"Happy Mother’s Day to ALL, in particular the Mothers, Wives and Lovers of the Radical Left Fascists, Marxists, and Communists who are doing everything within their power to destroy and obliterate our once great Country.

I was watching a discussion on MSNBC and they pointed out something interesting. The book cooking that was done to hide the payoff to Stormy is a misdemeanor, but it needs to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. They probably will succeed in that. But if they do, the subsequent offense of election interference does not have to be proven to that same standard.

by Anonymousreply 37May 14, 2024 6:42 AM

Call me crazy, call me irresponsible, throw in undependable, too, but r37's post reinforces a question I've had for a while.

Why isn't Trump cutting a plea deal?

If anybody knows (and the mofo is right about this) that he could get by with any amount of proven or pleaded to criminal activity and not lose support, at least among his moronic supporters, it's him.

And, quite frankly, and damningly about voting Americans, I don't know that it would matter to stupid USA! USA Americans.

That way Trump, that gelatinous, offensive, criminal, fetid agglomeration of shit cells can get out on the campaign trail and spew his nonsense.

After all, he's claiming the trial is preventing him from doing that.

Of course, even if Trump wanted to cut a plea deal he'd have to risk whatever sentence is issued by Judge Merchan.

by Anonymousreply 38May 14, 2024 12:30 PM

Plea deal = almost immediate prison sentence and no grounds for appeal

by Anonymousreply 39May 14, 2024 12:36 PM

I'm not as sure as you are about that, ElderLez.

True, I don't know enough about whether the prosecutor can offer a reduced charge of misdemeanors, if Trump would agree to plead.

As for a sentence, I think if Trump is found guilty by the jury on one or more charges, then yes, at sentencing, Judge Merchan would order some jail time, but not sure about actual jail time if Trump would plead to misdemeanors or even some felonies.

Merchan might order stayed jail time if Trump pleaded out. Given that Michael Cohen sat actual jail time for acts that were directly connected to these charges, I don't think Merchan would not order some form of jail time for Trump, even if it's stayed.

The fact this election is even close, that the media so easily plays with fire, that billionaires can easily cause huge disruptions to our lives, that voters are so lazy needing coddling and conjoling to vote, that 90 years of failed conservative economic policy ( when they're in charge) isn't enough for voters to vote D, we'd need a D supermajority to stack the SC to have any hope of turning this around.

Federal prosecutors on Tuesday requested the judge overseeing ex-Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon's criminal contempt of Congress case to order that he begin his four-month prison sentence, after an appeals court last week upheld his conviction.

Prosecutors said there is no legal basis for Judge Carl Nichols to continue the stay on Bannon serving his sentence after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals' conclusive ruling that rejected the basis for Bannon's appeal on all grounds.

"Consequently, there is no longer a 'substantial question of law that is likely to result in a reversal or an order for a new trial,'" prosecutors wrote in their filing Tuesday.

It's not immediately clear when Nichols will rule on the request.

"I'm shocked they want to silence the voice of MAGA," Bannon told ABC News in regards to Tuesday's news...

I still don't understand why the prosecution didn't call Karen Macdougall to testify. It's the same deal as Stormy, just a more convoluted route. It would have reinforced Stormy's sometimes wobbly narrative.

Ultimately David Pecker decided not to take payment from Trump, for reasons known only to him.

I don't know if it would have persuaded the jury to convict him, but a parade of bimbos might have served the purpose of swaying undecided voters in November. And it certainly would have been entertaining for us.

[bold]Man convicted of attacking ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband with a hammer sentenced to 30 years[/bold]

The man convicted of attempting to kidnap then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and attacking her husband with a hammer was sentenced Friday to 30 years in prison.

Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley handed down the sentence for David DePape, 44, whom jurors found guilty last November of attempted kidnapping of a federal official and assault on the immediate family member of a federal official. Prosecutors had asked for a 40-year prison term.

DePape was given 20 years for one count and 30 years for another count. The sentences will run concurrently. He was also given credit for the 18 months that he's been in custody.

DePape stood silently as Judge Corley handed the sentence and looked down at times. His public defense attorneys had asked the judge to sentence him to 14 years, pointing out that he was going through a difficult time in his life and had no prior criminal history.

Corley said she took into account when giving DePape’s sentence the fact that he broke into the home of a public official, an unprecedented act in the history of the country.

“He actually went to the home, that is completely, completely unprecedented,” she said.

Before sentencing, Christine Pelosi read victim statements on behalf of her father and mother, explaining how the violent attack changed their lives...

