I understand that our computer has been projecting the collapse of the United States most likely coming into play in 2025. The war between Red & Blue is just off the charts. For Pelosi to even say that it is Trump’s burden to now prove he is innocent is just an example of how the United States is crumbling into dust. Everything generations have fought and died for to protect American freedom is right there in her words fiction. The Constitution is supposed to be Innocent until Proven Guilty, and the standard of proof is BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT.
This incident of Donald Trump illustrates how corrupt the grand jury system truly is and courts refuse to allow the public access to even how indictments are obtained. A prosecutor ONLY presents his facts that are cherry-picked. He has NO OBLIGATION to present any contrary evidence. The Supreme Court has held that it is not the role of the Grand Jury, but the jury at trial. I fully disagree with that ruling for the prosecutors routinely LIE to get indictments because they remain sealed and we NEVER get to see their lies. They can say anything they want and destroy a person’s life and then have ABSOLUTE immunity to do so.
Lawyers for decades have said a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich because the system is outright corrupt beyond compare. That phrase was first coined by a New York State Judge named Sol Wachtler (born 1930). Wachtler was the former chief judge of New York state who coined that term in a January 1985 interview with the New York Daily News‘ Marcia Kramer and Frank Lombardi. The relevant portion:
“In a bid to make prosecutors more accountable for their actions, Chief Judge Sol Wachtler has proposed that the state scrap the grand jury system of bringing criminal indictments.
Wachtler, who became the state’s top judge earlier this month, said district attorneys now have so much influence on grand juries that “by and large” they could get them to “indict a ham sandwich.”
A month later, the New York Times noted that Wachtler believed grand juries “operate more often as the prosecutor’s pawn than the citizen’s shield.” This belief—that prosecutors can get grand juries to do whatever they want them to do is universal and if this is not seriously changed, we will see massive civil unrest tear the system apart limb for limb.
The “ham sandwich” term has been universally quoted among lawyers albeit the public perhaps did not hear it and are oblivious to the law. Tom Wolfe included the saying in the 1987 novel The Bonfire of the Vanities.
“But mainly you used the grand jury to indict people,” Wolfe wrote, “and in the famous phrase of Sol Wachtler, chief judge of the State Court of Appeals, a grand jury would ‘indict a ham sandwich,’ if that’s what you wanted.”
There is way more than enough to indict Pelosi of fraud and her husband for all the inside trading that has been alleged against her. That’s enough to indicate her and then she should be declared guilty until proven innocent.
The time is rapidly approaching when the United States will exist no more. It will be divided we stand. NEVER let your child EVER marry a prosecutor! They will regret it.
