The Red Tie Brigade Veepstakes Challenge: Circumventing Trump's Gag Order

In 1974, Republican congressional leadership walked to the White House to tell a Republican criminal president of the United States to resign or be impeached. Now, congressional House leadership walked to a courthouse in New York to support a criminal former president of the United States. The corruption, corrosion, and compromise of the Republican Party is complete, as it has figuratively declared itself the pro-crime party.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Steve Bannon Loses His Appeal; Prison Term Dead Ahead

One of Donald Trump's right-hand men, Steve Bannon, was convicted of two counts of criminal contempt of Congress, and was sentenced to four months in prison. Unfortunately, a Trump-appointed judge, Carl Nichols, let Bannon remain free pending appeal. A DC appeals court just affirmed Bannon's convictions and gave him seven days to seek review by all of the appellate court judges (which is very likely to be rejected). Bannon is now one giant step closer to prison.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Judge Aileen Cannon Tries to "Catch and Kill" Donald Trump's Federal Trial in Florida

In a remarkable move, Trump-appointed judge Aileen Cannon vacated (cancelled) the May 20th trial date in Donald Trump's classified documents/obstruction of justice/espionage case in Florida and she announced that she'll be setting no trial date for the time being. This is particularly outrageous given that Trump's own lawyers had previously suggested an August trial date. Judge Cannon's conduct is reminiscent of some of the evidence in Trump's New York case: David Pecker, head of the National Enquirer tabloid magazine, was involved in a crooked scheme with Trump to catch and kill damaging stories about Trump to help him in the 2016 election. Now, it sure looks like Judge Cannon is catching and killing Trump's Florida case, which undoubtedly will help him in the 2024 presidential election.Regarding Judge Cannon's pro-Trump bias, the recusal cup runneth over. Hopefully, Special Counsel Jack Smith agrees, and finally files a motion to remove Judge Aileen "Pecker" Cannon from presiding over Trump's Florida prosecution.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

He did this to gain unfair advantage in the 2016 presidential election. Ironically, Donald Trump's own attorneys made crystal clear in court exactly how damaging Daniels' story was when they argued for a mistrial because her testimony was so damaging to Trump.

Judge Juan Merchan, the New York State court judge presiding over Donald Trump's criminal trial for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, found Trump guilty of a 10th count of criminal contempt of court for violating his gag order again. But once again, Judge Merchan only imposed a punishment of a $1000 fine. He also again warned Trump that, in the event he continues to violate the court's order, he could be jailed, "if necessary."

Hope Hicks Testifies as a Prosecution Witness in Trump's New York Election Interference Trial

Donald Trump's longtime aide and confidant, Hope Hicks, testified as a witness for the prosecution in Trump's New York State trial for falsifying business records to gain unfair advantage in the 2016 presidential election. There's been plenty of discussion about how damaging HIck's testimony was to the former president.

Judge Merchan Calls Out Trump's Gag Order Lie

It's not often that a presiding judge publicly calls out a defendant for lying outside the courtroom. Yet, that is precisely what New York State court judge Juan Merchan found himself having to do when Donald Trump claimed that a gag order prohibited him from testifying in his own defense at trial.As reported by The Hill, the "Judge in Trump's hush money (election interference) case clarifies gag order doesn't prevent ex-president from testifying."And perhaps the worst part - at least for the legal profession - is that, as Trump lied to the American people, his defense attorney stood by his side smiling and nodding.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Judge Merchan Finds Donald Trump in Criminal Contempt of Court

Donald Trump has many "firsts" to his credit: first former president criminally indicted by a state; first former president criminally indicted by the feds; first former president tried for his crimes; and now, first former president held in criminal contempt. Glenn reviews Judge Juan Merchan's order, finding - beyond a reasonable doubt - that Donald Trump violated New York law nine times by committing the crime of contempt of court.

Will the Supreme Court Buy Trump's Claim that He's Immune from Prosecution?

