Dear SCJ Roberts

Your part of the EQUAL branch of government is in deep corruption and political swamp!

Are you going to defend the rule of law or just be another Trumpbot or Trump :hear_no_evil::see_no_evil::speak_no_evil: in the Banana Republic of Trump and turn the SC into a Kangaroo Kourt under your watch?

Trump and his Chumps are just cueing up the outrage machine for when the appeal is denied.

Realizing that you are unlikely to get a pardon is not, in fact, a basis for a new trial. Too bad he know so much about the corruption in this administration. My guess is that they’ll try for a pardon with an executive order that suspends the obligation to testify against the President.

I suspect this is theatrical window-dressing to prepare the ground for the upcoming pardon. Makes it all the easier for Trump to say he’s pardoning Stone because the latter “was treated very unfairly.”

This Motion is way out of time.

Rule 33a. requires that any Motion for New Trial not based on new evidence just discovered has to be filed within 14 days of the verdict or finding of guilty.

OT (kind of)

I miss the early days of MSNBC, when Rachel just got started. Every Friday night, she closed her show with a little segment on her cocktail concoctions. It was always a slow Friday news night. I know that she misses those days. I believe she is the only MSNBC star who has her own bar in her office suite, or set.

I also miss Olbermann…
