Trump's legal team just filed three motions to dismiss Special Counsel Jack Smith's four-count indictment related to the events of January 6 and alleged efforts to "overturn" the 2020 election.
Supreme Court seems the only venue where there is a chance for justice.
Thank You Julie, Where would we be if not for your spot on reporting and the distinctive way of doing so. Oh how I will be praying this gets to Supreme Court ASAP!
Hopeful SCOTUS will take up the cases where the charge is inappropriate: Enron 1512 for the convicted’s sakes. As for President Trump, I could never see the Govt proving the claim beyond a reasonable doubt, since he authorized the NG two days prior to stop any potential disruption of certification.
"Trump-Russia collusion perpetrators earn book deals, cable news gigs, and lucrative stints at think tanks; 2020 election deniers get reputation-destroying investigations, public humiliation, and jail time." Touche.
Justice will prevail
Thanks for this piece, Julie. It appears that President Trump's attorneys have done yeoman's work in laying the foundation for a direct appeal to the Supreme Court. Of course, I'm not going to hold my breath awaiting a favorable decision from that Marxist wearing a black robe, especially based upon her remarkably biased statements regarding President Trump. One can only pray that the majority of the Supremes' recognize the frightening attack on the 1st Amendment, first and foremost, before they even delve into the unconstitutional bastardization of 1512(c)(2). However, based upon the recent guidance which the Supremes' rendered regarding federal government censorship, I'm increasingly skeptical about solid, rational decisions from said Supremes'. Again, currently, prayer is about our only option.
Excellent analysis Julie, and thank you for making this confusing case understandable.
Thanks Julie for your reporting on this grave miscarriage of justice. I am wondering why another motion was not filed to dismiss on the grounds President Trump was already found “Not guilty” in the second impeachment attempt and as a federally instituted procedural trial decision the “Double Jeopardy” protection should demand dismissal.
As it demonstrated in Brunson v. Adams, SCOTUS is as political as DOJ. Sadly, the function of SCOTUS is to protect the status quo.
