    I am looking forward for the battle between the Manhattan DA, the Georgia DA, and several different DOJ prosecutors over who gets to have the first perp-walk of the trump in chains to his different trials.

    I know that the trump is kind of looking forward to a perp-walk becuase he thinks he can use it to solicit more funds out of the poor fools that support him. That ay be true, but most of the electorate, I believe, are still in favor of the rule-of-law and equal justice for ask convicted criminals.

    It will be interesting to see how the trump himself reacts when his illusion of wealth and power is finally seen by everyone as the optical illusion of smoke nad mirrors tha it actually is. I imagine that once a narcissist's shield of presumed wealth and power is taken away, they will have a major emotional reality to deal with.How will the trump deal with it?

    If there are charges to be brought, of course they should bring charges.

    However, let's not forget the "T is being arrested on Tuesday" was released to the press by T. He said that, not anyone else. And he's been raising money based on that comment.

    Never one to pass up the opportunity to swindle folks out of their money!

    I am amazed how long justice takes to happen in the US whenever it is someone rich and powerful like Donald Trump getting sued or prosecuted. I mean, how much more evidence would any prosecutor or judge need finally put the guy behind bars? He literally called for his supporters to illegally protest Congress to prevent him from leaving office! Come on, lawyers! Prosecuting Trump should have been a walk in the park, man!

    When he is found guilty, all his presidential perks MUST BE RESCINDED.  He is a traitor to our country.  He tried to make us a dictatorship, for God's sake!  We must not allow a traitor to receive a salary, Secret Service protection, free postage or whatever benefits a true president would have.  On January 6th, and afterward with the stolen documents, he relinquished any rights to be treated as a former president would be - WITHOUT A DOUBT!

    And isn't it wonderful to see how the Fox News hosts TRULY FEEL about their audience?  Amazing how so many can continue to show their ignorance by still watching them.

    I find it interesting the Catholic Church calls Biden stupid and does not understand the Catholic faith? Is it that he understands the separation between church and state, the dark ages, the crusades that started wars and hate, the threat of national Christianity to democracy, or that this country was founded on freedom and not on religion!

    Of course Trump needs to be locked up, but this is not about him. This is about speaker Mike Jones. At first, I was really happy to hear that Johnson finally saw the fight and they need to aid Ukraine against its fight against a dictatorial Russia.

    I had wondered why it took him so long to see the light and why he let so many people die in Ukraine while he was looking for that light, sadly I have now found out it's because he thought that it would eventually directly affect his family since his son was excepted to the Naval Academy. He was worried quite rightly that his son may eventually be forced to fight against Russia after it expands from its takeover of Ukraine. It is really pathetic that someone just can't stand up for what's right until they find it's going affect them. I hope this is a lesson to him in the future that people die while you're postulating in BSing to please a bunch of right wing morons in the Congress, who could care less about people dying or American freedom i.e. Taylor Jones, and her group of Putin lovers who are complete and utter anti-American  idiots.

    Trump's an idiot, a pig, and a lier as a sex offender. Lock him up!

     Now on to the speaker of the house, Mike Johnson, I didn't think he had it in him, I'm pleasantly surprised. Marjorie Taylor Green has just proven to the world that she's a Russian communist sympathizer. I wonder how her constituency feels knowing that they are enabling Russia. How American can you possibly be?  Lock Taylor Green up also

    "Court considers which past Trump actions can be brought up at trial"

    I don't know if it's true or not, but I have heard that he's fighting against allowing testimony that his mother felt he soiled his pants far too late in life.

    It's always somebody else's fault……

    Trump Media, the parent company of the former president’s Truth Social, alerted Nasdaq Inc. on Thursday of what the company suspects is illegal activity driving down the price of its shares.

    LOL it couldn't possibly be that it's just a crap product run by a man that's a complete idiot who has never ceased to fail in a business and venture.

    Trump ran 6 businesses that declared bankruptcy because they couldn’t pay their bills. He is the consummate professional at tanking a business. What an idiot take some responsibility put on your big boy pants. Admit that you're a loser Trump and get out of the way and let this country get on with it.

