Was that helpful to furthering the conversation?
I thought so. Maga thinks everything is rigged. I don’t subscribe to that point of view. The justice system was fine until Trump came along. We weren’t talking about Obama judges and Trump judges before Trump came along and made it an issue with all his crimes he has to defend. What better way to defend yourself than to accuse all the different entities and people involved in prosecuting you of nefarious things. When your excuse is “I was the President and could have killed my rivals legally if I wanted to” you have a problem.

What a scenario. Trump gets off on the basis he as President is so immune from prosecution that he could have assassinated his rivals and be immune from prosecution unless he was impeached first. Trump was impeached twice but only by Democrats, so according to his lawyer’s calculations they weren’t real impeachments because the Republicans didn’t sign off on it.

So Biden could order the assassination on Trump today by whatever means he decides and is totally immune from prosecution unless he is impeached by both parties. If the Dems do what the Cons did and just vote that Biden is innocent in impeachment hearings then Biden would be totally within his rights as President to kill Trump and there is absolutely nothing the GOP could do about it according to Trumps lawyer.

It's too bad that we have gotten to a point where it has become so important who appointed a given judge/justice. It shouldn't be the case that an "Obama judge" judges much differently than a "Trump judge." But, alas.

That's a tactic of the left. Looks like intelligence caught them doing it and know who it was.

Before you say it, Mori. Save your breath. I know you think this is a random person on Twitter who doesn't know anything, and will dismiss it, but you would be mistaken. That's ok, your opinions are known.

I have no doubt that many Dems hold their view. Sad.

It’s a tactic of the left and right and it’s been done a lot lately.

If the only people it can influence are people who already agree with the conclusion, it’s not “awesome.” “Awesome” means it makes a difference.

That’s just for one of his appeals in one of his cases. :P (The timeline for how his presidential immunity appeal affects the trial date of his federal election case.)

Even CNN? They are attempting to become more balanced by having on people that represent all sides.

Really? Does that mean they lose their spot on the trusted source list?

Quite the opposite, my friend.

Knowing Trump, it's a scare tactic.

I was assuming it was something from a long time ago, but it was actually from an interview just a few weeks ago:
