Subject: RE: Trump INDICTED x4 NO new Trump threads part III
From: Stilly River Sage
Date: 20 May 24 - 11:55 AM

When the defense or prosecution has a witness they need to remove or discredit it is called "impeaching the witness." But here the defendant has already been impeached (twice!), so many of the witnesses have shady backstories, and Cohen himself served 13 months in prison. The bar is set bizarrely low for everything in this case.

The last day of Cohen testimony today, then hopefully the summing up in closing statements tomorrow will set it all in play for the jurors.

The MSNBC talking heads are discussing the lack of wisdom in the defense attorney spending so much time interviewing Cohen - noting that the more questions asked the more opportunity Cohen has to tell his own story (beyond simple Yes and No answers) and it makes Trump look progressively worse.

Meanwhile, the peanut gallery in their blue suits and red ties in the park opposite the federal courthouse are doing Trump's dirty work by trashing the court, the jury, and more.

We're waiting for the completion of the Cohen cross-examination (and some prosecutor rebuttals) and on Tuesday both sides are directed to be ready to begin closing remarks. It's a damned shame that the case with the fewest teeth is the only one that is probably going to be conducted before the election in November.

It's time for Steve Bannon to report to prison. He lost his appeal.
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.

I guess we need to learn more about the leanings of judge Carl Nichols.

I heard some of the running progress of the Cohen testimony today, and the MSNBC folks speculate on how the questioning will go, if the "real Michael Cohen" will be goaded into appearing. But just as this trial isn't about sex, it isn't about Michael Cohen either.

I am annoyed at the effrontery of the defense attorney to keep referring to the man on trial as "President Trump." He isn't president and he is such a horrible individual that using the title as an honorific is undeserved. They should be calling him Mr. Trump.

I heard a bit of the reporting today during Cohen's testimony but didn't have it on all day. I'll turn on the Monday evening commentary from Psaki and Maddow and O'Donnell (and O'Donnell was at court again today.)

This afternoon they've talked about how Trump refused to use email because of the story of a big gangster Giannani who refused to "go down" by being trapped by what he wrote. So like a good gangster, Trump never uses email.

The thing about his being a liar - it was to Congress about his business with Trump. Protecting the boss. It's not in any other context.

Interesting commentary on Michael Cohen, the man who destroyed his own life to try to put Donald Trump in jail

"He [Michael Cohen] was once Trump's personal attorney and said he would 'take a bullet' for his boss, but everything has changed.

"Michael Cohen served years in prison for lying, tax fraud, bank fraud and campaign finance violations.

"But he thinks everything he's gone through will be worth it if he can take Trump down."

......

"And now, Trump faces a criminal trial in relation to the Stormy Daniels payment.

"Michael Cohen's entire life for the last six years has been leading up to his testimony in this trial.

"He's hardly a perfect witness. He is a liar and a criminal. He is not at all impartial.

"The question is — will his story be compelling enough for a jury to find Donald Trump guilty for a crime that Cohen has already served time for?"

Daniels apparently made mincemeat of the defense lawyer (Necheles) who kept her on the stand way longer than was necessary. And then the judge again refused to alter the gag order or allow a mistrial - because of the opening statement by Trump's attorney. Blanche called Daniels a liar at that point, yet he didn't discuss or protest all of the accounting issues that the case is actually about. And the judge said he must allow Daniels to restore her reputation, the jury can't just accept the opening statement that she was lying and have nothing to compare it to. So the "orange turd" discussion that was so prominent in yesterday's cross examination was their own damn fault. (And the fact that Stormy Daniels got to discuss hyperbole - her word - and explain the joke to Trump's attorney was priceless!)

Ms Daniels described the sexual encounter with Trump - it was a power play by a guy who dangled a place on his television program and who wasn't taking no for an answer. She said it was consensual, but he had her isolated with no power and her heart wasn't in it, plus the scumbag didn't use a scumbag. The act wasn't illegal, what he did to hide it before the election is what is illegal. In a nutshell.

The jury won't be able to unhear this testimony.

Simply, He didn't do anything, nothing happened.
If something did happen it was Michael Cohen.
If it all happened the election was just a coincidence.

