    Mafia boss John Gotti, who was nicknamed the “Teflon Don” after escaping unscathed from several trials during the 1980s, is sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty on 14 accounts of conspiracy to commit murder and racketeering. Moments after his sentence was read in a federal courthouse in Brooklyn, hundreds of Gotti’s supporters stormed the building and overturned and smashed cars before being forced back by police reinforcements.

    On April 2, 1992, John Gotti was found guilty on all counts and on June 23 was sentenced to multiple life terms without the possibility of parole. While still imprisoned, Gotti died of throat cancer on June 10, 2002.

    Sound familiar?

    Trump has been involved in over 3500 suits in his long and unsavory career.

    Sometime he wins.

    Sometimes he loses.

    He is the only president in the history of the United States that was impeached twice. Despite his obvious guilty, he was not convicted either time.

    During his presidential campaign, the "Access Hollywood" tape was released, and many people believed his campaign was doomed.

    By an amazing coincidence, a day later, information that had been stolen from the Clinton campaign was released by Wikileaks, who conveniently did not reveal the fact that Russia helped him get the information.

    When the election was held, he lost BIGLY (by 3,000,000 votes) but managed to get sworn into office because he managed to eke out enough electoral college votes to get in.

    In 2020, he lost even more BIGLY (by 7,000,000 votes) , but Joe Biden got EXACTLY the same number of electoral college votes that Trump did in 2016, and all of us sighed in relief - until January 6.

    The Trump campaign filed 60 lawsuits challenging the results of the election, and lost 59 of them.

    For some reason, Trump himself, and nearly 50% Republican voters, still think that Trump won.

    Arizona has already had 2 audits of the ballots, and concluded that Joe Biden DEFINITELY won Arizona.

    Karen Fann, the senate president, was still not convinced, so she hired a firm that had NO prior experience in conducting audits to conduct ANOTHER audit. In addition to examining ballots with blue lights, and looking for watermarks and bamboo in the ballots, they barred almost all observers from the coliseum where the "audit" is being conducted.

    The last paragraph explains why the Department of Justice recently send a "what the fuck?" letter to Ms. Fann.

    The paragraph below explains one of the concerns of the Department of Justice:

    The Arizona Senate is dropping, for now, a controversial plan to go door-to-door to ask local residents about their voting history as part of its audit of Maricopa County's election.

    The decision, which Senate President Karen Fann included in a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice on Friday, comes after federal officials raised concerns that the canvassing could violate civil rights laws aimed to prevent voter intimidation.

    Do remember when John Gotti's supporters stormed the building?

    Trump's supporters are just as crazy.

    Gov. Doug Ducey has ordered Arizona Department of Public Safety protection for Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and her family after she received death threats related to the Senate contractor's ongoing audit of the November presidential election in Maricopa County.

    C.J. Karamargin, a spokesperson for Ducey's office, on Friday confirmed that Ducey ordered the protection.

    Trevor Noah had a few comments about the "audit" last night:

    "Now, you might think it's crazy to have election conspiracy theorists in charge of an election audit," Noah said. "But to me, this makes perfect sense. Because don't forget, this is the third audit they've done in Arizona. At this point, you aren't going through the effort of counting again unless you know the guys you're hiring are going to give you the result you want. This is just smart."

    Not long after Trump got elected, news broke that he had had sex with Stormy Daniels, and adult porn star, when his son Barron was less than a year old. He instructed his long-time attorney, Michael Cohen, to pay hush money to Daniels so that she would not reveal the affair. Eventually, she received $130,000, which many people thought was a clear violation of election laws.

    We all have pretty much forgotten about Stormy - until yesterday.

    The Federal Election Commission announced Thursday that it won't proceed with a case examining whether former President Trump violated election law with 2016 a hush-money payment made through his then-lawyer Michael Cohen.

    https://news.yahoo.com/fec-drops-trump-hush-money-022301454.html

    For now, he's still "Teflon Don" , but he's still facing legal challenges from Scotland (money laundering) , New York (tax evasion) and Georgia (violation of the Ku Klux Klan Act) and possibly from members of the Capital police, who were injured during the insurrection of January 6.

    How long do you think his luck is going to last?

    How long? In some respects forever as long as there is a Trump cult, excuse me, Republican Party. Perhaps he will get nailed on tax issues. I would also like to see a R.I.C.O. action against his organization.

    lonely bird:

    RICO has already happened:

    OCTOBER 30, 2018 10:49:09 AM

    Four individuals filed a lawsuit in the Southern District of New York District Court on Monday against Trump Corporation and Donald Trump alleging violations of the Racketeering Influenced and Corruption Organizations (RICO) Act. The lawsuit also names Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump as defendants.

    The lawsuit alleges that the defendants made false and misleading statements that encouraged individuals to invest in a multi-level marketing company named American Communications Network (ACN) while being paid by ACN to make the statements. Trump is accused of misrepresenting the risk profile of ACN, stating that ACN was a low-risk business venture. The lawsuit states that Montana investors only receiving an average compensation of $53.25 in compensation after an average of $752.60 of payments to ACN.

    Just like I mentioned in many of my "threads"; nothing until now "sticks"; just put the blinders on and the only hope is that he chokes on an chicken bone. It should be clear by now that these types are beyond any law or are "immune" because of the lousy few laws of 1800 we have. But the corrupt partisan lawyers don't care; they even make "money" when they sleep and just "play" with some latin "words" in their sleep.

    Sorry this "island" country still lives in 1700 related to laws and rules; if any"new" laws; then they only apply to the poor and helpless.

    Garry Trudeau summed up Trump's legal troubles this morning:

    29 ongoing lawsuits and five criminal probes in three jurisdictions.

    Although Trump will always have his defenders, it's hard to imagine him not facing punishment for his multiple crimes.

    Lindsey Graham, 2016: Trump is “crazy” and a “kook” who is “not fit to be president”

    Lindsey Graham, 2017: “What concerns me about the press is this endless attempt to label the guy as some kind of kook not fit to be president.”

    THIS IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LINDSEY GRAHAM.

    "29 ongoing lawsuits"???? Did not notice anything yet after 5 months. Just step on the la la land train; they serve Kentucky Fried chicken the whole trip provided by Mc Connell. Lawsuits? no problem at all ; he's got millions of donations so he can"pay" those off, without any problems and throw lots of parties in his southern castle . Teflon Don. But like any "Teflon" pan you use, the "Teflon" wears off after a while. Amen

    Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who was fired by then-president Donald Trump in the weeks prior to the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, is expected to throw his former boss under the bus when he testifies before Congress this week about the attack, according to a report by Axios.

    Esper was replaced by Chris Miller, who outright blamed Trump for the deadly insurrection when he spoke to VICE Showtime in March.

    “Would anybody have marched on the Capitol, and tried to overrun the Capitol, without the president’s speech? I think it’s pretty much definitive that wouldn’t have happened,” he said.

    Miller said that he wasn’t clear on whether Trump fully understood what he was doing and what his supporters would do, but he made it clear that the attack never would have happened without Trump’s words.

    So ..

    The two most recent Defense Secretaries are calling out Trump for his role on January 6.

    The teflon layer is starting to wear a little thin.
