“Trump now claims that he has almost $500 million in cash, but his lawyers recently told the appellate court that he has no means to post a $454 million bond,” tweeted former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti. “One of them is lying, and you can expect the court to ask Trump’s lawyers about this.”
Have we fallen into a mesmerized state that makes us accept as inevitable that which is inferior or detrimental, as though having lost the will or the vision to demand that which is good?

I agree, she needs to STFU and simply do her job. She has a nearly open and shut case, (in my amateur opinion), why risk ____ing it up?

That being said:

-She is up for reelection this fall and it might play well to her constituency,

-Not sure how any of us would respond to all the death threats, need to change residences, slander, etc., she's been subjected to.

And while we're on the subject...Was NY AG Letitia James born with that smirk on her face?

TheNY Trump criminal trial update: If a defendant sits on his rights, he cannot then simultaneously say he needs more time to prepare - that is where Judge Merchan is going with this inquiry.

Kyle Griffin
@kylegriffin1

At the hush money hearing, Judge Merchan seems to suggest Trump's team deliberately waited to bring up the documents issue — reminding them that, in February, they asked for the trial to be delayed, but didn't bring up the documents.

"Why didn't you bring any of this to my attention? Why didn't you tell the court or anyone in the courtroom at that time that you had made this request, that it was taking a little longer than you expected?" Merchan asked. "So how come you didn't bring them up?"
@MSNBC

......................

Judge Merchan to Trump's team: "That you don't have a case right now is really disconcerting."

"You are literally accusing the Manhattan DA's office and the people assigned to this case of prosecutorial misconduct." Merchan says Trump's team doesn't have a single example to support that allegation.

This, folks, is Smith telling you OUT LOUD that a Trump-appointed judge is knowingly and intentionally misapplying the law so as to save her patron.

Special counsel blasts judge’s jury instruction request in Trump documents case

https://www.cnn.com/2024/04/02/politics ... index.html
In perhaps prosecutors’ strongest rebuke yet to how Judge Aileen Cannon has handled the classified documents case against former President Donald Trump, special counsel Jack Smith said in court filings late Tuesday evening that the judge had ordered briefings based on a “fundamentally flawed” understanding of the case that has “no basis in law or fact.”

Smith’s team harshly critiqued Cannon’s request for jury instructions that embraced Trump’s claims that he had broad authority to take classified government documents and said it would seek an appeals court review if she accepted the former president’s arguments about his record-retention powers.

[...]

“Both scenarios [Judge Cannon asked the parties' counsel to choose from] rest on an unstated and fundamentally flawed legal premise — namely, that the Presidential Records Act and in particular its distinction between ‘personal’ and ‘Presidential’ records, determines whether a former President is ‘authorized,’ under the Espionage Act, to possess highly classified documents and store them in an unsecure facility,” the special counsel’s team wrote.

If allowed to be presented to a jury, prosecutors said, “that premise would distort the trial.”
The CNN article (understandably) does not quite get to the MOST salient part of Smith's filing, which is essentially that if Cannon even simply waits to decide this issue until after trial begins, her decision will be unreviewable.

One week of Trump Social being a public company:

- IPO launched with an evaluation that peaked over $10 billion
- Reported revenue at just $4M year
-Lost $60M in in one year
- Sued the co-founders
- Arrests for insider trading
- Connected to Russian money laundering
- Involved Russians were connected to a plot to remove the sitting president from office

Yes, this on it's own is insane. But what's truly insane is that this maybe 50th in the rankings of insane things done by Donald Trump. Who TF bought all that DJT stock at such outlandish amounts in the first place?

I am thinking about buying one share through a discount brokerage when the price is tanking (no fees) then request the company to issue me a stock certificate. Companies hate that because it’s a lot of work (I may be wrong but I think they’re required by law to do it).

I’m sure I can sell the certificate to some rube (eg. Lobster) for a sizable markup.
