    The only question is why did it take so long? Even before he went into politics Trump seemed to have a remarkable ability to get away with ignoring the law.

    Bribery, maybe? Also, in all civil cases he had enough money to wear down any opposition in legal action.

    Eric Trump values Mar-a-Lago at $1 Billion. So what does that make the White House worth?

    Maybe Skittles should do night classes in maths, or night classes in basket weaving as he doesn’t yet have skills he will need to survive in this cruel, cruel world.

    His ruling came in a civil lawsuit brought by Letitia James, New York’s attorney general, days before the start of a non-jury trial that will hear accusations that Trump, and the Trump Organization, lied for a decade about asset values and his net worth to get better terms on bank loans and insurance."

    The MAGA King Donald Trump's persona is a sham,and is not a successful business man as he claim. And now he is going to pay the price. Great day for the truth,very bad day for Donald Trump.

    The MAGA King,Domestic Terrorist Leader and Charlatan Donald Trump motion to have Judge Tanya Chutkan recuse herself has been denied by the judge her. He can use all the underhanded tactics too delay the trial all he wants,but they're going to backfire. https://www.cnn.com/2023/09/27/polit...ion/index.html

    Alina Hannah in court in NYC yesterday : “ “The value is what someone is willing to pay. The Trump properties are Mona Lisa properties” “.

    a) there is only one Mona Lisa, but multiples of Trump or Trump branded properties, and if Mar-a-Lago is worth a billion $ the question is, outside of Saudi Arabia or the Gulf, is there anyone dumb enough to pay such a sum for a property that could be underwater in 10 years time?

    b) value is not price, and cannot always be simply equated- I don’t know if Doral is one of the best golf courses in the US, but is it not conceivable that Trump properties now, regardless of their location and value, are priced below their worth because the Trump brand has become a negative in the market?

    Yes, Stavros, you make a very good point. Value is dictated by desire. Be it a painting, a property or anything else. For Trump, he's fucked. He was always a sham and now, the rest of the world will know it too.
    Mar a Lago, (so fitting! The name sounds like a shitty club) will never fetch such a price, unless it becomes an attraction for the utterly stupid and/or children learning about treason and corruption in grade school. Hopefully, he's having a heart attack now, and dying peacefully in his sleep.

    This is getting silly now. The Telegraph has the staff to do the simple research to show why Trump cannot become the next Speaker of the House. But who takes the Telegraph seriously these days anyway? It appears on the yahoo site, given that most Telegraph articles are hidden behind a paywall. Who would want to pay for this crap?

    "Lawyers for Donald Trump have urged a federal judge to dismiss the criminal case over his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, advancing a sweeping interpretation of executive power that contends that former presidents are immune from prosecution for conduct related to their duties while in office."
    Trump endorses Jim Jordan for House speaker but race remains wide open – US politics live (theguardian.com)

    Duties? What duties? Correct me if I am wrong, but a sitting President has no role in the processing of the election, from the count through to the declarations, the Electoral College, and the Certification of the College results in Congress. The only duty a President has, is to accept the result.
