Exclusive: American Bar Association Distances Itself from Watergate Prosecutor who Called for Prosecution of Trump Family, Associates

Published

on

The American Bar Association (ABA) begrudgingly distanced itself from a former executive, who claims association with the ABA in her Twitter bio, after she made egregiously authoritarian remarks on Thursday morning.

“I firmly believe the Constit [sic] permits indicting a sitting president, but if DOJ disagrees, indicting his children, the Trump Org & Foundation for their roles in wrongdoing is a great alternative — or addition,” said Jill Wine-Banks on Twitter, linking to a Washington Post opinion piece.

Here’s the problem: There is absolutely zero proof of any “wrongdoing” on behalf of the President Donald J. Trump, or his family. Yet the former executive director of the ABA, the largest professional organization for lawyers in America, which claims to “promote competence, ethical conduct and professionalism,” wants to throw Trump’s family and friends in prison for nothing in order to punish him.

Wine-Banks was also a prosecutor in the Watergate scandal and General Counsel for the U.S. Army.

Wine-Banks’ Twitter profile says that she is the COO of the ABA, which might lead people to think that she is, perhaps, the COO of the ABA. But according to the ABA’s associate executive director Carol Stevens, who became militant when Big League Politics reached out for comment, that is not the case.

“Jill Wine-Banks is not the COO of the ABA. She left the ABA in 1990 (arriving in 1987) and has not been in any leadership position since then,” Stevens said when asked if Wine-Banks’ authoritarian positions and thuggery represented the views of the ABA.

When asked if Wine-Banks was lying about being the COO of the organization, Stevens said she “can only confirm that [Wine-Banks] is not the COO of ABA.”

Pressing further, BLP asked for an answer to the original question – whether Wine-Banks’ views represented those of the ABA – considering that Wine-Banks claims association with organization.

“No.” Stevens said bluntly. “She has no currently [sic] relationship with the ABA and has not had one since 1990. Please direct this to her, the Army and the Watergate Committee. And learn to read a twitter bio.”

Stevens is the former Managing Editor of News at USA Today. 

The ABA only (rudely) distanced itself from Wine-Banks call for action, which was decidedly antithetical to the American justice system, after questioning from this pesky reporter. So much for “ethical conduct and professionalism.”

In September, the ABA called for a delay in the confirmation vote of Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Report: Ghislane Maxwell Being “Moved from Cell to Cell” to Avoid “Assassins”

They fear another Epstein incident.

Published

on

Longtime Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislane Maxwell is reportedly being “moved from cell to cell” to prevent any potential assassination attempts while in jail, according to an anonymous source close to the heiress who spoke to the Daily Mail.

Maxwell is being detained at MDC Brooklyn, a federal detention facility. It was originally feared she’d be placed in the Manhattan Detention Complex, the facility where the shocking death of infamous pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein took place. Maxwell is being federally charged with six counts relating to her alleged participation in Epstein’s underage sex trafficking operation, after being arrested at a remote New Hampshire home.

She is also someone who isn’t posh or prissy. She is being moved from cell to cell and sometimes has a cellmate, sometimes not. They [the authorities] are terrified someone will try to kill her so they keep moving her around.

The Department of Justice is taking extraordinary precautions in safeguarding Maxwell within the federal jail facility, doubtlessly seeking to avoid a repeat of the shocking Epstein death that continues to cast a shadow over the American criminal justice system.

The Daily Mail has reported on another supposed (former) Maxwell associate, who claims that Epstein’s former madame has video evidence of the billionaire’s elite political and financial connects engaging in the sexual abuse of minors. Epstein and Maxwell allegedly procured the footage for use as dirt, if they were ever threatened with prosecution for criminal activities.

Maxwell’s first court appearance is currently slated for Friday.
