    Here's a hint.

    If you decide to flounce out of a thread in an attempt to save whatever shred of dignity you've got left, you have to actually leave.

    I think that goes doubly for a second flounce-out in a single thread.

    The Democratic Party's illegal "Sanctuary Cities" is a giant F U to American Citizens.

    Of course he can. Double Jeopardy doesn't occur when the legal proceedings are by separate sovereigns.

    If that conduct was a federal offense, you may be tried and convicted in both a state and federal court. This is known as the "dual sovereignty doctrine," and it is an exception to the "Double Jeopardy Clause" of the U.S. Constitution.

    You're right. They can try him again.

    They just won't, because of the Petite doctrine.

    Rightwing vigilantism and contempt for the rule of law is not ‘justice.’

    Well, if that is the case, the whole political issue is a local issue, and Trump and his outraged national base are out of luck. In short, another non issue used to stir up the the farmers in Iowa.
