The beginning of the end.

I had bet on 18 months before a theatrical end to this neo-authoritarian, purely spectacular, regime. It will be shorter than that.
And although this draws a deplorable picture of the American society, culture and politics, it is a good thing. It will eventually save this country from decay.
We can expect more drama but the outcome is pretty much set.
Some rats (e.g. Chaffetz) have already swam away from the sinking ship. More will follow shortly.

1. If he's pardoned, it's time for pitchforks and torches.

 

I'm fucking serious.

If hey pardon the most criminal fucker ever in the federal government, then this country is fucking toast.

2. By what mechanism and through what powers do you think this end to the

administration is going to come? Not through any republican legislators or judges. By whom then?

4. There are so many investigations going on right now.

There's no way to stop or ignore them all. Maybe the congress will remember its mission and responsibilities.

3. I think when it happens, it'll happen fast.

I think news will break one day and within three days he'll be gone.
