Pres. Trump’s lawyers filed dozens of what can only described as “frivolous” lawsuits. Yet, so far, no lawyer has been sanctioned. Most of us would expect some sort of sanction if we had filed a lawsuit completely lacking in evidence. But, in one of the lawsuits, Judge Boasberg did indicate he would consider sanctions. That

The name Joe McCarthy has been coming up, lately. Who was Joe McCarthy?

Senator McCarthy was a bully. In his zeal to uproot all vestiges of Communism or Communist sympathizers, he bullied, scared and threatened his way across Washington, D.C. Everyone was afraid of Joe McCarthy, because they feared being branded as “soft” on Communism.

These lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign are remarkably weak and lacking in evidence. I previously wrote about one such lawsuit in Pennsylvania here. Rudy Giuliani himself appeared in the Pennsylvania lawsuit last week. He literally parachuted into the suit, submitting his motion pro hac vice the day of his appearance. Judge Brann, an

Another whistle blower has been forced out of his job in the Trump Administration. Dr. Rick Bright, a scientist at the National Institute of Health and a vaccine expert, has resigned. He submitted a whistle blower complaint several months ago. See my prior post here. His complaint was very detailed, extending over some 300

Secretary Modly’s visit to the Theodore Roosevelt (the “TR”) reflected a complete lack of leadership. According to the transcript, the Secretary essentially fussed at the crew for supporting Capt. Crozier. He told them to take care of one another and not to complain. See transcript here. Consider how public media came to possess a

Attorney David Lat, founder of the Above the Law blog, has contracted coronavirus. He is in critical condition and has been placed on a ventilator. He lives in New York and has been prescribed the malarial drug, chloroquine and azithromycin. Mr. Lat is a very healthy person normally, who has participated in two marathons. He

Pres. Trump and others are trying to “out” the Ukraine whistle blower. If they do name the whistle blower, they will violate the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act. The ICWPA does not provide a private right of action. The only mechanism available to a whistle blower is to submit an internal complaint. The Ukraine whistleblower

The President’s counsel, Pat Cipollone, sent a letter to the House of Representatives objecting to the impeachment inquiry. It is a five page letter which recounts the many perceived problems with the House investigation. It is signed by Pat Cipollone as counsel to Pres. Trump. But, it appears to have also been edited heavily by

Once again, I nominate Pres. Trump for the award as the worst client in America. His administration has pursued a weak, almost frivolous appeal regarding the citizenship question on the 2020 census. Finally, just last week, the U.S. Supreme Court said the reason advanced by the Administration for the citizenship question was “contrived.” That is
