My favorite part of that is Blagojevich complaining on TV about his public statements being used against him. As I recall, he didn’t have much of a defense, either.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the recordings of Trump produced as evidence by Jack Smith include Trump’s TV interviews.— Renato Mariotti (@renato_mariotti) June 22, 2023
My former office sent Rod Blagojevich his own interviews in discovery during his prosecution. He complained about it during a late-night talk show interview. https://t.co/4SbOGw4V8E
Jack Smith meant it when he said he was ready for trial in 70 days.
Prosecutors are required to turn over the grand jury testimony of witnesses. They often do so near the end of the discovery process, not the beginning. https://t.co/1Be6qByIoq— Renato Mariotti (@renato_mariotti) June 22, 2023
That date is still unlikely, but the burden of delaying is all on Trump. DOJ is not going to help one bit.
Wow. That is an amazingly speedy production of witness's grand jury testimony on the part of the government in U.S. v. Trump. Trump will still be looking for every possible reason to delay, but the Special Counsel is not going to be providing him with any. https://t.co/laydVBePYP— Elizabeth de la Vega (@Delavegalaw) June 22, 2023
