I can't help but wonder exactly which one(s) of djt's crooked dealings will be the final straw that breaks the camel's back? Will the Congressional Republicans push back on his redirection of military funding to fund his wall project? Will it be something akin to the income tax evasion that finally did in Al Capone? Will the post-Trumpian DOJ, either state or federal ever really bring charges that will put him behind bars? Seeing a past president prosecuted, much less convicted and jailed, is so foreign to our traditions that I can't really imagine that ever taking place.

Ironically, after all the traditions, norms, protocols that djt has kicked to the curb, it might be those very guidelines that keeps his sorry behind out of prison?

In early Spring of this year, an Air National Guard crew made a routine trip from the U.S. to Kuwait to deliver supplies.

What wasn’t routine was where the crew stopped along the way: President Donald Trump’s Turnberry resort, about 50 miles outside Glasgow, Scotland.

Since April, the House Oversight Committee has been investigating why the crew on the C-17 military transport plane made the unusual stay — both en route to the Middle East and on the way back — at the luxury waterside resort, according to several people familiar with the incident. But they have yet to receive any answers from the Pentagon.

The inquiry is part of a broader, previously unreported probe into U.S. military expenditures at and around the Trump property in Scotland. According to a letter the panel sent to the Pentagon in June, the military has spent $11 million on fuel at the Prestwick Airport — the closest airport to Trump Turnberry — since October 2017, fuel that would be cheaper if purchased at a U.S. military base. The letter also cites a Guardian report that the airport provided cut-rate rooms and free rounds of golf at Turnberry for U.S. military members.

Taken together, the incidents raise the possibility that the military has helped keep Trump’s Turnberry resort afloat — the property lost $4.5 million in 2017, but revenue went up $3 million in 2018.

And Republicans pitch a fit that Obama made money off a book he actually wrote.

They've destroyed their credibility forever, all to prop up a clown that no amount of complaining is going to keep the rest of the world from viewing as an idiot. I hope playing "team sports" was worth it to 'em, because when the bill for it comes, it's gonna take eeeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvverything. Their brand is wrecked for good, to all but the staunchest cultists who just can't let anything go.
