Robert Barnes: "I'll Give You a Little Secret.... Judge Sullivan Is As Dumb as a Pile of Bricks"

This guy posts as Barnes Law on Twitter. I believe he represents some of the parents and students of Covington in their defamation cases, but not Nick Sandmann.

I only specify that because I have previously misidentified him as Sandmann's lawyer.

Anyway:

Barnes says it's "widely known" that Sullivan is "dumb as a pile of bricks," and also widely known that he is almost entirely dependent on his clerks to do his work for him -- which is the reason, Barnes speculates, that he was so absurdly stupid in accusing Flynn of treason. He is dumb, does not read the cases, and barely skimmed the case, and therefore thought that Flynn was somehow implicated in treason.

He noted that the Supreme Court just ruled on the maneuver he is attempting, that is, summoning amicus filings in a criminal case. The Supreme Court said "no." Sullivan ignored that, either because he's ignorant as shit, or didn't read the briefing his clerks had written up for him, or because he's so fucking partisan he doesn't care what the law is.

As you probably know, this idiot, who is supposedly himself a lawyer, and jurist, and learned judge, had to hire his own fucking lawyer to explain to him what the law is.

As others are asking: Does he think the taxpayer should pay for his personal lawyer? Of course he thinks that. Why? Who knows! He's a judge! He gives orders, he doesn't explain himself!

Former Whitewater deputy independent counsel Sol Wisenberg told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Tuesday that the Michael Flynn case judge's "highly unprecedented" move to hire a personal attorney could indicate that he's "in trouble."


U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan's decision to retain high-profile attorney Beth Wilkinson comes as the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals reviews Sullivan's order not to immediately grant the Justice Department's request to dismiss its case against the former national security adviser.

"High profile attorney" means "high cost attorney."

So enjoy Ms. Wilkinson's work, everyone: You're paying for her, because this retard knows he doesn't understand the law and needs someone to write his defense for him.

...

"I think what they're [U.S. appeals court] saying, [is] 'Judge, what are you doing? You better explain what you're doing,'" Wisenberg said. "I interpret it as a flashing neon sign ... a wake-up call to him [to] explain what you're about because the moves he's made have been very, very unusual."

...

Rather than granting the DOJ's dismissal, Sullivan appointed a retired federal judge to argue against the department's position and to consider whether Flynn needed to be held in criminal contempt for perjury.


"There's no question that what he seemed to be doing was delaying this process," Wisenberg explained, " and ... the D.C. Court of appeals [is] saying, 'You're going against clear law here. What are you doing?'"


Back to the video. Robert Barnes says that Sullivan "does not understand the legal basics," which is why he's had to hire a lawyer to explain to him what the law is.

Later in the clip, he discusses the likely outcome in this mandamus hearing. First of all, he thinks there is a "high likelihood" the motion is granted and Sullivan is ordered to dismiss the case. The motion also asks for Sullivan to be recused from the case, and I guess Barnes also means the Court of Appeals will order that as well.

He calls the hiring of a private lawyer with taxpayer funds an "abuse of power," and suggests that Sullivan's cavalier decision to do this suggests that this isn't his first abuse of power.

Unfortunately, he doesn't think that Sullivan will be suspended by the Court of Appeals or suffer any further consequences beyond the extreme embarrassment of being ordered to do his fuckiing job and also being removed from the case for lack of objectivity.

And also: Lack of intelligence.

Hopefully the Court of Appeals will read this dumb bunny the riot act, and then this moron's clerks can explain to him what the words in the order mean.
