Day 1022

1/ Trump “stands alone in American history” for his efforts to overturn his loss in the 2020 presidential election, special counsel Jack Smith’s office said in a court filing. In a 79-page court filing, prosecutors asked a judge to reject Trump’s “meritless effort” to dismiss their four-count indictment, saying “no other president has engaged in conspiracy and obstruction to overturn valid election results and illegitimately retain power.” Prosecutor said they plan to show that Trump repeatedly lied about the results of the 2020 election as part of a conspiracy to subvert the legitimate results, and that he is now attempting to “rewrite the indictment” and “sanitize” his conduct by making claims that are full of “distortions and misrepresentations.” In total, Trump has made four attempts to dismiss the federal indictment charging him with attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election, which culminated in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by his supporters.
