Flotsam and Jetsam - Biden Wins Michigan, Sort Of

While the rest of us were just going about our lives yesterday, Michigan held it's primary election. To no one's surprise, Donald Trump beat Nikki Haley handily, 68 to 27%.

I didn't even remember he was running.

Willis began. Since he was the primary source for the defense lawyer seeking to remove Willis from the case, the key question going forward will be whether Judge Scott McAfee believes him. But if he doesn’t, that could cut two ways. If Bradley is an unreliable witness, then his prior statements claiming knowledge that the romance began before Willis hired Wade could be seen as just as unreliable as what he is saying in court today." From Da Caller, ‘Why Would You Speculate?’: Trump Attorney Grills Key Witness Over Text That Could Blow A Hole In Fani Willis’ Defense. Capt. Ed at Hat Hair comments "Can't wait for McAfee's ruling at the end of this. The state bar may take an interest in Bradley by that time, as well as Wade and Willis.
