This country needs an intellectual revival, and I mean sooner rather than later. During the trial of New Jersey senator Bob Menendez, one juror asked a question that would’ve flunked any sixth-grade civics student.
If a juror can sit through a trial dealing with an elected official, and one of their questions to the judge is “What Is A Senator?”, then the future of our country is quickly becoming undone.
Boy, did the defense hit the jackpot when they got this person on the panel. Since he doesn’t know what a senator is, there could be no bribe and therefore Menendez is not guilty. But the truth is, with the U.S. Senate absolutely failing to pass the Trump agenda after nearly a year, it makes sense that nobody knows what a senator is anymore. They don’t do anything!
That juror question, "What is a senator?" Really? How is that person even allowed to be seated in this case?

I think senators are lawmakers, but most of them do better as lawbreakers. Most senators meet in D.C. and manage to do nothing year after year and get fabulously wealthy doing it. This is why Nancy Pelosi said, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” They know some people will believe it. Back in the day, she would have never gotten away with it.
I smell a mistrial coming.

Via Bloomberg: “On their first full day of jury deliberations at the bribery trial of Senator Robert Menendez, a juror asked the judge a basic question: What is a senator? U.S. District Judge William Walls declined to answer the question, and he refused that juror’s request for a transcript of Monday’s closing argument by Menendez’s attorney, Abbe Lowell.”

When a "jury of your peers" asks "What is a Senator", it's time to ask for a mistrial.

The fix is in he will walk. Reported that question from jury-what is a Senator. Common Core grads….

I’ve long given up on the notion of universal suffrage. Some people are so stupid or ignorant that should not be permitted anywhere near a voting booth. Sadly, some of these people are in Congress. Hank “Guam may tip over” Johnson comes immediately to mind.
Amazing stuff. The dumbing down has been pushed for decades by liberals and Hollywood. They are still Americans though. You can bet on the attorneys to select people that can be swayed easily. The justice system is corrupt.
