Poor Donald Verrilli, Warrantless Wiretapping Edition

by evanmcmurry

Let us now continue to cringe on behalf of Poor Donald Verrilli, last seen somehow triumphing in both the SCOTUS oral arguments over the SB 1070 and Obamacare despite needing the world’s biggest glass of water, who now finds himself arguing that the gummiment can’t be sued over secret wiretapping because nobody can prove it exists because it’s secret. Unlike W’s counsel, who made a sport of bending the law into new Kafka shapes, Poor Verrilli doesn’t seem like the type to enjoy the Alice in Wonderland version of civil rights that currently comes with the executive branch. At this point, I have to think he jumps every time the phone rings.
