LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Now, not wanting to leave politics, apparently, is the basis for a federal crime. Are you listening to these people? Has anyone, by the way, told Nancy Pelosi and Dick Durbin about this? 

The bottom line is this: Trump was charged with two counts of conspiracy and two counts of obstruction of an official proceeding for adopting and pressing an unconventional and controversial legal view: that the electors in this presidential race could be replaced with new electors. Well, the indictment, according to that analysis, is a complete sham.

If this is how low the bar is set going forward, then Smith and Garland and every prosecutor who pushed this fraud of a case should all expect to face similar treatment to what they're putting Trump through. In this indictment, the drama queens in Smith's office claim that Trump was determined to remain in power in conspiracies that targeted a bedrock function of the United States federal government. The nation's process of collecting, counting and certifying the results of the presidential election. 

Now, again, by this same logic, an aggressive Republican lawyer could argue that the Biden prosecutors themselves are the ones currently conspiring to target a bedrock function of the U.S. government. In this case, the 2024 presidential election.
