Want to know about the terrible decision not to investigate Bill Barr and move to sanction or disbar him? Read from one who knows, Michal Frisch:

I am advised that the District of Columbia Office of Disciplinary Counsel notified the host of attorneys (including several former Bar Presidents) that it would not entertain their complaint filed against the former Attorney General of the United States because the persons who had filed it lack "personal knowledge" of the events at issue.

I was not in any way surprised as ODC investigations are confidential unless and until formal charges are filed.

I fully expected the complainants to not be treated as persons entitled to information about the existence or progress of any investigation by ODC.

I also fully expect that this complaint has been or will be firmly deposited in a circular file and that the reasoning for the decision will never come to light.

But the letter from ODC contains this disturbing sentence

In general, this Office will not intervene in matters that are currently and publicly being discussed in the national political arena

1. Huh? So if you are a mukity muk attorney/politician they won't investigate...

discipline or disbar them no matter what they do? Not surprising though

3. There's an old saw that attorneys ONLY ever get disbarred for mishandling clients' money...

And since Bloaty Bill didn't touch The Dotard's cash, he's not gonna get spanked by the one-R Bar.