Donald Trump is indicted on 88 felony counts, across four jurisdictions, for crimes he committed - many of them while he was serving as president. Trump's lawyer, John Sauer, argued before the U.S. Supreme Court that Trump shouldn't be prosecuted for the crimes that were committed while he was in office. Specifically, Sauer said that the following acts are official presidential acts that would be covered by presidential immunity: ordering the assassination of a political rival; ordering the military to stage a coup to keep the president in power after he lost an election; and selling our nation's nuclear secrets to a foreign adversary. But Glenn says he's worried about something even worse than Sauer's deeply anti-democratic, anti-rule-of-law, and anti-constitutional arguments. Some of the Supreme Court Justices seemed to be seriously entertaining those arguments. And none more that Justice Samuel Alito.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Testimony of McDougal & Daniels May Be Some of the Most Damning Evidence Against Trump

Donald Trump, on trial in New York for 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, has denied any relationship with Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels. Yet he arranged for them to be paid more than $100,000 each to cover up information they could provide about him, so that information would not hurt his election chances in the 2016 presidential election. He then falsified business records to disguise the true nature of the payments he made to Daniels.Even though McDougal and Daniels took no part in falsifying those business records, Glenn explains why their testimony may prove to be some on the most damning evidence in the eyes of the jurors.

People are fully aware that Donald Trump says and posts anything that occurs to him in the moment, without any filter or regard for the truth of what he's saying or the consequences of the lies he tells. But now that Trump is moving from the court of public opinion into the actual courts of criminal law - there are several ways his words will come back to haunt him.

Has Trump Violated His Conditions of Pretrial Release?

Judge Juan Merchan is about to decide if Donald Trump is guilty of criminal contempt for violating the court's gag order at his election interference trial in New York. Assuming he holds Trump in contempt, that will represent a violation of Trump's conditions of pretrial release in his criminal cases. Why is this dire for Trump? Judge's have told him: one of the conditions he must obey while on release is that he not commit any new state, federal, or local offenses because if he does he can be revoked on pretrial release. The consequences of being found in criminal contempt may end up being even more damaging for Trump then he realizes - much more than the $1000 per violation money fines and 30 day per violation jail terms that he is now facing in Judge Merchan's court in New York.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Trump's New York Contempt Ruling is Imminent

Day two of his criminal trial was no better for Donald Trump than day one. His friend and long-time associate David Pecker testified about the dirty "catch-and-kill" scheme they conspired to execute to assist Trump in his political pursuits. Pecker also testified that Trump was very detail-oriented, to the point of being a "micromanager." This directly undercut Trump's lawyer's contention during opening statements that Trump had no idea why he was writing multiple $30,000 checks (totaling $420,000 in all) on his personal checking account and delivering the checks to Michael Cohen. In essence, defense lawyer Todd Blanche was urging the jury to check their common sense at the courtroom door. Even worse for Blanche, at one point during the criminal contempt argument for Trump's repeated violation of his gag order, Judge Merchan told Blanche, "you're losing all credibility with the court". Given that the penalty for criminal contempt is up to 30 days in jail per violation, there is a very real possibility that Trump could end up in jail. Indeed, The New York Times reported that the United States Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies have been meeting to determine how they would handle Trump's incarceration if he is ordered jailed.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Judge Merchan's Unusual Jury Selection Process

The jury has been selected in a New York courtroom to judge the guilt or innocence of a former president of the United States. This is an important step in the direction of fulfilling the long-dormant American promise that no one is above the law.

Criminal trials can often be a bit like popularity contests. Each attorney will strive to be liked, trusted, and respected by the jury. In a sense, each attorney will want to be the most popular in the eyes of the jury. But more importantly - how does the jury views the defendant? Does the defendant come across as likeable, trustworthy, or honorable?There's one important piece of evidence that was disclosed a year ago in the Statement of Facts that accompanied the Indictment in Trump's 2016 Election Interference Case. This evidence will make him the most unpopular person in the entire courtroom. In fact, this one piece of evidence could very well lead the jury to convict Trump in a New York minute. Glenn discusses that piece of evidence as well as Trump's latest loss in his efforts to delay his trial.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Prosecution Witnesses in NY Case: Cohen, Stormy, Hicks, Pecker, and Others Spell Trouble for Trump

New reports have revealed the prosecution witnesses that are prepared to testify at Donald Trump's first criminal trial and they spell real trouble for him. Those witnesses, as you might expect, include Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels. But surprisingly on the list: former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, former Director of the Oval Office Madeleine Westerhout and former CEO of the National Enquirer David Pecker.Cohen in particular is a sharply incriminating witness against Trump. And for those who say that Cohen is damaged goods because he has lied previously - might not be familiar with how prosecutors meet such credibility challenges. Glenn explains how he would convince the jury that Michael Cohen's testimony is trustworthy.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Allen Weisselberg Sentenced AGAIN for Perjury

