So, I read if he gets linked to the hush money payments, its a done deal. He breaks the law while in power or while running for power.

And the penalty for that, is death by a firing squad of smocking gunners.

As Trump gets squeezed into a corner, he will be looking for a major distraction to divert attention and unite the country behind him. Expect him to start a war.

We are former senators. The Senate has long stood in defense of democracy - and must again.

 

By 44 Former U.S. Senators
December 10 at 8:30 PM

 

Dear Senate colleagues,

 

As former members of the U.S. Senate, Democrats and Republicans, it is our shared view that we are entering a dangerous period, and we feel an obligation to speak up about serious challenges to the rule of law, the Constitution, our governing institutions and our national security.

 

We are on the eve of the conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation and the House’s commencement of investigations of the president and his administration. The likely convergence of these two events will occur at a time when simmering regional conflicts and global power confrontations continue to threaten our security, economy and geopolitical stability.

 

It is a time, like other critical junctures in our history, when our nation must engage at every level with strategic precision and the hand of both the president and the Senate.

 

We are at an inflection point in which the foundational principles of our democracy and our national security interests are at stake, and the rule of law and the ability of our institutions to function freely and independently must be upheld.

 

During our service in the Senate, at times we were allies and at other times opponents, but never enemies. We all took an oath swearing allegiance to the Constitution. Whatever united or divided us, we did not veer from our unwavering and shared commitment to placing our country, democracy and national interest above all else.

 

At other critical moments in our history, when constitutional crises have threatened our foundations, it has been the Senate that has stood in defense of our democracy. Today is once again such a time.

 

Regardless of party affiliation, ideological leanings or geography, as former members of this great body, we urge current and future senators to be steadfast and zealous guardians of our democracy by ensuring that partisanship or self-interest not replace national interest.

This belongs in the headlines thread. It is classic. Trump will probably jump all over it as fake news,

More fake news ...

 

 

 

 

[from the same meme site]

 

 

 

EDIT  Trump is so close to satire and so far removed from reality that it's become increasingly hard to know what's real and what's fake.

Flying Trump to midterm rallies to stump for Republicans cost US taxpayers millions

 

 

US president Donald Trump flew to more than 40 political rallies in the months leading up to the 2018 mid-term elections, to coax his loyal fans to come out to the polls for Republican candidates.

 

A Quartz analysis of Trump’s travel schedule and the latest Department of Defense operating figures for Air Force One aircraft suggests the tab for the air travel alone was $17 million.

 

The costs so far have been borne almost completely by US taxpayers.

 

When presidents use Air Force One for campaign purposes, their political party or reelection campaign is supposed to cover a portion of the astronomical operating costs, according to Federal Election Commission rules.

 

The Trump campaign reimbursed the Treasury roughly $112,000 for air travel in March and April. There has been no paperwork filed for any similar reimbursements since then.

 

The specially equipped Boeing 747 jet that the president travels on most often costs $142,380 per hour to operate, including fuel, onboard supplies, and engine and aircraft maintenance. ...

 

When then-president Barack Obama used Air Force One to fly with Hillary Clinton to a July 2016 campaign rally in North Carolina, the Clinton campaign reimbursed the US government $37,000 for the trip.

 

Trump was an outspoken critic of the practice then ...
