I really wish cameras were allowed in some of these courtrooms. This would be great TV.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

He blames one of his "volunteers" for posting it but when he asked who specifically did it, no one will admit to it.

And he was only able to name 2 of his 6 supposed volunteers.

Seems like he'll at least get a full gag order. Wonder if the judge will revoke his bail completely.

Oh man I so want to see this. Courtroom footage of groveling Stone would be gold in Vic Berger's hands.

Stone is off the witness stand. His defense attorney called his action "indefensible." ABJ responds: "I agree with you there."

Judge seems a pretty great job in some ways. "You're a dick. Oh, you don't agree? Here, have some contempt of court time in jail."

The Roger Stone Defense fund needs more money if all they can afford is the clown he has now.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Federal prosecutors broke law in Jeffrey Epstein case, judge rules

Quote:
A judge ruled Thursday that federal prosecutors — among them, U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta — broke federal law when they signed a plea agreement with a wealthy, politically connected sex trafficker and concealed it from more than 30 of his underage victims.

U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra, in a 33-page opinion, said that the evidence he reviewed showed that Jeffrey Epstein had been operating an international sex operation in which he and others recruited underage girls — not only in Florida — but from overseas, in violation of federal law.

“Epstein used paid employees to find and bring minor girls to him.,’’ wrote Marra, who is based in Palm Beach County. “Epstein worked in concert with others to obtain minors not only for his own sexual gratification, but also for the sexual gratification of others.’’

Instead of prosecuting Epstein under federal sex trafficking laws, Acosta, then the U.S. attorney in Miami, helped negotiate a non-prosecution agreement that gave Epstein and his co-conspirators immunity from federal prosecution. Epstein, who lived in a Palm Beach mansion, was allowed to quietly plead guilty in state court to two prostitution charges and served just 13 months in the county jail. His accomplices, some of whom have never been identified, were never charged.

"Epstein, who lived in a Palm Beach mansion, was allowed to quietly plead guilty in state court to two prostitution charges and served just 13 months in the county jail. His accomplices, some of whom have never been identified, were never charged."



Not a lawyer, no idea what can happen now, even after reading this part:

"While the victims ultimately would like to see Epstein go to jail, the judge’s ruling stopped short of issuing a remedy or punishment. He gave the government and victims 15 days to confer with each other to come up with a resolution. It’s unclear what that resolution would be.

Edwards conceded that Epstein’s sentence isn’t likely to be overturned. He was released in 2009.

But victims’ rights advocates say that other charges can still be brought against Epstein if more victims come forward in other jurisdictions. There has been no statute of limitations for sex trafficking since 2002."

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

cant wait til they nail his ass in a new trial with new victims and he gets abused in prison alongside mr stone

i was looking up the crime victims rights act and it looks like there's no recourse re: charging acosta or the rest of the prosecutors with any sort of crime or overturning epstein's conviction/plea- the most they could do, *i think*, is suspend or terminate the prosecutors' employment if they were found to have violated the CVRA's provisions

I relate a lot to Stone. Random people wander in and out of my house at all hours as well. Some use my phone, some don't. I don't know their names.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Someone put a fire hose of sunshine up that judge's ass if he thinks "Hey victims and the government, why don't you two parties hash it out in the next two weeks" is going to be a smooth process
