After Trump

When Trump is out of office, what will become of him? My thinking is that there might be civil and criminal investigations into him and what he has done in his corrupt administration. It seems established policy that a sitting President can not be indicted, only impeached.

I think that once Trump is out of office many prosecutors in some jurisdictions will be off of the leash. They will be investigating Trump and his corrupt cronies like Jared Kushner and others for a variety of possible crimes. So Trump might be investigated, maybe prosecuted at some point.

Trump's "administration" has been the most corrupt in American History. He might still have to answer for that corruption. The only figure like him in American history is Boss Tweed, who ran the corrupt Tammany Hall Political Machine in New York City in the 19th Century. It is worth noting that this formerly powerful figure in American politics ended up dying in a jail cell in New York City. So I wonder what your views are on what will become of Trump after he is out of the White House?

1. This assumes:

1) Trump doesn't prevent the election, or so grossly interfere with it (with Russian/GOP help) so as to eek out a "win".

2) Trump will relinquish power if he loses.

The odds of either of these scenarios is now disturbingly high.

2. From day one, I've said Gitmo--

For him, his three oldest, Jared, the Cabinet, Rudy, a few at FOX, some Congress-critters, and Kavanaugh. The whole Trump Mafia.

Stone, Manafort, Flynn, and even Dershowitz can join too. Let them all die in prison.

3. Nothing is going to happen to him..

Everything is going to be forgotten just like anyone else with money. If anyone wanted to "get" Trump it would have already happened. It's not like he just started being a crook. It's been known for years.

4. I truly believe

that the rich have a zero prosecution standard they have to meet.

Once you pass a certain amount of worth (real or imagined) you get to slide on any charges..

I have a Bizarro comic on my desk by Wayne and Piraro that shows a doorman opening the door at Ellis Island with the caption, "Welcome to AMERICA. Keeping the wealthy out of prison for over 200 years".



I keep it because it shows reality.

5. He's either going to disappear and live relatively quietly or stir the pot behind the scenes
