Where the following is reported:
Prosecutors objected several times during Haggard's testimony [that was allowed before the jury], arguing outside the jury's presence that the FEC opinion was "an end run" irrelevant to the Edwards criminal case. They told U.S. District Court Judge Catherine Eagles that the court and jury, not a defense witness, should decide the matter.
They won a victory when Eagles said she would sharply limit upcoming testimony from former FEC Chairman Scott Thomas. With the jury out of the courtroom, Thomas went through his testimony before the judge, saying the money donated by Mellon and Baron did not qualify as campaign contributions.
Eagles ruled that Thomas would not be permitted to repeat the statement in front of the jury.
Its even legal for a democrat to eat a child on the six oclock news and be hailed as a hero
This is so overblown and distorted it is laughable. First, attempting to quash derogatory disclosures about ones self does not ascribe guilt, period! Secondly, Trump did not use anyone elses contributions or money but his own to make those payments. Third, my understanding is that Trump used his own money for the election so how can this be a violation of election law?
Edwards was a Democrat, different rules for them.
If there are Obama people in the FEC its position on Trump will the complete opposite. Democrats have no problem with hypocrisy.
Equality before the law.
Lack of equality before the law is what you expect in Slavery and Indentured Servitude, monarchies, and Socialist/fascists states (same thing really).
Equality before the law is supposed to be a principle of liberalism. Which means that democrats ARE NOT REALLY LIBERALS. See the following: 1) IRS targeting conservatives. 2) EPA targeting conservatives 3) FISA courts used to spy on political campaigns. 4) Calls by Democrats to impeach Trump for ‘campaign finance of hush money’.
Lets just say that it hypocrisy doesn’t get more obvious that that.
Illegality is not the issue with Smarmy Daniels, nor is removal from office.
Smarmy is for 2020 politics. Dems got nothing else.
Laws/rules do not apply to lwftist.
That is the real news.
Even being Rich, Edwards used money from his Campaign, other People’s money of course.
Remember when he did a little Financial Hocus Pocus to avoid paying his Medicare Taxes? I do.
Wow. Didn't Trump allegedly pay around $280k for TWO flings? Edwards paid nearly 5 times more for 1/2.
Guess Trump really is great at getting deals done.
