    Jeffrey Toobin, that former CNN legal analyst who managed to use a Zoom call to transform his name into a verb, returned to that network on Friday to stroke his theories on the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump.Jeffrey Toobin, a former CNN legal analyst, returned to the network on Friday and argued that the Georgia case against Donald Trump was "going nowhere," and said it had been a "very good day for Donald Trump."Toobin, a former federal prosecutor, and Gwen Keyes, a former district attorney in DeKalb County, Georgia, joined CNN's Elie Honig and Anderson Cooper...

    Fulton County, Ga., Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee made his decision on whether District Attorney Fani Willis can continue prosecuting Donald Trump and 18 other co-defendants on corruption charges. McAfee ruled that Willis can continue to prosecute the former president and his co-defendants, but he has given the state multiple options to handle the case. All options involve Nathan Wade stepping away from the team. “The prosecution of this case cannot proceed until the State selects one of two options,” McAfee wrote in his decision. “The District Attorney may choose to step aside, along with the whole of her office,...

    The Georgia State Senate Special Committee on Investigations Wednesday morning heard testimony from Trump RICO co-defendant Michael Roman’s attorney, Ashleigh Merchant. In a previous court filing, Michael Roman revealed Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis “financially benefited” from a romantic relationship with top Trump prosecutor Nathan Wade. Merchant testified on her conversations with Nathan Wade’s former law partner and divorce attorney Terrence Bradley. Merchant testified that Fani Willis indeed visited the Biden White House and met with Kamala Harris prior to the Trump RICO indictment. According to publicly available records, Fani Willis visited the White House and met with Kamala...

    One of the more underappreciated recent trends in American law and politics, obscured by a few high-profile conservative victories at the Supreme Court and thus noticed by few other than dyed-in-the-wool legal conservatives, is that former President Donald Trump's three picks for the high court are soft and undependable. The truth is that none of the Trump-era triumvirate of Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett can hold a candle to their two reliably conservative senior colleagues Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. Kavanaugh and Barrett are pragmatic center-right judges, eager to avoid wading into hot-button "cultural" topics such...

    One of the key facets of presenting legal arguments involves drawing parallels and distinctions between circumstances and parties. In large part, this is due to the significant role played by legal precedent in our justice system. Precedent refers to a court decision that is considered as authority for deciding subsequent cases involving identical or similar facts, or similar legal issues. Precedent is incorporated into the doctrine of stare decisis and requires courts to apply the law in the same manner to cases with the same facts. Some judges have stated that precedent ensures that individuals in similar situations are treated...

    Earlier this month, special counsel David Weiss filed charges against former longtime FBI informant Alexander Smirnov, who was the confidential human source (CHS) who reported that Joe Biden received bribes from the Ukrainian oil and gas company Burisma. Those allegations were first documented on the infamous FD-1023 form in 2020 but went uninvestigated for three years. It was only reviewed after Sen. Charles Grassley released it publicly and Hunter Biden's plea deal fell apart. I was immediately suspicious of the indictment. For one thing, the Biden administration had fought to keep the FD-1023 from being released — an action that...

    Even dictatorships have judges.Which doesn’t mean they have justice.Democrats appear ever-more enamored with “lawfare” — a term that hardly existed before Donald Trump was elected president in 2016 — as they try to keep Trump from returning to the White House.Left-wing politicians, prosecutors, and lawyers may be sincere when they say they believe Trump is an existential threat to democracy who must be stopped by any means necessary. But they would be wise not to become what they fear.The Democratic effort to twist the legal system has accelerated in the last few months. Trump and his most ardent supporters now...

    As questions arise as to whether Jack Smith was even legally appointed as President Trump's special prosecutor, and a judge messes up Smith's Super Tuesday timetable for Trump's trial, Smith is showing signs of desperation now. He's asked the court to wipe out President Trump's defense of himself from insurrection-related charges, and wants his court to allow Trump to defend himself only as Smith wants him to defend himself. NEW: Jack Smith, in likely vain attempt to keep March 4 trial date, filed another pretrial related to what the jury should be allowed to consider. (All pretrial deadlines now on...

