are the Democrats going to make "an example" out of Donald Trump and put him in Federal prison?

to send a message to any governor or AG in other states that dare to step up to them?

    "Democrats" can't put anybody in federal prison.  It would help if you had a basic knowledge of how the legal system works.

    For federal charges (and for many state charges), the first step is a grand jury indictment.  And, while prosecutors can normally get an indictment with no effort for garden variety crimes, "political" charges are different.  Because grand juries are picked by the judges, a grand jury will have a decent mix of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.  So if there is not the evidence to support the charges, the prosecutors will be unable to get an indictment.

    Defendants then have a right to a jury trial.  And for a jury trial, the defense has the same input into jury selection as the prosecutors do.  And more importantly, the jury verdict has to be  unanimous.  And the trial is in open court where the media can attend and report on the evidence.  

    In other words, the only way that Donald Trump can be sent to prison is if the evidence shows that he is guilty.  Unfortunately for Donald Trump, the evidence shows that he is guilty.

    The Clinton's need to go to Federal Prison first, before any other past Presidents go.

    They gonna try.  Like they been doing for 4 years and a month.

    Best they let the guy drift into obscurity, and remove his name from anything they can find. Tear down anything he built.

    But, Trump did  threaten them, "I'll be back" he said.

    The State of New York is going to put him in a State Penitentiary like they do the rest of the common criminals.

  • The only thing Democrats are doing is making people see what fools they are.. Trying to impeach someone who isn't even president.. The chief justice already said he is not going to show up for the democrat clown show..

    People who go to Federal prisons are guilty of committing Federal crimes. If Trump winds up in one, it's because he deserves to be there -- or do you think everyone in prison is innocent, and just being made an example?
