YouTube changes misinformation policy to allow videos falsely claiming fraud in the 2020 US election

 

"The company said it ‘carefully deliberated’ the reversal without explaining further."

The Washington Post - Opinion  - Trump’s smoking gun recording gives Jack Smith all he needs

 

04 June 2023

 


When CNN reported on Wednesday night that special counsel Jack Smith has a recording of former president Donald Trump boasting at his Bedminster, N.J., club in 2021 that he had a highly classified multipage document relating to war plans against Iran, months of punditry that Trump would never be indicted went out the window. ... 

 

This evidence effectively destroys whatever defense Trump was trying to concoct (he didn’t know there were classified documents, he declassified them, he thought they were not classified). ...

 

The last time such a damning piece of evidence (a “smoking gun”) came to light, Richard M. Nixon’s presidency was effectively over. (He left office less than a week later.)

 

News reports now indicate the federal grand jury hearing the documents case will meet this week. 

 

An indictment, if there is one, could come within days.

 



Hopefully, Smith will have no choice but to recommend indictment, and Attorney General Garland will have no choice but to follow the recommendation.  πŸ˜

 

EDIT:  The Washington Post - Trump lawyers ask Justice Dept. not to charge Trump in classified docs case

 

05 June 2023

 


Attorneys for Donald Trump went to the Justice Department on Monday morning to make their case that the government should not charge the former president in connection with his possession of classified documents after leaving office ...

 

They met with Justice Department personnel including special counsel Jack Smith and a senior career official ...

 

 

Worried, much?  😏

Mike Pence tears into Donald Trump at 2024 campaign launch - BBC News

 

 

The Republican accused Mr Trump of being unfaithful to the US constitution and of abandoning conservative values.

 

The former Indiana governor and congressman formally commenced his White House campaign on Wednesday.

 

The move pits him against his two-time running mate, who he served under in the White House from 2017-21.

 

At a speech in Ankeny, Iowa, Mr Pence argued that Mr Trump had encouraged the mob that attacked the US Capitol on 6 January 2021, and had incorrectly asserted that Mr Pence had the power to overturn the election result.

 

"But the American people deserve to know that on that day, President Trump also demanded that I choose between him and the constitution," he said.

 

"Now, voters will be faced with the same choice: I chose the constitution and I always will."

 

He added that Mr Trump's actions on 6 January should disqualify him from returning to power.

The mouse finally roars!

 

 

Brave, brave Sir Mike! Only three years after Trump threw an insurrection and with Trump about to be buried in criminal charges, brave Sir Mike finally squeeks up!

 

 

Says more about his character than anything else possibly could.

That changes the game if Pence and DeSantis are on the attack. I rate Pence with a good chance if he's going to take it to DeSantis. This changes the game for Christie too. For a while there it appeared Christie would be the only anti-Trump contender. Christie now has the chance to articulate some policy in between scandal questions. Seems like Haley is running for vice but you never know.

I don't. The role of Pence was to be the perfect milquetoast VP, no chance of ever becoming a threat to Trump, or even being visible next to Trump. He played the role perfectly (and I'm sure Mother approved), but beyond that he's not good for much.

Well we'll see. He's good at looking presidential. If he can hold that against Trump sufficiently while the rest descend into the necessary bunfight for recognition he might come out looking like the only viable candidate.

The NY Times - Supreme Court to Decide ‘Trump Too Small’ Trademark Dispute

 

05 June 2023

 


The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to decide whether a California lawyer may trademark the phrase “Trump too small,” a reference to a taunt from Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, during the 2016 presidential campaign. 

 

Mr. Rubio said Donald J. Trump had “small hands,” adding: “And you know what they say about guys with small hands.”

 

The lawyer, Steve Elster, said in his trademark application that he wanted to convey the message that “some features of President Trump and his policies are diminutive.” 

 

He sought to use the phrase on the front of T-shirts with a list of Mr. Trump’s positions on the back. For instance: “Small on civil rights.”

The NY Times - Prosecutors Tell Trump’s Legal Team He Is a Target of Investigation

 

breaking!

 


Federal prosecutors have informed the legal team for former President Donald J. Trump that he is a target of their investigation into his handling of classified documents after he left office ...

 

The notification to Mr. Trump’s team by prosecutors from the office of the special counsel, Jack Smith, was the clearest signal yet that the former president is likely to face charges in the investigation.

 

[This suggests] that prosecutors working for Mr. Smith had largely completed their investigation and were moving toward bringing an indictment.

 

 

and

 

The Washington Post - Trump special counsel shifts focus of possible indictment to S. Florida

 


Justice Department prosecutors are planning to bring a significant portion of any charges stemming from the possible mishandling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, the home of former president Donald Trump, at a nearby federal court in South Florida ...

 

The legal rationale for such a move is that the bulk of the conduct at issue in the investigation occurred in the southern district of Florida, in and around Trump’s Palm Beach residence and private club, even if much of the investigation - led by special counsel Jack Smith - has been handled by a grand jury in D.C. ...
