Trump attorney says New York attorney general is ‘"just not that bright"


 it is hard to believe this is dragging on and on, it seems as if the people are really supporting our fearless leader more and more

Politicians and bureaucrats are considered productive if they swarm the populace like a plague of locust, devouring all substance in their path and leaving a swath of destruction like a firestorm. The technical term is "bipartisanship".

Gag order lifted
Quote
A New York judge has lifted the gag order imposed on former President Donald Trump in his civil fraud trial stemming from state Attorney General Letitia James’ lawsuit against him and the Trump Organization.

Citing concerns over free speech, appeals court Judge David Friedman issued a stay on the order Thursday, which was put in place by Judge Arthur Engoran in October.

Quote
At Thursday's emergency hearing, Friedman questioned Engoron's authority to limit Trump's speech outside the courtroom, and argued gag orders were used more in criminal trials where there is a fear of swaying a jury. The ruling also applies to Trump's lawyers, who say they have no plans to inhibit the former president's First Amendment rights.

Trump wasted no time

Quote
Trump celebrated the ruling in a post on Truth Social, in which he railed against Engoran.

But wait, there's more

    3 days after Trump announced his 2024 candidacy, the Biden WH held a secret meeting with Nathan Wade.

    Who is Nathan Wade?

    Wade is the lead prosecutor in Georgia investigating Trump for Fani Willis.

Maybe even some on the left are troubled by the above

Quote
Fulton County, Georgia district attorney Fani Willis, who brought charges against former President Donald Trump on election interference, should step away from the case amid allegations brought against her of having an "improper" romantic relationship with a prosecutor, according to an Obama-appointed former U.S. attorney.

And predictably she's pulling the race card.
Anymore nowadays I take that as a sign they know they've been caught with their hand in the cookie jar.

And what about the reports that indicate both Willis and the BF were at the WH and possibly met with JB while there?

Was this the trial where the jury found him not guilty of rape, but guilty of insulting the woman who accused him of rape?

Also the one where the judge refused to hear evidence in favor of Trump and also today threatened to throw Trump's attorney in the klink.

Guilty of 'sexual abuse', which the judge clarified as forced digital penetration. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2023/07/19/trump-carroll-judge-rape/

Trump lawyer says defense just learned that E Jean Carroll judge was once 'mentor' to Carroll's lawyer. 'This issue is particularly concerning since Plaintiff’s other lead counsel, Shawn Crowley, served as Your Honor’s law clerk, and we were previously advised that Your Honor co-officiated her wedding.' https://storage.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.usco

Now do I expect anything being done to the judge who obviously had a huge conflict of interest? No
But a reversal could be up coming but we are living in clown world so I'm not holding my breath.

I also read that not only was Trump denied evidence submission, but the judge denied hearing Trump witnesses. This is going to be turned over on appeal, but the political damage is already done, which is pretty much how banana republic courts work.

In this instance, the damage is minimal IMO.  It is still January.  The appeal will be heard and maybe decided well before November.  Also, the media has been demonizing trump since 2016.  Anyone who changes their mind over this was already voting against him. 

I think Amber Heard and the Johnny Depp trial did a good job of undermining the power of accusations like this.  Anyone who has heard of Trump can look at that accuser and know that she wasn't the type of woman Trump was reputed to be interested in.  That is Bill Clinton's reputation.

"A secret Obama memo, the Presidential Information Technology Committee (PITC), regarding control of Presidential records could change everything in the DOJ’s politicized prosecution of Trump," the organization announced Tuesday on Twitter/X.

By executive fiat, Obama created the PITC following a 2014 Russian hack of the president's Executive Office computer network. The committee "includes representatives of the Departments of Defense and DHS, among others" and "established the President’s exclusive control over information resources and systems provided to the President," according to America First Legal.
