Over 85 Percent of Courtroom Proceedings Under Squelching
Is this a "Trial by Jury"?
Mr. George McDermott (Secret Justice) is observing
the trial of Elena Sassower, a co-founder of Center of Judicial Accountability,
Inc., taking place in Judge Brian Holeman's courtroom. Judge Holeman
has been granting all of the prosecutor's requests even before these are
stated. All of Ms. Sassower's requests and/or objections are "denied,
move along." Jury is kept in the dark as over 85 percent of
all courtroom proceedings take place under a squelching machine.
Government's witnesses (under subpoena) arrived
empty-handed, i.e., without any of the subpoenaed exculpatory evidence
("we thought that it will be not necessary") -- this also was and continues
to be OK with Judge Holeman. Even audiotapes (exculpatory evidence)
were purportedly destroyed by the government. Defendant has also been barred,
under the threat of being immediately imprisoned, by Judge Holeman
from asking any question relating to the events leading to the indictment,
i.e., the process of judicial nominations in the U.S. Senate. One of the
marshals present at the trial (and who requested to have his name
withheld from the public) told Mr. McDermott "I had never witnessed
anything like this!" Judge Holeman was confirmed by the U.S. Senate
as an associate judge on the Superior Court of the District of Columbia
for a term of fifteen years on October 24, 2003 and sworn just several
weeks ago (click

The trial will resume at 9.00 a.m., on Monday, April
Room 218m, D.C. Superior Court
500 Indiana Ave., Washington, D.C.
