We're in Judge Howell's courtroom talking about whether James McGrew is getting necessary medical care for a "sensitive part" of his body. It involves a urologist.

William Shipley says they've been fighting to get the records for month. He's been McGrew's lawyer for < month.
Ryan Marshall is the one who has been trying to get the records.

That guy.

Howell notes that Shipley is not answering her question, what date McGrew asked.
Howell: Is Mr. Marshall a lawyer or an investigator?

Pierce: He's a lawyer.

Shipley: He's only recently been admitted in CA, weeks ago.
Shipley: I don't have the date in front of me (Marshall is on the public line, but not on Zoom).
Shipley: First request August 13.

Howell: That is not answering my question. I could ask and DOC would say no.
DOC General Counsel Glover: October 4, I have an email from Mr. Marshall, there's no release form, no request for medical records.
DOC General Counsel Glover: November 17 is when I received a BLANK release form.
Howell: Mr. Shipley, I'm sorry, you're not prepared for this hearing about when you got, with the correct HIPAA release signed by Mr. McGrew.
Howell: So Mr. Pierce just sitting like a wart on a log. Do you have anything to say?

Pierce: Yes, I did receive them that day.

Howell: If you had just gotten HIPAA release that was required you could have had records much earlier.

Reup, bc that @davidfrum piece is far too tame.

The Disinformation that Got Told: Michael Cohen Was, in Fact, Hiding Secret Communications with the Kremlin

@davidfrum Michael Cohen, Donald Trump, and Trump Org all **committed crimes** to hide secret communications with the Kremlin. As it happens, that's the topic of the dossier report most likely to be disinformation: secret communications Cohen had with the Kremlin.
@davidfrum The source of those most easily debunked reports? Actually had ties to the guy who knew that Trump and Cohen were lying publicly to hide their secret communications with the Kremlin.

Chuck Grassley, who until recently employed a close associate and sometime co-conspirator of Project Veritas (Barbara Ledeen), is upset that James O'Keefe was not treated with the same deference as the Secretary of State.

I think Grassley should be asked if he knows whether Ledeen had a role in the alleged theft of Ashley Biden's diary.
In 2016, after all, Ledeen was using her shelter as a Congressional staffer to attempt to reach out to hostile foreign nation-states to try to find emails stolen from Hillary Clinton. To think she'd be involved in the alleged theft of Ashley Biden's property is consistent w/that.

Working on two long posts on the Project Veritas stuff but one thing that deserves more emphasis is that PV is not protecting the names of their sources.

Note that that doesn't end the question -- nor does the fact that a Judge recently deemed them political spies. But they're also misrepresenting scope of Privacy Protection Act.
This is sort of an interesting fact: SDNY has done 300 filter reviews in the last three years. (h/t @AnneMuntean for the correx) Image

Konstantin Kilimnik's stenographer says WaPo needs to retract a story reporting Mike Flynn discussed sanctions w/Kislyak (he doesn't understand that not all transcripts have been released); to support it, he provides evidence they did discuss that.

Then he claims that a NYT story reporting multiple contacts w/Russian intelligence officers built momentum for Mueller appointment (in February, 3 months before there was reason), but shows key investigators debunked it. Image
Note, the only reason that story was untrue at the time is bc FBI had limited their investigation. By the time the investigation was done, FBI found evidence of multiple ties between RU intelligence officers and Trump people.

As interesting as all the details (besides cooperators, which make the rest easy) in the Beek affidavit about IDing him, it's notable they're also referring to Minuta, James, and Grods as Stack Two.

Rasha Abual-Ragheb says she was a translator after 9/11, which she described helping to fight terrorists.
Abual-Ragheb also said that she was unable to vote. AUSA Michael Liebman explained that she used underscore instead of hyphen, so basically her name didn't match the registration (in my experience it happens a lot more with non-Anglo names).
