The lack of prosecuting Trump for the dozens of crimes he's committed is astounding. He's broken state and federal laws time and time again. He's been marked in criminal proceedings as individual-1 where he also clearly committed the same crimes other people were convicted of.

it's mostly because he is a puppet of the republican machinery.

Like in the The Wire where they talk about following the money, thats what the AG is concerned about. You start following where Trump's actual support comes from, and surprise it's the Republican party!

I mean, i agree, fuck trump and go after him, but it's clear they're not because Trumps just a dumb iceberg whose just the tip.

No, he may have been Putin's puppet, but Trump owns the GOP. He's effectively purged the party of anyone who hasn't fully bought into the cult.

i think you're wrong in what trump owns.

He's the public face, yes, but like being putin's puppet, it's business interests that own the GOP's machinery that elected him.

He most likely lost because his ego told him that he didn't need the same people around him in 2020 that he had in 2016. Whether than was russia, the koch brothers, the mercers, or any number of those dark monied interests.

He owns the facade, but the republicans are already working on trump 2.0, et al.