    It’s all about protecting the Big Guy.When James Comer wondered on CNN whether Special Counsel David Weiss had indicted Hunter Biden on nine tax-related charges to protect him from having to be deposed in the House Oversight Committee, Jake Tapper snarkily responded: “Yes, the classic rubric. He indicted him to protect him. I got it.”Well, yes. Indicting a person on lesser charges can often protect him from more serious ones. It happens all the time. In this case, though, “him” isn’t Hunter, it’s Joe.Weiss failed to indict Hunter for failing to register as a foreign agent or failing to pay...

    Predictably, the big takeaway from Hunter Biden’s indictment by Dem media is that it is “far from helpful to the Republicans.” “It never mentions President Biden, not even indirectly,” said the New York Times, “and provides no evidence linking the misdeeds of the son to the father.” It’s as if they live in a cave without access to modern communications. The reason the president has gone unmentioned after a five-year investigation into Hunter’s role in the family influence-peddling racket is that the DOJ, like most of the media, corruptly protected him. As IRS whistleblowers Joseph Ziegler and Gary Shapley keep...

    We should've known. Wait. Some of us did — or at least predicted it — from the beginning, with "it" being the nefarious powers that be in the federal government would do their damnedest to shield Joe and Hunter Biden from the justice they likely deserve for the crimes they likely committed. As I reported on Friday night, legal scholar and Fox News legal analyst Jonathan Turley called Hunter's Thursday indictment on nine tax counts — including four counts of failure to pay taxes, two counts of filing false tax documents, two counts of failure to file taxes, and one...

    Because Trump may again be POTUS, Hunter Biden gets to skate on the nine tax charges, some felonies. He will see no punishment because the indictment against him is only meant to distract from the accusations that we have a two-tier justice system—one for Republicans and one for Democrats. Hunter will skate because he is the son of the man in the Oval Office, and because he is a Democrat… and for the most part Democrats don’t serve time. Joe will pardon him, but before that happens, stalling tactics will keep him out of prison for any significant length of...

Wulfsohn, Paul Steinhauser, Brooke Singman, Thomas Catenacci Fox NewsMultiple candidates hoping to replace Joe Biden as president in next year's presidential election pulled no punches Friday in response to the indictment of his son, Hunter, a day earlier. The indictment, which was handed down Thursday by DOJ Special Counsel David Weiss in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, included nine charges alleging a "four-year scheme" when Hunter did not pay his federal income taxes from January 2017 to October 2020 while also filing false tax reports....

    Special Counsel David Weiss unveiled nine federal tax-related charges against Hunter Biden on Thursday more than four months after a plea deal was derailed by a federal judge. The Biden son will return to court facing three new felony charges and six misdemeanor counts relating to tax evasion and filing false returns, but he will escape penalties related to foreign influence-peddling that involves his father in the White House. Unsurprisingly, Weiss refuses to charge Hunter for foreign influence-peddling, registered foreign agent violations, or anything related to the Biden family’s Burisma shakedown when Joe Biden was Vice President.Weiss pretends to crack...

    The charges are so straightforward and stale, it is incomprehensible they were not brought against Hunter Biden in 2019 or early 2020.A federal grand jury in California returned a multi-count indictment against Hunter Biden late Thursday, charging the president’s son with multiple tax offenses. While the indictment detailed some sordid spending sprees by Hunter Biden, the crimes charged were so basic that to say Special Counsel David Weiss opted for the low-hanging fruit would be an understatement. Weiss instead limited the charges to the crimes that fell into his lap. The simplicity of the charges underscores the protect-Biden racket that...

    The 56-page indictment of Hunter Biden for tax evasion makes for racy reading, with the special counsel describing a four-year criminal pattern directed at maintaining Biden’s “extravagant lifestyle.” That lifestyle included massive expenses for strippers, sex clubs, fast cars and other distractions. The steps taken by Hunter to evade taxes are impressive, but not nearly as impressive as the efforts of the Justice Department to evade any direct implications for his father, President Biden.

    Former President Donald Trump doubled down on calling New York Attorney General Letitia James’ case against him a “witch hunt meant to influence an election” after an expert witness testified there was “no evidence” the 2024 presidential candidate committed fraud.“My main finding is that there is no evidence whatsoever of any accounting fraud,” Eli Bartov, an accounting professor at New York University, told the court on Thursday. James, a Democrat who campaigned on the promise to sue Trump, filed a civil case alleging the Republican, his children, and the Trump Organization “grossly” inflated their assets in financial statements by billions...
