Littwin: What the heavily redacted affidavit for Mar-a-Lago search doesn’t redact is Trump’s growing legal woes

I’ve read over the heavily redacted affidavit justifying the Mar-a-Lago search warrant several times because, well, it’s my job.

The most obvious question before us following Thursday night’s powerful, Trump-eviscerating Jan. 6 committee hearing is whether it moved the needle even a little.

Opinion: This Democrat hopes for the restoration of a healthy Republican Party

In the past couple of weeks, Congress’ Select Committee has presented persuasive, unrebutted evidence that Donald J. Trump, the duly-elected 45th President, refused to abide by the will of the People. He knew, full well, that he had lost both the popular vote and the determinative Electoral College vote, by a substantial margin, and that […]
