PS how many indictments for voting fraud ????? Grand Juries impaneled for the 2020 election?

50k and counting. about 800 grand juries active on this and trafficking issues and a new set recently impaneled for CV19 pandemic and vaccine fraud as crimes against humanity. No clear numbers circulating about as of yet, One unconfirmed number of Apr-May indictments on the 3 issues (elec. fraud+treason, trafficking,  CV19) is near 60k. Don't know to believe it or not, no numbers for impaneled juries on this large year's worth of indictments So I don't really know and expect to find that it is an exaggerated number or relates to a longer time interval. 

Will have to wait and see how those turn out. 

If Trump's team is floating indications of anxiety over the NY indictment activity, it is likely to be an intentional diversionary tactic. I am going to guess that Trump and his team are bemused as they watch the NYC legal establishment incriminate themselves on live video streams shared by DIA, NSA, Spaceforce and JAG corps.

Poor @notsonice the least of the original sock puppet accounts. No one cares, no one listens, no one likes. Just a sad, pathetic existence. Can't deal with reality, can't speak for itself, just waiting on the puppet strings. Praying for a distraction. Trying to create one here

Meanwhile back on topic. You're going to need more lawyers, Trump might need one.

The only thing the DOJ publishes about sealed indictments is their number and location by state. Access is restricted till the cases are active in court. You need Federal Bar membership to access the database to glean more detail, which is not usually available for sealed indictments.

You can look up the count.

I am not paid. Investigating this is part of all investor's  and adviser's due diligence.  I suggest you let go of your CIA controlled mass media and get actual information.

Trump can keep babbling about the election, he should be focused on the NY Grand Jury. Hope he enjoys stripes. Just keep in mind 90 to 95 percent of grand juries vote to indict when presented criminal activity and all it takes is a simple majority to indict. Once again NY Grand Jury? hope he likes stripes.

New grand jury seated for next stage of Trump investigation

By MICHAEL R. SISAKan hour ago

NEW YORK (AP) — New York prosecutors have convened a special grand jury to consider evidence in a criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump’s business dealings, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The development signals that the Manhattan district attorney’s office was moving toward seeking charges as a result of its two-year investigation, which included a lengthy legal battle to obtain Trump’s tax records.

The person familiar with the matter was not authorized to speak publicly and did so on condition of anonymity. The news was first reported by The Washington Post.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. is conducting a wide-ranging investigation into a variety of matters such as hush-money payments paid to women on Trump’s behalf, property valuations and employee compensation.

The Democratic prosecutor has been using an investigative grand jury through the course of his probe to issue subpoenas and obtain documents. That panel kept working while other grand juries and court activities were shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The investigation includes scrutiny of Trump’s relationship with his lenders; a land donation he made to qualify for an income tax deduction; and tax write-offs his company claimed on millions of dollars in consulting fees it paid.

The new grand jury could eventually be asked to consider returning indictments. While working on that case, it also will be hearing other matters. The Post reported that the grand jury will meet three days a week for six months.

Trump contends the investigation is a “witch hunt.”

“This is purely political, and an affront to the almost 75 million voters who supported me in the Presidential Election, and it’s being driven by highly partisan Democrat prosecutors,” Trump said in a statement.

Vance’s office declined to comment.

The new grand jury is the latest sign of increasing momentum in the criminal investigation into the Republican ex-president and his company, the Trump Organization.

Attorney General Letitia James said last week that she assigned two lawyers to work with Vance’s office on the probe after her civil investigation into

James, a Democrat, said her office also is continuing its civil investigation into Trump. She did not say what prompted her office to expand its investigation into a criminal probe.

In recent months, Vance hired former mafia prosecutor Mark Pomerantz to help run the investigation and has been interviewing witnesses, including Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Vance declined to run for reelection and will leave office at the end of the year, meaning the Trump case is likely to pass to his successor in some form. An election next month is all but certain to determine who that will be.

