    Constant cries, moans, bitching, kvetching, tantrum after tantrum, after…
    ”Election interference?”
    Hell, yes it is. Actually “there is,” there was and has been for a looooooooooonnnggg time. Interference by Trump, by MAGA, by most Republican pols, by the 1/6 traitors who attempted a coup. And long after: not just counts but recount after recount, after… just like they accused Gore of but the count was never completed: a big dif. And he behaved once decided by the Court, Behaved like someone who respects our representative form of governance. Not so much…hell, hell: NOT AT ALL Mister “Dictator From Day 1.”
    Even before 2016 Trump started claiming the election would be rigged. Republicans in different states have been eliminating poll stations, eliminating voters with purging programs that selectively purge groups that tend not to vote Republican, DeJoy sabotaging the post office, mail in voting via redesign of the boxes, armed voter challengers intimidating politically incorrect voters…
    As I so often type, “And that’s the short list.”
    Until the parties flipped, going back to the slave owner infested South it was southern Democrats doing this crap. However, as we entered into the 1900’s the parties flipped. Not exactly, but flipped. The tactics are similar, though not exactly the same, especially since the advent computers and computer modeling. No need for some messy KKK violence, now they send armed “poll watchers,” there to intimidate and scare away any potential Dem party voters, often of the wrong color. “Racism?” Weeeelllll… the intent is more to just keep chopping away at potential politically incorrect voters. The result? Yes, racist. But I’m sure if they could block all non-Trump/Republican voters they would. Machines was now old version of that, intimidating voters at the polls, the newer one adding on the still active old ones: ID’s made hard to get for certain voters and cost money (POLL TAX), purging politically incorrect voters… there’s a LOOONNNGGGG list that I could type to follow.
    Republicans, most, are DEEP into election interference. Why it’s almost as if they believe only white, right wing, mostly male voters should be able to vote.
    About the trials: interference since Trump left office by Trump and his accolades was the real interference. Yeah, Garland could have been faster on the draw, but I do respect that he appointed an investigator and then prosecuting bulldog rather than sully his own hands.
    Trump has had every element of due process, despite his tantrums, trying to spoil the jury, trying to run his own court via Truth(less) Social...
    Any other defendant would have been in jail long before this for how he behaves. Hell, just for what he has been accused of.
    And who chanted “lock her up” without a mention of due process?
    And, as it is all the often, the accuser and the accusers accuse to distract from doing what they accuse others of.
    Election interference?
    Hell, YES!!!
