  1. He got that vile Ilhan Omar to delete the libelous tweet she sent out last night. I guess the fear of a lawsuit outweighs her desire to spew her bigotry.

  2. Is Robert Barnes a White Supremacist yet?

    And all you other Robert Barneses out there, watch your back. The Twitter mobs are not very discerning.

    No, they haven’t called Barnes a White Supremacist yet.

    But the Washington Post refers to him as “a lawyer popular in pro-Trump circles.”

    Well, he’s popular NOW!

  5. They have to do this. They have to fight. Because 10 years from now, when the kids are trying to get a corporate job or start their own business, the BS lies are going to follow them. Otherwise, they’ll have to carry around a video of what actually happened to prove they were innocent.

  6. “Hee hee! Can’t wait to see what Kathy Griffin does.”

    Gladys, as of this AM, she was tripling down. She’s mental, so this lawsuit would be considered ‘good exposure’ for her. LOL.

  7. Barnes says at the very start of the video “the law says to say anything false about them is libel”. No, that’s slander. Minor point I know, but I would hope my lawyer would instinctively know the difference.
    But I DO hope he squeezes them like toothpaste tube.

  8. F4UCorsair, you made me look:
    •Libel x Slander:
    “Two torts that involve the communication of false information about a person, a group, or an entity such as a corporation.
    —Libel is any Defamation that can be seen, such as a writing, printing, effigy, movie, or statue.
    —Slander is any defamation that is spoken and heard.

    Collectively known as defamation, libel and slander are civil wrongs that harm a reputation; decrease respect, regard, or confidence; or induce disparaging, hostile, or disagreeable opinions or feelings against an individual or entity.”

  9. @Dianny; just taking down a tweet is not enough. They have to be made to acknowledge they wrote it and unconditionally apologize to all involved as well as a promise to be far more careful in the future. Make them grovel.

    I think the fun part is going to be the ones that already took down offensive (possibly criminal) tweets/comments that are wondering whether they can whistle past the grave yard on this or that they’ll be surprised with copies that people took.

  10. Yes, of course. Any democrat who flagrantly violates the law will be let off free if they say ‘i’m sorry’

    meanwhile, flynn papadopolous and all the rest of trump people are being stampeded into jail for nothing.

    that’s the way it always is i for one am fed up with it.

  11. Remember when Clapper and Brennan committed the crimes of lying to congress? Off scott free.

    Now the democrats say they want to investigate Kavanaugh for purjury. Think they’ll let him off scott free?

    It’s like this because we bend over and take it.

  12. I have a great amount of respect for the young man who smiled and tried to de_escalate a very tense situation. I might be embarrassed to tell you what would have happened if these terrorists would have come upon my class of ’81’. Would have been a very different conversation about it today.My hat is off to those young people and their self control. Set the record straight now! Or watch heads roll.

  13. I’m assuming all of you here are beating the bushes (like me) to find those slanderous posts, tweets, and online comments and send this guy’s office a copy?
