Thanks for clarification. Sounds like plenty to keep him busy. If charged in DC, is this likely to proceed more quickly that the classified documents stuff in Florida? Would a trial pull him off the campaign or can he choose not to show up and just send lawyers? Any indication of investigation of those in congress that may have been involved? Basic stuff, I know, but you're my best source of this type of information.

Randall,

Great discussion. Looking forward to seeing more of your take as the January 6 case unfolds.

You may know that earlier this month, a very prominent group of lawyers published a model pros memo that describes in detail (in 200+ pages) the evidence against Trump, as well as an analysis of just about every legal issue that one could imagine will come up in the case. It appears in the publication Just Security:

Trump on Trial: A Model Prosecution Memo for Federal Election Interference Crimes, Second Edition by Norman Eisen, Noah Bookbinder, Donald Ayer, Joshua Stanton, E. Danya Perry, Debra Perlin, and Kayvan Farchadi

I bring this to your readers' attention in case someone really wants to get into the weeds. Although the memo addresses some offenses that will not be charged, its discussion of the evidence that has become public, and the legal issues that will likely arise will remain current long after the indictment is returned.
