Justice Dept is bringing the thunder.

"People are going to shocked" with stories still to come out.

It will be harder for Republicans to minimize and deflect what the FBI and DOJ just said was possibly the largest investigation in its history.

Hi. I just sentenced a child molester to prison today.

So, since last Tuesday I've been on jury duty, as you may recall. I experienced the Capitol mob riot story a little differently, in fits and starts as I checked my phone between judge's recesses in courthouse. /1
Last week, we heard graphic testimony by a 17-year old girl alleging how her mom's boyfriend (her de facto father from age 2) raped and touched her from age 10 to 13. Our 12-person jury convicted him of two counts of aggravated sexual battery, and sentenced him today.
We were just the 4th jury trial in Fairfax Co., Va., since COVID. They're adjusting courtroom procedures for safety, which is why this trial went on longer than usual. My utmost respect to the officers of the court who hear this kind of thing regularly, and are trying to work.
