Whitmer Kidnapping trial Judge places 25-minute limit on defense attorneys but not on prosecutors 


BREAKING: Federal judge in Whitmer Kidnapping trial places 25-minute limit on defense attorneys but not on prosecutors. Defense attorneys now arguing with Judge Robert Jonker about his order under Reeves. This was applied to two government witnesses who pleaded guilty. 

Earlier in the trial:

The judge is getting impatient with the defense in the Gov. Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping retrial, telling lawyers they are taking too much time talking about “crap” that isn’t important, dragging out the case and exhausting jurors in the process.

“You can look at the jury and see when they are checking out — and they’re checking out,” U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker said after the jury went home Friday.

“It’s getting ridiculous,” Jonker said of the time spent on cross-examinations, warning he is going to think “hard” over the weekend about enforcing time limits “unless the defendants can start focusing on something that really matters.” Read more Detroit Free Press.

And with that he limited the time for the defense attorneys yesterday.

The on going trial of the two remaining defendants continue and we owe it to them to follow the coverage of their trial through to the end. Julie Kelly from American Greatness has been covering the trial. Here is her post setting the trial up:

FBI Won’t Let Facts Get In the Way of a Good Story


It’s the same blueprint every time. The public is finally catching on…

Here is how the Whitmer hoax was played.

Trial of Gov Whitmer Kidnapping Hoax – What Country is this?

“FBI assets repeatedly confirm that even by August 2020, there was no plan to kidnap and kill Whitmer. So they turned up the heat and added another FBI agent to sucker the targets.”


The very best of the swamp.

    Why care? It’s a show trial. They will be convicted. We all know they will be convicted. If they were not going to be convicted the trial would not be on television. Justice has a different meaning now that it did when I wore a uniform in defense of this nation. I would not wear that uniform today.

    I maintain the FBI is a rogue federal agency. This rogue status has been a long time in the making. Generations of FBI personnel have worked under corrupt management starting J Edgar and those generations spawned succeeding generations of corrupt bureaucrats who think they are above the law. This multigenerational corruption is not limited to the FBI but is widespread in federal alphabet soup law enforcement agencies: DEA, ATF et al. Between the so-called Patriot Acts and the War on Drugs these agencies have drifted in to the netherworld of the nefarious. What was once unprecedented is not precedent. This has been a long time in the making but we are now at the culminating point. Should the Harris/Biden regime get their 87,000 clown Lois Lerner Legion activated and armed there will be no dissent in America. None.

    The fix is in.

    Hopefully, the jury is not full of recently-graduated social studies majors (aka Karl Marx acolytes).

    Can’t let the defense team bore or confuse the Jury. That’s the job of the prosecution.
    Well, at least they have good grounds for a retrial now.

    Tucker handled this in good fashion the other night:
