“Stacks of physical evidence. Weeks of testimony from corroborating witnesses. Twelve ordinary citizens on a jury listened carefully to the prosecution and defense present their cases. And they came to one unanimous verdict: former President Donald Trump was guilty of 34 felonies. In almost any other time, Republicans would have been reading the GOP Party bylaws at breakneck speeds, desperate to find the fastest way to ditch a convicted felon from the ticket. These are not normal times. Instead, Republicans have doubled down on the former president’s and now-convicted felon’s mistruths, distortions, and outright lies about the case. Let us consider them. Trump’s first and most brazen lie is that he is innocent.” (06/05/24)
