In this clip below, Burkman’s attorney Scott Grabel claims he has “spoken” to Alan Dershowitz by “email” and is not sure whether or not he will be able to be “retained,” but is hoping to have a place for him to speak on, once again, “constitutional law.” This is the same Alan Dershowitz whose shining catastrophic moment, the one that will likely be remembered in law history for centuries to come, was the singularly most convoluted, intellectually dishonest, and vapid attempt at arguing that Donald Trump couldn’t be impeached due to an abuse of power, while then arguing he didn’t say he said that, but that if he had said it it would be true, but it isn’t, so don’t say he said that. Daily Dot’s Zachary Petrizzo reported that Michigan Attorney General lawyer Richard Cunningham strongly opposed the motion to have a constitutional witness, before the bizarre Dershowitz revelation, because “An attorney’s role is to argue the law, it is not to testify as to what the law is.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Burkman’s lawyer is consulting with famously unscrupulous, self-aggrandizing, there is no law unless I say it’s a law, Alan Dershowitz. This is about a series of robocalls, received in various states, targeting predominantly Black and brown communities across the country, that attempted to scare potential voters away from early voting, by lying about how early voter rolls would be used to imprison people based on outstanding debts or warrants.Law & Crime reports that Dershowitz has told them that he is “not involved in that case,” referring to Burkman’s robocall fraud. Dershowitz also says that he is not involved at all with Trump election lawsuits. Burkman’s attorney, Grabel told Law & Order that “If Mr. Dershowitz isn’t working on ‘election issues’ I stand corrected.”Real scumbag shit. Makes sense that Dershowitz is involved—even tangentially. George Bernard Shaw once wrote that one should “Never wrestle with pigs. You both get dirty and the pig likes it.” In this case, everyone involved might like it. No bad press and all of that. Only the best people.- Advertisement –

“If there is any LGU that can do this, please let the province know so we can coordinate,” Lacson said. Some 1,600 Negrenses stranded across the Philippines due to travel restrictions brought by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak have registered in the Capitol’s online database. The provincial government manages two patient care centers for returning Negrenses required to undergo a 14-day mandatory quarantine before getting a clearance to go home to their respective towns and cities. “You have to provide food. You have to provide health workers, and of course, you have to provide security in coordination with the Philippine National Police,” Lacson said. He however noted that setting up a quarantine facility is not just a matter of having available rooms. These are the Provincial Healing Center at the “Yolanda” housing site in EB Magalona that can accommodate some 200 individuals, and the Mambukal Resort in Murcia town that can accept 100 persons. Of the 27 OFWs, three have tested positive for Covid-19 and have been isolated in the Provincial Healing Center. (PNA) BACOLOD City – Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson has encouraged local government units (LGUs) in Negros Occidental build more quarantine facilities to accommodate returning Negrenses. “They can accept up to 30 for now, but they’re still preparing for more. I’d like to thank Mayor Bading Escalante for his willingness to open up his city in accepting Negrenses for quarantine,” Lacson said. He said he has learned that Silay City also has homes that can be used but he has yet to receive a formal offer from the city government that these can be used as a quarantine facility. He said Cadiz City, headed by Mayor Salvador Escalante Jr., has set up a quarantine area in a “Yolanda” housing site, which can accommodate an initial 30 people. All Negrenses who came home since April have been quarantined in either of the two facilities, but a group of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who returned to Negros Occidental on April 28 has been moved to the Go Hotel in Bacolod after the province signed a contract with the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration for their transfer. “The more quarantine facilities we have, the faster we can bring in Negrenses,” said Lacson.
