Open Thread: Score One for the Good Guys

According to the folks at Lawfare, the government won a key early ruling concerning a legal issue affecting hundreds of Jan. 6 Capitol Riot prosecutions.  That was on December 10.

Many of the defendants in cases related to the insurrection on Jan 6 have been charged with corruptly obstructing an official proceeding, which is a felony.  That charge has been challenged by some of the insurrectionist attorneys attorneys for the insurrectionists, and the ruling that came down on Friday, allowing that charge to stand.

Thank god for small favors, as we used to say.

We should celebrate all our victories, right?

I’ve been swamped with work lately, so swamped that I missed that public hearing last night.  If anyone has a good link, I would be grateful if you would throw it in the comments.

Open Thread.
