Trump’s get out of trial card

Loading

Oh my, how times change.

That Jack Smith is desperate to convict Donald Trump before he can be nominated is the worst kept secret in the world at the moment.

Special Counsel Jack Smith is working overtime to imprison former U.S. President Donald Trump prior to the 2024 presidential election, admits CNN legal expert Elie Honig. Smith is working to fast-track numerous criminal indictments against Trump with the ultimate goal of a conviction that could disrupt the former President’s campaign endeavours, in a flagrant election interference attempt by the Biden regime.

Smith’s procedural efforts are way out of the norm

Honig pointed out on CNN that Smith’s urgency is evident in his procedural requests. For instance, Smith initially sought a trial date five months out for a case of significant complexity, considerably shorter than the typical one-and-a-half to two years for most federal conspiracy and fraud trials. Moreover, he observed that Smith’s immediate appeal to the Supreme Court following a district court victory on immunity confirms his rush against time.

I like this

Trump maintains that these indictments are politically motivated.

Of course they’re politically motivated. Joe Biden has weaponized the legal system against Trump back in 2022 when made clear to Merrick Garland that he wanted Trump prosecuted.

A new report claims President Joe Biden has told people he wants former President Donald Trump to be prosecuted.

The leak was published in the New York Times on Saturday as Democrats mount increasing pressure on the Justice Department to take action against Trump and people within his orbit in relation to the Capitol riot. At focus are Attorney General Merrick Garland and his “deliberative approach,” as the report put it, which is causing frustration.

All of the legal proceedings against Trump are scheduled to maximally interfere with his potential Presidential campaign. Smith wants to deny Trump his right to appeal and go straight to trial.

Mr. Smith wants the Court to skip the normal appellate process through the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and rule promptly so the Jan. 6 trial can begin on March 4.

Hard to make this more obvious than it is.

The other day I caught something from Byron York. He posted a link to CNN senior analyst @eliehonig about the actions of Federal prosecutors. It’d in the Justice manual

This could not be more obvious. It should be Trump’s get out of trial card and that brings me back to three years ago.

David Weiss, the weasel US attorney for Maryland and Biden mafia family protector, foot-dragged the Hunter Biden investigation in 2020. He intentionally allowed the statute of limitations to run out on the worst of Hunter Biden’s tax evasion crimes and buried the laptop story under the guise of not interfering in an election.

Once again, we see the specter of a two-tiered justice system at work and it always seems to work against Republicans.

Remember how Roger Stone and Peter Navarro SWATed and or shackled for defying a subpoena? Think Hunter is going to face the same under this regime?

Not a chance. Smith’s actions are baldly political and this is clearly a political persecution, not a prosecution.

And since democrats so big on “direct evidence ” in their defense of Biden, let’s make it clear that there is no direct evidence linking Trump to whatever happened in DC on Jan 6. He was not there nor did he ever tell anyone to invade the Capitol or act in an illegal manner. He directed them to act “peacefully.”

That “Justice Manual.”
Is it “law” or merely “policy?”
If it’s law the Supreme Court would have no problem throwing Jack Smith’s case out as regards timing and rushing his case.
If its policy, it would be up to Merrick Garland and he’s in Jack’s corner.

As to two-tiered justice system at work, while “Roger Stone and Peter Navarro [were] SWATed and or shackled for defying a subpoena,” joe is hiding Hunter in plain sight by shuttling him into and out of the White House and his Delaware homes on Marine One while he’s openly defying his subpoena.

Again, Trump was impeached because he asked Zelinsky questions about Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden’s and Hunter’s overt corruption on a private phone call, considered election interference. Here, the DoJ, in coordination with some state prosecutors, is engaged in a massive campaign to destroy Trump’s candidacy with the sole intent to keep him from running. This is nothing BUT election interference on an industrial scale.

Desperate, cowardly, fascist Democrats.

They know they will not be able to stop him at the ballot box this time. They are desperate

Smith is the one who belongs in Prison him Soros, Gates Biden Clinton(Bill)and all the rest behind this attempt to usurp our Nations Soventry into the NWO

Need ‘Red States’ to start taking Biden off their State’s ballot.

NYT Says Quiet Part Out Loud: ‘Defeating Trump is Just the Start’.

