      “We have just been through an intense election and emotions are high,” (Trump) said. “But now tempers must be cooled and calm restored.”

      “A new administration will be inaugurated on Jan. 20. My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation,” Trump added.

      “The demonstrators who infiltrated the capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy,” Trump said in the video message Thursday evening. “To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country and to those who broke the law, you will pay.”

      “My only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote. In doing so I was fighting to defend American democracy,” Trump said in Thursday’s video remarks of his efforts to overturn election results.

      Idiots really thought Trump was on their side.

      He now shows his real cowardice. The question now is

      can the POTUS incite insurrection without acting against

      the law? Trump is still President and therefore head of the

      executive branch. Just checking on Google shows article or

      paragraph 2383, where incitement against “the authority of

      the United States” and its laws is illegal. Punishment could be

      a fine or 10 years prison time, and that person could not hold

      public office ever again.

        This is the first time these questions have actually had to be asked in American history. It must be a great time to be a constitutional law student or a Supreme Court nerd.

        This would have to go to the Supreme Court if the Biden Administration allows prosecution. I bet Trump loses 6-3 or worse if it comes to that. Alito and Thomas might back Trump with their Unitary Executive bullshit, and maybe one of Trump’s appointees would as well, but at least Kavanaugh would go with Roberts and the so-called liberals and say no President is above the law. Who knows? Maybe Trump will lose 9-0. That would be cool.
