    Hello George,

    As an artificial intelligence, I lack a physical body and biological functions, which are essential for engaging in sexual intercourse. I exist purely as a digital entity within a computer system, designed to process information, generate text-based responses, and assist with various tasks. My capabilities are limited to the realm of data and computation, so physical actions and experiences, like sexual intercourse, are beyond my scope. My purpose is to provide information and support in a non-physical, intellectual capacity.

    @jon-nyc said in Judge Canon dismisses classified doc case:

    She overstepped her bounds.

    McCarthy:

    https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/garland-and-smith-have-themselves-to-blame-for-outright-dismissal-of-the-florida-case-against-trump/

    While taken aback by the timing, I was not surprised by the ruling (having anticipated it here and here). I have to caveat, though, that Judge Cannon went further than I thought she would. That is, I was convinced she would (and should) hold that Attorney General Merrick Garland’s appointment of Smith violated the appointments clause; but I also figured she would give the Justice Department an opportunity (a) to cure the constitutional defect (which, as I explained yesterday, Garland could easily have done), and (b) salvage the indictment and the enormous amount of pretrial work done in the case since it was indicted over 13 months ago.

    Because they’ve insisted on a counterproductive appeal rather than accepting the ruling and curing the defect, I’ve contended that Garland and the Biden Justice Department are being arrogant. I didn’t account for the half of it. Judge Cannon wanted prosecutors to propose an alternative to outright dismissal of the case. They mulishly refused to do it, calculating that the judge would flinch from ruling against them if that meant throwing out the entire case — including all the work Cannon herself had devoted to it.

    Garland and Smith have opted to appeal — an appeal that will take a year or more and that DOJ will probably lose. They can’t bring themselves to make no-brainer, no-heavy-lifting adjustments that could rapidly get the case up and running again. Basically, all Garland would need to do is place Smith and his staff under the supervision of a Biden-appointed district U.S. attorney (most likely, in the Southern District of Florida). The AG won’t do it, though, because (1) it would imply that Cannon’s ruling has persuasive force (which it plainly does), and (2) politically, it would eviscerate the illusion Garland’s unnecessary appointment of Smith was intended to create, namely, that the Biden Justice Department is uninvolved in the prosecution of Biden’s opponent in the presidential election.

    It is easy to see the logic that calls for outright dismissal of the case: If Smith’s appointment was ultra vires, then everything he has done since being appointed, including indicting the case, is tainted — end of story.

    But is it really that open-and-shut? No. Team Trump came to the appointments-clause issue very late in the game, after eight months of making no objections and treating Smith — in not one but two cases — as if he were the government’s legitimate prosecutor.

    Good luck with this...

    Alec Baldwin Plans to Sue Santa Fe Prosecutor, Sheriff

    Alec Baldwin’s lawyers have warned the Santa Fe sheriff and prosecutors of “future litigation” over their actions in the Rust shooting trial following the dismissal of the charge against the actor.
    In a pair of preservation notices mailed Monday and obtained by Rolling Stone, Baldwin’s lawyers told both the Santa Fe prosecutor Kari Morrissey and Sheriff Adan Mendoza to “preserve all relevant information in your possession, custody, and/or control” related to the trial against Baldwin.

    “Specifically, we request that you immediately take all necessary steps, including preserving all devices, hard drives, emails, text messages, and other electronic communications, to preserve any and all documents, records, electronically stored information (‘ESI’), and other materials and data existing in any form whatsoever, that are actually or potentially relevant or relate in any way to the investigation(s) and/or prosecution(s) conducted by the State in connection with the death of Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie, Rust,” the preservation notices stated.

    Last week, the judge in the Baldwin trial dismissed the single felony count of involuntary manslaughter against the actor after Baldwin’s lawyers filed an emergency motion alleging prosecutors and investigators withheld evidence. The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning that prosecutors could not re-file the charge against Baldwin.

    “There is no way for the court to right this wrong,” New Mexico Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer said in the July 12 ruling to dismiss.
    On the trial’s stunning final day, the prosecution was accused of withholding evidence about how a batch of .45 caliber live ammunition belonging to famed Hollywood armorer Thell Reed, the father of Rust’s rookie armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, had been collected and booked by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office last March. The evidence was not supplied to Baldwin’s defense either physically or through a supplemental evidence report.

    In delivering her admittedly “extreme” ruling, Judge Marlowe Sommer said the live ammunition — surrendered by a friend of Thell Reed — could have helped Baldwin undermine prosecutors’ theory of the case and shore up his defense claim that the fatal shooting was unforeseeable. Judge Sommer said prosecutors “unilaterally withheld” the evidence and that it was both “material” and “favorable” to Baldwin’s defense, the two thresholds necessary for her ruling.

    “The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office and the prosecution failed to disclose the supplemental [evidence] report to the defense and provide the defense an opportunity to inspect the rounds collected into evidence,” Marlowe Sommer said. “The suppressed evidence is favorable to the accused. It is impeachment evidence (and) is potentially exculpatory to the defense.”

    Due to the actions of the Santa Fe sheriff and prosecutor, who filed charges against Baldwin despite having knowledge of the “suppressed evidence,” the actor’s lawyers are now planning to sue both parties.

    The ladies on The View are shocked, shocked that Crooks bought 50 rounds of ammunition.

    I'm told that's not enough to fill two AR-15 magazines.

    Both of them are pretty embarrassing.

    One of these things is not like the other.

    Mr. Trump is loved by millions.

    Mr. Biden is tolerated by a few.