There’s nothing unusual about requesting an expedited review by the Supreme Court. Trump has repeatedly done so, and the prosecution – acting on behalf of the USA – has the same right of request.
It’s clear Trump’s primary effort is to avoid accountability for as long as he can, hoping he’ll have the opportunity to pardon himself and his friends. That’s a far larger perversion of justice.

BREAKING: President Trump Takes the Gloves Off, Asks the Court to Hold Jack Smith in Contempt For Violating Order

Good for the Trump team. Jack shit is an unconstitutional appointment.

…And, by filing that motion, Team Trump violates the same order.

Not hardly zipperhead.

“The Stay Order is clear, straightforward, and unambiguous. All substantive proceedings in this Court are halted. Despite this clarity, the prosecutors began violating the Stay almost immediately. First, within five days of the Court entering the Stay Order, the prosecutors served thousands of pages of additional discovery, together with a purported draft exhibit list. Through counsel, President Trump advised that he rejected the prosecutors’ unlawful productions, that their actions violated the Stay Order, and that he would seek relief if their malicious conduct continued.” Trump’s lawyer Todd Blanche wrote.

01/04/24 – Trump companies got millions from foreign governments, report says

Donald Trump’s hotels and other businesses accepted more than $7.8m (£6.1m) from foreign governments during his presidency, according to a new report from Democrats in Congress.

They found that China was responsible for more than $5.5m of those payments, which Mr Trump is accused of accepting in violation of the US constitution.

The report is based on documents released by Mr Trump’s former accounting firm after a court battle.

Mr Trump did not immediately comment.

The US constitution bars presidents from accepting gifts or other benefits derived from their position without express permission from Congress.

The former businessman, who made his name as a hotel and property developer, has been dogged by questions about his firms’ dealings since he entered the White House in January 2017.

At the time, he placed his sons in charge of the companies’ day-to-day operations but maintained ownership of the businesses, which included the Trump International Hotel in Washington, which became a known haunt for lobbyists, foreign delegations and others.

Mr Trump, who is currently campaigning for a second term, faced numerous lawsuits alleging conflicts-of-interest.

In 2021, America’s highest court threw out the cases, saying they were moot after he lost the 2020 election.

Representative Jamie Raskin, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, said the investigation showed Mr Trump “put lining his pockets with cash from foreign governments seeking policy favors over the interests of the American people”.

“The report’s detailed findings make clear that we don’t have the laws in place to deal with a president who is willing to brazenly convert the presidency into a business for self-enrichment and wealth maximization with the collusive participation of foreign state,” he wrote in the introduction to the report.

Democrats said their investigation showed that Mr Trump’s loyalties were split by the payments, which came from at least 20 governments many of which had sensitive or politically charged matters before the US.

They cite as an example that Mr Trump supported arms sales to Saudi Arabia that were opposed by Congress due to fears the weapons would be used against civilians.

The report also notes he cast doubt on US intelligence assessments that the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman had ordered the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

After China, Saudi Arabia and its royal family was the second biggest patron of the Trump businesses, spending more than $600,000 at his properties, according to the report.

Qatar, Kuwait and India rounded out the top five list.

Democrats said that the findings reflect just the first two years of his presidency and only four of his properties, claiming it likely represented just a fraction of the money Mr Trump’s businesses made from foreign governments during his time as president.

In 2022, Democrats lost control of Congress and could no longer compel release of documents, cutting short the investigation.

Republican James Comer, who is leading an inquiry into the business dealings of President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, during his father’s vice presidency, dismissed the findings.

“It is beyond parody that Democrats continue their obsession with former President Trump,” he said in a statement. “Former President Trump has legitimate businesses but the Bidens do not.”

Mr Trump’s tax records, released in 2022, revealed significant business losses during his presidency and he has scaled back his business.

The Trump Organization sold the Washington hotel to an investment group for $375m in 2022.

Another nothing burger junior.

Wait… you mean while Trump’s businesses were in blind trusts, they continued to DO business? Tell me, did Trump have to extort any countries to get prosecutors fired that jeopardized any of his children’s no-show job salary? Did any of his children call any Chinese businessmen and tell them the President was sitting right next to him and unless he wants the vengeance of the United States to fall upon them, send $5 million forthwith? How many times did the Trump children fly on AF1 to foreign countries to make some business deals on the side?

