They were both weaponized lawfare. Hopefully both make it to the Supreme Court and get overturned.

Hunter Biden's son matters less. But it does seem as if he's got a very raw deal because he's Joe's son. But if you're dad isn't someone to abuse the presidential power of pardon, sometimes you get a raw deal just by being his son.

Trump committed many crimes to interfere with elections. I hope that these convictions stand. The concern is that if he wins the presidency he will now be in a position to halt the other federal investigations against him about the espionage and his attempts to overturn the election with the January 6 Capitol attack and the various fake electors schemes.

He will try to stop the state proceedings against him for the fake elector's scheme in Georgia, and will try to move against the Arizona, Nevada, Michigan and Wisconsin investigations.

Exactly! Only Biden actually committed crimes.

Only Biden actually committed crimes.

Election interference is a crime. In this case the consequences are quite serious. We had to endure 4 years of a Trump presidency damaging geopolitical relations, and resulting in the capture and death of our Human Intelligence sources.

Bullshit. That Russian collusion thing was all smoke and mirrors and the Mueller Report proved it. These trials, conveniently all hitting just before the election, is truly election interference. To tell people that if they vote for the other candidate, they're a threat to democracy is election interference. Hiding that you paid some hush money to a hooker is practically presidential in the case of Democrats.

Bullshit. That Russian collusion thing was all smoke and mirrors and the Mueller Report proved it.

I see you haven't read the Mueller Report.

Here's some of the key findings. Including:

  • Russian interference in the 2016 election was “sweeping and systemic.”

  • Major attack avenues included a social media “information warfare” campaign that “favored” candidate Trump and the hacking of Clinton campaign-related databases and release of stolen materials through Russian-created entities and Wikileaks.

  • In 2015 and 2016, Michael Cohen pursued a hotel/residence project in Moscow on behalf of Trump while he was campaigning for President. Then-candidate Trump personally signed a letter of intent.

  • Senior members of the Trump campaign, including Paul Manafort, Donald Trump, Jr., and Jared Kushner took a June 9, 2016, meeting with Russian nationals at Trump Tower, New York, after outreach from an intermediary informed Trump, Jr., that the Russians had derogatory information on Clinton that was “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

  • Beginning in June 2016, a Trump associate “forecast to senior [Trump] Campaign officials that WikiLeaks would release information damaging to candidate Clinton.” A section of the Report that remains heavily redacted suggests that Roger Stone was this associate and that he had significant contacts with the campaign about Wikileaks.

  • The Report described multiple occasions where Trump associates lied to investigators about Trump associate contacts with Russia. Trump associates George Papadopoulos, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, and Michael Cohen all admitted that they made false statements to federal investigators or to Congress about their contacts. In addition, Roger Stone faces trial this fall for obstruction of justice, five counts of making false statements, and one count of witness tampering.

  • The Report contains no evidence that any Trump campaign official reported their contacts with Russia or WikiLeaks to U.S. law enforcement authorities during the campaign or presidential transition, despite public reports on Russian hacking starting in June 2016 and candidate Trump’s August 2016 intelligence briefing warning him that Russia was seeking to interfere in the election.

  • The Report raised questions about why Trump associates and then-candidate Trump repeatedly asserted Trump had no connections to Russia.

These trials, conveniently all hitting just before the election, is truly election interference.

Trumps delaying tactics are the only reason that they're not finished with.

To tell people that if they vote for the other candidate, they're a threat to democracy is election interference.

If it's true, it should be said.

Hiding that you paid some hush money to a hooker is practically presidential in the case of Democrats.

What are you basing that on?
