    One of the two senior prosecutors in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office who quit last month said he believes Donald Trump is “guilty of numerous felony violations,” and it was a “grave failure of justice” for the newly-elected DA to not prosecute the case. Last month Mark Pomerantz submitted his letter of resignation, seemingly in protest over the decision by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to not prosecute the former president. His longtime predecessor, DA Cyrus Vance, had convened a grand jury prior to his retirement. “Mr. Pomerantz, 70, a prominent former federal prosecutor and white-collar defense lawyer who came out of retirement to work on the Trump investigation, resigned on the same day as Carey R. Dunne, another senior prosecutor leading the inquiry,” The New York Times reports. “Mr. Bragg’s decision was ‘contrary to the public interest,’ he wrote.” “The team that has been investigating Mr. Trump harbors no doubt about whether he committed crimes — he did,” Pomerantz added. “I am convinced that a failure to prosecute will pose much greater risks in terms of public confidence in...
    PHOENIX (AP) — The attorney representing the private company that oversaw the Arizona Senate’s partisan review of Maricopa County’s 2020 election results is trying to quit after a series of losses in cases brought by groups seeking records of the “audit.” The move to withdraw by attorney Jack Wilenchik is opposed by American Oversight, a government watchdog group that has for months been seeking records held by Florida-based Cyber Ninjas. American Oversight’s lawyer said in a court filing Monday that allowing Wilenchik to quit will just delay resolution of the case and prevent the public from knowing how the Senate and its contractors conducted the review. And it said he has not given the court any reason to allow such delay and has continued his “pugnacious approach” to defending his client in the face of repeated losses and court orders to hand over the records. “In sum, the jig is up, and Cyber Ninjas’ longstanding effort to avoid disclosure of public records relating to the audit would seem to be finally coming to an end,” American Oversight attorney Keith...

    Kyle Rittenhouse listens to defense attorney John Pierce during an extradition hearing in Lake County Courthouse, in Waukegan, Illinois on October 30, 2020. Nam Y. Huh/Pool/AP Photos A controversial defense attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old accused of killing two people and injuring another amid unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has withdrawn from the case. John M. Pierce's announcement came just hours after the prosecution filed a motion raising potential conflicts of interest. Another Rittenhouse defense attorney, Andrew Calderon, also withdrew from the case on Thursday. Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, was charged with reckless homicide after fatally shooting two people and injuring a third with an AR-15 style rifle during a BLM protest in August. He pleaded not guilty and said he acted out of self-defense. A court commissioner ruled, also on Thursday, that he will stand trial on charges of felony homicide and other crimes.

    A law firm that helped file President Trump’s federal court challenge to the crucial election results in Pennsylvania is seeking permission to withdraw from the case amid outside pressure and reported internal discord. Lawyers with Porter, Wright Morris & Arthur said in court papers they’d “reached a mutual agreement” with the Trump campaign that it “will be best served” without the firm. The request, filed late Thursday, came after the anti-Trump Republican group the “Lincoln Project” attacked Porter, Wright and another firm for participating in what it called “unwarranted and dangerous attacks on our democracy.” “Their employees should resign in protest,” the group of disaffected Republicans tweeted on Tuesday. Plans were also reportedly in the works for $500,000 worth of TV and digital ads. At least one Porter, Wright lawyer has quit and there have been meetings at which staffers objected to the firm’s election-related work for Trump and the Republican Party, the New York Times reported Monday. In response to the firm’s move, Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtagh said, “Cancel Culture has finally reached the courtroom.” “Leftist mobs descended...
    US President Donald Trump has fired a top federal prosecutor who refused to leave office, Attorney General William Barr has said. Geoffrey Berman, the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said on Friday that he had learned he was "stepping down" in a press release. Mr Berman insisted he would stay in post and continue his investigations. But on Saturday Mr Barr announced that he had asked the president to remove him immediately, and he had done so. Mr Berman oversaw the prosecution of a number of Mr Trump's associates. They included the president's former lawyer Michael Cohen, who has served a prison sentence for lying to Congress, the US legislature, and election campaign finance fraud. Mr Berman's department has also been investigating the conduct of Rudy Giuliani, Mr Trump's current personal lawyer. He also lead the investigation into Jeffrey Epstein and earlier this month accused Prince Andrew of "shutting the door" on his probe. Related TopicsUnited StatesWilliam Barr
