George Webb decided to sue John Podesta, Huma Abedin, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and a host of other names from the #HoaxBomber Caesar Psyop’s rolodex. The basis of the suit? He donated $30 to the DNC, and they conspired to defeat Bernie Sanders unethically in the 2016 Democratic primary.
Predictably, the judge threw the case out. George couldn’t prove that he donated the $30, even if he donated it it didn’t matter, and he didn’t show how any of the people named in the case had anything to do with taking $30 out of his hands to be given as a political contribution.
Now John Podesta via his infamous law firm Perkins Coie is going after George Webb Sweigert for costs. To amplify those costs, they express Saturday delivered an 85-page motion which they’ve just filed in the D.C. court. I’m sure it took quite a lot of time for an $800/hour law firm to deal with this matter. Several junior associates would have to burn the midnight oil writing the brief, then a couple of senior partners would have to run their eyes over it. It wouldn’t be hard to bump the price tag up into the tens of thousands. Now amplify this across a couple dozen people that George served in pro se cases.
Having reflected on it for a while, George insists he proved his whole case in his suit and to ask him to prove that his $27 went from the Sanders campaign to Hillary for America is an onerous burden of proof. He should just be able to get the documents he needs without that.
Some free advice for George, FWIW: remember the First Rule of Holes
