Michele White

A judge on Friday set a new trial date for former Prince William County Registrar Michele White in connection to accusations by Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares’ office that she altered local results of the 2020 presidential election.

A trial for White, 51, of Occoquan – who was indicted by a grand jury last year on charges of corruption, negligence and making false statements – will be held early next year between Jan. 16-19 and Jan. 22-26. A pre-trial conference was set for Jan. 3.

A four-day jury trial for April was originally scheduled, but White’s Fairfax-based attorney, Zach Stafford of Lawrence, Smith & Gardner, sought a six-month delay to further prepare her defense. He also requested that the trial last longer than just a few days.

Stafford on Friday declined to comment on the case or the trial date set by Judge Carroll A. Weimer Jr. In remarks to the judge, Stafford indicated he wished for the trial to be pushed to December.

Miyares’ office has for months declined to release specifics about the allegations against White, but prosecutors partially detailed them during a March 10 pre-trial hearing.

According to the Prince William Times, prosecutors alleged that White altered election results within a state system, resulting in inaccurate reporting of Prince William County’s 2020 presidential election results. White has said the charges against her are politically motivated, which Miyares’ office denies.

White, who served as registrar from February 2015 until her resignation in April 2021, is free on a personal recognizance bond, meaning she was released from custody with a promise to appear at all court proceedings. She faces between three and 21 years cumulatively on the charges plus up to a $7,500 fine.

Democrats prosper off stupidity. Even a gathering of idiots forms a quorum.

"I love the poorly educated"- Donald Trump

That's your people. The salt of the earth...y'know...morons.

Just another due diligence Democrat cheating to help steal the 2020 election for Biden. Since Democrats can't win fairly, they need open borders and dead folks to vote Democrat.

I love how Fox News is being sued for a billion dollars and all of the internal texts are being shown to the public. It's great seeing that they deliberately lied about the stuff that you are saying AND how each instance of "cheating" that was investigated turned out to be Republicans who were trying to manipulate the vote.

Here are some excerpts:

Tucker Carlson

On Fox News’ Arizona call:

“We devote our lives to building an audience and they let Chris Wallace and Leland fucking Vittert wreck it,” Carlson texted in a group conversation with Ingraham and Sean Hannity roughly two weeks after the election. Vittert was a Fox News reporter who was frequently criticized by Trump, and he left the network in April 2021 for NewsNation.

On hating Trump:

“I hate him passionately … What he’s good at is destroying things. He’s the undisputed world champion of that. He could easily destroy us if we play it wrong,” Carlson texted a colleague on January 4, days prior to the riot at the U.S. Capitol. He added, “We’re all pretending we’ve got a lot to show for it, because admitting what a disaster it’s been is too tough to digest. But come on. There really isn’t an upside to Trump.”

On the antics of Trump lawyers Sidney Powell and Lin Wood:

“Sidney Powell is lying by the way. I caught her. It’s insane,” Carlson texted Ingraham on November 18.

In a message from November 4, Carlson texted a colleague that there was “no doubt there was fraud” in the election. “But at this point, Trump and Lin and Powell have so discredited their own case, and the rest of us to some extent, that it’s infuriating. Absolutely enrages me.”

In a text on November 9, Tucker referenced Powell’s Dominion claims, commenting, “The software shit is absurd.” (Carlson then said on television that night, “We don’t know anything about the software that many say was rigged. We don’t know. We ought to find out.”)

On certain colleagues undermining the network:

“We devote our lives to building an audience and they let Chris Wallace and Leland fucking Vittert wreck it,” Carlson texted to Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham. Both Wallace and Vittert, who sometimes appeared on Fox and Friends and other shows, have since left Fox News.

On Trump skipping Biden’s inauguration:

“Hard to believe. So destructive,” he texted a staffer on November 10. “It’s disgusting. I’m trying to look away.”

On the prospect of ditching Trump coverage on Fox:

Two days before the Capitol riot, Carlson wrote to a colleague that “we are very, very close to being able to ignore Trump most nights. I truly can’t wait.” The day after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, he texted his producer that “Trump has two weeks left. Once he’s out, he becomes incalculably less powerful, even in the minds of his supporters. He’s a demonic force, a destroyer. But he’s not going to destroy us. I’ve been thinking about this every day for four years.”

Tell us you are truly ignorant without telling us you're ignorant. Most of us who voted R in 2020 know full well Trump did not win and he did not lose to cheating. Stop with this stupidity.

Ben Franklin

Well now, we'll see you all in December. So much for a speedy trial in the new democrat party controlled America.

The conservatives who care most about gender issues typically have videos of the skeletons in their closets (or out of the closet) along with ❤️❤️❤️🔥🔥🔥 on the male model social feeds. Get your own house.in.order before throwing those rocks.

Trump is scheduled to be arrested on Tuesday. He is calling for violence against the police. Do you support the call for violence against the police?

Harry Morant

He most certainly did not call for violence against the police. More Lies from the minions of the Party of Hate. Your Antifa and BLM comrades always call for violence against the police, and you have no problem with that. Hypocrite.