     Matt Gaetz attended 2017 party where minor and drugs were present, woman's sworn statement obtained by Congress!

    So it seems Matt may really like to party down with little girls and drugs.

    This is the face of the Republican party today. These are the Republican leaders, but what else would you expect from a party that's led by a man, Donald Trump, who is a convicted sax offender!

    Apparently, a conspiracy theorist Maxwell Azzarello set himself on fire at the Trump trial. This is just the kind of person Trump targets people with mental issues like Mr.Azzarello. It's Trump's target audience where he can spread his BS to those susceptible to it most. Trump is a disgusting example of, I can't even call him a human being. He's just plain disgusting. Lock this idiot up and let this country move on back to some sanity.

    Trump files, emergency appeal to move trial to his own home and have his family be the jurors! This is the next headline I expect to see as this weasel Trump does anything he can to slow down justice. The man is a convicted, sex, offender convicted business cheat to be a wire over 36 courts across this nation and that's the tip of the iceberg. Lock this idiot up let this country move forward. 
    his next gambit is so obvious he will pull all his stock out of his failed Internet venture and let everybody invested in it hang while he takes their money. That's what he does. He's a user. He's a liar. He's a cheat and it's been proven in court time after time.

    L O L Trump complains in his hush, money / falsifying business records trial that he's not allowed to speak!
    What he's actually not allowed to do is threaten people involved in the trial or lie about people involved in the trial or threatened the relatives of people involved in the trial.

    You see for Donald Trump speaking is lying and threatening people. That's his normal course of the day, he's a liar whiner and a manipulator; if he can't do that he doesn't know what the hell to do. Let's get rid of this idiot let's lock them up and let's move this country forward, he's a waste of space and one of the worst thing that ever happened to the Republican Party and the country at large.

    What people think - Politico-IPSOS poll on Trump trials, and breakouts by Democrats, Independents, Republicans, and opinions have not changed much from August 2023 and March 2024. Convinction will mainly effect 1/3rd of independent voters.

    "Three in five Americans say they think the federal trial on Donald Trump’s 2020 election subversion case should take place before the presidential election in November, levels that have held steady since August 2023, according to a new Politico Magazine/Ipsos poll. The poll also finds that a plurality of Americans believes that Trump, if convicted, should face imprisonment over just probation, a financial penalty, or no penalty whatsoever."

    "The poll also finds that Americans’ opinions on several of the indictments Trump is facing, including the federal 2020 election subversion case, the sensitive document case, the falsifying business records case, and the Georgia 2020 election subversion case, are highly divided by political identity. That said, the poll finds that over half of Americans believe Trump is guilty in at least one of the four indictments tested, levels that also vary widely across party lines."

    " More than a third of independents said a guilty verdict would make them less likely to support Trump’s candidacy. In a close race, that might matter."

    " A whopping 70 percent of the country rejects Trump’s claim that presidents should be immune from prosecution for alleged crimes they committed while in office. Less than a quarter of the respondents, meanwhile, said that they trust the Supreme Court to issue a fair and nonpartisan ruling on the matter."

    " This poll was conducted from March 8-10 and had a sample of 1,024 adults, age 18 or older, who were interviewed online; it has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points for all respondents. This is the third poll on the Trump prosecutions that POLITICO Magazine has conducted in partnership with Ipsos since last summer."

    "Fifty percent of respondents said that they believe Trump is guilty of the alleged crimes charged in Manhattan."

    " the number of people who said that they believe Trump is guilty here was nearly identical to the results when we asked respondents to consider Trump’s guilt in his other three criminal cases — the Justice Department’s prosecution in Washington over the 2020 election (49 percent said he is guilty), the department’s charges against Trump in Florida over his retention of classified documents (52 percent: guilty), and the Fulton County District Attorney’s case against Trump in Georgia over the 2020 election (49 percent: guilty). These numbers also roughly track Trump’s unfavorability ratings among the American population."
