    Really? You really need an answer to that, why was Paul Pelosi or Shaton Tate, MLK, Senators playing a game of baseball targeted.. Really revealing you'd ask that!

    There is a nut job out there for every high profile person..

    Blame that on the media..

    No, it targets convicted felons.

    Why now? I think a better question is why would the secret service have ever protected an incarcerated felon.

    I don’t see why all the maga sect are suddenly freaking out, y’all have all asserted his innocence and said he will never be convicted much less incarcerated. So what are you concerned about?

    I would have to think so but I've not delved into the specifics of this proposed legislation.

    After November, Joe Biden will pardon Agent Oranges after his criminal trials are over. There maybe more coming after SCOTUS and Cannon get involved.

    Its statute that is getting created by the House bill. All they have to do is add the following 'Notwithstanding any other provision in federal statute...' or they can list the statutes to which you refere that they intend to amend with the provisions in the bill.

    lol…why would anyone want to kill trump?
    The libs want to see him alive to pay for his crimes and maga would elevate him to the level of Mandela for his stint in jail.
    Maybe we should be making trump pay for the security for all the people he targets while on trial. His incessant whining and attacks are helping to incite his maga supporters to commit more drastic acts in his defense.
    Should we hold him responsible if some maga succeeds in harming a witness, juror or justice official because of his “free speech”?

    Yes, that duty will be transferred to the prison guards.

    You want the SS to sit in the prison cell with Trump? That wouldn't be fair.

    Besides, I think the neo-nazis will make sure he is safe in the joint.

    Sometimes ya just have to sit back and laugh and the incredible irony, contradictions and double standards the left engages in. On one hand, they don't want cash bail, they don't want non violent offenders in prison (some even want to empty prisons) and instead getting sent to prison for murder,* some libs want to send the perp to a diversionary program. On the other hand, the left wants to send a non violent person to prison simply be of extreme hatred and bigotry.

    *Oakland gang bangers killed a 2 year old during a gun battle on a highway. The last I heard, the DA was looking at the murderer being sentenced to a diversionary program.

    Maybe because he was never convicted of anything. And I didn’t know rioters got secret service protection.

    Laws can't be applied retroactively.

    They should have thought about that before now. The law can't be applied retroactively.

    I wonder what Obama was thinking when he extended secret service protection to former presidents? I'm sure he thought that plenty of people might want to have a go at trying to take him out. What's with Democrats that they give and then take it away when it's someone they don't like? They should think about the precedent before they act.
