If this is true, all my money woes are solved!


It seems to be the considered opinion of a super-smart ex-president with a great brain, a lot of Republican senators, and a host of well-paid lawyers, so it must be true!

So all I have to do is rob my bank and dart out the door, and then I’m scot-free? If I try it, you’ll all quote Ayn Rand and various billionaires in my defense, right?

    T****’s lawyer addressed that on Day 1 of his trial. He said (not verbatim) that you can’t impeach a former President, but there’s a remedy for that: you can just arrest him and put him on trial in a criminal court.

    I bet T**** just loved hearing that!

    Also: “If he says he’s not robbing a bank, then he’s not robbing a bank. Must’ve been doing something else.”
    Also: “If he believes that robbing banks is okay when he does it, then robbing banks is okay when he does it. Q.E.D.”

    Back in the real world, from John Quincy Adams in 1846: “I hold myself, so long as I have the breath of life in my body, amenable to impeachment by this House for everything I did during the time I held any public office.”

    Nothing that the god-king does is unlawful, indeed, accusing is equal with treason.
    And he’s proved himself to be the god-king of this failed city-state.
    So, we need to build big assed pyramids to him.
    Or something. Anyone know how to pile dogshit that high?

    Ironically, hair furor should. The very stable genius builds tall eyesores.
    And the contractor(s) won’t be fully paid — fortunately, most dogs don’t have large fees but do know how to bite.

    Re: DonDueed @ #1…
    There’s a DA in Fulton County, GA that’s working on that. The charge being looked at is a felony that carries a minimum of 1 year in prison.

    @1 i share your distaste of using his real surname ,when the pussy tape came to light i started calling him the snatch snatcher .
    At the moment he is watching the trial on TV ,which seems a bit strange .Doesn’t the accused have to be in court ?
    And if he is so clever ,why isn’t he defending himself .

    A bit of topic ,but still to do with the law ,my twin brother had a jury service letter last week .
    He has a learning disability plus he has epilepsy .
    I had to fill an on-line form asking him to be excused .I told them he had a LD ,plus he has epilepsy ,and if he had a seizure in the court room it might upset the judge .LOL. I am starting to regret the bit about upsetting the judge ,they might think i was taking the mick .

    What’s more, during the lifetimes of the Founding Papas, multiple impeachments were held (for lesser officials), and every single one of them were of former officials who had already left office. So it’s absurd to claim that the words in the Constitution were intended to apply only to those currently in office.

    As disgusting as Trump is, his Republican enablers are far, far worse. One would think that being attacked in their own Senate chamber by a mob would be enough to get them to abandon him. One would be wrong.

    If I had known how cheaply Republicans were willing to sell their souls, I’d have bought a dozen of them to give away as door prizes at my next dinner party.

    @9, Well, that’s one way to enforce restrictions on gatherings — assuming your invitees are sane — or at least to attend in full PPE, including Knight’s armour and a fecking huge sharp broadsword.

    that you can’t impeach a former President, but there’s a remedy for that: you can just arrest him and put him on trial in a criminal court.

    Sure at which point they will argue that since Trump was president at the time and that DOJ policy is that a sitting president cant be indicated , only impeached , the criminal trial is unconstitutional.

    To do this in true Trumpian fashion, you need to say “I didn’t rob the bank. The bank robbed me.” Then turn the discussion over to how much the bank should really be paying you and that they should be grateful you satisfied yourself with a small down payment.

    Can’t remember the film ,it was set in the 1930’s ,a guy robs a Bank ,and then gives back the money
    a farmer has just paid in .
    Would said farmer have to repay it ?
