    There's about as much evidence of that as there is of election tampering...There is no evidence that he organized anything to do with the Capitol riot. He is guilty of creating the atmosphere that led to it, of goading the crowd and underreacting but that hardly constitute violently trying to overthrow the government... I wouldn't be surprised if he mentioned the military in one of his rants however again that hardly constitutes as an attempt to overthrown the government. As I said, exaggeration that is on the same level as many of Trump's self aggrandizing claims.

    There is so much he did wrong that there's no need to try to make it worse...

    This is a great precedent that allows Trump when he returns to the White House to use the FBI against Clinton, Obama, and Hunter Biden. Revenge will be sweet.

    I suspect you have no concept of how law enforcement normally works in a civilized society.

    Memories of the infamous and unprecedented tete-a-tete private dinner between Trump and Comey...as well as the ill timed FBI announcement shortly before the election that Clinton's email investigation was reopened. Oh and let's not forget the failed attempt at using the courts to overturn a valid election. It might be hard to win an election from a jail cell...

    Great quote in the NYT ..

    Bret: With Trump, the line between the shambolic and the sinister is often blurred. His entire being is like Inspector Clouseau doing an impression of Jack Nicholson in “The Shining,” or maybe vice versa.

    This was a bit of a shit show ... filed by lawyers who are not on the Florida Bar and apparently did not actually ask the judge to do anything other than read a bunch of word vomit.

    Trump has stiffed so many lawyers on legal fees, the competent ones are not interested in taking his cases...
