Larry Klayman convened one of his “citizen grand juries” in Ocala, Florida recently and the assembled rubes and Tea Party activists handed down indictments against…well, practically everyone. They indicted Obama, Biden, John Roberts and a bevy of other officials for offenses that ranged from the absurd to the surreal. I especially like this one:
U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, for allowing fellow Justice Elena Kagan to participate in the deliberations on the constitutionality of the Patient Care and Affordability Act, also known as Obamacare. Klayman believes Kagan was biased because, prior to her appointment to the court, she defended the healthcare law as U.S. solicitor general.
Uh, Larry…Roberts had nothing to do with it. He has no authority to prevent her from hearing the case, just as he couldn’t prevent Clarence Thomas from hearing it because his wife had worked against the policy under dispute. Every justice decides alone whether to recuse themselves and no one else has the authority to overrule them.
According to Klayman, those who were indicted will be arraigned, then publicly tried sometime in June or July here in Ocala. Klayman is looking for a judge or retired judge to preside over the trial.
“If they don’t show (for the arraignment), we will enter a not-guilty plea for them and they will be tried in absentia,” he said.
IF they don’t show? Seriously? This always reminds me of that scene in A Few Good Men when Caffey suggests that they could hold the trial in the defendant’s barn, with Uncle Elmer as the judge and everyone in costume.
