Nah, he'll die of "natural causes."  Ya know, kinda like how Epstein totally killed himself.

There's a key difference between Epstein and Trump, which is that Epstein had information that could have incriminated many, many other people (including Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and the Duke of York), whereas with Trump the trail probably dries up insofar as finding bigger fish goes.

I just really hope that the next president wouldn't pardon Trump of everything that he has done.

I still consider it likely because although Democrats are in all ways superiour to Trump-cult, they would definitely want to avoid the hassle that comes from when Republicans start shooting up people in the streets and cry about partisan politics and Fascism if Trump faces any sort of consequences for his crimes.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Trump can only be pardoned of so much by the next President. There's still state-level charges he could be facing in New York.

(Of course, Andrew Cuomo might decide to pardon him of those, too.)

But keep in mind that accepting a pardon means admitting guilt, which opens you up to civil litigation.

Of course, i also saw that she requested specifically for it to only happen after the election, with the next president. So this is directly against her own wishes too.

Mitch doesn't care about his OWN actions and statements, much less statements and actions by other people.  He's going to try and set the record for a SC nomination in the next 47 days.

And if Trump loses, he'll try to ram through a nomination in the lame-duck period.

McConnell won't let it get to that point. He's going to give Trump a win before the election.

EDIT: Here's how he'll do it:

1. Trump nominates someone.
2. McConnell moves that the nominee be considered by the full Senate without a recommendation from the Judiciary Committee.
3. The Democrats filibuster the motion.
4. McConnell moves to change the rules of the Senate to end the filibuster on motions to advance to a vote on a nominee without a positive recommendation from a committee.
5. This vote passes.
6. Trump gets a third Supreme Court Justice.

Someone suggested that they might postpone the vote until after the election so that they can rile up the voterbase by saying that the supreme court seat is on the line. ...And after the elections but before Biden gets sworn in Trump would use his last few days to nominate and vote in a Republican anyway as a final "fuck you" to Democrats.

...But McConnell couldn't wait two hours before saying that he'll get in a new justice ASAP. So there went that theory.

Sometimes it's better to demoralize your opponents than it is to rile up your own base.

This might have backfired on him as fundraising for key tickets on th Democratic side just sky rocketed.

McConnell probably doesn't care about keeping his Senate seat at this point. Unless the Democrats can win a ton of Senate seats in 2020 and 2022 to give them 67, while also winning the Presidency in 2020 and holding the House in both years, and then be willing to impeach judges over nothing other than political differences, he'll have accomplished what he set out to do: complete the task laid out for the Republicans a half-century ago by Lewis Powell and put control of the federal courts firmly in conservative hands for decades.

Of course, this could also lead to a decision greeted comparably to Dred Scott being made and Democrats getting elected in droves on the promise of ignoring whatever said decision might be.

McConnell's seat is also super safe. Regardless of what Twitter roses think, there is literally no one that the Democrats could put against him that has any significant chance of beating him. Republican voters don't vote for candidates or policy, they vote against Democrats. And Kentucky has Republican voters to spare.
