51. They are leading in support of existing law I would assume.

"Trump and other U.S. officials are immune from civil lawsuits over police actions taken to protect a president and to secure his movements, government lawyers said of the actions taken ahead of a photo op of Trump"

My underline for highlight.

I believe this is in-line with historical precedent - HOWEVER... If the court finds a different perspective, then all bets are off.

It also opens up the doors for wild and crazy lawsuits against the Biden administration by the Right wing crazies on a whole range of matters (some real and some not so real).

Let's not over react to this. Let the DOJ run their processes according to how they're historically conducted. Let the judge decide.

Personally, I believe there was foul play by Barr and Trump, and I hope it plays out to a conviction.

ALSO: let's not forget that there are a number of concurrent cases in play - it may be appropriate for the DOJ to try and fight a few for whatever reason - I really don't know the logic...
