From the Seinfeld episode, "The Raincoats":
ELAINE: But don't you think it's odd . . . ?
JERRY: It is a tad askew.
On January 15, 2010 I was interviewed at my residence by two officers from the U.S. Department of Justice about a law enforcement matter. I have talked about this issue countless times on this blog, always from a slightly different perspective (I say defensively). One issue I have never addressed is the feeling that underlies my ruminations and intellectualizations: -- what feeling underlies the experience and my obsessive need to write about it? One easily identifiable feeling is incredulity. I just cannot escape the lingering feeling of disbelief that anyone reviewing the following facts would not be struck by the strangeness of it all. Is it a symptom of my psychotic thought processes that to me the following collection of facts suggests something suspect about the Justice Department interview?
The DOJ interviewed me at my residence on 1/15/10 because I was calling attention on this blog to a court decision that was contrary to law
that affirmed a prior agency determination that was handed down by a District of Columbia official who had been found to have violated the Hatch Act (indicating that political loyalties for that official were more important than adhering to federal law) and who was later disbarred for misappropriating estate funds (indicating a propensity to engage in unlawful deception).
I was questioned by the DOJ about why I was writing a blog -- a blog that Akin Gump was obsessively interested in
a blog that called attention to matters that embarrassed the law partners of Vernon Jordan -- an individual who is a personal friend of the Attorney General and who reportedly tried to buy the silence of someone who had had illicit sex with the President.
The DOJ tried to assess my feelings about a law partner at Akin Gump (Dennis Race) who had expressly asked that I not publish any statements that embarrassed the firm.
That doesn't seem strange to anybody?? I guess that's why they say I'm nuts. Me and Martha Mitchell!