Donald Trump's longtime Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg was sent back to Rikers Island after pleading guilty to committing perjury at Trump's New York fraud trial. Weisselberg had served time at Rikers previously after pleading guilty to being involved in a 15-year-long criminal scheme to defraud in the first degree while serving as the CFO for the Trump Organization. Given that Weisselberg has steadfastly refused to cooperate with the prosecutors and testify against Donald Trump, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg appears to have made the strategic decision to prosecute him for perjury, making it all the harder for Trump to call Weisselberg as a defense witness at Trump's upcoming criminal trial in an attempt to undercut the prosecution's star witness Michael Cohen.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Judge Merchan to Instruct Jury: This is a "2016 Election Interference" Case

There are two good news stories to report. First, a New York appeals court judge rejected Donald Trump's attempt to stop his trial from beginning on April 15th. But; in a lesser-covered development; Judge Juan Merchan shared how some of the jury selection procedures will work. People often refer to Trump's New York prosecution as the "hush money" case. However Glenn and others refer to it as an "election interference" case: Trump criminally falsified business records to cover-up hush money payments to gain unfair advantage in the 2016 presidential election.Judge Merchan has revealed how he will instruct the jury on the "nature of the case" at the start of the trial: "The allegations are in substance, that Donald Trump falsified business records to conceal an agreement with others to unlawfully influence the 2016 presidential election." So indeed, the jury will be instructed that this is a case involving allegations that Trump interfered in the 2016 presidential election.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Trump Tries to Delay his 2016 Election Interference Trial by Suing Judge Juan Merchan

Donald Trump and his lawyers have again reached into their dirty little bags of tricks in a desperate effort to stop his first criminal trial from beginning on April 15th. Trump is suing the presiding judge, Juan Merchan, as The New York Times reports: "Trump to sue judge in last-ditch attempt to avert Manhattan trial."

New York Attorney General Tish James Challenges Trump's $175 Million Bond

So it looks like the person that put up the $175 million bond to stop New York Attorney General Leticia James from seizing Trump's properties - a guy named Don Hankey - is not actually credentialed to do business in New York. Accordingly, Attorney General James filed a "notice of exception" to the bond, and Judge Arthur Engoron has now set a hearing for April 22nd.

Trump Criticizes Judges Engoron, Chutkan, McAfee, and Kaplan - BUT PRAISES Judge Cannon!

If it already wasn't crystal clear that Trump-appointed Judge Aileen Cannon should be removed from presiding over the prosecution of the very defendant who bestowed upon her a lifetime appointment as a federal judge, it is now beyond reasonable dispute. Judge Cannon ruled AGAINST Trump, denying his motion to dismiss the 32 espionage counts in his Florida federal prosecution, yet Trump then praised her and attacked Special Counsel Jack Smith for telling her - in a court filing - that she was wrong. However, Cannon denied the motion signaling that she will revisit it (and may very well grant it) once the trial starts, in which case Smith will not be able to appeal the dismissal.Given Cannon's pro-Trump bias, the public will never be able to have confidence in the outcome of Trump's Florida prosecution unless Cannon is removed and a fair, impartial and unbiased judge is assigned to preside over the case.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Donald Trump thinks he can do one political photo op - attend the funeral of a slain NYPD police officer - and it will erase the FACT that he sent a mob to the US Capitol on January 6th to "fight like hell" and "stop the steal." His supporters proceeded to attack, beat and assault more than 100 police officers. Trump responded by telling the attackers he "loves them," that the are "very special," and that they should "never forget" that day." Then, he pledged to pardon them for the horrendous assaults they committed on police officers.How dumb, gullible, and naive does Trump think police officers are - that they would support Trump and his efforts to pardon those who attacked police officers on January 6th?If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

John Eastman to be Disbarred & Jeffrey Clark Pleads the 5th

It's been a really bad couple of days for two Trump-affiliated lawyers, John Eastman and Jeffrey Clark. After a bar counsel ethics trial, a California judge ruled that John Eastman - one of the architects of the fake elector scheme - should be disbarred, saying that his "actions were carried out with deceit or dishonesty" and his plan to derail Joe Biden's election victory "was unlawful and lacked any factual or legal support." Former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark is contending with his own disbarment hearing in Washington, DC. When given the opportunity to testify in the hearing Clark repeatedly pleaded the 5th - invoking his 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination. Of course, disbarment may be the least of Eastman and Clark's worries, as both are charged co-defendants with Trump in his Georgia state RICO prosecution. And both are also un-indicted co-conspirators in Trump's federal prosecution in DC.

