No, you’re “guilty” of thinking that human emotions are universal. twitter.com/cnn/status/163…
@psnelson300 1. It’s also unconstitutional but the courts won’t say so. 2. The Supreme Court said the govt can do things by making them a condition if getting federal money that the feds can’t do directly by legislation. Which tells you how messed up our federalism has become
@nittwit808 @jmotivator Brady is part of the due process TRIAL right. The courts have never said it applies pre-indictment. You shouldn't talk about things that you don't know about, especially to someone who does.
Because it's a free country. twitter.com/laralogan/stat…
@FirstAMom3 @christinelange2 In my opinion, yes.
@CrisisActionTm You said: "Prosecutorial & attorney ethics strictly forbid such abuses." See your tweet earlier in this thread. The "abuse" at issue was the failure to present exculpatory evidence, which I had said was not required & which was what you were responding to. 🙄

I did a video interview with @johnburky. Discussed J6, criminal justice reform, and DeSantis. rumble.com/v2elpse-januar…
@Midian_1616 Some of them didn't even manage that! 🤣
@ScottD25523876 @Wyntre999 @bennyjohnson "Just because she's a woman," no. That's not why I voted for HRC either, as I've said twice now. So, if you want me block you, then just keep going.
I swear we live in the dumbest damn times. twitter.com/UTLAnow/status…
@ScottD25523876 @Wyntre999 @bennyjohnson I have concerns about this as well. I am still hoping, however, that the legal process - which I think is seriously flawed in many, many ways - will work in this situation.
@ScottD25523876 @Wyntre999 @bennyjohnson I voted for her for the reasons I stated, one of which was I think it's long past time we have a woman President, but most of which were that I thought DJT was not suited to the role of President.
@ScottD25523876 @Wyntre999 @bennyjohnson They are going to admit that they are liars. That doesn't necessarily tank a criminal case. Prosecutors never think so. They deal with the worst human beings you will ever hear of as witnesses.
@ScottD25523876 @Wyntre999 @bennyjohnson I voted for Hilary for the same reason. It was a powerful motivation for women. Also, I was offended by Trump's remarks about gold star families & Muslims & I was concerned about his natsec lack of experience. But none of that makes any difference vis a vis the criminal case.
@christinelange2 They can try, but since the act isn't constitutional I would not expect that to succeed. What they should do is just withhold federal funding of non-federal schools period.
@ScottD25523876 @Wyntre999 @bennyjohnson Not if you don't believe it and not if she testifies that it was false. Almost never is one single piece of evidence the answer.
@ScottD25523876 @Wyntre999 @bennyjohnson They don't think he's innocent or that there is evidence of his innocence. They think he has a defense potentially or that there are credibility issues with their witnesses, which is not the same thing.
@frierdo60 @RobManess Because the Supreme Court has said the feds can do with the purse what they can't do directly. So the situation is that the Executive Branch can do things that the Congress cannot. It's a total mess.
@Wyntre999 @ScottD25523876 @bennyjohnson If they have a basis for doing so, sure. To plead the 5th, you have to have a non-frivolous concern that the govt might prosecute you based on your truthful answers.
I had completely failed to appreciate the urgent necessity of the war against appliances.
@KiltedRef Almost nothing on prosecutorial ethics is the truth. Prosecutors deal with severely unsavory witnesses every day; they don't see them the way the public does.
Explaining how it works and what the current law or standard is doesn't mean I think that's the way it should be.
@jfcsoup Most of the time you're only making it worse if you do.
@KiltedRef That's what the law is. f it's "substantially" exculpatory, the ethics rules require prosecutors to present it to the grand jury (the criminal law doesn't even go this far currently). If it's exculpatory, but less than substantially exonerating, then it's an issue for trial.
@JohnnyC4077 Correct. And banned all other federal agencies from using federal funds in any way for any non-federal school.
@GuyThompson_Esq Because most of the time the public does not care - most of all the Right - because the criminal justice system applies to "criminals."