Trump said in a statement last week that he’s being “unfairly attacked and abused by a corrupt political system.” He contends the investigations are part of a Democratic plot to silence his voters and block him from running for president again.

In February, the U.S. Supreme Court buoyed Vance’s investigation by clearing the way for the prosecutor to enforce a subpoena on Trump’s accounting firm and obtain eight years of tax returns and related documents for the former president, the Trump Organization and other Trump entities.

The documents are protected by grand jury secrecy rules and are not expected to be made public.

Vance’s investigation has appeared to focus in recent weeks on Trump’s longtime finance chief, Allen Weisselberg. His former daughter-in-law, Jen Weisselberg, is cooperating with both inquiries.

She’s given investigators reams of tax records and other documents as they look into whether some Trump employees were given off-the-books compensation, such as apartments or school tuition.

Allen Weisselberg was subpoenaed in James’ civil investigation and testified twice last year. His lawyer declined to comment when asked Tuesday if he had been subpoenaed to testify before the new grand jury.

A message seeking comment was left with Jen Weisselberg’s lawyer.

Trump evolved into a criminal matter.

 

 

Recognizing that there's a chance the causes we're devoted to will prove to be lost ones, inappropriate, in error, dangerous, or immoral, what if we knew to plan ahead, to craft responsible retirement plans and health directives? Admitting that there's a chance our life's worldly mission will turn out wrong for the world, what if we really thought through how to manage our end games responsibly?

 

Overcoming an Addiction to a Lost Cause

 

We can't all be right. Eventually, someone has to concede and it could be us.

Importance of Trump grand jury probe cannot be overstated

The world learned this week that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., has convened a “special” grand jury to investigate the Trump Organization, its employees, and maybe even Donald J. Trump himself. The staggering reality is that we are now one step closer to the possibility of a criminal indictment against a former president of the United States. 

A scant four years ago, the very idea seemed inconceivable, if not abhorrent. In Federalist No. 64, Alexander Hamilton opined “that the President . . . so chosen will always be [someone] whose reputation for integrity inspires and merits confidence.” Although two presidents — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 — were impeached before him, Trump was the first to be impeached twice. Critics on both sides of the political spectrum have denounced that process as hopelessly politicized. But the judicial system is different. Courts are bound by rules of evidence, legal standards, procedural rules and appellate review. If Vance’s grand jury proceeds with indictments, howls of another “witch hunt” won’t insulate Trump from legal accountability.

Vance has already been operating with a grand jury in this matter for many months. His Trump investigation began in 2019, and reached a critical milestone in October 2019, when the U.S. Supreme Court greenlighted his legal authority to subpoena Trump’s personal accounting firm for financial records relating to him and his businesses. With regard to private papers, Chief Justice Roberts wrote for a 5-4 majority that a sitting president stands in “nearly the same situation with any other individual” when it comes to responding to a grand jury subpoena. A spokesperson for Vance’s team confirmed in February of this year that the Manhattan D.A. is now in possession of eight years of Trump’s illusory tax returns. 

Vance initiated the probe to investigate possible insurance, financial and tax fraud by Trump and/or his businesses, as well as hush-money payments made by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to two women in 2016 in exchange for keeping quiet about their alleged sexual relationships with Trump. Cohen went to prison for his role in the scandal.

It was also recently made public that the decades-long CFO of the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, is under criminal investigation by Vance in connection with his own taxes. Weisselberg participated in the $130,000 hush-money payment scheme involving Stormy Daniels. Because fraud crimes require proof of a state of mind — i.e., the representation of a material fact known by the maker to be false — prosecutors will likely need corroborating testimony by the likes of Cohen or Weisselberg to establish Trump’s knowledge of any fraudulent transactions or filings that could form the basis of an indictment. Without witness testimony, the trove of documents amassed by Vance and his state counterpart, Attorney General Letitia James, who has been pursuing a parallel civil probe and recently announced that prosecutors in her office have joined Vance’s criminal investigation — could be insufficient to establish a fraud case beyond a reasonable doubt. Notably, Cohen said of Trump in his testimony before the House Oversight Committee, “He knew about everything. Everything had to go through Mr. Trump and had to be approved by Mr. Trump.”

