  • We Can Count on Bob Mueller to Recuse, But Only When the Time is Right

    In an absurdly hostile interview with Fox News’s trending-left host Chris Wallace on Sunday morning, Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow emphatically stated that the President is “not under investigation” by special counsel Bob Mueller. This runs contrary, of course, to the fake Washington Post report from last Wednesday, which cited five anonymous “sources” who assured the Post’s fake reporters that President Trump is indeed the subject of the investigation. Wallace was incredulous, since he apparently still believes the Post is a real news source, and others in the fake news media spent much of the day tut-tutting about Mr. Sekulow’s contention....

    The NAACP’s legal group has sent a letter to a Missouri judge asking that a new grand jury convene to consider indicting former Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown back in August. On November 24, a grand jury decided not to indict Wilson for killing Brown, and as a result, already riled protesters and activists took to the streets seeking justice. Now, in the almost two months since the decision was reached, the NAACP’s Legal Defense and Educational Fund has penned an open letter to Missouri Judge Maura McShane asking that a...
  • Ferguson grand juror sues over gag order

    A member of the grand jury that declined to indict the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown asked a federal court Monday to remove a lifetime gag order preventing jurors from discussing the case. The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit on behalf of an unnamed juror who wants to speak about the investigation but would be in violation of Missouri law by doing so. The lawsuit also questions St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch’s characterization that “all grand jurors believed that there was no support for any charges.” The suit was filed against McCulloch, who...
  • Surprise! Perry Grand Juror Is Also a Partisan Democrat Activist

    PJ Media ^ | 8/20/2012 | Bryan Preston (The PJ Tatler).
    Tuesday night the Houston Chronicle published a story about the grand jury that indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Those grand jurors who spoke with the Chronicle broke the law to do so, and they knew that they were breaking the law. They claimed that they were speaking to the newspaper to counter Gov. Perry’s “spin” on the case. That’s not the job of a grand jury, by the way. One of them is a woman named Rho Chalmers. Chalmers tried to get around her lawbreaking by attempting to build this wall of implausible deniability. Rho Chalmers, who name matches that...

    I remember growing up and always hearing my parents and their friends talk about one pivotal moment in their lives. They remembered exactly where they were at that point. Exactly who told them the news. Exactly how they felt once it all sunk in. When President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, everyone who was alive during that time remembers. One year ago, today, was our generation’s moment. It was late on a Saturday night. Some of us were out to dinner. Some of us were home with our families. Some of us were still shopping. Some of us...
  • Book review: 'The Price of Silence' only tells one side of Duke lacrosse scandal (DukeLax)

    The (Raleigh, NC) News & Observer ^ | April 20, 2014 | Joseph Neff
    The Duke lacrosse case was a spectacular scandal – a cause célèbre that had the country abuzz about race, class and gender. Three wealthy Duke students, all of them white, were charged with raping a poor black woman during a spring break party at a scruffy rental house in Durham. Then the whole mess imploded in real time, in the national media, due to prosecutorial misconduct. North Carolina, of all places in America, was perhaps the most fertile soil for a case that ended with the state attorney general declaring the three players innocent and state regulators disbarring the prosecutor,...

    In March 2006, Crystal Gail Mangum, a student at North Carolina Central University, who worked as a stripper and an escort, accused three members of the Duke lacrosse team — Reade Seligmann, Collin Finnerty, and David Evans — of raping her at an off-campus party. The case captivated the country, with the media breathlessly reporting the statements of prosecutor Mike Nifong, who was later fired, disbarred and imprisoned for 24 hours, and then those of the players' defense attorneys in a seemingly endless loop of contradictions. In April 2007, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper said there was "no credible...

    Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained documents proving that the Department of Justice played a major behind-the-scenes role in organizing protests against George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is on trial for second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in February 2012. Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the DOJ on April 24, 2012. According to the documents JW received, a little-known DOJ unit called the Community Relations Service deployed to Sanford, FL to organize and manage rallies against Zimmerman. Among JW’s findings: •March 25 – 27, 2012, CRS spent $674.14 upon being “deployed to...