Trump has done nothing illegal and Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden is a corrupt f**king criminal. THE END.

Court orders don’t stop leftists. They know the DoJ gives them a blank check.

Oh yeah. They are democrats. They are politically privileged.

The Judicial Clerk is supposed to reject the Jaw-Jack’s filings, report the attempt to the Judge, and the Court under its own ruling Sua Sponte impose Rule 11 sanctions upon the prosecutor[s]… it’s procedure. The defense (DJT) should also file a complaint with the Judicial Commission!

You may not speak ill of Our Leader; retribution follows for saying Trump is arrogant—even off the record.

It’s obvious that Trump is maintaining control over the GOP by intimidation. Merit has nothing to do with his lead.

President Trump completely exonerated, never went to the island, never got a “massage.”

Maybe he didn’t get a massage, but I posted a link to a deposition by a woman who said under oath that she was forced to give Trump a hand job when she was thirteen years old.

Any control Trump has is because he is a superb leader and got lots of positive things done for this country. Trump was a successful President, despite Democrat obstruction and unconstitutional insurrectionist coup attempts.

Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden is just a failed piece of shit that the puppet masters want to remain in place to give them anonymous control.

Wait… what? Trump is arrogant? When did THAT start? Is that an impeachable offense? Prosecutable?

Dumbass.

Obama was arrogant and, worse, he had no reason to be. What about Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden? “If you don’t know if you are for me, you ain’t black”… RACIST and arrogant.

Give me a f**king break, you whiny crybaby.

Being an authoritarian asshole isn’t prosecutable either. That doesn’t mean we deserve to see one become president.

Trump is a world-class arrogant prick.

Really? You mean something finally got through that thick, leftist, whiny, crybaby, sore loser skull of yours?

“sore loser”

Greg didn’t lose anything, but Trump sure did: the 2020 presidential election.

No evidence Biden won,

To the left, stealing is “winning”.

Wow! The guy who lost the election says that he actually won? Who’d a-thunk it?!

The entire nation lost. That’s the result of election fraud; we ALL get screwed. Some, like yourself, simple enjoy watching the nation deteriorate.

Greg didn’t lose anything, but Trump sure did: the 2020 presidential election.

Yep. And it’s no surprise the Democrats cheated in 2020. Y’all have been cheating since 1948.

Part of the gig moron, who by an arrogant can think he should be the leader of the free world, no introvert ever tried. Yes he is world class, the Bidens have no class.

I guess that means his own Social Security checks are taxable.

IRA withdrawals have ALWAYS been taxable. Withdrawals from traditional 410K plans have ALSO always been taxable. They simply defer tax obligations until a later date.

I guess that means his own Social Security checks are taxable.

Isn’t it kind of disgusting that he even draws Social Security? He has at least $10 million in off shore banks. Why doesn’t he donate his salary like Trump did? Oh, that’s right… because he’s a greedy, money-grubbing, corrupt criminal that STEALS taxpayer money. Yeah… that’s it.

Unlike the guy selling non-physical trading cards to idiots?

You can also buy an imaginary piece of his mugshot suit.

If someone doesn’t want it, they shouldn’t buy it. That is nothing, however, similar to the Biden Crime Family’s corruption.

$99 each for non-physical trading “cards”. It’s a litmus test for stupidity—much like the coming election.

Stupidity… SUPREME stupidity is supporting Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden, proven to be a corrupt, treasonous pedophile, who has created one disaster after another and failed at everything.

The piece of the suit is authenticated. Want a physical copy of your trading card print it and have it laminated.
Jealous cause no one wants any democrat trading card?

If he’s getting Social Security, it’s because he paid into it. No stealing involved. If he gets paid to be President, it’s because people get paid for doing their jobs. No stealing involved.

He has stolen enough money where he could give up his Social Security, if he wasn’t a greedy leech. Yeah, people get paid for doing their jobs. People also get FIRED for failing at their job. Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden has been a complete and total disaster. Trump was a great success and still didn’t take a salary.

They want unrealized gains. Can I write off the losses for the years asshole has been in office?

The celebrities have been “endorsed” by Biden? What does that even mean?

You know who Trump endorsed? Epstein. Trump said Epstein was a terrific guy. He even indicated that he knew that Epstein went after young girls.

You know who Trump endorsed? Epstein. 

