    The New York Sun ^ | 3/31/23 | ALAN DERSHOWITZ
    It is likely that a serious felony has been committed right under District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s nose and he is not investigating it. Under New York law, it is a felony to leak confidential grand jury information, such as whether the jurors voted to indict. The protection of secrecy is as applicable to President Trump as it is to anyone else. We know that the information was disclosed while the indictment itself remains sealed and before any official announcement was made or charges brought. It is unlikely that the leak came from the Trump team, which seemed genuinely surprised. The...

    If Alvin Bragg is looking for a felony in the case he has brought against former President Donald Trump he may want to look in the mirror, in his office or at his grand jury. Legal scholar and famed attorney Alan Dershowitz said, in an interview and in an op-ed, that whoever leaked the sealed indictment is the person guilty of the only felony, in his opinion, in this case., “It is likely that a serious felony has been committed right under District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s nose and he is not investigating it. Under New York law, it is a...

    Berkeley replied in an e-mail to Townhall that given “recent, violent incidents in the City of Berkeley and Charlottesville, the University of California Police Department (UCPD) recently completed a revised security assessment for the September 14th event featuring Ben Shapiro.” They said this is “consistent with demands presented by the BCR to the UCPD in a recent written communication, as well as University’s event policy that applies to all student organizations and clearly states: “If UCPD determines that, because of new information it has received or changing circumstances, its security assessment must be modified, it will schedule additional meetings or...

    An investigative video, shockingly made by none other than fake news specialists CNN, tells the truthful story of the radical Antifa movement. You will find out all you need to know about Antifa in less than 6 minutes in this video. No really, this isn’t a joke; it’s an actual CNN piece on Antifa that isn’t leftist propaganda. Pay close attention to the words of the person speaking for Antifa in the video. She describes Antifa as “any group that’s willing to stand up against fascists by any means necessary.” She goes on to say that they “don’t rely on...

    What was your intention with inserting that pause? You have Katie asking the group this question, “Do you think people on the terror watch list should be allowed to own guns?” Katie’s asking the question of the group, but as the filmmaker, I want to ask the question of the audience. So what I was thinking, my editor was thinking was we need to stop for a second, because the film moves along at a really fast clip. So you’ll see that throughout we’ll stop down after something happens or when we present something. The terror watch list is a...

    During a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing concerning oversight, Rep. Zoe Lofgren decided to quiz Attorney General Eric Holder about the federal government's surveillance efforts, starting off with a rather simple question. She notes that the bulk phone record collection program is considered to be legal by its supporters, based on Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows for the collection of "business records." So, she wonders, is there any legal distinction between phone records and, say, internet searches or emails? In other words, does the DOJ believe that it would be perfectly legal for the US government to...

    DETROIT- Attorneys for Kwame Kilpatrick are catching a judge's anger after the Detroit mayor missed a hearing in 36th District Court. Judge Ronald Giles complained Tuesday about Kilpatrick's absence and the short notice given of a weekend trip to Texas. Tuesday's hearing was on a motion filed by defense attorneys. Kilpatrick informed the court Saturday that he was flying to Texas on city business that night. His bond allows travel outside the state, but Giles has said the mayor is to attend hearings. Kilpatrick and former Chief of Staff Christine Beatty face a Sept. 22 preliminary examination on perjury and...

    The disciplinary arm of the N.C. State Bar dropped charges of felonious misconduct against two former Union County prosecutors Friday because of a 1999 clerical error at the state Supreme Court. The State Bar had charged Kenneth Honeycutt and Scott Brewer with lying, cheating and withholding evidence in a 1996 death penalty case. The ruling Friday marks the second time that Honeycutt and Brewer won on procedural grounds before the bar's Disciplinary Hearing Commission, which sits as judge and jury in disciplinary cases. . . . Prosecutors around the state are concerned that the case is damaging their reputation and...

    Conflicting reports tell us that Mr. Berger will be “cleared of all charges” (WSJ) and "In spite of what the Wall Street Journal said, the National Archives really isn't commenting on this case because it's under investigation," Susan Cooper, chief spokeswoman for the Archives, told Ms. Cooper went on to say that there are two key issues under consideration: Whether or not information was “permanently” destroyed and/or withheld from the 9/11 Commission. WSJ reported that Archives officials said that “no original materials are missing” and “nothing Mr. Berger reviewed was withheld from the commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001,...
