"The simpler your case is, with fewer charges and fewer defendants, the faster it can move. The federal prosecution looks like..."

"... it’s an attempt to do the sprint. As for [the Fulton County, Georgia, case], it is hokey to say it’s a marathon, but basically it’s more like an epic with a giant cast of characters. The other one’s Raymond Carver, and this is Dickens... A RICO charge is the kind of charge you bring when you have a lot of different people connected in different ways, but who form a loose organization, or sometimes a very tight hierarchical one—say, a Mob family—who are all working toward a common goal. ...

The interviewer, Isaac Chotiner, asks the main question I am asking: "Is there some concern that you’re criminalizing normal political activity?"

Morrison answers;

I would think so, yes. I suppose the defense of this, really, is whether all these actions were taken with the intent to corruptly overturn the results of the Georgia election and retain power, or just the regular “We’re just double checking.” Because candidates do have the right to request recounts and to make sure that things are normal and to raise questions and to try motions in court and all this kind of stuff. I’m really torn because it seems to me, if the allegations are true, that this goes far beyond anything that the United States has seen in terms of election interference from the highest positions. It makes sense to prosecute it. But I guess the fear would be that now we’re entering a period where every time somebody loses an election and makes any kind of complaint about it they’re going to get charged with racketeering. That would, obviously, be a problem.

FWIW, I have read Bleak House, several times. As Ann Althouse says, the plot is how a protracted multi-generation legal case can consume the contested assets. It is also about how an obsession can destroy the obsessed person(s). Trump-Haters would do well to consider these lessons, but few, if any, will.

If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

Banna republic politics at it’s worst  :thatsright: :argh:

Weaponizing the judicial system to eliminate your competitors. :argh:
Life is tough and it’s even tougher when you’re stupid

Basking in the glow of my white Privilege, while I water the Begonias with liberal tears!

I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens

We need a Bull Shit tax to make the Democrats go broke!

The Georgia indictments go beyond that. Lawyers have been indicted for acting, legally, in representation of their client, Trump. That is going full-Stalin-Hitler.

What's happening is that all-4 cases against Trump are crumbling. 

The 'government' is going to have to do a whole lotta self-righteous oratin' to make anything stick.  Who's going to withdraw from the prosecution-teams first and how fast will the mass exodus be?
