were Trump's 'beliefs' (even if erroneous) legitimate? IMO the prosecution must prove either a) that Trump really didn't hold such beliefs - or b) that such beliefs, even if truly held, were so irrational and deconstructed by evidence (and prevailing opinion) as to have no legitimacy. (and thus criminal to act upon?)

And then of course the biggy. Regardless the evidence presented - will a jury of 12 varied and disparate citizens bring down that verdict?
