TRUMP'S GEORGIA TRIAL COULD START IN 55 DAYS - 8.30.23
SEASON 2 EPISODE 25: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN
A-Block (1:44 ) SPECIAL COMMENT: The Trial of Donald Trump and the Trump 19 could begin in Atlanta on October 23rd. In such a low-key manner that it barely got noticed, Fonni Willis has now formally petitioned Judge Scott McAfee to MOVE UP the trial date for everybody – and reverse his previous ruling to sever the trial of Ken Chesebro from the entire roster of 19 defendants. It would mean everybody - not just Chesebro - goes on trial just 55 days from now, instead of on March 4.
And thus we are presented with the reality that the Chesebro, the man who may do the most to put Trump in prison BEFORE the 2024 election may be the man he turned to, to engineer this half-baked plan to overturn the 2020 election. Way to go Cheese-Bro!
Now we need to know when the State of Georgia and maybe the Department of Justice will put this Georgia State Legislator Colton Moore behind bars. This is the State Senator with eyes on opposite sides of his head and he is the one who tried to get a special session of the Georgia senate called so he could defund the Fulton County D-A’s office, and he is the one who previously revealed he believes that the Trump 19, if convicted, face death by lethal injection and he is now the one serving up on the propaganda channel “Real America’s Voice” a threat to send troopers to arrest Fonni Willis and make a Trumpian stochastic promise of Civil War.
In Washington, Congressman Andy Clyde is on the House Appropriations Committee and he says he has TWO amendments ready to tag on to the Fiscal 2024 budget for Commerce Justice and Science which his committee will take up next month after the recess and guess who they defund and no it’s not Aileen Cannon. Clyde thinks he can take out Willis AND Alvin Bragg in New York AND Jack Smith (and he’s wrong about that, which I'll explain in detail).
B-Block (19:59 ) IN SPORTS: The complete failure of the Colorado Rockies' security staff as two fans charge and hold an Atlanta Braves star underscores that since 9/11 sports has adopted only "security theater" - not real security. It was the worst breach in baseball in nearly a week! The White Sox finally have an explanation as to how two fans got shot in the bleachers last Friday and it involves hiding a gun in "folds of belly fat." (25:35 ) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Shouldn't have praised the urban Trump Mugshot Mural until you saw what the thought bubble said, Charlie Kirk and Jesse Watters; Matt and the sound of one hand Schlapping; and the Katy, Texas, School Board Moronic Fascist who banned a book because it used "they" instead of "he" or "she" except that's not why they used they; THEY used THEY because it was grammatically correct and Morgan Calhoun is too stupid to know it.
C-Block (31:49 ) THINGS I PROMISED NOT TO TELL: Running that clip of O.J. Simpson endorsing Vivek Ramaswamy provided a good laugh but ever since I've been haunted of memories of what he did in 1994, how nobody believed it was possible, and how in LA media in the '80s and '90s we knew he was a phony and an evil man, but we weren't able to probe harder to learn what a monster he truly was.
