3. It might be, might be, good if tRump is GOP nominee at convention and convicted a week later

At some point, tRump will be

A) Indicted nominee.

B) Convicted nominee.

C) Shut out of GOP and running a MAGAt party third-party campaign.

None of those scenarios is good for GOP. Their best hope is that he is convicted before the convention so that they can shut him out.

If he is convicted between the convention and the Nov 2024 election, while their nominee, that would probably be the worst for the GOP. They would not be able to dump him and shove in a different nominee without tortuous convulsions.

There is a significant possibility that the Grumpy Old People party might become a dead-man-walking party after 2024.
