Many thanks to my dear reader and frequent commenter Spike for being the grist of this article. I had it floating around nebulously in my head, but with his comment in my article about Jeffrey Clark, it crystalized in my head in a heartbeat. Thanks dude! In my Jeffrey Clark article I noted that Clark wasn’t just claiming that He vas chust followink orders!, he went the extra step in court claiming that he was entitled to federal protection because Trump personally told him to do it.
If this sounds familiar, it’s because former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows argued almost the exact same thing in his own filing to the federal court to move to federal court. Meadow just drew a fine line. He argued to the court simply that when he did what he did, he did it as a federal officer conducting his duty without claiming that Traitor Tot has personally ordered him to do any of it. Some say tom-A-to, and some say tom-ah-to.
And you can look for this to be repeated ad nauseum as more and more bricks in the Trump dam in Fulton County crack and wash away. This wasn’t supposed to happen. Trump was invincible. All they had to do was to toe the line, and he’d cover their ass. And now they’re looking at public humiliation, possible disbarment, and potential time in the Georgia state prison. They’re going to crack. And in so doing, they’re going to make Fani Willis’s job a dream.
Here’s what Spike so well pointed out. In his filing before the federal district court, Jeffrey Clark never once denied that he engaged in criminal behavior. Instead he tried to cloak it in a patina of federal authority, and laid it all at Trump’s feet for directly authorizing it.
And the same thing goes for Mark Meadows. He too never denied that he engaged in the purported criminal activity, just that he was excused for it due to the fact that he was just doing his job.
Small problem here. United States soldiers and officers can be prosecuted and court martialed for blindly following illegal or immoral orders. The US government created an entire process for whistleblowers to be able to report suspected abuses to superiors and even congress without fear of reprisal. There is a procedure to follow, and safeguards, and that I vas chust followink orders! bullsh*t just won’t work anymore.
But that’s what these miserable miscreants have to work with. Fulton County DA Fani Willis took two and a half years to conduct this investigation, and she dotted every “i” and crossed every “t”. There is no way for them to successfully claim that they didn’t do it, so they have to come up with some other alternative excuse for their criminal behavior. And in reaching for that alternate excuse, they never deny that they did it.
Defendant Harrison Floyd is a poster child. He originally contacted Fulton County election worker Ruby Freeman offering to help her by referring her to Kanye’s former lowlife publicist to threaten her with prison time if she didn’t confess to committing election fraud. He wants his case severed from anybody else’s except Kanye’s former publicist cuz he never actually took part in any actual election fraud, lying to an innocent woman, threatening her with federal prison if she doesn’t confess to election fraud is just some kind of a misdemeanor or something. But notice that he never actually denies that he did the dirty deed.
Stupid is as stupid does. There’s a reason why they call them master criminals. And that’s because they literally spend months excruciatingly going over every detail, ensuring that the heist goes off as planned. These ass clowns, along with their Glorious Bleater did this on the fly. and now they’re about to pay the price. But not without going down in flames while they try to wriggle out of it. Morons.
