In all likelihood, the prosecution of the rioters was the brainchild of Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff who saw cracking down on the Anti-Trump rioters as a way to curry favor with the new regime. Unfortunately, the Trump Administration cares far more about prosecuting White men for buying athletic tape than prosecuting Anarchists who assaulted his supporters. Kerkhoff jumped the gun in the early days of the Trump Administration, and now it is clear that the Trump DOJ is on an Inglorious Bastards-style hunt for “Nahtzee Scalps.
According to her LinkedIn, Kerkhoff, is in her 14th year as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. At 43, Kerkhoff is one year older than U.S. Attorney Tim Cullen. While Kerkoff languishes in her DC office, Trump has nominated
Cullen for a lifetime federal judgeship.
An anecdote of three men charged for self-defense:
In October 2017 an attendee of the Richard Spencer speech at the University Florida fired a single warning shot after Antifa struck his vehicle with a baton. The driver of the vehicle, a passenger, and the man who fired the shot were arrested and charged with attempted murder. The driver pled guilty in return for an agreement to testify against the shooter.
But the shooter pled no contest to possession of a firearm by a felon and an aggravated assault charge. The snitch was no longer needed, but the government still held his no-contest plea to a charge of accessory to attempted first-degree murder. The government, surprised they had got the man to plea to such a trumped-up charge, only asked for a 17-month sentence for their witness. The judge had none of it, and all the apologies and disavowals did nothing to prevent the imposition of a 5-year sentence. The passenger who did not plea, had his charges dropped, likely in return for not contesting extradition to Texas where he was already facing charges.
The vindictive nature of the system is ironically reducing the incentives to snitch. The man who refused to plea was sent home. The shooter was given a sentence equivalent to the maximum penalty in Florida for felony possession of a firearm. And the snitch was stuck with accessory to attempted First-Degree Murder. They always say crime does not pay, but it is a hell of a lot more profitable than copping a plea with the Feds.
Gangsters, then and now
Over dinner, a seasoned and well-respected White-Collar criminal defense attorney recently told me how he made sure the other defendants in a conspiracy case did not plead. He informed me that he disliked Joint Defense Agreements. Rather, White Collar defense attorneys quickly gain a reputation within their legal market. If an attorney gains a reputation for having their clients flip, other attorneys will quickly freeze them out of joint settlement negotiations or decline to share evidence.
A similar phenomenon was observed among the local mafia defense attorneys back in the day. Those men ate together at the same Italian restaurants and sent their daughters to the same Catholic schools. Having a client snitch could have severe professional repercussions for their attorneys as it was typical for a mafioso to pay the legal bills for their underlings.
The top local White-Collar defense attorneys are now more likely to attend shul than the Columbus Day Parade. But the same tools of ethnic solidarity and punishing defectors are still applied. What we need are our own cadre of Pro-White lawyers who trust each other and understand the risks of a federal plea deal.
The rules of every state leave the acceptance of plea agreements to the absolute discretion of clients. However, it is a lawyer’s duty to ensure that a client’s decision to plead is an informed decision.
Only our growing circle of pro-White attorneys can ensure that a client appreciates that any ADL-vetted judge will see you as worse than Al Qaeda come sentencing. Why not take the stand and make your case to the jury, when a judge may torch any alleged White Nationalist’s sentencing agreement? Come what may you can expose the kangaroo prosecution in open court and earn the respect of both prisoners and prosecutors as part of that elite 2% of federal defendants who refuse to plead.
