A story came out this morning that "someone" with connections to connections posted, "Beware the Ides of March." Cohen was to head in as the final witness (the assumption being that Trump wouldn't testify) and that that would close things out for a formal indictment by some time next week or soon after.
Bragg is jostling for position as the Georgia Grand Jury is almost done, given things were to go to them "early in March."
And of course the DOJ ought to be close with the open-and-shut documents case.

I'll believe it when I see it! I still think that it's still the opinion of national security experts, that it's not a good idea to put a former President in jail. Even if he deserves it. My opinion is, he should face the consequences of his actions, but if a national security expert has a very solid argument that locking him up would look very bad on the global stage, and the butterfly effect could screw up our strategic operations abroad, then I support keeping him out of jail.

R26 I said IF. I'm not a national security expert, so I really don't know what's best for our nation's security. But I do know that you probably don't know either. There's a good chance national security experts are going to make the final decision about whether or not he's going to be charged. This is a very special case, and their opinion matters. Maybe they believe that China could use the chaos of charging Trump to attack Taiwan. Or that Russia would decide to invade Moldova. They have stated that our enemies may make tactical decisions when they perceive that we are "distracted". Also if you still think that any justice system in the history of humankind was "fair", you need to read some books.

L'Affaire Stormy is embarrassing for the Trump crowd, so that's fun, but much better for him to be charged with the far more serious federal offenses and by the Fulton County D.A. This is apparently a complicated case to make. I'd rather have him not charged than acquitted.
Re national security: Because of his Secret Service protection, which is for life, Trump could never be in a regular jail cell and around other prisoners, even at a white collar prison. Doesn't mean he can't be convicted and confined. They could give him a wing of his own, or convert some barracks for him somewhere. After he was spared execution by de Gaulle, Petain lived out his days in some remote building where he was the only prisoner. Similar fate for Napoleon on St. Helena. This is an option for Trump, as is house arrest, although given that his house is a resort he seldom leaves anyway, that would be mostly symbolic. I think it really needs to be the former route, to make a statement.

A New York indictment does not delay a Georgia indictment. He would not go on trial in either case for several months, if indicted.
But I don't understand the NYS case. According to NYT the misdemeanor falsifying business records charges goes to a felony if it was covering up a crime, but they then cite NY election law and Trump's campaign was federal so that doesn't apply. If they say -contrary to the NYT- that he was violating federal election law with the hush money, that is a case the feds never brought and they're going to have a state jury deal with that? Seems not great.

Paying hush money per se is not a crime. But crimes can be committed in doing it. If it entails falsifying business records, that's a crime. There is also the campaign finance angle, which is a bit more debatable.
But even if so, this is very far from the worst thing he has done and more complicated legally than some other cases. I certainly hope this is not all he is charged with. There is an argument that the NY DA should have gone with the fraud case.

What are the "indictment is good for Trump" people thinking? He is facing multiple indictments and each of them could contain multiple charges?
He's going to beat ALL of them before November 2024? Or get a mistrial for ALL of them? He's going to be able to drag them all out? I agree that an indictment might not stop him from being nominated, but indictments do lead to trials and things don't look good for him. The Stormy Daniels case is the least of it, even if that's the most imminent.

|by Anonymous||reply 69||March 26, 2023 3:20 AM|
R69, That seems really unlikely though. In the documents case he is extremely guilty and it looks like they have him on obstruction. They can say "Biden had documents too" but he didn't obstruct justice. The Georgia case seems to have a smoking gun in various recordings. The charge is maybe unorthodox I guess. Jan 6 is more complicated but they may get him on that. The Stormy Daniels case is the weakest for various reasons, but it's not like he didn't do it. There is some chance he wriggles out of this or that, but everything? Yes, he can appeal any conviction and he won't be confined (however they do that, house arrest or a special barracks or wing of a prison where he can be isolated) for a long time. But as effed up as the GOP is, I don't think the electorate as a whole is going to elect a convicted felon out on bond appealing his sentence. I just don't.

There is no such thing. The moment they voted for that vile, stupid man, was the moment they showed the world who they were. That they could ignore his bullhorn hate (starting with the birther crap), is despicable. As I said in the other thread: He got the nomination in the first place the moment he targeted non-whites. Why was that allowed to happen? They ignored every other credible candidate and supported a man who couldn't tell you who wrote the constitution even if Madison himself used flashcards to explain it to that orange pile of shit. They all ran to support him the moment he put on that klan robe.
Had those "regular" Republicans had any decency, they would've written in a "regular" Republican. There is no "regular" anymore. Their platform is extremism.

Destabilize us so they can gain access to power in Europe. Now I wouldn't doubt some lobbyists and members of Congress get payouts from China for legislation, etc. But Russians are evil. They have also been using their clients like Iran and Lebanon and Syria to do damage. There was even an Israeli groups doing troll farms and fucking with our elections. Yes. But they weren't working for Israel they were mercenaries working for who ever hired them. We are so vulnerable and so porous it's embarrassing.

It's not even that he used campaign money to "pay for sex". The sex was in 2006 at some golf tournament in another state. It was hush money to buy her silence a decade later which was an unreported campaign expenditure and which business records were falsified to cover up.

"Marxist" is an awfully sophisticated word for an inbred methhead.

LOL, "Marxist". I didn't see that comment because I already have the asshole on ignore, but WTF does "Marxist" even mean when they say it? Is it a reference to liberals in govt being the ones banning books and trying to control people's bodies or a reference to "socialism" which is also preposterous since we all know it's the capitalist blue states that have to *distribute* our wealth to shithole red states full of losers without pot to piss in?

I have no opinion as yet about any other investigations or possible prosecutions of Trump but this one is completely political and bad law. It really is ethically troubling. There is a very good legal reason why Mueller and Vance (a hell of of lot more experienced and ethical than Bragg) both declined to prosecute.

R101, you're an idiot. I'm actually embarrassed for you as to how little you know about all of this. Were you the idiot who also said SDNY wouldn't take the case because there was no evidence?You didn't even understand the situation with Mueller (and Barr's involvement in that, too). Sit this one out.
