Yeah, so like, don't bring up the name "Trump" in any context ever if you're in the Pacific Northwest unless you want to get an earful of idiocy. Serves me right for interacting with people IRL. And don't try to bring up antisemitism on the left either unless you want unsolicited opinions on Israel.

It's great that the GOP is finally playing hardball with their ads, but lets face it, Ocasio-Horseface is so not-current-year. They should be making ads out of Spoony instead. :lol:

Just wait. We might have a whole new round of literally shakings when the #bluewave crashes.

I would be so happy. I have never enjoyed something as much as this presidency.
It actually made my life worth living.

Oh oh! Some Manafort lawyer is spilling some beans or something...

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/08/ ... ial-764866

If Trump didn't know, he can¨'t be impeached, right?
The trial doesn't actually involve Orange Hitler in any way. It's simply about some monetary niggershines Manafort is supposedly guilty of, and even then the Deep State retards are having big trouble even making a case against him. :lol:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08 ... lings.html
The federal judge presiding over the fraud trial of ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort rebuked Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team repeatedly on Tuesday, highlighting potential vulnerabilities in the first prosecution arising out of Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe.

The 78-year-old Reagan-appointed judge, T.S. Ellis, sent jurors out of the courtroom several times as he reminded prosecutors that Manafort is not on trial for simply having a “lavish lifestyle.”

Ellis also surprised the courtroom late Tuesday, saying, “I’m hoping to finish this case much sooner than anyone predicted.”

The trial had been expected to last three weeks. Earlier in the day, prosecutors told the judge they thought the government could wrap its case by the end of next week.

Prosecutors have introduced a bevy of exhibits and are in the process of calling several witnesses as part of their effort to paint Manafort as a tax scofflaw who failed to report money spent on luxury items — then lied to obtain bank loans when his foreign consulting work dried up.

But the Mueller team was rebuffed by Ellis when it tried to introduce photos of Manafort’s closets, filled with suits and high-end clothing. Ellis noted that those photos would eventually become public fodder for the media, and called them “unnecessary” for jurors to see.

“Enough is enough. We don’t convict people because they have a lot of money and throw it around,” he said.

If Hillary wasn't arrested for the blatant breach of National Security with full docs to back it up, what makes you think Trump will go down over something as nothing burger as this Russian shit?

I will wake when they actually arrest Trump with charges.
I'm not too worried about it. There's no precedent for arresting a sitting president and there is a strong legal argument that it can't even be done without first removing him from office and removing the president is very difficult. Even if Trump gets impeached, "impeachment" is just another word for indictment, to actually remove him from office you'd need 2/3 of the Senate to agree that he should lose his position and most Republicans are sick of Mueller already so that's not happening. To permanently remove Trump under the 25th Amendment basically requires the entire federal government to vote him out so that's not happening either.

Even beyond that, like you wrote Trump resigning (or being removed from office) makes Pence the president and then Pence would have the full pardon authority to let Trump off if he desired (this is what happened between Nixon and Ford).
