Weekend At Bernie's

Leftover Turkey

Amuse-bouche:  Monday will bring the latest round of motions filed.  The Government responded, with some very strong language, to the defense request to keep Judge Weisberg on the Wone case.  That of course brought another response from the defense.  And it seems all discovery disputes have been settled; all except for one single item.  These guys are making progress.

Appetizer:  Wednesday’s comment by AnnaZed brought news that those prized Bernie Grimm videos seen in a May post had been deleted from Greta Van Susteren’s foxnews.com blog, the “Greta Wire.” 

Greta shoots her own video for these behind the scenes looks at the show.  We hope the two of Bernie get put back up.  He’s great TV

Bernie’s regular appearances on her show’s legal segments gained him quite a following. 

But he hasn’t been getting nearly as much airtime lately as Greta’s format has shifted more towards politics and away from crime. 

Main course:  A Greta Wire segment from 2 weeks ago has her back with her old friend of 30 years, not sitting on the set, but sitting down to lunch at a splashy DC eatery, maybe Teatro Goldoni somewhere that DC  elite meet to eat meat.

Side dish:  Days after the Greta lunch, the FBI entered the DC offices of Bernie’s firm, Cozen O’Connor, and served a warrant for thousands of documents related to another client of his, David Gaubatz.  Gaubatz and his son are involved in a case involving their alleged filching of documents from CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.   Bernie is teaming with celebrity first amendment attorney Martin Garbus (of Daniel Ellsberg – Pentagon Papers fame) on this case.  World Net Daily and Talking Points Memo have write ups.

Dessert:  Greta’s Bernie-Cam video after the jump.  Bon appetit!

    i wonder if bernie got the crap kicked out of him on “kick a ginger day”.

    i cannot begin to imagine how much bernie has charged to date; and will charge through trial and appeal. i think all of the defense team made recent appearances in the best lawyers in DC — which can only translate to six figure invoices.

    I watched Greta’s show the other night, and it was so boring. Karl Rove, “Turd Blossom” himself, was her main guest: yawn! Bernie provides much more eye-candy than Karl, and, despite his advocacy of Mr. Price, I hope that Bernie returns to her show to save it from Rick Santorum and other Neanderthal windbags who are noticeably deficient in the looks department.

    I still like Greta, though, because she reminds me of a no-nonsense high school gym teacher.

    “those prized Bernie Grimm videos seen in a May post had been deleted from Greta Van Susteren’s foxnews.com blog, the “Greta Wire.”

    They were lingering on youtube (via wmrw), so I DID get to see the change in Bernie’s pencil tray and his dirty blue jeans before they blasted them from the internet forever.

    Why does Greta think that’s interesting?

    That restaurant on K Street looks fabulous; the Great Recession certainly has not reached there yet.

    Many of Bernie’s clients as well as those of Schertler do seem to be on the right wing these days. Nonetheless, CAIR vs. the Gaubatzes is so Alien vs. Predator: no matter what happens to those monsters, one knows that Counselor Grimm will come out ahead.

      The above post does beg the following questions: did the prosecution endorse Judge Weisberg’s continued assignment or not? If the government lawyers objected to Weisberg, then what were their grounds? What is the single matter of discovery still being contested?

        We’re saving all of that for Monday, Pilgrim. There’s plenty of good reading in those motions.

          Thanks, Craig. I cannot wait!

          In the link below, one may find out how judges should not be selected and why Virginians may be surprised by their next “centrist” governor Robert McDonnell. Readers may also find themselves agreeing with the quotes in this article from Culuket himself: sheep’s clothing for the Old Dominion’s wolves is always quite convincing.
