Trump’s ‘Team Kraken’ Lands in Hot Water
L. Lin Wood played a starring role in the failed legal effort to alter the results of the 2020 election on behalf of former President Donald Trump. But Mr. Wood, a lawyer, now wants everyone to know that he had no real involvement in the suit to decertify the vote in Michigan, despite his name appearing on it.

“I do not specifically recall being asked about the Michigan complaint,” he said on Monday, “but I had generally indicated to Sidney Powell that if she needed a quote-unquote trial lawyer, I would certainly be willing or available to help her.” Ms. Powell, you may recall, is the legal eagle who vowed to “release the Kraken” on supposed 2020 election fraudsters, thus earning the pro-Trump legal crusade its mythic nickname.

Mr. Wood was just trying to support his Kraken co-counsel.

Mr. Wood’s, um, clarifications were made to a federal judge during a hearing on whether he, Ms. Powell and several other lawyers should be sanctioned over the Michigan case. The city of Detroit, among other entities, has accused the pro-Trump legal team of abusing the court system by pursuing a frivolous, error-riddled case. The city wants the offending lawyers punished financially and referred for possible disbarment.

Monday’s virtual proceedings did not bode well for Team Kraken. U.S. District Court Judge Linda Parker expressed skepticism bordering on dismay about some of the evidence and experts from the original case. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen an affidavit that has made so many leaps,” she marveled at one point. “How could any of you as officers of the court present this affidavit?”

Generally speaking, it’s not a good sign when a judge is characterizing one’s evidence in terms such as “fantastical,” “speculative,” “bad faith,” “obviously questionable” and “layers of hearsay.” Judge Parker brushed back Ms. Powell’s assertion that the complaint’s 960 pages of affidavits proved “due diligence,” countering, “Volume, certainly for this court, doesn’t equate with legitimacy or veracity.” (...)

More generally, the defendants maintain that the entire hearing is outrageous and baseless and — surprise! — that they are being unjustly persecuted. “I have practiced law for 43 years and have never witnessed a proceeding like this,” Ms. Powell said.

America Only Punishes a Certain Kind of Rebel
(...) The United States has never struggled to punish those radicals who stood against hierarchy and domination. Whether you were a labor radical, Black revolutionary or left-wing militant, to attempt to upset existing class and social relations — or, at times, to even associate with people who held those ideas — was to court state repression. The two Red Scares of the 20th century are evidence enough of this fact.

When a perceived internal enemy is a threat to the established hierarchy, the state springs into action. But when the challenge is in defense of those hierarchies, the incentive often runs in the other direction, either out of ideological affinity or the potential for political gain or both.

Donald Trump leads a mass movement in defense of traditional hierarchies. His most fervent supporters tried to overturn American democracy in his name. Perhaps, if he and his followers were more fringe figures, there would be greater appetite among political elites for holding him accountable.

But because Trump and his movement are essentially mainstream — because his political power weighs on the fortunes of both parties — he is insulated from the consequences of his actions. His most fervent followers may find themselves facing prosecution and jail time for what they did on Jan. 6, but he stands unchastened and unrestrained.

It almost does not matter if Trump runs for president again. The damage has been done. Not just in terms of what is possible — an attack on the Capitol building — but in terms of what is remembered. If, as Trump suggests, the insurrectionists are heroes and martyrs, then the insurrection itself is already fast becoming something of a “Lost Cause.” And if experience tells us anything, it’s that we should not underestimate the power and potency of that particular narrative.

Donald Trump Calls Jan. 6 Capitol Insurrectionists 'Great People'

I guess if you are going to continue to lie about the election it makes sense to continue to lie about your insurrection. 

The guy is a walking piece of garbage and a National embarrassment. Sewage flows freely from his brain/mouth.

‘A Lovefest’: Trump Peddles More Jan. 6 Revisionist History While Hinting 2024 Run

“There was such love at that rally, you had over a million people, they were there for one reason, the rigged election, they felt the election was rigged,” Trump said, while ignoring the widespread violence that occurred on Jan. 6 as a result of his fruitless efforts to overturn the election results. “That’s why they were there and they were peaceful people, these were great people, the crowd was unbelievable and I mentioned the word love, the love in the air I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Trump then continued his crusade of martyrizing Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran who was fatally shot as she tried to climb through a broken window during the insurrection. Since the Capitol insurrection over six months ago, Babbitt’s death has been used as an example of federal tyranny that has been embraced by Trump and his allies, with the former president egging on his supporters’ demands to identify the officer who fatally shot Babbitt.

“Who is the person that shot an innocent, wonderful, incredible woman, a military woman, right in the head?” Trump said. “There is no repercussion — that were on the other side, it would be the biggest story in this country. Who shot Ashli Babbitt? People want to know and why.”

A lovefest...

Agreed.  Individuals from the greater family have shown independence in both thought and action, so here's hoping.

Yeah......   not just children but other family members should be No Go Zones for modern politicians.   So many of today's warriors have no honour.

God help Barron.  6' 7" is heading into unusually tall territory.  That means that 99.9% of people he meets for the first time, will immediately glom on to his height.

At that height, he is unlikely to be a bully, a thug or gratuitously mean.   He may not fit in with the rest of the family.

This Marginal Revolution blog posted review attempts to offer a balanced view of the US response to the pandemic.  h/t John Cochrane, The Grumpy Economist.  It is well worthwhile but my expectations of the USA are inevitably high and I still cannot help wondering if the Trump response to the pandemic resulted in close to 200,000 avoidable American deaths.  There is no doubt that the political leadership response in many other countries was also tragically inadequate, in many cases worse.  -w

Book Review: Andy Slavitt’s Preventable

by Alex Tabarrok July 7, 2021 at 7:25 am

    Like Michael Lewis’s The Premonition which I reviewed earlier, Andy Slavitt’s Preventable is a story of heroes, only all the heroes are named Andy Slavitt. It begins, as all such stories do, with an urgent call from the White House…the President needs you now! When not reminding us (e.g. xv, 14, 105, 112, 133, 242, 249) of how he did “nearly the impossible” and saved Obamacare he tells us how grateful other people were for his wise counsel, e.g. “Jared Kushner’s name again flashed on my phone. I picked up, and he was polite and appreciative of my past help.” (p.113), “John Doer was right to challenge me to make my concerns known publicly. Hundreds of thousands of people were following my tweets…” (p. 55)

    Slavitt deserves praise for his work during the pandemic so I shouldn’t be so churlish but Preventable is shallow and politicized and it rubbed me the wrong way. Instead of an “inside account” we get little more than a day-by-day account familiar to anyone who lived through the last year and half. Slavitt rarely departs from the standard narrative.
