    Personally I'd rather have a President that stutters than one that ShitsHisPants.

    Heh. Stuttering is preferable. The incontinence issue seems to be gathering steam.

    I repeat. Show me where there needs to be an underlying offence, one which is not statute barred. And spare me the histrionics.

    WILMINGTON, North Carolina, April 20 (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump canceled a campaign rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, on Saturday because of an incoming storm, but told the crowd he would return at a later date.

    Trump told the crowd to leave immediately because of safety concerns as lightning flashed at the rally site.

    "I'm devastated that this could happen but we want to keep everybody safe," Trump told the crowd, his voice relayed to loudspeakers at the outdoor rally at an airport in the presidential battleground state. Trump was calling in from his private jet about a half hour before he was set to take the stage.

    The event was due to take place after the first week of his hush money trial in New York.'

    Remember that goofy saying that “I am the storm” that Trump likes to say? Heh.

    I've given that question some thought, and I would bet that, when the language of the law is applied, if the evidence shows a violation of a federal law,
    it doesn't specify that he must be found guilty in federal court.
    Bragg is about to reveal his.case, and the Trump defense doesn't act like they have this in the bag, so I think the answers to your questions will be answered in tbe next few weeks.
    We're about to see all the evidence, why so quick to judge?

    I understand and won't be holding my breath.
    Head buried firmly in the sand. You don't need any balancing act in that position.

    Care to articulate why you think I have my head in the sand?
    I'm going by the fact that I don't think that Bragg is stupid, agrand jury bought it, and multiple judges have ruled in it.
    This is the weakest of the four criminally charged cases, so I would bet that the defense isn't as easy as some here portray.
    I could be wrong.
    We definately will see, and I will accept the jury's determination.
    What's your overall take?

    There is another alternative you know. It is not just Biden v Pig Swill****.

    *Rapist
    *Swindler
    *Bordering on pathological
    *Built the New York skyline.

    Sorry, perhaps that was a little mean. It just seemed clever to me at the moment. You said this,

    if the evidence shows a violation of a federal law,
    it doesn't specify that he must be found guilty in federal court.


    Bragg might very well make that argument, but it shouldn't hold any water. Such a thing doesn't even need to be specified.
    My take is that a conviction is inevitable, regardless of the facts. The judge won't let a silly thing like lack of standing interfere in this one. I'm clearly on the record that this entire case is a sham.

    And not once have you articulated why you reckon it is a sham.

    I respect that opinion, but Bragg, whatever is said about him, isn't stupid, and I would think would have an answer for that, but if not, Trump should be found not guilty of the felony charges.
    That is whatTrump's lawyers are shooting for ,IMO.
    And it was clever! Keep it coming! Lol!

    If he's not stupid, he's doing a fine job of making it look like he is. The same goes for the judge. Only alternative to stupidity for both is corruption. Merchan allowed this to go forward in spite of the SOL expiring. Yes, I know they claim it tolled. But that also is bs since he was never at any point at an unknown location.

    Nope. The presence of people in the other party make no impact upon the very clear sickness in your own.

    You don’t improve your own housekeeping by complaining about how your neighbour keeps his house…

    Bushy alludes to an obvious solution to your woes…. How much effort have you expended in having someone like Haley replace The Stain, even at this late stage…? Surely you would regard someone like her as more of a ‘normal’ Republican…? Will you be supporting any motion from the floor to make her the candidate at your conference…?

    So far only the sleazebag Jason Miller and Trump's campaign spokesman, Steven Cheung,who defends Trump from his alternate universe have been in court with him.
    Come tomorrow who in Trump's family will make a showing?
    Melania?
    His 4 kids?
    Dumber than a rock Lara Trump wouldn't surprise me.
    Habbahabbahabba?

    Trump paid out $310,000 in hush money for 3 NDAs not to protect wifey/family as had been claimed.

    Trump’s hush-money trial: prosecutors’ key arguments in criminal case

    'Starting Monday, Trump becomes the first ex-US president to face a criminal jury, over alleged payments to an adult film star'

    "In court papers, prosecutors say that Trump tried to stall the Daniels payoff “for as long as possible”. Trump told Cohen that if he could delay the exchange until after the election, they might be able to avoid giving her any money, “because at that point it would not matter if the story became public”.
