What to do about the Justice Dept. Wiretappers: Disbar Them

February 2nd, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

The infamous House FBI memo is out. It says what everybody suspected already, given what’s been in the press, and even the New York Times will have to admit it now: The FBI knowingly used Democrat-funded fake evidence to fool a judge into letting them wiretap an advisor to the Republican candidate. They did this at least seven times. The bosses who signed the applications are James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Dana Boente, Sally Yates, and Rod Rosenstein.

To the best of my knowledge, for a prosecutor to use fraud to get a judge to give him a search warrant is not illegal. Prosecutors have something called “absolute immunity” that is even stronger than police have, so they can commit many crimes without fear of punishment so long as it’s under color of official duty. The judge who was fooled can use his contempt powers, but judges usually are amazingly sympathetic to fellow lawyers, and don’t. I think they rather admire sharp lawyering, in fact. (For most of us, ignorance of the law is no excuse, but for police, it is. For prosecutors, they can even know what they’re doing is illegal and get away with it. Why? I don’t know.)

So what can we do? Ideally, Congress and the President would do something. They have the reponsibility and the power. Probably they won’t because of the Swamp’s attitude that people in DC are above the law and the voters’ acceptance of this attitude. So the question really is, what can *we* do— you and I, dear reader, as individuals.

The best idea I can think of at the moment is to get them disbarred. These people are lawyers, and bar associations accept complaints about lawyers and have the power to block them from practising law. Bar associations are very reluctant to do this unless the lawyer has actually committed a crime. Here, though, we are talking about something fraud, which *is* a crime. It’s just a crime that can’t be prosecuted, because of prosecutorial immunity. Thus, perhaps I will file complaints with the DC or other appropriate bar association. I checked, and it doesn’t look too hard.

Most likely, I won’t get round to it, because I have too much else to do. If any reader wants to do it, though, I can help them. Or if you want to help me, let me know. With my minimal help, you don’t need any skills except small amounts of initiative and tenacity, though those requirements do rule out most people, I’m afraid (and me too).
