My second prediction: Latest at Jan 20th is another Showtime.
Some signs for preparation again.
Example: That individual with an ugly moustache bringing instructions to Trump how to act.

Ask yourself: Why does Trump need to take Air Force One when he leaves Washington?
I hope some key persons are alert.

Oh dear.....how sad....

So she gets on a private jet, pops into Washington, has a bit of a fiesta in the Capitol, says a few things which, to the untrained legal mind suggest she wasn't exactly forced to attend, and now, is apparently about to discover she may become the resident of a "bijou terrace apartment, located in a prestigious area, with the additional benefit of 24 /7 access controlled security for extra peace of mind " ...she's a real estate agent remember...who, bless her, has an expectation it seems....

Standard operating procedure.

The President is the President until 12 noon EST on Jan. 20 - and "Air Force One" is his ride until then. And technically, Air Force One is not a specific airframe, but the call sign for whichever aircraft is currently carrying the President. (There are several in the special air mission (SAM) squadron)

Even Nixon left DC on AF1, after tendering his resignation (but before the effective hour). Halfway to California he ceased to be President, and the call sign changed to the aircraft tail number for the remainder of the flight ("SAM 27000").

Over Jefferson City, Missouri, Albertazzie (the pilot) radioed: "Kansas City, this was Air Force One. Will you change our call sign to Sierra Alpha Mike (SAM) 27000?" Back came the reply: "Roger, Sierra Alpha Mike 27000. Good luck to the President."
It is, of course, unusual for the President to be in the air at the exact moment his term ends - usually he is on the podium alongside the new President.

I imagine that within "domestic law enforcement", you include that most pernicious of responses, Dick Cheney's, sorry, Gee Dubya's "Patriot Act". Ben Franklin would have had something to say about that.

Gee whiz, just because we lead the world in COVID-19 deaths, you're going to hold it against Trump for denying there was a problem?

2 million deaths worldwide. Approaching 400,000 in the United States, where wearing a mask became a political issue rather than a matter of common sense during the worst pandemic in a century.

This ditz, Jenna Ryan said:
: “I would ask the president of the United States to give me a pardon.” On Wednesday, Trump was impeached for inciting the attack on 6 January that left five people dead, including a police officer, and sent lawmakers fleeing for their lives. Ryan said she had been “displaying my patriotism”, adding: “I listen to my president who told me to go to the Capitol.”
Sounds like a really great piece of evidence against Trump in the forthcoming Senate trial. And if she gets her pardon, it gets even better!.
Do these people have a single brain cell between them?

The pretend prez pardons his own criminal accomplices and the legal world goes wild. Interesting scenario but not very funny.

Meadowrun: No, not funny at all what these guys are trying to do. But the sheer stupidity of some of their antics has a comic side, a bit like the Four Seasons Total Landscaping episode. God knows, we need something to laugh at these days.. And maybe laughter and ridicule are the best weapons against Trumpistas.

I suspect that, having had maximum use out of Trump, Putin is now looking for new challenges.

I think the answer to your question can be answered with the actions of this individual .....albeit brain cell, singular, would appear to be a gross over estimate in his case...

Oh, he's evil, I think most realize that. It's just that some say it in different ways.

Now there is apparent worry that Trump might release droves of sensitive material in a declassification spree. That is, of course, in addition to pardons that are expected.

Sure, all governments over-classify many things, but putting a political hack in as the NSA's General Counsel at this point? Wow...

The $2 million may be going to associates of Rudy. Who knows who actually pockets the money or if it will buy a pardon.

However, the perception is that money talks, so some will try.

The Covid-19 pandemic has been bad for business at Trump’s hotels and golf courses, so he could use extra pocket change.

You mean to sell off or trade to powerful people world wide. Kushner had several sus Kuwait dealings, so did Trump jr.

POLITICO:

MEANWHILE IN TRUMPLAND: Great insider piece from Axios’ Jonathan Swan and Zachary Basu on the outgoing president’s last few weeks — a genuine must-read. Axios reports Trump described his understanding of conspiracy theory QAnon’s followers as “just people who want good government” … Happily had hardcore conspiracy theorists dishing out advice, saying “sometimes you need a little a crazy” … and that those same advisers gave Trump documents advising that a foreign conspiracy to steal the election involved a “coordinated cyberwarfare attack from China, Russia, Iran, Iraq and North Korea.”

(Source)...detailed an “ad hoc” White House system for approving pardons which it said was run by the younger Kushner, bypassing the usual “intensive justice department review process intended to identify and vet the most deserving recipients from among thousands of clemency applications”.
Isn't that the definition of the term CORRUPTION? What am I missing?
