  • Federal Judge Threatens to Punish Imprisoned J6ers by Adding Enhancements to Remaining Convictions if SCOTUS Reverses ‘Obstruction’ Statute

    The Gateway Pundit ^ | March 28, 2024 | Cristina Laila
    The Supreme Court is expected to issue a decision on Fischer v United States this summer which means hundreds of J6 cases could be upended. Biden’s corrupt DOJ has charged more than 300 J6ers with 18 USC §1512(c)(2). Additionally, two of the four charges against Trump in Jack Smith’s DC case are conspiracy to obstruct so the Supreme Court’s ruling could torpedo the special counsel’s case against Trump as well. Last week US Attorney from DC Matthew Graves fired a warning shot to the US Supreme Court – and J6ers serving time for 18 USC §1512(c)(2), the ‘obstruction’ statute pending...

    On February 8, 2024 former Special Counsel Robert Hur declined to prosecute Joe Biden for willfully mishandling classified information while he was a private citizen. "Our investigation uncovered evidence that Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen. These materials included (1) marked classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, and (2) notebooks containing Mr. Biden's handwritten entries about issues of national security and foreign policy implicating sensitive intelligence sources and methods. FBI agents recovered these materials from the garage, offices, and basement den in Mr. Biden's Wilmington, Delaware...

    ABC ^ | March 12, 2024
    A transcript of President Joe Biden's interview with the special counsel who investigated his handling of classified information contradicts the president's characterization of an exchange about the death of his son, Beau Biden, from brain cancer. "There's even a reference that I don't remember when my son died," a visibly irate Biden told reporters hours after special counsel Robert Hur's report was made public last month. "How in the hell dare he raise that? Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself: It wasn't any of their damn business." But according to an ABC News review of...
  • Developing: Judge Cannon Admonishes Special Counsel’s Prosecutor, Says Jack Smith’s Proposed July 8 Trial Date in Classified Docs Case “Unrealistic”

    In a blow to Jack Smith, Judge Aileen Cannon on Friday said his proposed July 8 trial date in the classified documents case against Trump is “unrealistic.” ....Snip.... Friday’s hearing in Florida was about possibly moving the classified documents trial back until late summer. Special Counsel Jack Smith on Thursday proposed a new trial date for the classified documents case playing out in a federal court in Southern Florida. The classified documents trial was scheduled to begin on May 20, however, Jack Smith asked for the trial to begin on July 8 in a court filing on Thursday. This new...

    Below is a slightly expanded version of my New York Post column on the report that President Joe Biden, not Special Counsel Robert Hur, raised the death of Beau Biden during his interview. The report, now confirmed by various media outlets, suggests that the President lied to the press and the public in his controversial press conference after the release of the Special Counsel’s findings. Here is the column: In his press conference following the Special Counsel report on his retention of classified documents, President Joe Biden lashed out at Special Counsel Robert Hur over allegations that he has such...

    President Joe Biden took to the microphone for an unannounced address on Thursday night, following the release of the politically devastating Special Counsel report that said he "willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen." While the report stated that such actions "present serious risks to national security,” Biden will not face charges because he presents himself as an “elderly man with a poor memory” and it would be difficult to convince a jury he is guilty of a serious felony because to commit such a crime “requires a mental state of...

    Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report revealed President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified information, indicating a pattern of carelessness dating back to at least 2010. The report highlighted a significant cognitive decline in Biden, making his handling of classified materials politically damaging. “Classified information of any kind may only be reviewed or discussed in secured locations, and never in a public place such as on a train,” Cynthia Hogan wrote. “The [classified briefing] books must remain in your custody, or that of your cleared staff, at all times unless they are in your safe. Classified material must be returned to your...

    They say success in politics has much to do with timing. Hitting the right issue in the right way at the right moment can make a campaign. Failing to do so can break it. If that’s true, then the person at the Biden re-elect who hit “send” on a fundraising email Thursday, subject line “Do you remember how you felt?,” while the president was in the middle of an impromptu press conference denying he had problems with mental acuity may want to start looking for another job. If there was ever an example of bad timing, that’s it. How can...

