    Are you ready to put the Trump presidency behind us and move forward once Biden takes office?

    Or do you want to exact some sort of political revenge for the damage he has done to our country?




    How important is it that the new President try to heal this nation and put the division behind us?

    Are the problems too great to continue investigations of the present Administration?

    Would this be a losing political issue for the new President?

    1. I'm pretty vengeful.

    I don't think ignoring the criminality will be healing for anyone. Exposing the corruption will hopefully make trumpers open their eyes. If there aren't investigations they will continue to think trump did no wrong.
    They've been investigating for 5 years and have nothing. But they continue. If they just get MORE information, if they're just allowed to go on more fishing expeditions they're positive they'll find SOMETHING.

    22. trump and Barr in particular need to be bought to justice.

    Let the chips fall where they may on the likes of Kushner, Navarro et al.

    4. There needs to be independent council legislation.

    This should never happen again. I do not care if it is Democratic, Republican or Independent there needs to be consequences. The President is not a Unitary Executive.

    6. Going after this administration is not "political revenge"!

    It is very important that a thorough examination of all the illegalities committed by the Trump administration is undertaken. We need to 1) send a clear message that no one is above the law, and prosecute as many people as is necessary and 2) fix the loopholes that allowed them to seize more power than they should have given our system of government.

    We also need to do a deep dive into all of his court appointees and scour their testimony for falsehoods, which would be grounds for impeachment.

    7. Ignoring Republican criminality hurt Obama

    It did nothing to heal the country and instead emboldened the radical GOP. Biden will not be able to placate anyone who didn't vote for him. That's just the state of the country now. Trolling them the way Trump trolls Dems is unnecessary, but attempting to cater to them is a fool's errand.

    And besides, if there are no repercussions or consequences for the unprecedented things Trump has done, we might as well just admit that the president is a fixed-term king.
    Even back then they were claiming that which they didn't agree with was somehow "criminal", when it wasn't.

    9. Not revenge

    Accountability.

    Investigations that lead, where necessary, to prosecutions, is the only way we (hopefully) repeat what has transpired. Republican perpetrators have no shame. They will move on, get their Fox or AEI sinecures, and then resurface during the next campaign, and the next, and the next. They need to be held accountable, and be seen to be held accountable. From Trump to the guy committing crimes against humanity by forcibly sterilizing women in concentration camps. From Barr to the unidentified troops beating protesters. From Azar to the toadies in CDC and NIH that modified reports to meet political goals. Etc., etc.
    And the thread goes on and on.

    I'm glad they feel this way though.

    They won't be able to say anything of consequence then when AG Barr indites those in Obama's administration/FBI/DOJ/CIA for the crimes they have committed. REAL CRIMES, not made up, we don't agree so it's illegal for a Republican President to do.

    Ever since Trump got elected, all these jerkazoids have done is plot revenge because Hillary lost.

    They want to punish millions of people for not voting for Hillary ( now Biden).

    And they some how think that will bring the Nation together ( ? ).

    See, they expect President Trump to "bring the Nation together" by DOING WHAT THE DEMOCRATS DEMAND he do. If he doesn't then he's dividing the nation.

    And they're positive Biden will bring the nation to together - by doing what DEMOCRATS WANT, of course. If Republicans don't like it, then it isn't Biden's fault, it will be the fault of Republicans who won't fall in line.

    But then you know that, didn't you.

    “Compromise” to the Democrats is sit down, shut up, and do everything we say. Everything else is non-negotiable.
    It’s not a civil war until both sides show up.

    Hey, Democrats, in case the incompetent old dotard wins thanks to Chinese and oligarch money, are YOU prepared to hear 'Resist' for four years coming back at ya, and half of America saying Biden isn't their President?

    Kenfuck, Are you ready to accept a 2nd term of the Trump Presidency and move forward when he wins re-election in a few months?
