Trump Lawyers Targeted by Dark Money Group

Original Article

Posted By: Garnet, 6/19/2023 1:44:21 AM

Among the unusual features of last week’s arraignment of former President Trump in Miami involved the difficulty he had finding a qualified attorney to represent him in the classified documents case brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith. The corporate media inevitably made much of this issue. The Washington Post, for example, quoted various anonymous sources who claimed that Trump’s reputation as a “challenging client” caused several prominent lawyers to turn him down. In reality, the problem resulted from an intimidation campaign by a radical pressure group called the 65 Project, whose explicit mission is to ruin any lawyer willing to represent Trump.

I realize the left will go into the gutter to get their way, but wouldn't the ABA have a voice in this group's effort to block people, in this case Trump, from hiring good lawyers? Is ethics important or is it not?

What an interesting dilemma for the legal profession. Where does a person turn when one cannot find competent legal representation? If there are any ethical lawyers (I know, I know…oxymoron) why aren’t they screaming at the top of their lungs about this? Yes, I know the answer, too.

So the top tier lawyers in our country do not believe that everyone is entitled to their day in court. Threaten members of 65 Project with the same tactics. Stop being such cowards.

Why have these people not been sued for conspiracy to deny the civil rights of the defendant (namely, the right to effective legal counsel)? This is gangster behavior.

My answer to #5 is that the ABA is a huge part of the problem. It is just another Democrat lawyers association pushing their destructive policies through lawfare. They are a huge problem here in Texas, too.

The Case Against Garland Is Growing 9 replies

On “Fox & Friends,” Speaker McCarthy yesterday launched a broadside against Attorney General Garland, and made it perfectly clear that the House was prepared to impeach the AG. Here’s what he said: “Yesterday, I laid out really clearly, by July 6th, because of the allegations from the IRS, because of the whistleblowers, and the DOJ…. Garland, what he is saying and what David Weiss is saying privately, are two different things. Without question, the case against Mr. Garland is growing almost on a daily basis. Seasoned IRS investigators-turned-whistleblowers were quite clear that the Department of Justice interfered in their tax investigation of Hunter Biden,

It's been nearly three weeks since former President Donald Trump announced that he had been indicted in the classified documents investigation. On June 8, the day of the announcement on Trump's Truth Social network, the former president's lead over top challenger Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was 30.3 points in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls. Today, Trump's lead over DeSantis is 30.6 points. A federal indictment, on top of a local prosecutor's indictment in New York City, seems not to have affected Trump's national poll numbers at all. By the old standards of politics, it makes no sense.

President Joe Biden is a self-described gaffe machine, but you wouldn’t always know that by reading the official White House transcripts of his speeches and remarks. Sometimes, the transcript throws in a [sic] when Biden misspeaks. Other times, the stenographer adds a bracketed correction to Biden’s error. And every once in a while, the White House just cuts out Biden’s bizarre word salads altogether.Here’s a slew of examples from official transcripts just this month, found on the website. “Last summer, I had the honor of bestowing the Presidential Meda- — Medal of Freemon [sic] — Freedom on distinguished Americans …” (June 16, 2023). “And I’m pleased we’re also joined by x-pay [sic]

Just when Joe Biden thought the Hunter business was behind him, new evidence is pulling him back in. This time it won’t be as easy to suppress as in 2020. House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer has forced into public the existence of a Federal Bureau of Investigation FD-1023 form detailing an informant’s claim that a Burisma executive paid $5 million each in bribes to then-Vice President Biden and his son. After the bureau begrudgingly let a few members of Congress look at the document, Sen. Chuck Grassley revealed the FBI had redacted the part about the executive saying he had 17 audio recordings of conversations with Joe and Hunter Biden.

Last week, a whistleblower gave us a flurry of revelations of Biden administration corruption, including interfering with the federal investigation of Hunter Biden as well as evidence that Joe Biden was directly involved in bribing foreign nationals.The recent allegations appear to prove definitively that Joe Biden, despite his repeated denials, was not only very much involved in Hunter’s shady foreign business deals but was also a key factor in them. In light of this, the White House appears to have subtly changed its longstanding narrative. You’ve no doubt heard Joe Biden deny having any involvement in Hunter Biden’s non-U.S. business dealings. “I have never

Something changed last week inside the Beltway that suggests the people who run the Democratic Party now realize President Biden’s tenure in office is not sustainable beyond 2024. The “tell” was not, however, the latest revelation by IRS whistleblowers about his corrupt administration. It was instead the sudden awakening of the White House press corps. The same “reporters” who snored through more than two years of preposterous claims by Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and her predecessor simultaneously woke up Friday. Correspondents from media outlets CNN, CBS, NBC, and even the New York Times aggressively questioned Jean-Pierre about the metastasizing Hunter Biden scandals.

