Obstructed View
Prosecutors have applied a 2002 law adopted in the wake of a financial scandal so broadly that even peaceful protesters could face 20 years in prison if the government's interpretation is allowed to stand, Jeffrey Green, a lawyer for Jan. 6 defendant Joseph Fischer, told the court.


Yesterday began arguments over the very broad use of obstruction which prosecutors used to charge Jan 6 defendants. Jeffrey Greene who is representing Joseph Fischer has argued that the "obstruction law" which the DOJ used as a huge net to ensnare all the protestors and may even ensnare former President Trump.


Prosecutors have applied a 2002 law adopted in the wake of a financial scandal so broadly that even peaceful protesters could face 20 years in prison if the government's interpretation is allowed to stand, Jeffrey Green, a lawyer for  Jan. 6 defendant Joseph Fischer , told the court.

Green urged the justices to interpret the law narrowly,  applying it only to the destruction of documents , and to avoid turning “a catchall provision into a dragnet.”

Supreme Court grapples with limits on obstruction charge in Jan. 6 cases (yahoo.com)

The DOJ's solicitor General argued that the obstruction law's limits are clear, noting that three-quarters of the Jan. 6 defendants haven’t been charged with it. 

Judge Alito asked the crucial question:

“We need to find out what are the outer reaches of this statute, under your interpretation.”

And there was another from Justice Thomas:

"Has the government applied this provision to other protests in the past, and has this been the government's position throughout the lifespan of this statute?" Justice Clarence Thomas asked.

The Court's decision on this issue would affect hundreds who were prosecuted under a law that was adopted & used for a financial scandal.


In other news:

Juan Merchan, the judge overseeing Trump’s Manhattan criminal trial, swore in the first seven jurors in the Trump show trial. Believe it or not he was forced to dismiss several for social media posts critical of Trump. How did they get called for jury duty?  Shouldn't there be vetting before assembling a pool?

Some Republicans seem ready to take on Speaker Johnson.

The House sent 2 Articles of impeachment against HSS Mayorkas, which Chuck Schumer will try to dismiss quickly.

Separate Israeli strikes killed two Hezbollah commanders in southern Lebanon.

Joe Biden is considering Trump style sanctions against Iran.

Senator Tom Cotton, an Arkansas Republican, urged people to take matters into your own hands if pro-Palestinian protesters block roads. Such protestors have been doing just that which is illegal. Blue city mayors are slow to respond.

NPR suspended an editor who exposed their woke bias. Donald Trump is calling for the end of taxpayer funding for the propaganda organization.

The Democrat Mayor of Denver has found enough money to take care of migrants:

"Denver will cut hours at recreation centers, end in-person vehicle registration renewals and eliminate spring flower beds to save $5 million this year, a response to the migrant crisis that is expected to cost the city $180 million. 

Mayor Mike Johnston on Friday blasted Congress for failing this week to pass a $118.3 billion bill aimed at stopping the flow of illegal entry at the southern border and making it easier for migrants who enter legally to get work permits. 

About 40,000 migrants, mostly from Venezuela, have arrived in Denver over the past year, and more than 3,500 are living in city-funded hotel rooms. Thousands took bus rides to other American cities after arriving in Denver, and an unknown number are trying to stay in the city, find jobs and send their kids to school.

Denver has received  more migrants per capita  than any other city in the nation, the mayor has said.

Denver set up emergency operations to welcome the new arrivals, opened city buildings as shelters and is organizing clinics to help those who are eligible  apply for work authorization . Volunteers, meanwhile, mobilized to bring food, and in some cases, tents and propane heaters for those who are living outside."

The House sent 2 Articles of impeachment against HSS Mayorkas, which Chuck Schumer will try to dismiss quickly.

And as expected, it's been dismissed by a party line vote in the Senate.

The Senate voted to deem both articles of impeachment against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as unconstitutional — cutting the trial short without any votes to convict or acquit.

Both votes mostly adhered to party lines, aside from Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) voting present on the first article. Senate Democrats for months had repeatedly cast the impeachment against Mayorkas as a sham, forecasting their ultimate decision to dispose of the trial on Wednesday.

Note that they stick together and all vote the same as Schumer decrees. 

The lame brained Republicans need to learn to do that.

And as expected, it's been dismissed by a party line vote in the Senate.

Right down party lines. The democrats made history again by using their majority to kill the charges without a trial and also set another dangerous precedent.


I stated when the House first started up with the inquiry that it was a waste of time.

I don't know about to that. The democrats were forced to vote on what really is one of the leading issues in the 2024 election.