Which is why Vance’s decision to empanel a special grand jury is so significant. Unlike regular, or “petit” juries, which hear evidence at trial and decide whether not to convict, grand juries operate in secret to hear evidence and decide whether to charge a person or corporation with a crime in the first place. Grand juries date back to the reign of Henry III in medieval England (1216-1272) as a means of pushing back against arbitrary oppression by the Crown. The idea of airing evidence before a group of citizens made its way into the U.S. Constitution. Under the Fifth Amendment, individuals cannot be charged with “a capital, or otherwise infamous crime” (which courts have construed to mean one that triggers a sentence of a year in prison or more) except by grand jury, although individuals can waive that right. Absent a grand jury indictment, prosecutors often file charges on their own through what’s known as an “information,” a practice that is commonly used against corporations because they cannot go to jail. 

At the state and local levels, criminal charges can likewise be brought by either grand jury indictment or by information. According to the Manhattan D.A.’s website, “the Grand Jury must determine that the evidence is legally sufficient and that it provides reasonable cause to believe that the defendant has committed the crime” before it can issue an indictment. Vance’s new grand jury is composed of 23 citizens, 16 of which must be present for it to hear evidence; twelve must vote to indict. In Manhattan, special grand juries are convened to hear evidence on particular, long-term matters and work for longer terms than routine grand juries. Vance’s special grand jury is set to meet three days a week for six months, and can vote to extend. According to Vance’s former chief assistant, Daniel Alonso, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, “Special grand juries are common when state prosecutors get to the point where they are ready to seek an indictment but the evidence is too complex or lengthy to present during the normal four-week term.” Vance’s prosecutors have already reportedly notified at least one witness to prepare for grand jury testimony. 

The importance of what Vance and James are doing cannot be overstated. The U.S. presidency is decidedly not a monarchy, yet as the aftermath of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol demonstrates, one of the two major political parties is willing to shed accountability and maybe even democracy by the people in deference to former President Trump. Congress abdicated its oversight prerogative when it comes to Trump, setting a terrible precedent for future presidents who might be similarly inclined to smash norms, including legal ones, with impunity. It’s now up to the states — New York and Georgia, which is also investigating Trump for his infamous call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger seeking to “find” votes — as well as the city of New York to carry the constitutional water for the rest of us.

Cy Vance is one step closer to having the corrupt NYC judiciary District Attorneys and AG on indictments for obstruction of justice and suborning perjury, if not worse.

That anyone thinks this is something other than a Dem desperation move to divert attention from the illegitimacy of Dem elected officials due to deep broad election fraud, particularly of Buyden, you will be surprised by the ultimate outcome whereby ALL prior presidents are now open to such witchhunt investigations for anything, and you can be certain that all of them have far more to hide, particularly the most treasonous Obama

Kimberlie Wehle is PRESUMING that there was an "insurrection" and that it was conducted by "Trump supporters". She is also PRESUMING that the phone conversation with Raffensperger was reported correctly. Both have already proven to be incorrect, and there was no reason for any legal action to be taken in either one in regards to Trump. Congress was conducting a cowardly impeachment attack against Trump whom they all knew with certainty had won the 2020 election, having been presented with the evidence for it several times. They continued with a smear campaign against Trump supporters trying to make them into terrorists for crimes they had not committed, but the Dem's own Antifa terrorist red brigades had. The "breach" was by invitation. There was no "insurrection" but for what Congress did that day in defrauding the public out of their elected president.

Ms. Wehle is off her rocker in towing the MSM line as to facts and provides convoluted reasoning as to why reality should be ignored in favor of political pronouncements by her own party. She has no place teaching law.

Judge hears arguments in suits against Trump, Barr over 2020 Lafayette Square protest

Neal Augenstein | naugenstein@wtop.com

May 28, 2021, 1:57 PM

A federal judge is considering arguments in four lawsuits against former President Donald Trump, former Attorney General William Barr and local and federal police agencies, each claiming the constitutional rights of protesters were violated on June 1, 2020, at Lafayette Square, across the street from the White House.

