Content warning: 😂 🤣 😂 Trump lawyers forget to ask for a Jury trial, Judge 👨🏾⚖️ proceeds without one
#DonaldTrump is furious that he does not have a jury at his trial, but #Trump has no one to blame but his lawyers as they forgot to check a box requesting a jury trial (the prosecution requested a trial without a jury—they checked that box).
Basically Trump is facing a potential ruling/fine of $250 million!
This concept that a vote for anyone else is a vote for Trump is clearly silly at best and undemocratic at worse.
#Takei has never been a deep thinker, but we need to call out stuff like this in particular because of how undemocratic it is.
Folks should vote for the candidate they think best, all things considered, without having words put in their mouths like this.
Republicans have proven the King wears no clothes. We were all deluded into thinking a civil union was possible; one built on respect, dignity, and the rule of #law. America is broken at the hand of the unruly mob.
So be it. But before they elect their Czar, #Trump will face justice whether they like it or not. I do not care if he gains #political advantage. He stands accused. If there is no #justice, we will soon know it. A nation without justice is not worth saving. #scotus

New York Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron will hold a trial to determine damages, after finding Trump committed real estate fraud for years.
Engoron ruled Trump inflated the value of properties and treated square-footage as subjective.
Like a game of Monopoly, Donald Trump may be forced to sell off his iconic properties under a New York judge's ruling that he committed fraud for years while building his real estate empire
In a late Friday filing, Jack Smith Insists a Trump Gag Order Is Needed Due to Attacks on Former Allies and the Court
Trump threatened to Execute General Milley.
Smith also points to Trump allegedly purchasing “a gun in violation of the law,” or seeking “to benefit from his supporters’ mistaken belief that he did so”

If you have some time, let's read the 45 day Republican spending bill they are voting on today.
I did a document search and the word "Ukraine" does not appear a single time in the document!
Russian Republicans want to cut off Ukraine funding completely.
Scientific American put it this way:
Dehumanizing and vilifying a person or group of people can provoke what scholars and law enforcement officials call stochastic terrorism, in which ideologically driven hate speech increases the likelihood that people will violently and unpredictably attack the targets of vicious claims. At its core, stochastic terrorism exploits one of our strongest and most complicated emotions: #disgust.
One of Donald Trump's RICO co-defendants in Georgia just FLIPPED and agreed to testify at trial.
"Let the flipping begin, or I guess I should say, let the flipping continue"
House Republicans are fucking lunatics - I apologize for swearing, but I'm damn angry!
The House Republicans narrowly approved a defense spending bill stripped of aid for Ukraine and loaded with controversial provisions that include restricting abortion access for troops and slashing pay for the defense secretary to $1.

🤦♀️ Trump's gullibles must be footing the bills here.
' #Trump is suing a former MI6 officer & intel consultancy he founded, high court records in Eng show.
TFG, who is mired in lawsuits in his own country, is bringing a data protection claim against Orbis Business Intelligence & founder Christopher Steele, who previously ran the secret intel service’s Russia desk.
A 2-day hearing for the legal action is set to start on 16 Oct" #legal

JUST IN: Feds maintain some docs in #Trump classified #documents prosecution are so sensitive they can't be stored in the defense SCIF w/other classified info. Unclear if even place in #Florida to review them. We can show them in DC area, prosecutors say. #legal #TrumpIndictment #JackSmith
Trump's ex-lawyer might not testify due to threats: 'I don't want to meet my maker'
"I think it's incumbent now upon government...
are we going to wait until something, God forbid, happens, and then everyone is going to say thoughts and prayers to the family? No. He should not be permitted to do what he's doing.
He's threatening judges... prosecutors...witnesses. This is all obstruction of justice and witness tampering..."
So the guy (1) unanimously adjudged a rapist by a federal jury, (2) whose namesake company was convicted of tax fraud, has now (3) been adjudged to have committed a multi-billion dollar fraud over the past decade.
Meanwhile, the same guy has 91 criminal counts outstanding, and judges are imposing gag orders and mob-boss style jury secrecy rules to protect against witness or jury intimidation.
Yet #Trump is still the overwhelming frontrunner in the self-proclaimed law & order party.
Judge Denies Trump!
U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan said Wednesday she won’t recuse herself from Donald Trump’s 2020 election interference case in Washington, rejecting the former president’s claims that her past comments raise doubts about whether she can be fair.

Weds 9/27 - O'Hagan Meyer Grows, SCOTUS tells Alabama to Redraw District, Trump Liable for Fraud in NY and SCOTUS Prepares for New Term
O’Hagan Meyer eating the meat from the bones of Daugherty Lordan, SCOTUS upholds a ruling requiring Alabama to redraw a district, Trump and co. liable for fraud, and SCOTUS gears up for a new term.
"I can’t speak to what lurks in the hearts of political reporters and editors, but one has to wonder why there isn’t more coverage about Trump musing about sentencing the nation’s highest ranking general to death than, say, the age of the current president…
Oddly, Trump’s dangerous rant was not treated as the major news it absolutely should have been."
~ Molly Jong-Fast
"SURE BIDEN IS OLD BUT THE OTHER CANDIDATE IS A FELONIOUS MANIAC WHO ATTEMPTED A COUP AND HAS SAID HE WANTS TO END THE CONSTITUTION AND ASSASSINATE HIS POLITICAL ENEMIES. WHY AREN’T MORE PEOPLE—REPUBLICANS, THE MEDIA, MY FATHER, ANYONE!!!!—PANICKING ABOUT THAT INSTEAD?!"
~ Tim Miller
The big story here is that millions of Americans — perhaps approaching half — have lined up for the coming elections to say, "Give me more of that. I want more of the corruption and crime, the fascism and faux morality, the immigrant-bashing, woman-bashing, race-baiting, gay-hating. More, please!"
And white Christians are heavily represented in that group — to their great shame.
"Even before the trial officially starts, the ruling handed New York Attorney General Letitia James a near total victory, meaning that next week’s trial will mostly focus on damages that could pulverize whatever is left of Trump’s many business entities and bank accounts."
~ Jose Pagliery
As AP reports, "Judge Arthur Engoron, ruling in a civil lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, found [yesterday] that Trump and his company deceived banks, insurers and others by massively overvaluing his assets and exaggerating his net worth on paperwork used in making deals and securing loans."
Engeron found that this fraud went on for years and the evidence is so overwhelming there's no need to go to trial.
“I marvel at people who don't realize Donald is, and always has been, a con man who lies, cheats, steals, and got away with it using threats of ruinous legal action, etc."
~ David Cay Johnston as cited by Charlie Sykes
#Trump's response on gag the other day claimed there was no evidence his threats result in unlawful activity.
They didn't address this instance.
Trial is set for Oct 30 in the case of Abigail Shry who's accused of threatening DC federal judge Tanya #Chutkan, who's assigned to Trump 2020 election conspiracy case
Feds allege Shry of leaving Chutkan message, "If Trump doesn't get elected in 2024, we are coming to kill you" #legal
