Sanctions and disbarment for any trumper attorney still wasting government funds to provide a personal service to trump. It does seem it should be called open corruption and some people deserve to be criminally charged for it.

I'm hoping the Second Circuit sets a briefing schedule where the reply brief from the DOJ is due in February.

That is actually not an unreasonable time line for them.

Didn't the judge pretty much tell them "Aww, hell no!" last time?  What makes them think this will be different?

Has he ever turned over his DNA in that case?  He was supposed to back in late September/early October I thought, but I never heard if he did

Since Jean Carroll is presumably a taxpayer, the DoJ is effectively asking the court to make her pay for the attorneys trying to get her case dismissed.

And reimbursing the taxpayers.

Jean Carroll has been screwed a lot of ways by Trump, is what you're saying.

Barr needs to be disbarred and possibly put behind bars.

It's not like there's anything else happening.

It'd be a real shame if, for example, 30% of Americans are planning distributed bioterrorist attacks in all 50 states tomorrow.

He absolutely should be put behind bars. The level of corruption is pretty clear to just about anyone who isn't a sycophant and reads to local paper. The only hurdle is, if there is enough blatant evidence to bring it to court for conviction. He's ended investigations into their buddies and obstructed justice while following the direction of the "President" instead of acting as an independent arm of our government. It's obvious corruption and it at the minimum needs to be prosecuted, likely with multiple investigations and charges.

Barr is the pathetic toadie- like toadie in the service of the King of the Toads, if rumors about Prezdent Trump being in a subservient relationship with Putin. are true.

Man! Putin is going to have to teach Donny DeathWish a lesson.

Standard Trump party tactic- simply refile the case over and over.  Since nothing bad ever happens to them for doing this why not give it a shot?

As we live in an infinite universe with infinite possibilities, yes. Yes it is.

The trial judge threw them out.

They are appealing that decision.

That's how you take appeals.  You go to the next higher court where you get a review of the lower court's decision.

At first I read this as "Sanctions and dismemberment."

Did not disagree.
 
2020-11-25 6:10:15 PM  
I will note that the lawyers handling this case for DOJ waited until roughly the last minute to file the notice of appeal, apparently.

They did not file it immediately and seek an expedited hearing or anything.

It feels a bit like they put it on their calendar.  Went to lunch.  Made some calls.  Did some shopping.  Eventually sent an email to the boss, "Hey, um, you saw the news, we lost, right?  So, we're going to get on with our other work if we don't hear back from you."

Barr sends them an email saying, "Appeal!!!"

So they draft it up.  Circulate it around the office.  Re-draft it a bit, using a different typeface.

And then save the form until today and upload it, when they're done with lunch.

And if the briefing schedule means that they end up with a new boss upstairs who has different priorities than Barr, well, that'll be just too bad.

Then they'll log into Fark because, why not?

Lower than any of us can possibly imagine.

Dismantling the planes used for the open skies treaty, along with the Pentagon reshuffle is just the tip of the iceberg. Putin is going to do something rather drastic within the next 6-12 months IMO due to the selling off of all our intelligence. More that trump is in the final stretch, things are going to get much worse.

This might be interesting. We'll see how the appellate court takes it.

Since they didnt ask to expedite it, they may not even get a response till January.

The NSA makes a record of pretty much everything but rarely actually listen to that record but it does exist somewhere in storage.

Ok.

Bill Barr needs to be disbarred and then definitely put behind bars where the other prisoners might possibly beat him with iron bars.

/ I had the extra "possibly" left over after the edit and ran with it there.

On matters of law, ie that the lower court judge applied the law/precedent incorrectly, misinterpreted the relevant law/precedent etc.
