Excused Menendez juror: ´I don´t

The Hill, by Olivia Beavers

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/9/2017 5:54:39 PM

A juror, who was excused from the bribery trial of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), said Thursday she would have found the New Jersey lawmaker "not guilty on every charge” if she had remained on the jury. “I feel like the government was very corrupted, not that Menendez was. That they were, to me, railroading him. This is how I feel. Personally, he’s not guilty on all counts," Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby said, according to Politico. "I don’t think he did anything wrong,” she added at the end of the jury´s third day of deliberations. U.S. District Judge William Walls had promised Arroyo-Maultsby

When you live in New Jersey things that look like crimes everywhere else don´t look like crimes there. The people are well conditioned by years of corrupt politicians working hand-in-hand with organized crime.

#2 - case to case, trial attorneys have different reasons for picking different jurors. But, one thing that both prosecutors and defense attorneys seek out is stupid/uneducated jurors. They are more malleable. The more uninformed you are, the more apathetic you are, the more valuable you are to the trial attorney.

If you doubt me on this, read legendary trial attorney Gerry Spence on the importance and process of voir dire... he is perfectly frank about the need to pick twelve honest fools, if you want to win.

I also was called a few times for jury duty.
During jury selection, as soon as I said that I was a senior mechanical design engineer, I saw the defense attorney make a mark on his paper.
I was excused.

-------------------------------------
Anyone else notice that there is a near total news blackout on the Menendez trial?

There has been more coverage -just today- of allegations against judge Roy Moore about something he is accused of that supposedly happened FORTY YEARS ago, than there has been for the -weeks?, months?- of the Menendez trial.
My thinking is that if Menendez had been a conservative or a Republican, each trivial detail would have been forced on us all at the top-of-the-hour news EVERY DAY.

Many of the country’s top media outfits blamed the Democratic Party for allowing the government to shutdown instead of bridging a budget impasse with Republicans in the Senate. “U.S. Shutdown Starts as Senate Democrats Block GOP Funding Plan” a Bloomberg headline blared early Saturday morning, referring to the Senate’s inability to agree on a variety of budgetary issues. The New York Times and AP chimed in with similar headlines. Republican and Democratic leaders have not stopped talking through their differences. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, for instance, said late Friday night that the conflict has a “really

As previously reported, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a blistering statement late Friday night on the Senate Democrats blocking funding the federal government in favor of amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients. The Trump administration is putting America first and the Senate Democrats dug in their heels Friday night, shutting down the government in favor of illegal aliens. The House budget resolution failed a cloture vote in the Senate on a largely party line vote, 50 to 49. (Photo) The Schumer Shutdown went in to effect shortly after midnight Saturday.

Deep State stalwart James Clapper provably lied to Congress on a matter of substantive importance, yet he was never charged with perjury. In less than two months, the statute of limitations will excuse him from any criminal liability if he is not charged with lying to Congress.

Five Democratic senators from states won by President Trump in the 2016 presidential election introduced legislation Friday to withhold pay from members of Congress in the event of a government shutdown. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Jon Tester (Mont.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.), all of whom are up for reelection this year, announced the bill Friday, hours ahead of a government funding deadline. “If members of Congress can’t fulfill their basic duty to keep the government open and provide the essential services Americans depend on, then they don’t deserve their paychecks,” Heitkamp said in a

Acting ICE Director Tom Homan hit back Thursday at California´s Democratic senators, who criticized his agency over reports of planned immigration sweeps in the sanctuary state. Local law enforcement officials have reportedly stated they will not assist ICE in raids aimed at apprehending 1,500 illegal immigrants in northern California. California Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris wrote a letter to the agency, asking for a briefing on the raids. They argued the action would be "an abhorrent abuse of power" and a diversion of resources to "score political points" and "punish" the state for its policies toward illegal immigrants. Homan

President Trump argued Friday that a partial shutdown of the federal government is on the horizon because Senate Democrats refuse to support a continuing resolution, and said voters should send more Republicans to Congress in November as a result. "Government Funding Bill past last night in the House of Representatives. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate - but they want illegal immigration and weak borders. Shutdown coming? We need more Republican victories in 2018!" Trump tweeted Friday morning. (Tweet) The House passed a spending bill late Thursday that would keep the government open through Feb.

The acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), former congressman Mick Mulvaney, has submitted a budget request that may be a first in the history of government. The CFPB is an independent agency that recieves its funding from the Federal Reserve. The director must submit a budget request to the Fed every quarter. The most recent budget request came from former director Richard Cordray, an Obama appointee. Cordray asked the Fed for $217 million. But Mulvaney shocked official Washington by making a budget request for zero dollars. That´s $0.00 in taxpayer funds.

After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world.

It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP?

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has become "sort of the Steve King of the Senate," a reference to one of the House´s most ardent immigration hardliners. In an interview with MSNBC, Graham, who has advocated for legislative protections for young, undocumented immigrants, rejected the notion of ending family-based immigration in exchange for enshrining the protections of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program into law. A proposal by Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) seeks to end so-called chain migration, which allows U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor family members abroad to
