Far-right lawyer Larry Klayman 'prosecutes' fake 'trials' of the Bidens — and gets ignored
Far-right attorney, conspiracy theorist and Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman, now 72, has a long history of filing frivolous lawsuits against Democrats. These days, he is furiously raging against President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, claiming that both of them should be subject to citizens' arrests.
Klayman's anti-Bidens fixation is the focus of an article by The Bulwark's Bill Lueders published on August 30.
Describing Klayman's so-called "citizens trials" — which aren't real legal proceedings — Lueders mockingly writes, "President Joe Biden has been tried and convicted on multiple felony charges, along with his son Hunter and brother James. Sentencing was initially slated for August 29, but that has now been pushed back to September 7. These three members of the 'Biden Crime Family,' as it is known, were convicted on August 17 after a bench trial in a Citizens' Court in Boise, Idaho, presided over by Citizens' Judge Michael Pendleton, of charges returned by a Citizens' Grand Jury nearly two years earlier."
Lueders adds, "The prosecutor in the case was Larry Klayman, founder of the groups Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch. The defendants put on no defense, which Klayman took as an admission that their actions — crimes, really — were indefensible."
Lueders isn't saying that he agrees with any of Klayman's over-the-top claims or that his "trials" are actual legal proceedings. Rather, Lueders is describing them to show how extreme Klayman is — and that he hasn't grown any less extreme during the Biden years. Klayman is so far to the right that many hardcore conservatives, over the years, have avoided him like the plague.
Lueders mocks Klayman throughout the article, maintaining a sarcastic tone.
"And now, Klayman, at age 72, has succeeded, through his tireless pursuit of his own version of the law and his own vision of justice, in convicting the president of the United States of serious crimes, and hardly anyone is paying attention," Lueders writes. "How unfair is that? Maybe Klayman should sue somebody."
