United States v. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 (1992), was a U.S. Supreme Courtcase concerning the presentation of exculpatory evidence to a grand jury, ruling that the federal courts do not have the supervisory power to require prosecutors to present exculpatory evidence to the grand jury. The opinion was written by Justice Scalia, and the dissent by Justice Stevens.[1]

 

The question addressed by the court was whether a district court may properly dismiss an indictment when the prosecutor withheld “substantial exculpatory evidence” that could lead the grand jury to reject the indictment, but that does not necessarily rise to the level of prosecutorial misconduct, which would require the dismissal of an indictment.[2] The significance of the ruling lies not only in its definition of the duty of the prosecutor in regard to presenting exculpatory evidence before the grand jury, but also in its definition of the grand jury's accusatory role.[1]

 

The ruling protects prosecutors who withhold "substantial exculpatory evidence" in order to obtain an indictment, as the role of the grand jury is not to determine guilt, but rather to decide whether there is enough evidence of a crime; exculpatory evidence can be presented at trial. Justice Stevens' dissent focused on the argument that a prosecutor's failure to present substantially exculpatory evidence is a form of prosecutorial misconduct, but that nevertheless, the prosecutor need not "ferret out and present all evidence that could be used at trial to create a reasonable doubt as to defendant's guilt."[2]

if you want to see a "Citizens Grand Jury", wait until Trump starts his taxpayer funded pep rally on the fourth of July. There will be citizens stocking DC with signs "Impeach Trump" or "Imprison Trump" for miles.

Criminal Indictment Of Special Counsel Robert Mueller By Citizens Grand Jury

WASHINGTON, June 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Larry Klayman, a former federal prosecutor and the founder of Freedom Watch (www.freedomwatchusa.org) announced the criminal indictment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller by a citizens grand jury for the alleged crimes of witness tampering, obstruction of justice, attempting to suborn perjury and other illegalities.

 

A copy of the indictment, jury instructions, verdict form and related documents can be found on Freedom Watch's website along with a video of the grand jury proceedings. Filming the proceedings as well as offering testimony about Mueller's alleged illegal grand jury leaks was Jason Goodman, CEO of Crowdsource the truth. The video of the proceedings can also be found at the links below:

 

In a landmark case styled United States v. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 (1992), Justice Antonin Scalia ruled that the grand jury does not belong to any of the three branches of government, but rather to the American people. Indeed, several states have citizens grand juries.

Klayman had this to say as the prosecutor who procured this indictment:

 

"On June 12, 2019, a citizens grand jury comprised of eight jurors heard testimony and considered other evidence principally from Dr. Jerome Corsi, who had been a target of Special Counsel Mueller's so-called Russian collusion investigation and voted out a true bill of indictment based on Mueller's primarily having threatened Corsi with indictment if he did not agree to lie under oath implicating President Donald Trump in criminal activity. In addition, the citizens grand jury indictment addresses alleged illegal and unconstitutional surveillance and criminal grand jury leaks concerning Corsi."

"This criminal indictment of Mueller is both historic and the first of its kind, particularly since it is clear that the Department of Justice, in the end, protects its own. See Solomon, "Feds Gone Wild: DOJ's Stunning Inability to Prosecute its Own Bad Actors," The Hill (June 13, 2019).

 

"While other watchdog groups, such as the group which I founded Judicial Watch and left in 2003 to run for the U.S. Senate in Florida, mainly just get documents through the Freedom of Information Act ('FOIA') and then looks to a compromised government to take action, Freedom Watch's Justice League seeks to itself mete out justice on behalf of We the People."

 

"Now that Mueller had been indicted, he will be tried, a conviction will be sought before a people's court, and if convicted a suitable sentence meted out.1 There is no other alternative to restore the rule of law to the nation, as our system of justice has been compromised and corrupted by the establishments of both political parties, who circle the wagons and in the end protect themselves at the expense of the American people."
