Quote:When it comes to Trump, I will never be optimistic. If anything, getting raided probably makes him even more popular with his cult. At this point I think only his death will stop him from running in 2024 and even then, they would probably elect him posthumously. Because Americans are f'n stupid.
Yeah, I have no doubt of that. The story and excuses have changed from unlawful, to planted evidence to etc.
There are a couple of outs for him already to be honest. They could try and just sew enough doubt to get a hung jury, press the case that the president can declassify whatever he wants (which is true, but there is no evidence that he did so because he ignored the regulations to do it) and so on.
I even saw in the WSJ article saying the recovered multiple top secret and classified documents that Trump is now saying they would have happily turned over everything. Although it is unclear as to why they did not do so with a subpeonia was issued in the spring or when they got the other boxes.
That said, even if there is a reasonable case one can expect Trump to fight every aspect of it for as long as possible to delay things so it has minimal impact. Then if he can play the victim hard enough and win it all again he pardons himself and it does not matter anyway.
It seems pretty clear that he broke the law in this case by having the documents and for a long stretch unsecured but it does feel unlikely that he will be punished for it.
The "OJ defense" alone could cause chain of custody questions for some jurists that could make it tricky. Unless the FBI too all sorts of photos and so on while they were there and even then. Hell, even if Trump's team was watching it is not like they are honest observers.
If anything Trump and those like him demonstrate how much a rich and powerful white guy can get away with whatever so long as you are willing to abuse the judicial system.
Look Raist bunnies...
