Subj: It's because his supporters like that about him.

And yet he may still well win the Republican nomination.

It is interesting to me that becoming president does not have any prereqs on not being a criminal but most other jobs do. I guess most thought the electorate would not vote for such a guy.

Just disturbing to me. I somehow feel that he will find a way to weasel out of some of this.

Like for the documents, it is easy enough to have a scape goat and I think that is the direction he will go.

He should get hit though and for Jan. 6th alone he should be barred from office and held accountable for starting a riot.

In strictest terms it's irrational, but they think he's doing this on behalf of them. If not in some direct sense, in kind of a spiritual avatar kind of sense. And not even most Trump voters, but for his core supporters, they really identify with him. I think for a lot of them, especially those with the narcissistic persecution complex that's at the heart of their politics, the thought that he might be guilty of something is sort of unthinkable... because they don't feel they could be guilty of anything. And if they thought he DID do something illegal, they would probably think that he should be made a legal exception because of how important he is. I always think it's worth wondering how they got so attached. Or what the political and material conditions were such that that many people were susceptible to being taken up by it.
