Prince Bone Saw wouldn't want him, unless he brings back Jared's $2bln--with interest.

The only places Chump would want to go, would never allow him in. (Scotland, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) Any place that would take him, he'd never go. It's too late now but Chump should have done what his buddy Epstein did - buy a small Caribbean island. Bribe everyone to avoid extradition.

And hope against all hope that an R becomes President once again and pardons his ass. That is my best guess about his strategy at this point. There is no question he will never be acquitted. There may be hung juries; we'll have to wait and see on that, but no one could see all the evidence (of which we've heard only a fraction) and not know he is guilty.

With the sum total of all the cases against him, appeals could take a very long time, a decade, for instance. At that point, he'd be nearly 90 years old. They probably figure he can run out of the clock, or better bet, someone will pardon him.

I'm not sure what happens at the state level though. He's sure to be convicted in Georgia, at least in my opinion.

... it will never be someone who'd consider pardoning Chump.

The only electable Repukes (not even sure if there are any) would gain nothing by giving the podium back to Chump. Can anybody else think of any? Ted Cruz? Nah! Lindsey Graham? Forget it! Ron DeSantis? Not a chance!
