Just finished watching the first half hour of 'Trumps Insurrection" I'm having trouble curbing the flow of curse words flowing through my head and into my mouth. Anybody else want to comment on this pig **** ****?

Comfort yourself.

This seems to be going in to a long decline...

A garish display... which will surely reveal the fading aura of the Donald on multiple fronts !

Yes, he still has his adoring MAGAchud fans.

But then, not everyone was happy with his 'performance'...

From: https://www.rawstory.com/donald-trump-ohio-rally/
Dozens of people walked out of a rally in Ohio over the weekend as former President Donald Trump was speaking...."Mr. Trump's speech — low-key, digressive and nearly 90 minutes long — fell flat at times with an otherwise adoring audience," the report added. "Scores of people left early as he bounced from topic to topic — immigration, Israel, Speaker Nancy Pelosi's protective mask."

https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/06/documents-show-ivanka-trump-didnt-testify-accurately-in-inauguration-scandal-case/

Quote
During a December 1 deposition—in which she swore to tell the truth—Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of Donald Trump who was an executive at the Trump Organization before becoming a White House adviser to her father, was asked if she had any “involvement in the process of planning the inauguration.” She replied, “I really didn’t have an involvement.” Ivanka testified that if her “opinion was solicited” regarding an inauguration event, she “would give feedback to my father or to anyone who asked my perspective or opinion.” And that was as far as her participation went.

But this wasn’t accurate, according to the documents, which indicate she was part of the decision-making for various aspects of the inauguration, including even the menus for events.

Lying under oath can get you thrown in the slammer.

I hope I'm wrong on this but I don't think anything will happen to him.  He got away with so much, I will believe it when I see it.

There are certainly reasons to be pessimistic... there is not a good track record of dealing with white collar crimes, and Trump has managed to openly flout many norms with no repercussions.

But, there is at least some reasons for hope... sometimes white collar crimes DO get prosecuted (for example, Manfort went to prison, and Stone was convicted). And many of the protections Trump had in the past (rules against indicting a sitting president, a friendly DOJ and senate preventing legal challenges, and before he was elected a lack of scrutiny) no longer apply.  And Trump has lost legal cases in the recent past (e.g. Trump university), so he's not invulnerable.

The main roadblocks in seeing Trump face actual justice are 1) the chance he might die from a cheezeburger-induced heart attack before going to trial, and 2) a desire by politicians (even democrats) to "protect" him because they wrongly think a conviction of a past president would harm the reputation of the office.

Well, the charges on Thursday may only target the Trump Organization (as a business) and CFO Weisselberg. But, there is a very good chance that the prosecutors will use those indictments as leverage for further charges against others (including, I hope, Trump.)

Remember, the grand jury is scheduled to run for several more months after this, you have to expect that the prosecutors in charge expect more than just a few early charges.

Agreed. If I was Trump I would be worried. He could face jail time from what I'm hearing. His CFO could face potentially 105 years over 15 counts of fraud etc. Looks like the former White House is crashing down. Qu'ell surprise!

Where are you seeing 105 years ?  I haven't see this.

15 felony counts each of which could carry a 7 year sentence. Unlikely it will come to that but he's no spring chicken so we will see if he flips on his former boss to seek a way out.
