After Jurors Hear Trevor Milton Doesn't Give a Sh*t About The Environment, Nikola Questions

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - CIA Trial book - NY Mag
Pearl St Video

LITERARY COURTHOUSE, Sept 13 – When the Trevor Milton trial kicked off for real, AUSA Nick Roos called Milton a fraudster. His lawyer Marc Mukasey called the government's case grotesque.

  But the first witness settled the matter, at least for now. Paul Lackey who had worked on the Nikola 1 described Milton as involved in the science or the work, focused on leading other men in suits around and lying about the state of preparation of the vehicles.  

  Mukasey and then Ken Caruso objected, without impact. Overruled, Judge Ramos said.   As it grew near the end of trial day break, there had still been no cross examination.

  The jurors would go home with this image in their heads: Trevor Milton saying, according to Paul Lackey, "I don't give a sh*t about the environment, I just want to make money." 

   It was consistent with other, later developments. Milton lying about having solar panels on the Nikola building's roof, when there were none.

[Question posed to Milton on Pearl Street here]

  It was like the United Nations, though Kurt Wheelock, who before he was throw out of the UN had exposed their fake recycling program when in fact all the waste mixed together.

  The limousine idling for hours outside Secretary General Antonio Guterres' mansion on Sutton Place, and his undisclosed weekend jetting to Lisbon.

  Greenwashing, bluewashing, but all Team Trevor could allege was Milton- or Nikola-bashing. The next day they would get to cross examine Lackey. Kurt would try to come in early for that. More on Patreon here.
