"Trump's former senior adviser Stephen Miller, president of the Maga-allied legal group America First Legal, is playing a key role in seeking lawyers fully in sync with Trump's radical agenda to expand his power and curb some major agencies.

His search is for those with unswerving loyalty to Trump, who could back Trump's increasingly authoritarian talk about plans to "weaponize" the DoJ against critics, including some he has labeled as "vermin"."

.

"Trump doesn't care about the rule of law or the quality of the criminal justice system. He only cares about fealty to him

"They're looking for lawyers who worship Trump and will do his bidding," Ty Cobb, a former White House lawyer during the Trump years and former justice department official, said.

"Trump is looking to Miller to pick people who will be more loyal to Trump than the rule of law."

America's First King!

Above the Law and above the People.

Trump is out here publicly telling people he plans on abusing his power and acting like a dictator yet people still support him. The republican party is in open revolt against everything America has traditionally stood for.

It seems to be a strategery that werks well with nationalistic rwing populists:

Tell them the only way you can lose is if the election is rigged, while you yourself are busy rigging it.

Then, when that fails, tell them that your crimes are the weaponization of the DOJ rather than the Law werking to convict you of your crimes.

Once the first Big Lie
is swallowed, the next ones go down easily enough.

He's not winning from prison or anywhere else.
