Trump releases the Kompromat he has on SCOTUS as retaliation.

I don't seeing either happening though.

The Republicans were fools for not voting for impeachment in 2021. I tried to tell that to my newly minted Representative, and she had some fluff about him going away anyway as Biden takes office. This has played out just how I expected it would to this point.

If Trump is on the ballot, it is a coin flip as to whether he gets back into office (even with 10 million less votes).

Sure hope you are correct rurallib Feb 7 #1
