What will Trump do in the end?

We all know this is coming to a head. In the end there will be indictments, perhaps in several jurisdictions: NY, GA, and Fed.

Perhaps in NY, some of NY assets may get confiscated. But if convicted in GA and on Fed charges, he faces real jail time. So what will he do? Will he hold out for plea deals where he ponies up money? I can't see him allowing himself to be incarcerated.

So what will he do? Will he flea to somewhere the US has no extradition treaty, maybe Russia? Will he pay Putin to let him buy a nice dacha in the country?

so when the movie, "The Trump Insurrection" comes out

Who should play the roles for Guiliani, Princess Ivanka, Meadows, Ted Cruz, and Trump of course?

So what's the REAL reason that Manchin and Sinema won't allow a filibuster careve out?

Surely it's not really about preserving the senate tradition. That reason is BS. Why do you think they are participating in the GOP obstruction to suppress the vote?

it's all that dark and corporate money

We simply must outlaw all that dark and corporate money. It's goal is to minimize the taxes and health and safety rfegulations of corporations. Why do working people v ote against their own interests? Because the oligarchs and corporations fund vast propaganda messaging that people of color will replace them, and women will no longer be controlled by men, and guns will be taken away, and public schools will teach children to be socialists, and churches will pay taxes, and Jews will run everything etc etc etc.

Canada no longer allows corporate campaign contributions. We should do the same. Corporations are not people.

a reminder about Merrick Garland

Merrick Garland's investigation of Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, and the Unabomber had zero leaks before indictments, 100% convictions, and no turnovers on appeal. So there's hope yet that we'll see the liar in charge do a perp walk yet for conspiracy to foment an insurrection.

Is there a fed statute of limitation on conspiracy to foment an insurrection?

just curious, because it seems like it's taking forever to indite the conspirators
