Donald Trump has gained some support from an unlikely source. CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin penned an op-ed on Monday calling on Attorney General Merrick Garland not to pursue charges against the former president despite his attempts to overturn the 2020 election and his role in the January 6 Capitol attack. “It’s one thing to describe the former president’s behavior as disgraceful and wrong — and I’d share that view — but quite another to argue that Trump should be criminally prosecuted,” Toobin wrote. “Based on the available evidence, there is no basis to prosecute Trump and little reason even to open a criminal investigation.”
Bottom line, there was never an insurrection on January 6th and Trump clearly told protestors to stay peaceful that day. Damn right he shouldn’t be prosecuted.
