44. In law school I learned very early on that almost anything can be interpreted or viewed from many

different perspectives. That’s what lawyers do and when necessary try and bend the law to fit their clients factual situation or, on occasion, try and set new precedents. However, the one of the very few indisputable, written in stone things we learn is that “shall”means “must”, not “maybe” but “must”. Practicing for over 30 years as a trial attorney, I am not intimidated by many things in court. However, a sitting Federal judge issuing a court order is not someone or something to be trifled with especially when the law says “shall”. Barr and the DOJ defy the federal judiciary at their own peril. I have gone toe to toe with federal judges but only when I had a legally reasonable argument. Trump’s lawyers should be ashamed of themselves making the absurd arguments they did and should be hauled in front of the ethics committee for lying about not having knowledge of the law as it applied to Clinton and Nixon and congressional oversight of the executive branch.
