A big talking point on cable news right now is whether Donald Trump's trial for charges in the January 6 investigation should be moved from Washington D.C. On Monday, West Virginia attorney general Patrick Morrisey joined Newsmax to lobby for his state to host it. He made some eye-opening comments in doing so.
Morrisey claimed that like the officers in the Rodney King trial, the D.C. snipers, the Oklahoma City bombing suspects and more, Trump deserves a destination change so he can get a fair trial. I'm not sure I would have used those examples if I was defending the former president.
There have to be other trials that were moved that also didn't involve what were essentially comic book villains.
In conservative circles, West Virginia has emerged as a popular potential destination, mostly because it's big-time Trump Country -- he won the state by nearly 40 points during the 2020 presidential election. If the state's attorney general can't come up with better comparison than that to make his case I wouldn't bet on West Virginia landing the trial.
