“The story of its ruin is simple and obvious; and, instead of inquiring why the Roman Empire was destroyed, we should rather be surprised that it had subsisted so long. The victorious legions, who, in distant wars, acquired the vices of strangers and mercenaries, first oppressed the freedom of the republic, and afterwards violated the majesty of the purple. The emperors, anxious for their personal safety and the public peace, were reduced to the base expedient of corrupting the discipline which rendered them alike formidable to their sovereign and to the enemy; the vigor of the military government was relaxed, and finally dissolved, by the partial institutions of Constantine; and the Roman world was overwhelmed by a deluge of Barbarians.” — Edward Gibbon. The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Chapter 38 “General Observations on the Fall of the Roman Empire in the West”

Former President Donald Trump had harsh words for Judge Arthur Engoron after he denied a motion in the $250 million civil fraud case filed against him by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Engoron upset Trump after he ruled that his Monday testimony must go forward, leading the former president to declare the judge should be “thrown off the bench.”

“We have totally proven our Case,” he wrote on his Truth Social platform Tuesday afternoon.

He also ripped into his former fixer lawyer, Michael Cohen, as the attorney general’s “sole witness” while calling for him to be “prosecuted for his lies.”

Trump wrote: We have totally proven our Case against the Corrupt, Racist, New York Attorney General, Letitia “Peekaboo” James. The Banks, Insurance Companies, virtually everybody said we were “GREAT,” PERFECT LOANS, NO VICTIMS! Their sole Witness has been completely discredited, and admitted he lied about everything. He was the only Witness they had, and should be prosecuted for his lies. The Judge and the A.G. falsified the value of Mar-a-Lago and other Assets to make me look as bad as possible, and got caught.

“Well, I, as you might imagine, the FBI cannot — especially at a time like that — be talking about an ongoing investigation,” Wray replied.
