OK, let me get this straight: Trump and his surrogates have been crying election fraud for how long now, all of which has been rejected by the courts, but still prompting 19 state legislatures to pass voter suppression laws which are obviously geared to restrict Black voters from voting, and it turns out one of his closest aides and allies Mark Meadows has now been banished from North Carolina’s voters registration roles because in the 2020 election he voted not only in North Carolina but in Virginia. So the foxes in the henhouse are not Democrats who Trump has branded as election thieves but Trump Republicans like Mark Meadows who was actually caught rigging the election by voting twice in two different states. Fake news, Mr. Trump? A witch hunt? Stolen election?
No, it’s just you hiding what you have already done: Steal or try to steal elections! So finally the real foxes have been snared and captured. Can we now, Mr. Garland, mount a serious prosecution against these charlatans, these snake oil salesmen and women? No need to follow the complicated money: Just follow the voter registration roles of Republicans in battleground states. Just follow the words of Trump and other traitors at the Elipse before the insurrection. Just follow the Top Secret documents Trump stole from the White House and carted down to Mar a Lago to do what with? Share with Putin? Just follow any of Trump’s real estate dealings and manipulations to build your case. It’s all there, in plain sight which all of us have seen, all cleverly covered up, with guilt slyly deflected onto others, with lies finely honed and sharpened to escape detection.
How much more time do we need to prosecute this man and his cronies before he runs again and finishes his attempted coup to send democracy to its grave? The man is a menace to our society and to the world as a whole. We can stop him if, and only if, we have the will to do so. This former president is not above the law. The law in our country applies equally to everyone, without exception. Let me know if I’m wrong.
The will to prosecute Trump is not in the hands of you and I. That will must start from the top, namely Joe Biden, extending to Merrick Garland, and filtering down to more local attorneys general and district attorneys. Trump knows this and is trying to run down the clock until, he hopes, when his cult Republicans take back the House. So time is running out in that regard.
One thing you and I can do is write letters, call, or email the President and the head of the DOJ urging them to make the prosecution of Donald Trump a priority and, yes, build a strong case so as to nail this SOB to the political, and perhaps criminal, wall!
