I love Trump’s style, and I am looking forward to himand is attorneys helping to make foolish people show nature.

So many lawyer letters are written as if they are paid by the word. This is a delightful breath of fresh air. Packed into one is:
1) No, Trump isn’t dumb enough to give up his 5th am. rights.
2) No, Trump isn’t dumb enough to actually *raise* those actual words, because that would give readers a knee-jerk reaction.
3) We know this trial is unconstitutional, you know this trial is unconstitutional, and these ain’t our monkeys, they’re your circus.
4) Bite me.

I wonder what Constitution these Dems/Progs follow. I don’t even play an Attorney on TV, and can think of many issues that make this sham impeachment obvious.

When much of your electorate exists inside cemeteries and cyberspace, and the dinosaur media, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat party, covers for you,anything is possible..

    I don’t need to wonder what constitution these clowns follow. It’s the same one Obama followed when he claimed to be a constitutional law professor.

    It’s the Soviet Union’s.

      I have an officially-published copy of the Soviet Union’s constitution, in English. It’s surprisingly similar to ours in many respects, including a list of citizen’s rights similar to the Bill of Rights. Of course they ignored most of it. Even at the time I acquired it (early 1980s) it was apparent to me that we were moving in the same direction – a dichotomy between what the Constitution says and how the government acts.

      BTW, I received my copies of the Soviet constitution via a written (snail mail) request to the Soviet embassy in D.C. For months after that, my mail was being tampered with – very obviously opened and inspected, and sometimes roughly put back into envelopes. I filed the appropriate request with the FBI to determine if they were running a mail cover on me, and the reply was negative. Somebody was running a mail cover on me, and they wanted it to be obvious. (I requested multiple copies for a study group I belonged to. We studied the US Constitution, and I thought the Soviet constitution would be something interesting to compare to our own, for reasons mentioned above.)

        My wife’s family grew up in the USSR and lived through the 90’s in Russia. I found the particular section in the USSR constitution that protected freedom of speech and I showed it to her. She just laughed and mentioned that the ‘black cars’ quickly showed up when someone got uppity (my word).

Also avoids a certain hostile perjury trap.

A little more wordy than the “Nuts!” given to the Germans at Bastogne by General Anthony McAuliffe, but it’ll do quite nicely!

Unfortunately, Jamie “The Rascal” Raskin is my Congresscritter in grotesquely gerrymandered district to ensure no Republican can ever get elected. He is the lowest of the low in Congress and will lie about anything with no qualms. He richly deserves the smack in the face of this letter. Bravo to Trump and his attorneys for sending it.

turnabout is fair play, insist that all congress critters that voted for the impeachment testify

Jamie Raskin: A Jewish guy, born in DC, who happens to hold a National Socialist view of due process and rights of the accused.

Democrat House impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin insisted Trump testify in-person during next week’s clown show impeachment trial.

And now comes the democrat party’s desperate attempts to legitimize their kangaroo court by getting someone, anyone, from the former Trump administration to testify at their clown show. Expect more and more strident demands from Raskin and the House/Senate democrats as the show trial gets nearer and nearer and they realize just how badly they’ve managed to screw the pooch with this second “impeachment”.

“If you decline this invitation, we reserve any and all rights, including the right to establish at trial that your refusal to testify supports a strong adverse inference regarding your actions (and inaction) on January 6, 2021.”

It is unethical for a prosecutor to argue that a jury can draw a negative inference from a defendant’s exercise of his Fifth Amendment privilege not to testify, and would be regarded as prosecutorial misconduct in any court in this country. It would almost certainly result in a case being thrown out of court, or any conviction being reversed on appeal. See, e.g., Griffin v. California, 380 U.S. 609 (1965).

Perhaps Raskin’s unethical threat to commit prosecutorial misconduct should be referred to the D.C. and Maryland bar associations and any other jurisdiction where Raskin is licensed to practice law.
