    Testify to what? Even if DT did it, none of these boys were aware of anything before hand. That’s why they were in disbelief and did stupid stuff later.

    Groan.

    Thank you. I was hunting for this as someone referred to it on another blog.

    The defense should use this to, once again, ask for a change of venue.

    I don’t think we’ll have a jury seated by Jan. 29. Or, if we do, it won’t have been seated long.

    That said, it doesn’t mean they won’t push it back.

    Is this mitigation-relevant? I don’t see that. If it turns out the BMB was a sting operation, incited by the FBI, but executed by the brothers, this would be bad for the FBI, but not exonerate DT at all.

    Except the FBI has been doing this for years. It’s been documented in several books and investigative [...]

    I never said you had fantasies and I do believe these cases are going just how they are “intended” to go, FWIW. These judges really floor me in their overwhelming belief in the abilities of the citizens of Boston, most of whom were either directly or indirectly effected by the bombings. I don’t see it, [...]

    When a juror runs out frightened, as was Tweeted on the #Tsarnaev hashtag, there is a major problem.

    A seemingly frightened juror who left alone said their decision was difficult but would not elaborate.#Tsarnaev

    I’d be struggling, too, if I was in front of a myopic judge who can’t be bothered to rule from the bench, rules without providing legal arguments for his decisions, favors the prosecution at every turn and has his head so far up his arse that he allegedly can’t tell from public sentiment and comments [...]

    Normally, OG, I can sort of see where you’re coming from when you make this claim (even if I don’t agree), but in this case, I don’t see it – at all. In the motion, the defense says, “Given the virtual certainty that the FBI will descend on each of the non-expert witnesses to interview [...]

    Yes, but I think Silvergate was pointing to the systemic nature of testifying-as-sentence-bargining in the court system.

    I’ve talked to her personally and at length. She’s a lovely woman and not a bit scared of the authorities. I like her and would have found her a friend even if I had met her outside of these circumstances (we are close in age, too). I wanted to meet her in person when I [...]

    Well, that doesn’t even make sense: “… if the evidence was so damning, then why isn’t his defense team using it?”

    Why isn’t DT’s defense team using the evidence against him? Huh? :/

    Rock on, Harvey Silvergate: Phillipos, a mutual friend of Tsarnaev and Tazhayakov, has been charged with a lesser crime related to the FBI’s investigation of the bombing: making false statements to a federal official. Prosecutors are using Tazhayakov’s testimony to help convict Phillipos, and are holding a potential 25-year sentence over Tazhayakov’s head as leverage. His [...]

    She’s working on a book about the FBI’s involvement with Tamerlan Tsarnaev? Given what she’s put forth into the public arena, thus far, I’d venture to say that book will be more of a whitewashing. Because of the outstanding work of author Trevor Aaronson, we know that only somewhere between 3 to 5 “terrorism” defendants [...]

    Well, she has a whole city full on indigent people to defend. I’m going to guess she has been working on other cases since Clarke, Bruck, Fick, et al are there.

    She’ll be there for trial.

    I think it refers to this, but Jane can correct me since she was there:

    The parties have met to confer on proposed dates for disclosing witness lists, exhibit lists, and Jencks material. The government proposes to provide its preliminary witness and exhibit lists on December 15, 2014, and final lists on December 29, 2014. To [...]

    Some things are not forgivable. Deliberate cruelty is not forgivable. It is the one unforgivable thing in my opinion and the one thing of which I have never, never been guilty.

    It really was that bad. I know that journalists are human and sometimes cannot put aside all of their objectivity and, as a result, lean in one direction or another when they write stories. It’s the unintentional consequence of possessing a functioning heart and mind. However, when a so-called “reporter” mucks around in tabloid-mire to [...]
