He said he called the shots as to whether or not he believed the election was rigged. He did NOT say he called the shots to overturn the election. I'm no lawyer, but I know there's a difference. But don't get me wrong. I still want the music of Trump's life to be the CLANK of big metal doors latching tightly shut. I wanna see him try to balance his heft on a tiny stainless steel toilet for the rest of his days. I wanna see him rejected by the aryans because he has a big fuckin' mouth. But this isn't what's going to do it. There were probably some other smaller gives he made in that interview and many interviews.

He says his belief that the election was stolen was his decision alone. Odd phrasing, but most of his babbling is odd. But he doesn’t admit to trying to overturn it. If the prosecutor can use these statements against him, great. But it doesn’t seem like stronger evidence than what he already has.

"I watched that election and I thought the election was over at 10 O'clock in the evening"

The Special Prosecutor is going to pose those statements as questions to YOUR JURY lumpey.
