Trump Legal News: No-no, no, no, no-no-no, no, no-no, Na-no, no, na-no, no-no

Ok, the proper name of the song by the Human Beinz is "Nobody but Me," but it's unofficially known by its most famous lyric, so we're running with it.

There wasn't all that much Trump legal news yesterday, but the one bit of news there was is pretty important. As expected, Judge Tanya Chutkan declined to recuse herself from overseeing the former president's Washington, DC prosecution. Her 20-page response absolutely eviscerates the arguments made by Trump's legal team, which was surely not hard for her to do, since those arguments were silly and were rooted in a gross misrepresentation of both the evidence and of legal precedent.

And so, the wheels of justice continue to grind at 333 Constitution Avenue, N.W., while March 4, 2024, gets closer and closer. (Z)
