Best Legal Exchange of the Day (so far)

Hold me closer, Tiny Hands-er.

I think I like this judge:

A federal judge on Monday refused to delay Stephen K. Bannon’s trial next week after the Justice Department called anoffer by the former Trump aide to testify before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection a “last-ditch attempt to avoid accountability” on charges of criminal contempt of Congress.

“I see no reason for extending this case any longer,” U.S. District Judge Carl J. Nichols said in rejecting a host of Bannon’s defensesafter a hearing,including his contention that Donald Trump had claimed executive privilege over his testimony and documents. The judge narrowed Bannon’s defenses at trial mainly to whether he understood the deadlines for answering lawmakers’ demands…

When [Bannon attorneys David I. Schoen and M. Evan Corcoran] objected after the ruling, “What’s the point of going to trial if there are no defenses?”

Nichols simply answered, “Agreed.”

That’s gonna leave a mark.

      Not sure if an anarchist like bannon can use the “I was so blinded by my patriotism that I broke some laws while also being unfaithful to my spouse newt gingrich” defense.
