  • Likelihood of Trump Indictment in Manhattan Fades as Grand Jury Wraps Up

    When some two dozen New Yorkers filed into a Manhattan courthouse this week to finish out their grand jury service, the case against a man who would have been the world’s most prominent criminal defendant was no longer before them. That man, Donald J. Trump, was facing potential criminal charges from the grand jury this year over his business practices. But in the weeks since the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin L. Bragg, stopped presenting evidence to the jurors about Mr. Trump, new signs have emerged that the former president will not be indicted in Manhattan in the foreseeable future —...

    Biden’s radical plan is about to hit a wall.Socialist Democrats along with Biden have been using the violence committed by a few on January 6th at the U.S. Capitol against anyone even remotely involved, even if they didn’t take part in the rioting.They are using lawfare to attempt to hurt Republicans, but, it’s not going so well.An Arizona judge’s decision to reject an attempt to keep lawmakers off the election ballot because of their alleged involvement in a Jan. 6, 2021, “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol likely presages the outcome of similar efforts in other states, according to the attorney...

    The mainstream media today reported that three companies connected to far-right radio host Alex Jones filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy amid lawsuits related to false claims about the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting. The mainstream elites have been targeting Alex Jones and Infowars for years now. Their allies in Big Tech also targeted Alex Jones and colluded to take him off their platforms on the same day back in August 2018. On Monday Alex Jones released a response to today’s media attacks. Alex Jones vows he will not let the corporate media win. Alex Jones: When you see these headlines out...

    Far-right wing website InfoWars on Sunday filed for voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas in the face of multiple defamation lawsuits. Chapter 11 bankruptcy procedures put a hold on all civil litigation matters and allow companies to prepare turnaround plans while remaining operational. Alex Jones, founder of InfoWars, was found liable for damages in a trio of lawsuits last year filed after he falsely claimed that the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre was a hoax. Jones claimed the shooting, in which 20 children and six school employees were shot dead...

    Former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal said Friday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that the “rot” that led to the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, was not just from former President Donald Trump but other leaders who should be investigated by the Department of Justice. Guest-host anchor Jason Johnson said, “We’re starting to see more incriminating evidence leak out. We’re seeing just how deep the plan to steal the election of 2020 was. Newly revealed text messages obtained by CNN show Senator Mike Lee and Congressman Chip Roy going right to Mark Meadows in full support of the claims of...

    Elon Musk hit a nerve in Washington DC as the Biden-Harris regime scrambles to intimidate him following his announced plans to acquire Twitter and make it a private company.

  • Is Merrick Garland finally ready to indict Donald Trump Over the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol?

    The Hill ^ | 03/15/2022 | James D. Zirin
    The media have been quick to rubbish Attorney General Merrick Garland for his failure so far to indict former President Trump over the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. They have tarred him with epithets worthy of Trump himself, such as "Merrick the Mild" and "Merrick the Meek." And a host of former prosecutors and law professors have criticized his inaction, saying that Garland needs to indict Trump to vindicate the rule of law. We don't know for certain, but it appears that Garland's Justice Department has yet to convene a grand jury to investigate the affair. Were they...

    On December 20th, Hillary Clinton Operative and Attorney Marc Elias tweeted out a shocking Un-American plan to use the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution to prevent conservative Republican stalwarts from running in the 2022 elections. Elias suggested banning Republicans for being “insurrectionists.” And anyone who confronts the regime should be labeled an “insurrectionist.” China does this same thing in Hong Kong.

    Left-wing ideologue David Brock has launched a “dark money” effort to disbar, publicly shame, and impoverish more than 100 lawyers who participated in filing post-election legal challenges to the 2020 presidential election results. Axios reported the effort, named the “65 Project” because of the number of post-election lawsuits, is funded by anonymous donors and aimschallenges. Axios noted: A dark money group with ties to Democratic Party heavyweights will spend millions this year to expose and try to disbar more than 100 lawyers who worked on Donald Trump’s post-election lawsuits, people involved with the effort tell Axios.

    On Wednesday, New York State Court Justice Joel Cohen ruled that NY Attorney General Letitia James cannot dissolve the National Rifle Association. Cohen is a Justice on the New York State Court in Manhattan. Reuters reported that Cohen ruled that James’ allegations of NRA financial malfeasance deal with private affairs within the organization, not with the group’s members. He noted that James’ “complaint does not allege the type of public harm that is the legal linchpin for imposing the ‘corporate death penalty.'” Cohen left the door open for James could continue to pursue NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre’s removal from the...

    Two top Democrats are asking the General Services Administration to terminate the lease of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. A letter sent Thursday by New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney, chairwoman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Virginia Rep. Gerald Connolly, chairman of the Subcommittee on Government Operations, argued that the lease should be terminated in light of the Trump Organization's longtime accounting firm saying it could not stand by nine years of financial statements prepared for the company. "New information, including that former President Trump may have submitted inaccurate financial information to the federal government...

    Organizers of the “Freedom Convoy” that has gridlocked downtown Ottawa for the last week are facing a potential $9.8-million class-action lawsuit over continuous vehicle horn noise, filed on behalf of residents of the city’s downtown core. According to a statement of claim filed with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on Friday by lawyer Paul Champ, the lawsuit is seeking $4.8 million for “private nuisance” and another $5 million in “punitive damages.” The statement of claim focuses on the honking as one of the main “coordinated” tactics convoy participants have used to make their presence known, alleging that the use...

    Editor’s Note: Lawfare’s Board of Directors has published a post regarding this article and our editorial standards here. In the United States, the latest Iranian protests have sparked a kind of debate in which we argue fervently about whether the U.S. should tweet its support or just shut up. At the risk of making the Trump administration look moderate, I think we can choose between more than waving our hands and sitting on them. Remember, when the Iranian regime decided it didn’t like U.S. activities in Iraq, it found considerably more direct ways to express its disapproval. It just started...

    A new court filing by special counsel John Durham reveals that Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz concealed crucial information from Durham in connection with the ongoing prosecution of Michael Sussmann, a former attorney to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. The filing also reveals that Horowitz failed to disclose that his office is in possession of two cellphones used by former FBI general counsel James Baker. The phones may contain information that’s important to the Sussmann case, as well as to a separate criminal leak investigation of Baker that Durham personally conducted between 2017 and 2019. Horowitz first...

Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., and Ivanka Trump to appear for sworn testimony as part of the office’s ongoing civil investigation into the Trump Organization’s financial dealings.

As the papers filed today make clear, each of the individuals was directly involved in one or more transactions under review....

Two sources familiar with the investigation told CBS News that the unidentified ex of Gaetz (R-Fla.) is seen as a potential key witness in the case, with one source alleging that she has information related to both trafficking and obstruction of justice claims against the congressman.

It was confirmed the FBI had material which is located in an investigative file exempt from disclosure. Pfizer had communications with the FBI regarding "misinformation" as per its own admission. So why is the FBI in contact with Pfizer regarding journalists, especially given the Project Veritas reports which simply convey the exact words of Pfizer employees?

    One way to conduct a coup is to control who can run for elected office. Examples of this abound in autocracies and police states, with the most recent being China’s coup in Hong Kong. America’s progressive left is attempting the same in this country, by targeting popular Republicans to make them ineligible for election. Let’s start with the law and its origins. As a rule, the Constitution prevents Congress from prohibiting a person who meets the basic requirements of Article I § 2 (age, citizenship, residency) from competing in a federal election or being seated in government should they win....