This headline from the Daily Caller truly caught me by surprise this morning. Most people who read Hot Air and other conservative outlets or watch Fox News were already no doubt aware of the bombshell revelations from the infamous FBI FD-1023 form alleging that Joe Biden took a five million dollar bribe from a Burisma executive in Ukraine while he was the Vice President. But the story has gone virtually unmentioned anywhere else in the legacy media. (Based on their coverage, nothing happened anywhere else on the planet this week except for Donald Trump being indicted.) But somehow the information still seems to be seeping out

US grocery prices ticked up in May after dipping in March and April. Inflation in America continued to fall significantly, but rising prices at the supermarket is unwelcome news to those struggling to pay for food. From April to May, adjusted for seasonal swings, grocery prices got 0.1% more expensive, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index, a key measure of inflation. Menu items got 0.5% in that time. Overall, grocery prices were 5.8% more expensive in May than they were a year ago. Menu prices have risen 8.3% over the past year. Together, food prices jumped 6.7% throughout the year, once again outpacing overall annual inflation

Facebook Twitter “Because that’s where the money is.” That was the answer that Willie Sutton, an expert in his chosen field, gave when asked why he robbed banks. Maybe the Bidens, Joe and Hunter, should consider employing a kindred candor about their business activities in Romania, Ukraine and elsewhere back when Joe was Obama’s VP. So far, they have been disappointing on that score. Here’s the state of play: an FBI whistleblower revealed the existence of a complicated bribery scheme that allegedly funneled millions of dollars into the Bidens’ coffers via a network of at least twenty shell companies set up to launder the dough.

It was amazing to see Attorney General Merrick Garland’s appointed special counsel, Jack Smith, step in front of the cameras and say of the indictment of former President Donald Trump: “No one is above the law.” Which is to say, Jack Smith looked the American people in the eye and straight up lied. It was the stuff of a banana republic. Fact? Joe Biden, who did the same thing with classified documents as Donald Trump — and four times over — is not being indicted. He is above the law. Fact?

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) net favorability rating plunged to an all-time low after his first full month on the presidential campaign trail, a Civiqs poll found. In December, the Civiqs poll found that DeSantis’s net favorability rating was -1, with 46 percent having a favorable opinion of him compared to 47 percent unfavorable.

Rubio told NewsNation this week that he has spoken to people who have "firsthand knowledge, firsthand claims of certain things" involving UFOs. "Some are public figures," Rubio said.

Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said Wednesday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” that it would be a “disaster” if the Republican Party nominated former President Donald Trump in 2024 and “dangerous” if he wins, which would be possible. Discussing Trump Tuesday night at the Aspen Ideas Festival, former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said, “It’s really important for Democrats to take him seriously. There can be a tendency for people on the Democratic side to say, ‘Well, look, sure, the Republicans will nominee hm the Republicans are a mess but we’ll be able to beat him in a general.

Special Counsel Jack Smith was likely waiting on the Supreme Court's decision on the "independent state legislature theory" before deciding to proceed with charges against the former president over Jan. 6, a conservative former judge has said. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court shot down the controversial independent state legislature theory, which would have had the potential to radically change the way elections are run across the country. According to the fringe legal theory, legislatures have exclusive and near-absolute power in setting the rules of federal elections, without being challenged by state courts. But a majority of justices voted to reaffirm that state courts can curtail the actions

Former US President Donald Trump has sued the writer E Jean Carroll for defamation, alleging she falsely accused him of rape after a jury found he sexually abused her. Last month, the civil jury in New York found he sexually abused and defamed the columnist but did not rape her. Mr Trump's claim, filed on Tuesday, relates to comments Ms Carroll made on CNN a day after that verdict. When asked about Mr Trump's liability for rape, she said "oh yes he did". The claim is seeking a retraction of that comment as well as unspecified compensation and punitive damages.

He also condemned Biden for failing to mobilize to rescue Gonzalo Lira,

"It’s hard to tell, but he’s clearly losing the war in Iraq," Biden told a reporter outside the White House on Wednesday when asked "to what extent" Putin has been weakened by recent events in Russia including a reported attempt at a mercenary coup. "He's losing the war at home, and he has become a bit of a pariah around the world," Biden added.
