Trump's law: is the Earth more spherical than round… like a pillowcase full of doorknobs

4 min read

As Trump refuses to appear before the Senate impeachment trial, there’s more lawfare with defamation suits resulting from 2020 election claims:

March for Our Lives co-founder David Hogg tweeted on Thursday that he and software developer William LeGate are launching a pillow company to compete against MyPillow, which is led by Trump supporter CEO Mike Lindell.

Driving the news: Lindell is one of former President Trump’s most adamant defenders and has repeatedly shared unsubstantiated conspiracy theories about the election since President Biden took office.

[…]

Details… Hogg wrote that he and LeGate hope to “sell $1 million of product within our first year” and to launch in about six months.

  • “[W]e would like to do it sooner but we have strict guidelines on sustainability and [U.S.] based Union producers,” Hogg added.
  • “Mike isn’t going to know what hit him—this pillow fight is just getting started.”

Trump defense lawyer says the former President will NOT testify at Impeachment trial.

Attorney: “It’s a publicity stunt in order to make up for the weakness of the House managers’ case.”

There’s no escaping what really happened. Now, in one sense, Republicans are surely relieved Trump isn’t testifying, because he would no doubt reiterate that the election outcome was fraudulent, demonstrating again that he absolutely did want to overturn it, making Republicans look even more corrupt and depraved for acquitting him.

The central strategic goal for Republicans at Donald Trump’s impeachment trial is no mystery. Above all, they must avoid taking a stand on what the former president is actually accused of doing: inciting a mob assault on the Capitol and on lawmakers themselves, for the express purpose of violently disrupting the peaceful conclusion of an election he lost.

Intriguingly, this task may have been badly complicated by none other than Trump’s own lawyers.

This may explain why Rep. Jamie B. Raskin (D-Md.), the head of the team of impeachment managershas now sent a letter to Trump, asking him to testify in his defense at his Senate trial.

A spokesperson for Trump just confirmed that Trump will not testify, which is hardly surprising. But this, too, underscores the complications that Trump’s lawyers have created for Republicans.
