re: Please understand that there are no white hats. - Mephistopheles
Don't you ever get tired of this shit? Flynn, Manafort, Cohen, Jnr, Hannity - they're all criminals and none half as smart as they think they are. I mean, it must be exhausting to keep the impression up that you believe there's some way they could all somehow be innocent....

re: Please understand that there are no white hats. - Mephistopheles
There is no perjury trap. A perjury trap is a specific defense that applies in certain scenarios. Giulani et al brought it up before Trump had even answered any questions. Long before. If you commit an act of perjury the first time around, that's not a trap, that's just perjury....

re: Judge Sullivan would love to burn Flynn - Mephistopheles
Remember when all you crazies throught Flynn had a rock solid case to have his own plea overturned. Remember that? Even though he was an unregistered foreign agent working as NatSec advisor. Oh also, remember when Trump kicked everyone out of the room to ask Comey to go easy on Flynn? But ba...

re: Mueller withheld exculpatory evidence from court in Cohen case - Mephistopheles
I'm not sure I understand. They withheld evidence about Trump, in a case about Cohen? Trump is part of the investigation but not a target, so why would they be exonerating him?...

re: Census confirms SIXTY-THREE % of non-citizens receive welfare - Mephistopheles
As for defending this situation and/or the precedent of non-enforcement... 1) let's not flatter ourselves here. Federal benefits are not that generous and represent the inequality in relative socio-economic status that plagues this country. Many European countries are far more generous. Immigrati...

[quote]My understanding is that the immigrants themselves and their sponsors are both supposed to be signing paperwork to the effect of “you aren’t supposed to be ob the dole and we can prosecute or deport you for doing so.” [/quote] I can confirm that this is correct. The statements are sworn ...

re: Unless It Changes, Capitalism Will Starve Humanity By 2050 - Mephistopheles
40% of the world's population relies on fish as it's main source of protein. In 2040, there basically won't be any fish left to eat the way we're going. Guinea pigs breed really quickly, maybe thats the replacement....

re: How can anyone who voted Clinton cry about Trump “collusion”? - Mephistopheles
Did she engage in a conspiracy to commit criminal acts with agents of foreign governments? Paying for the Steele dossier wasn't criminal and neither was working with friendly foreign governments as long as she didn't actually try to make policy. If she had hired someone to hack a computer or paid...

re: Alan Dershowitz: Cohen 'Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn't Exist' - Mephistopheles
I still can't understand this take. If it's a totally legal personal expenditure, why make Cohen get a second mortgage? Why not just write a personal check to cohen up front and let him handle it from there? From that point on there's no way to question it without someone alleging strongly that the...

re: Alan Dershowitz: Cohen 'Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn't Exist' - Mephistopheles
Oh yeah and Cohen has tapes. And so do the SDNY. But Trump doesn't know what's on them. So if Trump does end up in deposition (I don't really think he will) he's in some shite....

re: Alan Dershowitz: Cohen 'Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn't Exist' - Mephistopheles
If the law were that simple attorneys wouldn't earn three figures an hour at the low end. Is having any personal utility always an affirmative defense to a charge of campaign finance fraud? My reading of the situation doesn't seem to suggest so. And for obvious reasons the law as it relates to in-ki...

re: Alan Dershowitz: Cohen 'Pleading Guilty to a Crime that Doesn't Exist' - Mephistopheles
[quote]so someone with some legal expertise explain this to me. What is the recourse to someone pleading guilty to a crime that isn't a crime? This seems like a really bad legal precedent no matter what your political leanings. [/quote] You do have legal recourse. Look up false confessions, it h...
