The Jesuits call that a leap of faith. That conclusion is based on what exactly?

I've never met a good lawyer or prosecutor who won them all and I've practiced law for decades.

Can he have his day in court before we hang him?

I met him once at a house party two years ago but have known of him for decades. He is known as one of the best criminal lawyers in Chicago. What's not to like?

Actually, since we're talking legalities it is I who understands. You seem to speculate.

You make assumptions as to my field of expertise and of your abilities.
Anyway, I'd prefer not to derail the thread answering to your personal attacks, so if you will, please move along

I suspect that the governor has a real emotional problem. Narcissism or something. I'm not kidding -- he's dealing with an alternate reality now. Why would anyone default on an impeachment hearing instead of resigning? Does he think a knight in shining armor will save him? Is he about to pardon the entire IL prison populace? What's his game?

Confidential to Rod: your problems are not due to forces who want to raise taxes so get off that view.

Default Professional Help Needed

As I suspected, the mental health professionals out there think Rod is not exactly nuts, but that he has a narcissistic personality disorder. It's all about him and devil take the hindmost.
