Discovery Fraud

BankruptcyMisconduct is happy to provide free downloads of documents related to the illegal trick known as #DiscoveryFraud

When lawyers are ordered to produce documents, they must provide them.  When lawyers either directly, or through their clients or hired agents, do not act in good faith to produce documents it is more than just an ethical violation, it is a crime.

Crimes include Spoliation (destruction) and Fabrication (fraudulent creations)

In different contexts, there are more statutes that apply.  A very serious fact is when an investigation or litigation has begun, or the offending party knows it is about to or likely to occur.

Lawyers working for big #HedgeFunds are sadly oftened lured by greed into crimes of #DiscoveryFraud in order to seek favor with their big clients.  The pathetic thing is that these crooked lawyers usually aren't paid anything extra for risking their law license, butt in prison, and families.

#TicToc all you dirty lawyers!

#BankruptcyMisconduct is pondering a page on #CherylMills / #HillaryClinton because their mushrooming legal predicament parallels the #DiscoveryFraud so often seen by dirty #HedgeFunds and their #CrookedLawyers.  (Like we've seen in eToys with Romney and #PaulTraub, & #HowardMarks with #JonesDay crooks)

You've got to read the actual transcript of Ms. Mills deposition, because no one so obviously skirts telling the truth like a lawyer.  Which makes the SEVEN lawyers surrounding Mills, objecting and protecting her from answering, seem sooo superfluous.

And the funniest thing is, the BIG EXCUSE used by the cadre of lawyers on Mills behalf from answering the real meat of the questions, related to Pagliano and the eMail server, was #AttorneyClientPrivilege. That excuse is the "we are lawyers so we can't be held accountable from crimes that normal citizens must avoid".

 Firstly, Attorney/Client privilege is only held by the client, and Hillary Clinton has publicly said that she wants everybody to talk and help the investigation.  Any investigator worth a nickle would walk Hillary into court and force her to revoke that public statement.  Secondly, Attorney/Client privilege terminates by the Crime-Fraud exception.  This seems obvious to normal people, if the lawyer took part in a crime, she can't claim a privilege to protect her co-criminal.

ABA Model Rules

But there is another wrinkle.  Cheryl Mills was a government official, it's only a coincidence that she is also a lawyer.  There was no attorney-client relationship in fact, and it would be quite odd for one government official to get permission from the State Department to simultaneously represent another government official, while each carried out their own tasks.  In short, it is frivolous to claim that Cheryl Mills was acting as counsel to Hillary on the eMail conduct. But even if it did happen, such a relationship is clearly prohibited by the Rules of Professional Conduct for lawyers:

 

Rule 1.11: Special Conflicts of Interest for Former & Current Government Officers & Employees

Client-Lawyer Relationship

(a) Except as law may otherwise expressly permit, a lawyer who has formerly served as a public officer or employee of the government:

(2) shall not otherwise represent a client in connection with a matter in which the lawyer participated personally and substantially as a public officer or employee, unless the appropriate government agency gives its informed consent, confirmed in writing, to the representation.

 

Why #HillaryClinton on #BankruptcyMisconduct?

#HedgeFund managers have been involved in much dirty pool, criminal conduct which seems #AboveTheLaw.  Like take #HowardMarks of #OaktreeCapital for instance. With all of the talk about #HillaryVsHoward we thought it proper to include here the OIG report regarding Hillary Clinton's dubious eMail system she erected while Secretary of State.  At the end of the day, we believe the intention of the personal server was to evade lawful Discovery, in particular under the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA).

You're welcome to compare the audacious Discovery Fraud by the crooked lawyers @JonesDay who represented their conflicted client Oaktree Capital as evidenced by free downloads on this site.
