“The attack on our nation’s Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, was an unprecedented assault on the seat of American democracy,” said Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith, whose office has spent months investigating Trump.

The Trump campaign called the charges “fake” and asked why it took two-and-a-half years to bring them.

But prosecutors obliquely referenced a half-dozen co-conspirators, including lawyers inside and outside of government who they said had worked with Trump to undo the election results.

The indictment centers on the turbulent two months after the November 2020 election in which Trump refused to accept his loss and spread lies that victory was stolen from him.

The indictment had been expected since Trump said in mid-July that the Justice Department had informed him he was a target of its investigation.

In New York, state prosecutors have charged Trump with falsifying business records about a hush money payoff to a porn actor before the 2016 election.

Prosecutors in Georgia are also investigating efforts by Trump and his allies to reverse his election loss to Biden there. »

Now, several months later, the bureau’s investigation is complete, and it turns out that the agency that disobeyed the White House and purchased the creepy NSO tool was...the FBI.

You’d think that America’s top police agency would be a little bit more on top of its own operations than this . »

Berlin’s Delicate Balance With Beijing

Whether the European way with China turns out to be the right way is in large part up to Germany.

Germany’s first national security strategy released in June mentioned China only in a cursory way, and Taiwan tensions not at all, raising expectations for the long-awaited China strategy.

Germany’s new China strategy is, at its core, an economic security strategy, in which hard security issues are given only secondary consideration. »
