Oh, look! Megyn Kelly found a new person of color to attack! This time, it’s Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend. Apparently, the girlfriend lied – not, as far as anyone knows, about what is expected to be key testimony: that shooter George Zimmerman was following Martin before shooting him but about being in the hospital on the day of his funeral.
Kelly breathlessly announced a “potential bombshell” in the case, that the girlfriend was “caught in a lie and a big one.” According to Kelly, that cast doubt on the rest of the case against George Zimmerman – one of Sean Hannity’s pet causes. And it seems as though the news came straight from Zimmerman’s attorney.
Kelly said condemningly that the reason the lie mattered was because it was under oath. But guest and former prosecutor Arthur Aidala made a convincing argument when he said, “In the 1990’s, when I was a prosecutor in Brooklyn, New York, when crime was rampant, if I lost every case where my ‘star witness’ (he made quote marks in the air), who had a rap sheet that was an inch thick, got caught in one lie, I’d lose every case. Jurors don’t hold witnesses to such a high degree, regarding one lie or two lies, especially if it’s about something that’s inconsequential.” Kelly's other guest, also a former prosecutor disagreed, though.
Yet, it wasn’t until the end of the second segment that Kelly acknowledged there were material “inconsistencies” from Zimmerman. By the way, Zimmerman’s wife is awaiting trial on charges of perjury, after having been accused of hiding money from the court and lying at her husband’s bail hearing. Kelly forgot to mention that factoid.
Give it up haters, George will walk.”
Um . . . not sure how Martin’s girlfriend committing “purgery” absolves Zimmerman of stalking, then killing, Martin — but, I suppose that makes sense in some alternate universe (i.e. Planet Wingnut.)
As for Meg’s legal prowess, I’ll only surmise that she’s as brilliant a legal mind as Ann Coulter . . .
Thanks for your comments. Very interesting.
Okay….I give. What is ‘purgery’? Is that a type of diarrhea?
These ‘baggers’ have their own alternate language to go along with the fantasy world they live in.
Give it up haters, George will walk. In George’s defense, the FBI stated in July 2012 George never profiled Trayvon.
DEVELOPING FUN FACTS:
Judge in George Zimmerman case signs subpoena for Trayvon’s Twitter, Facebook info
March 6, 2013|By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel
The judge in the George Zimmerman murder case on Monday signed orders, directing Twitter and Facebook to release to defense attorneys all of Trayvon Martin’s posted comments, photos, videos and messages plus his list of Facebook friends. Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson did the same for the state’s most important witness, the young Miami woman who was on the phone with Trayvon moments before Zimmerman shot him.
I’ve wondered what her record is in court since I first heard of her. But deep down inside, I’m not sure I wanna know.
Here are the relevant entries from Kelly’s Wiki article:
“After high school, she pursued an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Syracuse University and later obtained a J.D. from Albany Law School,. . . .”
“Following her graduation from Albany Law School in 1995, Kelly practiced law for nine years at Jones Day. She first worked as an associate in the Chicago office of Bickel & Brewer LLP, during which time she co-wrote an article for the American Bar Association’s journal Litigation entitled “The Conflicting Roles of Lawyer as Director.” While at Jones Day, Kelly served as an attorney for credit bureau Experian." (Note: This is the ENTIRE entry under “Career in Law.”)
Now, having seen the bit about Jones Day, I went to the Wiki entry for it and found this: “Jones Day is a global law firm headquartered in Washington D.C.. . . . Consistently ranked as one of the most prestigious in the world, the firm represents many of the world’s largest companies and financial institutions, and is best known for its litigation practice.” And, then there’s this intriguing bit:
“Jones Day is a full service, commercial law firm and has practice areas in:
Antitrust & Competition Law
Banking & Finance
Business and Tort Litigation (USA)
Business Restructuring & Reorganization
Corporate Criminal Investigations
Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation
Environmental Law, Health, & Safety
Financial Institutions Litigation & Regulation
Insurance & Recovery
Labor & Employment
Mergers & Acquisitions
Securities Litigation & SEC Enforcement
Very interesting that there’s nothing in those areas of practice that would qualify Kelly to speak with any legal authority on the criminal case at hand. Certainly, she’s entitled to speak her mind (bwahaha) as a private citizen offering an opinion, but would anyone hire a tax attorney or civil rights attorney to defend them in a murder case? It’s too bad that a lot of people forget that holding a law degree does NOT automatically qualify the holder as an expert in ALL forms of the law. But, I think it borders on the criminal for an attorney to misrepresent himself or herself as having expertise in a matter of law outside his or her specialty.
It doesn’t help that she struggles to pronounce half the terms right when she can suddenly prove she saw the inside of a law school at some point.
I actually tried finding her record one time. I only got one hit where she was listed, and all it told me was that the other lawyers at her firm seemed to like her. I took that as that I’d probably never sleep again if I did find it.
White = Good
Black = Bad
That’s all our viewers need to know.
Funny, this broad is pro-law, but is happy to work for a corporation that had more than a dozen employees arrested for criminal wrongdoings.
Martin’s girlfriend should bring this information up to all the media.