There is something for everyone. They just need one juror to say

The news channel this morning reported on juror issues, someone needs to go to the dentist (is that an identifying element that will put them at risk?) and another was feeling nervous about being part of the process. Waiting for blow-by-blow accounts of the trial, since it isn't broadcast, isn't endurable. I'll tune in tonight for a recap. As it progresses we'll figure out what parts are worth watching for during the day, if any.

Apparently Trump spent just about as much on attorneys fees as he took in in donations last month (his supporters aren't wise to where their money is going? It isn't supporting candidate activity.) He's grousing about needing to be in Georgia and Florida for some of those proceedings. Poor baby. Shouldn't have participated in criminal activity, then his time would be his own.

The (Oz) ABC article I read showed Scaramucci's opinions fairly clearly but then I was doubting his motives because of your comments. I didn't do more research on him myself.

The article stated that he left the Trump administration within three weeks so he made that decision very quickly. The rest of the information in the article seemed to support his ongoing disapproval of Trump and his determination to take action to try to stop his re-election.

MaJoC I think you're right - the zeal is real, so to speak.

I started reading more about him (articles and Wikipedia) and went down a rabbit hole that eventually took me to reading the history of the program Wall Street Week (it sounds like a tortured investigation but the short answer is that Scaramucci's bio says that he hosted that show for a while after the program changed and Rukeyser left). And summing his political history briefly, he has gone back and forth between the two major parties. He has been busy and at times controversial, but unless there is a defining event that somehow isn't appearing in these articles I'm reading, I must have conflated his name with some other Trump ally. Of the two, Scaramucci would be a better source of information than the convicted Avenatti.

Anthony Scaramucci can't be trusted as a source no matter how much time has passed since he was in the Trump domain. Another one not to trust as a source of information in recent interviews is Michael Avenatti, who was the attorney for Stormy Daniels (until he stole $300,000 from her and was imprisoned). He has been heard recently opining on the Trump case and dissing his former client. Self-interest from both creeps. Don't give them oxygen.

An article worth reading from an interview on (Oz) ABC Radio National:

Anthony Scaramucci on the US election and what happens if ex-boss Donald Trump wins

"Anthony Scaramucci is part of a long conga line of people who worked in Donald Trump's White House and then turned on their former boss.

"Scaramucci had a very brief tenure as White House communications director in 2017, and after what he saw from inside and outside Trump-world, he doesn't mince words.

"Trump was a 'disaster', someone who 'didn't do the homework', an 'impetuous' leader 'reeling from one potential crisis to the next', he tells [Oz] ABC RN's Global Roaming.

"Perhaps his biggest zinger: The 45th president was 'an orange wrecking ball'.

"And although some recent polls show a neck-and-neck race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump in November's US election, Scaramucci believes Trump will lose — and lose soundly.

"But should Trump prevail, 'The Mooch' has a warning for America and the world.

"'[Trump is] an incredibly dangerous guy. I'm a lifelong Republican [but] I'll be working very hard against him over the next seven months,' he says."

....

"By Scaramucci's estimates, there are around 40 fellow Trump White House alumni 'that are denouncing him and begging the American public not to allow him to return to the presidency'.

"'It's my job, alongside my friends who love the country, to put patriotism first and partisanship last, and work hard to make sure that he doesn't win,' he says.

"'[So] I'm going with the older, slightly forgetful guy as opposed to the lunatic.'"

And along with excusing her the judge instructed media outlets to no longer give the job, neighborhood and or employer information.

One man interviewed on MSNBC this morning said he was excused because he is an artist who has satirized Trump for years. He thought he could be objective but figured as soon as they sussed out his work they would get rid of him as a juror.

Looking back I have seen how and why the indictments have come so late. Berman the AG in NY was ordered by federal AG Bill Barr to drop the investigations regarding Trump. Berman refused and Barr then falsely announced Berman had resigned. Berman responded that he has not resigned and that Barr had lied. In the end President Trump fired Berman.

Regarding why Merrick Garland was reticent to bring Trump indictments goes all the way back to when he was a young AG in OK during the bombing of the Muir building by Timothy McVeigh and others.

28 years ago soon after the OJ Trial and well after Ruby Ridge and Waco, 2 blunders by a militarized ATF, Merrick Garland had a dilemma of going after the entire neo nazi right-wing conspiracy or just Timothy Mc Veigh as a lone bomber. Garland chose the easiest path then and now.

Rubber neckers are a hazard on the highway and possibly on social media but the trial has suspense anyway you cut it.