The ACLU, representing Black Lives Matter DC, and three individual protesters argued the use of tear gas, rubber bullets and flashbang grenades were part of a coordinated attack on peaceful protesters demonstrating against police brutality after the death of George Floyd, in Minneapolis.

Other defendants in the case include the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, the Arlington County Police Department, the U.S. Park Police, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the U.S. Secret Service and the D.C. National Guard.

Lafayette Square was cleared forcefully minutes before a curfew imposed by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. Soon after that, Trump walked with other administration officials across Lafayette Square to St. John’s Episcopal Church, where he posed for pictures with a bible.

The plaintiffs argued the government officials who ordered and carried out the clearing of the park should be held accountable.

However, lawyers for Barr, the Park Police and other defendants say federal officials can’t be sued for damages for constitutional violations that occur near the White House. They also claim qualified immunity — a protection granted to government officials, including police officers, from being personally liable in civil cases, unless they violate “clearly established” law.

U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich pointed out several times that the protesters were peaceful.

 

Friedrich also said the crowd dispersal came before the 7 p.m. curfew, which was imposed by Bowser, after two nights of destructive protests in the nation’s capital.

Attorneys for the Department of Justice defended the park clearing.

“Federal officers do not violate First Amendment rights by moving protesters a few blocks, even if the protesters are predominantly peaceful,” said John Martin.

Martin said courts have always allowed law enforcement to protect the president of the United States.

“Presidential security is paramount,” Martin said. “No officer has ever been denied immunity for clearing an area before an appearance by the president.”

Representing the protesters, attorney Randy Mastro played video and showed photos of chemicals being sprayed by police during the park clearing.

“Your honor, why did it happen? Was it to stop violence? The attorney general himself said there was no violence,” Mastro said.

“The president had tweeted that these peaceful protesters were domestic terrorists,” argued Mastro. “It appears from the president’s own words that these protesters were targeted.”

Mastro said if the defendants’ argument that all tactics are allowed to protect presidential security, “In theory, Lafayette Square could have been cleared with live ammunition.”

After 90 minutes of arguments, Friedrich took the matter under advisement, and said she was rule in the near future.

Overall, 44.5% of those questioned said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who backed the recount with 33% saying more likely.....HA HA HA keep running your fake audits , the GOP will never win again

New poll shows election audit unpopular with Arizona voters

  • Dennis Welch
  • Posted 20 hrs ago
  •  
  • November 2020 election, which could wreak political havoc for the lawmakers and candidates who support it, according to a new statewide poll released Thursday. Just over 55% of voters oppose the Republican-led state Senate’s audit, while nearly 41% support it, according to the survey conducted by HighGround, Inc., a Republican-leaning firm based in Phoenix.

Predictably, support for the recount, which continues to look into claims of voter fraud despite any evidence, breaks down along party lines.

 

The poll finds that nearly 77% of Republicans back the effort, while 90% of Democrats oppose it. The numbers also show that supporting the audit could pay dividends for Republicans in next year’s primary election but cost them in the general election.

Overall, 44.5% of those questioned said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who backed the recount with 33% saying more likely.

Key firm drops out of Arizona GOP's 2020 election recount

“Republicans are on an island when it comes to this audit,” said Chuck Coughlin, the CEO and President of HighGound, Inc ., in the polling memo. “While it is to be expected that they would receive significant opposition from Democrats, this audit makes them face headwinds among independent and unaffiliated voters as well.”Arizona audit of 2020 election resumes after weeklong hiatus

As of Thursday morning, Randy Pullen, the new man in charge of the audit for Senate Republicans, said more than 800,000 ballots have now been counted, still less than halfway through the 2.1 million cast in Maricopa County. Pullen also said he didn’t know enough about the poll, which has a margin of error of +/- 4.9%, to comment on its results.
