    Oh good! Keith Ellison has jumped in to get himself some more fame and attention, and muddy the waters even further.

    On one hand, he is all about some justice. Law and order, baby!!

    It with a large degree of humility and a great seriousness, I accept for my office the responsibility for leadership on this critical case involving the killing of George Floyd.

    We are going to bring to bear all the resources necessary to achieve justice in this case.

    Minnesota's governor appointed state Attorney General Keith Ellison on Sunday to lead the prosecution of any cases arising from the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.


    Gov. Tim Walz announced Ellison's appointment as lead prosecutor shortly after the Hennepin County prosecutor said he had asked Ellison to "assist" in the investigation, two days after 10 members representing Minneapolis in the state House asked Walz in a letter to transfer the case to Ellison.

    "Unfortunately, our constituents, especially constituents of color, have lost faith in the ability of Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to fairly and impartially investigate and prosecute these cases," the letter said.

    On the OTHER hand, it would appear that the Minnesota attorney General is a supporter of Antifa

    In a post on Twitter, Ellison said that he found the book "Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook" at a Minneapolis book shop and said it would "strike fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump."

    AG Ellison’s son, Jeremiah, said on Twitter:

    I hereby declare, officially, my support for ANTIFA

    Unless someone can prove to me ANTIFA is behind the burning of black and immigrant owned businesses in my ward, I’ll keep focusing on stopping the white power terrorist THE ARE ACTUALLY ATTACKING US! https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1267129644228247552 …

    This is the biggest crock of **** I’ve ever heard of!

    So the Gov., at the request of (several members of the city council” (a.k.a. Jeremiah Ellison), due to a lack of confidence in the ability of Freeman, who has 23 YEARS experience as the county attorney, has replaced him as lead prosecutor with Attorney General Keith Ellison, whom to my knowledge has never prosecuted a single criminal case.

    Don’t be surprised when this doesn’t work out as planned.

    Amazing! The apple didn't fall far from that Antifa-loving tree. It's amazing that his son, a city council member, is so easily bamboozled by the narrative pushed by the left that this is a white supremacist movement. Really??? I'd think that any reasonably intelligent person would find it hard to believe that the white supremacists are coming out in droves to protest the killing of a black man. I guess that speaks volumes to the intelligence of the AG's spawn, or maybe just a testament to his commitment to spread this BS narrative to deflect from the real goal - to attempt to disrupt and destabilize society while using a cadre of legitimate protestors (not taking into account their gripe of systemic police brutality against minorities not being supported by statistics) to hide behind.

    And to the point of this thread, I have no expectations that the AG will be fair in any way during this trial, and will probably deviate from normal and permitted trial protocols because he is a novice elected by people who know little other than identity politics.

    Ellison might as well have said,

    We are going to have a fair trial followed by a first class hanging.

    “They” see a shift in political power in “their direction”, and intend to seize on it. And by “they”, I mean radical leftists, not blacks. Keith Ellison, and his son, are radical progressive leftists.

    “Fist in the air” types. “Bernie isn’t left enough” types.

    I don’t give a hot **** what color they are. They are socialist anarchists that have figured out how to navigate the system of authority in the United States, and are trying to change it to something that none of us would recognize.

    Oh, I know you get the seriousness of this, Don.

    He is the prosecuting authority. I doubt he himself will appear in court, but he will absolutely be directing the prosecution’s team and arguments.
