Act22: On or about the 3rd day of December2020, DONALD JOHN TRUMP caused to be tweeted from the Twitter account @RealDonaldTrump, “Georgia hearings now on @OANN. Amazing!” This was an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy”So Trump's crime was, in part, posting a public tweet to watch tv news!
This is crazy stuff. There was no conspiracy. There were no secret deals to do anything illegal. Everything Trump did was in the open, public, and in pursuit of lawful remedies.
The omnibus spending bill includes a section that would reform the Electoral Count Act, a 1887 law that governs the counting of Electoral College votes in Congress.So all the Democrats agreed that the Electoral Count Act had a loophole. So how can it be illegal for Trump to have tried to exploit that loophole?
For years, legal scholars have worried the law was poorly written and in need of clarification, and former President Donald Trump and his allies targeted the law's ambiguities in their attempts to overturn the 2020 election.
