Irwin Schiff Trial update by Mike Golden

3 Old Comments:

The irony is that people are watching and listening to all of this and the Gvt. should at least make an attempt to abide by some fair conduct in the courtroom. The result of this behaviour will impact Americans financial decision making to whether or not they will support this Gvt. in the long-run. Remember, the supposed law is a tax on income and certainly Americans can change their finances in a way to reduce income so that their taxable responsibility will shrink the total pool of revenue available for the Federal gvt.

I'm being repetitive, I posted this down under one of yesterday's blogs, but I think (hope) it's an important point and hope it doesn't get missed.

One comment I wanted to throw in, in case Irwin or anyone involved is reading is: If someone with the IRS or the judge throws out some IRC sections and says those are the sections that establish the so-called liability (for 'any tax' being submitted on 'any form', etc.) -- then don't those sections have to be shown on the indictment?

They can't just go around and charge you with violating a statute that they don't disclose until the trial, can they? (I know they do -- but they shouldn't, or aren't supposed to as a matter of law, are they?)

Some food for thought. -- cmw

Are all the witnesses sitting in court before & after they are called in to testify?
If so, that's wrong! Witnesses have to be excluded from the trial, except for when they testify!
