For a lawyer to do less than his utmost is, I strongly feel, a betrayal of his client. Though in criminal trials one tends to focus on the defense attorney and his client the accused, the prosecutor is also a lawyer, and he too has a client: the People. And the People are equally entitled to their day in court, to a fair and impartial trial, and to justice.
I may have implied on several occasions to several different people that I may have been Jesus Christ, but I haven't decided yet what I am or who I am.
There is no question at all that Manson was sending Tex, Sadie, Katie, and Linda out on his mission of murder.
If you're honest with yourself, you're going to find out whether you truly love America, or whether your primary allegiance is to the Republican party.
Anyone who would look at me and say that Scalia would have done the same thing for Gore as Bush, I will personally nominate them for an Academy Award.
I'm trying to finish my book on the Kennedy assassination.
One of the people that wrote a forward to my book is Gerry Spence, whom I admire. Gerry is a friend of mine, and Gerry's perhaps the leading criminal defense attorney in the country.
The felonious five in their Supreme Court decision never said Gore did anything improperly in Florida.
The Florida Supreme Court wanted all the legal votes to be counted. The United States Supreme Court, on the other hand, did not want all the votes to be counted.
It was OK for the media to pursue Former President Clinton year after year for lying about a private, consensual sexual affair, but we have five justices who committed one of the biggest crimes in American History, and it ceased to be a big story.
You might not agree with me, but I always offer a lot of support.
For the first time in my literary career I have not gotten on the main talk shows in the morning. This year, I was turned down on all three shows.
It's unbelievable, there's a book out attacking Gore, when he's the most unfortunate loser in political history.
If the Tate premises, ladies and gentlemen, did not symbolize the establishment to Charles Manson, no residence, no premises, ever would.
This is America, not a banana republic.
It's my view that any conservative who loves his country has to be extremely concerned.
A national legal organization is giving very serious thought to using The Betrayal of America as a legal basis for asking the House Judiciary Committee to institute impeachment proceedings against these five justices.
Sometimes when someone is asking you a question you can become Socratic, and ask them a question, and have them answer their own question for them.
The votes of 60,000 Floridians were not counted. The Court threw out all 60,00 votes. And that's what the newspapers around the country are counting now.
I view myself primarily as a trial lawyer who happens to be writing, as opposed to a writer who happens to be a trial lawyer, so the audience is like a jury to me.
A very beautiful honey blonde, Sharon Tate, looked into the eyes of the man who the evidence shows just four and a half months later would order her tragic and violent death.
Just like I'm still angry with Simpson for getting by with two murders.
The ruling in the Paula Jones case is so silly.
And I think within the pages of The Betrayal of America I think I present an overwhelming case that these five justices were up to no good, and they deliberately set out to hand the election to George Bush.
I lost court cases and misdemeanor juries, but of felony jury trials I was successful 105 of 106 times.
Incidentally, Boies, I'm sure, is a very fine lawyer.
Although the evidence at this trial shows that Charles Manson was the leader of the conspiracy to commit these murders, there is no evidence that he actually personally killed any of the seven victims in this case.
If it's a close election, then it's better for the Supreme Court to pick the president, whether or not he won the election. It's just insane on its face.
So I don't blame Boies for the decision of the Court at all.
These people have elevated audacity to symphonic and operatic levels. The Florida Supreme Court relied on new law to resolve the election dispute down there.
