    “DOJ investigating potential pay-for-presidential pardon scheme”
    “The U.S. Justice Dept. is conducting an investigation into allegations of a bribery scheme for a presidential pardon, according to court documents unsealed Tuesday. Tom Winter joins The ReidOut for more.”
    (https://www.msnbc.com/the-reidout/watch/doj-investigating-potential-pay-for-presidential-pardon-scheme-96956485907)
    —looks like pay to pardon scheme, and only trump has the power to pardon.

    “Catastrophic” rush to execute.
    “These executions are being expedited on a schedule for political points,” says “Just Mercy” author Bryan Stevenson on Trump push for federal executions before leaving office”. He speaks with Hayes.
    —-btw Trump is also for firing squad and gassing.

      Trump is the reason children died in his jails on the border. Trump is the reason 150,000 and more Americans have died of COVID-19 who didn’t have to – due to his willful denial and inaction.
      He is responsible for those deaths. He is the murderer of which he speaks. He comes out swinging thinking it will help him to look innocent. Not just screwing up the Government on the way out, but killing as many prisoners as possible. I believe 8 people have already been executed.
      Let just punishment reign down upon him.

    Congressman Eric Swalwell speaking to O’Donnell:
    “Absolute corruption Lawrence. We see a president who is not interested in justice.
    He’s interested in protecting himself…it’s not about justice at all. It’s a criminal who is seeking to cover is tracks. And we’ve seen this with other partners. It is a bribery presidency. Smash and Grab out the door.
    He was impeached for bribery and in the final days of his presidency there’s bribery, pardons investigations taking place. You could have set your clock to this though Lawrence. Because the president accuses others of exactly what he is always doing. But legally, pardoning himself or pardoning others for future crimes is legally unlawful, practically unenforceable and morally unconscionable. And so I in Congress I think what we have to do is become more imaginative about how to protect our democracy from future presidents doing this. And as a country,
    as citizens, to look at amending the Constitution to prevent a president from ever pardoning themselves,
    a family member, or proactively pardoning others to shield themselves in criminal investigations.”

    Donald McNeil has taken a more optimistic tone lately says Maddow…even so this is his latest:
    “The Long Darkness Before Dawn”
    “Our failure to protect ourselves has caught up to us.
    The nation now must endure a critical period of transition, one that threatens to last far too long, as we set aside justifiable optimism about next spring and confront the dark winter ahead. Some epidemiologists predict that the death toll by March could be close to twice the 250,000 figure that the nation surpassed only last week….

    Even as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urged Americans to avoid holiday travel
    and many health officials asked families to cancel big gatherings, more than six million Americans took flights during Thanksgiving week, which is about 40 percent of last year’s air traffic. And President Trump, the one person most capable of altering the trajectory between now and spring, seems unwilling to help his successor do what must be done to save the lives of tens of thousands of Americans.”

      “Donald McNeil, science and health reporter for the New York Times,
      talks with Rachel Maddow about the challenge of convincing people whose minds have been poisoned by misinformation to take Covid-19 seriously, and the idea of appealing to “thought leaders”, (and sending the message to) Fox News hosts that following scientific recommendations is in their interest.”

    Se pardonner: To forgive oneself, to pardon oneself.
    Trump in his terror or unconsciousness may not cognize the former, and for the latter, he is legally unable to pardon himself.

      tRump and his ilk use excuses like, ” I didn’t tell anyone to threaten/attack/assault/kill anyone”, or ” I have no control over what people do”.

      But at some point, it should be acknowledged that being in the office of POTUS, his words carry weight and have consequences. There is a pattern that has been establish, especially from his rallies, that certain rhetoric elicits certain behavior from his supporters.

      Just as a professional boxer’s hands can be considered a lethal weapon, tRumps words should be considered a dangerous weapon as well. And just as bars and party hosts can be held liable for allowing patrons/guests to over imbibe, drive, and cause an accident or homicide, tRump should be held liable for the violent and/or deadly results of his lies and rants.

    Georgia’s deputy secretary of state Jordan Fuchs confirmed Wednesday that Price was under investigation for fraudulent voter registration, a felony charge.

    “This isn’t California,” Fuchs said. “We actually investigate and seek to prosecute individuals who try vote here illegally. Our system is built to prevent this behavior— we will seek to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.”

    Georgia officials have been warning for weeks that registering to vote in the state with no intention of staying there can be punishable with felony charge that can carry up to a 10-year prison term and $100,000 fine.
