A former ranking official within the Justice Department is sounding the alarm over a plot to professionally destroy any and all lawyers who were associated with then-President Donald Trump’s cases challenging some electoral results from battleground states where unconstitutional changes to voting procedures took place ahead of the 2020 election.
In an article posted at Revolver News, Jeffrey Clark, a former Assistant Attorney General at the DOJ, writes about “Project 65,” which he said is a plot hatched by left-wing extremists to take down those attorneys in ways that he believes will permanently damage a founding pillar of our legal system, which is part of the scheme as well.
“The evenhanded application of the law is a principle that must be defended. Everywhere, balance and perspective are under attack. Whatever the costs of America’s process-heavy adversarial contests, that feature of our polity is a key bulwark of liberty,” he begins. “Due process is not something to be trifled with, deconstructed, or thrown away based on the passions of the political moment.
“Yet that is happening, right now. The Left has set the lines of battle: Any lawyers who worked for President Trump with verve and ingenuity, along with any lawyers he retained to mount his various 2020 election contests, must be crushed, must have their noses rubbed into the dirt, must, if possible, lose their jobs and even their right to practice law,” he continued. “It’s not right, just as it would not have been right to demonize the lawyers who mounted Al Gore’s challenges to the 2000 presidential election in Florida.”
For those on the left, the rallying cry in this diabolical scheme is “Remember Jan. 6!” — which Clark describes as a “woke version of ‘Remember the Alamo!'” It is a slogan that the left is using to divide and conquer instead of uniting the country under a banner of America-First patriotism, which, of course, is anathema to countercultural left-wing Marxists who abhor the Constitution and the rule of law it represents.
When the Left wants something, you can be sure that limitless streams of money will soon pour forth to fund their destructive crusade. Recently, Axios profiled something significant you might have missed: “Project 65,” a new initiative funded by millions in “dark money” to destroy as many Trump-affiliated lawyers as possible.
At the retail level, Project 65’s purpose is to file bar complaints against 111 lawyers wherever they are licensed. At the wholesale level, it seeks to amend state bar rules, so that no lawyers with a sense of self-preservation will ever again want to bring election-related contests on behalf of President Trump, or any other populist conservative candidate.
Clark says that Project 65 is led by former ‘conservative’ David Brock, who founded the far-left ‘media watchdog’ site Media Matters for America, as well as the super PAC American Bridge 21st Century. Brock’s ‘original sin’ was writing the book, “The Real Anita Hill,” in which he attacked the credibility of the woman who accused Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.
“Brock will be joined by an advisory board that includes former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle [D-S.D.] Clinton affiliate Melissa Moss, and ‘Republican’ Paul Rosenzweig,” Clark wrote, before going on to chastise Rosenzweig, whom he worked with in the Bush 43 administration.
According to Brock, “[Project 65] will not only bring the grievances in the bar complaints but shame them and make them toxic in their communities.” Axios added that Brock’s plan is nothing less than a war of the strong against the weak: “I think the littler fish are probably more vulnerable to what we’re doing… You’re threatening their livelihoods. And you know, they’ve got reputations in their local communities.”
What pieces of garbage these people are.
Later, Clark mentions some names as to who Project 65 will target:
Project 65 plans to target three categories of lawyers: (1) Trump’s inner circle of lawyers, e.g., Jenna Ellis and Boris Epsteyn, (2) lawyers who signed on to be alternate presidential electors; and (3) attorneys who participated in the attack on the Capitol or were simply present at the events of January 6.
Clark concludes: “Attacking the dignity of the bar will be the death knell of our Anglo-American legal system and for fair, competitive politics more generally. Project 65’s lawsuits are an assault on the principle of equal protection under the law and on the Constitution’s Petition Clause. This is a fight that patriotic Americans must win, or the United States will just be the latest example of a republic decayed into a phony, failed oligarchy.”
