Trump has apparently slipped yet another cog.

“Discussing a written demand from Donald Trump to the state of Georgia to decertify the 2020 presidential election results delivered late Friday, a CNN panel on Monday morning said they were baffled that the former president would pull such a stunt while under investigation for election tampering in the state.”

"First of all, he is under investigation for election interference. He is continuing to ask for the election to be decertified, trying to interfere with the election. Is this a setup for insanity defense? He is no longer president of the United States, he is not shielded -- not that he ever thinks about whether he is making his lawyer's case more difficult, but he is making it doubly difficult."

"There is a real threat," he added. "I think it increases why there needs to be legal accountability. It's clear he doesn't care. He does not believe he will ever be held accountable and, until someone shows him he's wrong, he will continue."
