The Trump presidency was mostly stressful and shameful - but it had one recurring source of comedy: the way Trump kept cutting his apologists off at the knees by habitually confessing (even bragging about) the thing his apologists denied he did.

When you write your contrarian "Trump wasn't plotting a coup" column, you are just *inviting* Fate the very next day to release documentary evidence, "Hi this is me, Donald J. Trump, plotting a coup right here. Signed, Donald J. Trump." https://nytimes.com/2021/07/30/us/politics/trump-justice-department-election.html

    Allen Weisselberg could get off lightly even if he’s convicted

    That limits the D.A.’s leverage to get him to flip on Trump

Who the investigators work for?  If state or local, the GOPers will cancel out anything they do.

Is not the State DOJ separate from the politics of the Governor, etc?

In most states, it is not a single entity.  Most have an attorney general who has a staff that conducts investigations.  There are also other state law enforcement agencies that could conduct investigations.  Then add in the power of the state legislatures since they control the money that funds all state agencies.  

In the Red states, such as Georgia, the power of the Republican controlled legislature as well as all state officials being Republicans would have a tremendous influence on any investigation.

My question is Who do the investigators in GA work for?  Which GA state agency?  I fear the Republicans in control of the state will dampen down any investigation or results.

Well, they have pursued it this far so who knows?

The current Attorney General of Georgia is (R) Christopher M. Carr. Carr was appointed by Governor Nathan Deal following the resignation of Sam Olens..........

"..........In 2019, Carr joined 17 other Republican Attorney Generals in suing to invalidate the Affordable Care Act (ACA), stating, “We believe the Court will uphold our position that the ACA is unconstitutional.”[9][10]

Carr supported legislation in Georgia to revise voting regulations.[11]  ................

Steve Bannon will face criminal charges from the January 6 committee after he confirmed he would NOT be testifying today and is invoking executive privilege 

49170691-0-image-a-48_1634219869176.jpg

Bannon's lawyer on Thursday wrote a letter to the Jan 6 committee chair Bennie Thompson, reiterating to the committee that the former Trump adviser had no intention of testifying.

Great haul his a$$ off to jail

Not going to happen since this is just a stale tactic.    Bannon's lawyer has already said that Bannon will comply if ordered to be by court.   So now we are seeing the first step in that process;  The committee filing contempt charges.     Bannon's lawyer will then take the charges to a Federal court claiming an Ex-President can involve executive privileges. 

  My prediction is that the Court will not even hear the case since Bannon wasn't working for the White House on January 6th (or after the election was over since Trump fired him long before that).      Bannon facing jail time will thus comply.

Just heard from the last House lawyer who was the one who last did this in 1983.  A criminal referral is just that - an order for a trial and it does not involve a remedy where Bannon can purge himself by testifying.  The process is a lengthy one which would probably have an appeal and if convicted it is a misdemeanor.  In other words, no teeth.

UPDATE: We’re going to trial against Donald Trump’s hotel and inaugural committee. There's extensive evidence the committee illegally enriched the Trump family—the opposite of what a nonprofit is supposed to do. My office is working to recover $1 million. https://politico.com/news/2021/11/08/judge-claim-trumps-inaugural-committee-private-business-520380

Is it surprising that the Trump Crime Family stole from the Inauguration funds?

Steve Bannon stole money from the fund he set up to finance Donald Trump's beloved wall.   Did Trump seek to punish him for that?  No, he pardoned him which is proof positive that the 'wall' and everything else is just HS red meat and the only thing they are all interested in is the grift.

A Watergate Prosecutor was on CNN and said the better option would have been for Congress to charge Bannon with Civil Contempt.  He would have been arrested by the Sergeant at Arms and incarcerated until he agreed to appear.  If he then pleaded the 5th he would have been granted immunity which would then compel him to testify truthfully or face prison.

He said that the political climate may have weighed in against this.  Not wishing to ruffle Republican feathers.