And you know who Biden eulogized? A high ranker of the KKK

That sucks. I imagine that even you might find someone to say a eulogy over your withered, scab-encrusted, disease-ridden, stinking carcass. (You should start looking; that day’s probably not too far away. You’re pretty old, right?)

“You know nothing about me, groomer.”

That’s not true at all. I know—all kidding aside—that you’re one of the worst, most detestable human beings I’ve ever personally interacted with.

you’re one of the worst, most detestable human beings I’ve ever personally interacted with.

This. This is the reason most of you on the left are incompatible with normal society. You consider your participation in a blog forum personal interaction.

Get out into the real world, groomer. Not the world of children. Not the world of internet forums. The real world. Or………………..
seek mental health treatment.

People that are patriotic, believe in the Constitution, want to protect children from sexual predators, want our borders secured, want a strong economy, want energy independence and security, want some dignity back in the White House are, to people like Michael, “detestable”.

This was, of course, before Epstein was proven to be a pedophile. But, you know, that’s just facts and shit… nothing you are ever interested in.

“This was, of course, before Epstein was proven to be a pedophile.”

Well, no. He indicated that he knew that Epstein went after young girls. That was all in the same quote where he said that Epstein was terrific.

He “indicated”? What, a secret hand signal only you can decipher?

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump booms from a speakerphone. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

It is even said….. hmm sounds like a second hand knowledge statement.

Says nothing about girls. Young women. (some men prefer women. Look it up) So, once again, you are proven stupid and I am proven correct. And, again, before it was known what he was up to.

This is too easy. Send me someone that is a challenge.

Trump is a world-class arrogant prick.

You may have a point. That’s probably, in part, what made him an effective leader and prevented other countries from continuing to take advantage of us. But, we currently have an authoritarian turd a President, via election fraud, that has no other intention than to steal taxpayer money. Trump was never authoritarian. Never.

Meanwhile, Obama was an arrogant jack-off that failed at everything; he had NO REASON to be arrogant. Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden is an arrogant piece of shit because he knows as long as Herr Obergruppenfuhrer Garland has his back, he can break all the rules and laws he wants, graft all the money he wants, and nothing will happen to him.

The amicus brief SCOTUS could use to make Jack Smith go away

“The argument raised by Meese and friends is not directly related to immunity. Instead, they assert that Jack Smith doesn’t have the authority to prosecute Trump. They have two reasons, both relatively technical. The first is that Jack Smith was a private citizen when Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed him as special counsel, and private citizens cannot be tasked with special counsel duties. (Smith was an assistant United States attorney during the Clinton and Obama administrations but has been a special prosecutor at The Hague, investigating war crimes in Kosovo, since 2018.) The second argument is that no statute authorizes the attorney general, rather than the president, with the advice and consent of the Senate, to appoint a special counsel.”

Last week AFL filed a FOIA request against the Defense Department for more information on a secretive committee created by Barack Obama

In 2014 Obamak.

“Special Counsel Jack Smith’s indictment against former President Trump, claims “Trump was not authorized to possess or retain…classified documents.” But Obama’s PITC memo may have created a reasonable belief in President Trump that he, in fact, had such authority,” America First Legal said.

“Unlocking this secret of the Obama presidency is not only important for public transparency, it has clear implications for whether the government may have failed to disclose necessary information to the defendant as part of its prosecution of former President Trump – and this information may significantly affect the evidentiary support relied upon in indicting and continuing to prosecute a former President. The American people deserve to know the truth behind this secretive memo and how it has been used,” said America First Legal’s Dr. Dan Epstein.

Via America First Legal:

In October 2014, Russian hackers breached the Executive Office of the President (EOP)’s network. In response, President Obama created, via executive action, PITC. PITC includes representatives of the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security, among others.

Why is the committee relevant today? 

First, PITC creates a presumption that the President controls all information he receives. The PITC memo established the President’s exclusive control over information resources and systems provided to the President. (§ 1, ¶ 2.). The memo created the presumption that information contained on information systems and resources was “EOP information.” ( § 4(f)). Because the memo relied upon the Federal Records Act’s definition of “information system” as resources organized for the “use” and “disposition” of “information”, the memo gives the President exclusive control over information he receives. This is relevant to what a President may reasonably believe about information given to him while in office.

