Three sad and troubling stories bring 2020 to a close: Recent reporting shows that Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance is moving toward indicting Trump by hiring forensic accounting experts.
As a former career prosecutor, I can say with certainly that this is a sure sign Vance is moving TOWARD (not away from) criminally charging Trump, as prosecutors do not undertake to hire expensive forensic experts unless they are heading in the direction of indictment and trial.
The United Nations issues a statement that Trump’s pardons of the convicted Blackwater defendants violates international law and calls on all state members of the Geneva Conventions to condemn Trump’s horrific decision.
Finally, Senator Josh Hawley is determined to object to and try to override the will of the American voters in an undemocratic attempt to keep a criminal president in power notwithstanding the indisputable fact that Trump lost the election. I suspect we are all happy to see 2020 go.
