Not everyone in D.C. is a scuzzy swamp rat. In fact, there are still some seasoned politicians who stand as staunch defenders of the Constitution. Among these patriots is none other than Edwin Meese, former U.S. Attorney General during the Reagan era.
At the ripe old age of 91, Meese has not only offered his perspective on the Georgia racketeering (RICO) trial involving former DOJ Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Clark, and calling it as a “noteworthy challenge to federal authority,” but he also has some harsh words for Fani Willis and her weak case against President Trump.
“I have read the Indictment in State of Georgia v. Donald J Trump, et al., and focused on the allegations therein that reference Jeffrey B. Clark, who is one of the co-defendants in the case. The Indictment alleges that Mr. Clark drafted a letter and, on December 28, 2020, sent it to his superiors at the Department of Justice (the Acting Attorney General Jeff Rosen and the Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue), seeking their approval and co signature, and again sought their approval and co-signature on January 2, 2021,” Meese began. “The letter is alleged in the Indictment to be a criminal attempted false writing the alleged falsity of which lies in the difference between 1) the position the draft letter proposed that the Department of Justice take and 2) the position regarding the election in Georgia that was adhered to by the then-Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue.”
Meese expressed his belief that Clark was acting squarely within the scope of his federal office when he joined in former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss, despite the opposing views of DOJ as a whole on the subject of election fraud, as seen in the testimony of then-Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue.
Meese has now taken the giant step of submitting a brief in U.S. District Court, arguing that Fani Willis has infringed upon the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution.

It’s truly remarkable to see a 91-year-old man dedicating time and effort to this cause. May God bless him for his commitment to this country. Here’s a detailed image from a portion of the Meese brief:
