    All that matters is whether or not McConnell and his Senators want to stop Trump from running a second time.

    They have power of the current president, no question there, but the subject of ex-Presidents is not mentioned in the constitution.
    After his term ends Trump will no longer be President.
    It’s all contingent on how much McConnell chooses to fuck him. He’s the real power in the GOP.

    Also the trump campaign in court never brought up anything about fraud. Doing so has a harder bar of evidence to hurdle and so went out of their way when pinned down by judges if they were claiming fraud declined to do so.

    I'm not saying they should have. I'm just saying that the Supreme Court would still need to work with established precedent. I find it hard to expect they'll be doing him any favors unless whatever case he brings is something truly far fetched enough to not be covered under some sort of precedent.

    I think he's saying don't expect them to do any favors when they couldn't even look at a fake case, they won't look at any case, cause they don't need trump or his base, they're set for life.

    In a further blow to Trump, as some here predicted, Bill de Blasio has announced NYC will be cutting all contracts with the Trump Organisation.

    @cubby will this have any effects on the civil cases that are being prepared by the attorney general of NY state against the Trump Organization?

    He almost almost sounds presidential and but the speech is a little too late (Very late). 6 dead because of his rhetoric.

    wow, if he had more speeches like that, he would've coasted to a 2nd term pretty easily.

    At the very least he wouldn't have been impeached today with speeches like that. BUT in a few hours it'll leak about how pissed off he was at having to make this one, and how much he regrets it.

    I mean, the only need for such a speech is if the President involved has wrecked the country and is now wondering how to escape the flaming destruction he’s left behind. So no, he wouldn’t have coasted to anything. Because this speech doesn’t change who he is and what he does. He’s a cunt.

    Then when prodded on exactly what you want, you opted to shitpost your way out of it.
    I'm just saying he could urge the powers that be to do things sooner rather than later. There is nothing more to discuss if you're going to be confrontational.

    But, you don't want him to even do it in the first place, showing just how disingenuous you are being. You tried to blame Biden for this happening in the first place, when he's not a part of the process, at all.

    When that blew up in your face, you decided to move goalposts, and blame him for something Mitch Fuckstick McConnell chose to do. So tell me, how does he "urge" McConnell to move faster?

    If McConnell can flip the bird at Trump and get away with it, it's a safe bet that Biden will receive the same...assuming McConnell bothers to acknowledge him to begin with.

    I doubt it the political class basically thinks has outlived his usefulness unless he has something to offer them post presidency even the SC will turn on him.

    Oh, you meant impeachment? Yeah, being impeached after you leave office is a lot like being deciding on dessert after you've already left the restaurant.
    Hey you can always stop for ice cream in the way home.

    And post-term impeachment and conviction means he can never again hold federal office.
