[U: On Sanctions] “The Studio” Overrules Trump’s Cast Swap, In Manhattan’s Version Of “Census UN-Reality TV Show”

Breaking: the able USDC Judge Jesse Furman — sitting in the Apple — just declined, as any good studio executive would, to allow a bit player who lied to him, then to engineer a “swap out” of the entire cast. My backgrounder, from yesterday, is here.

[The animated Bill Barr to John Mitchell graphic will run here, since Barr is at least presently threatening, that he possesses the power to bless an executive order from Trump — one that the Supremes specifically ruled out, just two weeks ago — to get the racist question. . . reinstated.] In any event, here it is, per Bloomberg, just now — more as I get it [Update: here is the full three page opinion — indicating that sanctions may lie]:

. . . .U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan called the government’s request “patently deficient,” adding that the U.S. had provided “no reasons, let alone ’satisfactory reasons,’ for the substitution of counsel. . . .”

[All of this in the face of a contrary command, in the US Constitution, at Art. I, Section 2, Clause 3. It speaks of counting free persons, not only citizens — and delegates that duty to the Congress, not the President.]

Ouch. This is going to leave a lasting mark, on all these lawyers’ careers. Trump simply wrecks. . . lives. And he could care less. But these lawyers should have bailed on his lies, long ago. Onward, grinning.
