Then the judge threw the case out, hence it never happened.

Maybe next time..

Wow. What a surprise. The judge who threw out the case was Donald M. Middlebrooks, a judge appointed by Bill Clinton in 1997.



U.S. District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks, appointed by Clinton in 1997 has just put a halt on the depositions being requested of Former President Bill Clinton and Hillary. He offers no reason for his ruling.



A federal judge has blocked a conservative activist’s plans to force presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton to testify in depositions stemming from a lawsuit claiming the Clinton Foundation operated as a racketeering enterprise shaking down donors in exchange for official favors.

U.S. District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks issued an order barring legal gadfly Larry Klayman from proceeding with his plans to conduct videotaped depositions of the Clintons in Washington next week. Middlebrooks’s order, signed Monday and made public Tuesday (posted here), does not offer a reason for the ruling.

This isn't about Clinton's Foundation, this is about Trump. I'm all for the Clintons being held accountable for their misdeeds but this issue is all about Trump.

Either way, it was thrown but it would be great if it was reopened.

How come when you addressed the racketeering charge it is fine but when I replied to your reply the issue is suddenly all about Trump? Hmmm.

Obvious ignorance is obvious since this lawsuit was filed long before Trump announced his run last June. I believe 300 people -/+ are suing Trump.

Because this thread isn't about the Clinton Foundation, what's so hard to understand. You're trying to deflect off of Trump onto Clintons foundation when they have nothing to do with each other. Wanna talk about the foundation make a new thread.

Sorry you don't like the source, so here's the Wiki source about Judge Middlebrooks, the guy who threw out the rackateering case, who was appointed by Bill Clinton.



Donald M. Middlebrooks (born 1946) is currently a judge on the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. He was in private practice from 1973 to 1974 and served as General Counsel to Florida Governor Reubin Askew from 1974 to 1977. In 1997 he was appointed by President Bill Clinton to serve as a United States District Judge and was confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

The more I read about TrumpU the worse it is.

They preyed on the elderly high pressuring them to max out their credit cards and cash out their 401ks to pay for lifetime memberships to nothing.

That's worse than a used car salesman.

The only one who said those negative things was a former employee. You don't know on what terms they left, or if they held a grudge.

I looked over the documents as well. Honestly, it seems like this is a sales playbook that any sales department would use.

That's why when you go to buy a car, you wear old clothes. Any salesperson is going to size you up and try to sell what they think you can afford. All sales departments supply language and tactics for making the "sale". That is common in any business.

And note this:

Some of the material offers a potential counterweight to claims that Trump University's aim was just to sell someone on the highest-priced course. For example, the 2007 sales playbook tells staffers, "you are here to meet the needs of your client, not to push product." And the 2010 version advises that one should "sell for a relationship, not a commission."

Oh wow so you haven't been reading the complaints have you?

People got bilked for 35 to 60k for supposed lifetime VIP memberships.


Be honest with everyone including yourself. If Trumps name wasn't on this you wouldn't be defending it. You true believers are cult like to where you defend everything he is involved in.

The implications to that would be those who trusted the Trump brand and promises were fools.

No argument from me on that.

Perhaps they could properly be termed "controlled opposing lawyers?"
