Donald Trump Assassin Pleads Not Guilty in Las Vegas Court Appearance…

It’s a little odd to see a “not guilty” plea, considering Michael Sandford previously admitted to the plot to assassinate presidential candidate Donald Trump.

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A British citizen pleaded not guilty Wednesday to U.S. federal charges alleging he tried to grab a police officer’s gun to shoot presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at a Las Vegas campaign rally.

A judge set an Aug. 22 trial date for Michael Steven Sandford, 20, on charges of disrupting an official function and two firearm possession counts.

Sandford stood wearing a yellow jail jump suit with his federal public defense attorneys during his brief arraignment.

He responded, “Yes, I do,” when U.S. Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach asked whether he understood the nature of the charges against him. He could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

His attorneys, Brenda Weksler and Ryan Norwood, declined to comment outside court.

Sandford has been in custody since his arrest June 18 at the rally at the Treasure Island hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.  (read more)

      It seems strange that a kid that was known to be peaceful and not political, all of a sudden pulled the stunt he did. I wouldn’t put it past the globalists/government to have brained washed him into doing their dirty work. This is the reason Trump has to pick a V.P. as or more conservative than himself, if not they will kill him like JFK and they tried to Reagan!

        ^^Yes, this!^^ The not guilty plea allows him to keep his mouth completely shut. No psych eval or anything else that might reveal who his indoctrinaters and handlers have been. He can rest on his 5th A privilege, try to get the confession thrown out, etc. etc., plead that he never really intended to go forward with an assassination and was only speaking hyperbolically. In any event, with his lack of criminal record and other background factors, he’ll probably get little more than a slap on the wrist and an order to self-deport.

        On further consideration of the Reagan reference and the possibility of Bush family involvement (the Bush family were friends with Hinckley’s family–Scott Hinckley, the shooter’s brother, was an invitee to dinner with Neil Bush scheduled for the day after the assassination attempt; Poppy Bush also cooked up an elaborate ali-lie, using Barbara’s visit to a Tyler, TX beauty salon, to make it appear he was not in Dallas immediately before the JFK assassination, though records of the private aircraft he flew on and its owner indicate that he was in Dallas the day before and maybe early morning of the JFK assassination), the Bushes’ excusing themselves from the GOP convention becomes a really troubling harbinger. Poppy Bush is not a guy I’d expect to be content with sour grapes–his kids are nincompoops and wannabes, but he’s as cold-blooded, old-school CIA as anyone alive. Very very very concerning. Pray without ceasing!

        In other words, it will never happen!

            Ah man, I didn’t get to go either. You parents, I tell ya. 😊

            To be honest, I didn’t want to go, too many people I didn’t know. It held absolutely no appeal to me. I had a lot better things to save my money for like backpacking across the Midwest to the west coast upon graduation. Amtrak, Greyhound, car rental, no thumbs. Awesome experience.

            My mom didn’t want me to go, but since I was paying it for myself, she really couldn’t do anything. I did give her an itinerary with phone numbers of camp sites and Youth Hostels with dates of each location. If I was to change anything I would call. Plus, I called on a regular basis.

            As a parent now, I sure as heck do not want my child to go to spring break or across the country by herself. I think I’d lock her up. I don’t know how my Mom did it. Thank you Mom! You rocked!

      And for the record: autism is a cognitive disorder, not a mental disorder. Autistics can have mental disorders on top of their autism, but those disorders are not tied to their autism.
      As a person who has worked with students who are mentally handicapped (retardation and autism — full range of the spectrum) as well as the mentally disordered (from mild ADD to pretty bad cases of borderline). They are not the same!
      Autism, especially in its milder forms, doesn’t make the person violent — the violence you see from autists is of the reactive kind due to over-stimulation, and that’s usually from people pretty way up on the spectrum. Mental disorders on the other hand are another story.
      So Mom here is telling a story that isn’t adding up; autism isn’t what caused this dude to do the deed, and if he was diagnosed with autism, then the doctors likely did a mental/psychological workup on him…IF that happened, what did they find?
      And if no work up was done, then there’s no diagnosis of autism or anything else…which means Sonny boy was just an angry lefty with a plan to assassinate.

