Media is running red flags about Trump impeachment as most Democrats support the charges

the newYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

It is not enough that Donald Trump’s critics, in criticism and politics, shrug off the hearings, convinced that those close to the former president showed he was promoting false allegations of election fraud.

Now they want him behind bars.

Drudge even has a picture of him wearing an orange jumpsuit.

Of course, Trump hardliners, and each other, have been telling us for years that Trump was on his way to prison. Just wait – until Michael Cohen turns on him! Until Bob Muller finished the investigation! Until prosecutors in New York overthrow his top aide in the Trump Organization! Until Merrick Garland files the indictment!

The desire to prosecute and convict Trump runs deep — and so far, at least, he has remained a step ahead of the law.

‘Team Ordinary’ and ‘Team Madness’: Who will be deployed in the January 6 sessions?

Now the journalists are right that House testimony by the likes of Bill Barr, Bill Stebbin and Mike Pence closely tied Trump to the attempt to overturn the election. If he privately admits he lost in 2020, and is warned there was no serious fraud – which Trump continues to oppose – that puts him in center of January 6.

But even if you disagree, it’s still a far cry from the unprecedented step of bringing criminal charges against a former president.

When Jerry Ford pardoned Richard Nixon, most of the country felt cheated at the opportunity to hold him responsible for the Watergate crimes. Decades later, many, including myself, came to the opinion that Ford helped the country recover, and that two years of legal wrangling would have kept America mired in a long national nightmare.

This is not an argument against Trump’s accusation. While Nixon resigned and retired to Saddle River, Trump remains the dominant force in the Republican Party and the likely candidate for 2024. His ongoing crusade against the last election, without evidence, is a more difficult position than he would have just been. Decided to hang out around Mar-a-Lago.

In an ABC poll conducted immediately after the sessions, 58% said Trump should face criminal charges. But the poll also highlights the country’s hot divisions. About 91% of Democrats, but only 19% of Republicans support such accusations. The percentage of independents is 62%. So it’s not hard to imagine that the trial would be more polarizing than the two charges.

This is a tough call for Garland, who himself has been denied a hearing as a Supreme Court nominee due to the Republican influence game. There is such a thing as a DPP estimate. Autocratic regimes are notorious for throwing the old president into prison after the new president takes power.

Media analysts are now warning that such accusations could easily fail.

If the Department of Justice sues him, prosecutors will be challenged to prove that he knew – or should have known – that his position was based on assertions about widespread electoral fraud that he was false or that his attempt to prevent Congress’ ratification of the result was improper, says The New York Times. legal.”

Which brings us to the question of intentions. As someone who has covered trials, I know that prosecutors have to show that they have willful knowledge of a crime. If Trump makes the case that he believes he is exploring his legal and constitutional rights to challenge the findings, it may be difficult to convince the jury otherwise.

The Times article says Trump has a long history of ignoring the truth, but “his constant stream of lies highlights some of the complexities in pursuing any criminal case against him, despite how accurate the basic facts are at this point.”

In an opinion piece, a former Bush administration Justice Department official made a crucial point: Can Attorney General Joe Biden bring the case, given the internal conflict between Trump being a former and potential opponent of the future president?

If not, the AG will have to bring in a private advisor, and decide how much independence it gives that person. Everyone knows how long such independent investigations take, because the bureau has only one case. Want another investigation into Donald Trump that’s been in the spotlight for years?

As he contemplates the possibility of a legal defense, Trump slams the House committee on January 6 in a way that suggests he’s angry at all the coverage. He says the “highly unchosen” are trying to “create a fake story”. Knowing that Georgian President Brad Ravensberger, who asked Trump for 11,800 votes, is testifying today, Trump posted: “My phone call with the Secretary of State of Georgia, with many other people, including several lawyers, knowingly, was absolutely perfect. And wonderful. Fitting.” Well… where have we heard that word before?

And in a quick swipe at Kevin McCarthy, Trump called the tactic of blocking supportive Republicans from joining the committee after Nancy Pelosi vetoed two minority leader options “a very foolish decision.” which may be true

In the end, a criminal matter is a no-win situation. Either Democrats will say Trump got rid of the law with impunity or Republicans will say his enemies persecute him.