    So, Jill Biden has lashed out at special counsel Robert Hur over his report that let her husband off the hook for willfully retaining and sharing classified files — due to the commander in chief’s total lack of recall while being questioned. It’s as predictable as it is risible. “I hope you can imagine how it felt to read that attack — not just as Joe’s wife, but as Beau’s mother,” the First Lady lamented on in a campaign email on the weekend. “I don’t know what this Special Counsel was trying to achieve… I can’t imagine why someone would...

    One striking anecdote emerges from Special Counsel Robert Hur’s voluminous 300 plus page report on Biden’s misappropriation of classified documents.In interviews with Biden, the Special Counsel found that the memory of the President of the United States had “significant limitations” and that he didn’t know “when his term ended”, “when his term began” and “did not remember, even within several years, when his son Beau died.”If there are any two things that a man ought to remember, it’s when his son died and when he ascended to the vice presidency and when he became a private citizen again.Now a man...

    From a political point of view, Thursday’s Special Counsel report is a perfect storm of bad news for His Fraudulency Joe Biden and an equally perfect storm of good news for former President Donald Trump. Trump could not have asked for a better outcome than the one delivered by Special Counsel Robert Hur. We’ll take these one by one: Our investigation uncovered evidence that President Biden willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen.

    Special Counsel Robert Hur might not be recommending criminal charges for Joe Biden as we reported earlier, but the report is devastating all the same. We also reported earlier in the week how the Biden team was worried about the reaction to what would come out, and now I see why. They should be worried. The report not only eviscerates Biden, but it blows open the double standard yet again compared to how they're treating him versus how they're treating former President Donald Trump. First, it should be noted that Hur found that Biden willfully retained and even disclosed classified...

    Special Counsel Robert Hur described President Biden as a "sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory," and said he would bring no criminal charges against the president after a months-long investigation into his improper retention of classified documents related to national security. Hur's report was made public Thursday afternoon. Hur has been investigating Biden’s improper retention of classified records since last year. Those records included classified documents about military and foreign policy in Afghanistan, among other records related to national security and foreign policy which Hur said implicated "sensitive intelligence sources and methods."

    President Joe Biden angrily attacked Special Counsel Robert Hur during his press conference on Thursday for mentioning in a recent report that the president had trouble remembering when his son Beau died. As Breitbart News reported, Robert Hur said in his report that the president has suffered from cognitive decline, which has affected his memory. Hur even used this as a basis to recommend that he not be prosecuted for “willfully” retaining classified documents. Per the report:

He highlighted the differences between the investigations into him and former President Trump, then took questions. He addressed the report’s labeling of him as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” saying, “I am well-meaning, and I’m an elderly man, and I know what the hell I’m doing.”

    On Feb. 6, U.S. District Court Judge Aileen Cannon ordered the unsealing of some names and information about government officials, granting in part a motion by former President Donald Trump to unseal a partially redacted version of his motion to compel prosecutors to hand over evidence.“The parties are reminded of the strong presumption of public access in criminal proceedings,” the judge wrote, ordering that no unclassified material in the case be filed under seal going forward.All filings under full or partial seal will require approval from the judge in the future, unless there are “clear and supported cases of risk...

    An explosive defense motion filed in the classified documents case detailed extensive collaboration between prosecutors and top Biden officials to get Trump. But what does Jack Smith want to hide?Before the appointment of Special Counsel Jack Smith in November 2022, Joe Biden’s Department of Justice was in the process of conducting two separate criminal investigations into Donald Trump: his attempts to “overturn” the 2020 election and his alleged mishandling of sensitive government files. Smith took over both matters to demonstrate the DOJ’s “independence” from politics, the public was told, although he took with him prosecutors and investigators already assigned to...

    Judge Aileen Cannon denied without prejudice Special Counsel Jack Smith’s motion to compel Trump to disclose his defense strategy in the classified documents case in Florida. In November, Jack Smith tried to force Trump to disclose his decision on whether he would use an “advice-of-counsel” defense in the classified documents case. This could have forced Trump to waive attorney-client privilege. Thankfully Judge Aileen Cannon, a Trump appointee, denied Jack Smith’s request. “Denying without prejudice Special Counsel’s Motion to Compel Disclosure Regarding Advice-of-Counsel Defense. The Court has reviewed the Motion, Defendants’ Opposition, the Special Counsel’s Reply, and is fully advised in...
