Former prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said: “The writing is on the wall,” in the RICO case in Georgia. Kirschner concluded that the plea deal with bail bondsman Scott Hall set everything in motion when he pled to unauthorized breach of the Coffee County voting machines, which led to Sidney Powell’s plea. In fact, Kirschner believes that all the rest of the “low level” defendants (the fake electors) will plead, and eventually, all remaining defendants (except Trump) will plead. He called what Fani Willis is doing “strategic” by picking off the low-level fruit. The way things are unfolding, Kirschner said: “it is a vindication of the tactical decisions that Fani Willis not only is making in who she’s trying to flip but in her tactical decision to bring a massive, sprawling 19-defendant RICO conspiracy case.” Kirschner said that it proves that “Fani Willis had it right the whole time.” She’s not the only one who has had it right.
Special Counsel Jack Smith caught the prize fish when news broke late Tuesday that Mark Meadows has been given immunity to testify in the D.C. election interference case. It appears that Meadows refuted his own writings and decided to be truthful. Facing jail can do that to a person. Meadows claims he didn’t believe the election was stolen and further said that Trump “was being dishonest” when he claimed victory at the closing of the polls in 2020. Donald Trump is even more out of sorts than normal, writing on his failed social media site that he doesn’t believe Meadows would make a deal, and of course, denying that Meadows ever told him that claims of widespread fraud were unfounded. Trump’s biggest problem is his constant lying. Who’s a jury going to believe? Meadows, who they don’t know a whole lot about, or the man who consistently lies about any and everything? That’s a no-brainer.
According to CNN, investigators also asked Meadows about Trump’s reaction on January 6, 2021, and Meadows corroborated earlier accounts that Trump hesitated to call off his supporters. He quoted what Trump said to Kevin McCarthy: “I guess these people are more upset than you are.” That is not a normal reaction to the U.S. Capitol being vandalized and police officers being injured, but when you’ve willingly caused the violence, what’s to worry about? For him, it just meant they loved him. He gave not one thought to who was being hurt and who could have been hurt. It’s now time for Trump to “pay the piper.” He likely never suspected that Mark Meadows of all people would undermine his non-existent defense, but the sad thing is that he remains the Republican frontrunner.
Donald Trump has spent his entire life getting away with situations that he caused himself. For once in his life, he is up against people and issues that he cannot avoid. The seriousness of the charges against Trump and his cohorts isn’t lost on the cohorts. Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, and Kenneth Chesebro have all avoided jail by pleading. Now, Mark Meadows is avoiding jail by testifying against Trump. The clock is winding down for Donald Trump.
