    There are way too many to list, but as they come back up in the news we can discuss them here.

    In the news today:

    Bribery for Pardon scheme court filing released today from last August. Apparently last summer DOJ raided an office and secured a massive amount of electronic gear and other evidence and in Aug a Federal judge ruled that that raid was legal and the evidence could be turned over to prosecutors. Most of the filing was redacted (who what when where etc.) but the evidence covers people paying for Trump pardons.

    Trump's Leadership PAC gets most of the $170 million raised after the election. That money goes to Trump personally. The other big chunk goes to the RNC.

    Discussions revealed that Trump is moving towards pardoning his kids and Giuliani. The exact wording of such pardons would be critical and could lead to challenges. Blanket pardons are mostly untested territory.

    Barr secretly promoted Attorney Durham to Special Counsel to try and preserve his investigation into 2016 election beyond January 20th.

    What about his wife and youngest son - Melania was sometimes an absolute idiot and completely out of touch with real life, but did she and the kid (he's still a minor, isn't he?) ever get their hands dirty?

    No, a new AG will just tell him to stop. He gets a new boss on Jan 20th.

    Exactly... Trump got in big trouble for trying to shut down or replace the special counsel looking into his alleged conspiracy

    Which reminds me, a thread like this would have been great 4 years ago to document the lies told about Trump

    Biden wouldn't have to be involved. The new AG would look over the investigation (and many others) and decide if it was worth pursuing. The Mueller investigation was all about Trump and him shutting it down was all about obstruction. Biden isn't involved; if he doesn't like what his AG does maybe they will have a conversation.

    We also have our own Тrump in Russia .His name is Vladimir Zhirinovsky.But he's not a Republican ,he's a liberal, and he's gay.And so the same populist with a bunch of promises that are not fulfilled.He promises them since 1990 and did not become President .

    Not a genuine assessment of Trump. Ego should be much higher. Set consists only of Trump cards.

    It depends on your point of view:
    Ego:
    the part of the mind that mediates between the conscious and the unconscious and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of personal identity.​

    Surely the 45 for hairstyle is the most wrong, that cannot be worth more than a point or 2.

    That is the most amazing content free website I have ever seen. How they can have so many words, and still not actually say what they do.

    2800 Americans died yesterday of covid setting a new record. Trump is planning multiple, super spreader events at the WH over the holidays. Hospitals are over run. 270,000 total dead. A new 9-11 every 25 hours! And while we are winning so bigly, the turd watches the news and plans rallies so more people will die. @Berzerker @onejayhawk @abradley please explain to me why you support this man for 4 more years. Why are all those dead and the millions injured acceptable to you?
