Thanks for that! I was worried that I might be losing my mind, because I thought if Bolton had intervened we would have heard about it.

Re: Hijack this thread

Oh my God. I walked up to my local CVS (I was out of beer). Our CVS lets you bring your dog inside (which is awesome). A woman came in behind me with a big dog ( :lovestruck: ) and I walked to the beer aisle. As is typical for me, I had earbuds in and was listening to a podcast (My Favorite Murder)....

Re: White House Impeachment Response Strategy

I haven’t read the brief, but how does Bolton have standing to make that argument? He’s not a party to the lawsuit, is he? He’s not even asking to be a party, is he? This is just weird. It's my understanding that he is a party on the lawsuit. Anyway, I look forward to this particular episode in the...

Re: Intelligence/Judiciary Impeachment Investigation: Trump Obstruction; Suborning Perjury; Whistleblower(s)

I'm wondering if that letter wasn't sent so that when the inevitable retaliation lawsuit comes down, the whistleblower's case isn't dismissed for failure to seek administrative remedies or something along those lines. Except the whistleblower followed the statute, went to the IG of the CIA, then we...

Re: Bowe Bergdahl - IS Charged With Desertion

I have to admit to being of two minds on this. I really would like to know what prompted CAAF. I think it's because CAAF has been dealing with a lot of UCI lately, and this case is an opportunity to discuss appropriate remedies. In the Barry case they threw the whole thing out, and that's what Berg...

Re: The Trial of Schaeffer Cox - GUILTY

This writ still exists to the extent it fills a gap not otherwise available. But Cox has an available remedy: sec. 2255 (habeas corpus). Ultimately, it is the wrong name but the concept is ultimately correct. It'll be interesting to see if a lawyer jumps in to help. Cox has to find and pay for his ...

Re: Bowe Bergdahl - IS Charged With Desertion

I have mixed feelings about this.

But (at least until now) I wouldn't ha...

Re: USA v Michael T. Flynn; USDC for DC; False Statements to FBI; Guilty Plea

Jim, I think I read that if he withdraws the guilty plea, then the government can come back and charge him with a lot more. Seems like he'd like to have it both ways. Yeah, he isn't going to take the chance that if he withdraws the plea the charges might not get dismissed. Then he's fucked. Unless ...
