    idk, trump as paranoid as he is, maybe he'll relinquish his secret service protection because he's terrified of the deep state. He wouldn't be the first president to do so.

    It won't be a normal jail and he'll be treated far better than you or I ever would if we were ever convicted of a crime, but he'll still lose his freedom and fortune.

    His children will face a far grimmer outcome than that as well, since they won't have the title of ex-president to help shield them as Trump will have.

    You remember that Hunter Biden laptop nonsense from last month? About the legally blind computer repairman who was certain it was Hunter Biden who left that laptop behind and never claimed it that he gave to Rudy Giuliani?

    He closed his shop and skipped town. Nothing the least bit suspicious about that, right?

    Election misinformation? OANN? /shockedpikachu

    Axios: YouTube temporarily suspends, demonetizes OANN
    YouTube has barred One America News Network from posting new videos for a week and stripped it of its ability to make money off existing content after the Trump-friendly channel uploaded a video promoting a phony cure for COVID-19, YouTube spokesperson Ivy Choi tells Axios.

    Why it matters: YouTube has been criticized for allowing OANN to spread misinformation using its platform, particularly around coronavirus and the election. This marks the Google-owned service's first crackdown against OANN.

    Details: OANN's one-week suspension from posting new videos or livestreams is the result of a "strike" YouTube issued for violating its COVID-19 misinformation policy, which prohibits saying there is a guaranteed cure to the virus. YouTube took down the video that triggered the strike.

    • OANN is also suspended from the YouTube Partner Program, which means if it wants to monetize its videos again, it will have to re-apply.
    • YouTube has a three-strikes policy before an account is terminated. This is OANN's first strike, but it has violated the platform's COVID-19 misinformation policy before, meaning it gets no more warnings if it breaks the rules again — just additional strikes.
    • YouTube says it does not consider OANN an authoritative news source.

    The big picture: YouTube, like other platforms, has grown more willing to take action against conservative-leaning accounts that spread misinformation. It has also been trying to provide greater visibility to legitimate news outlets.

    • A quartet of Democratic senators sent a letter Tuesday to YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki pressing her company to do more to stem the tide of election misinformation.
    • Posting videos that make false claims about election results isn't against YouTube's rules.

    The other side: Trump and his allies have urged followers to tune into alternative news sources such as OANN and Newsmax that have questioned Joe Biden's victory, eschewing Fox News, which they feel has gone soft.

    I wouldn't read too much into it. He was probably getting harassed and death threats. It's all too common (YES, from the nutters on BOTH SIDES) these days. Hopefully we'll get to a point where someone in law enforcement starts taking these seriously so it doesn't happen as often.

    Funny, seems like the market for intentional misinformation dried up.

    Or he could be fleeing because of this:

    Della Rocca also said his office is investigating whether computer files Giuliani has publicly claimed to have taken from the hard drive existed on the device when it was handed over by his client in September.

    What he has left might not be much because I read earlier Deutsche Bank is looking to foreclose and seize his assets as well now that he lost.

    At the very least, I read Deutsche Bank is getting ready to drop Trump as a client. Decided all the bad PR he brings them isn't worth it or something like that.

    I could not agree with you more Themius, the horrifying number of people who were somehow ok voting for the Trump Crime Family (aka Racist Death Cult). And I return to a common theme, I see no way to fix this in the United States.
    Well,

    It is what the numbers show, if you compare the senate voting results vs the votes for president. I also recall some conservatives being outraged about it on social media during some deep dives analysises of the recounts in which they noted that a lot of people had voted republican for Senate but Biden for president, which they turned into some theory about the Bush family being responsible for the backstabbing of Trump.

    Trump has said many times over the years his m.o. in life is never to admit you lose, even when you do (see Trump Casino, Trump University, etc.). He's said it shows weakness to admit you've lost. So it shouldn't surprise us that he won't concede. At this point I think the GOP has taken the angle that they'll let Trump not concede and tweet whatever nonsense he wants to for the next 57 days while the transition moves forward.

    It's kind of pathetic actually. It's the kind of thing you see normally with stroke, Alzheimer's, and dementia patients where caretakers will go along with delusional thoughts to avoid upsetting the patient. I'm sure many people here have experienced relatives going through that. That's 100% what this feels like now.

    That is fantastic news - just the start of the Trump Crime Family's crumbling house of cards.

    I expect Jared to the be the focus of several espionage investigations, including bribery.

    When this house of cards comes down, there will be no denying that every word uttered by this charlatan against his political opponents is projection of his own guilt. I think the ruling members of the Republican party has actually convinced itself that Democrats have been hyperbolic in their accusations and don't truly understand the extent of the criminality of the individual they have strapped themselves to. It's going to be a glorious take down of these rats when it happens.

    I completely agree. The GOtrumP has been chugging the kool aid for so long they forgot that most/all of the accusations are true.

    I sincerely hope that the GA Senate seats flip to the Democrats and we get the Senate. Warren would make a terrific Truth and Reconciliation Committee Chairperson.

    Winning both those seats would just tie the Senate, not flip it. If votes go along party lines Democrats get the de-facto win with Harris, but I don't see that being a regular thing. Manchin and some others will absolutely break party lines on some issues.

    Yeah, there's no way you'll see DC or Puerto Rico as states, or any supreme court packing, thanks in part to Manchin.

    At least some things would be worked on while we waited until 2022, though.
