#1 If they do, it will slow any other actions and guarantee a Republican majority in Congress in 2022, and a Republican backlash in state legislatures and the public which could be leveraged for election reform to prevent fraud again. And it will pave the way for a GOP president in 2024,

#2 is how his Justice Department will handle calls from some Democrats to investigate and prosecute President Trump

I've seen some of this in the media. They'd best not unless they want to kick off a shit storm the likes of which they have never before seen. Most likely, those lefties who are sitting cozy now will be at risk too. Not a threat, just a prediction.

#3 They have no crime but that never stopped them before.

#4 I think the establishment deep state knows the minefield that is a Trump prosecution. They will launch investigations, sure. It will appease the rabid amongst them for a time. Drag it out a year and then end with a slap on the wrist and then sweep the whole thing under a rug.

Any real push towards a full lockup of Trump and his main supporters will move the needle full into civil war.

The real test is keeping the New York rabid idiots in check.

#5 If they try it, that opens everything up to Trump discovery. Allowing Trump’s investigators to go through the files is the last thing they want

#6 Why would there be discovery? Or a trial?

Once the decision is made to criminalize opposition to the Democrats, there's no reason to obey due process. No doubt the crimes will be "too serious" to waste effort on things like discovery -- and we've already had the Do"J" hiding exculpatory evidence during a political prosecution.

Any attempt to touch Trump in anyway has to be treated as beyond the pale -- a modern crossing of the Rubicon.

#8 There is enough dirt on Hunter to be sent to prison for life. Some of those illegal acts were done in Republican jurisdictions with Republican district attorneys.

#9 Are they trying to incite another civil war?

#10 Good luck with that. You have to provide actual evidence n court, not here say from an unknown ‘whistleblower’.
