Talk about a judicial piece of crap. I have done jury duty on two cases. The judge gave specific instructions. It was a domestic case. Not even that violent, but more of a mind game. In fact, after hearing the case I felt sorry for both parties. Two people having a bad day with words exchanged, some animated yelling with potential threats, then both parties hid. One in the house and one outside the house. A bad day led to a conviction. AS a juror, I could not use the rational that the two were having a bad day and needed time apart. Therefore a conviction. A bad spot on the record.
Following the Michael Sussmann case, which evidence provided a definite guilty charge of lying to the FBI, an acquittal was passed on by the jury it is asked what happened. Here is a quote from the Jury Forewoman, ““I don’t think it should have been prosecuted,” she said of the case. “There are bigger things that affect the nation than a possible lie to the FBI.” “We broke it down, and it did not pan out in the government’s favor.”
Which leads me to ask this question, what were the instructions to the jury from the judge?
She declined to say in which ways she thought the government succeeded. She said those who would complain about the result weren’t in the jury room.
Since all other commentators are comparing General Michael Flynn, I will be different. Let’s talk about Martha Stewart. From https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/martha-stewart-sentenced I quote “Martha Stewart's sentence, five months in jail and two years of probation, including five months of house arrest, came after she was convicted on charges of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and lying to investigators about a stock sale.
The sale in question, of stock in a company called Imclone, was made in December 2001, shortly before Imclone announced bad news that sent its share prices tumbling. But Stewart was never charged or convicted on charges of insider trading.”
The pinup speaks for itself. There is no justice in the swamp. If this keeps up, the only salvation for justice in Washington DC would be the same result that came to Sodom and Gomorrah. There should be no district court in Washington DC. It is too tainted by what it is.
I rest with the message on the pinup.
