Looks like his twitter beef has gone to far. He's going to udderly regret the bullshiat he stirred up. I guess he thought he could just milk it for a while and enjoy the attention, not realizing what was at steak here.

I still can't get the image out of my mind that day he ran from the DoJ all the way to the Oval just to give Trump a memo.

What Nunes did was to go to the president, who was being investigated by the FBI and others, and by the intelligence committee, just to give Trump the information first.

The skeevy lickspittle should be put on the next bus to Gitmo.

There were to awesome things that happened in Spanish 1 freshman year in High school:
a) The 20 something year old Japanese teacher ended up being my partner for part of the year. That was really rough, for lack of better word, for a  gawky, nerdy 14 year old overloaded with hormones.
b) It was last hour.  One day the teacher was in a mood by the end of the day.  So thought he'd have a little fun.  As in 'you should probably know when someone is swearing at you in Spanish.'  We could barely conjugate verbs, and here we are learning how to swear.

Judge "wants to know"? That doesn't sound very formal. Please formalize this into an order, your honor. The man isn't being straight with us.

I feel like I've asked several times.

"These circumstances may not ultimately turn out to be 'untoward,'" Roberts wrote, "but they are certainly unusual"

Smart money is on "untoward".

I am also curious to see who is behind the curtain here.

A Mercer?
A Koch?
A Friesse?
A Thiel?

I'm leaning towards Thiel. He's done it in the past ( e g. Gawker) and he would love a win to be able to sue someone that said something mean about him on Twitter.

CCNP: This should be a requirement for every lawsuit. How is the judge supposed to know how to rule without knowing who is paying the lawyers?



as TFA notes, the judge wants to know, who's the real party in interest here:

In his decision this week, Judge Mark Roberts wrote that such a statement "raises legitimate concern about not only who may be in charge of the lawsuit, but also whether Plaintiffs are still the real parties in interest."


Federal courts don't take imaginary cases.  They need actual victims/injured parties.  There was a big to-do about a year ago, I forget the case, but it was dismissed on "standing".  A legal term for, "the injured party is the only person that has the right - "standing" -- to bring this lawsuit.  You are not injured - a loss of property, money, reputation, or liberty (the government is seeking to put your ass in jail/prison) - caused by the person )or the government) you are accusing of such loss.  You do not have "standing".

The federal judge apparently thinks Nunes may be a straw man in this case.  "thanks bro but I need to know whose money is really at issue", is the gist.

secondly, from an ethical standpoint, the actual victim is the client.  If Nunes as plaintiff is in fact the straw man doing someone else's bidding, Nunes is putting his attorney on shaky attorney/client ground.  Only the client can advise the attorney what to do.  If in fact Nunes is a straw man doing a third party's bidding, his attorney is consulting with the third party and/or Nunes, which violates ethical duties to the client.  the Court is basically protecting the defense attorney(s) as well.

"Hey, farko:  i need to know who's ox is really being gored here.  and I'm on a level, protecting you from you, defense counsel."

also, re the judge's ruling re "party in interest", each side must disclose all witnesses / evidence.  If in fact a third party is a client, the opposing side must know.  "my client has a right to a fair trial!" applies to both.

if a third party or, to the judge's order, "possible actual injured party", has information directly relevant to the case (or will be relevant to his defenses), Nunes' team MUST disclose that.  and not day of trial or during.  Well in advance, so that if they don't, the sanction the other side can seek is exclusion of that information, to the trial.  or worse yet, for Nunes, dismissal of the case (which would in all likelihood, be permanent."

"yeah, you sat on this information, were not truthful to the Court or the opposing side, so you came here with 'unclean hands'.  Guess what?  Your claim, due to your willful misconduct, is GAME THE fark OVER."

"and have fun paying their attorney's fees.  MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!"

This isn't for Nunes.  It is for his family's case.  The probable funder is most likely Nunes himself.  He filed a case and it got tossed almost immediately because as a public figure he has almost no chance of meeting the standard for defamation.  So, he had his family sue, since they aren't public figures and the standard is lower.  They have also been pretty methodically slapped down, except for one extremely narrow possibility (they will still probably lose, but thee judge accepted there was at least something vaguely resembling a legal challenge).  But they are also dumb enough to admit they aren't paying their lawyers.  The theory is that Nunes is paying the lawyers and using his family as stalking horses.  If so, the standard of proof goes back up to where it is for him, ie the case gets tossed entirely.
