressive ideas. But it's gotta make it through the Senate to happen. This is only the first of many battles, each one designed to make Republicans look like your skinflint landlord.

In the fullness of time as it were...
