In the petition, Watkins alleged that while in a county jail in Ohio, she was stripped naked and left “in a cell with lights on 24 hours a day for 4 days in full view of everyone.”

what the actual f? that’s not okay to do to anyone. i guess by violating her civil rights they’re setting up a nice clear path to throwing out all charges.

"Watkins was present not as an insurrectionist, but to provide security to the speakers at the rally,” according to the filing.

And yet…

The rally was held on the ellipse, not here.

Did they desert their client?

By “Secret Service” she meant an Uber driver who was secretly driving Lyft on the side. Totally innocent mistake.

wow. Here’s a link

But in a filing on Monday, Watkins’ attorney said she had merely spoken with some agents while passing through a security checkpoint.
“Counsel in no way meant to imply that Ms. Watkins met with the Secret Service,” A.J. Kramer, Watkins’ court-appointed defense lawyer, wrote. “A better verb would have been ‘encountered.’"

AJ Kramer sounds like he’s overworked. A lawyer should help a client keep her story straight, but maybe a court appointed counsel is left to clean up the worst of the messes and hope for the best.

The clarification:

Maybe Mittens is just trying to flatter Tromp into not splitting off and forming his own party.

It’s weird that they’re so deeply committed to not getting to the bottom of which commie antifa are responsible for it so they can keep grandstanding…

(Narrator: it wasn’t actually weird at all.)

Mittens has supposedly been meeting with other less insane conservatives about beating him to the punch. And the details sound a lot better thought out and practical than Team Well Done Steak.

Apparently expecting a small party and talking about using the cross endorsement strategy that works well for the Working Families Party. The idea being to side step primary challenges on the right, while cross endorsing where they don’t feel the need to directly challenge a candidate. With a side salad of deliberately bolstering the “moderate” wing of the DNC (ie Joe Manchin). The deeper scuttlebutt says that a lot of those major GOP donors currently cutting ties are on board.

I don’t know if he has the solid medium rare steak to pull the trigger though.

“He went there as an American citizen to protest, an event that was urged on by our former president — to protest an issue that Tom felt very strongly about,” attorney James Monroe, told the court. “That’s protecting the Constitution.”
The judge noted that until Jan. 6, Webster, a married father of three who owns a landscaping business, appeared to have a “proud and impressive record” as a public servant, according to the Times.

Why does that even matter, though? What does it matter how long you haven’t violently lunged at police officers (or anyone, really) and tried to gouge their eyes out?
Do they think maybe he was doing it…ironically? Because you know what they say…

(Also, I bet if they dug into his record as an officer they’d find some shady stuff.)
