The alleged charge would be incitement to riot, and the president has demonstrably never called for violence in any way, the basis of the indictment can only be that Trump incited violence by repeatedly claiming that the November election was rigged and that he was the legitimate victor. (The same claim has essentially been made already by those like Sen. Patty Murray, who have blamed Senators Hawley and Cruz for inciting the Capitol Hill riot just by objecting to the legitimacy of the electors.)
This unfortunately for the leftist lunatics means that the central issue of the trial will be the president’s claims of election fraud. Short of reversing the election itself, such a trial would be the best thing President Trump could hope for and the worst thing for the election’s declared winners the Democrats.
The best thing going for Trump will be Discovery process. In the law of common law jurisdictions, Discovery is a pre-trial procedure in a lawsuit in which each party, through the law of civil procedure, can obtain evidence from the other party or parties by means of discovery devices such as interrogatories, requests for production of documents, requests for admissions. Imagine calling in the counters, the thousands of Whitleblowers ignored by the left and media, calling in Dominion, what an opportunity for Trump to prove Biden is a fraud!
Imagine the critical element of the president’s defense would be the exposure of all the evidence of fraud, of which there is a lot. The media so far kept from wide circulation and discussion of voter fraud, now it will be front and center and twitter will be unable to censor that. What a dream platform for Team Giuliani.
Will Pelsoi and the Democrats fall into the trap and actually move forward on Impeachment? Let’s hope they do!
