Is time to agreed that covi19 is real ok ,,,,,,😷😷😷
All The Republicans Who Have Endorsed Joe Biden For President by Andrew Solender Forbes Staff
Opinion by Paul Butler September 24, 2020 at 3:36 p.m. MST Paul Butler is the Albert Brick Professor in Law at Georgetown University. A former federal prosecutor, he is the author of “Chokehold: Policing Black Men.” "...I’m a former prosecutor, and I would have charged all three officers with manslaughter. I think murder would be overcharging, because the officers did not have the intent to kill Taylor. Still, if three gang members burst into an apartment, were met with gunfire by somebody in the home, and in response shot up the apartment complex and killed an innocent person, they would almost certainly be charged with homicide...."
See https://news.bloomberglaw.com/us-law-week/recent-law-grads-call-on-california-trustees-to-scrap-bar-exam ("Recent Law Grads Call on California Trustees to Scrap Bar Exam") Why is anyone the least surprised about this? The State Bar of California is the the most corrupt and diabolical trade association of its kind in the United States. It is like belonging to a private club that discriminates, and is run by an in**ed clique or cabal. At best, it is a third-rate trade association—and Sacramento and Washington, D.C. are full of them. See https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2014/09/08/the-state-bar-of-california-is-lawless-and-a-travesty-and-should-be-abolished/ ("The State Bar Of California Is Lawless And A Travesty, And Should Be Abolished") (see also the comments beneath the article)
If the Trumpublican "Supreme" Court had left this alone...the House WOULD have been able to see what the Trump "Justice" Department illegally redacted in order to cover Trump's dirty fat stinky corrupt ass. This legal issue was settled in the Watergate era when Nixon was NOT ALLOWED to illegally cover his ass...what TRump and this evil corrupt SCOTUS are doing is bloody OBVIOUS! By ruling to hear the case the finding of the lower federal court is temporarily nullified until the corrupt Trump Court can rule...and I do mean RULE! When you can set the rules of the game, you always win, eh? Meanwhile, Trump gets to run for re-election with his cover-up intact. SICK!!!
