"By every objective measure, and according to the judgment of numerous
former federal prosecutors, and now a sitting federal judge, former
President Donald Trump committed crimes when he – unlike any U.S.
president before him – refused to accept the results of a free and fair
election and attempted to overturn it. Many regular citizens who acted
on Trump’s false claims and exhortations have been convicted of the same
charge that Trump would likely face if indicted. And far from being
weak, the evidence that Trump knew he could not obstruct an official
proceeding to maintain himself in office is, as a legal matter,
overwhelming and of a kind used to convict ordinary and high-profile
Americans every day. Attorney General Garland has repeatedly said that
the DOJ will seek accountability for anyone, at any level,
who is legally responsible for the insurrection that culminated on Jan.
6, and that the Department’s charging decisions would be governed by
the facts and the law, not politics. For all these reasons, we have
cause to expect that the DOJ’s investigation will result in charges
against Trump if the admissible evidence matches what we have seen in
the public record. And when and if that happens, justice has far more
than a fighting chance to prevail." -- Kristy Parker in Just Security, concluding an article on the case for optimism that the Malignant Loser will, indeed, face justice for his role in the January 6 insurrection. It makes us more optimistic, so good read.
