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...
Yes, I made a list for my own research. No, I’m not posting it publicly. Enough of this Lord of the Flies crap.
State bars don't disbar people for this, don't even sanction them typically unless there is theft or gross misconduct or a crime takes place. But I've seen lawyers sanctioned $500 for not wearing business attire, showing up late, being unprepared, etc. -- this is worse, but the
Associate wasn't working on case & the firm claims she didn't know about the representation. At a large firm such as Kirkland, that part about not knowing her firm was involved is very plausible. But the unprofessional conduct itself against any lawyer, should not be tolerated.

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/

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.

This is a thorough and eye-opening piece. But @GavnSample pulls his punches on the real villians/grifters of the bunch -- the campaign consultants and mail vendors who identify, groom, harvest, and then manage first-time, attractive, minority candidates. The consultants are the/
2/ ones getting rich here, not the candidates necessarily. Don't get me wrong -- I know some failed celebrity candidates who take to flying first class and staying in hotels that I, a modest country lawyer who makes payroll twice a months, would never frequent -- all with OPM/
3/ or Other People's Money. Flying alongside are the grifter consultants. Those candidates may run again, or not -- but 💯, the consultants will strike again, find a good-looking minority candidate to run against a loathed fixture of the left -- and ride that sucker to the bank!
