    This is what tyranny looks like. On Monday night lawless Obama Judge Tanya Chutkan refused the Trump defense team’s efforts to subpoena members of the House January 6 Committee for testimony. Why? Why would she possibly do this? Obviously, the far left judge does not want the truth to be revealed about January 6 and she will not allow the Trump team to prove their case. This is a completely lawless court. The Trump defense team alleges that documents, including transcripts of testimonies, are missing from the Jan. 6 Subcommittee. Judge Chutkan WILL NOT allow Trump access to these lost...

    Former President Donald Trump’s defense team filed a motion for mistrial in New York Attorney General Letitia James’s civil fraud prosecution against him. At the core of the filing is the ongoing concern Trump and his lawyers have over public perception and political bias – especially as it pertains to Judge Arthur Engoron, who is presiding over the case, and his law clerk Allison Greenfield. “This appearance of bias threatens both Defendants’ rights and the integrity of the judiciary as an institution,” Trump’s attorneys argued in the filing, adding: “Greenfield’s unprecedented role in the trial and extensive, public partisan activities,...

Habba told Bartiromo that she would be filing for a mistrial but said the judge was the same judge who issued a gag order.

What is going on here?” The Gateway Pundit sat as the lone observer in the courtroom for nearly the entire duration of...

    A federal judge officially declared a mistrial in a federal case involving two doctors who were accused of conspiring to help Russia in its war with Ukraine by providing private medical records. Prosecutors accused Anna Gabrielian, a Johns Hopkins anesthesiologist, and Jamie Lee Henry, her active-duty Army officer husband, of attempting to become Russian assets after they allegedly shared private and "exploitable" health records of their patients to an undercover FBI agent, according to WBALTV 11. The couple was arrested in 2022 after allegedly meeting with someone they thought was from the Russian embassy, but who was actually an FBI...

    May 1 (UPI) -- Former President Donald Trump on Monday morning requested a mistrial in E. Jean Carroll's federal civil lawsuit against him, charging that U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan has made numerous "unfair" rulings against him In an 18-page letter, Trump's lead attorney Joe Tacopina cited multiple rulings by Kaplan, which he said prejudiced the jury against the former president, who is accused of raping Carroll, a former Elle columnist, in a dressing room and harming her reputation by alleging her claims were false.

    The question was benign: How did you know the defendant? But the answer from a witness — that she met Christian Bey when he moved in across the street after his release from prison — was enough to cause a mistrial. Bey, 34, was on trial in connection with the shooting death of off-duty Pittsburgh police Officer Calvin Hall in July 2019. Hall, 36, was shot on Monticello Street on July 14, 2019, following an argument with a group of people who lived there. Police said Hall had walked away when Bey, whose mother was among the people fighting with...

    The FBI director knows a lot about issues that matter to the Biden regime and the media. But he isn’t so savvy when it comes to issues that matter to Americans. It was time for him to fly. FBI Director Christopher Wray, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee for the first time since July 2021, insisted he had to leave the hearing by 1:30 p.m. sharp. (It began at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.) Despite leading a scandal-ridden agency quickly losing the trust of the American people and congressional Republicans, Wray somehow believes that setting aside less than four hours...

I don't think it should have been prosecuted," she said, The Washington Times reported. "There are bigger things that affect the nation than a possible lie to the FBI." Special Counsel John Durham charged Sussmann with lying to the FBI about his work with the Clinton campaign and a former tech firm executive when he provided the agency with information on the since-debunked Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

    Despite a humiliating defeat in what the Justice Department considered one of its biggest domestic terror investigations in recent history, federal prosecutors announced they will re-try two men who were not acquitted last week on charges of conspiring to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020. Chief District Court Judge Robert Jonker declared a mistrial on April 8 after a jury in western Michigan could not agree on the guilt of Adam Fox, the so-called ringleader, and Barry Croft, Jr. related to the alleged plot; two other men, Daniel Harris and Brandon Caserta, were found not guilty on all charges...

    CHICAGO — Jussie Smollett’s attorneys asked for a mistrial Thursday after the judge called their evidence irrelevant in front of the jury and “physically lunged” at one of the actor’s lawyers. The odd fracas came in the midst of the defense’s cross-examination of Olabinjo Osundairo, who claims he was paid to help Smollett stage the hate crime, as attorney Tamara Walker grilled him about his alleged homophobia and past derogatory remarks toward suspected gay men. Osundairo, 30, had just acknowledged he used the word “fruity ass” to refer to a man he suspected was gay and Walker asked if Smollett,...

For everyone asking “what is handbrake” is used for compressing & converting videos. It was found on Kraus’s laptop meaning he may have purposely converted the video to the lower resolution version using handbrake. “Handbrake was on one of the prosecutions laptops since January 2021. This can be used to compress footage. Krause lied when he said he didn’t know how to do any of those actions. I’ve moved from negligence or incompetence...

    Judge Bruce Schroeder of the Kenosha County Court accused prosecutors of a “grave constitutional violation” in the murder trial of Kyle Rittenhouse on Wednesday morning after they tried to comment on his earlier reactions to testimony in the case. Rittenhouse stunned observers by taking the witness stand in his own defense, something that defendants rarely do in such trials. He recalled the events of Aug. 25 last year, when he fired on members of a mob attacking him during a Black Lives Matter riot. As he began to describe the events leading to the shootings, he broke down, and the...
