Wouldn’t this be a violation of Article One Section 9 of the Constitution?
Or maybe that only means Congress can’t do it, but the Derep State Star Chamber Kangaroo Court (otherwise known as the Department of Justice) can?
Yes, but those tolling issues are usually dealt with in the charging instrument or in a response to a motion to dismiss. This is the first time I’ve heard of getting a star chamber ex parte sealed order in this regard which was hidden from the defendant’s attorney even after he entered the case.
WHat? A judge can arbitrarily remove the statute of limitations. Can the same be done against Obama, Holder and Clinton?
That is supposed to be “Deep State” Not ‘Derep State’. in my post above.
This is ridiculous. Each new thing we hear is worse, and more utterly illegal, than the last. And do you know what it means, IMHO? Mueller and his gang of idiots and adulterers never, ever dreamed the Hillbot could lose, and they have committed about 20 times more crimes and illegal procedures than we've already seen. And there are way too many of them to cover up.
It won't be tomorrow, which I'd prefer. But Mueller is going to jail.
No US court is ever going to touch a member of the Deep State. Punishment would have to come from God or an irregular imposition of non-binding “law”.
I wonder if the ink was dry when he got them.
Five years of investigation and no indictments and then, Shazaam! new evidence suddenly appears to justify extending the statute of limitations. It seems to me Manafort and the judge should really be asking about a possible referral for prosecution of Mueller and his people for conspiracy to violate Manafort's civil rights.
Statute of Limitations doesn’t begin to run until forms (like tax returns and FBARs) are actually FILED. IOW - S of L does NOT run from due date.
So these claims are very odd.
I think we have another case of “journalism” masquerading as fact.
The defendant and his counsel are not informed of a secret order??
Positively Trumpian (cool tagline).
unfettered is still unfettered....
Who will rein-in the wild donkey....Mueller?
I’m an attorney, and the SoL cannot be suspended by the dictates of a prosecutor. The SoL can be “tolled” in certain circumstances (such as fraud), but suspended?
no one can “suspend” a statue of limitations ... total bullshit, garbage article ...
A secret court, suspending codified laws in secrecy, and the defendant doesn’t get to be the courtroom. What could be more American than that? /s
If this is true, we are in worse shape than we thought and the Republic is in serious danger. Secret dealing between the Omnipotent Special Counsel and the Courts to extend the filing date liability against a defendant is probably illegal if the defendant isnt informed and able to oppose the Special Counsel.
Double Secret Probation anyone?
Why do you post crap and send traffic to these Radical leftist ?
They Lie !
Dont avoid the question being asked .
Free Republic is not a Safe Space, despite what some may wish.
The brain said “deep”, but the fingers wanted to type “derp”?
