Today’s news carries reports about president Trump switching to a team of government lawyers to defend him in an active rape case. I feel bad for the rape victim. I found out firsthand how difficult it is when corrupt politicians use government lawyers against you in a case a few years ago “State of New Jersey vs. Tony Novak et. al”. It is simply overpoweringly. Even if the government attorneys are ethical, they are working for criminals and presenting faulty evidence derived by criminals for political gain.
In my experience, the Attorney General whose name appeared on the docket was probably not even familiar with the facts of the case. He assigns staff lawyers who have no choice but to represent the government whether government is at fault or not. An individual citizen on the other side of the legal case cannot compete in the courtroom packed with highly paid government lawyers. This appears likely to be the case in this Trump rape case where the evidence against him is developing in court but the rapist is now being defended by government lawyers.
In my case, the criminals in government were protected from even being identified and questioned and were not even investigated as far as I know. The government lawyers eventually had to give up their case against me and my family when they realized they could not win. But in both legal cases the taxpayers will pay a huge price to protect corrupt government officials. This is plainly wrong but I realize there is nothing that we as citizens can do to fight this corrupt government practice. Government corruption using the court system as a method to ‘strong arm’ individuals is always a risk to those who challenge powerful politicians.
