Daily Kos: Federal judge warns that Trump could be in yuuuuuge legal trouble

Surprised no one has mentioned this, but earlier this week, a federal judge fired a shot across the bow of the crybaby from Queens. In the midst of telling one of the Capitol rioters that he was going to be in jail for awhile, that judge delivered a sobering warning to Trump—he could potentially have to answer for his role in the horror of Jan. 6.



On Wednesday, federal Judge Emmet Sullivan dealt with the case of Jeffrey Sabol, a Colorado geophysicist who is accused of grabbing a D.C. cop’s baton, then using it to attack another officer, among other things. Sabol went back to his home near Denver, fried all of his devices, then made his way to Boston in hopes of fleeing to Switzerland. But when he saw cops there, he rented a car and tried to make a break for it south. He only made it as far as the outer suburbs of New York City before being arrested. That escape attempt was enough by itself for Sullivan to deny Sabol bail.

"To be sure, to what extent President Trump's words and actions led to the violent and shocking storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 is an important question, and one that could still have legal consequences for the former President and his prominent supporters," Sullivan wrote, citing a civil lawsuit against the former president. "But President Trump's culpability is not before this Court."

It’s not often that you see a federal judge use this kind of language about an incumbent or former president. The fact that Sullivan pointed this out at all is a sign that Trump is in very real legal jeopardy. The only question is if and when his reckoning will come.

2. I think more like "if"

Because it seems like Trump has committed all kinds of crimes he could be charged with, but he never is.

3. Some patriot, this Sabol schmuck

First he drags a police officer down the stairs and helps another asshole beat the officer with a flagpole during the insurrection, then plans to flee the country to avoid extradition for his crimes.

This is a geologist who specialized in "sophisticated environmental cleanups of Superfund sites and removal of unexploded ordinances at federal testing grounds," according to the NY Daily News. And he threw his life away for a pathetic loser and a hateful ideology.

Too bad he didn't go ahead with the suicide attempt before joining the terrorist mob on January 6th.

7. What Amazes Me

is these folks seemed so ready to do whatever it took to keep their dear leader in power. Now they are looking at the very least some type of criminal record they will be carrying around for the rest of their lives. Meanwhile, the person who inspired the insurrection rests comfortably in his Mar-A Largo estate with only the barest of hints that he will ever suffer any meaningful consequences for what he did.

A geophysicist from Colorado admitted to authorities that he was “in a fit of rage” when he dragged a Washington, D.C., police officer to be viciously beaten by a man with a flagpole ...

The suspect, Jeffrey Sabol, tried to kill himself sometime after the riot and also bought a plane ticket from Boston to Zurich ...

“He has the financial wherewithal to flee these charges” ...

The prosecutor said authorities have reason to believe that Sabol may “have assaulted another police officer” with a baton that he is seen wielding during the riot ...

6. "I am not responsible"

This is what he says to every accusation, and for some reason it works every time. The accuser moves on, or the legal system looks the other way. He skates every time. I find it bizarre.

9. Maybe the Jeffrey Sabol, a Colorado geophysicist, should find some time to

look at who Judge Emmet Sullivan had in his court room, one comes to mind one Lt General (Army) that just forgot to register and mention he was a foreign agent and then there is this quote:

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/18/judge-tells-michael-flynn-you-sold-your-country-out-at-hearing.html

So Sabol in closing I think they should throw away the key and Sullivan hasn't forgotten about Trump.........
