Never mind that the case has nothing to do with Trump.
I thought that too, then started to think the Jury has had it up to the eyeballs in “information” and would stroke out at more. They are ready to go home.
Most people follow you in mathematics operations maybe for three minutes before their eyeballs start to glaze over.