There can be no reasonable dispute but that the institutions of government - particularly the Department of Justice - apply the rules, the laws, and the Constitution differently to Donald Trump than to the rest of us. And we are forever asking ourselves . "Why is this happening?" Glenn tries to take on that question by drawing from his decades of experience at the Department of Justice.

A Tale of Two Cases: The Good News and the Bad News

New York State court judge Juan Merchan seems fed up with the incessant attempts by Trump and his legal team to delay his criminal trial for interfering in the 2016 election by making hush money payments and falsifying business records to cover them up. Judge Merchan ruled that Trump's NY prosecution will begin with jury selection on April 15.In another legal development, a New York appeals court inexplicably reduced the amount of the bond Trump must put up to appeal the massive money judgement entered against him in his business fraud trial. The bond amount was suppose to be $464 million. Yet without any explanation, analysis, or citation to legal authority, the appeals court ordered the bond reduced to $175 million. This is an especially curious development as it comes just days after Trump boasted on social media that he had close to a half-billion dollars of cash on hand.One thing seems pretty clear: many of our institutions of government - particularly the federal government - seem to have concluded that the rules, the laws, and the Constitution apply differently to Trump than to everyone else.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

How Should the Courts Respond to Trump's Promise of a "Bloodbath"?

Donald Trump is on pretrial release in four felony cases. In the past - he's used inflammatory rhetoric to inspire and incite an attack on the US Capitol on January 6th to try to retain power. Now, Trump has ratcheted up his violent rhetoric, promising a "bloodbath" if he is not reelected. In the criminal justice system, the law provides that if someone on pretrial release poses a danger to even a single person in the community, they should be revoked on release and detained pending trial. Trump is signaling to his supporters that he expects them to respond with violence if he loses. Will prosecutors, the courts, and the institutions of government receive Trump's latest violent rhetoric with a shrug? Or will they protect the American people by applying the law as it is intended to be applied and detain him pending trial?If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

However, the judge told prosecutors - they can cure the technical defect in the indictment by re-indicting the charges with greater specificity. Glenn reviews the law surrounding charging with specificity and Judge McAfee's ruling.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Mar-a-Lago Employee Speaks Out About Trump's Classified Documents Case

A longtime Trump employee named Brian Butler has come forward with some of the incriminating information he has regarding the conduct of Trump and his two co-defendants, Walt Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira. Butler was identified only as "Trump employee 5" in Trump's federal indictment in Florida for unlawfully concealing classified documents, obstructing justice, and violating our nation's espionage laws. Butler said he hired his own attorney rather than accepting an attorney provided by Donald Trump. He also indicated that he's been cooperating with federal law enforcement authorities from the very beginning. Butler said he's sharing his story now to counter Trump's false claim that the case against him is a "witch hunt". Glenn covers three of the main takeaways from the new revelations by Brian Butler.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

After Losing All Cases in the U.S., Trump Loses One in the U.K.

Donald Trump has lost civil trial after civil trial in the US. Now, he's an inter- continental loser as the BBC just reported, "Donald Trump told to pay six-figure cost of firm he sued." This latest Trump loss involves a suit he brought against Christopher Steele's consulting firm for information that became public from the Steele Dossier. But this loss comes with a twist: Trump is the one who filed the suit - a suit that the judge ruled was "bound to fail". As a result, the judge ruled that Trump must "pay the costs of the entire claim" to the party he sued. So much . . . losing.If you're interested in supporting our all-volunteer efforts, you can become a Team Justice patron at: / glennkirschner  If you'd like to support us and buy Team Justice and Justice Matters merchandise visit:https://shop.spreadshirt.com/glennkir...Check out Glenn's website at https://glennkirschner.com/Follow Glenn on:Threads: https://www.threads.net/glennkirschner2Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirsch...See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
