Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, December 10, 2018

California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said Sunday that President Donald Trump could "face the real prospect of jail time" after federal prosecutors said last week that the President directed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to make illegal hush-money payments during the presidential campaign.

According to the Face the Nation transcript:

MARGARET BRENNAN: The filing made Friday by federal prosecutors in Manhattan references Individual-1 about thirty times. Individual-1 is President Trump. And it appears to link him to campaign finance violations. It doesn't charge him with any wrongdoing, though. What's your takeaway?

REPRESENTATIVE ADAM SCHIFF: My takeaway is there's a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him, that he may be the first President in quite some time to face the real prospect of jailtime. We have been discussing the issue of pardons that the President may offer to people or dangle in front of people. The bigger pardon question may come down the road as the next president has to determine whether to pardon Donald Trump. Now, I think the-- the prosecutors in New York make a powerful case against that idea. All the arguments they make about Michael Cohen, the idea that while people are out walking precincts and doing what they should do in campaigns, the rich and powerful seem to live by a different set of rules. So, this was the argument for putting Michael Cohen in jail on these campaign violations. That argument I think was equally made with respect to Individual-1, the President of the United States.

In that same transcript, Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio said he believes anyone who did anything wrong should be held accountable:

SENATOR MARCO RUBIO: Yeah. I'm interested in-- in the truth. I want to know what happened. And if someone didn't do anything wrong here, we don't want to be unfair and unjust. If someone did something wrong here it is important, in the interest of the country and the rule of law, that those people be held to account. That's what I've always been in favor of, the truth, finding out everything that happened, making sure that we're not out there accusing people of things that didn't happen. And those are ongoing probes and-- and some of it we're beginning to see glimpses of-- of pieces of information. I would argue that Mister Mueller probably has more information than the rest of us do, certainly the general public does.

"Christie: It sounds like prosecutors have corroborating evidence against Trump beyond Cohen

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Sunday that the language federal prosecutors are using to refer to President Trump in an indictment against Michael Cohen makes it sound as if they might have corroborating evidence that the president violated campaign finance law.

"When prosecutors sound that definitive they've got more usually than just one witness."

Trump? Jail time?

I wouldn't get my hopes up over that. If George W. and Dick Cheney didn't get prison time for their WMD lies that killed nearly 5,000 soldiers and wounded nearly 32,000 more, for Iraq's oil, Trump and his brood won't serve a single day.

America doesn't put it's rogue presidents in jail. We just destroy them politically so they can't do any more damage.

Nixon had to be pardoned. W was duped. Cheney is evil, but his lies were plausible enough they fooled the UN in light of Saddams bluster and post 911 fear. Reagan had people take the fall for him.

"Trampy is in deeper doodoo than all the others."

It's going to take a lot more than they have now to convince a brain-dead Senate to convict. And I don't know what Dem House oversight committees can find out what Mueller doesn't already know. Mr. Mueller has already met with the new House leadership to make sure they don't do anything that will screw up his own investigations.

We're going to see a lot of stage crafting for public consumption (from both Dems and Repubs on these committees) and I agree they'll be entertaining, but they'll also be handicapped by Mr. Mueller's guidelines.

To get Trump convicted in the Senate, the evidence will have to be so iron clad and overwhelming that even the Republicans can't find a loop hole. Otherwise, Trump will skate.

No one wants to see this POS convicted more than me. I just don't want to see the House try to impeach with a bunch of bluff and bluster as the House (both isles) is wont to do.

If Nixon, Reagan, Bush 1 and Bush 2 never got any jail time Trump will be fine. In all honesty, his crimes are minor compared to theirs.

"Nixon had to be pardoned. W was duped."

Baloney. He intended to invade Iraq, if he got to be President, while still Gov. of Texas. Duped my ass! He even told us what his real reason for it was....he said, "war time president have more power and I'm going to use that power to privatize Social Security." Does that sound "duped" or just plain evil to you? To me, just plain evil. Over one million people have lost their lives due to his invasion of Iraq and he sits in Dallas painting stupid little pictures. Trump is a jerk, an a*****e", many things but he hasn't committed any crime, that I know of, which campares, in any way, to the crimes of George W. Bush.

#23 Because he was not ordered to pay fines or go to jail. He paid off a mistress with money that was given to him to fund his campaign but half the jury most likely bought his story that the payoff was to protect his wife. The same case can be used with Trump except the money was his own.

That's because there was one not-guilty verdict and a mistrial.

You don't pay fines or go to jail because of not-guilty verdict or a mistrial

That doesn't mean there were no criminal violations to begin with, as you so stupidly claim.

OJ Simpson being found not-guilty didn't magically bring Brown Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman back to life.

Their murder was a criminal violation.

But OJ Simpson paid no fine and didn't go to jail.

He did, however, get a $70 million-plus civil judgment for those 1994 killings.

How could that be, if there was no criminal violation - murder - to begin with?

John Edwards was charged with a crime and found not guilty by a Jury

First an investigation that found evidence of a crime. Then charges. Then a trial.

With Hillary There was the investigation which found no evidence of a crime so there were no charges and no trial.

Trump Could 'Face the Real Prospect of Jail Time'

Despite my #13, above, the reality is that the likelihood of seeing President Fat Clemenza doing an orange clad, duck-walk perp walk into prison is as close to zero as it can get.

Not that he wouldn't deserve some serious time for the things for which he's accused.

Ultimately, the 'Presidents Club' is about as exclusive a club as you can get in the USA, and it is unlikely that those in charge would want to inflict such an image on the body politic.

Ultimately, it would end up being some sort of Club Elba for President Fat Clemenza, and his real punishment (and karma) would be to render the name "Trump" worthless.

Let's hope Mueller has something more substantial than that.

However, if anything starts to drip out pointing to Trump's kids getting in trouble, I have a hard time believing that he would stick it out as POTUS. I'd think he'd be so offended that his kids got in trouble that he would turn against everything, making this a Trump Family vs. United States sort of thought process.

Trump is clearly, and always has been, a Trump first and American second. I'm sure it's the same for most people, but not to the degree it is for Trump or his kids, IMO.

#44 | Posted by PinchALoaf at 2018-12-10 07:25 PM | Reply

Impeachments take months of Judicial Committee meeting. Trump can wreak a lot of revenge before impeachment finally goes to the Senate. I'd rather see him backed into a brick wall where'd he'd have to cop a plea to resign to save his kids from prison terms.

I agree with RSTY that a more fitting punishment for Trump would be the loss of revenue for his "brand" but in Trump's underworld of dirty dealing with his own kind, I'm not sure that would have the desired affect. He'd merely have to change the company name to DJT Development, or some such thing, and continue on.

Any foreign entity that deals with him now is well aware of "caveat emptor." Yet they're still willing to risk the investment. (for a huge cut, I suspect) or even a percentage of ownership to protect their collateral.

Should Trump be driven to resign, he may have a bigger problem with Russia. Promises were made and gifts were exchanged. Putin, a former KGB officer, doesn't strike me as the type who would take failure lightly from their U.S. agent in the White House. They had a lot riding on him.
