Something to keep in mind -

The attacks on Biden from the Democrat Establishment coincide with the ascent of Gavin Newsom.

How could the DNC avoid a messy primary and nominate their preferred candidate (Newsom)?

It’s in the fine print. Image
Biden is increasingly frail and confused, his dementia is worsening and his economic plan is faltering.

His popularity continues to crumble even among Democrats.

Consider the possibility that he resigns after receiving the Presidential nomination at the DNC 2024 convention. Image
Why that specific timing?

Because –

Rules adopted by the Democratic National Committee in 2022 leave the DNC as the sole authority to appoint a Presidential nominee where that nominee resigns after the August 2024 convention.

No vote or primary needed. Image
Newsom is already running a presidential campaign – his tour of China, Xi’s visit to SF (why not DC??), his civil rights stops in the US.

The question is whether he is targeting 2024 or 2028.

Maybe it’s both.

This is Newsom’s final term as governor; he’s barred from running in 2026.

Strategically, it is better for him to run now rather than wait until 2028. Think momentum.

What does Newsom have to say about a presidential run? Curious non-denials.

Something to think about.🤷‍♂️

Highlights from the deposition of Special Counsel David Weiss -

The DOJ initially denied his "special attorney" status - directing him to go through Biden's politically appointed US attorneys to charge Hunter Biden.

The DC US Attorney "decided not to join the [Hunter Biden tax] case as a partner or co-counsel."

He received a similar denial from the Central District of CA.

Refusals to prosecute the President's son for hooker tax deductions. Image
But - Weiss did understand he had "special attorney" status to prosecute those 2014-15 charges.

Curiously, he let the statute of limitations pass.

He refused to explain that mistake, or why he declined recommendations of the DOJ tax division.

Trump seeks to recuse DC Judge Tanya Chutkan -

Chutkan has suggested "Trump should be prosecuted and imprisoned"

These statements "are inherently disqualifying"

[thread] Image
Numerous statements by Chutkan suggesting Trump should be charged for January 6.

Expressing disappointment that Trump was not yet charged -

Criticizing a J6 Defendant's "blind loyalty to one person who, by the way, remains free to this day."
Chutkan's recusal should have been immediate - and she should have disqualified herself.

US Judges are to disqualify themselves where their "impartiality might reasonably be questioned." Image

We looked thru the recent history of Judge Tanya Chutkan, who presides over Trump's DC criminal case.

Our findings? She's treating Trump worse than other defendants - including a meth dealer.

Let me show you how...
This past week, Judge Chutkan gave Trump’s team one business day to respond to Special Counsel’s protective order (PO).

The Court's local rules allow for 14 days to respond.

Trump's team asked for more time, citing due process concerns.

She denied their requested extension Image
Judge Chutkan also set a hearing on the PO for Aug 11 -

Just one week after the PO was submitted, in a case involving millions of pages of documents and hundreds of witnesses.

She denied Trump's request for a hearing date where both his lawyers could be president.

Just how preferential is the Hunter Biden plea deal?

The two prosecutors on Hunter’s case – Leo Wise and Derek Hines – demanded 12 months in a less egregious tax case back in 2018.

They now recommend Hunter get probation.

An illuminating thread...
Wise and Hines are have been called prosecutorial "terminators"

They are described as hardliners who “pursue stern sentences and prosecute even small-time crooks.”

Their reputation comes from bringing some of the biggest public corruption cases in Maryland history Image
Wise helped bring the biggest racketeering case in Maryland history in 2016.

Wise and Hines would later prosecute corrupt Baltimore cops who robbed drug dealers and ran interference for a million-dollar heroin ring. Image

Supreme Court:

Race-based college admissions must "be invalidated under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment."

Universities "may never use race as a stereotype or negative"
Chief Justice Roberts addresses the dissent:

The Judiciary would pick "winners and losers based on the color of their skin."

They would uphold "separate but equal" as not inherently unequal.
Harsher words from Justice Roberts, addressing the dissent's support for race-based winners and losers:

"Lost in the false premise of judicial humility that the dissent espouses is a claim to power so radical, so destructive, that it required a Second Founding to undo."

The IRS whistleblower's deposition has been released.

Details on the sabotage of the Hunter Biden investigation -

The DOJ shut down questions on an e-mail to Hunter: "Ten held by H for the big guy"

DOJ demands not to ask about the "big guy"
A search request of Biden's guest house was denied - though it likely contained evidence.

An AUSA also rejected a search warrant affidavit of Hunter's storage unit - and then tipped off Hunter's lawyer.

There was support for charging Hunter with tax-related crimes from 2014 - 2019.

Venue was DC.

The Biden-appointed US attorney in DC did not support the charges.
