Now that the Manhattan criminal case against Trump is underway, what’s next? Atlanta or DC?
Last night at Mar-A-Lago Trump gave DOJ prosecutors a confession in the documents case.
“I openly and in very plain sight brought documents with me to Mar-A-Lago from our beautiful White House”
There goes the argument he didn’t know they were taken. Goes a long way toward proving intent to take and conceal government documents.

The former president drew a puny crowd of supporters outside his arraignment in New York City, while his friend Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene sought to compare him to other historical figures who have been arrested.

Jordan Klepper went to Trump’s arraignment and got to ask George Santos a few important questions.
well, it will be a while for the GA case according to yahoo:
prior to that is E. Jean Carroll case set for an April trial (msn.com):
soooo will special counsel Jack Smith be ready with the stolen super secrets case right after the rape case or after the coup case? as Ivy suggested, mixers, this calls for a trail pool.
my guess is Smith will allow GA to go first and then follow-up immediately after the loser guy is arraigned in Atlanta — early to mid May — NYC, GA and D.C. fittingly reminiscent of the old 3 strikes and you’re in for life law.

There must be some heavy-ass bad medicine lurking in Lindsey’s closet. That boy is totally off the rails.
I guess he thought he was gonna be the next Strom Thurmond.
Everybody who’s going to be the next Strom Thurmond, take one step forward.
Not so fast, Mr Graham.
Poor Lindsey….there’s no way forward and he can’t even quit.
Go back to the farm you filthy animal! Get the f*** outa New York!
–New Yorker to mtg
So, he intentionally took government docs to FLA, and he inadvertently took them, and they were planted, and he only took the folders as “cool” souvenirs.
Does he defend himself in the E Jean Carroll defamation/rape trial in April?
April 4, 2023 at 4:03 pm
“The civil case brought by writer E. Jean Carroll claiming that Trump raped and subsequently defamed her is scheduled for a jury trial on April 25. Unlike the indictment that could take a long time to reach a jury, this trial could result in a blockbuster jury verdict as early as May finding that Trump is guilty of rape.”
“…New York Adult Survivors Act that extended the statute of limitations for sexual assault victims to sue the perpetrators for damages. The trial evidence appears to be heavily stacked against Trump. Although Carroll’s case does not depend solely on her testimony, Trump’s defense hinges on Trump’s own testimony.”
“On March 10 Judge Kaplan ruled that as part of her direct case, Carroll can introduce the testimony of two women who were allegedly sexually assaulted by Trump, one on an airplane and one at Mar-a-Lago during an interview of Trump for People magazine. Both women provide evidence of Trump’s propensity to commit such sexual assaults, as permitted by the rules of evidence.”
“Trump is faced with a conundrum — the only way he can rebut Carroll’s case is to testify in his own defense. That will subject him to a blistering cross examination concerning his predatory history. That coupled with his propensity to lie puts him in a real bind.”
“However, Trump cannot hide behind the Fifth Amendment privilege without suffering the dire consequences that in a civil case, unlike a criminal prosecution, his refusal to take the witness stand or to assert his Fifth Amendment privilege can be used by the jury to conclude that Trump raped Carroll and therefore defamed her.”
Flip flop and fly away.
he needs just a touch more lipstick and eyeshadow before he can compete with tammy
sturge, imagine a future tearful senator and gang breaking out in a different fly away song medley segueing into “i saw the light (back on jan6)” and “will our cult be broken up” ending with “man of constant sorrow” as encore
this is what I’m celebrating today….
Democrats optimistic saving Democracy in Wisconsin after liberal’s state Supreme Court win
Good call RR and she creamed him. I am glad to see voters in Wisconsin managed to vote despite the endless efforts of the goopers to only let republicans vote.
Renee called it, that was the news of the day. Donald Trump being an idiot isn’t news.
The Supreme court overturning Roe v Wade is the gift that keeps on giving and if the Democrats were smart they would quit talking about Trump and start pushing harder on abortion rights and moderate firearms regulation. Those are 2 winning issues.
Lindsey is channeling a cross between Ernest Angely and Jimmy Swaggert not Jim Bakker. Well, there’s more than a dollop of wannabe Oral Roberts and lots of wannabe Elmer Gantry, Aimee Simple McPerson, Billy Graham, and Marjoe Gortner. But in the end, since it’s Lindsey it’s just flat and creepy.
Lady G(rifter) is committed to backing the wrong horse.
“Former top national security officials have testified to a federal grand jury that they repeatedly told former President Donald Trump and his allies that the government didn’t have the authority to seize voting machines after the 2020 election, CNN has learned.”
Because, Varuca, we are not a dictatorship. That’s something your buddy, Pootin, would do.
“North Carolina Republicans gained a veto-proof supermajority in the state House after a Charlotte-area Democrat announced Wednesday she was switching parties.”
