Bingo...the truth will have a day in court. This is what the stolen election advocates wanted, right? The opportunity to make the case in court. Well here is their chance...if they can bring the receipts and show the election was stolen there is no way Trump is convicted of a conspiracy.

Very tired of Trump dominating the news cycle which are all distractions that continue to give the Biden administration a pass on everything. If Trump had decided not to run in 2024 election then would we be seeing any of these indictments besides the Florida one?

If only the POTUS could get in as much trouble for lying...about nearly everything.

Erick, I usually love your perspective but the tone and tenor of this piece is all wet. Poor, poor Trump, even in Fulton County a jury of 12 should allow him to hide behind the fig leaf of "believing" lawyers. Trump has run this kind of scam his entire life - read Maggie Haberman's book if you're not acquainted with his M.O. He's done this ever since he hooked up with Roy Cohn when he was young. That's how he got the bankruptcy court [and the big banks who skipped due diligence] to give him a $450,000 a month personal expenses allowance while cabinet makers and carpet layers [some of whom were third generation businesses] were stiffed and died. Did lawyers make him say 3 million illegal aliens cost him the popular vote count in 2016? Did shoddy lawyers make him send quislings out to say his inaugural crowds were bigger than Obama's? The man has the integrity and backbone of a tapeworm, and I wish you would tell your audience that.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I worked the polls in Charlotte. Apparently the rules differ from state to state. Are they or not? I relocated to GA I was going to volunteer but because of the heated atmosphere here I decided not to get involved. I may change my mind.

I digress, but a story is told of a man who went to his doctor claiming he was dead. No matter the diagnostics, no matter the facts, the doctor could not convince the man he was alive. The doctor asked him if live people bleed, which the man readily agreed. Quickly the doctor stabbed the man in the arm with a needle and blood poured out. The man exclaimed, "Oh my gosh--dead people bleed too!" Erick, these are the people to whom you often speak. ANOTHER reason I pray for you! Great synopsis!

I understand your stance on the election not being stolen, but I still and will always have a hard time believing Biden could sit in his basement and get more votes than any presidential candidate in history.

By the way, has any of you ever heard Fani Willis take to the mic and speak so forcefully and passionately about an indictment against a person suspected of gunning down and killing a youth in Atlanta?

Very interesting. Now let's see how all of this influences the election polling, and what influence it has on national support for Trump. The Republican Establishment must be kicking itself for allowing this all to happen ...

“ Then there was the access of voting machines and ballots in South Georgia. …”

This fact alone is reason enough to question allot. After they said that the machines were not connected to the internet and couldn’t be hacked. But they were. If they could others could as well.

Lastly trump can say what he wants. That’s not illegal to question elections. Otherwise indict all the dems who screamed in 2016.

Thank you for breaking this down and dispelling the myths.

Ironically, when my teenage son first heard the call between Trump and Raffensperger, my son commented that Trump sounded like he was "in the mafia." And now Trump's basically being charged with mafia-like behavior. You can't make this stuff up.

While I no longer support Trump, these indictments are hurting the country. My wish is that the DOJ, Congress, and the DAs would come together to agree to not charge Trump or Biden, in return for neither of them running for office ever again. Let's clear the way for younger candidates who can debate the real issues our country is facing. Otherwise, we're running the risk of Kamala Harris sitting in the Oval Office, and no one wants that.

Can we get Fani Willis to draw up an indictment for the Biden crime family

Expand full comment

As usual an indictment comes a day or two after the news cycle gets filled (er, at least lightly discussed) with possible Biden family crimes. Then, we all turn to the Trump saga. It’s like when my dog is focused on another dog that he doesn’t particularly like. All I have to do is say “there’s the Kitty (he apparently knows this word and what I am talking about) and immediately changes course to find the cat.

I live in Fulton County and have served on 4 juries while being called 6 times (twice within a 12 month period on two occasions). I hope this won’t be one of them.

Reread your last paragraph but replace the subject of election fraud with COVID, climate change, gender identity, or any other hot topic du jour. The resultant backlash of which you speak perfectly describes the woke warrior's playbook. How ironic that those so staunchly defending the president are emulating their avowed enemies.

ALL news people are talking about Trump and taking the attention OFF of the Bidens. It is really working well for them to keep charging Trump. Demo's are not as dumb as I thought.

Blessings to you Erick for all that you do to keep us informed and your family well.
