Is there nothing that Epstein and his bosom buddy in crime Clinton won't do to harm America.
 
2022-08-11 11:03:30 AM  
I don't care. Everybody deserves a competent defense attorney. Yes, even the scummiest defendants possible.
 
2022-08-11 11:20:13 AM  
I'm not quite sure how bad it's going to get in this thread, but we will definitely see some water being carried for Epstein by very impressionable people.

This post will be funnied by nonce-enablers.

So what?

What does that have to do with the evidence presented to him to approve the warrant?

Nothing?

Then, I don't care.

That's been one of my favorite parts of this past week. Almost every smackdown was administered by someone Trump appointed. Surprise, asshole, once they're on the bench they don't owe you shiat.
 
2022-08-11 11:40:15 AM  
That the link! It's definitive! The raid on mar-a-lago was carried out by Clinton operatives embedded dep within the federal government to retrieve pictures Trump has proving that Bill and Hillary were trafficking kids through Pizza shops in order to supply Epstein with underage sex services on a privately owned Caribbean island!

Finally justice will be served!

So much this. Your defense attorney is supposed to stand by you when the entire world is against you. Even the lowest criminal scum deserves fair legal representation.

The DOJ needs to unseal the warrant or somebody is going to end up dead. Agolf Twittler's lawyers already have the warrant, it is not like unsealing it will change the outcome. It will show the Nat-Cs, Y'all KKKayda, and the MAGA C.H.U.D.s the scope of Trumps crime and why the warrant was issued and approved.

Nope. He's psychologically incapable of admitting he was wrong or not "perfect". Just unseal it and let the world see. Right now they are letting the Fascist propagandist run amok, which only makes the Trump Cult even more dangerous.

Release the warrant? Trump could confess and it wouldn't make a goddamn difference, they would still think it's lies and he's being persecuted.

I wouldn't doubt if unsealing it is a matter of national security... as in the stuff described in there is bad enough... much less what couldn't be openly described in the warrant except maybe by document number.

I agree, but lies wither in the light of day. It would make it a lot harder for public figures and politicians to continue to howl "witch hunt!" . The base...yeah, they're never coming back to reality and we'll have about 80 years of trouble coming from them ..

This. Give me one example where when presented with facts that the cult said "ok, you're right".  There's no fact they can't turn into a lie becuase they don't abide by things like science, logic, or truth.

Yup, which is why we need better funding of public defenders offices so that when someone is found guilty you have confidence that they are guilty.

Apparently not...at least not directly.


The federal magistrate judge who signed off on the warrant that allowed federal agents to search former President Donald....

Magistrate judges are not appointed by the president but instead are appointed by district judges

RTFA.  He defended a pilot, Epstein's scheduler, and a victim.  Technically correct that they are linked to Epstein but hardly the Saul Goodman the headlines are making him out to be.
 
2022-08-11 11:54:59 AM  
Remember when the UK kept launching independent inquiries into persistent allegations of child abuse by highly placed police officials and judges and their friends?

And remember how every time one got remotely close to uncovering something, it was de-railed by highly placed police officials and judges and their friends?

Like that, but less British.

He worked as a federal prosecutor until Jan. 1, 2008, when a day later he became a defense attorney representing employees of Epstein, according to a 2018 story by the Miami Herald. According to the Herald, the employees included pilots for Epstein, his scheduler and a woman who had been described by some of Epstein's victims as his sex slave.

Somebody here wrote that he was representing Epstein associates who had been granted immunity in order to testify against Epstein. I have no idea if that's actually true, as the Miami Herald link is paywalled and most of what I can find via google are various reiterations of the same current Politico story.

How exactly did you get that take from what I posted?  All I said was not releasing the warrant's contents is letting the propagandists run free and it needs to be checked. I struggling to understand why so many of you have seemed to have thrown in the towel.

No ones throwing in the towel. We're taking issue with your assumption that if the FBI unseals the warrant that any of the GQP rhetoric is going to stop. They invent new conspiracy theories to show how Donald Trump is doing the best for the country and the government is persecuting him for it. 
If Donald Trump is really being persecuted as the cult is saying then Donald Trump should show the warrants and what was taken to show how he is being persecuted.

It seems as if any random asshole anywhere can accuse any Democrat of anything and the media will run with it, but in order to accuse a Republican of something you have to submit your resume to Fox News so they can somehow tangentially connect you to Hillary or Hunter Biden.

I understand where you are coming from, but we all know the Trump camp isnt going to do that. Is the solution to do nothing because Trump wont do anything? What I'm saying is Trump is coming out on top right now on this. A few weeks ago it looked like he was all but done, there was a shift, even in the base, but now he's right back and then some over this.

Someone was trying to tell me the stupidity behind the Cracker Barrel impossible sausage outrage was that there was a legitimate political effort to ban meat to protect the environment. I replied that the only people I have heard that from were extremist nut jobs and never from a fact based media news source.

She responded with a Politico article about a left wing nut job in Spain proposing banning meat and being told he was stupid and to shut up by the King or PM or something. I had to explain that Politico was not exactly a bastion of journalistic integrity, and the story was about an extremist nut job.

"Politico" is a "stopped reading there" key word.

That is explicitly forbidden. Defense attorneys are permitted to see it and discuss it with the client, but public exposure will lead to draconian sanctions pretty much instantly.

How do they keep on dropping Epstein's name like that's some kinda gotchya?!

Do they know that Drumpf was pals with him too?  How can they vilify EVERYONE involved with that, but NEVER mention Drumpf?

It really is an amazement to me how easily they cherry pick this stuff.
