The US Justice Dept guilty of not producing exculpatory evidence, put politics above the law. By Karl Denninger.
Well now there’s a problem.
Tucker has released video that pretty-much blows a hole in the entire January 6th narrative. In fact, it blows it up, sets it alight and watches it burn to ash.
This is a serious problem for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the number of people sitting in prison — or convicted on connived, false claims with no ability for their defense to access the evidence proving that in many cases they were escorted.
At worst most of these people are guilty of trespass, but even there you likely can’t make it stick as trespass is voided if you’re invited or chaperoned, and its quite clear that at least in some cases — they are.
There’s another problem too: The Brady decision by the USSC makes clear that the prosecution must turn over all evidence they have which exculpates a defendant. It’s not optional and it dates to 1963. The violations here are severe and in fact it appears basically universal.
Indeed the definition of malicious prosecution is to bring a case before the court where you know the exculpatory evidence is so strong you’d never win a conviction and you intentionally withhold it from the defense. That opens up the DOJ and even the individuals involved to personal liability.
I have no idea how the DOJ thought they’d get away with this indefinitely, but apparently they did think they would.
Well, not any more.
Now the question becomes if the government will not live to its own laws, what remains?
It’s not a pleasant question to ponder, but ponder it we must, and the implications do not just extend to January 6th.
The wheels are coming off the American Republic.