“State Rep. Tricia Cotham, who won election as a Democrat in her blue district last fall by nearly 20 points, said at a news conference with state Republican leaders that “the modern-day Democratic Party has become unrecognizable to me.”
So, it seems she must “recognize” today’s Republican Party from Nazi war films.
“Rep. Tricia Cotham campaigned as a Democrat and supporter of abortion rights, health care, public education, gun safety, and civil rights,” Reives said in a statement. “Now, just a few months later, Rep. Cotham is changing parties. That is not the person that was presented to the voters of House District 112 … and who they championed in a general election in a 60% Democratic district.”
“On Tuesday, state Rep. Robert Reives, the Democratic leader of the state House, said the “appropriate action” would be for Cotham to resign so that her constituents are fairly represented.”
Her pawns, er, constituents should bombard her office staff and email with demands for her resignation. She won’t, but don’t let her rest comfortably in her lie.
Even if this first Trump trial doesn’t seem that serious — there will be lots of embarrassing moments –especially for Melanoma. Trump is not going to have a happy home.
Saw Daniel Kelly on the tube last night – not exactly what I’d call a gracious loser. Another word (asshole) comes to mind.
Alrighty then, now look who wants to defund the police
The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy. Our fight against Trumpism is only beginning. We must combat these forces everywhere and at all times — our democracy depends on it.
Let me get this straight, Lindsey rakes in the cash in his name and pledges it to the Defendant? So it’s all on the line, his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor.
Ivy, that’s called a “gofundme” crowdfunding thingy but spelled with a “c” instead of an “n”
For a long time Wisconsin was a progressive state. A great history of elected officials particularly in the Senate ( except for McCarthy) And then the state fell into the toilet.
I still cannot believe they picked Ron Johnson over Russ Feingold. And Scott Walker the gov from the JCs. Let’s hope whatever made the voters make stupid decisions is gone now.
Lindsay has nothing left to lose. He is the biggest loser.
“You’re getting this letter because we included potentially misleading deductible information…”
In addition to the deductible for Medicare services…”the plan also has another deductible that applies to prescription drugs.”
The ACA is effed up. This is the third ACA plan I’ve had in 8 months. I have 60 days to choose a new one, but this was the best one I found…except that it was just as bad as the rest. The company I used for three month last year decided not to do business in TX this year. The ACA is effed up.
So, based on Orange Adolf’s last tweet (or whatever his platform calls them), he’s calling for Republicans in Congress to do his bidding. Does he think they have a constituency of one? Do they think that, too?
Did Lindsey do something really bad? Not just embarrassing to him, but potentially criminal? What kind of dirt does tRUMPsky/Pootin have on him?
“…our already under siege elections”
The fucker knows a thing or two about sieges, eh?
(like how to incite one on the Capitol, for instance)
“Dominion Voting Systems can force Fox Corporation executives Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch to testify on the witness stand at this month’s scheduled defamation trial, a Delaware judge said Wednesday.”
It looks like the propaganda arm of the Republican-Fascist Party isn’t faring too well.
I say hats off to the Dominion voting machines company for being willing to take Fox to court. It has certainly been enjoyable so far.
I wish it was easier for individuals to sue although I see the danger in that but I still think it would be a good thing.
“Kennedy Jr. is a longtime vaccine skeptic. He has promoted discredited claims linking vaccines and autism and founded the anti-vaccine organization Children’s Health Defense. He has also railed against the coronavirus vaccine and has criticized the federal government’s handling of the pandemic.”
“In 2019, three members of his family – his sister Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, brother Joseph P. Kennedy II and niece Maeve Kennedy McKean – forcefully denounced his anti-vaccine views in a Politico Magazine op-ed, arguing that he was “part of a misinformation campaign that’s having heartbreaking – and deadly – consequences.”
“In 2022, Kennedy Jr. invoked Nazi Germany in an anti-vaccine speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.”
“As an environmental lawyer, Kennedy worked with a group that led the Hudson River cleanup. He also worked for the Natural Resources Defense Council and co-founded an environmental law firm.”
Anti-vaxxer throws his spanner into the work.
This is not good news for Dems; he’s an environmental lawyer and he’s going take support from Biden, because of the Willie Project and leasing out the Gulf of Mexico to oil companies.
It will be interesting to see if he gets any support from his family, or if they can talk some sense into him.
RFK Jr. Loved his dad. Not as crazy about him. I’d like to think there’s more than one side to the vaccination debate, but I only seen one legitimate side. And that legitimate side is “get the fucking vaccination and shut the fuck up”. The alternative viewpoint appears to be based on misinformation and stupidity. So Robert Kennedy Junior is on the ignorance and stupidity side of the debate as far as I’m concerned.
