Stirrings

September 14, 2022

Presenting fake electoral slates was one of the more brazen parts of Trump’s coup attempt. Intuitively, those signing a fake certificate and those presenting it to the government as authentic, while knowing its statements are false, thereby should violate some law. That’s the case when people intentionally falsify a broad variety of mundane documents, from tax returns to real estate deeds. So it is good to see that the Justice Department recently served dozens of related subpoenas.

The MAGA world reacted by talking breathlessly about homes being raided. Palm Beach County Attorney David Aronberg said that “what [Steve Bannon] did was confuse search warrants with subpoenas.” Which goes too far to give the benefit of doubt. Bannon knows what a subpoena is: he is about to be sentenced in federal court for ignoring one.
