We should consider what will happen with Donald Trump once he leaves the White House. Some former presidents have taken up painting, some build houses for charity. What will Trump do? What will happen to him?
Before leaving office, will he self-pardon?
Will he be involved with the Republican Party and in what capacity?
Will he start campaigning for President in 2024?
Will he flee the United States for a sympathetic country that has no extradition treaty with the US?
Will Cyrus Vance be trying Trump for bank fraud, insurance fraud and tax evasion?
Will Trump be prosecuted for obstruction of justice, violating the Constitution’s emoluments clause, federal tax evasion?
Will Letitia James prosecute Trump for tax fraud re the Trump Organization?
Will Trump stand trial for the alleged rape of E. Jean Carroll?
Will he be able to have enough speaking engagements to cover his $420 million dollar debt?
Will he leave office silently and gracefully?
So many possibilities!
Has anyone any thoughts?
We can bet Tweety will continue to be disruptive and to look out for himself. Read more here:

Resists transition planning, fires officials, Barr orders investigation, responsible DOJ official resigns in protest–what next? It seems we haven’t reached the bottom of irresponsible behavior yet.
william hungerford—how right you are!
As an ex-president, Trump could disclose the secrets he learned while in office, current and former officials fear https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/trump-possible-security-risk/2020/11/09/f19c853e-229e-11eb-952e-0c475972cfc0_story.html
Start a PAC to maintain his hold on the Republican Party
I guess my list will have plenty of add-ons

What’s Bill Barr thinking? How low will he go to keep his job for two more months?
Watching the unsavory parade of government officials who have sworn their honor to defend the constitution, yet casually disregard their oaths in service to Trump (after he lost the election!) leads me to one speculation.
It seems that the consensus conclusion is that Trump is not going away, and it is best not to court his disfavor. So much for any hope that the Republican Party will chuck Trump and return to normalcy.
Barr incurred Trump’s wrath by being unable to pull a rabbit out of his hat and present an October surprise. Now, he is simply fleshing out his resume for his future in Trumpworld and doing anything to ensure The Donald’s favor.
Anyone else care to guess?
Can reports, that Republican Senators secretly accept, even welcome, Biden’s election and merely wish to tread softly until Tweety is gone, be consistent with the idea that the Trump Administration was an aberration which will die with Trump’s defeat? Given the many who still see nothing to dislike or fear in trumpism, I think not. The GOP has long lacked a “raison d’etre” other than opportunism.
