George Santos "would rather surrender to pretrial detainment" than name his bail $ source

Rep. George Santos' (R-NY) lawyers filed court documents Monday in which they begged a judge to keep the guarantor who paid the congressman's bail bond secret, according to CBS News reporter Scott MacFarlane.

“There is little doubt that the suretors will suffer some unnecessary form of retaliation if their identities and employment are revealed," the defense lawyer also said.

“My client would rather surrender to pretrial detainment than subject these suretors to what will inevitably come," the lawyer explained.

Deripaska paid for DeVolder's (Santos) campaign via relative, Deripaska was the
one who was paying FBI Agent McGonigal to rat fuck the HRC campaign in 2016,
and he was the one along Konstantin Kilimnik helped to ship the Trump's campaign
data from Manafort back to Russia so they could micro target certain areas and use
the electoral college to flip the election to Trump.

Stop teasing George, you'll never voluntarily go to prison for anybody else, you're way to much of a malignant narcissist for that.

16. The Streisand Effect
Tue Jun 6, 2023, 01:38 PM
Jun 2023

From Wikipedia:

The Streisand effect is an unintended consequence of attempts to hide, remove, or censor information, where it instead leads to increased awareness of that information. It is named after American singer and actress Barbra Streisand, whose attempt to suppress the California Coastal Records Project's photograph of her cliff-top residence in Malibu, California, taken to document California coastal erosion, inadvertently drew greater attention to the photograph in 2003.

The Streisand effect is an example of psychological reactance, wherein once people are aware that some information is being kept from them, they are significantly more motivated to get and spread it.

What's the court's basis for keeping them secret?

Seems like public information to me.

Having your cake would be for Santos to thumb his nose at the court, be held in contempt, and jailed until he reveals his benefactor.

Eating the cake will be the day that Santos can't take another day of incarceration and reveals all in the end anyway.

Opprobrium is not retaliation.
