    So is Trump free to reign supreme for all eternity now?

    Don't worry, there's an election coming up. He'll be judged in the court of public opini........

    Sorry, couldn't finish that with a straight face.

    The US is a few steps away from the death of it's democracy with that ruling.

    #tbt to the first post in this thread, a little over four years ago. It's been a rollercoaster. Wonder what the next five years of Trump will have in store for us?

    That's not really true and it is not fully dead yet. It certainly is a flawed democracy in very many ways, and has been backsliding since Gingrich decided mutual tolerance and forbearance would be casualties of partisanship. But until this week the rule of law was still hanging in there just about. Trump's acquittal and the new precedent this sets followed in short order by Barr's declaration that he will decide solely whether investigation against the executive and associates can proceed has furthered his unitary executive ideology in a massive way. The president is now above the law and will now seek to exact his revenge.

    How can it be a democracy when you need to be a billionaire to even stand a chance of running for President? Rich people decide who we get to vote for.

    Bloomberg and Steyer are the billionaires in the dem primary as far as I am aware, and neither are sure to win. Yes you need lots of money to run, that in of itself is a massive problem, but it can be grassroots funded like Warren's campaign for instance or cosy up to donors like Buttigieg. Money decides policy more than candidates IMO (citizens united is not a football team)

    DOJ operating in full lockstep with Trump now. It's getting very close to full-on mafia state and they are moving fast. The last step is to cancel the elections which looks more likely with each passing day. I think we're fudged (we = humanity).

    History won't be kind on quite a few officials in the Trump administration, with this DOJ shambles just another step in a totalitarian direction.

    If, and I think that's a pretty big if, Trump doesn't get reelected, things will get ugly. Him and his gang won't give up the presidency without a fight, and I can easily see sections of his base turning violent when Trump invevitably declares election fraud or worse on Twitter.
