Trump accuses Biden not just of hateful rhetoric but also of “weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI like never, ever before, and raiding and breaking into the homes of their political opponents.” There is no acknowledgment from Trump, or his purblind defenders, that the FBI only searched Mar-a-Lago because he refused to turn over classified material that might endanger national security.

The former president said an indictment wouldn’t stop him from running for the White House again and repeatedly said Americans “would not stand” for his prosecution.
“If a thing like that happened, I would have no prohibition against running,” Trump said in an interview with conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt. “I think if it happened, I think you’d have problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we’ve never seen before. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it.”
I doubt anyone is surprised over Trump’s threats. If for no other reason than his history as a bully. His political life and style has always included a public persona roughly equivalent to the Italian Dictator Mussolini. He just hasn’t done as thorough a job as did “Il Duce” at controlling an organized gang of his supporters.
His hopes are still strong. He presumes…as many of us wonder…the Republican Party will eventually function as his Mafia.
