Are people noticing that most of the establishment *freak out* about the Alvin Bragg charges involves elite people worrying that, in the future, powerful people might be held accountable for crime? LIKE THAT"S A BAD THING

I think those on the Right screaming the loudest about the Trump Indictments feel most at risk should Trump decide to burn it all down on his way out.

The message is clear, if they can go after (the crimes committed by) Trump, they can go after (the crimes of) anyone - and that is NOT a bad thing.

Let's also add that the GOP finds it even more contemptuous that a black man dare to be the one to challenge Trump's law breaking.. There's no mistaking there racism in all of this it's palatable at this point & not just coming from Trump either it's his choir of apologists dog whistling to the base

Yup, it’s called the two-tiered justice system. Even people who know they would be prosecuted for the same accused crime find themselves screaming injustice because the powerful is being held to the same justice as everyone else.

Yes. Also noticing that the same people that say A Bragg is pursuing a case with "too small of a crime" had no problem when Michael Cohen was prosecuted and went to jail for the "same" crime. Also, they don't even know what the (rumored) 30+ counts are!

But the Elite expect everyone else to be held to account..we need to make sure e that your financial standing doesn’t matter when it comes to justice! Everyone will be held accountable, you do the crime you do the time!

My hope is Smith goes all the way and gets every member in Congress that partook in the Insurrection. THAT will show NO ONE is above the law and the elite who always believed they were above the rest are no more.

It breaks the unwritten, rarely spoken rule of our society.

That powerful, wealthy, white men don't face consequences for anything except screwing over others of their group.

Good to see it start, hope that it continues. Let them sweat.

Considering The Great Conservative Freakout originally began when we elected a Black man to the White House (and then had the audacity to do it a second time)? Yeah, that checks.

Yet the rubes think it somehow applies to them. Like they’re gonna find themselves having to commit an election crime by paying off a porn star days before a national election!

I am really starting to wonder if Pence is a freak who thinks he can be Pres OR if he did something criminal ??? His behavior has been so weird I am thinking he did do something illegal. Crimes are crimes no matter who you are.

I always figured Pence was just wound a bit too tight, but now that you mention it your thought has definite merit.

After all, how do you hang with the corrupt without getting the stink on you.

As someone once wrote,

Pence walked in Trump’s gutter for 4 years. Of course he’s dirty.
