Trump is about to get po’. Real quick. And it’s up to congress to ensure it.

I have written before, and I say it again now, Donald Trump never wanted to be President. That was obvious from the start. He looked around, saw 16 other at least marginally qualified political candidates running for President on the GOP side, and said, “Qhat the hell. Let’s run for President! Throw my name around in the media, get some face time, and fuck with everybody else. Besides, it’ll get me out of the house, and on the prowl for the next Stormy. What could go wrong?” If you have any doubts onthat score, just remember that Trump never bothered to wrote a victory speech for election night. I rest my case.

But, if his running for President was supposed to be the ultimate branding exercise, then his actually winning the Presidency has been the anti-Christ for all of that. In response to his selfish, sexist, bigoted rantings and ravings as our Commander in Chief, stores have dropped his lines of shit, memberships at his gold courses are down, hotel occupancy rates suffered, and Trump branded properties have seen actual residents revolt, forcing the owners to remove his name from the buildings. He went from being a more or less universally approved of television reality star to a President whom only about 37% of the country can stomach the sight of. I’m starting to wonder, is Trump tired of all of this “winning” yet?

But it’s about to get worse. A whole lotta worse. Pretty much from the time that Trump unpacked his silk BVD’s in the White House residence, he has been beset by scandal, most notably the Robert Mueller investigation. Trump of course required legal representation to deal with inquiries from the probe, so he hired lawyers. On our dimes ladies and gentlemen. As long as Mueller was investigating the President, then “we the people” are footing the tab to try to keep his plush bottom ass out of the crossbar Hilton. Wth the election of a Democratic led House last November, the White House Counsels office just bulked up with at least 14 new staff lawyers, just to deal with the expected incoming requests for information from the committee investigations. And yeah, you and I are going to be turning our pockets inside out to pay for them too.

But here’s where the rubber meets the road. The chickens have a funny way of coming home to roost. And what’s the defining characteristic of a hen house? Chicken shit of course. Thanks to Michael Cohen’s House testimony, we now know that the Southern District of New York prosecutors are looking into a bevy of past Trump misdeeds, many of them likely having nothing to do with his tenure as Toddler in Chief. The New York Attorney General’s office is taking a pair of rusty pliers to the fingernails of Trump’s alleged charitable foundation. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has already publicly stated that they have opened their own inquiries into possible criminal malfeasance, and the New York state Financial Services Division just served Trump’s insurance agency with a subpoena for every communication they have had with Trump going all the way back to 2001.

Guess what kiddies? Trump is going to need some serious legal representation, and a lot of it, to fight off this circular firing squad of investigations, with all guns pointing directly at him. And if those investigations have nothing to do with his tenure as the unconstitutionally elected President of the United States, then we taxpayers are off the hook for those legal expenses. Those White House lawyers are for defending the office of the Presidency, not the pasty ass of Don the Con. It is going to have to be up to somebody, whether it’s congress, or reporters, to check the filings in these investigations to ensure that cases that have nothing to do with Trump’s official duties as President are not showing White House lawyers as the counsel of record. Trump shit in his mess kit, let Trump clean up the mess. Why should we have to pay for the Brillo pad?

I have said for a long time now that it won’t be Robert Mueller, or the Department of Justice that will send Trump to prison, it will be New York state. I say that for two reasons. First, a Trump Presidential pardon cannot save himself, nor his Satan spawn kids, nor his numb nuts son in law from state convictions. His pardons are only good for federal crimes, not state charges. And second, states are not governed by that brain dead DOJ policy prohibiting indicting a sitting President. They can indict him whenever they feel like it. And while they may not be able to try him until he leaves office, the indictments stop the statute of limitations, so he can’t run out the clock with a second term. And New York state has an “availability of defendant” clause, so he can’t wriggle off of the hook by not being given a “speedy trial” either.

Two last things to leave a smile on your chops when you finish reading this. First, Trump has a long, incredibly detailed history of stiffing his lawyers. Why do you think that legal bottom feeders like Jay Sekulow and Rudy Giuliani are the best he can come up, even if their pay is guaranteed by the US Treasury? What kind of legal offal do you think he’s going to attract when he has to write his own retainer checks? And last, but by no means least. Because its largest city is pretty much the hub of the global financial market, New York State has its own local version of the federal RICO statutes. When you start to combine things like tax fraud, insurance fraud, bank fraud, possible money laundering, and obstruction of justice together into a nice, fat, messy ball, you’re starting to see something that looks suspiciously like a corrupt, criminal organization. With the seizure RICO statutes, Trump could well not only die in state prison, but he could die without a penny to his name. The Ultimater LOSER!

I’m guessing he (and his spawn, if they’re not already in jail) be on Air Force One on January 19th, heading for some “shit hole country” that doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the U.S.

What, no edit function? Should have been “will be on Air Force One…”

Ah, don’t sweat it, Whoopee, I got your meaning. Personally, I think you’re being optimistic on how long that event may take place.

well, I say leave AF1 here and let him slink out on his own crap plane.

I hope that in the process a lot of the Repuke enablers are brought down, perhaps serving time in federal prison for obstruction or other crimes. I personally feel that the real villains here are the people who keep this creature in office by normalizing and obscuring his behavior and crimes. Watching Trump go down will be like watching the Black Knight lose the battle in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, never accepting the reality of his defeat. Trump will be tweeting nonsense from prison.

The GOP is ruined for at least a generation now. You could trace the rot right back to the end of the time of W. That familial embarrassment to Clan Bush took all the centralized leadership structure with him. They’ve only become more Balkanized since, with the crazies driving out the sane of whatever moral alignment. Their biggest problem is twofold: 1) as my mom would say, too many chiefs, not enough Indians…they all want to be top dog. 2) none of them are actually qualified to BE top dog of their local PTA, never mind a national political party.… Read more »

True, the GOP is being decimated by old age and illness, but I see way to many younger, as in middle age 40 to 60 year old’s that are ready to take up the racist banner and carry on the tradition….

Bearshark, it goes back farther than the Bushes. It started with Newt Gingrich’s 1995 Southern Strategy.

The minute he won, I knew there was never going to be a happy ending to it. But the speed of this unraveling has been shocking. How sloppy of a crook are you if any first-year law student can pick up your trail? My only comfort at this point is the ruin described above, Murf. Amazing what you CAN’T get away with when you step into a spotlight.

Yes! He is getting entirely to many right wing judges on our courts, which will be another big problem for all of us in the decades to come.

I’m just afraid that he’s going to refuse to leave.
Good seeing you here Murfster.

Afraid is what he wants you to be. Without that, he could be broken by the most out of shape slob off the street in about two seconds. So…wherever you can, deny him that fix.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that our total border concerns don’t suddenly point West out of Northern CA with people out on the beaches looking high and shouting at the top of their lungs …. “INCOMING!!” I must say, with all the bull being presented by the boso Blond in committee today with inflated numbers and piss ass boosting of Trump’s homemade Emergency, you would think we could see suffering, non-white people staggering into our state up here, thousands of miles north of those unfortunately vile countries who abuse these sad parades of people … Trump has shown his true… Read more »

I so truly hope and pray that the SDNY takes over where Mr. Mueller leaves off, with enough freshly-minted RICO charges for the whole grifting family to go away for a long time….I’m a life-long NooYawka, and am so proud of our “legal eagles!”

Thank you for writing this! I’ve been so depressed lately, then read today that trump is trying to take money from Military pensions to pay for his wall. I recently lost my husband (9 months ago) and survive on half his pension and my SS survivor benefits. I’m terrified I will be cut off from the survivor pension from the military. Your story here has helped me feel a little better today.
