Thread: In case y'all are wondering who at the DOJ is in charge of election law matters at the @TheJusticeDept -- there are two places to look. First, the Civil Rights Division of DOJ, which is headed by Eric Dreiband, Don McGahn (former WH Counsel) law partner. DOJ says it sent/
2/ election personnel to 44 jurisdictions to monitor this election. Curiously, many of these are places with massive problems in this election including Detroit, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Maricopa County ... What did they observe exactly ... 🤔justice.gov/opa/pr/justice…
3/ Whatever it was, they aren't doing anything about it 🤷‍♀️and the @realDonaldTrump campaign is filing suits in several states to ensure that all & only legal ballots are counted. There is another deparatment of DOJ where election problems are addressed -- criminal division ...
4/ and guess who is in charge of the Election Crimes Branch of the DOJ Criminal Division? A career guy named Richard Pilger: and if the name seems vaguely familiar at all, it's because Pilger was deeply involved in the Lois Lerner IRS scandal... linkedin.com/in/richard-pil…
5/ ... Allegedly colluding with her on ways to target and prosecute conservative organizations like Tea Party and others. Here's an article from @ACLJ about his involvement with Lerner's illegal scheme to frame conservatives: aclj.org/free-speech-2/…
6/ Pilger, when subpoenaed to Capitol Hill by House Oversight, Darrell Issa in 2014, refused to answer over three dozen questions under oath on the advice of DOJ attorneys. thehill.com/policy/finance… And despite this history, Pilger is STILL in charge of the same department at DOJ/
7/ HE's supposed to be controlling the prosecution of election fraud in this election? The guy accused of conspiring with Lois Lerner to criminalize conservative speech? Don't hold your breath about Nevada GOP criminal referral that DOJ is "looking into": pjmedia.com/election/tyler…
8/ The government is full of survivors like this -- they burrow in, lurk, and like submarines they surface to survey, then dive & fire torpedos. And you never know what hit you. DOJ civil rights & election integrity have been MIA in this election ... it didn't have to be so.

1/ Ok I’ve read the lawsuit filed by Sidney Powell’s organization. It contains many allegations familiar to those following these legal challenges, with two big themes: 1) numerous irregularities in vote-counting based on ad hoc law/procedure changes... defendingtherepublic.org/wp-content/upl…
2/ including putting ballots in the wrong stacks en masse, pre-printed ballots that were “pristine” and unlined; blocking Republican observers from vote-tabulation tables; counting votes after the so-called “pipe burst” election night even though there were no Rep. observers.../
3/ And more... And the second big theme is that the Dominion voting machines are easily hackable and experts have written scripts to show how one can manually manipulate vote tallies, alter setting so as to put more ballots into a “question” pile and then just delete them...

Enough. Once this election is over I intend to compile a list of the political consultants and grifter candidates who rip off gullible donors at the expense of winnable races. This guy is on the list. His consultants will be too.
Any candidate who lost their race by double digits but blew donor $$$ on private jets, five star hotels, attending fundraisers of other candidates, is dead to me.
Ok ok if you don’t like lists, how about a series of profiles of parasitic “political consultants” with PO Boxes and one client ... who identify attractive looking candidates in or sorta near despised Democrats, and ride their host organisms to the tune of hundreds of thousand$$?

Thread: Many people have asked me about the grassroots effort to recall Gavin Newsom, backed by a growing number of Californians. It takes a lot to recall a politician, but Governor Newsom has given us so many reasons! Here's the link to the petition .../ recallgavin2020.com
2/ And here's how it works. You need to download the official petition and get wet signatures on it, with a different sheet for each California county you gather signatures in. The signatures are verified at the county level, so different pages is key/ recallgavin2020.com
3/ Who would replace Gavin, you say? We get to decide that down the road, but the first step is qualifying a recall for the ballot. I've recently learned about new efforts to support the original grassroots effort with a broader coalition of Californians, including party leaders/

A Kirkland & Ellis associate left a hateful/harassing voice message last week for the lead lawyer for the Trump campaign — campaign lawyer asked for sanctions but so far the court has done nothing on this. The Trump lawyer has had death threats, courtesy Lincoln Project doxing.
Over 9,000 attorneys made contributions to Lincoln Project, including over $1k contributions from partners at 40 large firms... the money is used in part to attack and crowd-source harassment of attorneys representing clients in court, a protected constitutional act. Despicable.
I’m told the court scolded the firm, did not sanction the attorney. Maybe the client asked firm to withdraw, or maybe firm suggested it. Firm tried to excuse the conduct by saying associate did it on her own time, was not on case, had gurgling baby in the background. Nice try...

I just did a webinar on this topic with @JonathanTurley for the @TheRepLawyer. Successful partners at America's top law firms -- many of which represent foreign dictators, polluters, inside traders, price-fixers, sexual harassers, government bribers, False Claims Act violators/
2/ have contributed substantial sums to an effort that is currently targeting and harassing law firms advancing Republican election integrity lawsuits in court. These are Antifa-style tactics. A lawyer who makes contact with a represented party concerning the representation,
3/ may violate state bar rules. A lawyer who uses threats of baseless bar complaints against lawyers to get them to drop a case or client, could face bar sanctions. A lawyer who leaves nasty voicemails or threatening social media posts or emails for other lawyers, could too.

Thread: I joined @FoxNews @TuckerCarlson tonight to discuss @realDonaldTrump’s legal representation. We discussed the abuse and death threats that #TeamTrump lawyers are getting everyday from partners at major law firms. Please watch and share!
2/ It is important for the course of #justice for there to be two sides. If you are unpopular, there is a mob waiting to intimidate you and take you down. This fight is about the legitimacy and integrity of #2020Elections and lawyers leading this charge should be ashamed.
I got curious so I checked FEC reports. Lawyers from 40 of the top 100 law firms in the U.S. contributed at least $1,000 to Lincoln Project, which used that money to dox & harass their competitors, interfere w/client relationships. Yes, I made a list.
