Irwin Schiff Trial update by Mark Yannone
Our government's ability to incarcerate innocent people is evidenced by the number of those being exonerated, most often through DNA evidence. These wrongful convictions evidence our judicial system's failure. Trial Logs is currently covering the government's prosecution of those who question the application of the income tax laws. It is our hope that this coverage will help us understand the failings of our justice system and help those struggling to comprehend this nation's income tax laws.

Aren't there enough murderers, rapists, thieves, & child molesters running wild in America to be wasting time & legal resources trying to put non-violent, old men in prison???
What the hell is going on here?!!!
Who authorized this??!
Let's put a stop to the nonsense NOW!
It is utterly asinine!!!
Excuse me. The "rant" wasn't that Irwin, Erwin or Irvin didn't "pay his bills...", it was that Irwin, Erwin or Irvin didn't pay off his challenge money when it was won. He was sued for that.
Spin spin spin.
I agree, and not only because Irwin is a nonviolent senior citizen, but because Irwin is not guilty of violating any law.
I cannot stress enough that in this case the law requires the government to prove that Irwin had a specific legal duty, that Irwin failed to perform that duty, and that Irwin failed to perform with full knowledge that he had a legal duty to perform.
The government has not tried to prove that Irwin had a legal duty. Instead, the prosecutor is depending on the judge to tell the jury to merely assume that the legal duty has been proven to exist. The prosecutor cannot prove his case, and everyone in that courtroom knows it, so he is just going to skip that requirement and depend on the judge to tell the jury what they think the law is, regardless of what the law actually says in black and white.
Of course the judge and the prosecutor won't allow any discussion of the law! Of course! How could they allow Irwin Schiff to reveal that the prosecutor's claims and the judge's opinion directly contradict the written law?
After hearing Judge Dawson’s Jury instructions I am, once again, in awe of and grateful to one of the authors of the Constitution, Thomas Jefferson. Isn’t it amazing he had the vision to know that JURY NULIFICATION would one day be the only way a man could receive justice in a federal court. When he wrote, “During a jury trial the jury is the only authority and if they find the law to be unfair or that a judge has overstepped his authority then they, the jury, can and should do the just thing. And when they post their verdict announce, for all the world to hear, that such law or judge should be changed, reprimanded or judged himself.
We, the true patriots, must all hope at least one member of the jury understands this most important element of our jury system.
I guess it’s time I tell the truth. I think Mr. Schiff is innocent but I need my job as an IRS agent so I lad to write those thing my boss and Judge Dawson told me to. Didn’t I?

The IRS has filed a proof of claim in this case, IF they will file the supporting documentation required by Rule 3001, I will pay whatever is required.
File the supporting documentation!
Gee Whiz has America gone Mad?
Full trial, and I use that word loosely, and no filed supporting documentation as required.
No answer to my "privilege" question...
What is wrong with all the Socialist/Communists that support their way of thinking?
At least they could prove themselves with something other than conjecture...come on F.B. put up.
Whoooeey. That Mike the Radio Rebel needs to lay off the weed. He has killed far too many brain cells already and he didn't have that many to spare...
Do you wonder what Judge Dawson looks like? Would you like a couple of pictures of Judge Dawson for your wallet or to put on your Christmas cards or to throw darts at?
Then go to;
and thank me later!
