<< A Virginia-based federal appeals court blocked the Trump administration's controversial travel ban ...

“We remain unconvinced [the ban] has more to do with national security than it does with effectuating the President’s promised Muslim ban," the court said. >>

WTF? Since when does somebody have to convince a court of their innocence?!?! Moreover, since when do the courts judge intentions of actions rather than whether the actions contain something illegal?!?!

BTW, this is very much related to the position of people like Josh Marshall and David Frum, who lament the fact that investigations of Trump will be looking for crimes that he did not commit, and thus he will remain unpunished for politics that is not illegal but is not liked by the left. These people really want law and order to be a tool for persecution of their political opponents:

"The simple point is that the most important ‘bad acts’ may well not be crimes.That means not only is no one punished but far, far more important, we would never know what happened."
