Donald Trump could use court of evidence to burn witnesses, DA says



NEW YORK. The New York prosecutor’s office has asked a judge to stop Donald Trump from using evidence from his criminal case to attack witnesses, citing what they say the former president has made “insulting, embarrassing and threatening statements” about the people with whom he involved in legal disputes.

On Monday, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office filed court papers asking Judge Juan Manuel Mercan to issue a protection order that would impose severe restrictions on Trump’s access to and use of pre-trial evidence released by prosecutors. This type of exchange of evidence, called disclosure, is commonplace in criminal cases and is intended to help ensure a fair trial.

Prosecutors want to stop Trump from posting evidence on social media or making it available to third parties. They also want to limit his viewing of certain sensitive material, requiring that he only do so in the presence of his lawyers and that he cannot copy, photograph or transcribe these recordings.

Trump “has a long and possibly exceptional history of attacks on witnesses, investigators, prosecutors, jurors, jurors, judges and others involved in legal proceedings against him,” Assistant District Attorney Katherine McCaw wrote.

This behavior has put “these individuals and their families at significant security risk,” she said.

Merchan did not immediately rule on the prosecution’s request. McCaw, in her statement, asked him to schedule a hearing on the matter next week.

Email messages asking for comment were left with Trump’s lawyers.

Prosecutors first raised concerns that Trump could use the discovery process as a weapon during his April 4 indictment on charges of falsifying records at his company as part of a wider 2016 covert silence payment scheme to cover up accusations of extramarital sexual contacts. Trump denied wrongdoing or extramarital affairs and pleaded not guilty.

As Trump sat at the defense table a few feet away, McCaw told Merchan that a protection order was needed to “ensure the integrity of the trial as well as the integrity of the investigation file.”

At the time, McCaw said Trump’s prosecutors and lawyers were close to a joint agreement with many of the restrictions that prosecutors are now asking Merchan to impose. Negotiations later broke down, causing the prosecutor’s office to demand the intervention of a judge.

Subsequently, McCarthy acknowledged that “many of them raise a lot of questions” regarding the recurrence of biofuel loans. But he seemed confident that he had persuaded enough Midwesterners to vote for the bill (HR 2811) unchanged, admitting that it was just an opening bid for bipartisan talks.

“This bill should push us into negotiations,” McCarthy said. “These are not final provisions and there are a number of members who will vote for it in the future to say that they have some concerns and that they will be concerned about what things will come up, but they want to make sure that the negotiations go on. forward.”

Most participants declined to comment after the meeting. Van Orden only said he was going to the Rules Committee to discuss his amendment, which proposed a drastic repeal of loans that members of the Midwest wanted to protect, namely credits for biodiesel, cleaner fuels, cleaner jet fuel, and carbon capture for power plants. ethanol production. as well as one for nuclear power.

Finstad said negotiations are still ongoing.

“I just love what everyone is saying about biofuels, period,” Hinson said.

Dr. Fauci admits masks didn’t really do much good –



As we noted today, Dr. Anthony Fauci was interviewed by the New York Times and denied any responsibility for the COVID lockdown. We also took a look at Alyssa Farah Griffin’s attempt to support him. This attempt to rewrite history is annoying enough. However, Ian Miles Cheong found something else unpleasant in this interview:

Now he says it.

Now he’s saying this after people were censored on social media for questioning his claim that masks were some sort of miracle cure.

Now he’s saying this after deaf lip readers ruined their lives.

Yes, she won the trial, but only anus To lose a job.

Now he says they didn’t work very well after Shannon Eru brought herself to tears:

Now he says this after the child abuse happened:

Now he says this after this parent told us how it hurt her children’s health:

Now he tells us.

And he knew masks weren’t important. His behavior told you that he knew:

They Alles knew:

Everyone knew, but they still imposed these mandates. We are not saying that no one benefits from disguise. Some people are more vulnerable to COVID than others. But there has never been evidence that the benefits of mandatory mask-wearing outweigh the harms. We had to give up freedom and individual choice.

Listen to these children when they are told that they will no longer be forced to wear a mask, listen to their joy:

Their joy is an accusation against every politician who forced them to wear masks, especially if they could not live by the rules they imposed on us.

Of course, there were some reactions:

That would be sarcasm on 11.

It’s okay to laugh guys. But also never forget the lessons we have learned.

The mystery continues



I have mentioned my love/hate relationship several times with media coverage of Dylan Byers and Eric Gardner, brilliant media columnist for the prestigious bouthemoth (boutique+behemoth) Puck News newsletter. It’s all leveraged buyouts and acquisitions, high-profile gossip, and nothing much about journalism or journalism laws. But I thought that if they ever agree with me, it will be the story of Carlson and Fox. So I checked that they had a lot of anticipation.
