Fulton County Lawfare Madness on Full Display – Courtroom Video
As long as you remember that Lawfare is the legal construction of a media narrative intended to sway public opinion, then the madness happening in Fulton County, GA, reconciles. [At the bottom of this outline is video from the courtroom]
Earlier today, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee said it seems unrealistic to expect all of the pre-trial issues to be resolved before the established trial date of October 23rd for Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro. Both Powell and Chesebro have demanded speedy trials; however, the case is essentially a Rico conspiracy case and none of the accused defendants can split away from the group of 19 as a whole.
If a single state defendant successfully argues in another court that their case should be transferred to a different jurisdiction (perhaps federal), or if a single state defendant is successful splitting away from the group of 19, then the entire conspiracy case collapses. This is the ridiculousness of the construct.
Today, lawyers for both Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro reminded the judge they do not know each other, have never met each other, and have no idea what connection is being applied to them as they are being accused of conspiring together. It would be hard to imagine a conspiracy between two people who have never met, never communicated and don’t know each other; alas this is the madness in Fulton County.
As noted by Politico, “Prosecutors said the distinction in the charges Powell and Chesebro face is immaterial, since they’re both charged with conspiring toward the same unlawful goal: keeping Trump in power despite his defeat in the 2020 election.” So, wanting Trump to remain in office is the connection that creates the conspiracy.
According to the Laware logic as explained today in court, any of the 73 million Trump voters are therefore guilty of conspiring to keep President Donald Trump in office, and subject to future arrest and detention. Yes, this is Lawfare madness.
Even Judge McAfee seemed to admit the madness before him when he said, “it could potentially even be a six-month turnaround just for the 11th Circuit to come up with a decision,” referring to the Atlanta-based federal appeals court that would handle appeals from individuals claiming the state has no jurisdiction.
“Where does that leave us in the middle of a jury trial?” the judge asked, although he also seemed to concur that Powell and Chesebro have a right under Georgia law to have their trials start next month, as they have demanded.
