Do you think crime reports are complicating things instead of actually helping?
I don’t think it complicates things. In fact, I don’t think it’s going to do anything for the Department of Justice. I don’t think it pushes them to do anything more quickly or more aggressively.

Todd doesn’t seem to understand the consequences of trying to overthrow the government, and introducing criminals is not the same as an attempted coup.
