Donald Trump doesn’t mess around. He was our Bully-in-Chief for four years as he emulated dictators all over the world. In the last several days he issued threats against anyone who goes after him and we know what that means. So Special Counsel Jack Smith — who Trump insists is deranged — has sought a protective order. Associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman just visited with Judge Tanya Chutkan, and no lawyer or litigant would dare tangle with her.
Sherman has reviewed Judge Chutkan’s order but she is not allowed to reveal it to us, even though AP has more readers than ever. But we can tell you that Trump has enlisted his close personal friends at the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers. Which is why Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is in his bunker deep under the Pentagon.
We here at AP are following this breaking news very closely. So is Chris Christie, one of the few gop presidential candidates who tells it like it is. Christie is taking his cues from former Texas Congressman Will Hurd, who knows full well that Trump is running against President Biden to stay out of prison.
