It’s not over until the fat laddie sings:
Fulton County prosecutors will begin selecting participants Monday for a special grand jury to consider whether former president Donald Trump should be charged for his attempts to pressure Georgia officials to overturn the results of the 2020 election, which he lost.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis asked a panel of judges in January for the special grand jury because of “information indicating a reasonable probability” that the election “was subject to possible criminal disruptions.”
Willis has said in interviews that the investigation includes a January 2, 2021 phone call in which Trump told Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, “I just want to find 11,780 votes.” Trump lost the state to Joe Biden by that margin — an outcome that was affirmed by several recounts.
This story always felt like the most prosecutable, plenty of highly credible witnesses and recordings of Hair Füror, you know, criming away! And as a bonus, well, state cases are not subject to Presidential pardons, so (for instance) future-prznint Ron DeSantis could not pardon future prison inmate Trump.
(I know, I know, but a ‘Grain can dream, can’t he?)

Totally off topic, but needs saying. Joseph Cancel, 22, a former marine (one of my guys) was killed in the Ukraine last Monday, his mother reported. “He wanted to go over because he believed in what Ukraine was fighting for, and he wanted to be a part of it to contain it there so it didn’t come here, and that maybe our American soldiers wouldn’t have to be involved in it,” she said. His body hasn’t been recovered as yet. He didn’t want it to come here I think is the operative phrase. It keeps getting closer to home doesn’t it?

So, in ‘Grain’s dream, we have an erstwhile petty bureaucrat from a breakaway state in the highest office in the land? Man, you gotta lay off the nachos & caviar before bed.
In reality, there’s nothing a malignant narcissist hates more than another malignant narcissist. Were this hellscape to occur, all efforts would be put on hiding and discrediting the orange version – in part as an effort to focus attention, deifying the troglodyte, but also as a device to divert attention from the scorched earth pillaging (financial & legislative) that will the focus of the entire administration.

So many crimes but so little (0 actually) prosecution. Regan was our Teflon President by name, but Donny has him beat by miles for that title. If only we were a country of laws, sigh.

It would be something quite respectable and worth observing if this country’s DOJ used the same prosecutorial malice towards rich, fat white men the same way it applies the law to minority men.