Second, and related, if information stored on the PITC network formed the basis for Special Counsel Jack Smith’s prosecution of former President Trump, that evidence should have been disclosed to the former President and may be relevant to his liability.   

Special Counsel Jack Smith’s indictment against former President Trump, claims “Trump was not authorized to possess or retain…classified documents.” But Obama’s PITC memo may have created a reasonable belief in President Trump that he, in fact, had such authority. Additionally, if the records Trump allegedly destroyed are still preserved within the EOP or the U.S. Department of Defense as part of PITC-created information systems, then other claims in the indictment may be baseless.  

These explosive findings are consistent with America First Legal’s whitepaper contending that the President of the United States has absolute authority over presidential papers. Neither Congress nor the federal courts may lawfully abrogate or limit this authority.

Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden had no such authority as Senator or Vice President. Yet, his possession of classified documents, stored in a place and fashion that made the readily available to anyone in the vicinity, including the Chinese that occupied the same office building he was in, is not prosecuted. Clearly, this is nothing but political persecution of Trump and, of course, the accusations are baseless anyway.

02/09/24 – Trump legal news brief: Citing witness death threats, Jack Smith asks Judge Cannon to reconsider ‘clear error’ in ruling
Government prosecutors on special counsel Jack Smith’s team file papers asking Judge Aileen Cannon to reconsider her “clear error” in granting a request from lawyers for former President Donald Trump to reveal the identity of certain witnesses in the classified documents case. Here are the latest legal developments involving the Republican frontrunner seeking to be reelected to the White House in 2024.

Jan. 6 election interferenceSmith asks Cannon to reconsider ‘clear error’ in ruling in classified documents case
Key players: Special counsel Jack Smith, Judge Aileen Cannon

  • In court papers filed late Thursday, government prosecutors on Smith’s team asked Cannon to reconsider her ruling that would allow Trump’s lawyers to identify some witnesses in the case by name despite the possible risks doing so would pose to those witnesses, Salon reported.
  • “That discovery material, if publicly docketed in unredacted form as the Court has ordered, would disclose the identities of numerous potential witnesses, along with the substance of the statements they made to the FBI or the grand jury, exposing them to significant and immediate risks of threats, intimidation, and harassment, as has already happened to witnesses, law enforcement agents, judicial officers, and Department of Justice employees whose identities have been disclosed in cases in which defendant Trump is involved,” prosecutors wrote in the filing.
  • Citing past court precedent on naming witnesses who faced security risks, Smith’s team said in the filing that Cannon, who was appointed to the federal bench by Trump, “applied the wrong legal standard” and that “reconsideration is warranted to correct clear error.”
  • On Wednesday, Smith’s team revealed the Justice Department had opened an investigation into online death threats made against one of the government’s witnesses. That disclosure, however, was not enough to sway Cannon to keep the identities of other witnesses sealed.
  • In response to the filing, Cannon paused her ruling from taking effect and asked Trump’s lawyers for a response.
  • If Cannon ends up standing by her earlier ruling allowing the identities of certain witnesses to be revealed, Smith could appeal that decision with the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Why it matters: Legal experts have long noted Cannon’s history of controversial rulings in the case that have benefited Trump. By flagging Cannon’s “clear error” in their latest filing, Smith’s team could be laying the groundwork to try to have her removed from the case.

Witnesses?

No this isnt DC Court, the judge will follow the law.

Everyone has a right to face their accuser in a courtroom. The incidence of death threats from Trump supporters is well documented.

The incidence of death threats from Trump supporters is well documented.

By who?

I would love to see these documents, its a crime so there must be convictions. Maybe they are “deleted” like the nutbags threats.

If the threats were made at night, when the resources of the FBI are rendered totally ineffective, there would be no documentation.

Are they? Such as?

Judge Cannon however denied Jack Smith’s request to keep under seal the names of government witnesses in the Mar-a-Lago case.

“Upon in camera review of the subject attachment, and mindful of the disfavored nature of ex parte proceedings, the Court reaffirms the Special Counsel’s request to seal the attachment referenced in the Special Counsel’s Motion for Leave but finds an insufficient basis provided to deviate from the adversarial process in this instance. The Special Counsel is directed to transmit the exhibit to Defendants on or before February 10, 2024. The exhibit shall remain sealed pending further Court order,” Judge Cannon wrote.
