I’m shocked this circus even allowed Robert Costello’s testimony
What are they required to present to the grand jury as opposed to an actual trial?
I heard an extended interview with Costello on John Solomon last night. Cohen’s lawyer, and that idiot signed an attorney-client confidentiality waiver, so Costello is free to repeat everything Cohen said to him. You only need one juror who isn’t corrupt, and the case will go down in flames.
This is actually quite dangerous for Bragg. He’s got the flimsiest of cases, with a time-barred misdemeanor AT BEST that he’s trying to gin up into a felony. You have a witness in Costello who will burn the star witness, Cohen, righ to the ground. Now there’s the prospect of a bar complaint becuasencostello makes out a compelling case that exculpatory evidence was withheld from the grand jury.
We’ll see if Bragg’s TDS is strong enough to get him to go for it in what will be a very troubled case
BOING. Which are grounds for disbarment in a sane world. Wouldn’t it be delicious if this moron lost his law license as a result of all this and Trump gets a boost in the polls to boot. Have the leftist dogs not gotten boomeranged in the mush enough times. Every single time they pull a stunt like this Trump peels off another block of voters who become enlightened to the reams of info on the left’s tactics and are disgusted.
You can bet your ass the steal is on for 24 because without it I think Biden loses. Worst POTUS in history should not be re elected.
Me, too. Grand jury proceedings are typically one-sided with no rebuttal witnesses called.
As pas asked in post 3, in Bragg required to present exculpatory evidence to the grand jury? Certainly, in a trial it would be a severe problem.
Nothing. A grand jury is the prosecutor’s show.
The requirement to produce evidence doesn’t come until there’s an indictment.
Just as an aside—where are those woke college kids and paid protesters demanding that ‘Bragg’ change his last name?
Costello must have played Cohen to get in the door.
I saw Cohen on some show...he was raging and looked like hell.
Here’s a theory: Bragg knows that this case is likely to get tossed because of his office’s withholding of evidence.
But his hatred of President Trump is so entrenched that he does not care, for two reasons. One, Bragg will have his scalp (sorry Wokesters) in that history will record Trump during the perpwalk and maybe in handcuffs. Two: the corrupt NY legal system will not disbar one of their fellow travelers because they agree with his tactics.
So Bragg gets a win-win.
“ You only need one juror who isn’t corrupt, and the case will go down in flames”
In a Grand Jury it is a majority vote as to whether to indict or not. One or two dissenting jurors are not enough to avoid indictment.
Actually for Bragg it may be best if the Grand Jury declines to indict Trump. Bragg probably has a pretty weak case and legally suspect. If he goes to trial and loses, he looks like a fool. If the Grand Jury declines to indict then Bragg can say he did all he could do, blame the Grand Jury system.
I was unclear: I was referring to the trial jury
The grand jury is an accusatory body not an adjudicatory body.
The headline is baseless clickbait.
United States v. Williams 504 U.S. 36 (1992)
“Respondent Williams was indicted by a federal grand jury for alleged violations of 18 U.S.C. 1014. On his motion, the District Court ordered the indictment dismissed without prejudice because the Government had failed to fulfill its obligation under Circuit precedent to present “substantial exculpatory evidence” to the grand jury. Following that precedent, the Court of Appeals affirmed.”
Still puzzled about WHERE we’re being driven, by WHOM are we being driven and, more importantly, to WHERE ARE WE BEING DRIVEN?
If you think only CATTLE are DRIVEN, WATCH & SHARE THIS VITAL FILM!
Affirmative action promotions sometimes have their benefits.
Our enemies are too stupid to prevail.
Let me add: I don’t know NY procedure, only CA. There’s a reasonable chance, if this showing was made in CA, that the defense could get a directed verdict. Everyone is saying it, and everyone is correct: this is an extremely rickety case, and the DA will be playing with fire if he chooses to bring it
