Government’s Opposition To Jeff Skilling’s Motion To Dismiss

This 2005 document is the government’s reply to a defense motion to dismiss the case based on prosecutorial abuse. It is a slurry of crazysauce. The government says that “almost” all of the defense’s allegations are untrue. I learned in the FBI that people who are innocent make huge, categorical denials while guilty people hedge. For instance:

Q. “Did you kill her and chop her up?”

A. “I don’t think I killed her.”

An innocent person will say, “I didn’t fucking kill her. I didn’t touch her, I didn’t even know her. Now let me call an attorney.”

So when the government says that “almost” all of the defense’s allegations are untrue, anyone with critical thinking skills has to ask which ones are the government admitting to?

The document mentions the Nigerian Barge case, Broadband, and even Bernie Ebbers (see footnote 6). It’s interesting and infuriating; check it out.
