Really good podcast explaining the legal details of Trump's various indictments from the perspective of two experienced federal prosecutors. The coverage is fair and the conversational style very effective in highlighting the extraordinary accusations against the former President. Whatever your views on Trump's presidency it is clear that the US population deserves to know the outcome from these pending trials before choosing their next President in 2024.

It's fascinating to see the ongoing discussions about the potential prosecution of Donald Trump. On one hand, there's the argument that no one should be above the law, regardless of their position or status. If there's evidence of wrongdoing, then a prosecution should proceed just as it would for any other individual. https://gb.kompass.com/c/printing-mart/gb99154324/ On the other hand, some people are concerned about the precedent it might set. Prosecuting a former president could be seen as a political move rather than a pursuit of justice, which might further divide the country along party lines. Additionally, there's the question of whether pursuing a prosecution would distract from other pressing issues that need attention. https://www.a-zbusinessfinder.com/business-directory/Printing-Mart-Bristol-London-E-United-Kingdom/33879335/

So, when Trump goes to prison, how will that work with his Secret Service detail? If he is proven guilty in a court of law, he should be treated as any other prisoner. If security is the key factor, maybe total solitary confinement during his stay is the answer. Ijs....

Lying about Pences agreeance was to maintain the crowds desire to show up. The whole show was obvious, and the mob wasn't going to do the dirty work, but they would if they showed up, and were disappointed. He manipulated the mob and they said as much in their court appearances.

"Let me see that, I want to show you an example." Trump's first words suggest someone else in the room was already examining the classified document before handing it to Trump at his request. This also debunks his claim that he was holding harmless documents... he wanted to visually confirm what he was saying.
