Bundy mouthpiece Pete Santilli may have found himself embroiled in the Roger Stone mess. #oregonstandoff
A few weeks ago, Santilli filed a state bar ethics complaint against Cliven Bundy's civil attorney Larry Klayman. It's a curious filing bec Santilli stated that Klayman was hired to go over the US Atty's head and get Jeff Sessions involved in dropping charges against Bundy et al.
That's not really how things work. You appeal to a higher court, not to the prosecutor's boss to intervene long after charges have been filed. Anyhoo, here's the complaint.…
There's a curious charge in this complaint. Santilli says that Klayman sent Santilli attorney client privileged info about his trial strategy to Jeff Sessions who then passed it on to the prosecution team.
A couple of weeks later, Klayman responded by suing Pete Santilli for $15,000,000 in the DC superior court for "defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and assault."…
And here's where the Roger Stone connection comes in. Klayman represents Jerome Corsi, the former Infowars host. Corsi is Person 1 in Stone's criminal indictment.
According to Klayman, Stone and Santilli have partnered up in attacking Klayman as Corsi's legal counsel.
Furthermore, Klayman states that he was never Santilli's attorney (which Santilli admits in his ethics complaint) and that he never turned privileged info over to Jeff Sessions.
Bottom line, the whole affair is a mess. Santilli does claim on his recent radio show that he's been corresponding directly with Stone so maybe there's something real here, but in the meantime, pull up the civil complaint above and enjoy.
I almost forgot to mention. Klayman reported Santilli to the feds, saying that Santilli had violated the terms of his supervised release.
Since I've started a thread on Santilli, I thought I'd post his biggest achievement. <== sarcasm…