    The Orlando Sentinel ^ | May 13, 2013 | Susan Jacobsen
    The prosecution in the George Zimmerman murder case has asked a judge to prohibit testimony about shooting victim Trayvon Martin's personal life, including whether he had been suspended from school, used marijuana or been in a fight. The information is irrelevant and would prejudice a jury, the state contends in the motion, filed late Friday. The motion also asks the judge to disallow: •Screen names used by Trayvon on social media. •The fact that he wore or owned a set of gold teeth. •The contents of text messages received or sent by Trayvon before Feb. 26, the day he died....

    The New York Times ^ | March 5, 2013 | Lizette Alvarez
    MIAMI — George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin, is all but certain to take his case directly to a jury on June 10 and skip a highly anticipated pretrial self-defense hearing, his lawyer said Tuesday. At a “Stand Your Ground” hearing, the judge is tasked with weighing whether to grant immunity from prosecution under a Florida law that gives people who believe they are in imminent danger of being killed or seriously hurt the benefit of the doubt to protect themselves. A defendant who claims self-defense in Florida has a right to...
  • Authorities still don't know what's on Trayvon Martin's cellphone

    The Orlando Sentinel ^ | November 24, 2012 | Rene Stutzman and Jeff Weiner
    Despite all the investigation, public outrage and scrutiny over the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, at least one major piece of evidence has not yet been thoroughly analyzed: his cellphone. Police found it at the scene the night Trayvon was shot, its battery dead. Authorities tried but failed to download data from the phone, then asked his father, Tracy Martin, for the security code so they could unlock it. They didn't get the code and turned the phone over to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. A crime-lab specialist there had only limited success accessing the messages, photos and other...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's the case that captured national attention: the neighborhood watchman vs. the unarmed teenager. Was it self-defense or second-degree murder? Now, just days before a big pre-trial hearing in the case against George Zimmerman, his defense team has dropped a bombshell, blasting State Attorney Angela Corey and her office. The defense says the state isn't releasing all its evidence, using words like "haphazard and cavalier" when describing the state's handling of the case. To get a little perspective on these allegations, we went to local defense attorney, Randy Reep. He said, "That allegation is concerning because you...

    The lawyer for Trayvon Martin’s parents harshly criticized efforts by George Zimmerman’s attorneys to obtain the school records and Facebook information for the deceased 17-year-old high school student, saying they were irrelevant to the case. “Zimmerman’s lawyers are attempting to assassinate Trayvon Martin’s character,” said Benjamin Crump, in an interview with BET.com. “Whatever Trayvon had on his Facebook page or whatever was in his school records have nothing to do with why Zimmerman shot him.” Crump said he is seeking to obtain Zimmerman’s medical records. “The medical condition and medical history of George Zimmerman is far more relevant to the...

    Unnerved by an unspoken mix of political bias and racial queasiness, the major media have chosen to know as little about Trayvon Martin as they know about Barack Obama. As a case in point, consider this boy vs. man fable spun by the New York Times' Charles Blow: A boy's blood had been spilled on a rain-soaked patch of grass behind a row of mustard-colored condominiums by a man who had pursued him against the advice of 911 dispatchers. That man carried a 9-millimeter handgun. The boy carried a bag of candy. Blow was writing seven weeks after Trayvon's death....

    Forget about Mad Max — Mad Gloria is in the house. High-profile feminist lawyer Gloria Allred blasted foulmouthed Mel Gibson over his recent racist tirade against his ex. “If in fact these quotes are accurate, Mr. Gibson’s statements are appalling,” Allred told Us Weekly. “They exhibit the worst kind of racism and sexism. They clearly demonstrate a woman-hating temperament, which, in my opinion, is dangerous to women......”
