WC’s Closing Argument


WC’s fantasy: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the purpose of closing argument is to provide you with a summary of the People’s case challenging the validity of the election of President Donald Trump. My words to you now are not evidence. The evidence is the weeks of testimony you have heard and 300-plus exhibits…
