Georgia Republicans Are Already Working on Trump's Get Out of Jail Free Card

Dutiful and slavishly devoted as they are to a man who compulsively betrays literally anyone he possibly can for the slightest of inconveniences, the Republicans in the Georgia Legislature have found a way to allow Donald Trump to evade criminal prosecution in the Empire State of the South.


Many political commentators, content creators, and news personalities have been making hay as of late the fact that Donald Trump’s fourth indictment for his efforts to overturn his 2020 electoral defeat are state charges — charges which cannot be pardoned by the President of the United States.


Not even the Governor of the State of Georgia can pardon Trump for these crimes, given their interesting system for issuing pardons and granting parole.


Needless to say, Donald Trump’s batshit tear through democratic norms seemed to *FINALLY* be catching up to him.


Not so fast. This is the Republican Party we’re talking about.



Sensing the move to indict the disgraced former president, Georgia Republicans have, with unparalleled speed, passed a new law which allows for the removal of local prosecutors.


Their first intended target? Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, the prosecutor charging Trump and his band of icky nitwits with a criminal conspiracy to subvert the election.


That should make Donald Trump look a lot happier than this.


I suppose surrendering to local authorities in Georgia for the booking and mugshot was also part of a broader plan to “never surrender”, but I digress.


It truly is baffling: the party of limited government and local control can’t seem to limit the amount of control they get to have over the entire process of government, who gets to vote, whose votes get to count, and ultimately who gets to win elections (regardless of the actual, reality-based outcome).


Can’t beat a popular district attorney who wants to turn the page on the carceral state? Just fire them and appoint a hack.


There’s no merit to pointing out the hypocrisy — it’s been obvious for decades and it hasn’t shamed them into slowing down.


There are other things you can do to actually have an impact, like supporting the Public Rights Project with a donation to their legal fight against this new law.

Additionally, we should also try our best to resist calls from the carnival barkers to start a second civil war.


A war that would ostensibly be fought over whether this man gets to bumble around the corridors of power in an endless bluster of arrogance and incompetence.


Again…yikes.
