BOSTON (AP) — An FBI agent overheard Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev make a "statement to his detriment" when his sister visited him in prison, federal prosecutors said Friday.

Prosecutors did not reveal what Tsarnaev said, but they objected to what they called an attempt by Tsarnaev's lawyers to suppress the statement....

[snip]

Tsarnaev, 20, has pleaded not guilty in the terrorist attack at last year's marathon. Two pressure cooker bombs were placed near the marathon finish line, killing three people and wounding more than 260....

[snip]

Tsarnaev's lawyers say the presence of the FBI agent during prison visits by Tsarnaev's two sisters "has thwarted the defense ability to develop important mitigation information"... [snip] including evidence on "family dysfunction, mental illness and the impact of family chaos on the defendant as he grew up."

So this is what, Holder’s peeps setting up a mistrial before it ever goes there?

Shirley, this is the first time I have ever heard of a story like this, because for reasons, instances like this are buried deep in court and case files.

WTF. Holder’s peeps at work.

I’m sure that Tsarnaev doesn’t give an Islamic damn about what he says.

And do his lawyers actually think that he is innocent?

They can’t be that stupid, or can they?

Holder’s peeps at work...

Holder AND his peeps represented terrorists way back in BØ time (BØ = In the Year Before Our Ø). They surely want to continue their work, and know how to do it regardless of the actual role in play, from defense lawyer, to prosecution lawyer, to judge to court stenographer. They ALL Have a role to play to achieve their ends.

Leftists have always felt terrorists were cool. Americans should think about that before they elect them to run the country.

They care if he did it. They intended to do anything to get him off. Next they’ll sue for the death of his brother.

So who has been arrested for letting the terrorist
in without a PASSPORT?

Anyone?

Anyone arrested for ignoring the warning of attack
by the Russians?

Anyone?

NOPE.

The First Moslem Tyrant-by-Fraud supports terrorists,
along with the DH”S” and DO”J”.
The America which we knew is DEAD, finished,
because of the CRIMINALS ISSA and CUMMINGS who
laughed, partied, and got drunk.

I presume that the enemy soldier Tsarnaev wants to use his trial as a forum to brag about his tactical success, his brother’s martyrdom, and the ultimate triumph of Islam.

It’s cute that our leaders are treating this as a criminal matter, as if the whole panoply of “admissions against interest” and “rules of evidence” are significant to Tsarnaev, when they almost certainly are not.

Step one is to drop the “terrorist” label, and the absurdly misleading “war on terror”. Using the term “enemy soldiers” might help Americans awaken from their slumber, and it’s much, much more accurate.

“mitigate”....... to appear to earn their fees, the lawyers must appear to be doing something. Their list of possible courses is short, but to mitigate is to appear to be doing something of value

The Brits have within little more than a year since the crime have tried and sentenced the Muslim terrorists who murdered a British soldier. Sadly the Brits no longer have capital punishment.

The Boston Bomber will hang around for years before going to trial and even if he gets the death sentence it will well be decades before justice is done. Given the evidence against Tsarnaev there is no reason his trial should be delayed more than a year. If there were swift justice he would be executed before the next Marathon. A public hanging on Boston Common at the start of the Marathon would be fitting for this puke.

In the late 1990s, while the hijackers were training for the 9-11 attacks IN America, BJ Clinton had the FBI investigating a phony "rash" of "racist" church fires in the south.

Democrats will not protect you. They will target you as political "traitors" and manufacture crimes and witchhunts to pursue you.

Still waiting for the terrorist on the Obama transition team, Nadil Hasan, to be executed for the murders of which he was found guilty in a court of law.

And do his lawyers actually think that he is innocent?

That's what criminal defense has sunk to in this country -- not doing the best you can for your defendant who is obviously guilty; but rather trying to find ways to beat the rap. I was sickened by that crap about "family dysfunction, mental illness and the impact of family chaos on the defendant as he grew up." So what? He plotted, built a bomb, killed and terrorized the marathon attendees, killed a cop, then ran over his brother with a car; and now apparently he's totally all jihadist and unrepentant.

Unless his defense lawyers want to put Islam on trial, I really don't see what his upbringing has to do with his defense at this point.

Total bull crap.

A crime is a crime based on what you do, not why you did it.

Tsarnaev’s attorneys are court-appointed. The court no doubt made sure to appoint the best skilled defense attorneys available. They have to work with the case they were dealt, and for a relatively low hourly rate. Not to do everything they possibly can to free or mitigate the charge/punishment to their client would be a serious ethical lapse. This is how the US judicial system works, every benefit conceivable to the charged party.

When they say they’re looking for “mitigation”or “mitigating factors” it means they know the dirtbag “done it.” But they’re looking for things that might explain and excuse his dirtbag behavior. Maybe his Momma was ugly? Maybe he never got terlet trained? Maybe he just thot he was testing his new pressure cooker? Maybe his religion still had him living in the 12th century? Oh, wait. that just might work?

Tsarnaev is more trustworthy than anyone in the Obama Regime. I don’t believe what they say about this case or anything else.
