When investigators look into a series of crimes, they usually look to climb a ladder. They can’t get to the people at the top right away in most cases. Instead, they put away the underlings on their way to the main target.
And Donald Trump had an awful lot of underlings, none of them very smart. His legal team, which challenged the election, was made up of people like Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and Sydney Powell as well as a group of fake electors. And according to David Laufman, these nincompoops could soon be facing the consequences of their actions.
The CNN legal analyst explained, “It is really good probative evidence of the state of mind of the people who inhabited this conspiracy. They knew that this was a big lie. They knew this was a fraudulent scheme that they were seeking to perpetrate against the United States government. And so it is consistent with evidence the government would want to use in support of a potential charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States by fomenting false electors to sabotage the certification of the election results.”
Laufman continued his take, “This is like the Four Seasons Landscaping gang. They’re nincompoops, but they’re malevolent nincompoops.”
