Trump will skate. He’ll be dead before any of the suits against him are resolved.

Others (you know: little people) will pay the price.

Despite the fact the quote is not relevant to the substance, it is appropriate.

I also suspect Mr Trump will never be convicted of any crimes even though it would be clear he had committed numerous crimes. I do not believe an objective impartial jury could ever be installed. It only takes a very small number of jurors to acquit on purely political reasons for jury nullification to be successful.

jury nullification


Certainly quite likely in some of the cases. But in every jury in Trump's many trials? I doubt it. Might be a good strategy for prosecutors to file as many separate indictments as possible, so if only one out of ten juries are fair, he still gets convicted of something.

There is also the long term financial benefit for being a juror that convicts Trump. Nobody is going to want to buy a book that ends with jury nullification. But a lot of people would buy the book that tells the inside story of Trump's downfall. Villain finally punished = good plot.

There won't be juries involved. Just lawyers and judges shuffling papers, fines will be levied. penalties assessed, checks will change hands along with envelopes of cash.

Same as it ever was.

Politically it would be a bad idea for Biden's AG to pursue Trump's prosecution. In fact, any effort to prosecute him will be spun as political and used against Democrats in 2022 and beyond...

It's not worth the risk. Once he's out of the spotlight for a while his influence will wane, the desire for political revenge will wane, and the reasons for prosecuting him for his perceived crimes will disappear.

The crimes are not perceived beyond the notion of “perceived as part of perceiving reality”. However, your point is taken: There is severe risk in the US Justice Department pursuing criminal charges against FUG. Politically, it’s far better to let state AGs go after Individual 1.

The Georgia DA is following the lead of the NYC DA by bringing in the expert who wrote the book on prosecution of state racketeering crime, that appears to be much more broadly defined in Georgia. FUG should have consulted a country lawyer before trying to corrupt the Georgia election results. Maybe he checked with Rudy!

Better, yes, but it will still be perceived as a political hit.

He's basically exiled to Maralago and surrounded by armed guards. He may die before ever leaving the island. He is permanently banned from Twitter. He is no longer POTUS and will soon be politically irrelevant.

That's good enough for me.
