In CIA Leak Case Schulte With June Trial Says Info Not Provided So Asks to Visit CIA, Denied

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 13 – In the conclusion of the month long trial of accused CIA leaker Joshua Schulte, on the morning of March 9, 2020 the jury returned guilty verdicts on Counts 8 and 10, with mistrial granted on all other counts. U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Crotty set March 26 for the next date.  Then it was moved to April 22 (then May 18). March 9 thread here. Song here.

  On November 9, 2021, a status conference was held before Judge Jesse M. Furman to whom the case has been reassigned. Inner City Press live tweeted it here - the upshot is a May 23, 2022 trial date has been set. Vlog here.

On January 18, 2022 - docketed on January 20 -- Schulte wrote to Judge Furman that he wants to relieve his current stand-by counsel (one of whom represented him on the multiple mistrial counts) and replace them, "based on my intent to call my attorneys as fact witnesses at trial and ongoing issues."

  Schulte says only his attorneys had "Malware of the Mind" and calls them rude and more. He says he is not visited - but the MDC has been in lock-down for some time. Will Judge Furman grant the motion, joined in by stand-by counsel? At the same time in the EDNY in Brooklyn, a motion by Sarah Kunstler was denied by Judge Edward R. Korman, or withdrawn, as Inner City Press reported. Here, it was also denied.

 On April 13, 2022, Judge Furman held a conference with Schulte present. Inner City Press live tweeted it here:

Judge Furman denies Schulte's request to delay re-trial. Says it was Schulte's decision to represent himself.

Judge Furman declines to order MDC to let him leave law library in less than 30 minutes - but asks MDC lawyer why not is prepared to explain today. Letter in a week.

AUSA: We'll address in our motions in limine the charts Mr Schulte says he's preparing on his laptop. Plus, in late Feb we got audio of interviews conducted overseas, from an investigation by another Office...

 AUSA Denton: We had to review the trove to pull out classified info. It took time.

 Schulte: Due to the law library issue I am not able to file on this. Judge: You haven't been back to the law library since April 6? You get 10 hours a week. Judge Furman: What about the CIPA hearing?

 AUSA: On courtroom sealing, Judge Crotty held a public hearing, your Honor may want to hold another. [Inner City Press advocated before Judge Crotty against sealing, and stands ready to do so again.]

 Schulte seeks to subpoena some CIA witnesses. Judge Furman: If you have any applications, file them.

 Schulte: Info they won't bring to the SCIF, they should take me to the CIA to see. Judge Furman: You are not going to the CIA.

 Judge Furman proposes a next conference for a Wednesday -- Schulte: That's the day of my social calls. Judge Furman: It'll be that day. Adjourned.

 Back on December 28, Schulte wrote two letters to Judge Furman. In the first, he disagreed with the position that his stand-by counsel do not have to help him with his appeals to the Second Circuit.

 In the second letter, he complained among other things that he is not being allowed to buy stamps in the MDC, to send his own appeals to the 2d Circuit. He asked Judge Furman to oper to the MDC to allow SAMs inmates to purchase stamps like general population inmates, or allow his family to mail him stamps.

On January 19, the US Attorney's Office replied that, among other things, "the defendant should again be able to purchase stamps." They add that Schulte between November 1, 2021 and January 11, 2022 receive more than 50 pieces of legal mail. They said they'll be calling Schulte on January 20. Watch this site.

 On December 20 in large courtroom 26B, Judge Furman held another conference with Schulte and his stand-by counsel. Earlier on, Judge Furman said that Schulte is not free to treat his stand-by counsel like "potted plants." He urged the defense and prosecutors to talk and work things out without so frequently requesting judicial intervention.

  Schulte complained of delays in getting in and out of the MDC, citing the US v. Ghislaine Maxwell case. Judge Furman noted that the case was in closing arguments - actually, jury charge by then. Inner City Press went back to it but will remain on both cases. Watch this site.


Back on September 15, Judge Crotty held another proceeding with Schulte and his stand-by counsel. It was said  that the MCC will *not* be fully shut down. Inner City Press live tweeted it. But now, after Schulte's trial has been postpone "sin die," he has been moved to the MDC: "JOSHUA ADAM SCHULTE Register Number: 79471-054 Age:     33 Race:     White Sex:     Male Located at: Brooklyn MDC Release Date: UNKNOWN." [And see its Oct 15 MCC video here]

  On March 2 were the closing arguments, which Inner City Press tweeted, thread here
