The following article, Trump’s Silence on Jan 6th Could Make Him Culpable, Says Judge, was first published on Flag And Cross.
It continues to appear as though Donald Trump is high on the list of liberal boogeymen in 2022, and concerted efforts to see him politically-hobbled are all bound by the backwards sense of justice that the left maintains toward him. He is guilty of at least something; Now all the Democrats needs to do is prove it.
