Good news, everyone! The looming specter of a Serious Trouble episode has prompted the Colorado Supreme Court to strike Trump from the primary ballot!

Oh my god, so much time spent on Hunter Biden. I've decided not to vote for him.

Unrelated to this week's episode, but I watched the first season of Slow Horses last week and it's instructive to note that Ken's rules about how to identify the Fed in your criminal/terrorist enterprise also apply if your crimes are being committed in the UK and the Feds are MI-5.

I'm glad Ken was able to get over Covid and is still fighting for justice. We definitely need a true Pope signal.

I just can't care about Hunter. Any federal conviction will surely get pardoned by his dad. Most people would do it if we were President and one of our relatives (that we didn't hate) was convicted of something.

It's just a matter of timing.

Isn't that fun charge being used in another case? I remember a woman. Just read about it in the past few weeks. Texas or California...

You guys have remarked a few times on the perhaps peculiar fact of Judge Engoron's clerk sitting beside him in court, but this absolutely wild scene from a Las Vegas courtroom suggests one reason for it: bodyguard duties

The tax case has me a little confused. If he paid all his back taxes, interest, fees, and penalties then how is this case going to be anything but a time suck for people and a paycheck for lawyers? Like, people hate taxes, and will a jury(if it even makes it that far) actually convict a guy that paid their taxes late?

I can't wait for the textualists on the Supreme Court to say the DOJ must ignore the text of the obstruction of an official proceeding criminal statute based on what they believe the legislative history says about the purpose for Congress adding the crime.
