Our organizers report that citizens will readily sign our petition to stop the Trump prosecutions but see this task as just one obligatory, momentary, moral act among a plethora of other noble causes requiring no long-term attention or passion. Many believe that the legal system will right itself or that some brilliant move by Trump’s attorneys will upset the regime’s onslaught. I tell you here that this is a dangerous delusion. If these prosecutions go forward we will lose Trump and the Constitution.
First, understand the desperation of the regime. Trump continues to gain support and they continue to pull all the evil levers which have worked before to no avail. Now, their intention is plainly to put him away for good, or to kill him. The one Constitutional means to stop this lies with the House of Representatives in the power of the purse and the power to impeach. Defunding Jack Smith and denying federal funds to states pursuing state prosecutions of Donald Trump while opening an impeachment inquiry of Attorney General Merrick Garland are our weapons of war. Attorney General Garland is the indispensable agent for carrying out the regime’s plan to destroy Trump and the Constitution. These two steps, put forward in our petition, stop the railroad. Nothing short of that will. In the case of Donald Trump, the legal system has been, and continues to be, deeply compromised.
If you think clearly about this, what intent other than Trump’s demise can you discern from prosecutions set in rabid Democratic jurisdictions, overseen in two instances by clearly deeply biased judges, with a possible penalty in the four cases totaling 717.5 years in prison? The Supreme Court? Didn’t you see their cowardice already displayed in the case of the 2020 rigged election? Didn’t you grasp the warning delivered by the mobs outside the Justices’ houses during the deliberations on Roe v. Wade, including the near assassination of Justice Kavanaugh?
I’ll make the case here by detailing what goes on in the regime’s chosen forum, the US District Court for Washington, DC, which Jack Smith has positioned to go first because he knows he can win here based on a rigged judiciary and a rigged jury. The case here is about Trump’s protest of the November 2020 election and the events of January 6, 2021.
The federal bench in DC? You might call them Jacobins in robes. They have bent to the fascist environment and Trump-hating local secular religion which dates from Trump’s outsider victory in 2016. By the time the J6 prosecutions began, this railroad had already been built. As of September 8th, 1,143 people had been charged with J6 offenses and 660 have pled guilty, almost exclusively in this court. There have been 140 trials and only 2 acquittals. The acquittals were bench trials before judges because everyone knows the deep bias of DC juries. The DOJ says it intends to charge 1,000 more.
In the opening days of the J6 inquisition then DC US Attorney Michael Sherwin went on 60 Minutes to announce to a national audience that the government would employ “shock and awe” in its prosecutions and invoke the sedition laws against Trump supporters for what was, if properly exposed and investigated, a government-controlled 4-hour riot. Sherwin’s edict has been implemented with FBI swat teams, tanks, and dogs deployed to arrest people charged with misdemeanors. Many of those charged with misdemeanors and non-violent offenses have been held in pretrial detention under special rules devised by then Chief Judge Beryl Howell. Most of those charged with felonies have no prior criminal history, yet they have spent months in jail pretrial and are being incarcerated for long prison terms by DC District Court judges.
Four J6 defendants have committed suicide, the most recent being Jord Meachum right after his arraignment was scheduled in DC. Julie Kelly has performed a huge public service by diligently documenting this horror. Lara Logan has just released a compelling documentary about Matthew Perna detailing why he took his own life.
The DC Court of Appeals has so far rubber stamped these convictions. All these judges constantly lecture J6 defendants about how they have betrayed their country. They constantly paint them as terrorists. Laws have been wildly manipulated to ensure maximum prison time, most importantly the Sarbanes-Oxley obstruction statute intended for financial crimes. That manipulation turns an act of protest against the fraudulent election and the operation of the Electoral Count Act into an obstruction felony carrying a possible 20-year sentence. The leader of the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio was just sentenced to 22 years in prison for seditious conspiracy and obstruction although he was not even present in DC on January 6th. His was a thought crime and this is the gravamen of what these defendants are being jailed for. Transcript after transcript tells you that the DC judges are imprisoning individuals solely for their fealty to Donald Trump.
If you want to get a nose full of the corruption which reigns in this city and how its insular culture works, read This Town by Mark Leibovich, a former New York Times reporter and Democrat, detailing the social matrix. These judges inhabit that culture. Everyone who is anyone knows one another, their kids go to the same schools, they hang out at the same parties, they scratch each others’ backs. The corrupt social dynamic defeats any political courage which might crop up among the new or yet to be initiated. Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Roberts come from the DC Circuit and are creatures of this culture.
The current Chief Judge is James Boasberg. He just replaced Beryl Howell in that post. Boasberg, a DC native, was the head of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court where he ruled on the proven fake warrants on Trump advisor Carter Page presented to that Court by the DOJ. They sanctioned an unprecedented domestic spying operation on a major party presidential candidate, Donald J. Trump. When it was proved that the warrant applications were based on deliberate fabrications by the FBI agents working to destroy the Trump presidency, Boasberg banned the agents who fabricated the warrants from practicing before the FISC without any further criminal referrals or punishments. He accepted FBI promises to reform itself.
FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who pled guilty to directly falsifying information about Page in the FISA applications, was sentenced to probation by Boasberg and kept his law license. Boasberg’s DC street creds: graduate of St. Albans and Yale where he was a member of Skull and Bones, and graduate studies at Oxford, of course, the British brainwashing finishing school for our elite. He is a veteran of private practice at “good firms,” a federal prosecutor in the US Attorney’s office for Washington, DC, an Obama appointee to the Court.
Beryl Howell? As chief judge she engaged in a judicial jihad against Donald Trump and his supporters. She presided over the grand jury which produced the indictments of Trump for J6 and for the documents he had at Mar-a-Lago. Crafting bogus exceptions to the attorney client privilege, she targeted Trump’s lawyers for testimony, forcing them to divulge notes of their confidential conversations with Trump in violation of the 6th amendment. She allowed Jack Smith to run a DC grand jury for a case which would be indicted in Florida, shielding the Mar-a-Lago indictment grand jury from supervision by the Florida federal court. Prior to that, Howell rubber-stamped Robert Mueller’s abusive Special Counsel grand jury investigations of Trump. She devised special rules for pretrial detention of J6 defendants far outside the norms dictated by the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, resulting in many defendants being illegally detained pretrial for months on misdemeanor charges.
At the ceremony in which Howell transferred her Chief Judge mantle to Boasberg, she was fawned over like some sort of rock star by the other judges, particularly by Trump’s judge in the J6 case, Tanya Chutkan. Chutkan noted approvingly that Howell had become a social media hero to Trump haters. Howell’s DC street creds: federal prosecutor in the Eastern District of New York, counsel and chief advisor to Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy when he led the Senate Judiciary Committee, Obama appointee to the DC District Court.
Judge Chutkan has been asked to recuse herself by Trump’s lawyers. She won’t do it. Her role here is fully supported by this renegade Court. At Trump’s arraignment, Judges Boasberg, Amy Berman Jackson, and other DC District Judges crowded into the spectators’ seats in Chutkan’s courtroom to signal their support for the intended hanging. You may remember Amy Berman Jackson from the cases of Roger Stone and Paul Manafort during the Robert Mueller jihad. She practically dictated the Stone jury verdict and gagged Stone from making public statements about the case pretrial. She jailed Paul Manafort pretrial in an effort to break him on Mueller’s behalf. When it was revealed that one of Stone’s jurors, the overbearing forewoman of the jury, had deliberately lied about her hatred of Stone to get on the jury and steer a conviction, Jackson exonerated the juror and refused to grant Stone a new trial.
Judge Chutkan is also an Obama appointee to the bench. She is the granddaughter of the prominent Jamaican communist Frank Hill. She had previously recused herself from the Mueller era case where the House Intelligence Committee sued Fusion GPS, the private sponsors of the bogus Christopher Steele MI6 dirty dossier against Donald Trump. As a partner at the Democratic Party law firm Boies Schiller when Hunter Biden practiced there, she had employed Fusion as investigators. In sentencing J6 defendants, she has declared J6 to be a violent attempt to overthrow the government of the United States overseen, encouraged, and choreographed by Donald Trump. She has consistently handed out the harshest sentences for J6 defendants, sentences far in excess of the sentencing guidelines. The recusal motion filed by Trump’s attorneys asserts that Chutkan has prejudged the Trump case, citing statements like this one in the J6 case, U.S. v Christine Priola:
“This was nothing less than an attempt to violently overthrow the government, the legally, lawfully, peacefully elected government by individuals who were mad because their guy lost. I see the videotapes. I see the footage of the flags and the signs that people were carrying, and the hats that they were wearing, and the garb. And the people who mobbed the Capitol were there in fealty, in loyalty, to one man—not to the Constitution, of which most of the people who came before me were woefully ignorant; not to the ideals of this country, and not to the principles of democracy. It’s a blind loyalty to one person who, by the way, remains free to this day. “
Okay, you say, so the judge is out to hang Donald Trump. What about the jury? Joe Biden won in DC in 2020 by garnering 93% of the vote. The hatred of Trump is palpable if you go out in the streets here. Polling by Emerson already has 64% of DC residents declaring Trump guilty prior to even hearing evidence at trial. George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley compares it to “conducting voir dire inside the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee.” Remember the story about the juror in the Roger Stone case who lied in voir dire in order to lead the jury to a conviction. That unpunished feat can be predicted to be replicated in spades here.
Like we said at the outset. There won’t be legal miracles in this rigged game. A close examination of the Manhattan or Atlanta circumstances would reveal further huge obstacles of justice. You have to prevent the destruction of Trump and the Constitution. There is one Constitutional forum to do that right now, the US House of Representatives. Sign and circulate this petition as if your life and your childrens’ lives depended on it. They do.
