The Trump Arrest Thread!
« on: March 18, 2023, 03:49:05 PM »
 Well, as of Sat the 18th of March, he has not been arrested yet, but everyone is talking about it.
 It will be hilarious to have him as potus again, I'm gonna love it.

And an awful lot of legal eagles - including lefties - don't see any actual crime here.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

They hate him, maybe it's a modern version of a hate crime.

Elon Musk had some interesting comments:

https://twitchy.com/dougp-3137/2023/03/18/elon-musk-predicts-what-an-arrest-of-donald-trump-would-lead-to/

I don't discount them. I know I'm not the only one who gets a burr under their saddle when the legal system is used this way, even against someone I may not like. I've said it before: Many people don't view Trump as Trump in a case like this. They, like they did when he was banned from social media, or his home raided, view him as the poster child for "everyman".

If they can do it to a current or former president, they can do it (or much, much worse) to us. It's what driving people like Bill Maher, Russell Brand, and Tulsi Gabbard to red pill.

Arrested?  For what, having classified documents?

Not if you're Hunter Biden.

I thought there might have been some issue about doing it as a Presidential candidate.  I could be wrong about that.  I saw a comment about it being a misdemeanor, but I don't know.

As I understand it they are claiming that since he paid the money to Stormy specifically to help himself get elected, and not to say, keep his wife from finding out, that makes it a campaign activity,  not private.

Since he didn't use campaign funds (or declare the donation) it amounts to an illegal campaign donation and is therefore a criminal act.

Seriously.  That's what they have.

If Trump is arrested for that, I give up.
You heard it here first.
If that's all they got, and they arrest him for it, by jimminie, I'm voting for Donnie if I have to write it in!

What gets me is that the Democrats/Left are SERIOUSLY discounting how 50% (or more, if you are a believer in 2020 election fraud - doh...) of the population feels about the Donald. Frankly, I don't like the sumbitch, but then again, I've hired lawyers that I didn't particularly like either.

Now he is walking it back. I'm not sure what is going on but he still sucks. He is still better than the current incompetent administration but that is not saying much.

Trump's major downfall was when he said he would drain the swamp... That got the folks really riled. Mustn't right-size that bureaucracy... Nope. They're the government, and they think they can't be fired.

Nancy Pelosi is having conniptions about Trump claiming he'll be arrested.

https://news.yahoo.com/pelosi-dems-calls-trumps-arrest-195458976.html?fr=sycsrp_catchall

I guess she thinks it's his duty to STFU and accept whatever dems do to him. Or else - as deposed Speaker - she's trying desperately to pretend she's still relevant.

I'm pretty sure Pelosi's insider trading carries a bigger criminal penalty than what Trump is accused of. I'm not sure some of these dems realize that what is good for the goose is also good for the gander.

Just like Pelosi’s regarded *expletive deleted*it the news on at the restaurant we were at had their commentators frothing at the mouth that his announcement was an attempt to “incite insurrection” just like “January 6th”

I'm seeing a lot of that. As well as "civil war 2" and "we have nukes and the army to take care of these rednecks".

I will say, just to play Devil's advocate and look at all the possibilities, that part of this might be a publicity stunt for Trump, who seems to be way behind DeSantis in the primaries.
