vanity - Possible reason for no indictments (yet)?
self | 2/8/20 | NewJerseyJoe

Posted on 02/08/2020 3:40:41 PM PST by NewJerseyJoe

As we've heard about increasing numbers of sealed indictments over the last couple of years, a lot of people (myself included) have been asking, "WHEN is the justice going to begin?"

Different reasons have been advanced: waiting for IG's report, waiting for Durham's report, waiting until all the i's are dotted, etc. And there's probably a lot of truth to those.

However, when I heard Trump's speech on the day after acquittal, he mentioned the number of federal judges appointed -- now 191 confirmed. And that got me to thinking... maybe Trump had to restore the judiciary first, to handle the sheer volume of cases that would be forthcoming (and the inevitable appeals, etc.). Maybe there had to be a minimum number of judge vacancies filled before the wheels of justice can start turning?

Unless they're all going to be military tribunals -- and I don't know if there are sufficient personnel to handle such a large number.

Just my random thoughts, FReepers, you can go ahead and skewer me now. 😏

Well, he’d certainly want judges he considered reliably willing to stick to the law and not those who cling to his opposition.

There won’t be any indictments.

This is all for show.

Barr is complicit. So is Huber.

Deal with it.

Sucker. All those ‘sealed indictments’ are a wide variety of court documents, very few having anything to do with any kind of politics.

There’s some chance that a few coupsters get some charges, but don’t bet your house on it.

They all hate POTUS inside the DOJ building and do not want to support him. It’s that simple.

It’s too late now anyway. If people are indicted now they will be able to delay until after the election, and if Trump loses everything will be dropped.

No skewers. I think only Trump and Barr really know what’s happening at this point.

My own personal “guess:” The institutional power of the CIA and FBI, leading the vast permanent Fed.gov bureaucracy, is so great - no President can simply fire them all, or send them to jail without causing a civil war or destroying his own plans. They are America’s Praetorian Guard.

Trump has probably replaced enough apparatchiks in their ranks, exposed the worst ones, and they have experienced enough public embarrassment, that the deep-staters are laying low - for now. Its a kind of truce.

What happens if Trump is elected again - maybe the war gets hot again.

GOP Senators are already publicly balking at investigating the Bidens. Can you imagine the fainting sessions amongst these so-called Republicans if the “Trump” DOJ actually indicted prominent swamp Democrats? With no political support on his flanks it is impossible for Trump to criminally engage the coupists. Therefore, Barr’s job is to steer the coup into a political matter for 2020.

Hillary clinton wa indictable when comes summarized her crimes at the press conference. Sessions/trump decided too not exercise their own judgement.

Where are the investigation reports on the clinton foundation, uranium wash thru to russia, sedition by Clinton and Comey Lynch and Obama; why wasn’t;t Biden investigated by the DOJ two years ago when he confessed on video at the CFR meeting? Why? Why?

No equal justice under the law in the US no matter who the president is.

Correct. The Trump plan has been to make Spygate and the ongoing coup a political issue for 2020. He knows the GOP will never support prosecution of their fellow swamp Democrats to the benefit of Donald J. Trump.

Corrected:

Hillary Clinton was indictable when Comey summarized her crimes at the press conference in 2016. Sessions/Trump decided to not exercise their own judgement. Bill Clinton got to Lynch on the tarmac in Phoenix.

Where are the investigation reports on the Clinton foundation, uranium wash thru to Russia, sedition by Clinton and Comey, Lynch, and Obama; why wasn’t Biden investigated by the DOJ two years ago when he confessed on video at the CFR meeting? Where is the DOJ investigation on the murder of Seth Rich? Where is the investigation report on Debbie Washer-Woman Schultz and the Pakistani Tech guys? Obama and the Iran cash deal?

No equal justice under the law in the US no matter who the president is.

Cool. Another hope-porn theory.

Let's put it on a Twitter roll and make up a bunch of stuff to support it.

Meanwhile, reality says that Sessions was recused, Rosenstein was a black hat, Huber was tasked to do very little, and Horowitz was a whitewasher.

It all comes down to Barr and Durham.

I have considered that Trump needed to stack the courts with just judges who would uphold the law.

He’s been busy rooting out the Seep state and this latest impeachment fiasco blew up in the dems faces.

It could not have worked out better.

By trying to impeach him over the Ukrainian deal they exposed their own connections with it and now that they have, it gives Trump an excellent reason to investigate further.

I would love to see justice done and people going to jail, too.

No skewer, but I disagree. It’s not like the courts have vast among of judicial vacancies. They just happen and a drip drip basis all the time.
I’d be surprised if Durham issues a report. Prosecutors produce indictments, not reports. Per one of the posters below on the reaction of some GOP Senators of getting to the bottom of the Biden malarkey, I’m not holding g out any undue hope anything is going to happen
