1. Federal cases have limited jurisdiction and standing is the principal way the concept is expressed to litigants. So, who would have standing to seek to declare 2000 DOJ "President is a King" memo unconstitutional? Personally, I think we all do. But I learned early in court
2. that personal views in federal court seldom prevail. So, standing generally requires that you have suffered, or are imminently threatened with, a real injury the law can remedy. I think @TheDemocrats as Plaintiff in the law suit pending against #TrumpCampaign #GRU & others
3. in #SDNY have standing but that case is dragging along. I get what SDNY is like. I had a case there against Jones Day AND Kirkland & Ellis and the case went through six Art III judges until we landed on a taker. So I get it. But this may be the end of the Republic and even
4. the SDNY needs to pick up the pace. @CohenMilstein is my party's counsel in that case. I've been an active Democrat since I was five years old. At 7 canvassed door to door for JFK after my older brother and I made our own flyers. We were both a tad dyslexic in our youth
5. because they came out as "Vote for Kenneby"but we went door-to-door in Florissant MO right next to Ferguson. Two sons of Western Mass Catholic lefties loose in a sundown town. 😬 There's my campaign button. Still have it.
6. Get off your butts and file for a restraining order against @realDonaldTrump and @TheJusticeDept seeking to declare the 2000 memo unconstitutional. Use Trump's statement he intends to violate 52 USC 30121(a)(2) as an imminent threat of criminal conduct that only an injunction
7. can remedy. Force it to a hearing in 30 days (appeal-able of right) that will put Trump campaign people on the stand. I'm not for impeachment yet based on my life as a political scientist. But I'm also not for surrender. Let's go people. Let's get in the game.
8. I've been preparing to fight @senatemajldr McConnell's constitutional war for 60 years. If the party isn't paying @CohenMilstein why not? If they are, who is the client decision maker? And on standing, I get about 5 emails and about two mail pieces from
9. @TheDemocrats every day and I want to see somebody take responsibility for this case. File for the damn injunction. I don't think you need to amend but you know your judge. Just do it.
@SpeakerPelosi @TomPerez @SenSchumer @JoeBiden @HillaryClinton
