Trump’s insurrection mob update 7/26/22

Bad tweets by the Washington Post

The Secret Service didn’t cause the controversy. Trump caused it by wanting to get rid of the magnetometers and wanting to go to the Capitol with his mob.

How would a DOJ trial of Trump work?

Grand juries do not have to be unanimous. The regular jury would have to be unanimous. The difficulty of finding jurors who don’t know the case was discussed on MSNBC.

I’m still not worried that prosecuting Trump will divide the country

More than ever, it’s clear Trump should be prosecuted.

January 6 poll – majority thinks Trump is responsible

I don’t care if indicting Trump would divide the country

One argument I have heard against charging Trump is that it would divide the country. Thi sis a poor argument for several reasons.

  1. He certainly appears to be guilty. Nobody is above the law. I doubt he goes to jail but I hope he does. The low-level people who invaded the Capitol because of him are going to jail. The insurrection wouldn’t have happened without Trump so he belongs there, too.
  2. Could it divide the country more than it already is? Remember, 70% of Republicans won’t even admit that Biden won a fair election.
  3. Republicans don’t care about dividing the country. The Supreme Court abortion decision made by their judges is very divisive but they clearly don’t care. Democrats shouldn’t care either. The only way to respond to Republican tactics is to fight fire with fire. Biden needs to get over the idea that we’re still in the 1970s. See the tweet below.

Update on the Trump mob 6/18/22

Trump should be prosecuted if the facts warrant it

As said in the tweet, not prosecuting him would be worse. I’m not worried about dividing the country. It’s already divided. The Trump cult can’t get much worse.
