MayB over time, but I think they will contend for long time that the bros were framed and the evidence manufactured, part of drill, what have you. I think they'll be in denial for a v. long time. I wonder tho if Z puts on a front for the supporters. She was, acc'ding to most accounts, becoming extreme right along with T. And after J sent her that goodbye email, I think deep down she knows the truth.

She will stick to this America set them up scenario I am sure. Her not admitting it doesn’t mean she doesn’t know more about what is going on with his case - and where it’s heading as his legal team flew to Dagestan to meet with her and Anznor, and no doubt they had some pretty real face to face talks about things. So she can pretend till the cows come home, I simply don’t buy into that act. And another element to this is that she might agree with their actions, she certainly had no problem with T going to fight in Palestine.

Yup, I don’t buy into her act either, on multiple counts: (1)she knows they did it but if she admits it she risks alienating supporters (and their CASH) from her entire family. (2) As you said, she supported T going to Palestine to wage jihad, so there’s at least some chance she supports or rationalizes the BMB on some level. (3) Now that it is known that this woman encouraged her daughter to commit welfare fraud using the identity of an extended family member and then (unsurprisingly) lied to LE about it, we have seen clearly that Z is a liar and a manipulator and a horrible parent who encouraged her children to unethical and illegal conduct which put them all in harm’s way. There is no reason to believe her. She has no credibility.

Words aren’t adequate to describe the depth of my disgust upon reading Ruslan’s revelation.

Yes, I always wondered what it was that had caused him to turn his back on them. I had assumed it was something that crazy T had done.

Blech, she is a scumbag

"@AudioBruce: At the heart of the Phillipos trial- did he lie and if so did his lying materially effect the FBI investigation. Would it matter anyhow"

Exactly Bruce! The entire issue summed up in a tweet!

Even if he knowingly lied, did it matter?

I’m still uncertain why there’s so much discussion of the backpack or the search of the landfill. is accused of lying to FBI

@AudioBruce

Feds want to make sure that the jury connects Robel to the attempt to do away with evidence, even though that is not what he is charged with.

Or maybe trying to divert jury attention away from the fact that they did not video or audio record their interrogations, so no way for jury to evaluate for themselves what Robel’s state of mind was. Keep reminding them about the backpack being thrown away until they associate Robel with that act.

I hope the Judge reminds the jury what Robel is actually charged with, what their duty is, emphatically. Stop trying to make Robel pay for what others did.

I have not, for the life of me, been able to find out what “critical information” the FBI was deprived of by Robel supposedly lying to them about whether or not he was in Tsarnaev’s dorm room. They want him convicted of lying even if it mattered not one bit in regards to getting evidence. They already knew everything from Aza and Dias. 

The FBI and Justice are just like “Fuck this kid”. They are trying to lock him up because they can, they have that kind of power behind them. “See what we can do to you” they seem to be saying.

One of the agents talked to Robel about being on “Team America”. Well, I am on Team America, and I think the prosecution of Robel is bullshit. Team America should not be using its power in this way it is excessive.

So, in other words, he lied at first, under oath, and then told the truth? Will we be seeing his trial next?
