Team Trevor Waits To Cross As Russell Calls Milton An Exaggerating Rube With Pa on Board

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 19 – It was the Monday after jury selection in the Trevor Milton trial when his replacement, and nemesis, Mark Russell took the stand.

It didn't take long for the prosecutor to help Russell land a blow. He said Trevor was wont to exaggerate, and only cared about the moment to moment stock price. That he bragged about his power over retail investors using social media.

   Russell cast himself as the insider with previous public company experience. Milton was the rube who put his father on the board of directors. As Russell testified, just selling stock, he was praised in Hamburg by his successor Mike Lohscheller.

At Nikola they were putting Trevor behind them, they were drawing a line underneath him. And the prosecutors were helping them do it, instead of charging them. 

  Before Russell took the stand, with only an hour left in the trial day, Dale Prows continued on the cross, Brad Bondi hammering away. Hadn't Prows been emasculated, he asked, when the Norwegian firm Nel dissed him? Well sure. 

 Online, previous witness Paul Lackey said this had been their strategy with him, too. He'd been the one to quote Milton as saying he didn't give a sh*t about the environment.

 It echoed the hypocrisy of the UN General Assembly week, which was just getting started in Midtown. Kurt Wheelock, even banned, stopped by. But his focus was down here at SDNY, on this trial, and soon on Tom Barrack over in EDNY. 

Cross examination under oath as the engine of truth. The UN's Antonio Guterres would never submit to it. But how would it go for Mark Russell, when Marc Mukasey got his turn? More on Patreon here.
