Marina Butina.  Good read about how the FBI and the "Deep State" is out of control.

Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on for the motherland.

Quote from: newrepublic
No reason was given, but her case had reached a critical point. Prosecutors were hoping to get her to plead guilty rather than go to trial, and had even agreed to drop the major charge against her: acting as an unregistered foreign agent of Russia. Born and raised in Siberia, she is terrified of solitary confinement. Fifteen days later, still in solitary, she signed the agreement, pleading guilty to the lesser charge, one count of conspiracy.

You know what?  Everything I've read says that solitary confinement is equivalent to torture.

What did they do?  They kept her in solitary confinement for months and weeks until she confessed/pleaded guilty.

*expletive deleted*ck it.  If she pressed for a retrial on grounds that they tortured her into pleading, I'd grant it.

Jail should NOT be used as a means of coercion to cause people to plead guilty to crimes they may not have committed.