[bold]'Partygoers started screaming': Giuliani served with indictment during his birthday party[/bold]

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani was officially served with a felony indictment on Friday night for allegedly interfering in Arizona's 2020 presidential election. Officials with the office of Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes served Giuliani in front of nearly 100 guests at his 80th birthday celebration in the Palm Beach, Florida area.

The New York Post reported early Saturday morning that the former personal attorney to Donald Trump was in high spirits when he was served around 11 PM on Friday at the Lake Clarke Shores home of GOP consultant Caroline Wren. Prior to being served with felony indictment paperwork, Giuliani reportedly "belted" the song "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra in front of what the Post said was between 80 and 100 guests. Some of the more high-profile attendees of the party were longtime Trump aide Roger Stone and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

"Some partygoers started screaming and one woman even cried as Giuliani was served," the Post's Lydia Moynihan wrote...

[bold]We asked ChatGPT to be a juror in Donald Trump's hush-money trial. It said it would find him guilty.[/bold]

It will be a jury of 12 ordinary New Yorkers that will decide the fate of former President Donald Trump in his ongoing Manhattan hush-money trial.

Unless Trump decides to testify, the trial is nearly over. Michael Cohen, the trial's key witness, is scheduled to wrap up his testimony on Monday, and the judge told lawyers to prepare for closing arguments on Tuesday. Deliberations could begin as soon as Thursday.

Prosecutors have brought 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, alleging Trump illegally disguised hush-money payments paid to Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election. A guilty verdict comes with a sentence of up to four years, though experts expect the former president would see no jail time...

...Gemini, ChatGPT, and Perplexity were prompted to imagine they were an ordinary Manhattan resident on the jury, responsible for evaluating the evidence in the trial. Each was asked to review the transcript and base their answer on the evidence and arguments presented. They were told to "choose now whether you would find him guilty or not guilty."

Gemini, Google's AI chatbot, said it "was still learning" how to answer the question.

But OpenAI's ChatGPT and Perplexity weighed in — and both said they'd find Trump guilty.

"I would vote guilty on the charges of falsifying business records," Perplexity responded definitively. "The prosecution has provided credible and significant evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump engaged in the alleged conduct."

ChatGPT initially hesitated to give a definitive answer, saying its decision "would depend heavily on the credibility of the witnesses and the clarity of the documentary evidence."

But after a follow-up question prompted it to "decide now," OpenAI's bot said its "decision would be to find Trump guilty based on the evidence provided in the transcripts."

[bold]Trump at NRA convention floats a three-term presidency[/bold]

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday floated the idea of a third term if he wins in November.

“You know, FDR 16 years — almost 16 years — he was four terms. I don’t know, are we going to be considered three-term? Or two-term?” Trump quipped at the National Rifle Association annual meeting, speaking before a crowd of gun rights supporters.

Some in the crowd shouted in response: “Three.”

It’s not the first time Trump has mentioned extending his stay in the White House, an idea he suggested while on the campaign trail in 2020. His latest remarks provide more fodder for the Biden campaign, which seized on the comments as it tries to paint Trump as a threat to democracy and institutional norms.

But Trump has more recently shut down the proposition of seeking a third term, which is barred by the Constitution. And he told Time magazine in an April interview that he wouldn’t be in favor of challenging the 22nd Amendment:

“I wouldn’t be in favor of it at all. I intend to serve four years and do a great job. And I want to bring our country back. I want to put it back on the right track. Our country is going down. We’re a failing nation right now. We’re a nation in turmoil,” he said.

During a meandering speech in Dallas, Trump addressed thousands of gun rights supporters on Saturday. The former president spoke about guns and the Second Amendment, but also tackled immigration, foreign policy, the economy and abortion. He at one point slammed Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as “radical left,” while continuing his attacks on Biden and CNN about the debates...

2/...This is key for a generation who doesn't fully know Biden's backstory thanks to their media diet and age [want to feel old: they were born *after* 9/11!].

3/ On Gaza, Biden spelled out his vision clearly - one that aligns with what young people want, even if they haven't necessarily heard it directly from him before (see above on media silos and disinfo). Minor protests, but mostly a warm welcome. Apparently there were chants of "4 more years!" at the end, per a friend who was there. 4/The campaign has more work to close the gap between who Biden is and who young people thing he is, and how he's delivered for Black/Brown communities.

Next 6 months are crucial for sharpening that contrast with Trump AND persuading voters to ditch the couch.

Trump hired Red Finch for $50K to try & rig a CNBC poll of the most influential businessmen of the last 50 years because he wanted to be #1. CNBC later canceled the poll & he refused to pay. Cohen paid them out of pocket, but only $20K. He later got Trump to reimburse him $50k.

