Even Republican Presidents Would Seem to Have a Right to Free Speech

It seems to me that the point of the superpartisan congressional January 6 Commission is to tar former president Donald Trump with inciting a riot (“insurrection” for the hyperbolic), an issue they raised and lost in the second impeachment battle. Perhaps they hope to persuade the Department of Justice to institute some cooked-up criminal charges against him for his comments on January 6.  If I’m right about their objective, this week the Supreme Court in an unanimous opinion seems to have dealt them a  setback.

The Trump remarks on January 6, 2020

Here are the words in tweets and before an open assembly of his supporters that most set off his political enemies. They are clearly the words of an elected official critical of some other elected officials and urging a legislative remedy.

"States want to correct their votes, which they now know were based on irregularities and fraud, plus corrupt process never received legislative approval. All Mike Pence has to do is send them back to the States, AND WE WIN. Do it Mike, this is a time for extreme courage!"

“We will never give up. We will never concede. It doesn't happen. You don't concede when there's theft involved.”:snip:

"I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!" 

Obviously this is a Trumpist lie. Otherwise I'm sure Liz Cheney would have mentioned this several time during the  ongoing extremely non-partisan totally unbiased commission investigating the ultra violent assault on the US Capital Jan. 2 2021.
