MORE on fallout of Fischer and DOJ's plans to try to make 1512c2 stick to keep J6ers in jail and maintain the charge despite SCOTUS stating evidence impairment element must be present.

DOJ has not made that allegation in any indictment for 3 1/2 years but the crooks at the department are working on it now.

Judge Amit Mehta (I will get to him in a moment) just continued the already delayed sentencing of Oath Keeper Donovan Crowl. Here is what Matthew Graves' office told Mehta--basically, give us a month or so to come up with some garbage excuse to sustain 1512c2 count especially in high profile cases like Proud Boys:Image
When I am asked which judges should first be impeached (in an ideal world), Mehta is often in my top 4.


Among other reasons, he permitted the 1512c2 charge to go forward among the greatest number of J6 defendants.

This is from Dec 2021--he admits none of the indictments against the Oath Keepers involved evidence impairment, the new standard established by SCOTUS.

Nonetheless, Mehta denied motions to dismiss based on DOJ's intentional misreading of 1512c2Image
More from Judge Mehta (Obama appointee).

What he wrote here in Dec 2021 is in direct conflict with how SCOTUS just ruled in Fischer.

So what does Mehta--and 14 of his DC district court judges who also consented to DOJ's now unlawful use of 1512c2--do now?

Apologize to defendants? Vacate their convictions and sentences? Give them back years that some lost languishing in prison as innocent men and women? Remove the terror enhancement he applied in 1512c2 convictions?Image
DOJ used 1512c2 to punish political activity, full stop.

Read more from Mehta and consider all the recent demonstrations in DC including when protesters "stormed" buildings, assaulted police, disrupted congressional hearings/meetings, and even confronted lawmakers.

350+ J6ers--no Democrat protesters.Image

BREAKING: Judge Cannon just granted Trump's motion to pause some deadlines in FLA doc case to consider SCOTUS' immunity opinion and potential impact on the case. Trump's lawyers filed the motion yesterdayImage
As expected, Team Trump notes Justice Thomas' concurring opinion suggesting Smith's appointment is unconstitutional.

Trump already has pending motion to dismiss case based on unlawful appointment of special counsel. It was debated at a hearing last month. Image
Trump again raises Biden's inappropriate remarks after SCOTUS opinion as proof the White House in interfering in the case.

Trump also accuses DOJ of recently leaking info to media--something Judge Cannon admonished special counsel about when she appointed a special master in 9/22. I don't think she will be too happy about this.Image

NEW: Judge Cannon just filed another banger of an order related to FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago and the former chief judge of DC court, the wretched Beryl Howell, decision to pierce attorney-client privilege that forced Trump's lawyer to turn over his records to Jack Smith in the documents case.

First, Cannon will hold a hearing into whether the search warrant was overly vague and whether agents were properly instructed as to the records they were authorized to seize.

This came up during the hearing on Tuesday. At issue are the general terms in the "property to be seized" attachment B. (On the right)

Also, were FBI agents fully briefed before the raid as to the different category of records involved?

Part of her order on the left.Image
Second--and this is huge and an issue I've covered in the past but haven't been able to update yet--Cannon is taking on Howell's clearly political ruling to pierce atty-client privilege amid alleged proof that Trump's lawyer, Evan Corcoran, was used to advance a crime committed by his client.

Jack Smith sought the piercing of privilege just weeks after being appointed special counsel.

Howell, an Obama appointee who makes her contempt for Trump well known, was only too happy to oblige. Corcoran then had to testify before the DC grand jury and produce all of his notes including recordings.

Cannon wants the full record behind Howell's decision and to hold a hearing related to the process. She has made several public comments expressing her frustration that most of the DOJ's investigation in the docs case occurred in DC rather than southern Florida.

Getting favorable rulings by Howell is why.

And the DC court is still concealing the records including GJ transcripts.Image
Cannon held a sealed hearing Tuesday morning on Trump's motion to suppress evidence obtained via Howell's order. Apparently it did not go well.

It appears Smith's team--Jay Bratt and David Harbach--vehemently opposed a public hearing on the crime-fraud exception ruling.