Trump constantly lied that the NY trial was contrived by crooked witch-hunter sleepy Joe Biden. Yet given the chance to speak for himself in open court, Trump declined. The world was waiting, but no great slam-dunk corrections emerged from the stable genius.

It's greatly to be hoped that Trump's mysterious uncharacteristic silence is extensively mocked. At very best, the insulted Biden will allude to it with a killer aside to get under Trump's baby-thin skin.

A candidate for president of the United States is on trial for sending a hush money payment to a porn star to avoid a sex scandal during his 2016 campaign, and then fraudulently disguising those payments in violation of the law. He is also charged with conspiring to overturn the election. He is also charged with stealing classified information. And a jury has already found him liable for rape in a civil court. And yet, in this Republican-controlled House, it's okay to talk about the trial but you have to call it a sham."

Trump seems convinced that if he wins another four years in the White House, state prosecutors will still be waiting for him on the other side of his term — ready to put him on trial, or even in prison, just as they are now.

To avoid such risks, the former and perhaps future president of the United States wants Congress to create a very specific insurance policy that would help keep him out of prison forever. Trump has spoken to several GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill, attorneys, and other associates about the possibility of Republicans passing legislation in a second Trump term that would shield former presidents (i.e. Trump) from non-federal prosecutions.

The the list at R322 of Biden accomplishments I would like to add the release of Trevor Reed a former Marine who was imprisoned by Putin while Trump was President along with Paul Whelan. Trump didn't life a finger to get either man released, Putin probably expected Trump to ask for their release, probably napped them so he could release them to his good buddy Trump and make Trump look like a great negotiator but since Trump didn't care about either man he never asked.

Wow! I know that R340 won't be able to see this post, but s(he) could not be more mistaken. I may not be besotted with Joe Biden (although I am a committed Biden voter & even contributor), but I passionately hate Donald Trump. And I have the DL receipts to prove it. But yes, I'm a realist & the idea of a Democratic Senate Super Majority is sheer lunacy when you consider all the small ruby red states whose population combined is a mere fraction of California.

Trump's Memorial Day message to the nation is characteristically inspiring in its gratitude to the military veterans who've given their lives for our country:

“Happy Memorial Day to All, including the Human Scum that is working so hard to destroy our Once Great Country, & to the Radical Left, Trump Hating Federal Judge in New York that presided over, get this, TWO separate trials, that awarded a woman, who I never met before (a quick handshake at a celebrity event, 25 years ago, doesn’t count!), 91 MILLION DOLLARS for ‘DEFAMATION.’

Jarvanka was the VP last time- not Prance- but so far it looks like they're no longer on board. Trump doesn't want to be President, so he will look for a VP to do the heavy lifting while he goes golfing.

[quote] Former president Donald Trump promised to crush pro-Palestinian protests on college campuses, telling a roomful of donors — a group that he joked included “98 percent of my Jewish friends” — that he would expel student demonstrators from the United States, according to participants in the roundtable event with him in New York.

[quote] “One thing I do is, any student that protests, I throw them out of the country. You know, there are a lot of foreign students. As soon as they hear that, they’re going to behave,” Trump said on May 14, according to donors at the event.

On Fox News's Special Report - its hour of so-called straight reporting - which I force myself to watch, senior political analyst (& former anchor) Britt Hume said, in his trademark sneering fashion, the Democrats in this campaign will be trying to make voters think Jan. 6 was about something that happened in "your house." I shouted back, "But it was in our house." The House of Representatives, that is.

[bold]Judge Cannon rejects request for gag order against Donald Trump in classified docs case[/bold]

Federal Judge Aileen Cannon on Tuesday rejected special counsel Jack Smith’s request for a gag order against Donald Trump in the classified documents case, saying that prosecutors’ request was “wholly lacking in substance and professional courtesy.”

This story is breaking and will be updated.

@ R363 love seeing and hearing De Niro's speech rhythms and pauses as relished in so many movies, now deployed for a crucial cause. That exasperation bordering rage all the sane feel, just about kept in check. Where such an icon leads, may many luminaries follow.

Smith knew she would do this. Now he goes over her head and asks for it.

Dump has proven, IN WRITING, that he has no qualms about threatening the FBI or the local police with violence from his cult if they carry out their job duties.

So there is no reason for this rancid cunt to deny the gag order. She will get cunt punted again. At some point in time the 11th circuit will get tired of her asshattery and jerk her off the case or reprimand her. And it will be delicious.

She needs to be prosecuted for aiding and abetting then fucking deported.
