and I haven't actually seen anyone say that Democrats are deliberately setting themselves up for failure. The truth is, MF45 along with his corrupt family and criminal associates are working to obstruct and block. Also continuing to commit crimes. Openly.
They have help from complicit republicons. Who are almost certainly their co-conspirators.
Someone is paying the lawyers, we all know MF45 doesn't pay his bills.
The thing missing is the sense of extreme urgency from too many on our side. EVERY democrat needs to be as urgent, or more, in delivering justice to them as they are in avoiding it.
The shop-worn scolding about us failing to "be patient" has gone on long past its expiration date. While it's likely true that indictments will follow completed investigations, they have all committed a multitude of crimes that are not related to each other and they SHOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED for. An arrest on something unrelated doesn't interfere with an investigation. Would a murder suspect expect to drive 100 mph, shoplift, write a bad check and not be arrested for those things because of the murder investigation? Hell no! But that's exactly what is happening with the MF45 crime empire.
Here's something else that's past its expiration date. Unless I missed something, the obstruction statute of limitations against MF45 expires this month. Mueller left a clear road map for prosecuting MF45, with the only thing stopping him being his statement not to prosecute a "sitting" president. MF45 is no longer "sitting".
No charges, and no explanation. And if the clock hasn't run out on that yet, there are only a few days left in the 5 year SoL.
That's why we're impatient. Democracy is being destroyed right in front of us and there is little or nothing we can do but vote, and they're working to make sure we can't even do that. It is not wrong at all to be impatient, and in fact, terrified at the future we can see being shaped.
We all want to see them convicted, but the clock is ticking, time is not on our side, and "being patient" may well equate to counting a lot of chickens that never do hatch.
So that's why many people feel like this guy:
I look for your threads, and nearly always agree completely, but I think you are a little off-target with this one.
