Trump J6 case REMOVED from DC court docket

The J6 case against Donald Trump has been dropped from the court's public calendar in Washington, DC. The case, brought by special counsel Jack Smith and presided over by Judge Tanya Chutkan, currently has motions pending that are on appeal.

 

"Former president Donald Trump’s March 4 trial date on charges of plotting to overturn the results of the 2020 election has been dropped from the public calendar of the federal court in Washington, a sign of what has long been anticipated — that his claim of presidential immunity from criminal prosecution would delay his trial while it remains on appeal," the Washington Post reports.

 

The motion currently on appeal is one brought by Trump's attorneys stating that he has presidential immunity from the charges as he was still in office at the time the alleged offenses occurred. Trump brought the motion to Chutkan, who denied it, and Trump then appealed.

 

Smith took the motion to the Supreme Court and asked them to rule on it quickly, but the court declined to do so, leaving the matter for the lower court to decide. This process has caused a delay of the trial that Smith wanted to ram through the court system as quickly as possible. :snip:

Who is Mike Roman, the Trump co-defendant threatening Willis’s most important case?

A lesser-known co-defendant charged alongside former President Donald Trump in Georgia is jeopardizing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s racketeering election interference case by making allegations of impropriety that, if true, may result in her removal from the case.

Mike Roman, 52, is one of 18 allies of Trump indicted by a Fulton County grand jury for allegedly conspiring to undo President Joe Biden’s victory in the Peach State. Last month, Roman dropped a bombshell complaint alleging Willis and her hired special prosecutor, Nathan Wade, engaged in an “improper, clandestine” relationship that raises questions about whether the pair misused thousands of dollars in taxpayer funds.

Roman’s lawyer Ashleigh Merchant wrote about the allegations in a Jan. 8 complaint to Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee, who is presiding over the case. McAfee has already ordered Willis to respond to the allegations by Feb. 2 in court filings and has set up a Feb. 15 hearing to consider the complaint. Additionally, Merchant filed a lawsuit against Willis on Wednesday that seeks to subpoena her, Wade, and others in the district attorney’s office.:snip:

Well one thing we know for sure is he's a Nazi. That's just a given. After that what more do we need to know?

The disarray of the Republican Party (see: House Republicans) was on full display this week. It’s a full Weekend Open Thread by itself! But there are certainly other important things going on than a constipated political party’s elected officials in action, so let’s go!

First news item

Special Counsel pushes back on Judge Cannon in Mar a Lago case:

Special counsel Jack Smith is asking Judge Aileen Cannon to reconsider a ruling that would allow former President Trump’s legal team to publicly disclose witness identities and their testimony to the court docket.… Trump’s team has sought to attach evidence given to them during the discovery process in other court filings set to be publicly posted in connection with the Mar-a-Lago documents case… The Justice Department argued late Thursday that Cannon erred in her legal rationale for allowing them to do so.

“That discovery material, if publicly docketed in unredacted form as the Court has ordered, would disclose the identities of numerous potential witnesses, along with the substance of the statements they made to the FBI or the grand jury, exposing them to significant and immediate risks of threats, intimidation, and harassment,” prosecutors wrote in the 22-page filing.
