8 million yen, ( alleged ) miss use of funds, possibly violation of the political funds control law, right, send the police around to Abe sans house, arrest him, detain him, and question him, until he confesses, sorry until he voluntary tells the truth.

He'll voluntarily blame it all on the serfs in his office.

No doubt it is illegal, but on the other hand on the scale of national politics it is peanuts, a rounding error.

Does that mean you think Abe should be allowed to get away with it, no questions asked?

Yes, let him have his day in court. Get it over with. After all, what are you afraid of if his case is so weak?

Who's afraid?

Not to mention the irony of the chattering masses here labelling a billionaire...

Is he? Really? He's not a very good example of one.

....who won the Presidency...

On a technicality.

...you should be so lucky as to lose if this is what constitutes being a loser!

We'll see how lucky he is when he doesn't have presidential immunity or GOP Senators to protect him against criminal investigations and prosecution.

Let the President pursue his legal strategies. 

Okay, but whose money is he wasting? I hope it's his own. What about the judges' time? They could be hearing cases that are about a bit more than one pathetic old man's ego, and don't taxpayers foot the bill for all the time they're in court listening to Trump's lawyers make fools of themselves?

I love this daily humiliation of trump.

He keep losing day after day and we still aren't tired of it!

Ah, but just wait for the inevitable "we've still got the SC and the Senate thank god, and with 70 million supporters Trump is all set for 2024."

Hey, I can turn out this rubbish as well and not mean a single word of it. I wonder how well it pays.

ReasonandWisdomNipponToday  07:40 am JST

Abe was a rock.

At a time when other Japanese PM would quit every 6 months to a year. 

If someone with even half the charm and political acumen of Junichiro Koizumi, Tony Blair or Barack Obama had been up for the job a useless hereditary parasite like Abe would never have got a look in.

If a dinner party in 2018 or a cherry blossom event is the best you have against this man, I can't take you seriously.

So you don't think that wrongdoing or illegal activities shouldn't be criticised and punished?

Trump is literally fighting for his freedom, as the minute he leaves the WH and becomes a private citizen, he is facing a grunt load of legal battles that he has managed to avoid as being the sitting president.

It ought to be very entertaining. He won't have immunity from prosecution or juries stacked with obliging Republican Senators to bail him out, and it's increasingly looking like the only person he'll be able to get to represent him is Rudy Giuliani.

There are a lot of low-information people out there who are avoiding the truth of what's happening in the U.S. right now who may be in for quite a surprise they will not be prepared for.

per Rasmussen Reports;

Rasmussen. Total impartiality guaranteed, then.

"BREAKING: Look who is now in charge of PA, WI, MI, and GA

Circuit Courts have been re-assigned

Effective November 20th, 2020, ordered persuant to Title 28, United States Code, Section 42

MI - Brett M. Kavanaugh

WI - Amy Coney Barrett

PA - Samual A. Alito

GA - Clarence Thomas"

So you think that unlike the other Republican judges who have been throwing out Trump's cases recently, this lot will all bend to his will and deliver him the election?

I think certain publications have an obligation to keep their readers up to speed on what's happening. Curating the news based on personal agendas goes against the most basic journalistic codes and ethics.

Tell that to Newsmax. Wait a moment though - it's only media outlets that report stories you don't like that are going against journalistic codes and ethics, isn't it. No problem if they're all saying good stuff about President Trump, right?

2024 now would be a fantastic time to continue to build up his base.

Do you know the last time a president had a second non consecutive term? He has more chance of overturning this one.

His base may look pretty impressive now but in 2024 I think we'll have found that a big chunk of it is made up of fairly reasonable people who will have dismissed Trump as soiled goods. They'll either give him credit for the strong economy but remember the narcissism, bankruptcies, nepotism, endless lies and fabrications, scandals and botched handling of the COVID-19 crisis, or decide it was all a big con perpetrated by a shameless fraud. Either way I don't see him having much of a base to speak of by 2024, especially not if the GOP and Fox News turn on him. Conservatives generally tend not to like losers very much.

"So you don't think he has any chance of changing the outcome and beating Biden, yet..."

Biden will do that for himself, he already is

"Do that for himself?" Do what? Change the outcome of the election? You mean Biden is somehow going to mess things up so badly between now and January that Trump gets a second term?

"Pursue this?" You mean keep disputing the election outcome? Haven't you acknowledged that it's pointless?

overturning it, I do, but moving forward and focusing on 2024 now would be a fantastic time to continue to build up his base

So you didn't mean that he should use "his constitutional authority and pursue all avenues" to change the outcome, but use his power to pursue his own political ambitions? It doesn't look like he's thinking that way.

Trump is a failure and becomes a one term president. By 2024 too old to run.

They've been saying that about Biden as well but I suspect that by then his brand will have been tarnished a lot by his refusal to concede this election, revelations about his finances and the outcomes of court cases. A lot of otherwise sane and reasonable people who support him now may well prefer someone else on the GOP ticket in 2024 - someone younger without a thumping election defeat string of bankruptcies and criminal convictions to his name.

"This election democratic? Lol!"

Lol because black votes were counted in ? Interesting conception of democracy

Well, it's an established fact that there's nothing very democratic about US Presidential elections while some States get one Electoral College vote for every 200,00 or so people and others have to make do with one for every 700,000 people, and most States use the winner take all method of allocating the Electoral College votes so that you can end up with a President that most people didn't vote for. Yes, I know - "California and New York don't get to decide who's President, thank God" - well, guess what. Neither does Texas. The system screws over Republican voters in blue States as well but I don't suppose diehard GOP hacks care much about that when they win.

*"they know they don’t have a case whatsoever just like Trump doesn’t have one to overturn this...election."*

Finally he concedes

Ah, but note the cunning ellipsis before "election" as if to imply that it's all been rigged just like The Great Leader has been making out. Besides, he says that Trump doesn't have a case and yet writes in another comment:

bass4funkToday  10:22 am JST

...I do think Trump should pursue this until the end...

Pursue it until the end even though he doesn't have a case? I don't see that ending well. Then there's something about "build no on his face" (???!!?!??!!!?) so I don't think any of this should be taken too seriously.

As long as the GOP keeps the Senate

What a stupid system you've got there. I thought the Japanese vote value disparity in elections was bad but it's nothing compared to the US Senate, with each State getting two Senators regardless of the population size, and then actually letting these people wield some serious power, e.g. to approve Supreme Court nominations. I don't know how anyone can defend it either, especially not with that tired, tedious old "it's not the east and west coasts that run the country" line because when Democrats win a majority it's voters in large red States like Texas who get shafted.
