(The Raw Story)   Anonymous witness who testified for the Mueller grand jury tells NYT Trump won't get a fair shake because there aren't enough white people on the jury. Calm down. He probably has at least one black friend, so it's ok   ( rawstory.com) divider line

Wait a second... Washington D.C. is mostly black? Get the f*ck out of here.

I saw DC cab. I know that ain't true!
 
2018-01-02 04:12:18 PM  
Trump will be fine. He loves the blacks!
 
2018-01-02 04:20:41 PM  
It's not that there weren't any white people-- just no white males.

Which is bad. Because we all know how tough white males have it already.

Someone doesn't understand how grand juries work. It's not about giving a fair shake; it's about only allowing the prosecutor to indict the ham sandwich if the prosecutor can show that the sandwich has mayo.

The fair shake comes in with the petit jury at the criminal trial.

This witness basically just said 'yup, the president is a racist.'

No subby, he has a Black Secretary.  The "Urban" one.

And anyway, what do those grand jurors have to lose?

""The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally," the source told Johnson. "Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley." "

Yeah, I remember that massive amount of black support Bernie Sanders had, you stupid witness.

And it's not like they need to necessarily be a jury of his peers.  They just need to be 25 people who the government didn't object to.

Much like Mueller's team, Trumpers believe that the only person capable of investigating/judging Trump is Trump himself. Anyone else is a deep state liberal RINO cuck who is only out to get Trump.

Black people saved this county just a few short weeks ago in Alabama (not a football thing).

I'm confident they can do it again.

Goooo black people!

/Seriously. Save us from ourselves.
//The term "colored" for black people fell out of favor some time ago. But, I think it works for Trump and Boehner (the Weeping Cheetoh) and even Romney when he went on Mexican TV. Stupid coloreds.

The source explained that 11 out of the 20 jurors were black, while adding that two of the jurors were wearing "peace" t-shirts.

Wait, I thought Trump was the Peace Candidate and Killery Clinton was a vicious warmonger?

Always keep your lies simple.  It's the little details like that which expose you as utterly full of shiat.

Who the fark has worn a peace symbol shirt since the 70's?

Another data point that proves Republicans (I assume the asshole they're quoting is a Republican) believe that only white males are people.

The rest of us can just go fark ourselves, as far as they're concerned.

Every complaint that comes out of the mouth of a Republican is basically a regurgitation of bullshiat white grievances.

They are the whiniest, stupidest people on the face of the farking earth. And also a bunch of farking racists. Some of us knew that already, but apparently some here on Fark are still unclear on it. Or pretending to be, more like it.

REVERSE RACISM!!!!11!!
 
2018-01-02 05:05:01 PM  
So, conservative idiot says unsubstantiated bullshiat to play into Republican stigginit fantasies and to keep up the narrative turning a real Russian attack into a mere partisan issue?

Must be a day.

"They also aren't nearly rich enough to be a jury of Trump's peers.  How can I tell? Just look at them!"

Democrats (and Crooked Hillary) hijacked Mueller grand jury to set up Trump.  Sad.

Well, the defense should have objected during Grand Jury selection.

/That's the joke

That's what the Fake News wants you to believe.

I can see it now.

"Mr. Trump was voted in by a predominately white voting base. As a result, if he is to truly be tried by a jury of his peers then we need to get more billionaries and poor white men on this jury panel. Then we'll see if he's REALLY guilty."
 
2018-01-02 05:09:49 PM  
Only while men can fairly judge a white man, but don't you dare call me racist or sexist.
 
2018-01-02 05:09:54 PM  
Are these people not under some sort of gag order? Just curious
 
2018-01-02 05:10:55 PM

More or less this.

Bernie rallies and BLM rallies don't have much in common. Though I suppose to a right wing nutcase, they're similar.
 
2018-01-02 05:11:38 PM  
Wait, hold up...I heard that the Mueller probe was only pretending to investigate 45 so that he could secretly investigate Clinton and Obama and is going to indict them ANY MINUTE??

2018-01-02 05:12:09 PM  
Oh that's nothing. The majority of Mueller's investigators were Hillary supporters, so there's that. A fair shake wasn't in the cards from the start.
 
2018-01-02 05:12:14 PM  
As long as any Mexican recuses himself from participating in the grand jury, Trump should be satisfied with its makeup.

/couldn't care less if Trump is satisfied with the grand jury's members
 
2018-01-02 05:12:20 PM  
So, what reason do non-whites have to not give Trump a fair shake?

/obvious answer is obvious, but let's ask the deplorables.
 
2018-01-02 05:12:56 PM  
Those awful blacks. Always blacking like a bunch of blacking blacks.  They'll black anything, anytime they're given the chance to black.  And don't even get me started on the blackness.  How can prejudiced people like them be trusted?

Do you believe that someone can only get a fair shake if their investigators hold the same political views?  Because I got news about this investigation into an incident in Libya you might want to know about...

Bernie is a socialist, and blacks want everything for free.

This smells a lot like Jury tampering.
A witness (let's say Paul Manafort) very publicly states the G.J. is tainted..
Is the intent here to prejudice potential jurors against the prosecution

This smells a lot like Jury tampering.
 
2018-01-02 05:16:15 PM  
The "unnamed witness" sounds like a witness for the defense..meaning he doesn't have one. I'm betting it was Jr.
 
2018-01-02 05:16:20 PM  
Well, that's not racist at all.

So why does it matter?
