If Trump isn't charged and prosecuted...

...he will haunt the Republican Party for the rest of his life.
With the Republicans distancing themselves from Trump and likely soon to abandon him altogether, he will use his bull horn on social media to trash everyone on both sides of the isle. However, he will still carry the favor of the 1/3 far right wing conspiracy nuts which will continue to split their party, spouting off about how great he was and how he made everything so great again, while no one else measures up.
Like GW Bush, he will never be invited to a Republican convention again nor asked to endorse any legitimate candidate because it will be a mark of shame for so many. For a short time he will do the Trump TV stuff again, possibly another reality show, and will boast of another run for President and leading his cause for our freedom.
It will all look very similar to the lingering effects that Sarah Palin had until the slow fade comes after each personal embarrassment, but this will be much stronger than the Palin phenomenon. Fox will cover him for a while and then begin to ignore him and their will continue to be online reports of his tweets.
Democrats should be able to work with their head to the grindstone unnoticed while the Trump circus continues while occasionally throwing some fuel on the fire with investigations, documents and redactions released, and a few convictions of AGís, Secís of State other cabinet officials, aides and possibly children. To sentence Trump to prison for the rest of his life and therefore silencing him could be giving the Republican Party their cure and recovery from their own self inflicted misery. As comforting as it seems, we may need to think this thing through and not rush to the Judgement of Trump.

1. I'm sick of pardons and playing nice, taking impeachment off the table....

etc., it makes Congress look weak and it encourages further crimes.

Checks and balances, my ass. It's a good old boys network.

3. Here is the thing, no criminal laws were broken unless they start rating each other out.

That was the flaw in the mueller investigation. Flynn, Stone and Manifort had the goods to put Trump away. Now they all walk free because the kept their mouths closed.

4. Trump knows he will not win in November. He is selling pardons before he leaves office.

Rather than wait until the last week before he departs, Trump is starting now to get in as many as he can.

6. Trump will blanket pardon everyone before he leaves

And I predict he will resign a week before Bidenís inauguration, which will allow President Pence to pardon him for all federal crimes.

7. Trump will haunt the *USA* no matter what.

Am I the only paranoid around here?

I expect the shooting to start big time after the election, no matter who wins.
Trump has been playing it cool about civil unrest, but what about immediately after the election?

So there is no scenario where Joe wins and the investigation just proceeds as it should.
More like Joe wins, but lame duck Trump has a little over 2 months to settle scores.

8. No you are not the only one that fears a lame duck Trump and Barr

He wasnít bound by any law for his abuse of power through this term and he certainly will not be bound by any regulation as a lame duck.
Perhaps what is best for the nation is to go into a covid 19 lockdown until inauguration with all government offices closed.
He may still be able to burn down the Whitehorse because there isnít anything in the constitution that says that he canít, but hey, isnít that the price we have to pay for freedom?
Even Barr sees their hand picked stooges beginning to revolt, even SCOTUS, and the Joint Chiefs have taken a few steps back, but Trump and Barr canít pull off a coup by themselves.

9. No. I can only see one favorable end to this all.

And it's not something I can mention here for fear of being banned.