    Do you remember 22 year old Tommy DiMassimo? He’s the kid who jumped the barrier at Trump’s rally in Ohio on March 12th.

    The Treehouse posted this thread on him:

    Yesterday, he filed a motion with the court asking for permission to attend the GOP Convention. He is currently awaiting his trial on August 29th.

    “In the motion, Thomas DiMassimo swears he will abide by federal and local laws while at the July 18-21 convention. Judge Sharon Ovington didn’t rule immediately. DiMassimo’s attorney declined to comment, citing the judge’s admonition to both sides not to discuss the case publicly.”

    While the Judge didn’t rule immediately, later yesterday afternoon, Judge Sharon Ovington found DiMassimo had violated the conditions of his bond and ordered DiMassimo turned over to federal marshals for incarceration until arrangements are made for electronic home detention.

    <

    blockquote>”Ovington’s ruling didn’t explain what he did wrong, but court records stated that DiMassimo appeared with his attorney and admitted violating his bond. The conditions of his release on his own recognizance included not leaving the southern district of Ohio without court permission.

    She refused a government motion to revoke his bond but added conditions.”

    Who paid for his ticket (more than one) to hang out in the US? Who paid his living expenses for things like car(s) and an apartment in NJ that he got kicked out of. Why was he kicked out of an apartment? Why does his mother and step father keep saying he is smart when he got kicked out of school at age 14 or 15 due to behavioral problems? What is his delusion about living in the US instead of the UK where he belongs and would have some supervision? Does he get some kind of “check” for the handicapped (they have benefits for everything) that they were forwarding or pocketing? Why don’t his parents respect our immigration, visa and child/adult welfare laws instead of dumping his crazy self on the US? Was he dangerous in their home, especially since they have a toddler, and just conveniently let him follow one of his delusions? Why exactly did he (or they) think (if he CAN think) he could live in the US when he obviously cannot work or function beyond that of a mentally handicapped child? Nothing the parents say makes sense and is an elaborate rear end covering. His activities and associations in the US should be very interesting.

      His mother has admitted she sent him money. Don’t know if his father did also, I thought I read they were divorced but I’m not positive. Buying a BMW must have cost a bit, plus gas to drive from New Jersey to California to Arizona. He had spent thousands of dollars for killer robot machines that he entered into contests with his mother. He then sold these at a discount to fund his trip to the US 18 months ago but didn’t read about him ever having a job in the U.S.

    So, if he is autistic, and is somewhere on the spectrum such that he is not responsible for his actions, who is responsible for the rhetoric that caused him to decide to attempt to assassinate someone?

    (Rhetorical question; if he’s competent enough to travel internationally, then he’s competent enough to take responsibility for his actions.)

      Yes. The parents determined he could travel, live on his own in the US, manage money or scrounge successfully and NOT have him declared “incompetent” or whatever it is called in the UK. They are now trying to weasel out of it. My guess is that there are some “anger” issues (he had them at school too and got kicked out) and they are afraid of him. He is obviously dangerous, violent and unstable no matter how they claim otherwise. He acts out when he thinks he has the upper hand and meek/pitiful when he doesn’t. They are just trying to salvage their own reputations as lousy, irresponsible people.

    Clinton Contradicts Comey
    Takes on FBI director’s view of her email problems.

    Share to Facebook1Share to TwitterShare to Google+More AddThis Share options2Share to Print

    Hillary Clinton says that FBI Director James Comey has no proof that her personal, home-brew email service put government secrets at risk by being vulnerable to hackers. In announcing that the FBI would not recommend charges against Clinton, Comey said, “it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail account.”

    As Politico reports, the presumptive nominee for the Democrats is publicly challenging the FBI head.

    Asked about the possibility that her personal server might have compromised government secrets, Clinton compared her server’s security favorably with that of government systems.
    
    “If you go by the evidence, there is no evidence that the system was breached or hacked successfully,” Clinton told “NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt in an interview on MSNBC. “And I think that what's important here is follow the evidence. And there is no evidence. And that can't be said about a lot of other systems, including government systems.”
    

    Despite Comey detailing email chains of top secret material being passed through Clinton’s personal server, Hillary still says she did nothing wrong. In a separate interview she claimed that the material she shared was not even classified at the time it was sent.
