The U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General’s Corps on Friday denied a request from Deep State Dr. Fauci to delay his highly anticipated tribunal for one week, a JAG source told Real Raw News. Fauci made the request after learning that his lawyer, Michael B. DeSanctis of the megafirm Jenner & Block, would be unable to attend the tribunal because he and his family had decided suddenly to travel abroad for the Easter holiday and would not return home for at least a week.
DeSanctis is no stranger to GITMO. In 2007, he defended enemy combatant David Hicks, an Australian who had attended Al Qaeda’s Al Farouq training camp in Afghanistan and met with Osama Bin Laden during 2001.
Although DeSanctis has experience in criminal law, his biography on Jenner & Block’s webpage lists his specialties as real estate law, patent law, and intellectual property, so it’s unclear why Fauci, with no shortage of options, had hired a pavid attorney whose current workload is more befitting a paralegal than a lawyer who once stood toe-to-toe with the Office of Military Commissions.
“DeSanctis ghosted Fauci, there’s no other explanation,” our source said. “I highly doubt he picked the last minute to take a trip. He probably knew he was over his head and would get shredded. The guy even stopped returning Fauci’s phone calls.”
Fauci, he added, had written a letter to JAG requesting a 7-day continuance to hire a new attorney, but Vice Adm. Crandall summarily refused the appeal, saying Fauci had more than sufficient time to procure proper counsel.
A military tribunal is unlike a conventional trial in that the defendant, stripped of American citizenship, is called a “detainee” or “enemy combatant” and has few rights. The presence of a defense attorney is more of a courtesy than a requirement.
“The people bought to Guantanamo Bay—their guilt beyond reasonable doubt is established long before they arrive here,” our source said.
Fauci’s trial is set to commence Monday, April 18, at 11:00 a.m.