One reason? Smith doesn't want his witnesses in the matter (everything conducted behind closed doors and the docket sealed) to endure cross examination and potentially perjure themselves before trial.Image

In advance of Monday’s hearing on Jack Smith’s latest proposed partial gag order on Trump, the special counsel last night filed another hyperbolic brief filled with unsubstantiated claims of bodily threats to law enforcement in docs case.

Note how Smith says “this Court.” He thinks Cannon won’t know about the similar gag order he sought (and received) from Judge Chutkan in DC.

In that proposal, he asked Chutkan to ban Trump from publicly criticizing HIM and others in special counsel’s office.

Chutkan granted—DC appellate court later reversed the part of her order covering Jack Smith, basically saying he’s a public official and should be able to take some criticism lolImage
Jack Smith used this same incident—fatal shooting of an Ohio man who allegedly tried to “attack” an FBI office a few days after MAL raid—in his gag order request in DC.

Like then, Smith now overlooks the fact that Ricky Shiffer was under FBI investigation for Jan 6:
As I explain here, Smith’s gag order is an attempt to cover up the reckless, sloppy, dirty FBI docs investigation and dangerous raid of MAL.

Can’t wait to hear what Judge Cannon has to say on Monday…

Hey guys remember this story from several days ago.

Well....you'll never guess what happened!

Or actually...you probably will guess.Image
Another fed trap. This time, a man who appears to be a loner in Arizona who takes care of an 82-year-old man and goes to gun shows.

Set up by another seasoned FBI informant (CHS) Image
It's hard to think in this day and age that anyone would be set up by the feds at a gun show but in covering some of these entrapment stories you see how lonely, gullible, and occasionally unstable people (not saying this individual is) fall for their tricks:

With new Pelosi “I take responsibility” clip, let’s revisit the transcript of Jamie Fleet, who was a senior advisor to Pelosi reporting directly to her chief of staff and served on staff of House Adm committee.

He told J6 committee he and others started planning for “contingencies” for January 6 IN THE SUMMER OF 2020:Image
On Jan 5, Fleet held a meeting with Zoe Lofgren, Pelosi’s handpicked chair of House Adm committee, Pelosi’s sergeant at arms Paul Irving, and Chief Sund.

We are to believe the concerns discussed related to J6 were never shared with Pelosi? Image
Irving, Fleet, and Pelosi COS Terry McCullough—who is the other individual in the “I take responsibility” clip—participate in a call the night of Jan 5.

Fleet then claims he didn’t tell Pelosi about security concerns and didn’t know if McCullough told her, either.

Even committee investigators appear incredulous at that claimImage

Trump’s lawyers just filed a motion to dismiss docs case based on mishandling of records during and after the MAL raid. The motion is the latest filing to detail malfeasance related to the unprecedented raid.

My latest for ⁦@RCInvestigates⁩ realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2024/…
FBI agents, armed and authorized to use lethal force, didn’t even follow their own plan. Both privileged and alleged “classified” papers were sloppily handled despite DOJ’s claims the files posed a national security threat.

Agents were more concerned with rummaging thru Mrs. Trump’s private suite and taking doctored photos for the media than carefully preserving evidence.

Main DOJ ran the show—Jay Bratt pushed to pursue a warrant in May 2022, a few months after NARA allegedly found papers with classified markings in boxes Trump’s team gave them.
You won't see this covered by the J6 media and/or swishy Weissmann-types demanding the recusal of Judge Cannon for messing up docs case.

Jack Smith has intentionally misled the defense and the judge about the condition of boxes/papers taken during MAL raid for over a year--in fact, Jay Bratt flat out lied to Cannon during April hearing when he told her the sequence of the files in the boxes were in original condition except for the removal of classified records.

Smith had to correct Bratt's claims in a minor footnote then attempted to blame the special master--which Cannon appointed in 2022--for disruption of evidence.

Turns out that was a lie, too. Agents did not keep files in order and actually took so-called "secret" records and put them on top of boxes.
