When you do a lot of reading and writing, as I do, you have a lot of random thoughts and quotes that strike you. Today I’d like to share a few of mine with you.
Timeline: Saturday morning August 19, 2023
The biggest political story of the week just passed was one we knew was coming; we just didn’t know the exact timing of it. Yes, I’m speaking of the indictments in Fulton County, Georgia. Much has been reported – some of it even accurate – over the past few days. Many repercussions have already been felt, and many more are to be expected. (Hence the timeline.) Over the next few minutes, I’d like to share some of my thoughts.
I really don’t want to write about Donald Trump, but I again I feel I must. On Thursday of last week, he was the 1076th person to be arraigning in DC Federal Court on charges related to January 6th. That was the biggest American political event of the week just passed and I’d like to comment on it below.
I feel the need to say a bit about many things; so here we go.
I chose today for this article because I felt there was a good chance that the legal maneuverings in Miami might start in earnest today. Americans like to view political and legal events in terms of sports metaphors. As such, this is a matchup between Donald Trump and Jack Smith. There is very good reason to believe that it is a series as opposed to a one-and-done.
